Friday Night Fights: Castlevania HD

Recommended Videos

Yeah, Castlevania: Harmony of Despair is deeply flawed — and yet, I cannot stop playing it. Conrad, and a good chunk of people on my friends list, would probably say the exact same thing.

Six-person runs are clearly where the fun is at, so hopefully everyone can experience the magic that is kicking absurd amounts of ass only to have your team turn into skeletons at the boss fight. PROTIP: dying as a skeleton does actually have a negative side effect; your timer runs down with each death.

I can’t blame you for not realizing that bit of crucial information, though — Castlevania HD isn’t particularly interested in telling you what the hell is going on. Also, have you guys heard about the secret items yet?

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.
