Here are the videogaming thoughts of some guy who probably should be working right now. I blog sometimes and comment often. I'd like a job involving videogames somehow but I'm not quite there yet, so in the meantime I just try to enjoy life and play a lot of games.


I wish this was me in my free time.

Everywhere else on the internet I go by the name Swift Robot, this includes Xbox Live so add me if ya like.


I has a PS3 now, my fanboy days are over. Woo for equal opportunity :D




GutsDozer, meet the Mad Cat MkII.

Robots, video games, metal, pron, djent, awesomeness and ultraviolence FTW.
I also love me some fighting games too.


I'm also part of a podcast, a very unofficial one. Made by Aussies for Aussie Dtoiders and other Dtoiders who like to listen to Aussie Dtoiders. Check that shit out.

Oh and fire.... fire is good.

Hey all,

I've been absent off the Dtoids for a while now but it's about time I got reconnected with the community. I've been travelling all over the shop from December to about August like some smelly backpacker and I am now home safe and sound. 

So what the hell have I been doing? Well I have been going through the trials of getting oneself reestablished after someone uproots their life for an eight month period, hell I'm still getting things sorted and have now officially been unemployed for the longest time since I was 13. But as well as all that stuff, I've been getting reacquainted with my old friend, the Xbox. Been throwing a lot of time into Reach, good shit that, and since I am poor right now I have not made many other new game purchases. But Reach is keeping me occupied so that'll do until I finally land me a job.

Speaking of jobs, that's the other thing that has consumed most of my time since I have been back. Job seeking, but more specifically, trimming and buffing up my work to help get me a good graphic design job. I didn't post much of the stuff I made on Dtoid in the past because frankly I di Hey all, I've been absent off the Dtoids for a while now but it's about time I got reconnected with the community.

Job seeking, but more specifically, trimming and buffing up my work to help get me a good graphic design job. I didn't post much of the stuff I made on Dtoid in the past because frankly I didn't make much good stuff back then, all my creative talents went to my job. But now I have plenty of time to make some cool stuff to impress people and hopefully score me some work. So now here comes the part where I show you what I've been working on like an excited child at a show-and-tell session. I made myself a personal folio website thingy, if ya check it out I think you'll dig it. I basically encompasses my love for classic arcade games and the like. Nice huh? Well, I like it anyway. After that I decided I needed to make some new art and design stuff to freshen up my folio, I also figured that since SplitReason.com pay for good geeky shirt designs that I could tak out two birds with one stone and make art to send their way. Sadly nothing's been approved yet but here are some of the geekery that I have sent their way. Also one of my artworks got featured here on merry ol' Dtoid, so I decided to bring some love back and show off what I've been up to :) Ninja Gaiden! Or was it Shadow Warriors. Pop culture mashup! This was meant to go on a shirt so you would look like a megazord. Sadly, copyright says no. Jonathon Holmes picked this one up and slapped it on the Dtoid front page, downright decent of him I must say. Thanks again mate. And this is my latest work, don't ask why I made a Street Fighter/Starcraft mashup. I just did. There are larger versions of these images on my deviantart page, and I'll be posting more work there and on here from now on as well now that I'm back in the swing of things. I also have ideas for putting my own videogame together, but that's a looong ways off from happening ;) Anyways now that I have updated you all on my happenings, what's been going on around here? Dtoid, you look different, have you lost weight? New haircut maybe? Cheers!
