These are the
These are the "Top Men" of Giant Bomb!

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community, and I'm your host as always! It's a slow week in terms of games but there's plenty of video content to enjoy this week. You got three Bombasticas, plenty of Quick Looks, Icelandic text and video content, and plenty of other great stuff to mull over. That said if you were on the site at any point earlier in the week you may have had issues with editing the wiki or posting on the site. Following that there were issues with the moderation tools that involved users getting necessarily banned without warning. If you ever have these issues never hesitate to attempt to contact @rorie our new Community Manager, he'll get to the bottom of anything now. At least that's what I have been told they are paying for...jeez I hope they are paying him. Speaking of Rorie, he may be on the Guinness Book of World Records as being the first person to write a blog about unemployment with pictures of puppies in it. Also great work Giant Bomb Community in your input on where the Mega Man series should go next:
