Wrestling Empire released for Nintendo Switch today. If you love wrestling games like I do you gotta try it out. Best of all it has a free demo. Finally a portable wrestling game on Switch (let's pretend WWE 2K18 never happened, okay?)


 
 
 

I'd never heard of New Order before fishing my dad's old records out of the closet so I know I'm late to the party, but Brotherhood is stellar. I listened to both sides from start to finish and loved it. Also have B.L.T. and The Perfect Kiss 12" singles.


 
 
 

Some Japanese albums finally arrived from a friend in Yokohama. Love Haruko Kuwana and Junko Ohashi, so I'm pretty stoked about that. The Mariya Takeuchi compilation album is great too. These guys are gonna be doing a lot of spinning in the future!


 
 
 

My Christmas haul was a new turntable and some Sony XM3s. Listening to Yes with the slimes. Hope you all have a great Christmas too!


 
 
 

My Christmas present from my older brother: Uttachi, an obscure Japan only Pop'n Music spinoff title for DS. I'm about to waste a lot of time mastering a 10 year old rhytmn game.


 
 
 

Didn't play my Switch nearly as much as last year, but I definitely played quite a bit. More of my stats in the comments.


 
 
 

My older brother got one of those Astro City Mini things. It's actually really cool and surprisingly well built. Also why hasn't Golden Ax: Revenge of Death Adder been re-released before? I played it in arcades as a kid and it's still amazing.


 
 
 

Weird how not one review has bothered to point out that Cyberpunk 2077 is basically just a new Deus Ex. Similar themes, gameplay, characters, etc. Just as many bugs and glitches too. The sooner people realize this, the happier they will be.

 
 
 

Never thought I'd be this hyped for a port of a 2010 DS game, but here we are. Can't wait for this to unlock later today. I've been waiting years for the right time to play this and finally the time has come. Time for some Fushigi no Dungeon!


 
 
 

Found my mother's old Walkman F45. Despite being in a dank basement for decades it works perfectly. Listening to Fleetwood Mac's Greatest Hits on cassette will always be a thing of beauty.


 
 
 

When you find an old IBM laptop, there's only one thing to do! Make Fallout references!


 
 
 

Stuffed an entire textbook's worth of Japanese back into my brain over the course of one week and my brain feels burnt. Think we're gonna take a night off and watch some UFC 253. Hope everyone else has a great Saturday night!


 
 
 

Gotten back into my Japanese studies and really enjoying it. Studied it throughout college and this pandemic is the perfect time to focus on improving it even further. If I could get my N2 by the end of next year that would be raaaaad.


 
 
 

During quarantine my computer has turned into a rhytmn game machine and I am okay with this.


 
 
 

I've been breaking out the DK Bongos again and playing Donkey Konga 1, 2, 3, Jungle Beat, and even the Taiko Drum Master game for Switch. I'd fogotten how fun playing with this controller is. A shame they're essentially a relic of the past now.


 
 
 

My older brother got a Razer Kishi for Xbox Game Pass streaming and let me try it out with my Samsung Galaxy S10. It's a gamechanger. Controls are responsive and it's far more convenient and comfy than expected. Gonna have to grab one for myself.


 
 
 

Just got to play the Kickstarter backer exclusive alpha demo for Prodeus. Woah. Probably the best Doom inspired shooter I've played in years. Looks great, sounds great and it's pure chaos to play. Seriously can't wait for the full game to release.


 
 
 
 
 

It was pretty cool to see that my latest blog post here about productivity apps on Nintendo Switch was seen by both the creators of FUZE4 and the upcoming Colors Live. That really motivates me. Might have to consider writing more often.


 
 
 
 
 

It's officially been 8 years since I first started an account on Dtoid and oh what a glorious 8 years it has been. Proud to be part of a fun gaming community that's only getting better. Here's to 8 more years and beyond!


 
 
 

Bought Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord yesterday, but it was too slow and janky for me so I had to refund it. There shouldn't be a 30 second load screen between every screen transition when load times in the original are instantaneous. I'll check back later.


 
 
 

One of my best friends made $200 selling an unusual hat in TF2, so he bought me Receiver II out of no where. I'd been wanting it since it launched last month. It's just as fun as I was hoping. I have the best friends.


 
 
 

Double dipped on Pathologic 2 and got it for PS4. Runs horribly, but damn do I love it anyway. Every time I think the game can't get stranger or more intriguing it proves me wrong. I simultaneously want to save everyone in the town and burn it down.


 
 
 

The 12" figure in the Dark Souls 2 Collector's Edition is still one of the better special edition goodies I've ever gotten. Looks damn good on the new bookshelf.


 
 


About D-Voltone of us since 10:51 PM on 06.28.2012

Name's D-Volt. Destructoid member since 2012, gamer since as long as I can remember.

I have a pretty eclectic taste in video games, there being games I love from all different genres. I'm a video game Renaissance Man, if you will.

One of my favorite pastimes has been purchasing a lot of terrible games during clearance sales at local gaming stores and playing through as many of them as possible. I love finding the good elements in an otherwise awful game.

I also have a great passion for video game music. One of my hobbies is making mashups, often between anime and video game songs, and posting them to my SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/d-volt-88

My blogs are pretty everywhere. Sometimes I write stuff as normal as can be, other times I like to get experimental, but almost always my posts are infrequent. It's a reflection of my personality.

If there's anything more you need to know about me, have criticisms about my blog, or just want to say hi, feel free to message me.

I hope you enjoy my work and if you do, leave a comment for me in the article. I read'em all, trust me.

Happy Gaming!
