Dtoid TV Weekend: Sweet with Syrup

12:00 PM on 06.01.2013 // Conrad Zimmerman

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

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.]

8pm - Substituted Reality
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

Robin secretly controls the boobs of Nintendo characters. She stole the Xenoblade boobs and took the Fatal Frame lingerie for herself. #DammitRobin [img][/img]

I was just playing Skyrim and wondered if anyone has come up with Fallout 3/New Vegas weapon mods for Skyrim? Fighting dragons with assault weapons sounds almost necessary. [img][/img]

Just bought Fallout: New Vegas. Throw me the best mods there are that AREN'T Total Conversion mods. So now Who Vegas - yet.

For an early Christmas present I got my girlfriend Wooly World to go with our new Wii U. I've gotten more joy out of how adorable all the character designs are than I'd like to admit.

Hey Dtoiders ! Steam just destroyed my wallet ! Share here what you bought in this sale !
GoofierBrute avatarGoofierBrute
And so I purchased not just Hyper Dimension Neptunia, but also its sequel and Grim Fandango Remastered in the Steam Sale, and it isn't even the end of the first day. God damnit. At least refunds are thing a now.

I'm currently writing a review for a mobile game, but only because I'm enjoying the hell out it. I'm honestly enjoying it far more than Puzzles and Dragons.

Damn, I think I'm Bruce Willis from Unbreakable. Just fell of a 12-foot ladder and all I got was a little scratch on my finger.
CoilWhine avatarCoilWhine
After I finish Fallout 4 I'm thinking of 100%ing Skyrim and then installing a TON of dinosaur mods on it.

4 hours into Hotline Miami 2 and I'm finding it just as fun as the original. So far it's a good balance between frustration and satisfaction. Still have no idea what the story is about.

1. Start playing Ocarina of Time again. 2. Start having fun. 3. Discover fishing area. 4. Stop having fun.
AvtrSpirit avatarAvtrSpirit
A 2-d hovercraft platforming exploration game just came out today. Have fun collecting the coins! My record so far is 140.

Holy shit the new David Bowie video/song is just lovely.

So many people angry at Play-Asia right now. Totally not exactly the kind of backlash Tecmo were trying to avoid by not releasing the game here in the first place.

If you're a UK kid there's a Wii U 32 GB Wind Waker Premium Pack on Amazon for £240. It says sale... I dunno how much of a saving that is. You tell me.

Community Question: Not strictly speaking video game-related, but screw it. Team Captain America or Team Iron Man?
