PC Friday Night Fights: Under New Management

It's been a long time, far too long. PhilKenSebben has moved on to become community playdate manager as Bill has stepped down, and this blog needs a kick in the pants to get going again. Plans are in the works to try and make that happen as well. I will say working with Bill on both Streamtoid and TF2sdays has been an absolute blast and I once again wish him well in his future endevors. He was an awesome person to put up with some of the crazy ideas I've had. See you space cowboy.

In other news, I have finally bought into the Star Citizen hype. Every single time I fly in the alpha I have to have the theme for Firefly in my playlist, it just feels right. People might laugh at my flying coffin, but at the end of the day it really doesn't matter what's on the other end of the gun if you're dead.

Pc Friday Night Fights: Streams and things!



Sorry for the late posting, my day has been busy as all hell. A few great things to hear about this week is the return of Streamtoid! I wrote about what that entails a little while back here. Did you miss the latest episode of Between 2Fort? Don't worry, you can catch it embedded above. Hopefully I didn't miss anything else, but if I did, feel free to post it in the comments below.

PC Friday Night Fights: Something about E3


So I'll keep this short and sweet. I'm not really feeling too well, and its been one hell of a long week for me. E3 is a thing that is happening soon, which is nice. Also Between 2Fort with Mr Andy Dixon was pushed back again to this upcoming Tuesday at 9:30 pm PST/ 12:30 am EST. If you want details or to submit a burning question you've always had for him feel free to do so here, the show will go live on my twitch channel and be uploaded to youtube sometime in the next week. Now I'm going to go pass back out and get some more sleep.

PC Friday Night Fights: Better Late than Never


So it's been a while since we've had a proper PC FNF blog, and I apologize for that, I've been pretty busy with a ton of stuff, as I assume the other bloggers have as well. Part of that chaos involves the next episode of Between 2Fort, starring none other than Mr Andy Dixon. If you want details or to submit a burning question you've always had for him feel free to do so here, the show will go live at 9:30PM PST on my twitch channel and be uploaded to youtube sometime in the next week. In other news one of my favorite horror series got another sequel, V/H/S. While some folks don't like the anthology approach with a ton of different directors each having a shot at a segment, I kind of like it. The movies are a nice change of pace from the run of the mill horror flicks you tend to get these days. I'll try to be more on point about getting this up regularly, and I apologize its been so long.

PC Friday Night Fights: Between 2Fort



So this Tuesday I'll be interviewing Spencer Hayes on the TF2 server, and you are more than welcome to join and shoot us in the face while we try to do so. Also if you have any burning questions you want me to ask Spencer, feel free to leave them in a comment here. The whole thing will be streamed live on twitch and hopefully get uploaded to youtube at some point. The rules are simple, we have to defend the bridge from everyone else in the server. I look forward to seeing everyone there.

PC Friday Night Fights: The Final Frontier



Space, its big and... spacey. The reboot of Cosmos is something worth watching, even if you have missed Carl Sagan's original journey, feel free to ride along with Neil Degrasse Tyson on this new one. Combine this with Space Dandy and there is no shortage of space age antics across the entire spectrum. I suppose I should introduce myself as one of the PC FNF team; I'm shadow2398 I've been around for a while and I'm an admin over at the TF2 server. You can find me under the name Hank Hill on steam. If you ever have any ideas or suggestions for the server, always feel free to let me know.

On the FNF front there is the usual TF2 and some Titanfall as well. So there will be tons of carnage to go around.

PC Friday Night Fights: "Diamond Dogs, our new home."



I've been thinking for a long ten minutes now as to what I should write this about. The only thing I can think of is Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, because of course. I recently transferred servers to be with a few friends, with more friends joining when the PlayStation 4 version comes out next month. I created a new Free Company, based off an idea Philanthr0py gave me, called Diamond Dogs, based off the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V. We're on Ultros, so if you're on that server feel free to hit up my main character, Swishiee Swisherton.

As for FNF news, there's nothing much going on tonight. We have the usual TF2 and that's it. We do have a new member to the PC FNF team, who will be writing his first post next week, Shadow2398, aka Hank Hill from the TF2 server. So expect to see more blogs happening on a regular basis again!

PC Friday Night Fights: ALL ABOARD!



Another year has passed. And with a new year comes a new season of Sentai. Kyoryuger came and went, and it was fantastic. Now it's time for a new team. A team that uses their imagination, and trains, to win fights. They're Ressha Sentai ToQger. And they're bringing the pain train (pun intended) to evil. CHOO CHOO MOTHERFUCKERS.

It's been a while since we've had a blog. Busy at work, busy at home, and a constantly changing schedule makes me forget when Friday is until I get there. Due to this, I'm looking for help from folks wanting to help keep this blog going. I don't plan on stopping, but it's been a few weeks without a blog post, so some help would be nice. If interested, hit me up via Dtoid PM, or on Twitter at @Swishiee and we'll talk.

Friday Night Fights is now departing. Please stand behind the white line.

Hey hey, everyone. It's been a little while. Sorry for no blog post for a while. We've been... busy... I think? Anyway, sup? How are you? I'm good I suppose. We don't really have any games tonight. pk fire is planning on hosting a game if he can get it online alright. And I will be playing Final Fantasy XIV until the end of time... and Awesomenauts. So let's do this!

(I didn't have a blog theme for this week for videos or header and footer images, so uh... Have some of my random FFXIV screenshots?)

PC Friday Night Fights: It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year



It's once again that time of year. Christmas? Forget that. The Steam Holiday Sale. The sale that makes me too broke for last minute presents. Surprisingly, however, the sale has been going for 24 hours and I haven't bought anything... yet. This normally happens every year with me, where I start the sale not really wanting anything, but end up buying tons of stuff.

Oh yeah. I guess it's also Christmas time too. Christmas events have started in two of my favorite games: Final Fantasy XIV, and Team Fortress 2. I've made sure to have the TF2 server updated for the event, so why not stop by for a bit and play?

And remember, next week, when you're with your family for Christmas (or Wednesday for those who don't celebrate), don't forget when you're sitting around the tree to praise Gaben.
