Friday Night Fights: Let's all STFUAJPG for a while

Get your game on with the Destructoid community!

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

There's been a lot of drama in the videogame community lately, between the will they/won't they Xbox One controveries, Anita Sarkeesian's latest video, whether or not Podtoid is appropriate listening material for children, etc. Hell, you know it's gotten bad when our resident fun-loving, image-sharing, Lisa-Frank-fan-club-presidenting Occams electric toothbrush even comes out of his basement attic cave to sound off on the matter.

So I propose we all take a break from the SERIOUS BUSINESS of video gaming and just play some actual goddamn videogames for a while. Even if only for a night, let's lay down our arms, pick up our controllers, and try to rekindle that spirit that brought us all together to begin with. You know: FUN!

So who's with me? Tired of the BS and ready to just kick back and enjoy games again? Hit the jump to see what we've got in store! And don't worry; I'm sure you'll have something new to get angry about come Monday...

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!

Spent most of my day going back and playing Assassin's Creed: Unity. I really quite enjoyed it. It's a good game.

Reserved my copy of The Phantom Pain today and my car died on the way back home. Thanks Konami. On the plus side, I got to ride in a tow truck to the auto shop. Felt like an elementary school field trip or something for a few minutes.

Humble Bundle End of Summer Sale! Get a free Stealth Inc. 2 maybe? I dunno. Just signal boosting for no particular reason. Maybe 'cause I got a free game? Least I could do. https://www.humblebundle.com/store

I gotta to admit: it feels nice to be able to play a Pokemon game without thinking to myself "oh shit, I got to fill up my Pokedex". It's nice. Oh yeah, and for the record, I'm playing through Soul Silver.

I enter the Gamestop. I set a Toad plushie atop a Yoshi plushie. I set Mario to go down on Kirby. I leave the Gamestop.

Lacking recording/social features aside (I actually do love that aspect of the PS4), I've been really enjoying my Xbone. Sunset Overdrive is like Saints Row meets Tony Hawk and lovingly self-aware.

Wait, wasn't that Pokemon Detective Pikachu game supposed to come out this year?

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.
