Friday Night Fights: Originality edition

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

Yes, it’s Halloween tomorrow. Scantily clad drunk girls, “fun size” candy that’s not actually fun, and so many kids ringing your doorbell that it breaks (this honestly happened to me); there’s a reason why this is my favorite time of year.

I suppose we ought to be thankful the holiday isn’t today, since there is gaming to be done. With a couple of weeks until the final big releases of the year are out, it’s going to be mostly Uncharted 2 again and possibly the Left 4 Dead 2 demo for those who have it.

Also, don’t forget to try out the meetup+play section while it still has that new page smell. You can win a $1,500 PC by adding games to your profile and sending a request to play. Do eet!

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.
