Xbox FNF: Family Medical Leave

 

As some of you may know, my wife is pregnant and the baby is due in about a week.  This will be my second child so I'm going to have my hands full for some time.  So until things settle down a bit, this will be my last Friday Night Fight blog for a few weeks.  The last few weeks I haven't been able to get the post up due to a lot going on (doctors and what not) and I know that is only a glimpse of things to come.  With an older child out for summer and a new baby, I'm not going to have time to sleep, much less play games or do the blog.

I'll be hosting GTA Online (PS4 Version) for a few hour tomorrow around 10 PM EST so come and join me if you want!  I will still be active in the forums and on twitter (shameless plug: @swordandscield ) since I can do those on the fly and still have some connection to you guys.

In the mean time, SuperMonk is coming back and he'll be taking things over for about 4-5 weeks, hopefully. Love you guys!

Xbox FNF:Community

There's been a lot going on in the forums over the past few days.  A lot of internal stuff that has been bubbling for a while.  I love Destructoid and no matter what goes on behind the scenes, on the front page or wherever else, the thing that makes the site for me is you, the community.  Much like the above pictured smelly hippies in a drum circle, we're all different people that each contribute our own thing to every facet of the site in one way or another.  I came to the site for the community and have met awesome people through it and a ton of you have had an impact on me (just look at this blog entry I wrote).  I do the FNF fight page because I believe in it and I believe in the site.  It's what introduced me to a lot of people and I hope that it can do the same for someone else who just might be coming to the site.  

 

Seriously.  You guys are the best.  Don't ever change.

Xbox FNF: Friday Night Steak

 

 

Over the past few weeks, Chillybilly and I have been getting in a picture battle of us grilling food.  He does hot dogs, I do chicken.  He does pork, I do strip steak.   Bottom line is, everything on the grill tastes better.  I watch a lot of home shows on HGTV with my wife and it really bothers me when people refer to grills as BBQ's.  Grilling and bar-b-que's are two completely different things. One is hardware to cook food (grill) and the other is a style of cooking (barbeque).  Bill doesn't do this but those of you reading now know the error of your ways.

 

In non-grilling gaming news, I bought the PS4 version of GTA V. I played it on the 360 and loved it but GTA Online never clicked with me.  Cool concept but all the trolls kept me from enjoying it.  But I finally got a chance to play the Hesit mode the other day and it was awesome.  If any of y'all have it on the PS4 I'd love to get a crew together.

Xbox FNF: Playing the Jerk

 

 I was thinking the other day about some of my favorite villains in gaming. There are many that come to mind such as Albert Wesker, Revolver Ocelot, Handsome Jack and more. Then, I tried to think of playable ones. There... really isn't too much there. The ones that are there are usually faceless people that just simply fit the role as the "bad guy" in a multiplayer game on one side. I mean, I was trying to think of a game where you were the central bad guy. Not some bad guy fighting off worse guys or a bad guy turned good. No, a bad guy out to get the hero of the story. There are RPGs that make you think that you are being a villain like Fable and Dragon Age but really, you are just being more of a dick than a ultimate baddie. Can you guys think of a role like that? I really can't seem to think of one unless it's some obscure game.

Xbox FNF: Spring Break

 

It's the season for Spring Break and this is the first year since my college and high school days that I'm actually taking off.  What am I doing? Panama City?  Daytona? Being featured in Gamers Gone Wild?  No. None of those but something way more wild: backyard camping, watching TV shows I've been meaning to watch, maybe finally playing games and a few kid friendly activities.   You see, I hate Spring Break.  Way too many (tourists/drunk college kids) people on the beaches, which are still freezing to begin with, loads of traffic and theme parks are jam packed and I-4 is backed up all the way to Gulf (not really).  It's just better to stay away from all that. I'm an exciting person who like to live on the edge, as you can tell.

Char Aznable (XBL: ShinigamiBV) was looking for some Horde mode players in Gears of War 3 so check him out to see if he's online and still needs people.  Other than that, it's a quiet week.  Have a good weekend and fun Spring Break, if you're young enough to have those or old enough to have vacation time to use.

