Friday Night Fights: Peace Walker

Recommended Videos

With the combined madness of Destructoid HQ on the road for E3, Nick and Dale putting the final touches on an assortment of embargoed previews you’ll get to see early next week, and everyone else off doing their own thing, I’ll keep this short.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is rad. I say this both as someone who has played a whopping ten minutes of the series before and has a passionate hatred of the PlayStation Portable’s nub. What can I say, it is an aggravating piece of plastic that does not function well with my hands.

Anyway, if you have a PSP, consider downloading the demo. It doesn’t get into what I find to be the coolest aspect of Peace Walker — the “Mother Base” mechanic — but it does feature one of the funniest tutorials in recent memory. If nothing else, look for Jonathan Holmes’ review soon.

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.
