Friday Night Fights: It’s Glorious

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday Everyone!

Before we get to the games, I want to give my monthly thanks to everyone who hosts and participates in these community events (Team Fortress 2sdays/Friday Night Fights/Weekend Warriors). It’s because of you that we keep this going.

So for the past year, I’ve been doing all my gaming on the Playstation TV/monitor thing that came out a few years back. My big TV was struck by lightning (it hit right outside my house) and fried all my HDMI ports. Since the TV was older, I didn’t feel like spending the cash to replace the ports.

Now, the Playstation monitor is great, let me just say that now, granted it’s a bit small, but the quality of the image it displays is pretty phenomenal. I felt, however, that it was time to finally buy a new TV, especially since I now have a new PS4.

I went out last weekend and bought a new 60″ Sony Bravia (KDL60W850B if anyone is interested) and let me tell you, going from a little 23″ screen to a 60″ is, well, ridiculous. Killzone Shadowfall, Battlefield 4Resogun and especially inFamous: Second Son look absolutely glorious on this thing.

It’s crazy how something like changing the TV you play games on can renew your excitement for games in general. I was in a slump for a bit there, now, I can’t seem to get enough.

I could go on and on, but that’s not why you’re here, you’re here to play some games, so let’s get to it!

Alright, now that that’s out of the way, let’s get to 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!
