Look, I think what we could all use right now is a quick timeout, someone to hit the pause button, suspend all this crazy action for a bit.
It's been a rough week for a lot of people, my thoughts go out to everyone in Boston, the surrounding areas and anyone else whose life has been disrupted due to this week's events.
I'm definitely not trying to take anything away from what has happened, but I am glad that the Friday Night Fights on Destructoid are finally here, let's all gather round the joystick and have some laughs, try to get back to a routine, try to forget about all the craziness and madness that has overtaken us this week.
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
Time (Eastern please!)
We hope to see you online!
