PC Friday Night Fights: "Diamond Dogs, our new home."



I've been thinking for a long ten minutes now as to what I should write this about. The only thing I can think of is Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, because of course. I recently transferred servers to be with a few friends, with more friends joining when the PlayStation 4 version comes out next month. I created a new Free Company, based off an idea Philanthr0py gave me, called Diamond Dogs, based off the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V. We're on Ultros, so if you're on that server feel free to hit up my main character, Swishiee Swisherton.

As for FNF news, there's nothing much going on tonight. We have the usual TF2 and that's it. We do have a new member to the PC FNF team, who will be writing his first post next week, Shadow2398, aka Hank Hill from the TF2 server. So expect to see more blogs happening on a regular basis again!

PC Friday Night Fights: ALL ABOARD!



Another year has passed. And with a new year comes a new season of Sentai. Kyoryuger came and went, and it was fantastic. Now it's time for a new team. A team that uses their imagination, and trains, to win fights. They're Ressha Sentai ToQger. And they're bringing the pain train (pun intended) to evil. CHOO CHOO MOTHERFUCKERS.

It's been a while since we've had a blog. Busy at work, busy at home, and a constantly changing schedule makes me forget when Friday is until I get there. Due to this, I'm looking for help from folks wanting to help keep this blog going. I don't plan on stopping, but it's been a few weeks without a blog post, so some help would be nice. If interested, hit me up via Dtoid PM, or on Twitter at @Swishiee and we'll talk.

Friday Night Fights is now departing. Please stand behind the white line.

PC Friday Night Fights: Late Starts



It's Friday again? These past couple weeks have been a blur, and I didn't even realize it was Friday. So here's a post! Not much to say here. I honestly forgot to write one last night, and I usually take more time writing these on Thursday night, with a theme planned and everything. Oh well. Let's just get to it!

PC Friday Night Fights: Long time no see?



Hey hey, everyone. It's been a little while. Sorry for no blog post for a while. We've been... busy... I think? Anyway, sup? How are you? I'm good I suppose. We don't really have any games tonight. pk fire is planning on hosting a game if he can get it online alright. And I will be playing Final Fantasy XIV until the end of time... and Awesomenauts. So let's do this!

(I didn't have a blog theme for this week for videos or header and footer images, so uh... Have some of my random FFXIV screenshots?)

PC Friday Night Fights: It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year



It's once again that time of year. Christmas? Forget that. The Steam Holiday Sale. The sale that makes me too broke for last minute presents. Surprisingly, however, the sale has been going for 24 hours and I haven't bought anything... yet. This normally happens every year with me, where I start the sale not really wanting anything, but end up buying tons of stuff.

Oh yeah. I guess it's also Christmas time too. Christmas events have started in two of my favorite games: Final Fantasy XIV, and Team Fortress 2. I've made sure to have the TF2 server updated for the event, so why not stop by for a bit and play?

And remember, next week, when you're with your family for Christmas (or Wednesday for those who don't celebrate), don't forget when you're sitting around the tree to praise Gaben.

PC Friday Night Fights: The Blackest of Black Fridays



So who bought what as part of a sale this weekend? I bought a couple Kingdom Hearts games on Amazon, as well as the Mega64 BluRay set seen in the video above. Retail wise, I haven't bought anything, mainly because shopping on Thanksgiving, as well as stores being open on Thanksgiving, is bullshit. But, with what I've been hearing about the stores yesterday, Thanksgiving shopping is here to stay. Bullshit.

But I'm not here to complain about how stupid and mindless consumers are, nor how greedy or heartless the heads of some of the retail chains are. I'm here to heartlessly and mindlessly make you all fight. We got a lot of games today, so there's most likely something you will like. So let's do it!

(Sorry for the crudity of this blog. I'm at work so I don't have much time for images or anything like that. I have no idea what the video link is for below, but I'm going to post it anyway.)

PC Friday Night Figts: The Next Generation Has Been Here For a Year



So. How about that PlayStation 4, eh? It came out today. Then you've got that Xbox One next week. That's a thing. So what about us? PC elitists would say that the next generation has been upon us for a while now. And you know what? They're right. Windows 8 is the next generation in computing, with Livetiles to give you notifications without even opening an app, and a smooth touchscreen interface. And if you're already a Windows 8 customer, upgrade to Windows 8.1 now, for an even smoother and reliable experience. And forget what I said about the Xbox One being for "everyone else" earlier. Buy seven for yourself.

Oh. I guess you guys are doing this Friday Night Fights thing. Well, it's a good thing you're most likely doing so on a Windows operating system! Wanting to play some of these games on MacOS or Linux? Deal with it... Wait. I'm being told lots of these games are now coming to those OS's. Ummmm... PLEASE BUY WINDOWS AND XBOX PLEASE.

PC Friday Night Fights - FYF Edition

Hey everyone, Phil here. If you're wondering what FYF stands for, it's Fuck You Friday. My brother started calling Fridays this, because for both of us Fridays always suck. This one kicked off in a horrid way for me too. But that's ok. Because at the end of every Friday is FNF to let me unwind. I'll be on PS3 this week @ 10pm PST with some GTA Online (Just got it), but I will return to my PC brothers and sisters next week with some of usual odd and niche games. -Love you guys.

PC Friday Night Fights: I'm going to Disneyland!



This weekend will mark the first time I've gone to Disneyland in nearly 15 years. I'm pretty dang excited. Not only is this my first time going in ages, but I'm also going for Mega64's Game Days event. Saturday involves a panel where Mega64 is going to be showing off new videos and other things, and I'll be going to California Adventure after (Last time I went to Disneyland they were still building California Adventure). Then on Sunday is a group outing to Disneyland with Mega64 and the Internet Soldierz (Mega64's name for their fans). I'm a huge fan of Mega64 and they're always one of the highlights of PAX for me, so I can't wait to see them again. Not to mention Disneyland. If anyone happens to be going to Game Days, feel free to say hi or something!

As for fights, there's not much going on. But good news everyone! I have the day off, so I'm finally going to host something again! It's going to be semi-early though, since I'm going to be leaving to go out of town later in the evening. So let's fight, alright?

PC Friday Night Fights: Tired/Sick/Etc



Shortpost is short. I just got done hosting my new-ish Streamtoid show, iSwishiee. Plus I'm tired, and am sick, so I'm keeping it brief. Friday Night Fights. Yeah! Woo! Fight! I'm gonna go lie down now. Images are FFXIV screenshots because what else do I play? Plus I was able to get the quick.

PC Friday Night Fights: Don't stop me now.



I need help. I can't stop playing Final Fantasy XIV. Any of my free time goes to that, or sometimes Grand Theft Auto V. I bet you're all tired of me talking about it, too. Help me guys. It has its hold on me and I... I like it. I'm almost level 50 with my Warrior. Then I get to start doing some endgame content. 

If you need me, I'll be playing more FFXIV. You don't need me though.
