Friday Night Fights: Smash and aliens and orcs, oh my!

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday!

And what a Friday it is! Tis a great time to be a gamer, my friends. Not only do we have a new portable Smash Bros. game, but we also have two licensed games in Shadow of Mordor and Alien: Isolation, that are, wait for it, actually good.

Crazy, right?! There’s been an awful lot of negativity and nonsense surrounding games these days, but frankly, ain’t nobody got time for that, especially when there are some pretty excellent games out there that demand to be played.

So what say you, Friday faithful? Now that the season of game after game has arrived, what will you be buying and playing?

Now, 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!

Tonight’s Streamers:

  • Coming Soon  
    Host: This could be you! (Twitch Channel: Twitch.com/Thiscouldbeyou)
    Time: TBD
