Friday Night Fights: Gaming with the King

3:30 PM on 02.21.2014 // ChillyBilly

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday!

I want to take a few minutes of everyone's time today to talk about someone, very special to the Destructoid Community.

Rick "King Foom" Olson has been a staple of the Destructoid community for years. His humor, style and openness to communicate with the community is nothing short of amazing.

Mr. Foom hosts a very popular show over on Destructoids Twitch TV channel entitled Mash Tactics and it's always a blast. I feel as though I've let King Foom slip through the cracks on my Friday Night Fights posts and I intend to never let that happen again.

Starting this week, the King will always have a permanent place on this post.

Hit the link below to check out King Foom's Twitch show, and Rick, my deepest apologies that it has taken me this long to finally get this going.

Good gaming everyone! Have an awesome rest of your Friday!

[Mash Tactics airs Monday through Friday at 4p.m. Pacific on Dtoid.TV. Watch Rick 'King Foom' Olson play a variety of games, each day with its own theme. With a heavy focus on community and viewer interaction, you can be as much a part of the show as anything else.]

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!

The multiple flavors of the soundtrack found in the options of Crypt of the Necrodancer is one of the coolest things I've ever seen a rhythm game do. Been happily replaying the earlier levels just to see a different artist's take on Danny B's original.

I...I think I may have caused the new Steam sale. I didn't buy enough during Christmas time. Now Steam is coming for me. I can feel its breath behind me already. I don't have much time left. Whoever reads this, whatever you do, DON'T LOOK INTO ITS -

Just discovered this today. 2012 album, solo artist writes it all herself. I'm blown away ... this is like my album of the year so far, easily. Listen to this song until the end, it just keeps getting better. Wow.

Nuuuuuuuu---Just realized that Fire Emblem Fates won't be released in my region on February 19th even though that was what my retailer, and the German Amazon, assured me. You even say that..

New album 4/8/16. This is track 1 on the album I guess. It's not bad. Not the best Deftones ever, but it's still better than nothing new at all. I still like it.
