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.
Unbelievably, Nintendo Everything is celebrating its sixth anniversary today. That number alone – “six” – completely boggles my mind. When our doors opened in 2007, I could never have predicted that the site would still be alive and kicking today.
Now, it’s true that we’ve gone through plenty of other anniversaries since NE came about, but this one is particularly special. I wanted it to be special in order to commemorate today’s occasion. And so for the first time in Nintendo Everything’s history, we’re introducing a major redesign.
Note: Expect to see the new site this morning!
Nintendo Everything won’t be the same come Tuesday. A change is on the way.
For an idea as to what we have in store, here’s a look at our new logo:
This was our first image. Now here’s the second:
Above is a pixelated image of something pertaining to our website. I wonder what it means.

Ah yes, it is that time of year again– time to start preparing and setting up our participation in Extra Life 2013! Last year we participated for the first time ever and managed to play video games for 24 hours straight while people watched us live over the internet. This year, it’s going to be the same deal only BIGGER, BADDER, and BETTER than ever! So, here’s the low-down:
What is Extra Life? What have you gotten yourselves into this time?
Extra Life is a charity organization that is most famous for setting up a global 24-hour gaming marathon that has gamers attempting to play any game– board game, video game, card game, etc– for 24 hours straight without stopping. Anyone can participate, and your fundraising goal can be any amount you want– don’t hesitate to sign up yourself if you think you can get a few friends or family members to pitch in a couple bucks.
100% of the money goes to the charity, and it’s used to purchase video games and consoles for kids who are chronically ill or otherwise have to stay in hospitals for extended periods. The games are meant to help take their minds off of what they may be going through, which I’m sure many of you who have spent time in a hospital can relate to!

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.
Not just the 3D Marios, but the 2D ones as well!
This is a survey that requires no signing up, accounts, clicking through ads, or anything. Just answer a required question, answer a non-required question (if you want) and make your voice heard in yet another NintendoEverything reader survey poll thing! Results will be read in the form of our top ten list on the next podcast, and if you opted to answer the written question your answer could be read on the show! So don’t say anything ridiculous.
Thanks very much. As stated above the topic for you guys this week is “How satisfied are you with the direction that the Mario franchise is taking?”.
Take the survey here! (more details inside if you’re confused)

As we’ve hinted at previously, we’re changing up the schedule for Game Nights. From here on out, we’ll be hosting each event somewhere around the start of the month.
Here’s the lineup of Game Nights for the rest of year:
October – September 29
November – November 3
December – December 1
Game Nights used to be a weekly occurrence. However, Austin and I both feel that monthly events would be the best approach to take moving forward. For one thing, we don’t want people to get burned out with the whole thing – it’s better to have that feeling of wanting more as opposed to ultimately being bored with the whole affair. There are other factors involved as well – such as scheduling and what have you – so I do believe this will be beneficial for everyone involved, including Austin and I.
I’m truly, truly sorry if we’ve disappointed anyone who has been participating in Game Nights. With this new schedule, I can guarantee that we won’t be making any additional major changes to the event in the future.
We’ve got the poll ready and waiting for you below. All you need is an idea of which online games for Wii U and 3DS you’d want to play this coming Sunday at 4PM ET. We’ll take a look at the votes and let you know which games we’ll be playing in time for you to prepare. Friends will be added on Sunday in the IRC chat.
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.
