THE CITY Spotlight 2022.09.17

by on

We’ll bring the Grub in the event that you bring the Fun.

Welcome to the most recent edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! I, @zombiepie, am honored to be your host once we look back at the very best community-created works form the prior week. There is lots of gaming-based news to process, but among the bigger ones going to the gaming community involved the recent layoffs that hit Fanbyte. Jeff Grubb has stated that in the coming weeks you will probably visit a strong rotation of former Fanbyte staff as guests on Game Mess Mornings. However, even though many of the staff influenced by the Fanbyte layoffs are friends and supporters of Giant Bomb, the staff and moderation team again plead for you personally all in order to avoid participating in fantasy hirings and “bookings.” While most of us recognize that these comments result from a location of love, they’re distracting for this situation and place the staff and community within an awkward and uncomfortable position. With that taken care of, let’s discuss some site and community-related news!


It's that time of the year again...
It’s that point of the entire year again…

I somehow forgot about any of it the other day, but last weekend marked the beginning of Drew’s yearly fundraiser for Bike MS! Even though all you can perform is spare several dollars, just counts. If you fail to donate, consider sharing Drew’s page with someone you may understand that can donate. He could be, needless to say, a national treasure on the web.

In the event that you were wondering about international shipping status for the brand new t-shirt designs, Mr. Rorie posted an update on the webpage you may be interested reading. Long story short, international shipping is on hiatus before current printing partner successfully reprints the existing batch of ordered shirts. Talking about which, in case you are wondering why your reprints may be delayed, the store’s print partner forgot to create among the brand new shirt designs and in addition forgot the procedure to make the shirt for approximately a month . 5. At this time, the initial batch of orders are listed as “partially shipped.

Finally, IT IS TIME TO DISCUSS EXTRA LIFE 2022! Giant Bomb’s Team Page for Extra Life 2022 is up and you will join once you can! Even though you feel just like it is possible to only raise a little amount, please contemplate joining the group because just counts! The team goal this season is $223,566


Hi Internet! I’m Drew which IS MY FACE.

If this GIF has ever brought you joy during the past, I humbly request you to consider creating a donation to the National MS Society. It could mean too much to me also to those I understand affected by the condition!
