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!
So, my brother and I picked up Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare when it released a little over a week ago. We were enjoying the game quite a bit and decided that we wanted to play with each other. However, one of the most glaring flaw for a multiplayer game to have made it's appearance. That would be a lack of a party system. It baffles me how quite a few multiplayer focused games have omitted this feature. Without it, you have to struggle to find a room before fighting the switch team system just to be on the same side as your friend. It doesn't really make the game any more fun when you are having to jump in and out of rooms just to play with your buddy. God, I can only imagine trying to find a room with a few people.
However, that doesn't mean that Garden Warfare isn't a fun game! One of our hosted games is actually that very same game. So, give Strider a shout if you are interested! Now, on with the hosts!
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!
