Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight and I, @zombiepie, am once again honored to be your host this week.

Users can also gift premium subscriptions to other Giant Bomb users! Might I recommend the video feature for Contradiction: Spot The Liar! or Metal Gear Scanlon for new subscribers?
