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!
This is the reason why I haven't touched my 360 for an entire week.
Now I know what you may be thinking, "Hey, isn't this the Xbox 360 FNF Blog Post?". Why yes, yes it is. You see however, there is this game, this gloriously wonderful game that has literally sucked away all of my free gaming time.
That game my friends, is Fire Emblem: Awakening. My time, as of late has not been very open or flexible for video games. For the past few weeks I've been extremely busy and just haven't had a lot of time to devote to playing anything, regardless of console. I have had a chance to slip in a few rounds of BF3 here and there but it's just been scattered play time, nothing meaningful.
Now I finally have some time to sit down, jump on my 360 and get back to playing games with my friend! But I haven't, all because of Fire Emblem: Awakening and how absolutely amazing this game is.
I won't wont sit here and write a three paragraph story of me gushing over the game or anything, but I will say that right now (and yes, I know it's only February), Fire Emblem: Awakening is my game of the year and for me at least, it's going to take one hell of a game, regardless of platform to dethrone this champion.
Anyways... Since you're all here for the 360 FNF, let's get to the games!!
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!
