Friday Night Fights: Singing comets

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday!

One thing that many of you may not know about me, is that I fucking love science. Seriously. Space exploration, underwater exploration, things that make the world tick, all that stuff, it makes me giddy and feel like a little child when I’m reading about it.

As many of you may have heard, we successfully landed a “lander” (Philae Rosetta Lander) on comet 67p/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. This in itself, is amazing, however, what’s even more amazing is that this comet is “singing” while shooting through space at more than 80,000 miles per hour. The comet, is emitting a song while shooting through space…

Amazing, simply amazing. You’re probably wondering, “What does this have to do with video games?” — nothing, nothing at all. I just think it’s fucking incredible and wanted to share.

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!
