About
Welcome to the home of PlayStation Friday Night Fights.

Friday Night Fights is a weekly event where we, community members, cooperate with or murder each other online. There is a forum thread for planning and then a blog post here with the final schedule. Keep an eye out for both them if you want to play some games.

If you are new to the whole thing, check this out: FNF FAQ: Everything you need to know (but never asked) about Friday Night Fights

The Guide

To Play

• Keep yourself up to date on the schedule. The list in the forums can change several times throughout the week.

• Leave a message with your PSN name and which games from the schedule you want to play. More people will play if other people are playing, so speak up.

• Send a PSN friend request to the person hosting the game which includes a message with your Dtoid name. If you leave out who you are on the site, they might think you're just a random friend request and ignore you.

To Host

• If you want your game listed on the schedule, we need the game, the time, and your PSN ID. We need the specific game, not an abbreviation that applies to more than one; a start time, even if you're playing "all night"; and we need your PSN ID even if you think we know it already.

• 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.

• Make sure you have at least an hour to play. That's only two or three matches of the average shooter and those go by pretty quick.

• Check the comments, on both the forum post and the cblog when it goes up on Friday, to see if someone has said they'll play. You might have missed their PSN message or your friend list might be full.

Woo!

As with most holiday weekends, everything is a little harder to plan. Some people are gone, others don't know when they'll be getting back, lots of people have things to do and like to do them on their three-day weekend. But there are still games to play, and what better time to hang around with some friends and have drinks and fun than today? There being a few wires in between doesn't really matter, does it?

Have a happy Fourth, everyone.

Down below, you'll find a list of games that we'll play tonight along with the times they'll start, the people that you should hit up for invites, and any other information that you may need.

If you want to play, leave a comment with the games from the schedule you want to play and your PSN name. You should also send a PSN friend request to the host and mention your username here in the message so they know you're one of the cool people and not just some random friend request.

If your favorite game isn't on the schedule, host it yourself! You just need to give us the game, start time, and your PSN name so people know what, when and who. It's also wise to list DLC requirements, game or server names, and anything else people might need to join just so you don't need to message it to everyone individually. Last minute additions in the comments here are fine, but games can also be added earlier in the week by visiting the forums and finding the thread with the coming Friday's date.

Battlefield 4 with Defenestrator
Time 11:00pm
PSN ThDefenestrator
I'll probably be on early if I'm bored but I'll start late for the people who have actual responsibilities and shit.



Grand Theft Auto Online with Clockwork
Time 11:00pm (Tentatively)
PSN Clockwork-zombie
The time should really be "after fireworks" but this is a good estimate.



Warframe with Trev
Time Maybe
PSN ElZilcho
I don't normally do vague times, but FNF doesn't usually start at 11. There's a 24 hour catalyst alert that we might want to pick up, for those that haven't by then. I don't know if we'll even get to Warframe or just mess around in GTA. If you're new and wanted to get some WF time with us, come back next week and we'll pick you up then.

PS+ wins again!

It might be getting repetitive at this point, but PS+ is really pretty amazing. I was skeptical of them making it a requirement. I don't believe that basic functions of games, which online play has become, should be locked behind additional costs. However, PS+ has kept up the string of free games. The price of what I'll download next month covers the cost of the year's subscription, if I were to buy them that is. That doesn't even count the games I got last month or the month before, or will be getting in the future. How great is that?

I still don't like paying for online play because so many games rely on it, but I consider that to be something that was added into the PS+ stuff and not the primary reason to get it. It's actually a lot like Netflix for games; it gives you the opportunity to play games "for free" and not have to worry about if you're going to like it or if it will be a good value for the cost. You just get games that there's no reason not to try. I wasn't all about the new Strider game, but now I'll have it. What the hell, I'll play some Strider.

Just look at this!









Seriously, only murder


I got woken up this morning at around 6:30am because one of my cats decided to get MURDER eyes on another cat outside and knocked some stuff into my rabbits pen, who was sound asleep and is about 15 years old. I swear I thought he was going to die of a heart attack. Luckily he was still hopping around and asking for treats when I went out to check on him before work.

In gaming news, I started playing Guild Wars 2 again, and it was actually pretty fun. Minus the 300 items I got from returning to the game after a year and a half hiatus. Sorting through all of that took the better part of 2 hours. I also played both the Destiny Alpha and the Battlefield: Hardline Beta, and I cannot judge either fairly right now. I do think Destiny is way more polished, however. I think Bungie just has a higher standard of quality.

Now, play some damn games!

