Friday Night Fights: Comic-Con 08 edition

Has anyone been to Comic-Con 08 yet? I’d be there right now obsessing over the latest games, movies, and toys, if only there wasn’t that whole “being broke” thing.

I guess I’ll have to settle with reading up on the announcements that come out of the convention and possibly playing some videogames with my Dtoid brethren. Things could be far worse.

Besides needing a few good Xbox 360 hosts, we should be all set for this week’s Friday Night Fights. Will you step up to the challenge?

Hosts and time listings can be found after the break.

Mini-guide for meeting up with Dtoiders for Super Smash Bros. Brawl or Mario Kart:

The IRC way: head on over to this Web site (or start up your own IRC client) and type “/join #destructoid” without the quotation marks.

The Ventrilo way: download and install Vent. Then use the following info to log onto Dtoid’s server:

• Port: 3790
• Password: None

Once you’re in, you’ll need to use the password “ftw” to access the Social Lounge.

The Xbox 360 way: use Xbox LIVE to chat with people on your friends list. Steam or an IM client will work fine too.
