Friday Night Fights: Start your engines


Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday everyone!

Not sure if any of you have heard about this new game that launched today, something about a plumber and his friends racing little go karts around a track and all that silliness….

Oh, who am I kidding, of course we’ve all heard of it, it’s Mario Kart!!!

That’s right, Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U is officially out today and it is absolutely GLORIOUS! I’d probably be putting a lot more effort into this post if I wasn’t sitting here, salivating over the case, thinking about how many hours of my life I am going to waste racing and racing and racing and racing…..oh and karting.

I guess what I’m trying to say is, Mario Kart 8 is out, which means that for the next few weeks no other games exist.

See ya on the tracks!

And on that note…..let’s get to 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!
