Friday Night Fights: Love And Monsters Edition


Hello and welcome to the first official Friday Night Fights post of this weird new era. As I write this, I'm currently re-watching Spring, an indie horror romance that was released recently. Normally putting the words "horror" and "romance" next to each other you end up with some boring, pretentious Gothic horror movie about self-loathing vampires. In this case, it's really a mix of Before Sunrise and H.P. Lovecraft. I really love it. Partially because it plays to my interests (I'm a huge Lovecraft fan) and partially because it manages to do something unique. The two leads do bang up work, especially Nadia Hilker. I don't want to spoil it overmuch because it's currently free to stream on Amazon Prime Instant and you should put aside two hours with a loved one and watch it. Or be like me and watch it on your own and momentarily forget your crushing lonliness and the steadily increasing speed at which death is approaching. You know, happy shit like that.

I like that people are using genre film as a jump off to mix and match pieces from other genres. A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is another recent movie that mixes horror and romance, but it has a distinctly more art house Jim Jarmusch-ian style. It actually bills itself as an Iranian vampire spaghetti western. Possibly a smaller potential audience but still a good watch.

At any rate, I'm not going to be hosting anything this week due to being a broke ass wage slave who couldn't afford to re-up his PSN account due to a couple emergency purchases (pants and shoes over PSN). However, feel free to jump in with your own game. I had a great time with DepressedOptimist playing Rocket League on Sunday. I got why people have gotten so into it but it didn't really click until my first public game. So simple but so perfect. Car soccer. I love being a gamer.

So, if you're interested in hosting for Friday Night Fights or Weekend Warriors, leave a comment below with the following information:

Game (System)
Time (EST, please)
Your Disqus/C-Blog name
Your GamerTag
(Optional: Twitch ID if you intend to stream, additional information as necessary)

Again, this is a PS FNF blog but we're currently accepting hosts for games on any system: Microsoft, Nintendo, PC OR Sony. Hope to see you out there.

About PS FNFone of us since 12:46 AM on 09.05.2011

Welcome to the home of PlayStation Friday Night Fights.

Friday Night Fights is a weekly event where we, community members, cooperate with or murder each other online. There is a forum thread for planning and then a blog post here with the final schedule. Keep an eye out for both them if you want to play some games.

If you are new to the whole thing, check this out: FNF FAQ: Everything you need to know (but never asked) about Friday Night Fights

The Guide

To Play

� Keep yourself up to date on the schedule. The list in the forums can change several times throughout the week.

� Leave a message with your PSN name and which games from the schedule you want to play. More people will play if other people are playing, so speak up.

� Send a PSN friend request to the person hosting the game which includes a message with your Dtoid name. If you leave out who you are on the site, they might think you're just a random friend request and ignore you.

To Host

� If you want your game listed on the schedule, we need the game, the time, and your PSN ID. We need the specific game, not an abbreviation that applies to more than one; a start time, even if you're playing "all night"; and we need your PSN ID even if you think we know it already.

� Don't worry about hosting the same game or hosting a game at the same time as someone else. Instead, think of it like a movie theater; more than one game can run at the same time.

� Make sure you have at least an hour to play. That's only two or three matches of the average shooter and those go by pretty quick.

� Check the comments, on both the forum post and the cblog when it goes up on Friday, to see if someone has said they'll play. You might have missed their PSN message or your friend list might be full.
