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!
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!
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!
