Wow, it's been one hell of a week over at Dtoid.TV so far, and we're just getting started! We'll be kicking off the weekend festivities tonight on Mash Tactics as we jump into the closed beta for Offensive Combat. Not only will we be showcasing this amazingly fun, free to play, FPS, we'll also be chatting with a few of the wonderful peeps from U4ia via Skype. Oh, and, did I mention that we have 100+ beta keys to give away during the show? Come by tonight, grab a key, and join in on the action!

We have a ton of awesome content lined up for the rest of the weekend as well. So many broadcasters, so many games, so many shenanigans. Do yourself a favor, scroll this page down just a bit, and read up on everything that's going on. 

Check out our full schedule for the weekend:

All times are Pacific
FRIDAY
 
4pm - Mash Tactics
Come by, grab one of the 100+ beta keys we're giving away for Offensive Combat, fire up your web browser, then jump in for a few rounds with myself and the U4ia team!

[Each weekday, join King Foom for an interactive journey of laughter and gaming as he plays titles new, old and downright weird in our flagship variety show. Themed episodes every day, including multiplayer viewer participation, in this community-focused program]
8pm - Substituted Reality
Kick off your shoes, grab a tasty beverage, and get ready to social the night away with AwDamn as he keeps the Offensive Combat rolling ... and maybe plays some other stuff too!

[Destructoid's only PC-exclusive gaming show, Substituted Reality showcases a wide variety of games with a particular focus on first-person shooters. Hosted by the lovely, off-beat, AwDamn.]

SATURDAY
 
10am - Saturday Morning Hangover
Get your coffee, shake off the Friday blur, and hang out with Conrad, Jordan, and Katina as they explore the "wonderful" world of Xbox Live Indie Games.

[Ease the pain from the night before with a little schadenfreude as Destructoid's Conrad Zimmerman, Jordan Devore and the lovely Katrina play the week's Xbox Live Indie Games demos and beg for death's sweet embrace.]
12pm - Weekend Escape
To quote Brett ... "I have no idea what we're playing, but we're playing something." There you have it folks.

[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
Phil is on hiatus this week as he tries to get into his new apartment in San Francisco. We're crossing our fingers that all goes well, and we see his lovely bearded face back next week.

[Philanth0py hosts this relaxed show in which he performs full game (and series) playthroughs.]
8pm - Substituted Reality
It's time again for AwDamn's usual Saturday co-op shenanigans.  This week the plan is to jump into the last day of the War Of The Roses closed beta. Join in!

[Destructoid's only PC-exclusive gaming show, Substituted Reality showcases a wide variety of games with a particular focus on first-person shooters. Hosted by the lovely, off-beat, AwDamn.]

4pm - Rad Show: Get There!
Join Johnny Luchador this afternoon, as he continues his adventures through the exciting land of DOS gaming. Oregon Trail is on the list, as are various other games. Get there!

[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.]
6pm - Retroactive
Crux is going through a bit of a reformat, and tonight is a good example of whats to come. Hang out this evening, and share the frustration as he dives into the brutal world of Dark Souls

[Retroactive centers around the games of yesteryear. Your host Crux adventures through nostalgic games on the consoles of his childhood.]
8pm - Substituted Reality

Humble Bundle End of Summer Sale! Get a free Stealth Inc. 2 maybe? I dunno. Just signal boosting for no particular reason. Maybe 'cause I got a free game? Least I could do. https://www.humblebundle.com/store

I gotta to admit: it feels nice to be able to play a Pokemon game without thinking to myself "oh shit, I got to fill up my Pokedex". It's nice. Oh yeah, and for the record, I'm playing through Soul Silver.

I enter the Gamestop. I set a Toad plushie atop a Yoshi plushie. I set Mario to go down on Kirby. I leave the Gamestop.

Lacking recording/social features aside (I actually do love that aspect of the PS4), I've been really enjoying my Xbone. Sunset Overdrive is like Saints Row meets Tony Hawk and lovingly self-aware.

Wait, wasn't that Pokemon Detective Pikachu game supposed to come out this year?

Watching Free To Play. I kinda want to try DOTA2, though I'll be very bad at it. Its a very good story of pro-gamer culture, so far. Good Stuff.

Just tried to explain the word BEAT to an ESL student. Reference.com has 58 variations of the definition. At the least, they can finally understand that Michael Jackson was not asking people to fight each other.
