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.
• 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.
I'm not really supposed to swear in the titles anymore. It's frowned upon.
Okay, so first thing's first, I'm drinking right now because beer is delicious and fuck you that's why. I drink therefore I'm drunk. Anyway, that's out of the way onto the actual post. [EDIT: I'm less drunk now and just grumpy. I would reeeeeaaaally love it if the Blog Editor had not completely borked the hell out of the blog I typed up...]
Earlier this week Sony threw down with a pretty fantastic sale, the "Golden Week Sale" I'm not actually sure what it celebrates but apparently it's four national holidays so... Awesome, hurrah, bananas. But glancing through that list, seriously there are some worthwhile deals there, and if you're a PS+ member (and if you aren't I'd really genuinely like to know why you're not) they're borderline Steam level sales and are well worth a once over.
To Highlight a few:
Armored Core: Verdict Day -- $5 (Is this worth picking up at this price?)
Metal Gear Solid HD Collection -- $12 on PS3, $9 on Vita
Muramasa Rebirth --$7.50 (Though Sadly the DLC is not on sale)
Persona 4 Golden -- $15
Tales of Symphonia Chronicles -- $10.00
Zone of the Enders HD Collection -- $10.50 (Also probably where my last chunk of PSN Credit is going pending other folks' thoughts and verification of having only $10 or having $15)
You can glance through the rest of the deals here:
Regardless these deals are pretty phenomenal and it's exciting to see the folks over at Sony really pushing some great stuff at really amazing deals. Thoughts on other awesome sales? Comments on the games available here? Recommendations? Share them in the comments!
Welcome to the Playstation side of Friday Night Fights! Every Friday, members of the 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 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. Adding a game there ensures it's on the blog from the moment it goes up.
BlazBlue: Chron Phantasma with Trev Time 8pm
Amane is pretty much the manliest of all men. Drill baby, drill.
Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition with Nanashi Time 9pm
WARHAMMER 40K: SPACE MARINE with Clockwork-Zombie Time 10pm
MILK FOR THE KHORNEFLAKES
Warframe with Trev Time 11pm
Fucking hell... I started playing again and in the course of two days grinded for about a million credits, farmed Nekros, Hydroid, finally got the Vauban Chassis I needed, and cleared out my Foundry of the 15 items that were in it. I hate you people.
