Can you invite a friend into a match or are you stuck with whatever jerkoff they match you with?
Just booted it again, and as far as I can tell you're pretty limited. You can do a quick match, selecting 1on1, Teams of 2, and Teams of 3. Or you can do a custom match, which lists the available games, who made them, and how many players there are.
I suppose you can host a game and tell your friend to look for your name in the list...
By the way, my first impressions were based on me knowing that my boss was on his way to drop something off in about 10 minutes, and having just that amount of time to get started and play a round. Hopefully the retail game will have better online capabilities, but as it stands it's not a good reflection of how I feel the final game will play. Unless something drastically changes, or IGN and GameSpot both give it 2/10, I'm still picking it up.
