- The Community Spotlight - 03/11/2017 Mar 12, 2017
Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight and I, ZombiePie, am honored to be your host this week. This is the week of PAX East, and as you can expect there is going to be a bunch of Giant Bomb related tomfoolery to be had. Simultaneously, be aware that video content from the event takes a few days before it is posted on the site. Without further ado, let's get on with the site related housekeeping:
- Some users have reported issues streaming premium videos on PS4. If this issue has afflicted you feel free to let out a yelp over here.
- The Sisyphean reaction video factory that is the Fine Brother's recently published reaction video related to Jeff tasting a Nintendo Switch cartridge.
- Hopefully you can beatbox better than Dan:
