Dtoid TV Weekend: Sweet with Syrup

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

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 - 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.]
