The Controller Episode 7 and Ask Mrs Violence
It has been quite an exciting few weeks on The Controller, and with the wrap of episode seven, we have only one episode remaining before the winner is crowned and walks off into the sunset with 50K. Mrs Violence has been a force to reckon with since the beginning (well maybe not in the first physical challenge).

Member Spotlight

This week's member Spotlight shines on the artistic talent of GameSpotter bbkkristian for an amazing Skyward Sword painting. Click here to take a look at this amazing piece of art work.

Union of the Week

This week's featured union is the First Minecraft Union. Established in March of this year, this union is the premier place to go to discuss Minecraft. They have videos of some of their fantastic creations, and they are clearly excited about the release of 1.9. Drop by to see what they have going on.

Tip of the Week - Terms of Service: Understanding Updates

Did you know that things were changing on GameSpot? No? Well, after asking for your opinion on things around the site, there are a few major changes coming to the way things work around the site. However, it is important to make note that the changes have not taken effect, and the TOU is still the same. When can you expect to see the changes? Soon, very soon. But it's important to remember that until those changes happen, make sure you still follow the current TOU.

I would probably try to get across that the ToU is not active because people are already starting.

Damn it. I misread the topic. I confused the 'N' for a 'W'. Silly me. :P

"Mrs Violence has been a force to reckon with since the beginning (well maybe not in the first physical challenge)." I don't remember them ever winning anything yet. At least none of the three or four money games they have had.
