Last week was Christmas movies, this week is TV specials. This is the last FNF before Christmas so this is the last time you're going to have to deal with me talking about Christmas specials for the last time until next year. SO DEAL WITH IT! The only time I get to see snow is on TV so I watch a lot of Christmas specials just to see snow.
I've always been partial to the older Christmas specials. The Grinch, Rudolph, Frosty and all the other poorly animated or lame stop-motion animation shows that I grew up watching were awesome. Maybe it's only because I grew up watching them and I have nostalgia glasses on but compared to the current day specials, there seems to be something missing. I've watched a few with my son that are OK, like the Phineas and Ferb Christmas special, and some that are downright terrible (that list is way too long). There just doesn't seem to be the care that goes into the new ones; like they're only being made because they have to be made.
So like I said before, this is the last post before Christmas so I hope y'all have a Merry Christmas! Hopefully with all the Xbox One sales that went on for the past month, the Xbox FNF will see some new life in the coming weeks. In the mean time, Hanukkah is going strong right now too so Happy Hanukkah too!
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!
