Friday Night Fights: Super Mario Galaxy 2

Recommended Videos

Since nothing of huge interest came out this week multiplayer-wise and I’m probably not allowed to post pictures of Batman wrestling sharks — even though all the cool kids are doing it — what is there to talk about?

Well, Mr. UPS man just delivered Super Mario Galaxy 2. I have somehow managed to avoid hearing about it so far (excluding how stellar it is), and that almost never happens when you spend every waking hour discussing and learning insignificant factoids about every game ever.

Not that I don’t love you all, but I’m about to dim the lights, turn on the fireplace, and spend my evening with a certain mustachioed plumber. And yeah, I really did need to use that picture.

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.
