  • Need for Speed has more than just fistbumps (but not a whole lot more...) and you can find out what else awaits you on its wiki page.
  • Get caught up with Fallout before the fourth core game shows up with our comprehensive franchise page.
  • We've seen a lot of recent work on Atari Jaguar pages, for some reason. Check out these two Jaguar "Mortal Kombat killers": Kasumi Ninja and Ultra Vortek.

Oh hell yeah, new Best of video.

Also, I never really had a real reason for these outside of an occasional blog I missed, but since I spent the past week focusing on schoolwork, this is a nice thing to have since I haven't seen any of the stuff showcased.

Has the Drew and Alexis stream been archived somewhere? Looks like a lot of halo goodness.

I cannot find an archive of this stream anywhere on Giant Bomb, nor the darkest reaches of the internet. Please keep me updated if you catch it anywhere!

Unless I am mistaken, and @matt can correct me, Giant Bomb alone collected: $92,591. As a team we collected: $164,825.

Hey thanks @zombiepie having my artwork up on the site! I super duper appreciate it man!

No problem! Keep me updated if you create any other Giant Bomb themed works of art! In fact always feel free to post it on the Community Spotlight for a little extra exposure.

I have you down for the next Spotlight ~~~Hamst3r-kun~~~!!!!

Kawaii ~~ DESU!! DESU!!

So how did everything go for your stream? How much did you end up raising?

Oh hell yeah, new Best of video.

Also, I never really had a real reason for these outside of an occasional blog I missed, but since I spent the past week focusing on schoolwork, this is a nice thing to have since I haven't seen any of the stuff showcased.

Thanks for the kind words, and always remember to drop a link to anything that you have found on the site you beleive is worth showcasing.

It can even be something that you made.

@zombiepie: Oh, I've been showcased before, but for the most part I only skim through the contents.

@zombiepie: I'm currently at $105! Which is better than the $0 I had over the weekend! I'm going to keep trying to stream and get my total up as high as possible for the team before the donation period ends!

There are plenty of people to thank for making Extra Life awesome this year, and one of them is @matt

This is a really cool way to compile content. I love the Best of Giant Bomb series. I've watched the two E3 episodes probably six times each.

Since you asked for contributions, I did a user review of Need for Speed. I mostly enjoyed the game, minus some major issues.
