Friday Night Fights: Foightin' around the world

3:45 PM on 08.10.2012 // mrandydixon
  @mrandydixon

I'm not much of a fighting game guy -- the only move I ever memorized was BACK, BACK, PUNCH... "GET OVER HERE!" -- but those of you who are are in for quite a treat tonight!

Not only is King Foom giving out DLC codes for the latest batch of Street Fighter X Tekken characters on Mash Tactics, but FIVE of you are signed up to host the new Persona 4 Arena game! (Not surprising, since our own Dale North gave it a 9 in his review.) Add that to the MLG tournament currently broadcasting live, and that's a lot of foightin'!

Back back punchin' not your thing? Fret not! Fans of speed shooting can join Arttemis for a round or two of Tribes Ascend on the new Destructoid server! Prefer something a bit more "realistic"? Why not apply to one of our Battlefield 3 platoons and join ChillyBilly or CornflakeJustice for a match? Like snowboarding? KingSigy is hosting SSX! Prefer go karts and turtle shells? Join smurfee mcgee for some Mario Kart 7!

Whatever your flavor of choice you're bound to find people to play with tonight, so hit the jump to see what's going on!

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!

Still confused? Check out our FNF FAQ! Big thanks to Dtoider ChillyBilly for all these awesome headers!

Today I learned that Bad Rats 2 is a thing that is happening. I don't know how to feel about this.

The temp agency that employs me had me work as a sign spinner today. As in, I held a six foot cardboard arrow-shaped sign and spun it and danced for six hours. It got interesting when a homeless couple confronted me about hogging their spot.

Witches of Crookback Bog from Witcher 3 is the best quest in the whole game and of any game I've played in recent memory.

I was just accosted by the most gorgeous cosmetics saleswoman with an adorable Hatian-Creole accent. It's not often my attention gets that immersed in a total bullshit sales pitch. Well, that and I didn't want her to let go of my arm.

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.

I've been mad at myself all morning for missing the apostrophe in "I'll" on my Quickpost last night, but it turns out that apostrophes just don't show up on the feed! Isn't that the bee's knees?

Playing through Skies of Arcadia Legends right now. Bringing this to Steam or current gen in HD seems like a no-brainer. Make it so, Sega!
