A goodbye of sorts

Itís hard writing that but, well, itís not true! Iíll still be around! Youíve probably noticed Iíve neglected this silly olí bloggins for a good while (bloody Ďell Nathan) and thatís Ďcos a lot of stuff has been happen haps...

 



Gunpoint Review

Oh, my, I'm back. Oh look at that. I'm not dead! After all my exams. I'm alive. Nice. Okay. See you all in three years! Actually, let's talk about Gunpoint. Blimey. Okay so I wrote about Gunpoint around five of your Eart...

 


Read my free tragicomedy novel. And stuff.

Trimalchio is a tragicomedy, which is neither tragic nor omedy, about a young playwright drafted in to adapt The Great Gatsby. While dodging visions of a mysterious past he finds himself slowly sinking into the mind of F Sc...

 


Wrote another free book about video-games

YES THIS IS WHAT I DO WHEN I GET BORED. I've released three books on video-games thus far as part of my Up, Down, Left, Right series. Volume Four is more about video-game communities than video-games themselves, though it ...

 



Weapon of Choice: BioShock's Wrench

When people talk about weapons having 'weight' in video-games I always think of BioShock's wrench. From the minute Atlas said with his Irish†laden†lips "Pick up a crowbar or something."†I knew that there was something afoot...

I have a few books coming out very soon (one on video-games, another on American Psycho, my first proper novel and a poetry compilation) so I'm very short on time at the moment. I'm here to say that I've now happily joined th...

 


Why I've not been around so much.

Thereís a reason I havenít posted much not so often, or not at all, in the last few months and itís down to a singular reason. This reason has sucked up more time than anything. I fully expect my impending exams to do the sam...

 


VGAs: Done right?

Note: Yes, I disappeared for a millennium. Yes, I am back. Yes, things are hectic but hello! About roughly one billion years ago I wrote one of the very first 'Game Critique Corners' on†Assassin's Creed Brotherhood. Forgiv...

 


I'm Okay With No More Half-Life

A note: I'm terribly sorry. Truly I am. I'm juggling a lot in the air right now and I've decided to cut off regular gamey type stuff like this. All of this will be irregular postings on whatever I want. For now I'm moving ove...

 


About Nathsiesone of us since 4:57 PM on 02.26.2010

I'm Nathan Hardisty, an author, ex-editorial writer for Platformnation.com, ex-games writer at Screenjabber. I now write for a variety of sites on the internet while still updating both my DTOID blog and my regular blog, which can be found below.

I am currently writing for Flixist.com

Also I'm incredibly pretentious about video-games so beware. I might just hipsterblow your minds.
