Friday Night Fights: It's your Destiny

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday!

If you haven't heard yet, one of the most anticipated games of the year, Destiny, has finally launched it's much awaited Beta. I remember the first time I saw footage of Destiny, I was blown away. It was basically Borderlands, which I loved, but everything seemed bigger, better. 

After playing around five hours of the beta, I can safely say that Destiny is going to be one of my most played games this year, and I cannot wait to play it with my fellow Dtoiders.

For those of you who have played the beta, or alpha for that matter, has your opinion of the game changed any? Are you more excited? Less excited? Neutral? Let me know in the comments, I'd love to hear what you have to say.

Now, let's get to the reason why you came here in the first place, 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.

Someone is trying to log into my Dtoid account. I keep getting emails notifying me of bad password attempts. What?

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.

I was just accosted by the most gorgeous cosmetics saleswoman with an adorable Hatian-Creole accent. It's not often my attention gets that immersed in a total bullshit sales pitch. Well, that and I didn't want her to let go of my arm.

My son just washed my Majora's Mask NEW 3DS because the screen was dirty. Bahahaha *cries uncontrollably*

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.
