Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community and I, @zombiepie, am once again honored to be your host this week! With the weekend dominated by Extra Life based tomfoolery, there's a lot to review this week. The schedule for Giant Bomb's Extra Life plans for the event can be found here. Due to scheduling conflicts and personal obligations Jeff and some of the other staff won't be around but are possibly planning on hosting streams the weekend after the main drive. That aside, be aware that the Extra Life page will be up until the end of the year! So if you were unable to donate while the charity drive happened still feel free to donate when you can. With all of this in mind let's move on with the Community Spotlight!
This is the thread that has all of the information on how you can join and support the Giant Bomb Extra Life Team. Feel free to also link to your Twitch channel once you have joined the team as well.
