I was originally hoping to host November’s Game Night today, but with Austin’s Extra Life craziness and some personal things on my end, I figured it’d be best to reschedule. We’re now set for November 10 at 4 PM ET / 1 PM PT. Mark your calenders!

Unaware as to what Game Night is? Check out this post for lots of handy details.

Update (9/29): Reminder: it’s tomorrow!

It’s been awhile, but we’re finally hosting another Game Night this weekend – and the schedule should be on track from here on out.

Join us this Sunday at 4 PM ET / 1 PM PT for some Wii U/3DS online fun. We’ll open the chat about a half hour before things begin. I’m guessing Mario Kart 7 will be the game of choice on 3DS, and possibly Black Ops II on Wii U.

After a several months hiatus, Game Nights are finally returning to Nintendo Everything. Although, perhaps we should change the phrase to “Game Afternoons”!

The event will officially kick off at 4 PM ET. Call of Duty: Black Ops II is the game of choice for Wii U, while the 3DS will be getting some Mario Kart 7 action. We advise you to show up early to exchange friend codes and whatnot.

An official Game Night post will go live 30-60 minutes before the event begins. You won’t need any sort of account to join, and you won’t be forced to game with us in order to chat with others – so feel free to say hello even if you don’t intend to play.

You can find more details about Game Nights here. See you all later today!

We’ve got the poll ready and waiting for you below. All you need handy is your Nintendo Network ID (if you have a Wii U), your 3DS friend code (if you have a 3DS), and an idea of which online games for those systems you’d want to play this coming Sunday at 4PM ET. We’ll take a look at the votes this Thursday and let you know which games we’ll be playing, in addition to what 3DS/Wii U friends you need to add.

Please don’t fill this out unless you plan on playing this weekend. There will be a new poll each week, so you can fill out a future one if/when you plan on participating.

Game Nights: Every Sunday at 4 PM ET, starting August 18th

Let’s be honest: This is the game we’re waiting for for Game Night.


A couple of weeks ago we polled all of you to see which days and times worked best for getting together and playing video games every week, and today we’ve made our decision: Nintendo Everything Game Nights will be returning on Sunday, August 18th, at 4PM ET. Here’s all of the stuff you should know:

What: Game nights! We all get together (NintendoEverything staff, plus you guys) to play online games for a couple of hours every week. Just a small way of getting ourselves more involved with our games! On top of that, the event will be live-streamed for all to watch.

Where: On your Nintendo Wii U or Nintendo 3DS systems! Maybe Wii as well, depending on the week.

What games?: We’ll hold a poll every week to decide what games to play. If the same game keeps winning every week, we may force it out of rotation for a bit to give other games a chance as well.

How long? Probably just about two hours! Not a huge commitment, but enough to have some fun, chat with each other, and make good memories of blowing each other up with blue shells and stuff.

If you have any other questions, comment away! We’ll be here to answer.

 

Re-introducing… Game Nights! Come play games with us every weekend

Those of you that have been following Nintendo Everything for a while may remember that we used to do something called ‘Game Nights’ every weekend where the NE staff (myself and Brian primarily, but now we’ve more staff!) would come together with various readers to play online games together in a giant explosion of fun and competition. It was never very serious, and unfortunately due to time constraints we had to cancel the event until further notice.

Well, that “further notice” turned out to be now! Game Nights are returning in full force coming soon, but first we need to know something: What days and times work best for all of you guys!?

Through the wonders of Google Drive, I’ve made a nice form that you can briefly fill out picking a day of the week and a time. Brian and I will look at the results, see what fits our schedule, and then let you guys know what ends up being the day! Or perhaps we’ll do different days every weekend, I dunno.
