Friday Night Fights: All about Firefight edition

Recommended Videos

These last few weeks, I’ve been complaining about the lack of new games with a solid multiplayer component. It’s made my totally irrelevant (in the grand scheme of things) job of finding something interesting to talk about for these Friday Night Fights posts difficult.

Now that Halo 3: ODST is out, and more specifically, the game’s Firefight co-op mode is playable, there’s something to discuss. Unfortunately, my Internet connection for the time being can’t even steam YouTube videos, much less play any form of a game online.

But yeah, Firefight mode. As far as I can remember, no one I’ve talked to has had anything bad to say about it — in fact, it seems to be the main selling point for ODST for many of you. Alright, my little spiel is over; go hit the jump for tonight’s FNF hosts.

Quick guide to FNF for new players: Each week, a bunch of Destructoid readers and usually an editor or two get together to play some videogames online. Fun times!

The planning for FNF takes place in the forums, where Dtoiders 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 which you are currently reading.

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 plz” message will be fine.

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.
