Friday Night Fights: Perfect Dark edition

If one of you kind gents could whip up a potion that would give me false memories of summers spent with Perfect Dark and my trusty N64 controller, I would be eternally grateful. As it stands, I’m stuck sitting on the sidelines as everyone gets all hot and bothered by the Xbox LIVE Arcade re-release of the game.

I want to get into Perfect Dark in 2010 — really, I do — but it’s realistically not going to happen. On the bright side, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 continues to be a hopeless addiction of mine, as I attempt to max out weapons and classes with glorious, ultimately meaningless experience points.

It’s Friday, so why not take a break from God of War 3 and Final Fantasy XIII for a few hours to hang out with your loving Destructoid community?

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.
