What to look forward to.

Changes to GameSpot's Community Culture

To say that the events that took place on the site last week were "eye opening" would be an understatement. The community team has seen the writing on the wall for some time now and we are now able to implement many of the changes that are needed to keep this community a safe and great place to be. After all, we're just here to play right?

This week's GameSpot Member Spotlight shines on DraugenCP, a system wars member who recently participated in the Pedal to the Metal podcast (hosted by SWM). Go check it out!

A bit about him: "My name is Jesse, I'm 24 years old, and I chose to register on GameSpot many moons ago. Though my activity initially limited itself to reading articles and posting on the forums, I eventually began writing reviews and articles for the user section. Over the years I've developed my own style, approaching games and industry-related developments in a less conventional, more erudite fashion. I've recently graduated from university and am now looking to start my own company for correcting and translating texts."


There's still time left to participate in our GTAV giveaway. We have four total copies to give away to a few lucky Facebook followers! All you have to do is leave a comment on this photo for your chance to win. What other contests do we have in the works? You'll have to check back in on Wednesday to find out!
