The Community Spotlight features some of the best unedited articles that didn't quite make the front page. This week's smaller collection features a wish list of characters for the upcoming comic-book brawler Injustice: Gods Among Us, a different take on Nintendo's future, and a plea for reason in the industry.

By William Harrison
After the lackluster fighter Mortal Kombat vs. DC, developer NetherRealm is trying its hand at another superhero title. And Will has high hopes for this new attempt, especially if they include some of his favorite lower-profile characters. Totally with you on Larfleeze, dude.
The Nintenocalypse and you
By David Graham
We've seen several articles on the 'Mob in the last few weeks — some of them in previous Spotlights — expressing doubts about the direction of the Big N.

He writes: "…If we don't need to grow up, we do need to grow, and growth can only occur if it's not stifled in the very stages of seeding." Preach, brother.