Xbox FNF: Raging Kombat

Rage Quits, we have all been there on both sides. Honestly, playing a long game where you and your teamates are getting decimated is pretty demorilizing. Then on the flip side, pounding your enemies in the ground and finishing a match in record time is followed by a good huehuehueh. In a fighting game though, it is one on one. When one person quits, the match is over. So, how do you balance the rage quitters? Do you put them in a pool with other rage quitters? Make them loose XP, Rank or in game currency? Well, Mortal Kombat X is trying a new approach. Glorify the winner with a Quitality. While it may not stop rage quitters, it is a new approach that is pretty funny. If you had a say on what penalties would be put against rage quitters, what would you do? Personally, I would have the rage quitter have a slower building EX bar so they have to work even harder for their next win.

Xbox FNF: Stabby McFriday

So Friday the 13th, huh?  Yeah.  That's a thing.  And yes, I'm aware the day has nothing to do with the movie but it's still fun to always bring it up.  Between Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street, I've always been more partial to Nightmare on Elm Street.  To me there is something more freaky about someone invading and killing in dreams than just mindless stalking and stabbing.

But anyway, this is a short post for today.  Have fun gaming!

Xbox FNF: Reunion Tour

Hey guys, I'm not sure if you have realized that a great game series is coming back to life. What? Which one? Are you... you better not be pulling my leg. Rock Band is back. ROCK BAND IS BACK. WOOOOOOOOOO! You have no idea how big my grin was this afternoon when I woke up and checked my feed. People knew how excited I would be and let me know that this year is destined to rock. That's not all though folks! They are carrying over over two thousand songs from the current DLC listing. There is no exact word on what is going to make the cut but I believe it's safe to say that if you bought any Rock Band DLC, a large chunk of them will make the transition. Between Rock Band 4, Metal Gear Solid V, Mortal Kombat X and Batman: Arkham Knight, this year is shaping up to be an amazing one.

Xbox FNF: 32 Candles

I'm not usually one to brag or call out attention about my birthday, however, seeing as my birthday falls on my week and day for the Xbox post y'all are just going to have to deal with it!  So as the title implies, I'm 32 today and as y'all can see, I got everything I wanted for my birthday from Destructoid: Mr. Andy Dixon in a dress, taking the place of Molly Ringwald.  My wish already came true. *outro 80's music*

In other birthday news, Destructoid's nine year birthday is coming up!  Head over to this thread in the forums to see what we have to do get the awesome 9 year badge.  So far, there have been a lot of good posts and shout-outs to the community.

In Xbox FNF news, I'm glad to see that Monk is back and getting back into the swing of things.  We also have a lot of games being hosted tonight and *may* have Gears of War 3 Horde mode being hosted tonight but I haven't heard if it is official yet.  And, like always, if you didn't make it down to the forums to post what you want to host, let me know in the comments.

Stay safe and have fun tonight!

Xbox FNF: Winter Storm Blues

Just as it seemed like everything was starting to get back to normal winter storm is moving in this evening. The news have been talking about the second wave storm named Pandora. While it sucks that people have had to live without power for an extended amount of time, I love how everything has looked. Everything covered in a thick layer of ice that glistens in the sun. It sucks that the beautiful sceanery comes with such unfortunate events. Please be careful this week, by being bundled up inside and playing some games with some awesome people!

Xbox FNF: Fighting Night Delight

Well, it's that time of year again! That time of year of curling up under a warm blanket in the living room with the one you love. Having the lights off, setting the right tone of music to fit the mood and... let the smack talk fly! That's right, it's the Fight before Valentines Day! Join some of the community's best and have a blast 

Also, this is my first FNF blog in over SIX MONTHS! Scield has done an amazing job these past months by himself but it it quite a bit to make sure you put out a post every week. So, as of now and for the forseeable future, I shall be contributing again. In before all the "Goddammit Monk" comments.

Xbox FNF: Call of Duty: Earth Defense Force

 

 This'll be a short post for me today.  Why?  I have to paint a baby's room.  Y'all don't understand the hate and contempt I have for painting; but I only have three walls left and they're all the same color.  Then I'm done.

 

Want to host something and didn't make it into the forums?  Let me know in the comments and I'll update the post when I can throughout the day.  Have fun out there tonight!

 

As a side note, as I was looking for the header picture under "messy room painting" in search, results for hierophilia came up.  Oh the rabbit hole of internet wierdness...
