Posted on 04/30 23:46 in | 0

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! Well it appears that we have all collectively recovered from our post-PAX East stupor. As the insanity of the last week subsides into memory it appears that the Giant Bomb Community has been creating plenty of non-wrestling experiences on the site.

Mepsipax provides us with a hilarious time-lapse featuring every single one of Drew’s attempt to defeat Cyborg Ninja in Metal Gear Scanlon. Mepsipax also decided to compare Drew’s and Dan’s opinion of the opening set piece of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain between the first and last episode of Metal Gear Scanlon V.

Remember that reverse video of pogs being dumped on Dan that I promoted last week? Here's that, but to the Dead Island trailer music...and you can blame @pepsiman that this officially exists!

Oh we aren't free of PAXAMANIA II's ridiculous nonsense yet! Austin asked for it on Twitter, so Giant Bomb user Kaivyre obliged! Here's a video that merges JoJo's Bizarre Adventure with Professor Killah!
