This weekend on Dtoid TV: Offensive Combat with U4ia

5:30 PM on 09.07.2012 // Rick KingFoom Olson
  @KingFoom

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!

[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.]

Every time I hear "I don't understand why people like _____ game", I get annoyed. Of course you understand, if you've listened to what those people were saying. You just don't agree, and that's A-OK. I HATE Twilight, but I understand why people like it.

Just tried playing the first Bayonetta game... it was really bad. Honestly I don't understand why Platinum games are so well regarded. None of them are really worthwhile.

The first person I block is the person who talks shit about Platinum

Finally, a blog that I can call my own, I feel accomplished somehow.

Gonna be honest; this really made my day.

I doubt I'll use it much but I'm totally fine with a block/ignore feature. Everyone has a right to speak, but I don't think anyone has a right to be heard. If this place played country music I'd want a mute button, basically :p.

Mall haul today (plus I split a BEAUTIFUL Star Wars Slave I with my brother). Any thoughts on Haze? Wanted to play it back when it came out and I had no PS3. For a dollar you can't go wrong!
Dreamweaver avatarDreamweaver
I'm not gonna lie, I don't feel "good" about the upcoming "ignore" feature. Maybe it's just me, but I don't like the idea that people can mute other people because they don't agree with them. Spammers and trolls, sure, but not regular community members.

Oh man. Those Next Gen transformations in Megadimension Neptunia are legit as fuck!

The first thing I do when I see clickbait is click on it and complain about clickbait.

Wow, uh, after having a lovely time with Kirby Air Ride, I decided to try playing some melee, for old times sake... I pretty much disliked my whole time with it. More details in a comment if I get around to it.

The backend code on the site so fun to read. Going through some of Julio's old stuff: if($vars["fappers"]){ $fappoids = 0; $_xt_loop_name = "fappers"; $vars["fappers_cnt"] = count($vars["fappers"]); reset($vars["fappers"]);

Got out of Deadpool. It definitely was a movie with Deadpool in it. Some parents were shocked to learn it was also rated R for a reason.

So... gender and biology. All I'll say here is please respect people and their identities and don't try to push assumptions as fact. It doesn't need to be said to most here but denying people their identities is pretty harmful and very unpleasant.
