Friday Night Fights: Welcome back

Friday Night Fights is back! Well, it never left as the community kept it going strong. This feature which rounds-up what you awesome folks always do is all that’s back. This is your chance to play with other Dtoiders in a butt-load of online multiplayer games. Yes, being social in a videogame IS a weird concept. Better than playing against random racist assholes though, right?

As always, the community has arranged a number of games to be played on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Check out the list below to see what’s on offer tonight!

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.

When asked what their FNF plans were a chorus of laughter ensued, followed by a “just write Team Fortress 2 Beta or something. If you are interested you can ask them over in the Steam chat.
