Friday Night Fights: Videogames are awesome

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday!

Today’s post is going to be fairly short. My daughter’s birthday party is today and I have a ton to do to get ready. For those of you who may have missed the new, our very own resplendent black grandmother, Ocamms Electric Toothbrush was recently brought on-board full time to help Andy, Beccy, myself and the rest of the community team.

Also, the always awesome Wrenchfarm (now know as Nic Rowen, whoever that is) has finally been brought on as a writer. I’ve been enjoying Wrench’s blogs for years now and I am beyond excited that all of his lovely words will now be front paged.

Congrats to Ocamms and Nic, everyone should totally leave them a nice message in the comments below (and by nice I mean naughty).

Before I go, if you own a Wii U, and have a hankerin’ for some serious action, go check out the Bayonetta 2 demo (if you haven’t already), it is, without a doubt, the most ridiculously, action packed demo I’ve played all year.

Ridiculous I tells ya.

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!
