Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight and I, @zombiepie, am honored to be your host as we look back at the best and most creative user-created offerings from the previous week. For many, the fight to end police brutality and fair access to safety rightfully continues this week and every week afterwards. This site continues to remain, as it did last week, in support of Black Lives Matter and that will always be the case. Down below I will continue to refer to Giant Bomb’s BLM charity efforts as well as GameSpot’s charity efforts to assist operations fighting for equality and basic human rights in the United States and elsewhere. With that in mind, let’s review the housekeeping and stay safe everyone!
