Friday Night Fights: Destiny

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday!

One of the more anticipated games of the year, Destiny, has finally launched. So far, it seems as though there is a very noticeable dividing line of people who are either loving every minute of it or those who are less than blown away by what they’ve played so far.

Our own Chris Carter has been playing Destiny and has been reviewing it as he goes. I picked it up and have been playing it, and I definitely have an opinion on what I’ve played so far. Yep, I sure do have an opinion…. I am a little surprised though that there’s only one person hosting it on the Xbox side of the fence, and curious as to how the sales are broken out between the two consoles.

How bout you? Let me know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below.

Anyway. let’s get to the reason why you came here in the first place, 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!

                                                          There is the darkness with the radio, playin’ low. The secrets that we shared
                                                          Mountains that we moved, caught like a wildfire out of control
