About
Welcome to Dtoid's Friday Night Fights for Xbox 360!

FNF is a weekly, community-run event where Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! Planning starts in the forums, followed by posts here in the cblogs and on the front page on Fridays. It's easy to get involved, so why not start today?!

<-- You can read the blog for more info, but here are the basics:

How to FNF

To Play
• Leave a comment in the blog or forum post with your Gamertag and which games from the schedule you want to play. More people will show up if they know other people are playing, so speak up!

• Send an Xbox LIVE friend request to the person hosting the game and let them know you're from Dtoid and you're ready to FNF!

To Host
• Leave a comment in this blog or the week's forum post listing game you want to play, the time you want to play it, and your Xbox LIVE Gamertag.

• 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!

Still confused? Click here for a full guide to everything FNF!

Well, well, well. Look who is back AGAIN. Look at this guy that forgot to put up the request forum this week. Psshh, this guy. Who does he think he is? Some kind of guy or something? Does he really even play games? Is he one of those guys that uses his game system to do nothing for streaming? That classic ol' Monk.

So, yeah... sorry I forgot to put up the request forum on my first week back. So, just leave your hostings below and I will update the blog accordingly. I've been gone long enough to grow a beard. Anyways, I am glad to be back!

Short post for me today. Happy Fourth of July to  the US readers!  

I'm about to leave to go to Orlando to visit my sister-in-law for a Fourth of July cookout.  It should be interesting.  She's vegan.  My wife can't eat gluten.  And my other sister-in-law is from Las Vegas so she's always on some weird West Coast fad diet where she doesn't eat anything that contains a certain letter.  It should be an interesting cookout.  I may have to grab a pizza before I get there or it'll be death by health food for me.

The other week when I did the blog post I noted that the Xbox side of the FNF Division didn't have any games.  Well, I was wrong.  Usedtabe noted the in the comments of that post that he plays Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 every Friday night.  So from here on out, or until I'm told otherwise by him, he'll be the mainstay for the Xbox Friday Night Fight so we'll always have something going. In the mean time, this is being posted early so if any of you C-Bloggers want to host something, let me know in the comments and I'll add it in. Thanks, Tubby!

Get it?  Short Round?  As in the character and gaming terms?  Like, "I'm just playing a short round?"  I'm so good at puns and being clever.

No, I know.  It's terrible.

So that's the end of E3.  It was a pretty good year for all camps, be it Nintendo, Sony or Microsoft.  A lot of great games were shown and a lot of great news for the future came out.  I honestly can't say either party "won" or "lost" E3; they were all great.

The one thing I can honestly say I'm disappointed in this year was the lack gaffes during press conferences.  Every year E3 has given us, the internet, something to just rail on, be it the Xbox One, Sony's attitude, Mr. Caffeine or a laughable Wii Music intro.  Everyone was pretty safe this year.  That means no funny GIFs, no funny video recaps, no songs with the press conference cut into it. I'm ashamed that this happened.

Well we all know what next week is: E3.  A week where the division of gamers is probably the greatest and internet wars of who one, who lost and "lol Nintendo" can rage on for weeks.

As we almost all saw, Microsoft really messed up last year with the Xbox One.  However, over the past year and since launch they have done a great job of reversing a lot of terrible decisions and, honestly, had I not already bought a PS4 I would be tempted to jump in for an Xbox One.

Either way, all gamers should embrace the competition of the Big Three.  A lot of ideas go between them and sometimes an idea is improved on by someone else.  Plus a lot of the alleged "leaks" I'm really excited to see.  Check out the Destructoid community Xbox predictions here.

In other news, I changed my PC wallpaper to a Super Mario World wallpaper and my son saw it and was amazed.  I showed him a video of the game and realized that the game is over 20 years old.  I can still remember playing it the first day I got it with my SNES.  Man time flies.  Anyway, he said it looked old and went back to playing Bag Piggies.  

Guess what, kid?  Santa ain't real!  That'll show you to degrade my nostalgia!
