All Kindle and ePub edition of Volumes One to Three are now available. They’re shoddy transfers, I know, but they’re legible at least. You’ll notice one or two additions to the books section, including my American Psycho book now named Killer Looks (the title that I think garnered the most votes) as my next book. You’ll also notice Volume Four and Five are up there for you to have a look at. Go on. Look at them.
Volume Four is releasing late 2012, possibly right at the end of the year, and Volume Five is launching the month before I go off to university. I should tell you right now that in the next month you’ll be seeing a lot of changes to Blogossus, including the return of ‘This Month In Hardisty’ which can only mean one thing.
Volume Four will be a case study focus of the community reaction to Spec Ops: The Line and will hopefully unravel the myths, legends and impacts within the community sphere of ‘gamerkind’. It’s going to be the longest volume, I think, and will be filled with a variety of chapters detailing links in responses to design choices of the game to the developers themselves.
Volume Five will be my final piece of games journalism for a few years and it focuses on me. Narcissism! It’s about the nature of nostalgia and the ‘retro’, tying the series back to Volume One as we focus on our history and our future. An emotional affair perhaps.
That’s all for now. Read the new remasters if you want! Ta ta!
