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:
Game: Game Name
Host: Dtoid Username
Nintendo ID: Nintendo ID
Time: Time (Eastern please!)
We hope to see you online!
The evening's games and a contest:
Game: Sonic & All Star Racing Transformed
Time: 8:00 P.M. Eastern/5:00 P.M. Pacific
NNID: 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)
