GameSpot Staff Desk ToursThe GameSpot staff desk tour is back, but delayed again! This week’s GameSpot staff desk tour will spotlight Giancarlo Varanini. Please keep an eye out for this to go up on Friday on our Instagram account!Team Social Content SpotlightThis week’s The Point is pretty clear and simple: it is about GTA V. Danny explores the power of the Grand Theft Auto brand, and explains why it gets so much coverage from the press. He calls this “wide birth”. Whenever Rockstar releases something, we get less press releases and previews. Watch Now.The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD is a lovingly updated version of a timeless, though flawed, adventure. There's no new content in the HD update, so The Wind Waker still moves to the same rhythm as before: its first half is an adventure of thundering and thrilling pace, but an underweight second half stretches itself thin with an exasperating fetch quest that requires deep pockets and a cast-iron level of perseverance. Full Review.Randy, GameSpot’s new managing editor, joined Lark and I on our weekly fireside chat. This week, we featured animated backgrounds for large titles. Internally, we are still figuring out what games will get these specific animations. Lark and I also answered as many questions as possible. Watch Now.Holy smokes Batman! The Warner Bros Montreal developers are hard at work on Batman: Arkham Origins. They are respecting the two previous games and staying true what fans love. Watch Now.Contest Winners!First and foremost, I can will stop thanking each and everyone of you for entering our contest each week. We love giving awesome prizes away. Now on to the winners got last week’s giveaways:There were so many winners of the Special Edition BeMine Series, we could not name them all.
