Friday Night Fights: Hyrule Warriors

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday!

I was totally gonna get around to writing this post like, really early in the day and stuff but then Hyrule Warriors happened. I’ve never been a big fan of the whole Dynasty Warriors series, but I absolutely adore the Zelda universe, after playing until my GamePad battery died, I can honestly say that this very well may be my favorite game of the year so far.

No, really, it’s that good. If you been on the fence regarding the whole Wii U purchase thing, now’s a great time to dive in. With Hyrule Warriors here, Bayonetta coming soon, and a very strong back library of games ready to be played, you really could do much, much worse (I’m looking at you, Xbox One). 

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!
