Good Friday, y'all. This week saw some pretty interesting gaming news; specifically, we all got to see what Sony is doing with the PS4.
It's pretty good stuff thus far. Good-looking games, neat social features, a ton of delicious RAM, etc. Lots of unanswered questions, for sure, but a good first showing, I think. *Obligatory Vita/PS4-Wii U comparison*
For those of you with a Wii U, there was a new demo for one of the bigger games coming in the immediate future: Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.
I have to say, it's pretty much impossible to encapsulate all of what MH is about within a demo, but it's okay. It lets you use 8 different weapons between 2 shortened quests. It's a good way to get a feel of the combat, and shows you that is isn't just a hack n' slash game. There's no multiplayer in the demo, unfortunately, but it will
be in the FNF rotation when it comes out.
So I say, to all potential monster hunters, use this demo to practice and learn as much as you can before the game comes out. If you need to, look up some videos & strategies. Be patient, and please, keep an open mind. It's not your average game. It's different, and I'm grateful for it.
*Before the usual stuff, I'd like to announce that Dtoider Ckarasu is holding a contest. He's hosting Sonic & All-stars Racing Transformed. and if he gets enough people to join, he'll give away a mystery Wii game. (All Wii games are playable on Wii U, of course) He assures me it's not a lame game. So if you have S&ASRT, be sure to join in for a bit.*
New to Friday Night Fights? It's easy to get involved!
Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It's a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!
The planning for FNF starts in the forums
, where community members volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Nintendo ID, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up here in the Cblogs followed by a recap post on the front page on the front page for last-minute planning.
To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! (Don't forget to say you're from Dtoid!) If you'd rather host something yourself, just post your details below in the following format:
Time (Eastern please!)
We hope to see you online!
The evening's games and a contest:
Game: Sonic & All Star Racing Transformed
8:00 P.M. Eastern/5:00 P.M. Pacific
Ckarasu (add me through miiverse, it's much easier)
If we get enough people in this game, Ckarasu will give away a mystery Wii game to the overall winner! (Not a crappy game)
Any other hosts?
