Friday Night Fights: What is Hype edition

I hope you enjoyed our week long coverage of EVO! I had an amazing time in Vegas being a part of the crowd that witnessed PRBalrog’s comeback, Daigo becoming free to Poongko’s Seth, and watching Latif “the Legend Killer” eliminate the likes of Tokido, Daigo, and Poongko from the finals. To conclude our coverage, I’ll leave you with this video explaining “hype,” and showing why you can’t miss EVO next year,

Anyway, you don’t have any plans tonight do you? If not, make sure to join Destructoid in Friday Night Fights! This longstanding Dtoid tradition involves community members hosting games to play Friday evening and coming together as a community to have a great time. The list of community hosts and the games they will be playing can be found below. And if you want to host a game that’s not on the list, let everyone know in the comments below!

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 3:30 – 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.
