Friday Night Fights: Expansion

‘Tis the season for quality expansion packs, so it seems!

This week saw the release of two highly-anticipated pieces of DLC: Battlefield 3‘s “Back to Karkand” and Gears of War 3‘s “RAAM’s Shadow”. Both offer a hefty hunk of content for a reasonable price (even more reasonable if you purchased the Limited Edition of the former or the “Season Pass” for the latter!), and both come highly recommended!

I’ve personally been enjoying the new maps, vehicles and weapons of “Back to Karkand” non-stop since it finally hit the 360 on Tuesday (it was released last week for PS3), and our own Joseph Leray awarded high praise to “RAAM’s Shadow” in his review earlier this week. What more do you need to know?!

So what do you say? Do you plan on picking up either pack? Regardless, there’s plenty of gaming to be had tonight, so hit the jump and see what’s on the menu!

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 volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up in the community blogs followed by a recap post here 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, sound off in the comments section below!

We hope to see you online!
