Nintendo Everything: Site updates

New live chat feature and giveaways

If you’ve been visiting Nintendo Everything for a long time, you may have heard about something called “Game Nights”. Each week, we hosted game events where the community and members of the staff could gather/play various titles online together.

Things just never worked out with Game Nights the way we originally intended though. Organizing people into groups was never easy. Visitors showing up at the last minute or halfway through the event also became troublesome. It was sometimes difficult for people to be interested in just one game as well. The feature just isn’t at a place where it can run smoothly at present!

Having said that, one element I greatly enjoyed about Game Nights was being able to interact directly with you guys. The discussions and comradery were two things I really looked forward to! And now we’re hoping to bring that back… but in a different form.

That’s where “Discussing Everything” comes in. What is this exactly? To put it simply, each week we plan on hosting a live chat directly on the site. You guys will be able to interact with us (and maybe each other – more on that in the future) in various discussions – be it news, a featured topic, or questions you have for us. I’ll be there every week, and other staffers like Austin will be around regularly as well. It’s really something that we’re leaving open-ended. Once we kick off the first Discussing Everything – which we hope to do soon – all will become clearer. One thing I can say is that I’m absolutely committed to making this a long-term feature on the site, and it will hopefully evolve as time goes on.

Before we get started, we would greatly appreciate input from you all. Which day of the week would work best for you guys? Do you have a particular time preference (please specify timezone as well)? Discussing Everything will probably be an hour each week depending on how things go, so keep that in mind! We want to try and come up with a day/time that will work best for most people.

That’s all on Discussing Everything for now. I do hope that some of you will end up joining us for some of these chats. And if you are interested, please leave a comment below or send us an email about which day/time would be best for you. All input will be considered, and we’ll hopefully have an update to share next week.


Now for some other quick news! Right here on the site, we have one North American code to hand out for Mighty Gunvolt. Simply leave a comment below (brownie points for those of you who give us input on Discussing Everything!) and we’ll choose a random winner in a week’s time. There are also two Smash Bros. 3DS demo codes (North America) up for grabs on our Twitter account – check out this message. We often hold giveaways on Twitter as opposed to the main site, so make sure to follow us now and in the future!

Our LEGO Ninjago: Nindroids contest has come to a close. We greatly appreciate all who participated!

Unfortunately, there can only be one winner. And that winner is Avi Lekowsky after choosing a random entry! We’ll be in touch shortly to arrange delivery of the game.

Keep track of the main site and Twitter for more giveaways. It’s something we hope to do more of in the future!

LEGO Ninjago: Nindroids launched in North America this past Tuesday. To celebrate, we’re holding a giveaway on Nintendo Everything.

Here’s how it works: we want you to mention your favorite LEGO game in the comments section below with a tiny (or large if you prefer) explanation about your choice. I know I’m partial to LEGO Island myself having played the game for countless hours during the late ’90s!

So long as you’re based in the US, you’re eligible to participate in the giveaway. We’ll pick a random winner to receive LEGO Ninjago: Nindroids in a week’s time and then send out a copy.

And while we’re on the topic of giveaways, we have five European codes to hand out for Ice Cream Surfer (see here). Winners for will be chosen tomorrow afternoon and announced on Twitter.

That’s all for now. I hope to see some of you getting involved with these giveaways!

 

Bad news bears: No podcast this week, sorry. :(

Hey guys, it’s Austin with just a small update: Due to reasons, we’ll be skipping on doing the podcast this week! Really sorry for those that were looking forward to it– if you sent in listener mail (which several of you did!) we’ll get to it on next week’s show. If you just HAVE to hear people talk about video games this week, I recommend checking out Just a Chat, where Austin and Brian from this website right here talk about stuff in video games.

Sorry again. We’ll be back next week, and I think Jack might be with us!

Mario Kart 8 is finally available around the world. How are you all enjoying the game thus far? We want to know!

Austin and I plan on putting up a little feature about Mario Kart 8 in the near future, and we’d love to receive some feedback from you guys. Simply fill out our little form here and you’ll be good to go! If you have any additional comments, you can send them in via email or in the comments section below.

Thanks all!

 

Your help is wanted

Wanted to give this one last bump to the front page. For the most part, we’ve mostly got this shift covered, but we have one more potential slot open! Please get in touch if you have any interest.


Nintendo Everything is looking for a news writer to potentially add to the team. We’re seeking those who could cover the site at times between 12 AM ET and 8 AM ET.

