Friday Night Fights: Come learn how to play EVE Online!

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!

Off to the new job shortly. Dunno if it's something I want long term, but I can't complain about the money. New laptop, phone, and consoles could be weeks away :D

Is it too late to write about the waifu wars? I don't really have one but there is a female character I have in mind that I want to talk about.

Bayo has high execution barrier and largely unsafe moveset but Witch Time is a huge saving grace. I bet people are double bitter with Corrin being in the game and being pretty reliable in terms of skillset. Definitely a safer and stronger choice than Bayo

I was playing Third Strike on PS3 with my PS4 controller and I tried using the dpad for the first and noticed that it doesnt take corner directional inputs. Is this normal for ps4 controllers on ps3?

God damn, Bernie Sanders is just killing it with this speech. Hitting basically every point. He even used the word "oligarchy." Probably the first time I've ever heard that word uttered on CNN. I think a lot of people in power are shitting their pants

In my haste to finally factory reset my tablet, I erased a blog I had worked on. Thankfully, it's fresh in my mind. It's another MGS blog, but it goes the opposite way of my last MGS blog. Pray this guy is not your husbando, for he is shit.

Just ate a disgusting amount of sugary wonders in a Fat Tuesday blowout. Chocolate (birthday) cake, Oreos, brownies, cookie dough, and some creme brule thing. Satiation by way of eat-'til-you-puke is what Shenanigans says!

Is there any real difference between the PS3 and the PS4 versions of Valkyria Chronicles?
