Friday Night Fights: It's over

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday!

E3 2014 has finally come to a close. I don't know about the rest of you, but I was very happy with what was shown. Microsoft came out with a bang this year, focusing on what we all wanted from the get go, games. Sony's presentation was decent as well, even if it did become a bit, long-winded towards the end. And then there was Nintendo, the doomed company who just can't seem to get with the times...Oh, did I mention they absolutely killed it this year?! Yea, because they did, in my opinion anyway. Nintendo's digital direct as well as on the floor games coverage via their TreeHouse Direct presentations absolutely made me fall in love with games all over again.

 I do have one complaint though, one that I saw echoed on my Twitter and Facebook feeds, out of all the amazing games shown, how many were slated for 2015? Don't get me wrong, I think it's awesome that next year is gonna be rad for gaming, but damn, seems like the rest of this year as well as the holiday season may be slim pickings.

Oh well, I'll be plenty busy anyway in the coming months with moving and all, so there should be plenty to keep me busy until the flood of games next year. How about the rest of you Friday Faithful?

What stood out to you the most?

And on that note.....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!

Watching Free To Play. I kinda want to try DOTA2, though I'll be very bad at it. Its a very good story of pro-gamer culture, so far. Good Stuff.

Just tried to explain the word BEAT to an ESL student. Reference.com has 58 variations of the definition. At the least, they can finally understand that Michael Jackson was not asking people to fight each other.

Are we really calling followers "fappers" on these quick posts? I knew I loved Dtoid.

If you spend 10 minutes trying to write a Quickpost...can it really be called Quickpost?

So I have enough coins to get a new character in Heroes of the Storm. I like big portly characters like the Butcher or Stitches, but I did enjoy my free week of Tychus. Crowd thoughts?

Today I learned that Bad Rats 2 is a thing that is happening. I don't know how to feel about this.

The temp agency that employs me had me work as a sign spinner today. As in, I held a six foot cardboard arrow-shaped sign and spun it and danced for six hours. It got interesting when a homeless couple confronted me about hogging their spot.

Witches of Crookback Bog from Witcher 3 is the best quest in the whole game and of any game I've played in recent memory.
