Dtoid TV Weekend: PAX East absence support group

12:00 PM on 03.23.2013 // Conrad Zimmerman

Check out our full schedule of live content!

PAX East is happening this weekend and we're all soooo thrilled that everybody's having such a wonderful time in Boston. That's just peachy for them. Some of us are stuck in our normal lives, trudging through our pitiful existences while they frolic. If you're one of those trapped at home this weekend, you don't have to be alone in this difficult time. Come hang out with us on Dtoid TV and share your pain with others who know what it means to be away from the promised land.

People like Jordan Devore and myself, as we kick off the weekend celebrating the announcement of new HD remakes from Capcom with one of their prior re-releases, Magic Sword. Andy Schatz of Pocketwatch Games will be sitting down with Jonathan Holmes on Sup, Holmes? to talk about Monaco: What's Yours is Mine. And lunatic-in-residence Johnny Luchador will be making magic happen with Harry Potter Kinect.

Check out our full schedule for the weekend:

All times are Pacific

10am - Saturday Morning Hangover
The gang ascends a mighty tower of classic arcade gaming with Magic Sword. And, as ever, Xbox Indie demos and a visit to Dafoeverse.

[Ease the pain from the night before with a little schadenfreude brought to you by Destructoid's Conrad Zimmerman, Jordan Devore and the lovely Katrina.]
12pm - Weekend Escape
Cait's busy at PAX, so we think Brett's going solo. Of course, since he never bothers to inform us what he's doing, your guess is as good as ours.

[Hang out with Destructoid Contributors Brett Zeidler and Caitlin Cooke as they play through entire games with a focus on co-op. It's a safe bet that Caitlin is probably going to get mad at Brett for everything at some point.]
8pm - Substituted Reality
Kill off your Saturday, and possibly a few brain cells, while AwDamn gets his social on. Tonight, it's survival of the fittest in Natural Selection 2.

[Destructoid's only PC-exclusive gaming show, Substituted Reality showcases a wide variety of games with a particular focus on first-person shooters. Hosted by the lovely, off-beat, AwDamn.]


1pm - Sup, Holmes?
Come hang out and join in on the conversation as Jonathan Holmes interviews amazing people from all sides of the gaming industry. This week, he will be joined by Andy Schatz, designer of Monaco: What's Yours is Mine.

[Join Destructoid's most lovable Associate Editor, Jonathan Holmes, for interviews with his friends in the game industry. Participate in the live chat and get your questions answered]


6pm - Rad Show: Get There!
Wonder and mystery will abound as the Rad Show gang takes wand in hand for Harry Potter Kinect.

[Starring Johnny Luchador, Super Fantastic Videogame Rad Show: Get There! takes a lighthearted approach to gaming, with the guys usually focusing more on breaking games for ridiculous results than accomplishing feats of skill.]
8pm - Substituted Reality
Awdamn will help you finish your weekend off right as he plays another of those newfangled digital entertainments.

[Destructoid's only PC-exclusive gaming show, Substituted Reality showcases a wide variety of games with a particular focus on first-person shooters. Hosted by the lovely, off-beat, AwDamn.]

Been playing MGO obsessively, still can't find anyone in their right mind that uses the Hush Puppy. So of course I'm gonna be the dumb bastard that tries.

Why don't we have more games that use filtered 3D models to creat faux-pixel art? It's such a cool, smooth style, but you never see any games using it.

Oh lawd. Next Saturday, Gamestop will have three hour access to Tri-Force Heroes. Nintendo, really wish we could just get normal demos from you more often, please!

I made this. Want one? [IMG]HTTPS://[/IMG]

Star Wars Battlefront is pretty good. Except the beta is basically a demo with nothing in it so that upsets me. but it's still pretty good.

Just cleaning up the last of Gotham's Most Wanted before I finish Arkham Knight. Those Riddler trophies...much more fun than Arkham City but my word, stop it Rocksteady. Love the game though, outstanding. In my top 5 this year, fo sho.

Looks like my copy of Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash won't be here till Tuesday. What do I pay for Amazon Prime for again? I think I might have to stream me playing it.

I have just heard someone say Uncharted was a "role playing game."

The glitched walking animation people carrying crates in Novigrad do is hilarious.

Undecided what to do with my weekend now my fiancée is away. One part of me says I should work my ass off, another says I should go watch The Martian while the last part tells me to be a slob, play games and masturbate to Highschool DXD.. Such a hard lif

The 1.10 patch for The Witcher 3 is out. Downloading for PS4. Pretty excited to see the changes, especially since it said the damn swamps in Velen would finally see performance enhancements, along with like a million other areas. So good! Yes?

Just got confirmation that a feature I spent way too long writing is going up on Sunday. Not a bad way to start the weekend off, though I wish I had a slot on a weekday.

PB&J sandwiches. Saturday morning cartoons. A blanket. Ominous sounds coming from the next room. Blood seeping from the walls. A dark figure standing in the corner, staring, watching. Darkness, everywhere. Such darkness. This is childhood.

Dear Namco, give me a proper localizer Super Robot Wars title. I need it in my viens, especially this

Spiel was mightily expensive. Holy shit... Good thing I didn't bring more money with me, too. Saw enough stuff I'd love to own.

Trialling PS Now - review to come later - has reminded me of a piece of little-reported PS3 news. Owners of hacked PS3s could turn any PS2 game into a 'Classics' title and run them on a bog-standard PS3 with few issues.
