Gravity Rush 2's online shutdown has been delayed from the 18th of this month until July. That's welcome news, since I'm not sure I would've been on track to collect all 6000 Dusty Tokens by then. I'm as happy as Kat with a stick of meat!


Found my old PS1 steering wheel and decided to take it for a test drive to see if it still worked. It's a real blast playing Ridge Racer Type 4 with analog steering wheel controls. Certainly makes Gran Turismo 2 feel even more simulation-like as well.


tfw finally playing Xenoblade Chronicles 2 with a Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Pro Controller:


Bought a pre-owned copy of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse from Gamestop and it came with the pin set from the original printing run! Can't say I'm used to pleasant surprises. Maybe 2018's going to be a different kind of year after all!


I was out there lookin' like a damn snack, but you were on a diet. :(


Bought Tiny Metal for $12 from the Mexican eShop. I have to say, while certainly flawed, it's a decent Advance Wars style game, which is nice to have on Switch. It's not worth $25 by a long shot, but for 233.99 Mexican Pesos ($11.89), it's good fun.


tfw you find out your uncle dubbed the main character in a 90s hentai OVA and you're 3 out of 4 episodes in. Somebody stop me. (No, I'm not kidding. Why would I kid about something so specific?)


Riptide GP: Renegade is on sale for $5 on Nintendo Switch. Couldn't recommend it more. Huge racing campaign mode with Wave Race/Hydro Thunder style gameplay. The whole package oozes quality. Best $5 I've spent in months.


They repealed net neutrality on my birthday. At least I got to 22 without heavily restricted internet. Guess I just gotta make the best of things. Not the birthday present I wanted though.


My a capella group did Secret Santa (as we do every year) and this year I got these. Now my backpack is decorated with the proof that I am a Pokémon Master.


Oh, my questionable health notwithstanding, I recieved this deal from Paypal today. Anyone have any suggestions of good $20-$30 games to use it on? I have both 3DS and Switch, so either works for me.


So I went to the hospital after a sharp pain in my left shoulder and numbness all down my left side. Nurse said my bloodwork came out fine and it was just a possible side effect of my new meds that would stop if I kept using it. Yes, veeeery reassuring.


Get put on anti-depressants so I can finally focus on my schoolwork again. Anti-depressants cause mild to severe headaches so I can't focus on my schoolwork. Hahahahahahaha, when will God wipe away this fallen world? :D


You're 9 days early but gee, thanks Nintendo...I think?


You had better not be screwing with me Marcus Sellars! If Xenosaga HD Collection for Nintendo Switch gets announced the day after my birthday I will flip my shit. If I have to go another year without a Xenosaga HD Collection announced then:


If you're looking to listen to some good video game winter tunes (especially from Kirby) done in beautiful piano style, Jonathan Aldrich has a livestream going now. I highly recommend it if you're looking to relax and need something in the background.


Watched a few episodes of Bakemonogatari with Blonde Bass, vxxy, DeScruff, and a few other Dtoid members last night. It was a lot of fun. Heard a song I liked in one of the episodes we watched and I made a mashup of it. I'll put it in the comments.


It's Sonic Twosday! Or more accurately it's the 25th anniversary of Sonic Twosday (the day Sonic 2 released). Which also means it's Tails' 25th Birthday! Oh, Happy Birthday to you too Pixie (I guess).


tfw a Sonic shitpost from August ages like fine wine.


EA announced today during the Reddit AMA that they will be releasing a new peripheral alongside Battlefront II. They hope to have it compatible with all EA games going forward. The new device is pictured below.


Update on my Super Mario Odyssey speedrunning. I got a sub 18 second run on Metro Kingdom Koopa ----------- (redacted due to possible spoilers) I'm now Rank 86 in the world. I'll post the proof in the comments.


I'm shooting up the speed running charts! I'll post it in the comments in case it's considered a spoiler, but I'm pretty proud of myself. It's Super Mario Odyssey related.


The reason I really resent EA is twofold. Not only are their business practices rotten, but they always control a developer or two I enjoy. How can one boycott the company while still supporting those game developers? I just don't know. Will I ever?


When I said Dunsparce is my favorite Pokemon ever and I wear a pin of one on my backpack every day, I meant it. Now that I was featured in the article, I'll prove it here and now! Always reppin' the 'Sparce!


Started a flame war in the comments section of a YouTube video for suggesting Sonic fans should stop accepting a lowering standard for the Blue Blur's 3D outings. God forbid I demand higher quality from a multi-million dollar company like Sega.


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!
