Friday Night Fights: Thanks for being HUGE

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday everyone! I just wanted to take a few moments to thank all of you who decided to take the plunge and go HUGE!

For me, the choice was easy. I've been with Destructoid since early 2007 and this is most definitely my "home away from home". I've made many a good friend here. Played many a good game with them as well, not just on Friday nights, but at varying times, day or night.

One such friend is Scield, who was just interviewed over on the Cblogs, you should totally go check it out. (Mad props to Everyday Legend and OpiumHerz for keeping this great series alive.)

I also want to take a moment to thank Niero, Dale, and Hamza, as well as the rest of the Destructoid staff for not only making me feel welcomed and part of the family, but for also handing out cool free stuff, like this copy of NightSky from Nicalis, just for being HUGE. [And also Andy Dixon too because he gave me this job and I am an ungrateful ass. --Andy]

Anyway, enough with the gushing. Thanks again to all of you out there, HUGE or not. I consider you all, part of my extended family.

Now 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!

In my haste to finally factory reset my tablet, I erased a blog I had worked on. Thankfully, it's fresh in my mind. It's another MGS blog, but it goes the opposite way of my last MGS blog. Pray this guy is not your husbando, for he is shit.

Just ate a disgusting amount of sugary wonders in a Fat Tuesday blowout. Chocolate (birthday) cake, Oreos, brownies, cookie dough, and some creme brule thing. Satiation by way of eat-'til-you-puke is what Shenanigans says!

Is there any real difference between the PS3 and the PS4 versions of Valkyria Chronicles?

Voting for Broforce made me think of the most American person that could ever exist. President Michael Wilson!

By the way, that IGPX collection is a new release. It's the first time the show is available in a complete package, and the first time it's been available in any format in about 10 years. [url]http://amzn.to/20JSMCd[/url]

This is your daily reminder that Taxi Driver is the best movie ever and if you disagree then all I can say is: God, you're square.

I love when someone at work tries to claim you screwed up on something and it completely backfires on them. I try to help them save face afterwards, but secretly I'm like...

I still love Tearaway Unfolded despite the shit pacing and hell yeah I'm going for that plat. It'll be my 2nd plat, first since Sly 2 Remastered back in 2012. So it's been a while. gotta beat the game first tho :P
CoilWhine avatarCoilWhine
Tearaway Unfolded's final level is my least favorite kind. Life is Strange-esque linear path (through a void) of moments from the game. Bleh.
Shinta avatarShinta
Gravity Rush Remastered looks reallllllyyyyyy nice. Video and screenshots didn't quite do it justice. Seeing it in person is much better.

We are T-7 days until the release of Street Fighter V! There will be a blog released on the February 15, only one day before the release. This blog is about reflecting on Street Fighter IV.

Can good videogame music sugarcoat a game so much that we forget it's a bad game?

My Wii U came back from repairs... It does not recognize me anymore. It does not remember anything - Xenoblade, Smash, everything. Also, the game disc that was trapped when I sent it is in a separate sleeve, cracked. RIP data.

I got my RNDM Viynl by Mega Ran last night but forgot to post a picture. Enjoying it so far though.

Damn, my 26" monitor just crapped out on me. S'what I get for buying knockoff brands I guess. Back to the 19" non-HD monitor for me.

I miss mapping :( I was thinking about learning GameMaker, but now I'm leaning toward Unreal Engine 4, maybe to map for the new UT?

I've spent the past 3 hours with that Lost Planet spinoff EX Troopers after finding it on sale for $20US on Amazon. It would've been great if Capcom had released it here. Or if they decided 2 turn that IP into Monster Hunter w/ guns set in an open world
