Friday Night Fights: Returning to the Battlefield

3:30 PM on 01.18.2013 // mrandydixon

Game with the Dtoid community!

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

For this week's Match of the Week, Elsa and falsenipple are taking us back to the battlefield after waaay too long of a hiatus. Battlefield 3's long-awaited "Aftermath" DLC released last month, and the verdict in our Forums is that it kicks ass! Have you tried it out yet? Why not start tonight?!

This would also be a great time to join one of our Destructoid Battlefield 3 platoons. Click here to become a member of the Xbox 360 one (or here if that one's full), and here for the PlayStation 3 one!

See you folks on the battlefield!

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!

Am I the only one who has to pull up their sleeves to play competantly at videogames? When my hoodie's sleeves are down I play like a piece of shit but when i pull them up, I have more flexibility.

PSA: Just picked up Falco amiibo at Best Buy. They had about 20 Tom Nook, 10 singles of Splatoon Boy/Girl, the Splatoon triple pack, about 30 Marths with a big sign saying "Look Who's Back!," Dark Pit, and probably about 15 others. Not too shabby.

I long for the day that people get over their weird circle jerk hatred for FFXIII related things and just ignore things they don't care about.

I'm upgrading my PC on the cheap and I'm going with AMD, out of these two CPUs, wich one is better?, A8-7650K or FX-6300?

Huh, I think we broke LightningFarron19, you guys.

Being a video game-focused website, it's not often I get to gush about Godzilla. So have a link to one of my favorite tracks in the entire series:

Fallout 4 really does bring back memories. Specifically, memories of finding unlikely loot on a animal's corpse. I'm just grateful that Bloatfly didn't know how to use that 15 pound flamethrower it was apparently carrying in its bum bag.

I no longer require seasoning for my Thanksgiving dinner because between the Lightning post here and Undertale beating Fallout 3 in the "best game" vote on GameFAQs, I have all the salt I need. (Image) [img][/img]

Yeah...fuck the NES Castlevanias! Think I'll skip straight to Symphony of the Night.

No more heroes. Wii or PS3 version?

Thanks for that Mother 4 article yesterday I've been listening to nothing but GBA-era soundtracks, truly my golden years of gaming.

If you stop to think about it, Thanksgiving is basically #Darksiders2: The Holiday.

Your daily reminder that my band can beat up your band.

Hoping more character customization options come of the next Smash-centric Nintendo Direct. Playing as Wrong-Hair, Wrong-Face Robin feels weird. Female Robin Amiibo, too. And let 3DS users download the whole OST. My wishes are reasonable, I think.

What's the most outrageous thing you could ask for this Annual Festive Gift-Giving Holiday?

Threshold's last album, For the Journey is so goddamn solid. Progressive metal at it's finest.
