Community Check In: New Strawberry Flavor

Community Check in time! Fun Fact: Today is Strawberry Parfait Day, and who doesn't love a good Parfait?


Due to unforeseen issues both On the Spot will not be returning this week. Additionally, there will not likely be a return of the show until after Comic-Con. But fear not, words and whispers of an upgraded format have been circulating the office. More info on that will be posted when more information is obtained.

Chalk Talk: What is it? - To sum things up quickly, it is the new way for users blogs to be featured here on GameSpot. Later this week there will be a community news report on what it is, how it will work, and why you want to be a part of it.

What’s Happening

15 days left until SDCC 2012!
Getting closer and closer to SDCC and we’re already brimming with ideas for what to show off before, during, and after Comic-Con. Want to share your two cents? Be sure to tell us what you want to see in the comments below. We’ve already mentioned one of our Comic Con activities which can be found here. And as an added piece of information the fabulous Video Viking Colin will be joining us again this year to operate the Live Cam!

Now Playing

This week on Now Playing we’ll be checking out some Skyrim: Dawnguard with Kevin Van Ord on Tuesday June 26th @ 11:00am PT. Not able to make it? Well you’ll still have a chance to socilaize on Wednesday when we show off a plethora of PC titles; including Endless Space, Quantum Conundrum, Spellforce 2, and Krater @11:00am PT.

Breakfast with Community

Here’s a bit of an update with Community, we’ll tease a bit about “Chalk Talk” the games we’ve played, and share an awesome blog by GameSpotter zanelli. There’s also a chance to win some cool Star Wars: The Old Republic swag for participating in the community activity! Also, you may have noticed the lack of a “cool image”. No that’s not an oversight, GameSpot Community is currently looking for a nifty logo! Please send any submissions or ideas to with the subject: Breakfast With Community.

I don't care what it's called--As long as *some* form of the soapbox is returning, I'm stoked.


I'm neither Rebel, nor Empire. I am Sith. Any organization I side with would only be a means to an end, which they would find out to their chagrin when I am done with them. Lately, it's been the Empire, they have nice toys.


That book is nice.


Normally, I'd like the T-shirts, the front is cool, but my bum refuses to advertise. If only those logos were higher. Oy vey.

Cool, thanks for the update. I'll be sure to check out this Chalk-Talk soon


About the logo, is it a logo of Gamespot? you guys are looking for a new logo? Anyways, I am excited to see a great CC this year ;)


For Comic-Con, I want GameSpot to focus more on gaming instead of non-gaming aspects such as comics. Afterall, this is a gaming site.
