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!
"Stop whatcha doin' 'cause I'm about to ruin the image and the style that ya used to.
I look funny but yo I'm makin' money see so yo world I hope you're ready for me."
Apparently the world was indeed ready for more Master Chief, every day this week that I've logged in to my 360 it seems as though my entire friends list is playing Halo 4 (minus one or two people).
I'm sure it's a super fun game, and I'm sure that the fans of the series are having a blast. I'll get around to playing it some time, probably after the new year. There are more important games (for me anyway) coming out this year (what's left of it) that I want to play and quite honestly, I have very little interest in playing any more Halo games (unless they're like ODST, then I'm all for it).
Anywho... Hey, did y'all hear that there's a Destructoid Community Playdate on the Xbox 360?!!? Because there totally is, check out the info below and you too can teabag one of the Dtoid staff or random community member! (Teabagging is still a thing right? I know it's like, an integral part of the Halo universe so I just figured that mentioning it was par for the 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!
