Friday Night Fights: Pumpkin Spice Latte

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday!

Now that we’re about to enter the fall season, my Facebook is starting to fill up with the annual “Pumpkin Spice Latte” coffee drinks posts.  Now look, I love the fall, it was one of the major reasons why we moved back to Illinois from Florida. The changing colors on the trees, the cool crisp air, and the smell of fireplaces burning in the distance.

However, the one thing that I absolutely cannot stand, is how everything nowadays, during the fall season, seems to revolve around pumpkin this and pumpkin that. We get it, you like your damn pumpkin flavored drinks, scones, biscuits and pancakes. I just don’t need to hear about it year after year.

I know this has basically nothing to do with video games or Friday Night Fights, I just felt like I needed to get that off my chest.

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!
