Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight and I, @zombiepie, am again honored to be your host this week. The Bombcast celebrated its 500th episode! Thank you to everyone who sent in a story of your favorite Bombcast moment. Here's to another five-hundred episodes. If you live underneath a rock and somehow managed to miss it, the Giant Bomb staff plugged in almost a day's worth of time into Destiny 2. Please have them in your thoughts and prayers as they recover over the weekend and hopefully re-attempt the raid this coming Monday. Without further ado, let's talk about the site related housekeeping!
- Here's an archive of Brad's perspective during the second raid attempt. Here's Dan's perspective for those who are interested.
- There are two new Giant Bomb shirts available now!
- Jeff Bakalar's "The 404 Show" recorded its final episodeafter ten years of being on the air. Check it out, and don't worry, Jeff will continue to appear on the Beastcast.
- As always, don't forget about Extra-Life 2017! This week @hamst3r created an AWESOME promotional video for the Giant Bomb Extra-Life Team:
