Friday Night Fights: Grand Theft Auto IV edition

The Internet has been ablaze with Grand Theft Auto IV “news” this week, and it’s driving me absolutely insane. Sure, it was nice hearing tidbits about the game before it was released, but can everyone shut up about it already and just play the damn game?

If any of you share my frustration, I urge you to jump online tonight with the Friday Night Fights crew for some good old-fashioned simulated bloodshed to release all of that stress you’ve built up during this week.

Oh, and for those of you who can’t remember when FNF kicks off, it generally starts at around 10:00 p.m. EST, although it varies for some games (check after the break for more specific times).
