Friday Night Fights: Start your engines

3:00 PM on 05.30.2014 // ChillyBilly

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!

Robin secretly controls the boobs of Nintendo characters. She stole the Xenoblade boobs and took the Fatal Frame lingerie for herself. #DammitRobin [img][/img]

I was just playing Skyrim and wondered if anyone has come up with Fallout 3/New Vegas weapon mods for Skyrim? Fighting dragons with assault weapons sounds almost necessary. [img][/img]

Just bought Fallout: New Vegas. Throw me the best mods there are that AREN'T Total Conversion mods. So now Who Vegas - yet.

For an early Christmas present I got my girlfriend Wooly World to go with our new Wii U. I've gotten more joy out of how adorable all the character designs are than I'd like to admit.

Hey Dtoiders ! Steam just destroyed my wallet ! Share here what you bought in this sale !

And so I purchased not just Hyper Dimension Neptunia, but also its sequel and Grim Fandango Remastered in the Steam Sale, and it isn't even the end of the first day. God damnit. At least refunds are thing a now.

I'm currently writing a review for a mobile game, but only because I'm enjoying the hell out it. I'm honestly enjoying it far more than Puzzles and Dragons.

Damn, I think I'm Bruce Willis from Unbreakable. Just fell of a 12-foot ladder and all I got was a little scratch on my finger.

After I finish Fallout 4 I'm thinking of 100%ing Skyrim and then installing a TON of dinosaur mods on it.

4 hours into Hotline Miami 2 and I'm finding it just as fun as the original. So far it's a good balance between frustration and satisfaction. Still have no idea what the story is about.

1. Start playing Ocarina of Time again. 2. Start having fun. 3. Discover fishing area. 4. Stop having fun.

A 2-d hovercraft platforming exploration game just came out today. Have fun collecting the coins! My record so far is 140.

Holy shit the new David Bowie video/song is just lovely.

So many people angry at Play-Asia right now. Totally not exactly the kind of backlash Tecmo were trying to avoid by not releasing the game here in the first place.

If you're a UK kid there's a Wii U 32 GB Wind Waker Premium Pack on Amazon for £240. It says sale... I dunno how much of a saving that is. You tell me.

Community Question: Not strictly speaking video game-related, but screw it. Team Captain America or Team Iron Man?
