Friday Night Fights: WWCD


Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday Everyone!

I was having a pretty tough time thinking of something to write this week, there’s so much going on in gaming right now. E3 is right around the corner, sales are peaking and then slumping, hardware isn’t selling as much as companies expected, there’s always some drama going on, someone hates this and someone hates that. It can be and often is frustrating at times.

I try to be as positive as I can though, if I told you that it was easy, I’d be lying, but I do try. Hell, years ago I would have been right in the trenches with everyone else, arguing my point until I was blue in the face, nowadays though, I just kinda roll with the punches. I try not to get too involved in all of the back and forth conversations, I may pop in and give my opinion, I may even stick around for a couple of comments afterwards, sometimes, anyway.

You know how I get through it all? I ask myself, “What Would Chad Do?” Obviously, I’m talking about the one and only,Chad Concelmo, basically one of the greatest people to ever live and grace the front page of Destructoid. Chad’s glowing personality and always positive demeanor is missed around these parts, especially by me. I miss waking up, turning on my PC and finding a new Chad article waiting.

I think that’s it, I think I figured it out. It’s closing in on E3 time here at Destructoid and I know there are no Chad article’s waiting for me. I guess I’m just a bit sad by it all.

I definitely think we should all be a bit more like Chad though, no wait, let me correct that, we definitely need to be more like Chad.

Chad Concelmo, wherever you are, thank you. Thank you for being awesome and thank you for showing me how much better being positive is.

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!
