Beginner's training with Dtoid staff


Tonight, on a very special episode of Dtoid's Friday Night Fights, Destructoid PC contributor Josh Derocher will teach you how to play EVE Online!

Whether you're completely new to the game and looking for tips or an old hand who just wants to play with a bona fide videogames bloggans, Josh has you covered. Here's his note to anyone interested in joining:

It's time to try out EVE! If you are EVE-curious at all, I want to show you what it's like! I want to get a group together and take a look at the basics, run some missions, do some mining, and just get a feel of what the game is like!

What you need to do is sign up for a trial for EVE, install the client, and run it to make sure it's patched. It's big so please make sure you do this ahead of time! Also go ahead and create a character. Use Caldari as your race, this will ensure we all start in the same area.

Thanks, Josh! This will be the first in what will hopefully become a monthly feature here on Dtoid, where we get a staff member to "train" people on his or her gaming specialty. Let us know if you like the idea, and which game(s) you'd like to see featured next!

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!

The joy of bullet hell

Shoot-'em-ups started innocently enough. Spacewar blasted its way onto computers back in the 1960s, and after Space Invaders was released, the rest was history. Galaga and Galaxian would go on to further popularize the genre,...more

One simple trick to help you kill Bloodborne invaders

Getting invaded sucks. Chances are, you're going to die. There's a reason you're being invaded. The other player is confident in their ability to slaughter you. They are probably nigh impervious to damage and carrying some s...more

Yoshi is trying to seduce me

Remember when I wrote that review and said I fucking hate dinosaurs? I take that statement back. I'm in love with Yoshi in Mario Party 10 -- just look at the fuck-me eyes and seductive tail waggle he gives you when in third ...more
