Friday Night Fights: Summer drought edition

If only good games could be released throughout the entire year, rather than being bunched together during the November/December rush to get stuff out the door in time for Christmas.

For starters, we wouldn’t have to skip out on certain games in place for others as a result of a tight budget, and we’d also have something new to play during the dreaded summer period that’s home to shovelware and movie tie-ins.

Seeing as how that’s probably never going to happen, it looks like we’re stuck with the same old, same old for Friday Night Fights. Hit the jump for the host listings.

Mini-guide for meeting up with Dtoiders for Super Smash Bros. Brawl or Mario Kart Wii:

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:

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 will work fine too.

    There’s been a whole lot of Internet drama surrounding certain community members and this game, so from here on out, I will unfortunately no longer be promoting any servers.

    If you own a TF2 server and would like to get the word out, please feel free to do so by making a comment on this post or by creating a community blog. I’m sorry if you are affected by this new ruling and weren’t responsible for causing it, but that’s just the way it’s going to be.
