Welcome to Dtoid's Friday Night Fights for Xbox 360!
FNF is a weekly, community-run event where Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! Planning starts in the forums, followed by posts here in the cblogs and on the front page on Fridays. It's easy to get involved, so why not start today?!
<-- You can read the blog for more info, but here are the basics:
How to FNF
To Play • Leave a comment in the blog or forum post with your Gamertag and which games from the schedule you want to play. More people will show up if they know other people are playing, so speak up!
• Send an Xbox LIVE friend request to the person hosting the game and let them know you're from Dtoid and you're ready to FNF!
To Host • Leave a comment in this blog or the week's forum post listing game you want to play, the time you want to play it, and your Xbox LIVE Gamertag.
• Don't worry about hosting the same game or hosting a game at the same time as someone else. Instead, think of it like a movie theater; more than one game can run at the same time!

What are you doing still reading this?! Let's play some games!
In less than one month, PAX Prime will be happening in Seattle. You all have no idea how excited I am to go to my first convention ever and meet quite a few of you! I feel lucky that my first convention it going to be such a big one and it wouldn't be possible without a great Dtoider (Knutaf)! I have been looking forward to this for so long, I believe it will be the highlight of this year. As much as I want to see you all, I know that is sadly not possible. However, there is a way you can be (sorta) be there!
Around this time, some adoption blogs will start to pop up for the people that can not make the event but wish to be there. All you have to do is write a blog why someone should bring your (awesome) avatar with them on their trip. Dtoid PAX attendees tend to adopt an avatar or two so chances are pretty good that anyone that puts a blog up will get picked up. What happens when you are adopted you ask? Well, pretty much they take a picture of your avatar with them and take photos of your avatar with the likes of the worst community manager, Dtoid's well known revieweror the big man himself. So what are you waiting for, get to writing... after you enjoy tonight's offerings of course!
New to Friday Night Fights? It's easy to get involved!
Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It's a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!
The planning for FNF starts in the forums, where community members volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up here in the cblogs followed by a recap post on the front page on the front page for last-minute planning.
To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! (Don't forget to say you're from Dtoid!) If you'd rather host something yourself, just post your details below in the following format:
Game: Game Name
Host: Dtoid Username
Gamertag: Xbox Live Gamertag
Time: Time (Eastern please!)
We hope to see you online!
