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!
I don't really have a whole lot to say this week. As I'm writing this, on Thursday, I'm at home sick for some reason. My son had strep throat the other day so I'm probably fighting that off or the fact it was 85 degrees a few days ago and yesterday and today its been in the 40's and 50's is wreaking havoc on my immune system.
Either way with me being home with time to kill I was able to try out a little bit of my GIMP/Photo editing abilities (which is none right now). Since Char Aznable is hosting multiple games I figured I would try my hand at some easy stuff, later on I may through the Destructoid Robot head on some stuff. Who knows. I'm just trying to figure out what all the buttons do at the moment so it may take a little longer to do this. To Hell with the manuals and how-to's.
And welcome back PanaMusica to the FNF scene! He's bringing back one of the favorites from back in the day so jump on and play some Battlefield 3! I traded my copy in at GameStop for around $2.
Enjoy the FNF!
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...
Beat'em Up-Stravaganza! (Pick anything you want! Castle Crashers, Streets of Rage 2, TMNT, Phantom Breaker BG or anything else!)
