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!

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!

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!

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.

 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...

As some of you may or may not know, Bill "Chillybilly" Platt retired as the Community Playdate Manager.  He did a great job while he did it and I had a blast working with him.  He recrutied me into the FNF family so he was there to see my horrible first postings.  In fact, I had to call him the first time because the formatting and HTML was so messed up I didn't know how to fix it.  Thanks for all your work, Bill!

So who took his place?  Our very own Mike Martin, or better known as PhilKenSebben.  I've associated with Mike in the forums for a few years now and he is a great guy.  Interesting, in a good way, to say the least.  I look forward to working with him and seeing what happens with the FNF part of Destructoid.

Want to get to know your new Playdate Manager?  He'll be hosting some games tonight on the Xbox One.  He also created a Destructoid clan for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare so be sure to join that and play with other Dtoid members!  You can join in-game (I think) or though the Call of Duty companion app.

Good luck to both Bill and Mike!

Busy weekend, huh?  Between MAGFest and PAX South, I'm sure there are a ton of people out there doing awesome things.  I wish I could head over to PAX South.  I'm originally from Texas and most of my family lives in New Braunfels, which is an hour outside of San Antonio.  That's my favorite part of Texas and it has so much to offer. If you're there, let me know and I'll recommend some good places to eat and places to go...except Schliterbahn.  I think it's a tad too cold for that.  Maybe one year I could weasel my way into a trip for PAX finally in the disguise of seeing family.

Anyway, have a good weekend with whatever you're doing and if you didn't make it to the forums to host anything, let me know in the comments and I'll add it!
