Ever since the Community Playdate events started, I always wished that Destructoid would host an event. Well, my wish came true when we had out first even with Battlefield 3. I was a part of this event and I am not gonna lie, we had out asses handed to us on a silver platter. Never before have I been beaten so bad yet having such a fun time. I always wondered if another event would happen... and then the game was chosen, Halo Reach. These community events truly show what Friday Night Fights are capable of. Having fun with a group of friends while also competing against strangers. Who knows, you may even make some new friends along the way.
My next big question is... what game should be next? I have a strong feeling that it NEEDS to be Max Payne 3. Rockstar even made a special crew for us
! I believe that it is time we make a stand and make a presence in the Rockstar Social Club community. You can always support the community by just joining the crew and playing online!
What other games should Destructoid host in future? 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:
Xbox Live Gamertag
