Friday Night Fights: Pocketoid


Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday!

Continuing with our discussion from last week, this week we take a look at another awesome, community run program. Pocketoid is Destructoid’s community run podcast dedicated to all things handheld. Hosted by community members Crackity Jones and Jackal27.

If you’re a fan of handheld gaming, I highly recommend giving them a listen and following them on Twitter. Just recently, the Pocketoid crew had the Shovel Knight team on their show, talking about shoveling and knighting and everything else in between, and it’s awesome to see a community show like this, reach out to and have guests such as the Shovel Knight crew on their podcast.

Basically, what I’m trying to say is, go give them a listen.

Our community is everything, and I would love to continue to promote and talk about all the awesome community supported programs out there.

If there’s something you feel I should promote and talk about, please let me know in the comments below or shoot me an email/PM.

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!
