Game Night 2011 Lineup
After a bit of a vacation, we kicked off game nights with a bang. Portal Kombat was a success as we watched GameSpot staff show off some of the finer points of Mortal Kombat 9. As for Portal 2, well with PSN still being down, we didn't quite get to show off all the bells and whistles of its co-op mode, but we did what we could. Now, we ask you good GameSpotters, what games do YOU want to see during this year's lineup? We've started a few discussions in the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and General Game Discussion Boards in hopes of getting into your brains to find out what games you want to see and play. Feel free to also stop by the Game Night Union for more updates about future Game Nights here.
Week Four Mr. Riddles Answers Activity
We are entering week four of our GS-Riddles Answer Activity, and so far, things have been going well. Those who participated in the activity were awarded profile points, an immediate mention so they could brag to their friends, and a shiny rare and new emblem. After this week, only two weeks remain to become a proud owner of the Mr. Riddles emblem and be known throughout the land of GameSpot as an Answers Expert.
This week's member spotlight goes to 2ndWonder for his fantastic blog about the importance of Video Game History Month. Powerful stuff really, with an in-depth look at many of his favorite GameSpot contributions, really awesome job!
