The Community Spotlight – 07/21/2018

How far we have come….

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. Ten years.

Now, I’ll spare you the usual rigmarole about good times and bad times on Giant Bomb. Instead, I just want to thank every staff member, designer,…

When a new SegaWorld opened up on the slightly tatty seafront at the foot of Brighton’s Madeira Drive a good few years back, I was at the peak of my obsession with the company who’d brought blue sky joy to so many. And so I decided to head down to the opening in the Sega T-shirt I’d made myself to show my support, and at least one person appreciated the effort; someone in a slightly tatty Sonic the Hedgehog costume, who gave me a big, bright blue lollipop…

For 3 years in a row, Ubisoft had the first half of the year on lockdown

For three years in a row, Ubisoft has quietly been laying claim to the first half of the year.

Ubisoft was the the publisher with the best-selling game in the industry for the years 2016, 2017, and 2018. The company essentially had the first six months of the year figured out.

Ubisoft has been releasing one big blockbuster game every March, which goes on to become the year’s best-seller until some other heavy-hitter joins the fray. It successfully did this with The Division in 2016, Ghost…

Konami kills the P.T. for PC horror remake, but at least the creator got an internship

Horror curio P.T. (short for Playable Teaser) was notable for a couple of reasons. It was one of Hideo Kojima’s last projects before leaving Konami, and – once he left – was expunged from the PlayStation Store, so it couldn’t even be redownloaded by those that had owned it. Now, a project to rebuild the nightmarish nugget for PC has been quashed by Konami. 

17-year-old developer Qimsar decided to remake the game for PC, and released a free downloadable build via the site GameJolt. Now…
