Friday Night Fights: Virtual Laser League

3:30 PM on 10.25.2013 // ChillyBilly
  @Chillybillz

Game with the Dtoid community

Remember laser tag? Remember how cool it was to run around wearing those goofy looking chest pieces while wielding your mighty laser gun? Remember how fun it was when you would shoot your friends not with bullets, but with rays of light?

I do!

That's why the Virtual Laser League Kickstarter from Clockwork Studios caught my eye. It's certainly an ambitious project (and nowhere near its funding goal), but I love the "fantasy football" feel they're describing. You will be able to draft players, trade them mid-season and compete for prizes throughout an entire season (four seasons per year). You can also become a "free agent" and allow other teams to recruit you.

What's really cool about this whole thing is that instead of just having some arbitrary team running around shooting at another team, there will be "home" and "away" team matches, meaning that when you are playing at "home" you will be playing in your stadium with your fans cheering you on. I've never been a big competitive multiplayer type of person, but what the VLL is offering is very, very interesting. Who knows, you may even see me up there some day, helping out the other team by being constantly shot as I spawn. It's basically my thing.

Anyway, go check it out. Looks like it might be right up our FNF alley!

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!

Is it too late to write about the waifu wars? I don't really have one but there is a female character I have in mind that I want to talk about.

Bayo has high execution barrier and largely unsafe moveset but Witch Time is a huge saving grace. I bet people are double bitter with Corrin being in the game and being pretty reliable in terms of skillset. Definitely a safer and stronger choice than Bayo

I was playing Third Strike on PS3 with my PS4 controller and I tried using the dpad for the first and noticed that it doesnt take corner directional inputs. Is this normal for ps4 controllers on ps3?

I swear, it makes sense in context..... Kinda. Hmmm. Okay, not so much. [img]http://i.imgur.com/YhIzmYN.png[/img]

God damn, Bernie Sanders is just killing it with this speech. Hitting basically every point. He even used the word "oligarchy." Probably the first time I've ever heard that word uttered on CNN. I think a lot of people in power are shitting their pants

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?

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]
