Community News - For those of you with time to come up for air, here's some of the community happenings that you may have missed over the past couple of weeks:

Hello there, gentle readers! Hopefully you're surviving the busy fall/winter release season with your thumbs fully intact. For those of you with time to come up for air, here's some of the community happenings that you may have missed over the past couple of weeks:

Wide Forums!

Bigger, longer, and uncut, the wide version of our forums launched this Monday. Though mainly a cosmetic change to match the rest of the site, we've sprinkled some additions here and there to enhance your forum-browsing experience. Enjoy the new boards, and if you've got suggestions for us, of course we'd love to hear them! Get thee to the Site Enhancements & Feedback forum and drop your pearls of wisdom.

Community Video Blog!

Join Sondra, Jody and I as we chat on-video about fun stuff going on around the site! Learn helpful tips that will keep you from getting banned! See Sophia's awesome homemade Sackboy! It's so great, we brought cake. (No pie. Get out of here, pie-lovers, you'll have your day when Don video blogs.)

Contests and Emblems!

The end of October saw the conclusion of our first Halloweenmania Scavenger Hunt, and now many users sport the super-attractive emblems of skilled participants. BEWARE THE HALLOWIENER! Those who tuned in to our Gears of War 2 gameplay marathon and enjoyed the resulting bloodbath were provided with… a bloodbath. Doesn't that just look so inviting?

Thanksgiving's coming up soon. Boy, wouldn't that be a good time for another contest, hmm? I wonder…

November Mod of the Month!

Duxup is the winner of this month's award, and it's because he's awesome. There's a distinct possibility that he also bribed the voters with delicious candy, but we're pretty sure he's awesome. He helps keep the community clean for you and has done so for some time, so give him props!

For anyone who is a tom clancy fan such as myself and a top notch splintercell expert,the new splintercell conviction game is said to be released in feb.2,2009.you may not want to get your hopes up because as we all know splintercell conviction has been delayed for half a year so don't be suprised if it's delayed again in february

Yeah, I could have gotten the three emblems, but the blood bath wasn't my style.