They had me at Miyazaki

I could write all about E3, but we can have a big chat about it tonight. You know, like people. Instead, I'm going to add some of the things I'm most excited about where the videos go and call it a day. I promise it won't be the Bloodborne trailer embedded thirty times.

We have the Destiny beta going tonight, and maybe if you harrass them incessantly you could get some BF: Hardline going too. I think everybody with BF4 had the opportunity to download it, but I don't so I haven't seen the process myself.

The "first look" is really pretty short. Clock and I played through it in one sitting. I advise everyone to start a new character tonight and try one they haven't played before.

What they want.

There seem to be several more free to play games on their way to PS4, but I'll get to that in a minute. I have a story about a terrifying crisis.

Late Wednesday night, technically the wee hours of Thursday morning if you want to be like that, I was having trouble getting to sleep. That's a thing that happens. I was maybe just drifting off when I heard a burst of high pitched beeps. Strange sounds and half consciousness are like rocket fuel. Wide awake, I listen and hear them again. I know that sound. It's the sound it makes when you try to eject a disc from a playstation when there isn't one there. Maybe there are other things that use the same beep, but I only know of two devices in my possession that make it and they're both black videogame machines. I go check it out to find my PS4 is in a state of FOREVEREJECT, repeating the process over and over. Fortunately, the cause is simple and the fix is easy. There's a manual eject screw on the PS4 and it apparently can become loose. You can pop off that shiny plastic segment and tighten it a little and the problem goes away. The purpose of the screw, if the name didn't give it away, is to allow you to spit the disc out of your PS4 even if it's a brick. Counterclockwise ejects the disc. If you find your PS4 constantly ejectulating when you don't want it to, all you need to do is go the other way. Tighten the screw down and teach it a lesson. That went to a weird place…

Anyway, free to play games! Whether you like the free to play model or not is your business. We have a hobby that's expensive no matter which way we go with it. What really matters is the quality of the game being offered. If they want your support in the form of paying for dress up bits, or if they demand money for a product you haven't had the opportunity to test and for which they bent over reviewers with the threat of no more free games should they put up a review before the game is on shelves. Loadout looks… something. I don't know that it's what I'm into. It has a sense of humor about it, but it doesn't fit me. The gameplay might be able to make up for that, and I love building weird guns. War Thunder, on the othunder hand, looks like it could be pretty intense. It will have to strike the right balance between sim and fun though. The stakes being high and things being difficult is what makes a game engaging. I don't know how I feel about these hand-me-down PC games, but if they're good and I can play them without being at a PC, I guess that's pretty good. I sit at a PC all day. I don't want to do it at home, for entertainment.

It is, however, important to note that the quality of a game can be brought down by an impolite F2P model. I haven't heard War Thunder's is all that great.

Time is a little up in the air, but Scield will make it as soon as he can. I don't think he'd mind if you did a round without him at 11 if you saved him a seat in the chopper. If you want a warm up, Kim will also be on BF4 starting at 10:00pm (PSN: KimikoLoco).

Only 6 months late, right?


Hey guys! So apparently a new hyped game came out this week, and it was surrounded by hilarious bugs, amazing(ly bad) PR stunts, and vendors breaking street date. Me? I don't think I'll be getting it until the first few round of patches, or until there is an Amazon sale or something.

For the people that have it: How is it? I'm curious to see what my fellow FNFers think of it if they have it.

In other game news, I got CoD: Ghosts recently, and had a wonderful experience with a (potentially) black youth. I was playing the Sqauds mode against one other person (him), who I won against. Well, they decided to invite me to their party. Given that no one else was playing the game that I know, I decided to join and play with one other person, since you usually win with teammates. How wrong I was.

I joined him, and the absolute first thing he did was ask if I was a boy or girl. Off to a great start already. I let that slide. THEN he asks me for my real name. (PS4 has a real name request feature, if you didn't know). OK, let that slide after telling him no. "Facebook?"
No.
"Come on, do you think you ugly or sumthin?"
Uh, no. I met you literally 20 minutes ago.
"Well that doesn't mean you can't be friends.  YouTube account?"
I'm not giving you that either.
"Why not? I bet you're pretty.  Age? I'm 18"
Mid fifties. (Eventually tell him I'm 28, still a lie)
"Oh." (He stops with the personal questions here, guess I was too old.)

Went back to actually playing the game, and the dude starts rapping/singing. I tell him to stop so I can actually hear the game, he doesn't. I had been on his friends list for less than 3 hours.

And that's the story of the shortest lived PSN friend I ever had.
