Friday Night Fights: Let's NARP it up

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday everyone!

I want to take a few minutes today to highlight an awesome community event happening this weekend. Since Friday Night Fights is all about getting together with your fellow D'toider, I figured this would be the best outlet to highlight the Southeastern NARP that will be happening tomorrow evening in Orlando, Florida.

If you live in or around the Orlando area, you are more than welcome to come out and play some games with other awesome community members. All the details are below and a huge thanks to Everyday Legend and Scield for getting all of this going and for informing me about it, since I live in Orlando and all.

Here are the deets!

What: Destructoid Southeastern NARP!
When: Saturday, March 15th, 2014
What Time: 6:00 PM - 2:00 AM (or later, who knows)
The plan is to get together around six pm for dinner, the location that has been decided is Fuddruckers (burgers and more!) located on Apopka/Vineland (not too far from Player 1) . After dinner, everyone will be heading over to;

Where: Player One (Bar/Arcade = Barcade)
Player 1 is an arcade that specializes in arcade games and consoles, both new and old. This should be a pretty great place to hang out, drink some beers (or soda, or water) and play some games with your fellow Destructoid Community Members.

There is a forum thread as well as community blog where you can talk to those who will be attending and see what's been going on.

If you can't make, don't worry, there will be other NARPS throughout the year in other locations, the best part, is that you can start your very own community NARP for your neck of the woods, since these are community driven. Check out the Dtoid Community Meet Up thread here. Who know's, you may end up with like, hundreds of new friends you never knew you wanted!

Alright, now that that's out of the way, 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!

I dig the feature in Until Dawn where, if you have the Playstation camera, it will record you briefly during jump scares for you to watch later. It's a really neat use of an underused peripheral. Too bad I'm dead inside and never react to them.

Not saying this is the case, but Kojima has gone on record as being a huge Mad Max: Fury Road fan. Konami decided to release MGSV on the same day as Mad Max TVG. They're trying piss on Kojima's lawn, man.

OH WOW. Talk about a complete about face. After slogging through the horrid beginning and slow ass swap sequence this game picked up exponentially. So far, I'm enjoying the hell out of it now. All if forgiven. Thank you based Kojima.

also Fallout Shelter just made me utter this: "I have to get these pregnancies done.." life is trivial in this game!

Let it be known that Metal Gear 2 for MXS has aged horribly and is no fun to play. In the midst of a MGS marathon, looks like I'm skipping ahead to MGS.

Just out of curiosity, does anybody here still play Mario Kart 8 at all frequently?

Neighbors ended up calling the cops. I hid under a cardboard box. Police officers were perplexed but went back to their patrol routes after a minute or so.

I've been thinking of starting up a criticism-minded "game of the month" type podcast. Would anyone be interested in something like that? If you'd wanna be part of it, let me know, I'm generating ideas and looking for contributors
