Friday Night Fights: ‘Money is dumb’

Recommended Videos

That’s a direct quote from Hamza. With the massive Steam sale still carrying on, I imagine most of us will be playing PC games this weekend. I would have bought more than just Osmos, but many of the better deals were for titles I already own in some capacity.

Surprisingly — to me, anyway — it seems like there’s something of a following for Realtime Worlds’ MMOG APB. If you’ll allow me to be a jerk for a second, it looks rather sketchy. But hey, if people are able to extract some fun out of the game, more power to them.

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.
