Friday Night Fights: WWCD

3:00 PM on 05.16.2014 // ChillyBilly

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday Everyone!

I was having a pretty tough time thinking of something to write this week, there's so much going on in gaming right now. E3 is right around the corner, sales are peaking and then slumping, hardware isn't selling as much as companies expected, there's always some drama going on, someone hates this and someone hates that. It can be and often is frustrating at times.

I try to be as positive as I can though, if I told you that it was easy, I'd be lying, but I do try. Hell, years ago I would have been right in the trenches with everyone else, arguing my point until I was blue in the face, nowadays though, I just kinda roll with the punches. I try not to get too involved in all of the back and forth conversations, I may pop in and give my opinion, I may even stick around for a couple of comments afterwards, sometimes, anyway.

You know how I get through it all? I ask myself, "What Would Chad Do?" Obviously, I'm talking about the one and only, Chad Concelmo, basically one of the greatest people to ever live and grace the front page of Destructoid. Chad's glowing personality and always positive demeanor is missed around these parts, especially by me. I miss waking up, turning on my PC and finding a new Chad article waiting.

I think that's it, I think I figured it out. It's closing in on E3 time here at Destructoid and I know there are no Chad article's waiting for me. I guess I'm just a bit sad by it all.

I definitely think we should all be a bit more like Chad though, no wait, let me correct that, we definitely need to be more like Chad.

Chad Concelmo, wherever you are, thank you. Thank you for being awesome and thank you for showing me how much better being positive is.

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!

A Nintendo rep gave this to me today because she likes talking to me. I do have lots of the Old AC eReader cards I guess I could put in it... [img][/img]

I'm still trying to figure out how to do it, but for the most part I like what I've seen of the new blog editor. My first blog post using it should go up tomorrow.

Daily VGM #20 (Bonus) - Valak Mountain Night (Xenoblade Chronicles) [youtube][/youtube] This theme perfectly captures the essence of Valak Mountain. It feel serene and calm, as well as mountain-esque (lol).

What does one do when MGS V has lost its luster and Persona 4: DAN is growing stale? Listen to Queens of the Stone Age, of course. And wonder; is Steins;Gate worth the asking price? I want it, but not sure if I $30 - $40 want it...

Been in a bit of a rut this week and as such haven't really been satisfied with any of my games. Therefore, I'm going to start Destiny again on my new PS+ account. Any tips given the amount of updates it's had?

Bought a used knockoff game console called the Power Kracker 2013, which claimed to have 76,000 games. The AC adapter was missing and someone had crammed an off-brand GameCube controller inside the box. I don't know what I expected.

I actually love the quests in Novigrad where you write a play. It's a fun and lighthearted break from the tragedy of Baron and horror of Velen and the Crones.

I preordered Tales of Zestria and Disgaea 5 because they were £10 cheaper that way, WHO WANTS TO FIGHT ME HUH?

Man, plague of shadows is gooood. It really fleshes out plague knight and the world by extension, and it has some fun story stuff. Plus plague knight plays differently enough to shovel knight to make whats old feel new again. Deep customization too.
