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 don't want to keep saying all these bad things, but they have my family"
Whelp, E3 has come and gone, and like a hurricane fueled by hate and bad news, Microsoft came out swinging, unfortunately they were swinging some sort of mutated idea of what the average gamer wants... at least that's how I saw it.
Now look, anyone who knows me knows that I love my Xbox, it's been my go to device this past gen, I've had some amazing times during these Destructoid Friday Night Fights, made some awesome friends and had more laughs than Mattrick has beers, and that's a lot, because everything he's said lately sounds like something only a drunkard would say.
I want to believe that Microsoft will come around and take what the mass has been saying to heart, they'll see the mistakes or missteps they have taken and fix them, my realist side however knows that everything they've announced, will come to fruition.... and that really sucks.
So I ask you, 360 FNF Faithful, what were your thoughts on Microsoft's E3? Are you worried yet? Were you not bothered by what was said? Did Microsoft show enough gaming goodness to make you forget about the Online requirements, used policies etc?
I'm dying to know what everyone thought.
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
