Friday Night Fights: Dead Space 2 edition

It has been a while since the last Friday Night Fights post on the front page, but we haven’t forgotten about it! I’ve now been placed in charge with bringing you all the information that you need to play games with your fellow Dtoiders. FnF’s are a long standing tradition here on Destructoid, so if you have some free time tonight, come join in the fun!

This week saw the release of the much anticipated Dead Space 2, complete with a new multiplayer mode. Because of this, both the PS3 and Xbox 360 guys have organized some time to try this mode out. If shooting necromorphs aren’t your thing, there are still many other games to join in. A full list of all the games and community hosts can be found after the jump!

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.
