Time for another Community News Update, we've got a lot to cover so let us get started, shall we?
A look back
Last week starting Thursday, GameSpot kicked off its Extra Life Mega Stream. Staff from all over the globe chimed in and did their part to help us reach our goal of $20,000 for the Children's Hospital and Research Center in Oakland. If you haven't yet shown some love you can still check out our donations page. Remember everyone, #ForTheChildren!
On Monday, we gathered a laundry list of bugs and various pieces of feedback. As with many new sites there have been some obvious growing pains but we're working hard on fixing as many as we can as quickly as possible. As always – If you see something, say something! We have a Bug and Feedback report forum for that very thing and the more people who actively make strides to report errors as they cross their path the better equipped we'll be to handle them.
What to look forward to
Call of Duty: Ghosts releases later this week and our review should be dropping in the twilight hours of the site so be sure to keep an eye out for it if you're interested in what makes this latest addition to the franchise the game for you (you know, if you're into those type of games).
Later this week, we will be having a GameSpot Now Playing with host Peter Brown featuring Resogun – the "intense fast-paced shoot em' up developed exclusively for the PlayStation 4."
This weekend is BlizzCon, boy doesn't time sure fly it seems like only a year ago many Blizzard Bro's were lamenting over the fact that there would be no convention for them in 2012. But this year it appears that they are back with a bigger focus and so of course GameSpot will be there to make note of the action. Follow @PCBrown for updates this weekend from the BlizzCon floor. To celebrate, we also have a giveaway in the work thanks to the folks over at J!NX, so make sure you are following us on Twitter and Facebook so that you can enter to win some free booty!
This week's community spotlight shines on Ivory_Soul, who has written over 600 reviews for GameSpot since he joined back in 2004. Some of his recent reviews include GTAV, The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, and Killer is Dead.
This weekend, GameSpot launched its biggest Facebook giveaway to date. Sorry but it is US only. We're giving away next-gen consoles! GameSpotters who enter will have a chance to win the new Xbox One or a PlayStation 4 (your choice) and if that wasn't enough, the Grand Prize winner will also be getting their choice of five of the top new releases as well as a subscription to the online service of their choice.
