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!
Unless you have been living under a rock for the past two years, you have known that Grand Theft Auto V is easily one of (if not THE) most anticipated game this year. Rockstar is always great about barely giving out just the right bit of info yet not revealing too much as well. That's why whenever a new trailer releases for their games, it is a pretty big deal. Hell, Rockstar demoed the game off to everyone up until a week ago.
Even though the past two year wait didn't really seem like a big deal, this past week of anticipation really slowed down to an annoying rate. However, that wait will pay off as we pop the game in and explore the huge and vast world of Los Santos again. Sadly though, we still have to wait two weeks after the release of GTA V for the chance to play Grand Theft Auto Online. Even though there is a rather public and large Destructoid club for Rockstar's Social Club, I really don't know the majority of the people that are a part of it. So, I have taken it upon myself to create a smaller group of Destructoid FNF! So make sure to join early to make sure you get in and reap the benefits of being in a crew once GTA Online launches!
What are you going to do first when you pop in Grand Theft Auto V? Well, other than downloading the mandatory 8GB install.
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
Gamertag: Xbox Live Gamertag
Time: Time (Eastern please!)
We hope to see you online!
