Friday Night Fights: Battlefield 1943? edition

Friday Night Fights is a weekly gathering of Dtoiders to just play games with one another.

No holidays, no vacations, just a bunch of dudes playing videogames over the Internet. Feels good to be back in the swing of things, doesn’t it?

Assuming that the recently released Battlefield 1943 wants to cooperate with those of us on an Xbox 360, I will be playing plenty of that this evening. My gamertag is warchiefgrim, so if the thought of seeing me crash planes into everything excites you, attempt to jump in my game.

Oh, and don’t forget: We still have a computer more powerful than robots, dinosaurs, and even robot dinosaurs to give away. Go on, take it from us while you still can!

Quick guide to Friday Night Fights for fresh meat: 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 dropping their information (gamertag, time, 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 pay attention to the forums (the scallywags) go up in the community blogs section, thanks to a dedicated bunch of cool folks. And then for those who are too lazy to read the c-blogs, they have got my weekly recap posts which bring all of the FNF-related details into one unified place.

From there, all you need to do is shoot a quick message over to one of the hosts listed below asking for an invite, or simply force your way into the room. Whatever works! The names on the left are our Destructoid user names, and the names on the right are our Gamertags/PSN IDs/Friend Codes/etc.

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.
