Friday Night Fights: Pocketoid

3:00 PM on 08.15.2014 // ChillyBilly

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday!

Continuing with our discussion from last week, this week we take a look at another awesome, community run program. Pocketoid is Destructoid's community run podcast dedicated to all things handheld. Hosted by community members Crackity Jones and Jackal27.

If you're a fan of handheld gaming, I highly recommend giving them a listen and following them on Twitter. Just recently, the Pocketoid crew had the Shovel Knight team on their show, talking about shoveling and knighting and everything else in between, and it's awesome to see a community show like this, reach out to and have guests such as the Shovel Knight crew on their podcast. 

Basically, what I'm trying to say is, go give them a listen.

Our community is everything, and I would love to continue to promote and talk about all the awesome community supported programs out there.

If there's something you feel I should promote and talk about, please let me know in the comments below or shoot me an email/PM.

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!

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.

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.

Recently watched the Cannon Films documentary, by the director of Not Quite Hollywood. Super entertaining, hilarious, and it almost made me want to watch some of the Cannon films. Almost.

Tip for those who have plasma TVs and are playing MGSV; go into settings and make the weapon icon only appears when you're aiming. I had to buy a new TV because the weapon icon got permanently burned into my plasma.

I was excited to learn one of my favorite Philip K. Dick novels, The Man in the High Castle, would be receiving its own TV show. After watching the pilot, I'm cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to the rest in November.

I'm going to be honest; this is my new favourite line in anything ever. GOTY 2015 and all that. Also cocks: [img][/img]
I thought Laura Kate's Destiny piece for Polygon was pretty neat.
