Dtoid TV Weekend: Sweet with Syrup

12:00 PM on 06.01.2013 // Conrad Zimmerman
  @ConradZimmerman

Check out our full schedule of live content!

This weekend on Dtoid TV, we're going to be playing a whole lot of games and I do hope you'll watch us play them. I'm going to kick things off on the channel by playing a little Steambot Chronicles right now. Phil will be continuing his run of the entire Dead Rising series, shenanigans are likely to ensue when Johnny Luchador returns to The Sims 3, and Holmes will be interviewing the creative geniuses behind Guacamelee.

But if you have some time this weekend during one of the gaps between our shows (because, really, who would skip one of those?), I'd highly recommend you watch a movie called Syrup. It's based on the novel of same name by Max Barry (one of my favorites) and, while it isn't quite the same story on the silver screen, the message rings just as true: Marketing is everything and everything is marketing. It's available on-demand through Amazon ahead of its theatrical release next week.

Check out our full schedule for the weekend:

All times are Pacific

SATURDAY
 
10am - Saturday Morning Hangover
Conrad's all by his lonesome, so he's dispensing with the formalities and just playing Steambot Chronicles.

12pm - Weekend Escape
Superhero hijinks will abound with Marvel: Ultimate Alliance

[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.]
4pm - Chill with Phil
An unstoppable juggernaut of zombie carnage, Phil will breeze through Dead Rising: Case Zero before launching into Dead Rising 2.

[Philanthr0py hosts this relaxed show in which he performs full game (and series) playthroughs.]

AwDamn will perform the only acceptable form of drinking and driving with Need 4 Speed: Most Wanted

4pm - Rad Show: Get There!
The mighty Boglin King rains whatever it is a Boglin King rains upon the unsuspecting world of The Sims 3.

[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 returns to finish what he started in Call of Duty 2

Back in tip-top shape guys, feel waaaaay better than I have done these past few weeks. Plus my voice sounds slightly raspy now, meaning my Batman impression has been upgraded. Apologies to Gaj and Solar the most, my male-up kisses go to you: Xxxxxx

Wait... Is that...? Could it be...? It IS! Gravity Rush's Kat has taken a break from rushing and graviting to sacrifice some souls in Soul Sacrifice Delta! Which isn't even going for $8 on the PS Store right now! What a steal!

Unpopular opinion time: I not only consider Kanye West to be one of my favorite rappers of all-time — yes, I'm being serious — but he's one of the very few people in the world whom I'd consider to be a role model. I truly wish he would notice me one d

Trying to play through Undertale's Genocide Route. After forcing myself to kill the Greater Dog, I'm really not sure if I'm emotionally capable of handling this game anymore...

"I would buy [game] if I had a Wii U." THEN WHY DON'T YOU!? "I don't want to." So you want to play [game] but you're not willing to buy hardware to play it? "Yes." Guess you don't really want to play [game]. "No, Nintendo should make games for Xbox." ಠ_
