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.

My new book on video-game journalism has been released. Enjoy it ^.

And, finally, ends over a month of my life of tireless work and research. When the project to get some Guest chapters into the Volume kinda failed I instead turned into research-boy. I donít think Iíve ever worked harder in my entire life and I couldnít be more proud. Itís a little more Ďrough around the edgesí than other editions in the series but, otherwise, I am very proud of how it turned out. The messages are there and thatís what counts.Kindle and ePub editions will be coming out shortly in the new year. It was an absolute nightmare†to format this with Google Docs and Iím a perfectionist so youíll all have to wait. Iíll be releasing new PDF/Kindle/ePub editions shortly too of every single†Volume, a Ďremastered collectioní if you will. A remake. A HD collection. Pulling a Sony. Pulling a King Kong. I dunno. But I want to level up all the quality and smooth out my earlier mistakes and generally create a more cohesive experience of reading between volumes. The first one was written over a year and a half ago and thereís an obvious gap in quality from the first few sentences.

Iím a horrible writer anyway.I went with some different ĎWikií formatting with this Volume. I got some evidence and sources, involved some facts beyond simply quotes. Thereís some theory in there, but itís video-game journalism, Iím mostly commenting on fact or analysing reviews and stuff. My opinion is clear, the conclusion I reach is philosophical but I think I manage it. Let me know what you think of the new format, Iím thinking of mixing it up for Volume Four†though, which will focus of Community. Thatíll be fun.Weíre now 3/5 of the way through Up, Down, Left, Right†and I hope youíve enjoyed it so far.

Watch this space for when new editions are released and other bits of bother. Critique corner might return, who knows, but Iím low on time still with some exams coming up.It was a pleasure writing Volume Three, do enjoy it.

Merry Christmas.
