This weekend on Dtoid TV: The dead walk (and investigate)

5:30 PM on 06.29.2012 // Rick KingFoom Olson
  @KingFoom

It's another packed weekend on Dtoid TV! We'll be kicking things off with a bit of "Pyromania" on Mash Tactics at 4pm Pst. Come get in on the action tonight as we fire up Team Fortress 2, and witness the carnage from the unique perspective of the pyro.  Then, come hang out with Philanthr0py on Saturday at 4pm Pst, as he jumps into the land of the dead, and starts his full run of the classic adventure game, Grim Fandango. Come enjoy the show and chat with fellow viewers, as Phil tries to help Manuel "Manny" Calavera untangle himself from a conspiracy that threatens his very salvation. 

Also in the weekend mix, we have some "classic" Bruce Willis action, some orc bashing, some good old fashioned punches to the face, and more! Tonight after Mash Tactics, AwDamn will be destroying anything green that moves in the PC title, Orcs Must Die!. Conrad and Jordan will be continuing their romp through the PlayStation game Apocalypse, bless their poor soulson Saturday Morning Hangover. 

Then closing out the week, Holmes will talk with game journalist and developer of iOS shooter Ziggurat, Tim Rogers. And Crux will be throwing all the kicks, and punches, while jamming out to the classic sounds of Streets Of Rage

Check out our full schedule for the weekend:

All times are Pacific
FRIDAY
 
4pm - Mash Tactics
Pyromania is in full effect. "Fire" up Team Fortress 2, and join in on the action, as we see things from the Pyro's unique point of view.

[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
Are you green? Somewhat dumb? Carry a spiked club? Then you have to go. Orcs Must Die, and AwDamn is just the man to make it happen.

[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
Conrad, Jordan and Katrina continue the one-liner fueled fun with Bruce Willis in the PSOne title Apocalypse.

[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
Brett and Caitlin didn't bother to tell us what they were going to play this weekend on their show. You should tease them about that.

[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 dives headfirst into the classic LucasArts adventure title Grim Fandango. Don't miss this first episode!

[Philanth0py hosts this relaxed show in which he performs full game (and series) playthroughs.]
8pm - Substituted Reality
Draw partner! Join in the action tonight, and relive high-noon duels, or intense firefights during a bank heist, while playing Lead And Gold for PC. 

[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.]

SUNDAY
 
1pm - Sup, Holmes?
Holmes will be joined by Tim Rogers, game journalist and the developer of Ziggurat, an iOS survival shooter.

[Join Destructoid's most lovable Associate Editor, Jonathan Holmes, for interviews with his friends in the game industry. Participate in the live chat and get your questions answered]

4pm - Rad Show: Get There!
Zombie apocalypse, or high fantasy, there should be something for everyone on today's show. Witness as Johnny Luchador tears through either The Walking Dead Ep.2, or the Golden Axe trilogy. 

[Starring Johnny Luchador and Bill Zoeker, 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
Come for the beatdowns, stay for the amazing soundtrack. Take a trip back to the past as Crux fights his way through a classic brawler, Streets Of Rage.

[Retroactive centers around the games of yesteryear. Your host Crux adventures through nostalgic games on the consoles of his childhood.]
8pm - Substituted Reality
Bullet time + Painkillers + AwDamn = One awesome show. Come join AwDamn as he continues his run through Max Payne 3.

[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.]

Oh neat, Hollow Knight got through the Colosseum of Fools stretch goal while no one was looking. Shame they couldn't get to three characters but the game still looks awesome.

S Rank is so satisfying. Too bad I rarely earn it!

My MGSV: The Phantom Pain playthrough has quickly devolved into a journey to fill out Big Boss' 80's synth pop collection. And I couldn't be happier.

You know what I love? Game tgat force you to connect to their servers even though you only want to play single player. Then the servers are down an the game tries for like 5 minutes, not even giving you a way to cancel the process, you just have to wait

In today's Spelunky daily challenge, I was nibbled by a bat that pushed me into a Tiki trap that landed me dead on Kali's alter. Kali was pleased with the bat's sacrifice.

FFXV is supposedly 10x as big as The Witcher 3. Wow ... [img]http://i.imgur.com/9tfSuxQ.png[/img] http://www.dualshockers.com/2015/09/01/final-fantasy-xv-map-size-potentially-revealed-its-roughly-an-enormous-780-square-miles/

The ending of "Return to Crookback Bog" in TW3 I got was so depressing. Wow. I think I need a break...

I'm sitting here play Metal Gear V, absolutely loving it. But in the back of my mind ... all I can think about is Mario Maker. I'm really excited for that game!

Sold a digital item on Steam, that came with a physical item, for more than the cost of the physical item. This is the second time I've done this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Everyone right now is playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. And here I am, waiting for Super Mario Maker to come out. And also Star Fox Zero.

Patrick Hancock hates babies. Rick and Morty.... I wish I could view thee second season. I need to play MGSV. I spray farted earlier.

my wife and i got into Rick and Morty the same time we got into Gravity Falls. Man, some good cartoons out right now.
El Dango avatarEl Dango
Rick and Morty is like reverse Archer. Instead of everyone being insanely quick-witted, everyone stutters, pauses and repeats themselves a lot.

Drew a preeeeeeety sweet thing for the August edition of Cblog Recaps. Keep an eye out for it!

No spoilers or anything, but the MGS V troll is amazing. I went from concerned to laughter in a matter of minutes.

Not saying that the "augment your pre-order" announcement caused me to fall ill, but the timing seems like too much of a coincidence.
