Friday Night Fights: GDC edition


As such, this is the quickest and most thrown-together Friday Nights Fights post I’ve done yet! We hope you have been enjoying the news and video features that have come out of GDC. Personally, I’m very excited for the new Super Mario game on the 3DS. I’m a Nintendo fanboy by trade, so any first party Nintendo offering gets me all excited.

Our partnership with Machinima has also brought about great video features, with our own Hamza Aziz and Tara Long helping co-host Inside Gaming, and Adam Kovic co-hosting the Destructoid show. Yay to one big happy family!

Well, while I continue to nurse my fatigue (read: hangover), the Destructoid community hasn’t missed a beat and have lots of games planned for this week’s Friday Night Fights! Read below for a list of community hosts and the games they will be playing!

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.
