This week was a pretty exciting one if you're a Nintendo fan, what with all the games announced during the latest Nintendo Direct. There was old, new, sequels, remakes, crossovers, and fucking CROCHET YOSHI! Personally, I think Monolith Soft got me most excited, because we actually saw what they had. And boy, was it glorious. Xenoblade was absolutely fantastic, and the new game seems like an expansion on the same ideas. I'm all for new ideas expanding the JRPG umbrella.
Oh Wind Waker is getting remade or something. That's kinda cool, I guess. :P If they can fix all the little problems it had, it could actually be even better. How crazy would that be?
Not sold on a Wii U yet? There's always E3. All hail Retro
For those of you who do have one, we should play some games together. Today or even during the weekend if you're out & about tonight.
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!
Game: Trine 2
Time: 11:00 p.m. EST
