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
FRIDAY
 
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.

SATURDAY
 
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.]

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

I would wait for a chance to play the game by myself, but I just have to know. Is David Hayter in MGS V in any way? Please no spoilers.

Guys, serious question... How can I make D-Horse to poop?

Goddammit @ FullmetalJ, you have poisoned my mind with...whatever the hell this is.[youtube]https://youtu.be/wv0iUKb80C8[/youtube] It's so, so catchy. Go suck a baguette. And thanks :3. Yes I have listened to all of it.

As someone who hasn't played the MGS series at all, should I play it by release date or story order?
Vuster avatarVuster
Been watching a good friend play the Metal Gear game on twitch soon. I will say I can understand the appeal 100% and Kojima knows how to make a great piece of work. I think will hold off on a new pc and get this if this keeps up!

So I can plug any headphones I want into my PS4 controller. If said headphones have a mic, will it work in chat?
ScreamAid avatarScreamAid
Gee whilikers, guys. I might just explain where I've been and what I've been up to while I've been gone. That'd be a good topic for a c-blog getting me whipped back into shape, right? I'ma try to write more, so expect more of me in the future!

Just bought Fez for xbox 360. Playing it on my 58 inch plasma. What a beautiful game.

So there's a chance more MKX characters are being revealed today. Now, I'm not saying you *should* cross your fingers and say a prayer for me to get my waifu Sindel just, y'know, it would be monstrous of you to make me cry with your lack of love & support

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.

I once posted that Total Recall was the best movie ever made. I would like to make note that Starship Troopers is a close second. Carry on.

I put too many peppers in my sausage and potatoes. My asshole is on fire. I want to cry when I wipe. But it was good.

One glorious Japanese twitter user made a custom LBX of one of my favorite Kamen Riders: [img]http://i.imgur.com/yp1oraHm.jpg[/img] It's like getting peanut butter in chocolate but with small robots and spandex banana men!

I feel terrible for not reading most of you beautiful people's blogs. Let's just say my passion is writing, not reading :s

People can debate GOTY all they want, but the real question is: D-Horse or Roach?

I'm dragging myself away from my PS4 long enough to say that MGS V is pretty darn awesome so far.

Down with that PAX Pox. Auhhhghghghhhh

MGSV: Sneaking into a heavily guarded Russian military base in Afghanistan at night, slashing throats while listening to this. [youtube]https://youtu.be/-hWZqllm3mQ[/youtube] Comes off like a perfectly planned scene in a Scorsese movie or something.
