Friday Night Fights: It's your Destiny


Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday!

If you haven’t heard yet, one of the most anticipated games of the year, Destiny, has finally launched it’s much awaited Beta. I remember the first time I saw footage of Destiny, I was blown away. It was basically Borderlands, which I loved, but everything seemed bigger, better.

After playing around five hours of the beta, I can safely say that Destiny is going to be one of my most played games this year, and I cannot wait to play it with my fellow Dtoiders.

For those of you who have played the beta, or alpha for that matter, has your opinion of the game changed any? Are you more excited? Less excited? Neutral? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear what you have to say.

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 theforums, 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 thecommunity blogsthanks 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!
