Welcome to the home of PS3 Friday Night Fights here at Destructoid.
Friday Night Fights is a weekly event here at Destructoid 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.
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.
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.
Just look at that smug face, the face of a man who knows.
In all fairness the xBox 1 (Or Xbone as some are calling it, good lord I hate that nickname) has a couple neat features. Rumor has it that you can assign a "family" of 10 people who don't need to be on the same console or even IP who can play the games without purchasing them but it's weird and there are restrictions of course. Who knows. Regardless, outside of Steam I'd rather buy my physical copy and be done with it. The only digital copies I want are for games I know I'm never going to get rid of (Like Jet Set Radio Future!). That said the Sony has made quite a show with the PS4 and while PS+ is a requirement for online play and I resent that I wasn't about to discontinue my subscription to the service in the first place so I guess it's sort of irrelevant isn't it? I'll certainly miss some games coming out for the XB1, Sunset Overdrive looked conceptually neat at least, it looks to me like that's where all the FUSE assets from Insomniac went. But there are a ton of games coming out that I like more on PS4 anyway. Killzone Shadow Falls anyone? I'll be on that shit day one. Plus Destiny looks great, and Tom Clancy's: The Division? Yes please. A tactical game I can enjoy and even make Trev happy about! If I can convince him I'll take it seriously that is. I totally will for what it's worth AND DID YOU SEE THE CHARACTER CLOSE THE DOOR ON THAT CAR! swoon. On the flip side, I'm finally building a PC so I suppose I have Titanfall covered if I want to play that, and it'll probably look better for only $250 more than the cost of an XB1! Anyway, that's some of my thoughts on E3, what are yours?
Enjoy "The Last of Us" I think I'm going to miss it this week, had a payment come up that needed to take precedence sadly. It happens sometimes! Next week yo.
Welcome to the Playstation side of Destructoid's Friday Night Fights! Every Friday, members of the Destructoid community get together online to play games and all you need to join is a user account. 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, including a message to say who you are here on Destructoid 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. Adding a game there ensures it's on the blog from the moment it goes up.
The Last of Us with KimikoLoco Time: 10pm PSN: KimikoLoco Cornflake probably won't make it this week. If you spoil this game for him I will see to it that you never play with us again.
Soul Sacrifice with Trev Time: 12am
Toro's Friend Network with Clockwork-Zombie Time: ALL THE TIME, FOREVER
This does not have multiplayer and is not even really a game, but you should get on here so I can put you to work.
