This weekend on Twitch TV: Let's get Retroactive

5:45 PM on 03.02.2012 // Bill Zoeker

This weekend on Destructoid's Twitch.TV channel is hustling and bustling as GDC approaches. King Foom is throwing himself a birthday bash in Garry's Mod on Mash Tactics. Philanthropy is exploring the carnage of Raccoon City in Resident Evil 2 on Chill with Phil. And Rad Show is turning the racing world on its head in Nascar 2011, of all games.

Saturday Morning Hangover and Sup Holmes will not be airing this weekend as the respective crews make their way to San Francisco for GDC. As well, Mash Tactics will be off for the entirety of next week as King Foom will be attending GDC for the very first time. Chill with Phil will be airing Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday of next week during Mash Tactics usual time. Spamfish of The Melted Fridge Show and Johnny Luchador of Rad Show, respectively, will be covering Wednesday evening. And Monday evening will be substituted with the newest addition to the channel, Retroactive with its host Crux. Retroactive debuts this Sunday, after Rad Show, with Crux playing through Super Mario Bros. 1 & 2 on the NES.

Fridays on Mash Tactics are traditionally "Community Collaboration" days, but as today is the day before King Foom's birthday and on the eve of his trip to San Francisco, Foom has decided to throw the program out the window in lieu of relaxing. Today at 4p.m. PST, Foom plans to kick things off with some Garry's Mod, the joys of which he just discovered on this past "WTF Wednesday".

Substituted Reality is Destructoid's only PC exclusive gaming show, hosted by lovably offbeat caster Awdamn and airing every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 8p.m. Pacific. Tonight after Mash Tactics, Awdamn will be checking out the Steam demo of Rayman Origins, and from there continuing through Deus Ex: Human Revolution. This Saturday at 8p.m. PST is some good old-fashioned Team Fortress 2 mayhem. And Sunday, following the premier of Retroactive, Awdamn will be playing some Saints Row: The Third.

Chill with Phil airs this and every Saturday at 4p.m. PST. Host Philanthr0py is continuing his full series playthrough of the Resident Evil franchise. After defeating Tyrant in Resident Evil: Director's Cut last week, Phil is ready to take to the streets in Resident Evil 2.

321Go Cast is Destructoid's live-recording community podcast about nothing, airing at 2p.m. PST and starring JohnnyViral, Pangloss, and Ryu89. This week, the guys are joined again by their trusty stream host Sterling Lyons.

Super Fantastic Videogame Rad Show: Get There! starring Johnny Luchador and Bill Zoeker airs every Sunday at 4p.m. PST. Rad Show takes a light-hearted approach to gaming, with the guys usually focusing more on breaking games for ridiculous results than completing feats of skill. This week the guys are taking to the endless oval in Nascar 2011, in hopes of creating the worst crashes possible.

Hell yes. Nekro just pulled this from a Pokemon card booster pack. Don't judge me, I find the game to be fun, even if my deck is terrible.

So I decided to tinker around with some assets in Source Filmmaker and make a still image. Kind of a Jurassic Park-inspired thing with dino assets from that Ark game. Care to offer some comments, critique, etc.?

Everyone's posting about waifus and I'm just here posting a blog about why I enjoy a recent game instead. This is why I'll never be promoted.
Gundy avatarGundy
There is a Spelunker themed dungeon in Megadimension Neptunia called Neplunker. It even comes complete with Spelunker music and dying from falling off waist high ledges! 10/10 would game over again.

You know among all the bosses I've fought I didn't expect Vagina Tooth Dragon to go down like a bitch.

News Tip off for anyone who wants it. Seems Binding of Issac has been banned from the Apple IOS app store.

Waifu Wars piece is up. But also, I got the Trails of Cold Steel limited edition in the mail the other day and just now looked at the pin you get with it. Wow, that horse is one smug looking son of a bitch. Kind of makes me want to punch him...

You can now buy Naruto movies on Steam. At least sell some good movies if you're going to get into anime Steam.

All right, you guys, time for the important questions. Fuck, Marry, Kill: Tharja, Sully and Sumia?

The time has come for me to play Earthbound.

As the Ultimate Waifu gazed down upon the Earth from her Celestial Throne, she sighed, for mainly shit-tier waifus were being chosen. But one fairy gazed into the stars, declaring her love, sacrificing dreams and spiders on an alter of glitter for her.

Thanks to my girlfriend, we own a PS4 now. ID is Ikaruszino. I don't own any multiplayer games (yet) or have PS Plus (yet :p), but feel free to add me so in the future maybe we can play something.

My absolute finest moment in all of Metal Gear. Also, the first time I had driven a truck.

Ok. That EDF 4.1 game is really really good. You can even sing and shout "EDF!" with your soldiers! Holy crackers.

I want to goad my wife into playing RE Revelations 2 with me but I don't know if she can deal with the whole 3D spatial movement thing, even if she plays the supporting character.

Heads-up: Mega Man soundtracks are free right now at the Capcom Store. Guessing it's a glitch. All of them are digital downloads, except for Mega Man 9, which is a physical CD that requires money for shipping. Link in comments.