That breaks down to…

11 PM CT – 7 AM CT
9 PM PT – 5 AM PT
5 AM – 1 PM in the UK
2 PM – 10 PM in Australia

We don’t need this entire eight-hour slot to be filled, but we’re looking for those who can help us keep Nintendo Everything up to date on a regular basis, Mondays through Fridays. Only have a couple of free hours available? We still want to hear from you if you’re interested! This is unfortunately a non-paying position, though we’d greatly appreciate your help.

Getting in touch is simple. You can reach out through our contact form or on Twitter. Hope to hear from some of you soon!


On another note, I wanted to quickly mention that Nintendo Everything may be a bit quieter than usual tomorrow. I’m almost always available to cover the site for numerous hours each day, but I won’t be around much of the early morning/mid afternoon due to a personal matter. You’ll probably be seeing a few posts from Austin, and I’ll be sure to cover anything that’s missed once I return!

 

Gaming Everything design updated

Wanted to mention this in passing just for a moment. Over the weekend, we finally updated Gaming Everything’s design to match what we have going on here at NE. The two layouts are nearly identical now, though GE does feature a red color scheme.

For those unaware, Gaming Everything is just like Nintendo Everything, except with a focus on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. A majority of the updates are also handled by yours truly.

So check it out if you’re interested. Also, you can find Gaming Everything on Twitter here. I noticed that I never once mentioned this on here previously, or on GE for that matter… I’m pretty bad when it comes to promoting these kinds of things.

That’s all for now!

 

Thing: Where’s a podcast!? Technical problems cause a delay and possible cancellation of episode 79. :(

edit: Nevermind, Laura saved the day. Podcast will be up tomorrow!

Hey guys, it’s Austin! I’m writing a thing here to let you know that the episode we recorded of “Here’s a Podcast” (which was episode 79) this weekend doesn’t seem to want to play– or is perhaps corrupted– on my computer here. I’m trying to recover the file itself, but the nature of the recording this week was weirder than normal so it’s proving a bit difficult. With any luck we’ll have it for you tomorrow, but if we can’t get it back then we’ll have to miss our first ever week of the show. Jack, Laura, and myself apologize from the bottom of our endlessly deep hearts.

Happy New Year!

2014 Posted 8 months ago

Happy New Year! 2014 is certainly a year to be excited for in the world of Nintendo, as new games such as Super Smash Bros., X, Mario Kart 8, and more are on the horizon.

As far as what lies ahead for Nintendo Everything… well, there’s plenty! We finally launched a new and proper design for the site on our sixth anniversary a few months ago, and we continue to tinker away at new feature additions and small visual changes, which we’ll hopefully have news on soon.

In 2014, I’m also going to try and emphasize video content a bit more. I’ve had one particular idea in my head – for at least a year, if not two – that I’ve been dying to try, but timing and other factors have made it difficult for me to pursue previously. I’ll be looking to change that this year. Along with my new idea (that’s all you’ll get out of me on that for now!), I’ll be continuing with Random Thoughts and we’ll possibly introduce a couple of additional things as well.

Aside from videos, you can expect other regular updates from us – tons of additional news, more features, more reviews, and more podcasts (thanks Austin, Jack, and Laura!).

Finally, I’ve been meaning to bring up one more site-related topic before moving on. I admittedly do a terrible job at promoting, so you may be unaware of things like our YouTube and Facebook pages. Did you also know that we have a sister site that covers everything gaming? Don’t forget about our forum as well!

Now it’s time to get mushy!

Although Nintendo Everything is ultimately a “blog”, I tend to leave any and all personal updates aside (including mushy stuff like this) so that content can take the spotlight here. At the end of the day, that’s what you guys care about! Still, I hope you all know how much I truly appreciate each and every one one of you. I appreciate the comments you all bring. I appreciate all feedback we receive – both good and bad. I also appreciate some of the very neat people I’ve met “virtually” through the site – especially on the forum and comments section. Wait… this is starting to sound like Thanksgiving with me sharing what I’m thankful for! Haha.

If you ever have any comments, questions, or concerns, you can always feel free to send an email, a message on the forum, or a tweet. Frankly, I’d love to hear from all of you! Is there anything you’re not satisfied with on Nintendo Everything? Annoying ad causing problems? Have an idea for something you’d like to see on the site? What do you want to see here in the future? Just let me know. I welcome all kinds of feedback.

With that, Happy 2014! Let’s make this year a good one!
