This weekend on Dtoid.TV: 56 non-stop hours for charity!!

4:30 PM on 05.06.2012 // Bill Zoeker

When Destructoid turned six years old, our benevolent Lord Niero wanted to lead the company, and the community, into even more charitable endeavors than ever before. What El Jefe unveiled was a campaign to send Destructoid staff to Costa Rica, putting their keyboard-caressing hands to the mortar building houses with Habitat for Humanity. At the time of writing this, Destructoid's fund sits at a total $1,720 in donations. We hope to reach our goal of $6,000 by the end of this weekend, but we're offering something in return for your donations.

This weekend on Destructoid TV, we are bringing a solid block of livestream entertainment, 56 hours long! All of our regularly scheduled shows are on as usual, with Dtoid broadcasters from all over the week pitching in with shows all day and night for the sake of this worthy cause. We're going to have giveaways for donators throughout the weekend. In addition, the broadcasters will have their own milestones to perform when donation goals are met. Expect embarrassment to the highest degree. Read the full schedule below.

[All times are Pacific]


4p.m. - 8p.m.

King Foom is kicking off this titanic marathon with Mash Tactics. Foom is keeping his plans for the show a mystery, but you can be sure it will kick things off with a bang!

8p.m. - 11p.m.

Substituted Reality is Destructoid's only PC exclusive gaming show, hosted by lovably offbeat caster, Awdamn, and airing every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 8p.m. Tonight, Awdamn stretching his demon tentacles in The Darkness II. Saturday is going to be another bacon-hording round of Super Monday Night Combat. Sunday night, Awdamn is closing out the marathon with some Batman: Arkham City.

This week, the guys are joined by the fine people at Ronimo Games to play their new title, Awesomenauts.

Noon - 4p.m.

Hang out with Destructoid Contributors Brett Zeidler and Caitlin Cooke every Saturday at 12p.m. Pacific as they play through entire games with a focus on co-op. It’s a safe bet that Cait is probably going to get mad at Brett for everything at some point. This week, Cait returns to attempt some teamwork with Brett in Super Monday Night Combat. Who gets to use the Mr. Destructoid character? Tune in to find out!

4p.m. - 8p.m.

Chill with Phil airs this and every Saturday at 4p.m. Pacific. For this event, Phil is opting for a traditional A.D.D. format, in which the viewers choose what he plays. If the crowd wants him to continue his Resident Evil series playthrough by starting RE: 4, so be it!

4p.m. - 6p.m. 

Super Fantastic Videogame Rad Show: Get There! starring Johnny Luchador and Bill Zoeker airs every Sunday at 4p.m. Pacific. Rad Show takes a light-hearted approach to gaming, with the guys usually focusing more on breaking games for ridiculous results than completing feats of skill. Rad Show is crashing Pandora in Borderlands this week.

6p.m. - 8p.m. 

Retroactive centers around the games of yesteryear. Every Sunday at 6p.m. Pacific, and Monday at 8p.m. Pacific, its host, Crux adventures through nostalgic games on the consoles of his childhood. Sunday night, Crux is whipping the crap out of Dracula in Super Castlevania IV for the SNES. Monday night will be that uncanny novelty, Knuckles in Sonic 2.

8p.m. - ??? - Awdamn is capping off this amazing marathon with some Batman: Arkham City. Substituted Realty is the last show of the weekend, which means the marathon ends whenever Awdamn says so. See how long you can keep him up with donations!

What the hell is Sega using in the printing of their PS3 game manuals? I wouldn't be surprised if some dumb kid stuck one in a plastic bag and started huffing the fumes to get high.

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!

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.

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.
