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.

Just a reminder: If you're game doesn't have a dancing murderer, or a dancing little girl, you're not a GOTY contender.

Season 2 of Fargo is out, and of course Fargo isn't Fargo without dumbass criminals, tragedy and black comedy mixed into one package. BTW, the Organic Mechanic is in this season.

Nintendo of America released a YouTube video promo for Fatal Frame 5. They used the 'word' "spoopy."

Had the brilliant idea of watching the original Alien last night before bed. Totally didn't have crazy dreams afterward. Also, Bilbo Baggins was a total jerk in that movie. [img][/img]

Sure Niero's all powerful, but does he have lips? Woah...

Finished playing the fan localization for Ace Investigations 2. These guys did a fantastic job, despite this game having the single most convoluted plot in the entire series. Here's hoping that somehow, someday, Great Ace Attorney will get this treatment.

A little late, but got the Platinum trophy for Dancing All Night. Was proud of myself, until I saw the medals in the collection menu. Coming for you next... after I master the Adachi dlc tonight.

Anyone else getting massive lag in between games of the Battlefront Beta? I'm running an AMD rig so it might be that but just want to know it's not just me.

Plague Knight is pretty rad, even when represented by mediocre artists [img][/img]

Initial impressions: Chibi-Robo Zip lash is pretty damn fun so far. It's like Mr. Mosquito + Castlevania + Umihara. Controls are spot on, platforming is actually very solid so far, and the characters are about as charming as they can get. +amiibo.
