Friday Night Fights: It’s finally here! edition

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

Now when I say “it’s finally here,” I am secretly referring to two things.

Firstly, the new meetup+play  features. Niero has already explained how it all works here. Go read that! Why? Because you can win yourself a swanky gaming PC by simply trying it out. No mad gaming skillz required! While we are busy tending to our bonsai trees most days, we’re always open to suggestions/feedback.

The second is of course Borderlands, which has been out on consoles as of Tuesday.

My boy kauza wrote an excellent community blog on how its use of progression will devour your life — I agree wholeheartedly. On a more personal note, I must also commend Gearbox for the game’s netcode; my sickly Internet connection shouldn’t be able to handle online matches, but so far, so good.

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.
