Friday Night Fights: Rock Band 2 edition

With a flagship title like Rock Band 2 debuting on Xbox 360 this week, in addition to Criterion Games releasing the bike update for Burnout Paradise, you know tonight is going to be something special in Friday Night Fights land.

For those of you wanting to partake in the plastic instrument-fueled bliss that is Rock Band 2, please post a comment with the following: A) your gamertag B) your instrument of choice C) your play style for tonight (serious or fun/relaxed) and D) what difficulty level you play at comfortably (hard, expert, etc.).

By following the guidelines above, everyone should be able to form groups without running into too much trouble. Remember, the key word here is “should.”

If you’re not up to rocking out with your c*ck out, there are plenty of alternative games being hosted tonight; look for the time listings after the jump.
