Friday Night Fights: Start your engines

3:00 PM on 05.30.2014 // ChillyBilly
  @Chillybillz

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday everyone!

Not sure if any of you have heard about this new game that launched today, something about a plumber and his friends racing little go karts around a track and all that silliness....

Oh, who am I kidding, of course we've all heard of it, it's Mario Kart!!!

That's right, Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U is officially out today and it is absolutely GLORIOUS! I'd probably be putting a lot more effort into this post if I wasn't sitting here, salivating over the case, thinking about how many hours of my life I am going to waste racing and racing and racing and racing.....oh and karting.

I guess what I'm trying to say is, Mario Kart 8 is out, which means that for the next few weeks no other games exist.

See ya on the tracks!

And on that note.....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!

We were discussing Ben Carson, pyramids, corpses, SoFlo, and Nekro's fetishes in the Discord chat if anyone wants to know what it's like down there.

Nintendo just sent me an email to say "Congrats on your new Wii U!". It wasn't new it got fucking FRIED and now all my stuff's gone after repairs - I was in Chapter 9! Chapter 9! 70+ hours on XCX! And that's just one game! I was- *walks off ranting*

Irony: over 9000!. The same UN with staff distributing child porn, Saudi Arabia heading its Human Rights Council and troops accused of rape wants to school Japan on their treatment of women in videogames. You can't can't make up this stuff.

So I got my game recorder. That's good! But I ordered the wrong one. That's bad. So just gotta send back to Amazon and order it. Could've sworn on the website it said the HD60 Elgato let you record old games too.

It just occured to me that given the 99% probablility of there being an update pack to XCOM 2-ala Enemy Within-waiting for a while may be a better option, so that when I do get the game I get it in its optimal form-and on sale, to bring it below 90 total
