I'm honestly not sure what to offer here. That is, I'm interested in hearing what you want!

Some people offer early access to content, others printed versions of their content. Some allow you to suggest an article, while others will have group plays for stuff like Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros.

What do you want? You can let me know at [email protected] and if it sounds good, I can try to add it at a fair donation amount.

Pending approval and editing by me, you will be able to contribute one article of your choosing on PoisonMushroom.Org or Mario's Hat per monthly donation!

About David Oxford

Hello, everyone. My name is David Oxford, and I... like to write. A lot.

Which is a good thing, as I've been writing for the better part of a decade and a half now. Jobs have come and gone, including 1UP.com and Nintendo Power, among various other publications and websites (click here if you want a more comprehensive list).

In and around these other jobs, I've also been running some of my own websites, which make up most of the collective Nyteworks network. These include:

Mario's Hat, dedicated to Canadian gaming news, as well as reviews and previews that anyone can use. And it's not just Nintendo stuff, either! Xbox, PlayStation, PC-- it's all good here. I try to spread the news about any sort of gaming-related events taking place in Canada, including early previews, launch events, and weekly deals.

PoisonMushroom.Org, or PMO for short, which over the years has evolved into something of a general sort of geek culture site. Comic books, movies, toys, wrestling, video games (naturally), and even "fast food culture" are all par for the course here.

The Mega Man Network, which I've been at the longest. There, I cover not only Mega Man games and related media, but also keep an eye out for Mega Man-esque stuff that would appeal to the same audience. Even in these times where it seems there is very little happening with the Blue Bomber, I try my best to make sure fans have something to look at every weekday from Monday to Friday.

The Pre-Order Blog, which presents everything you need to know about the pre-order bonuses available for games, or potentially movies, or anything else with a perk for handing your money over early.

The Friday Nyteworks Stream, which is a recent video game live streaming endeavor I've begun on Twitch. Previous streams can be found on the Nyteworks YouTube channel.

I try to provide insightful, informative, and where applicable, entertaining articles across the whole lot. This particularly applies to PoisonMushroom.Org, where I tend to write more comprehensive pieces, but it can be tough, particularly when always on the lookout for your next paying job.

Basically, I want to be able to focus more on these sites than trying to write for others. I want to write for you, to present some fresh pieces and maybe even provoke a bit of thought. I want to be able to devote my energy-- a few smaller projects aside-- on making these sites the very best they can be.

Even something as basic as The Pre-Order Blog can be quite time-consuming. Did you know that most PR people know squat about the pre-order promotions going on with the games they cover? So those entries tend to require quite a bit of research.

I want to do more. I want to do better, and I can do better. It's all about focus and support. To make these sites the best they can be requires more focus, and I need your support to make it happen.
