Friday Night Fights: My apologies

Happy Friday everyone! Sorry for the short post today, I was called in to work early and, well, this is basically all the time I had to work on the post this week. I hope everyone has a great time gaming tonight and I may see some of you on the PS4 side of business, a bit later though, let's say 10:30ish EST.

Friday Night Fights: I'm not dead

Ha ha, oh that Andy Dixon.... As you can clearly see, I am not dead, nor was I dead at any time last week. I have however been dead, sort of, due to being electrocuted while working as a construction worker, but that's a stor...

Friday Night Fights: Bill is dead

Welcome to another exciting edition of Dtoid's Friday Night Fights! As you may have gathered from the title, Bill is dead, which makes me the new Bill. Well, at least until he resurrects next week like the premature Jesus he is, anyway. But in the meantime, you're stuck with me. Only I don't remember how this is supposed to work, so... Boners?

Friday Night Fights: Just like old times

What a week. Seriously. You ever have one of those weeks where each passing day has you saying "It can't possibly get any worse than this"? I've had one of those weeks, and I'm glad that it's almost over. Just when I thought ...

Happy Friday! I want to take a few minutes of everyone's time today to talk about someone, very special to the Destructoid Community. Rick "King Foom" Olson has been a staple of the Destructoid community for years. His humor,...

Friday Night Fights: Apple pie

Today's post is gonna be pretty short.  My employee's decided that they wanted to throw a potluck at work today. I was in charge of desserts. So being the nice guy I am, I made a blueberry pie, apple pie and bacon browni...

Friday Night Fights: Going for the gold

 I was originally going to go with a header image that showed how amazing the living conditions in Sochi are for the athletes and reporters, but then thought to myself, "Nah, it's bad enough they have to live like that f...

Friday Night Fights: SK8 or die!

Look, I make no bones about how old I am. I've never hid my age from anyone and I know my limits. Turning 40, as I recently did, tends to make people feel like, they need to finally grow up, finally become an adult. To hell w...

Friday Night Fights: Who has the time?

I don't know about the rest of you, but lately I've had almost no time to play games. If it's not my job keeping me busy, what seems like 24 hours a day, it's almost always something else. Field trips, doctor's appointments, ...

Friday Night Fights: Building relationships

Short post will be short today, my apologies in advance. Happy Friday! Not much to see here today, I'm currently out chaperoning my daughters class trip to LegoLand. I'm sure I'm having a blast right now, chasing kids around a theme park and generally being worn out. I hope all of you have a blast tonight playing games with each other, play a few rounds for me!

[Update: Contest over! Winners will be notified soon!]

Happy Friday everyone!

The fine folks over at Image & Form have bestowed upon me 10 codes (5 Steam and 5 3DS eShop) for their ridiculously addicting and widely acclaimed game, SteamWorld Dig.

For those of you not familiar with SteamWorld Dig, you can check out Destructoid's Review of it here. I personally rated it as one of my top ten games of the year, and honestly cannot recommend it enough.

Now, I know what you're thinking, "What the hell are we going to have to do to get our hands on one of those codes?!" -- it's easy really, simply tell me in the comments below, what you would want to find at the bottom of a mine. Ten lucky winners will walk away with a free code for their platform of choice. Please make sure to specify in your comment which platform you prefer (Steam or 3DS eShop).

The contest will end, Sunday, January 4th at 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time.

*Note - eShop codes are NA only
