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. Not only was ...

 
 
 
 

Changes

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 the Flixist.com c...

 
 
 

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 same thing, so don...

Spelunky: The art of death

I sprint and land in spikes. The familiar screen stretches out once more. I am dead. Try again? Video-games since their very inception have championed ridiculous ideas around death. The near immortality guaranteed by a 'respawn system' re...

 
 
 
 
 

Journey: Engineering Relationships

Spoilers It was an odd sensation to find myself inside the real of writing once more. For the past month or so I have devoted my life to endless revision, endless tweaking of my learning and endless devouring of poor-grade food in the tw...

 
 
 

Hiatus

As youíve probably noticed, thereís been a distinct lack of content recently. This was a pretty hard decision for me to come to, but itís one that I need to take. For the next month and a half Iíll be thrown into the hardest academic perio...

 
 

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.
