This weekend on Dtoid TV: Tribes Ascend w/HiRez

5:30 PM on 07.27.2012 // Rick KingFoom Olson

It's been an amazing week so far at Dtoid.Tv, and we're not done yet! Join us on Mash Tactics tonight, as we'll once again be hosting a part of Destructoid's weekly gaming get together, Friday Night Fights. Get ready to fly, ski, and shoot the evening away in one of our favorite, free to play FPS'es, Tribes Ascend.

In addition, thanks to wonderful peeps over at HiRez, we'll be opening up our very own, private, custom Destructoid server tonight! And we may even have some special guests from HiRez joining us throughout the evening. You won't want to miss this!

Don't forget to tune into our huge variety of shows this Saturday and Sunday as well. Johnny Luchador will be checking out the indie horror game, Slender, on Rad Show:Get There, Phil is going to dive into Alan Wake for the first time on Chill With Phil, Johnathan Holmes will be interviewing Anthony Burch, co-creator of Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? on Sup, Holmes?, and that's not even the half of it!

Check out our full schedule for the weekend:

All times are Pacific
4pm - Mash Tactics
It's that time again, time for Friday Night Fights! Join in on the high flying action this evening as we play some Tribes Ascend with the community, and possibly a couple of guests from HiRez.

[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
Come hang out with AwDamn tonight as he attempts to finish his on going playthrough of Batman: Arkham Asylum.

[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
Grab your coffee, relax, and hang out, as Conrad and Jordan get their MOBA on in the amazingly fun, and addictive, Awesomenauts.

[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
Batman fever is in full effect it seems. Today, get your second weekend dose of the caped crusader, as Brett saves the day in Batman: Arkham City.

[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
Come by and chill with Phil, as he dives into the bizarre and surreal world of Alan Wake, for the very first time

[Philanth0py hosts this relaxed show in which he performs full game (and series) playthroughs.]
8pm - Substituted Reality

4pm - Rad Show: Get There!
Horror and cowboys should make for quite the mix as Johnny Kuchador starts off the show with the indie title, Slender. Then, to finish off, he'll be more than likely be stacking horses in Red Dead Redemption

[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

The Unofficial Destructoid Christmas Card has been ordered. If you claimed one, you should probably PM me your address now.

Started playing Wonderful 101 and it's good, but pretty overwhelming. Think I'll put it down for now. Also sad that there is no penis formation. [img][/img]

What the hell happened to Arcade racing games?

Does anyone know if Advent of Indies is happening this year? I looked it up today and didn't find any updates on their Twitter since January.

I brought that cake I made into work and it disappeared fast. Maybe if I lose my job I can just make a living selling cakes on the end of my street.

My review-in-progress of Just Cause 3: Explosions - good. Grappling hook - good. Flying - good. Driving - an abomination. 8/10.

Well, ugh, this is awkward. A year ago I wrote a cblog about cool indie games coming in 2015, and not a single one of them has been released :/

I was happy to have never spoiled myself the final boss of Splatoon's campaign. That was one of the best boss fights ever and I absolutely love the credits track. So relaxing. [youtube][/youtube]

Today's kids will never know the struggle of putting an encyclopedia on top of an NES Max to auto-buy 99 potions before heading into Terra Cavern

Sometimes, on more dreary days, I make a smiley face with sliced-pickle eyes and bacon grin in my lunch-burger. It fills me up all the same, but I feel a warm sense of accomplishment, achievement and satisfaction on top of it.

Well, my Bloggers Wanted post is up, but it timetraveled back to Sunday behind Zetta's blog or will only post two days from now otherwise. Mrgrgr.

Yeah I still can't take the new Batman and Superman seriously, Batman just looks so stupid with his cowl lol.

This near final build of Nuclear Throne is going to bring back my eye twitch.

When I was a lad, I loved this game something fierce. [img][/img] Anyone else ever play the tie in Small Soldiers games? Maybe it's nostalgia, but I remember them being not too bad.

Finally got my surface pro 3. Holy shit I love this little guy. And Windows 10 is better than I thought.
Putting more effort into iOS game review than African American history book report. This is not what Dr. King died for. Or maybe he did, I wouldn't know because I'm not doing the book report. Wha-hey!!

More info and footage on that cancelled first-person THQ Avengers game is shown. The heartache's still real.
