Friday Night Fights: Metal Gear Online beta edition

Who would’ve guessed it — the Metal Gear Online beta went live just in time for Friday Night Fights. Talk about timing! I’m excited about it and I don’t even own a freakin’ PlayStation 3.

For those of you who do own a PS3 (and have access to the MGO beta), however, we’ve got big plans for you tonight. To fully prepare yourselves, I suggest y’all hit up the game ID thread in the forums, then make sure to read the instructions for joining the Dtoid match after the break.

As for the rest of us unlucky bastards, there’ll still be the usual Friday Night Fights shenanigans that we’ve come to know and love.

[Thanks, Toneman, power-glove, Y0j1mbo, vexed alex, bunnyrabbit2, WTF Joel, and the rest of you beautiful people.]

Mini-guide for meeting up with Dtoiders for Super Smash Bros. Brawl:

The IRC way: head on over to this Web site (or start up your own IRC client) and type “/join #dtoid-brawl” without the quotation marks.

The Ventrilo way: download and install Vent. Then use the following info to log onto Dtoid’s server:

• Port: 3790
• Password: None

Once you’re in, you’ll need to use the password “ftw” to access the Social Lounge.

The 360 way: use your Xbox 360 to chat with people on your friends list. Steam or IM are good alternatives too.
