Friday Night Fights: IT’S MAHVEL BABY!

So, the game of my forever came out this week. I have been waiting for Marvel vs Capcom 3 for so many years. My whole high school experience was basically defined by living at the local arcade and devouring everything there was to learn about Marvel vs Capcom 2, so its great to feel like my old self, figuring out new assists and combos in this iteration. This game is so pringles.

It is also a special weekend because DtoidEurope is having their EuroNARP 3.5! So if you see those guys online playing games later today or throughout the weekend, I’m sure they’d love a game invite!

This week for Friday Night Fights, the 360 and PS3 crews will be playing Marvel vs Capcom 3, so make sure to join in! And if you haven’t picked up the game yet, there are many other games to get involved with. So check below for a full list of this week’s games and community hosts!

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.
