For those of you who missed it, we held our very first (but not our last!) Xbox LIVE Community Playdate last Friday, and it was a resounding success! The Destructoid Battlefield 3 server was full to the absolute brim until well after I passed out from giddiness, with gamers from all over the world turning out to play with your Dtoid celebrities. In short, it kicked major ass!
I'd like to thank Xbox LIVE Community Manager DMZilla for allowing us to host the Playdate, Dtoider ChillyBilly for renting and managing the server, staff and community members Abel Girmay, Brett Zeidler, BunnyRabbit2, Conor Elsea, Daniel James Howell, and SuperMonk4Ever for helping me represent Dtoid, and all of the rest of you who turned out to shoot us in the face. We made a lot of new friends thanks to this, and I can't wait until the next one!
And speaking of "the next one", we have several more get-togethers already in the works! Whether we're challenging other gaming communities or the game developers themselves, you can expect to see Dtoid playdates a lot more frequently from now on, so stay tuned over the coming weeks for more details! Until then, be sure to check out our weekly Friday Night Fights get-togethers to sharpen your skills against other Dtoiders!

Jordan and I have started a new game in our Couch Campaign, and it's one that I have been excited to play since we first began talking about the project. As a huge fan of the Fallout franchise and a lover of top-down, exploration shoot-em-up games, the pairing of the two could have been glorious. And Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel is, provided you think train wrecks can be glorious.more
