Friday Night Fights: The neverending game

So uh, with being required to put something before the break and all, what should I talk about this time? Red Dead Redemption, again? Okay, if you say so!

I only recently got around to wrapping up the story myself, and then quickly realized I’d much rather pretend the ending didn’t happen — thank goodness for multiple save files. This way, I get to continue on my crazy bear-slaying adventures forever.

Let’s open this up to the rest of y’all. What’s the funniest/most interesting moment you’ve experienced in Red Dead? Mine would have to be the time I saw a black dot way up in the sky. Upon further inspection, I realized it was a man plummeting toward the Earth. Toward me.

Poor guy died before he even hit the ground. Not from fear, oh no. From bullets. I shot him … multiple times.

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.
