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: Sick of being sick

Let me just apologize in advance for the short post today. I've been fighting a sever case of the flu this week and haven't had the opportunity to take any time off from work. Basically, my body is rejecting pretty much every...

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

Friday Night Fights: Happy Holidays

Happy Friday! And what a Friday it is! It's the Friday before Christmas! Hooray! (You can tell I'm excited by the number of exclamation points I've used so far). Anyway, since it's the Friday before Christmas, I was wondering...

[Update: Contest over! Winners have been PM'd their codes.]

Contest time!

The fine folks over at Devolver Digital and Kuno Interactive, were kind enough to give us 15 Steam codes for their new tower defense game, Defense Technica, and we want to give those codes to you!

All you have to do is leave a comment below, that's it. You don't have to make it about anything specific. You don't have to create a poem or limerick. And you don't have to film yourself doing something absolutely stupid (although if you would like to film yourself doing something stupid, I won't stop you.).

The contest will run throughout the night and 15 random people will be sent codes. Easy enough right? 

In the meantime, check out the games being hosted below. Remember, this is all community driven, so anyone can host, even you!
