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!

What are you doing still reading this?! Let's play some games!
I'll be helping out with the Xbox FNF blog every now and then, since, you know, ChillyBilly is a little old and forgetful. Monk and I have been talking about putting him in a home but we feel guilty about it.
So it's getting to that time of year where some really good games are starting to come out and make everyone excited to play.
From Splinter Cell and Saints Row to GTA IV and Batman: Arkham Origins, it's shaping up to be a really good fall for gamers.
But that's the problem; I'm not going to be playing any of those games due to the impending launch of the new console cycle. And I'm both really happy and really bummed about it. All my money is tied up in the new console, leaving very little for games releasing now.
It seems like when Xbox 360 and the PS3 launched, the developers ported over PS2 and Xbox games to the new consoles. They may not of have looked very pretty, but they were still the same games. It doesn't seem developers are going for that this time around and makes me a little sad that I probably won't get a chance to play GTA IV or Batman, unless I can pick them up for a few dollars in a year so. Who knows....maybe they'll surprise us with a port of the games or an HD/Super HD/4K version of some of the games in time.
Is anyone else skipping games to put money on a new console? In the meantime, have fun playing Splinter Cell and Castle Crashers!
And I may as well mention the FNF Banner thread over in the forums some of you may enjoy looking at. Mikey will be updating as he works on it.
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, Gamertag, 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

We hope to see you online!
