Friday Night Fights: Super edition

You demanded Super Street Fighter IV last week, so Super Street Fighter IV you shall receive.

I’m not really sure what it is you want from me, since I don’t even own the game. I can appreciate it from the sidelines, but can’t handle fighting games for a bunch of reasons. Mental well-being, the inability to remember even the simplest of combos, and the extreme dislike of constant failure are high on that list.

Basically, I’m the dude who always watched from afar as people played in arcades. This is enough embarrassment for one evening; find out what everyone else is playing tonight by clicking through.

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.
