Friday Night Fights: Going for the gold

Game with the Dtoid community

 I was originally going to go with a header image that showed how amazing the living conditions in Sochi are for the athletes and reporters, but then thought to myself, "Nah, it's bad enough they have to live like that for the next couple weeks, while trying to do their best for their countries", so I shopped Mr. Destructoids' head onto Shaun White.

This was basically my morning in a nutshell. I also drank some coffee and listened to some really, really loud electronic music while writing this.

Andy was right, this is the easiest job ever.

And don't forget, everyone should take a few minutes out of their day and go watch Rich "King Foom" Olson play some awesome games over on our Dtoid Twitch channel. This is an every week thing and if you haven't tuned in yet, you're missing one hell of a show!

[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!
