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!

There are Hawaiian Shirts in Sunset Overdrive!

As we recently learned, Sunset Overdrive lets players protect their genitals with the head of a green kangaroo, which is a very silly idea. But is that silly enough, in this post-Saints Row world? The answer is "who cares?" because there are also Hawaiian Shirts and Hawaiian Shirts are my jam.more

The best stuff on Destructoid this week [7/26]

Let's get away for the weekend, just you and me. I know this little place on the coast. Nice restaurant, view of the water from the cliff side. We could probably sleep in the car in the parking lot and hang out on the beach a...more

What's Up? Our panel at PAX Prime 2014, Far Cry 4, Destiny Beta, Vietnam & a ferret

Max and I thought it would be a good idea to keep everyone posted on our goings-on. This was spurned by many, many people wondering why we've been filming in Max's actual kitchen. We answer this question, and some y'all have...more
