So Destiny, huh? It was one of the most anticipated games of this year and has a massive budget behind it and, so far, the reviews have been average. I've enjoyed my time with it but I definetly see the flaws in it. Living in its shadow was a game that I was interested in but it seemed to fly below the radar during this past year: Shadows of Mordor.
That game released the other day and it has been swimming in great press, absolutely blowing Destiny away. Granted, they are two completely different games so you can't compare the scores but I think it surprised a lot of people who weren't expecting it. I'll definitely pick it up around the holidays and give it a go.
As far as the Xbox FNF goes, we're a little light on the games (again) this week. If there's anything you want to host and you didn't get to make it into the forums, post in the comments!
New to Friday Night Fights? It's easy to get involved!
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 volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up here in the cblogs followed by a recap post on the front page on the front page for last-minute planning.
To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! (Don't forget to say you're from Dtoid!) If you'd rather host something yourself, just post your details below in the following format:
Game: Game Name
Host: Dtoid Username
Gamertag: Xbox Live Gamertag
Time: Time (Eastern please!)
We hope to see you online!
