Friday Night Fights: So... anyone buying the new Gears?

Get your game on with the Destructoid community!

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

So Gears of War: Judgment comes out next week. Anybody biting? I've personally added and removed the thing from my GameFly queue at least a half-dozen times by now, as I simply cannot decide whether I want to play it or not.

I've always been a huge fan of the Gears campaigns, and from what I can tell this one looks to be the same action-packed thrill-ride we've come to expect. And yet, I just can't bring myself to care. Maybe it's because I've still got Tomb Raider to play and BioShock Infinite coming out the week after (not to mention a gigantic backlog that grows larger every month -- I should really consult a physician), or maybe it's just because I loved the Marcus and Dom bromance more than I was willing to admit. Who knows! All I know is that Judgment is currently sitting in my GameFly queue, and I'm thinking about removing it yet again.

Either way, I'm certain at least SOMEBODY will be playing it come next Friday's FNF... right?

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!

Spent most of my day going back and playing Assassin's Creed: Unity. I really quite enjoyed it. It's a good game.

Reserved my copy of The Phantom Pain today and my car died on the way back home. Thanks Konami. On the plus side, I got to ride in a tow truck to the auto shop. Felt like an elementary school field trip or something for a few minutes.

I gotta to admit: it feels nice to be able to play a Pokemon game without thinking to myself "oh shit, I got to fill up my Pokedex". It's nice. Oh yeah, and for the record, I'm playing through Soul Silver.

I enter the Gamestop. I set a Toad plushie atop a Yoshi plushie. I set Mario to go down on Kirby. I leave the Gamestop.

Lacking recording/social features aside (I actually do love that aspect of the PS4), I've been really enjoying my Xbone. Sunset Overdrive is like Saints Row meets Tony Hawk and lovingly self-aware.
