I know. It's not Friday. That's why it's titled “Early Edition.” Stay with me here for a minute and I'll explain why there's FNF blog on a Monday.
One thing that has always made me scratch my head about Destructoid is how the site is split up into different sections- forums, front page, c-blogs- and how those sections rarely intermingle. So after doing the Xbox FNF blog post for a while I learned that FNF is mainly a forum thing. Every once in a while I would do a post and someone would post in the comments about playing a game but more than likely I was already at work and couldn't update the post, leaving their effort to host a game in vain. Posting it on Friday also gave c-bloggers and front pagers a few hours to get plans together to play a game before the main FNF post went live.
So that leads me into why I'm doing it early. I'm opening this up to c-bloggers and front pagers. Don't want to join the forums or venture downstairs to make a post? No problem. Post what you want to play in the comments and I'll update the post to include you guys. I hope this works and have fun gaming!
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!
Here's this week's schedule...
