Half the fun of Call of Duty 4 was thinking up different scenarios and rules to further your own enjoyment of the game. Many times, this involved limiting weapon choices significantly. Running around with a knife like Micheal Myers while every other player is unable to fight back? Brilliant stuff.
I haven't really seen too much of this occur in Modern Warfare 2, but wouldn't you know it -- I'm out of commission, and now the regular Xbox 360 crew is delving into these shenanigans.
"Rusty Knife Fights" is the name of the game, and you can read all about it here. Electro Lemon even whipped up a fancy image of lobsters knife fighting for the occasion. Go look at it!
I was really pumped to use the "gutted like a kipper" tag, but it's mysteriously vanished. You've foiled me for the last time, Hamza!
New to FNF? Read this: Each week, a bunch of Destructoid readers and usually an editor or two get together to play some videogames online. Basically, this is what Friday Night Fights are all about.
The planning for FNF takes place in the forums, where community members volunteer to host by posting their information (gamertag, time to meet up, game, etc.) in the forum post corresponding to the system they're interested in playing on.
Then, every Friday, reminder posts for those who don't read the forums regularly go up in the community blogs section all thanks to a dedicated group of cool individuals. And for everyone who wants their info all in one place, they have got my weekly recap posts to look forward to between 4:30 - 5:30 PM EST.
Now that you're here, just scan the list below and find a game you want to play. All that's left to do after that is to join the match by contacting the host below using any means necessary. For Wii, you might have to be a little creative, but for 360/PS3 a simple "invite me" message will be fine.
The names on the left are our Destructoid handles, while the ones on the right are our online handles (PSN IDs, for example). Don't see a game you want to play? Feel free to post a comment offering to take up hosting duties yourself.
If you want to get your gaming done later on in the evening, scroll on down past this section, otherwise hit up the following European hosts/early FNFers for a good time.
