Friday Night Fights: Fourth of July weekend edition

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

It’s the Fourth of July weekend here in the United States so a lot of people are out of the house doing family stuff. Such a weird concept. Still, there are people playing some games tonight and you can get the lowdown of tonight’s events after the break.

Today also marks the beginning of the Friday Night Fights tournament. We’re giving away a badass computer worth $9,000. Kick some ass at Quake Live and you’ll be on your way to owning a sweet new computer. More details on the tournament here and here’s how to set up a match in Quake Live.  

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.
