This weekend on Dtoid TV: Offensive Combat with U4ia

5:30 PM on 09.07.2012 // Rick KingFoom Olson

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
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.]

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.]

[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.]

Being an asshole, watching this Star Citizen debacle unfold and seeing Cloud Imperium's meltdown about the whole ordeal is incredibly entertaining. Even if the allegations ARE false, CI's official statement comes off as wonderfully bitter and petty.

I’m Rares-Codrin Stanciu, the developer of Jet Overload, a fast-paced endless flying game which keeps you alert all the time by challenging the player to give the best of his flying skills in an entertaining and complex environment. In other words

Alright. Playing off of the Avatar question, why did you choose your username?

I tried playing Deadly Premonition on Steam from my backlog today and it's a GODAWFUL pc port. I bought it forever ago but I requested a refund. If anything I don't want it in my library....

If you ever dipped a cookie in your coffee, I promise you're doing it right.

Why did you pick your avatar? What about you does it represent?

Why is it that Sundays always feel so lazy? I always tell myself I'm going to get things done and then...well....

So, I plan on using my GameStop Power-Up Rewards points (yes) to buy all the eventual P4DAN DLC. Even though the practices are very suspect. I am so not made of stone. Moreso blubber and Dr. Pepper.

Having a puppy and trying to play legend of grimrock 2 somewhere the puppy normally doesn't get to hang out is a futile effort.

Shafts of light emanated from Robo Panda Z's eyes, illuminating the intricately engraved obelisks looming impossibly above him. A whispered voice spoke from the obelisk. Do you pay too much for your Internet? Comcast. Like you have a choice.

I miss Kill la Kill - I think mostly because it was so damn entertaining to have a bunch of people drawling, "Nuuuuuuuuudiiiiiiiist Beeeeeeeeeeeaaaach" at each other.
