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.



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

FIRST OFF, READ THIS

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)
Password: (If any)
Note: Any other applicable info about the game.


See you online!
