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

3:30 PM on 05.31.2013 // mrandydixon

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!

N-Not that P1 isn't perfect the way she is! Isn't that right sweetie? Yes it... Oh, now don't you go and listen to those P2 fans! They just go around spreading rumors and pretending Hitler was just a handsome gentleman in sunglasses, that's what THEY do!

Persona Q has made me realize I really want a Persona 1 remake on 3DS in a similar style. A lot. A loooooooot. You listening, Atlus?
Super Mario Maker, the announcement of Sonic Lost World for Steam, and remembering all of the mods that got made for the PC version of Sonic Generations makes me wish SEGA/Sonic Team would make their own dedicated Sonic level creation game.

Hey, is your fridge running? You better catch it. I mean, it has all your food, and without food, you die. Like, forever. You don't wanna die right? If you die, how will you watch The Good wife with your favourite bowl of Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Go.

Spooky yet totally true gaming fact: the bushes and the clouds in Super Mario Bros are the same exact shape. #Spooky

The newest PS4 update finally got rid of that bug where I'd get the "you can customize your power options" message every time I turned on my console!

Should I just pass on MGSV? I haven't really liked any of the games after Snake Eater, and it's being used as a money sink at the moment.

[Youtube][/youtube] All the episodes are on youtube now. Also I never knew they got to do a season 3. Pretty cool. Now back to Transformers. Scored a gc to my favorite thai place too. Pad ahoy bitches. It's been too long.

Interviewer: Konami, why are you selling cosmetic DLC for MGSV? Konami exec: I breathe through my skin.

Sonic Lost World is coming to PC on November 2nd for $25! I may double dip, hopefully they'll make the final boss less rage-inducing. Ah well, I can always grind for extra lives lol.

Wow I just want a mic for the PS4...why are they so expensive ;_;

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.
