Friday Night Fights: Say hello, and wave goodbye

Let's give a warm welcome to Destructoid's new Community Playdate Manager!

[Yes, those are my kids. And yes, I know they are awesome.]

It's been almost two years to the day since I took over writing the front page Friday Night Fights posts here on Dtoid, and I haven't missed a single week since. (That's over one million FNF posts, for those of you who know math good like me.) In that time, we've brought you some awesome community playdates (some of which were featured on Xbox Live), given out lots of FNF-themed prizes, and even commissioned a new Friday Night Fights banner which will feature the avatars of over 40 Dtoiders duking it out in a giant brawl when all is said and done. Not a bad legacy, if I do say so myself!

In spite of all that, I've been feeling lately like it's time to bring some new ideas to the table to reinvigorate this long-standing Dtoid tradition, so last week I called up my friend Chillybilly and asked him if he was interested in taking over the job; he couldn't have been more excited. And so, it is with great pleasure that I welcome in the newest member of Destructoid's community team, Bill Platt!

As Playdate Manager, Bill will be handling all the front page Friday Night Fights and Team Fortress 2sday posts from here on out, as well as any other community playdates we happen to do (hint: we're going to be doing a lot more). Playdates are nothing new to Bill -- he's been curating the Xbox FNF blog for years now -- but he brings with him a fresh perspective and energy that I think will go a long way toward making our community gaming sessions more exciting and varied than ever.

Of course, I won't be going anywhere -- I'm still your Community Manager. But my hope is that, with Bill in charge of this part of my job, I'll be free to focus my efforts on other awesome things, both on and offsite.

But enough about that! You're here for one reason and one reason only: to FIGHT! So hit the jump to see what we've got in store for you tonight. You kids have fun <3

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!

Bwahahahaha .... my helicopter now arrives in the middle of a fight blaring "Take on Me" on the loudspeakers. Metal Gear 5, 10/10. [youtube]https://youtu.be/djV11Xbc914[/youtube]

Oh neat, Hollow Knight got through the Colosseum of Fools stretch goal while no one was looking. Shame they couldn't get to three characters but the game still looks awesome.

S Rank is so satisfying. Too bad I rarely earn it!

My MGSV: The Phantom Pain playthrough has quickly devolved into a journey to fill out Big Boss' 80's synth pop collection. And I couldn't be happier.

You know what I love? Game tgat force you to connect to their servers even though you only want to play single player. Then the servers are down an the game tries for like 5 minutes, not even giving you a way to cancel the process, you just have to wait

In today's Spelunky daily challenge, I was nibbled by a bat that pushed me into a Tiki trap that landed me dead on Kali's alter. Kali was pleased with the bat's sacrifice.

The ending of "Return to Crookback Bog" in TW3 I got was so depressing. Wow. I think I need a break...

I'm sitting here play Metal Gear V, absolutely loving it. But in the back of my mind ... all I can think about is Mario Maker. I'm really excited for that game!

Sold a digital item on Steam, that came with a physical item, for more than the cost of the physical item. This is the second time I've done this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Everyone right now is playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. And here I am, waiting for Super Mario Maker to come out. And also Star Fox Zero.

Patrick Hancock hates babies. Rick and Morty.... I wish I could view thee second season. I need to play MGSV. I spray farted earlier.
