PC Friday Night Fights: Server Busy

Sim City came out this week, and boy what a fiasco that's been. EA and Maxis were not prepared for the popularity of the game, and it's been the controversy of the year the week. It's kind of sad, to be honest. It's quite an unfortunate, because the game looks pretty awesome, and I've heard good things about it from the lucky few who have actually had the chance to play it. I don't think the game should be judged on this mishap, but I don't think people should turn the other cheek either. When you release a product, it should be playable. Yeah, there may be some hiccups here and there when it comes to online functionality, but having the game be nearly unplayable for three days is pretty ridiculous. Yet another case as to why single player functionality shouldn't be tied to online servers. Hopefully EA will make it up to the players affected, but unfortunately for them, it may be too late.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go reticulate my splines. Yes, that's a euphamism for play with my dick.

New to Friday Night Fights? It's easy to get involved!


Every Friday the Dtoid community gets together to play games online! Friday Night Fights is run completely by the Destructoid community, so feel free to join in someone's game, or host a game yourself!

The planning for FNF starts here in the forums, where community members volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Steam ID, etc.). Then, every Friday, remininder posts go up in the cblogs followed by a recap post in the front page for last-minute planning.

If you'd like to join a game, just contact the host of the game! If you'd like to host a game, post your details in the following format:

Game Name
Host: Dtoid username
Steam ID: Steam contact info (If you'd prefer to use something other than Steam for people to contact you, please specify here.)
Time: Time (Eastern Please!)Server: (If any)
