Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight and I, @zombiepie, am honored to be your host this week! I can feel it, I can feel the heat of Summer and the deluge of E3 nonsense right around the corner. I bet many of you feel the same way. Hopefully the "Summer game drought," won't be as bad as it normally is, and the Steam Summer Sale lives up to everyone's expectations. I don't know about you, but I need at least one of the quarters of the year to go off without a hitch. But whatever, you didn't come here to listen to me rant about our poor position in the greater world, so let's jump right into the site related housekeeping!
