Howdy, everyone. How’s this fine Friday afternoon been treating you?
Don’t answer that question, because all responses have one solution: Friday Night Fights. Member participation seems to be up tonight, which I can only assume means schedules are starting to even out for some of you guys.
Or maybe you’ve collectively decided to push your responsibilities into the far reaches of your brain where thoughts go to die. Either way, I can most certainly dig it. There’s also a bit of good news on the tournament front — if you hadn’t already noticed, the next game will be Street Fighter IV.
That’ll be starting up next Friday, so for now, consider this tease a reminder to start practicing your tiger uppercuts. As always, there will be sweet gaming loot up for grabs. Stay tuned for more (aka actual) details.
Quick guide to FNF for new players: 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 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 which you are currently reading.
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 plz” message will be fine.
