Friday Night Fights: Shmup edition

As you all (hopefully) know, Ikaruga launched on Live Arcade this week. As such, we will be rockin’ it co-op style for Friday Night Fights, so make sure you pair up with a buddy. Can you handle the heat? If not, no worries.

I apologize for a lack of front page FNF posts these last couple of weeks, but I’ve got a semi-good excuse: long vacation was long. No communication with the Internet world is good for relaxation, but bad for consistency.

PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii owners: prepare yourself for a night of solid gaming. Xbox 360 players: we’re a tad bit short on hosts this week, so if you’re up to it, let me know in the comments and I’ll update the post accordingly.

How to meet up with Dtoiders for Super Smash Bros. Brawl:

The IRC way: head on over to this Web site (or start up your own IRC client) and type “/join #dtoid-brawl” without the quotation marks.

The Ventrilo way: download and install Vent. Then use the following info to log onto Dtoid’s server:

• Port: 3790
• Password: None

Once you’re in, you’ll need to use the password “ftw” to access the Social Lounge.

The 360 way: use your Xbox 360 to chat with people on your friends list. Steam or IM are good alternatives too.
