Xbox Friday Night Fights: The Legend of Nostalgia: A Chain to the Past

Welcome back to another fun night of Fights on Friday Night!  We have a newcomer tonight, John Apocalypse, hosting Lara Croft and the GoL.  It a pretty fun game.  I got it when it released but now it's free guys! (Get it here:  Xbox Marketplace)  So why not pick it up and play it was new Dtoider?

On another note, I figured I would just write a little something about nostalgia since my birthday is on February 27 and I'll be 31 and I feel old now. Go ahead and write that down on your calendars. I'll expect a gift later. Anyway, Dtoider Timnoldzim wrote a cool little blog (Read it here) about gaming commercials and a lot of them were from my days as a kid. Of course I got all nostalgic and looked at a lot on YouTube after that. A few days later my wife got me an early birthday gift of the Legend of Zelda cartoon series on DVD. At school, on Fridays, my friends and I would be antsy all day about getting home to see the show. It was better than the Mario cartoon. Of course, looking back on it, they were both horrible shows but I love watching them still. It's just fun.

So with that blog and the DVD I got all nostalgic and thought about other gaming stuff from my childhood days and one thing really got me thinking: breakfast cereals. Man those things were good. The licensing really brought out the taste. I'm sure Bill “Chilly” Platt still has boxes of those things laying around. I may do a whole fun blog post about that on my account later.

So with that being said, enjoy your gaming night! And still, we still haven't had a Xbox One host yet. Out of the 3 million people that bought one, I figured one person on Destructoid bought one.


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!
