Welcome to the weekly Friday Night Fights planning thread. If you aren't familiar with Friday Night Fights, it's a Destructoid community event where members get together online each Friday to play games. This is where we make up the schedule. The final list will appear on the the PS3 FNF community blog and Destructoid front page on Friday. There is no approval process for players or hosts and everyone is welcome. If you want in, just read the instructions below and drop your info.

• Leave a message here with your PSN name and which games from the schedule you want to play. More people will play if other people are playing, so speak up.
• Send a PSN friend request to the person hosting the game which includes a message with your Dtoid name. If you leave out who you are on the site, they might think you're just a random friend request and ignore you.
To host: • If you want your game listed on the schedule, we need the game, the time, and your PSN ID. We need the specific game, not an abbreviation that applies to more than one; a start time, even if you're playing "all night"; and we need your PSN ID even if you think we know it already. If there is anything else, like lobby names, DLC requirements, or passwords, note that as well.
• Don't worry about hosting the same game or hosting a game at the same time as someone else. Instead, think of it like a movie theater; more than one game can run at the same time.
• Make sure you have at least an hour to play. That's only two or three matches of the average shooter and those go by pretty quick.
• Check the comments, both here and on the blog when it goes up on Friday, to see if someone has said they'll play. You might have missed their PSN message or your friend list might be full.
Game: Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition
PSN: knackered If you have PS+ you can download this game for free! (It's an 18gig download, so you'll probably want to start this before Friday -Trev)
Game: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
PSN: KimikoLoco Swears are go.
Game: Dark Souls
PSN: NeoShinGundam I have an NG+ character at SL350 plus two NG characters at SL31 & SL47. Since Dark Souls doesn't support lobby-making we should coordinate here on Dtoid ahead of time.
Ouch, that's pretty late for Warhammer, but I'm interested. In the mean time:
Game: Dark Souls
Time: 11:00pm EST

Dark Souls is a tough one. You almost need to get a group to start new characters at the same time. That's what Cornflake, Clockwork, and I did. I can tell you already that I don't have anything in range for those. We usually put it down as a sort of rally point for other people that want to play, even if they can't join us.
I might shuffle 40K a little earlier as well. We'll see.
We also got Rochard but no one really cares about that.
I'll host a group play of SF4 then since Cornflake might play. Epic, what FNF Skype group? Anyway if the time isn't good for you let me know what is and we'll move it.
Game: Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition (Welcome PS+ newbies!)
Time: 7pm PST / 10pm EST
I suggested to Andy about it for people on PS3/PC so we can have group communications and the like while playing SEPERATE GAMES.
Just a way to organize the groups of ppl playing different titles, and in the case of disconnects, we can be in the group trying to re-organize everything.
If the fucking thing actually downloads. It's apparently 18 gigs. 18 FUCKING GIGS what the hell is in this game? The mathematical equation Big Thought came up with providing the answer to the question about the meaning of life?
I downloaded the DUST 514 beta a couple months ago, so after that finished downloading and installing, only like 3 gigs, I load it up, says it needs an update. Cool. I can deal with an update. I just wanted to see what they changed from playing it BEFORE ALL YOU SQUARES MUAHAHAH (CCP had an internal tournament. Needless to say my team won)
Update is 4 gigs.
Fucking PS Store. Can't have the games including their updates on the fucking store. I swear I just downloaded a new client, instead of just a patch. There is no way that it was just an update. Or CCP doesn't understand how the PS Store works.
