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]

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 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!

The night brims with defiled scum, and is permeated by their rotten stench. Just think, now you're all set to hunt and kill to your heart's content! #FashionBorne [img][/img]

Two more days to get in on the unofficial Christmas Card! [Url][/URL]
Solar Pony Django avatarSolar Pony Django has got a mystery sale on T Shirts and Tank Tops atm, $5 for each. Only catch is they're random. But I've had some good luck, got a Captain Falcon one before, Zombies ate my Neighbors and a Persona 4 X Earthbound crossover.

I would really, really love if "publish now" could work without me having to post a blog multiple because the site is such a mess right now.

I got it all the way back in spring, but I still haven't finished Majoras Mask. Think I've done the first temple.. It's hard not knowing where to go. All those linear corridors and objective markers in games has made me dumb and impatient.

A weekend open forum posted every Friday night would be really cool, at least until we get real forums again.

Went snowboarding for the first time in years. Crashed a lot, many times into trees. All that training in FF7 didnt do squat!

If I were to get Age of Empires II HD to play with you all, do you all have the DLC?

I am relieved to know Creed is a Rocky spin-off and not a feature-length documentary about the band.

Been playing Gears of War 3's campaign on Xbox One. Looks great on there, and Sam's voice actor is Chloe's voice actor in Uncharted 2/3. Hell yeah!

Community Question: With all the controversy surrounding review scores, what do you personally consider a "bad" score versus a "good" score? Is there a game in particular that was panned by critics that you nevertheless enjoyed? Or vice versa?

Finally got around to playing Diablo 3 with some friends, holy smokes! That game is rad!

Public service announcement: Marry an orphan. It makes the holidays so much easier when you don't have to deal with pain in the ass in-laws.

So... how long is it until we get the inevitable Colonial Marines or Ride to Hell: Retribution PS4/Xbox One re-releases?

Fallout 4 wouldn't be Fallout with ridiculous glitches and shenanigans. Here are a few I've run into - [youtube][/youtube]

I've never earnestly went drinking before so it's cool to know I'm the slow, sleepy, impaired type.
