Tfw the girl you always crushed on in college posts a picture of herself in a see-through shirt on Easter. ¡Ay, caramba!


 
 

I know what my next blog post will be on. I don't think most of Dtoid (or the gaming community at large) understands just how disgusting and inexcusable the situation with 2K and their WWE2K18 port for Nintendo Switch is. You'll all smell what I'm cookin'


 
 

Hunt: Showdown has taught me patience. Start up the game, servers are being reset, go do something else. Come back when the servers are back up only to discover the latest "hotfix" makes the game lag uncontrollably. Guess I'll play later...again.

 
 

Just bought Skyrim for Switch today. Here's a picture I took during my first hour with the game.


 
 

Just got Hunt: Showdown and man, what an intense experience. Took down a two man hunting team on my own, only to be ambushed by a crazy fire wielding maniac. Also, pretty happy to see my $300 Steam Machine run a Crytek game at 60fps (720p of course)

 
 

My brother signed up for Xbox Game Pass. Since he has an Xbox One, but no gaming PC and I have the opposite, I get to mooch off of him and get any of the Play Anywhere compatible titles that Microsoft puts on the Game Pass. Sea of Thieves, here I come!


 
 

Tfw you were the only blog on Tuesday so you get Larx's Tuesday C-Blog Recap all to yourself


 
 

At the edge of reality lie secrets which no mortal can ever know. However, in rare circumstances they have been known to pass into our world. Learn of the tragedy that befell the man who heard the Unknowable Question in my latest blog post. If you dare.

 
 

I only just noticed that Way of the Samurai 3 is finally out on GOG for $10! It's easily one of my favorite games ever and I couldn't reccommend it more highly. It's a bit obtuse at times and takes some getting used to, but it's so incredibly rewarding.


 
 

Here it is, ladies and gents: The most epic moment that has happened to me in Monster Hunter so far. I think this clip perfectly sums up why I love Monster Hunter in 30 seconds. Enjoy.

 
 

My #Shoutouttoid has to go to Larx. Definitely one of the coolest and most intellectual members of the Dtoid community. Also one that constantly encourages me to write blogs and I almost never do (I swear there's one on the way Larx!)


 
 

I want to thank everyone who contributed to helping me recieve my free lunch from Wes. A special shout out to dephoenix and Rudorlf especially. Know that with every bite I'll be reminded of the trust all of you have put in me. This is OUR victory, Dtoid.


 
 

As I seem to have inadvertently walked into the middle of a coup d'état with myself seemingly at the helm, you may want to know more about this "D-Volt" character that's being posted about. Or not. Either way, this post is now an AMA. Ask away Dtoid!


 
 

For my 100th quickpost, I have a simple request to make: SOMEONE FOLLOW ME! I need one more follower to increase my faps from 9 to 10. I'm tired of being stuck with just below 10 faps! Someone! Anyone! Deliver me from this hell!


 
 

We're being invaded by the Swedish! We all knew this was only a matter of time my fellow Dtoiders! To arms!


 
 

What is with the online in MHW? You have to go through menus to see who's in a session with you, and you'll never see anyone around in the hub. You can at the Gathering Hall, but since you can accept/start quests anywhere, no one ever goes there. #ItsJoke


 
 

My copy of Monster Hunter World has been delivered to my college mail center, but they won't send me the email to come pick it up. Why have they been holding my package hostage for over 2 hours? Amazon's already told me they have it!


 
 

About to play Darkest Dungeon for the very first time on Switch. I'm a big rougelike fan, but don't really know what to expect. Time to descend into madness.


 
 

It'll be added to the Dtoid Contact List soon, but for anyone who wants to hunt down some beasties together once Monster Hunter: World drops, my PSN name is D-Voltt (note the two "T"s). I'm having difficulty containing my excitement. Only 1 week to go!


 
 

Me upon learning the C-Blogs are fixed and I can finally read/write blogs comfortably again:


 
 

Found two bookmarks I made for myself back in 11th grade using paper and tape. Surprised they're still in such good shape. Guess I'll have to use them again.


 
 

I don't understand people who hate the voice acting in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. I love how the accents give a unique feeling to the fantasy setting and how the localization team made sure the script included plentiful expressions that fit those accents.


 
 

Time for a late night snack! Locally prepared peppers done Italian style, parmesan cheese and spaghetti sauce all on Italian bread and broiled to a golden brown. Sometimes life is about the simple pleasures. #Foodtoid


 
 

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.


 
 

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!
