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!
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!
Free this weekend? Why not sign up to host something for Weekend Warriors?! It's like Friday Night Fights all weekend long! Sign up in the comments or Forum thread if you're interested!
