Friday Night Fights: Built for the future

3:45 PM on 11.22.2013 // ChillyBilly

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday everyone!

Welcome to another edition of Destructoid's Friday Night Fights!

We finally made it, we are now fully into the next gen of gaming! Can you feel the excitement? I know I sure can!

Last night, Microsoft launched the Xbox One, ushering in a new era of ad filled dashboards everywhere!


Now that the big three have fully entered the new generation of gaming, what are you most excited for? Is it the prospect of new and exciting franchises? Is it the social aspect that this new generation is bringing with it? Is it the sheer, raw horsepower that these machines have under their hoods? (In before "LOL not WiiU though LOL").

We're in for a long road ahead of us, whether we like it or not, and I for one am pretty excited to see what's to come. I have a feeling a lot of us will be blown away at E3 this year when we start seeing just what Sony and Microsoft's machines are really capable of doing.

But I digress, we have games to play with each other, so let's get down to it and play some games!

Let's get to the games!

Friday Night Fights

New to FNF? Read this! 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 sign up to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up in the community blogs thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers, and I recap it all here on the front page to give it a bit more exposure.

To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! If you'd rather host something yourself, sound off in the comments section below!

Just 1200 words left to go on my essays. Do I deserve a day off to play Just Cause 3 once I'm done? Yes.

Elite: Dangerous has some glaring issues, and can occasionally feel kinda bare bones, but I'll be damned if it isn't one of my favorite games in recent memory. Ships are fun to fly, trading is rewarding, and the sound design is absolutely brilliant.
Archelon avatarArchelon
Well, Destructoid. I did it. I jumped ahead.

Flawed but fun favorite game sorter. Post top 30 in the comments. [url][\url]

I am tired of random players. I need to enlist some help with Triforce Heroes challenges. Would anyone like to pair up with me?

Last night I had to clean projectile liqiud dogshit off of the sides of my puppies kennel. Pity me. Read my blog.

Taking a break from Fallout 4 to try out Twitch Creative. Catch me painting Chun-Li while listening to an eclectic mix of Alex G, DJ Shadow, and Modest Mouse. [img][/img]

So far from first impressions of my Freedom Planet indie box its 100% more worth it than lootcrate. Whereas lootcrate you get a bunch of stuff you may or may not like, indie box gives you indie games, and stuff related to that game, such as the soundtrack

When one game is rated 7.4 and another 7.6, Are you telling me one game is 0.2 worse than the other. WHAT!?!
KingSigy avatarKingSigy
I think Microsoft takes the cake for worst console updates. The XBone UI is worse and the fucking controller had an update. What the hell has gaming become?
Dr Mel avatarDr Mel
Well, that's a wrap for the Bloodborne DLC. I liked it. More thoughts and maybe spoilers in the comment section.

a rainy afternoon, and too sleepy for games. Time to go to the animal shelter and try not to fall asleep, surrounded by kittens.

Community Question: Following from yesterday's Community Question, how would you feel if reviewers began assigning two scores to a game? One specifically for the technical aspects/performance of the game, and the other for their own personal enjoyment?

I went back to Persona 4 Golden this weekend, asked Chie to be my girlfriend but then accidentally maxed out my social link with Yumi, changed my relationship status to "It's Complicated" on Personabook. [img][/img]

Why am I hyped? Just cause :D

You know what Fallout 4 mod I want to see? One to fix the interior lightning. It's like the silliest thing to get fixated over, but I can't seem to ignore how white and bright some of those inside lights are.

Just wrote my first C-blog. It's me talking about the games I have played this month; I'm quite excited

I wish the Squid Girl outfit was still a dress for boys. I want to live through my Inkling boy and be a cute girly-man, dammit. [img][/img]
