Friday Night Fights: I'm so excited for Rise of the Triad

Play games with the Dtoid community!

Welcome to another edition of Dtoid's Friday Night Fights!

We're only three weeks away from the rebirth of Rise of the Triad, and I can't begin to express how giddy I'm getting. I only ever played the shareware release of the original ROTT when it came out back in 1994, but I remember being blown away at the time by the freedom of movement (especially compared to its most popular contemporaries, Wolfenstein 3D and DOOM), more lighthearted tone, inventive weapons and power-ups (including a God Mode that actually made you God), and the level of interaction with the environment. From what I can tell, Interceptor's upcoming HD remake looks to scratch all those same itches in the current gen, and I can't wait to get my hands on it.

What about you guys? Plan on picking up the new ROTT? If so, I'll see you on the FNF battlefield!

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!

We were discussing Ben Carson, pyramids, corpses, SoFlo, and Nekro's fetishes in the Discord chat if anyone wants to know what it's like down there.

Nintendo just sent me an email to say "Congrats on your new Wii U!". It wasn't new it got fucking FRIED and now all my stuff's gone after repairs - I was in Chapter 9! Chapter 9! 70+ hours on XCX! And that's just one game! I was- *walks off ranting*

Irony: over 9000!. The same UN with staff distributing child porn, Saudi Arabia heading its Human Rights Council and troops accused of rape wants to school Japan on their treatment of women in videogames. You can't can't make up this stuff.

So I got my game recorder. That's good! But I ordered the wrong one. That's bad. So just gotta send back to Amazon and order it. Could've sworn on the website it said the HD60 Elgato let you record old games too.

It just occured to me that given the 99% probablility of there being an update pack to XCOM 2-ala Enemy Within-waiting for a while may be a better option, so that when I do get the game I get it in its optimal form-and on sale, to bring it below 90 total
