Community News Update: Monday 8/5

Synthia takes over the GameSpot Community news to talk about what's happening this week, contest winners, and rogue Sarlacc's.

Happy Monday GameSpot Community, Synthia here with another fantastic news report.

What to Look Forward to

As always we have a great lineup of quality GameSpot content scheduled for this week, but in addition to the classics we also have a few new shows.
First up we have The Point with Danny O'Dwyer which airs Wednesday at 12pm PT. Next we have Torture Chamber, Live with Tyler Winegarner this Friday at 1:00pm PT where we stick Eric in a room with some of the most challenging games available.

For this weeks GameSpot Office Tour we’re going to check out Kevin VanOrd’s workspace. How many Assassins Creed things do you think he has lurking in his office?

Community Spotlight

This week we would like to give a special shout to c_rake.

Thank you so much for choosing me! I have had a really rough week, seeing this has put a smile on my face for the first time this week :).


Very grateful,  the message will come from site inbox right?

It's a known fact that all writers secretly seek world domination. Finding work is simply step-one of the operation.

And I'm curious to see what Kevin's desk looks like.


Has anyone received their PM yet?
