Giant Bomb Community Spotlight: 15th Anniversary of the Persona 4 Endurance Run!

It's been a week since the last Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! It's been 15 years since the start of the Giant Bomb Persona 4 Endurance Run, and there's plenty to say about it. It's a testament to the impact and influence of the series that it has inspired many fan creations. This week, the Giant Bomb community is celebrating this milestone with some awesome fan art!

In other news, Giant Bomb staff member Jan received a fantastic Brian Cox cameo for Mike Miquanchi from community member pugtato. Everyone should check out the awesome reaction stream to Dan's travel video. You can also see the art of jearum, who has been creating Giant Bomb fan art for a long time, on their ko-fi account. Even if BlueSky is no longer in its invite-only stage, it's a good idea to follow the Giant Bomb staff and myself on the platform.

This week, community member Kone used Photoshop to give Dan a new look reminiscent of Carmen Sandiego from the cartoon series "Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?" They also made an album cover for Blight Club that captures the spirit of the series.

Community member TheMaximumYeti paid tribute to Tail of the Sun with a post featuring staff members as characters from the game.

Community members KinguAmoz, LoungerLoun1, and JupiterJazz92 answered last week's call for memes featuring Mike Miquanchi as Quan Chi from Mortal Kombat. UnusedCow had some fun making animated gifs of Jeff Grubb that are sure to haunt your dreams. Make sure to join the Giant Bomb Discord to catch community-created goodies like this whenever they drop!

In the world of gaming, discussion, and more, there have been some exciting developments. The Giant Bomb Album of the Week club is discussing Guns by Quelle Chris. The Unofficial Giant Bomb Game Pass Game Club is discussing Turnip Boy Robs a Bank by Snoozy Kazoo. Voting is still open for the next cycle starting on February 12, so be sure to cast your vote!

Moderator Mento has been busy with "Mega Archive" posts featuring retro games like Aero the Acro-Bat, Snake Rattle 'n Roll, Boxing Legends of the Ring, Haunting Starring Polterguy, Shining Force II, and more. They also shared their thoughts on the indie game Suzy Cube. For those who prefer indies over AAA titles, give it a try!

Moderator Gamer_152's retrospective on the Pikmin series continues with a look at Pikmin 3 and its transition from the Wii U to the Switch.

This week also marks the 15th anniversary of the Giant Bomb Persona 4 Endurance Run, one of the site's most significant video series. It would be best if you chime in about your favourite moments and whether you still name your video game protagonists "Charlie Tunoku."

Finally, some exciting news for fans of Toys for Bob, the studio behind the recently released Spyro Reignited Trilogy and the upcoming Crash Bandicoot 4. Numerous reports have stated that the company has laid off around 80 staff members as part of Microsoft's recent restructuring and Activision Blizzard. Stephen Totilo, a reporter from GamesBeat, broke the news, and community member bigsocrates started a discussion thread to keep fans updated on the developing situation.

There have also been some interesting developments regarding Microsoft's plans for its games. Several rumours suggest that Microsoft may publish several of its "exclusives" on the PS5. Are you buying into these rumours? If this happens, will it signal Microsoft becoming a third-party publisher?

Community member captainofthestars has a list of the most infuriating video game enemies they have ever fought. Be sure to check out the list and add your thoughts on video game baddies that get your goat.

Finally, reviewer doomocrat's "Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth" review is available for fans who want to know more about the game. Although it had some fun moments, it didn't quite reach the highs of the series. @sbc515's The Last of Us Part II review is also available for those interested in learning why the game didn't work for them.

As always, don't forget to check out the Giant Bomb Wiki Page of the Week, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4. This anniversary is a perfect time to visit this amazing wiki page for the original game. Even though it has been edited several times since the series ended, it is a testament to the incredible work done on the wiki in its early days.

Thanks for reading! I'll see you all next week for another Giant Bomb Community Spotlight!
