Nintendo Everything turns 10

Posted on October 23, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in Site updates

I can hardly believe that I’m writing this, but Nintendo Everything is now ten years old. We first opened our doors way back on October 23, 2007. 10 years is a long time to be doing anything. In the age of the internet especially, it practically feels like we’re a dinosaur at this point.

When you’ve been involved with something for ten years, tons of memories come to mind. One early memory that really sticks out is when I was taking driving lessons with a friend many, many years ago. After one of our lessons was over, my friend’s mother was driving us back home. Unfortunately, it was taking a long while for us to reach my house since the road was filled with traffic. Once we did finally arrive at my home, both my friend and his mother apologized that the drive took so long since they knew that I wanted to be back as soon as possible in order to cover something for the site. I couldn’t imagine why they would be apologizing to me for something that seemed so insignificant in the grand scheme of things (not to mention that they couldn’t exactly control the roads), but I think they really understood how much Nintendo Everything meant to me at the time – even though the site was in its extreme infancy.

That’s just one memory, but there are so many more. I’ll always remember covering the 3DS conference in 2011 when I was extremely sick and eventually landed in the hospital. There was another time when I was in the hospital for a small procedure – still ultimately surgery – and rushed back home to get back to work. There have also been so many times that I’ve forced myself to stay up or wake up at ridiculous hours to cover conferences or just to post about news in general. Back when I was at college, I’d run to my car, set up my laptop in the passenger’s seat, connect to Wi-Fi, and get in a few posts in between classes. Honestly, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. It’s been a long ride, to say the least!

What I hope everyone understands by reading this is how much time, energy, and dedication I put into the site each and every day, all year long. This is a job for me, but I’m doing it because I love it and I have a huge passion for being able to share updates about Nintendo with everyone – be it news, interviews, our reviews, or anything else. That was the original purpose of the site, and nothing more. That goal still holds true today.

So that’s another year in the books! We’ve reached ten years, and that still hasn’t settled in for me yet. Thank you to every single person who has made Nintendo Everything what it is today – be it a dedicated volunteer, a news tipper, someone in the comments, or just someone stopping by for a single visit. I hate being cliché here, but the site wouldn’t be the same without you all. I truly mean that.

Thanks for the support over the years! I’ll keep going for as long as I can.

    Nice! Congrats for having an excellent page for 10 years!

  • Congrats! Here’s hoping for. . . well, I don’t know if you want another ten years, lol. Whatever amount will be fulfilling and fun for you all! ^o^

  • NovanIV

    Congrats on hitting such a huge milestone!

    I’ve only been here since the early Wii U days, and found this place while looking for a site that could give me the news about the next Nintendo games without a complete “Nintendo is Doomed” narrative to go with it. I found you refreshing because you didn’t have that narrative, but you were still not afraid to criticize when it was deserved.

    I’ve found you a reliable and credible news source since then, which is more than I can say for a lot of gaming outlets. So keep up the good work!

  • Drybonekoopa85

    I think I came across this place in 2011 when the 3DS stuff was going on.

    I know how the work till you’re sick/near death/etc feels, as I was doing that when it came to translating stuff for the FE fandom around Fates and such. xD Thanks, but take it easy! (Easier said than done, though!)

  • Adrian Brown

    I’ve been here since the early 3DS news. Congrats and long life to NE!

  • masterjedi

    I came here from WiiUdaily and it’s been a nice ride. Congratulations on ten years. Your hard work is appreciated.

  • ShadedPlant

    I’ve been coming here since 2008, so I can’t believe it’s been 10 years for NE! Congrats on all the hard work you’ve put into making NE an amazing place to come to for Nintendo news!

  • Addy

    I don’t remember when I first started coming here, but anyways, happy birthmas.

  • ben

    Congratulations you outlived Neogaf

  • Supporter

    I’ve always wanted to thank you for your hard work Brian. I see posts from you and some other writers at all kinds of hours (I’m a bit of a night owl). That kind of dedication does not go unnoticed. So thank-you for providing a community for us to gather and enjoy our passion for Nintendo.

    That story about being in the hospital and still rushing home to cover early 3DS news shows your phenomenal dedication! 😀

  • ecoutercavalier

    Congratulations! Thanks for all the hard work!

  • Dry

    Thank you, Brian, both for running a great website and being an awesome boss. Just remember that for every comment you see here, there are at least a hundred more who appreciate you. Happy birthday.

  • Dr. Bob

    I came here some years ago to add some spice to my life because I never get good news. I also really wanted to be up to date on nintendo things.

  • JasonBall

    Only been here a few years but have always enjoyed it and you. I always love the offbeat comments sprinkled in.

    As Exy said on the 9 year post, congratulations on continuing to be the least awful Nintendo news aggregator around, or something like that. Which is an understatement, you guys are the best. Still wish there was more original content because whenever there is they’re awesome, but I enjoy news anyways.

  • Reggie

    Congrats.

    NE is honestly one of the best Nintendo news sites there is.

  • Benson Uii

    Congrats NE! It’s been my go to Nintendo site since 2014 ever since I went from PC gaming back to Nintendo gaming in late 2013 with the Wii U. Gyro aiming ftw! :p

    Thanks for the amiibo alerts and special edition alerts! Keep up the good work! Also my first comment in this site and disqus! Yay!

  • Marco Romano

    Excellent News Site, If I were you I would enhance something like Articles, side-things, maybe Video-Reviews…I don’t know, but as far as it concerns news this is the best!

  • Lumine

    Happy birthday!

  • Gestrid

    Whoa, ten years?!

  • ronin4life

    Congratulations going 10 years strong!
    NintendoEverthing is the only gaming news site I never stopped visiting regularly. Quickly posted news and no drama makes for an excellent portal into gaming info.
    Here’s to at least 10 more years!

    • Bart

      Very much agree with the no drama bit. No opinions, just news is why I love this site.

  • Max

    Can’t believe it’s been that long. I think I joined the forum in 2008. Those were fun times. But this is the only Nintendo site I go to for news. And some Youtube people like Gamexplain. Thank you and here’s to another 10!

  • Desiderio Lazaro

    Congrats! Been here since WiiU days, best Nintendo blog by a long shot.

    I just don’t like the layout, could be turned into something more professional to my eyes but still, content is what matters in the end

  • AJK

    Happy birthday. By far my favourite gaming news site. Refreshing to find somewhere that genuinely cares about games without any politics or outrage clickbait

  • Vadim Dzhantyurin

    Thank you for hard work. I read Nintendo Everything everyday, it’s my nintendo-related source of news for many years now.

  • Tlink7

    I’m glad this site is around. It is one of the few Nintendo news sites that just objectively reports the news without controversial editor opinions that just serve to stir trouble/clicks. That said, I do enjoy the reviews you guys do, they’re critical, even of Nintendo products <3

  • Elanczewski

    Nice! Sometimes I wonder if you ever sleep Brian.

  • hi v3.0

    Happy birthday NE!

  • Strawman

    Keep on truckin’ NE and Brian, also take care of your health, you’re not a robot 😛

  • Princess_Eevee9

    As one of your newbie fans I just got started here yet the dedication you have is obvious. You guess are clearly one of the best information sites (only outclassed by Reddit though that place is just… Weird?) I came here from Nintendo Life & GoNintendo both places are awful and ran by morons, I gave up hope on finding a Nintendo News Forum that I liked until GameFaqs alerted me to your awesome presence and I checked ya’ll out! Here’s to you all riding for another 10-15 forever years and Good Luck! I love how you guys interact with your fans (us) regularly too, really builds the sense of community!

  • timZ117

    Congratulations brian, and everyone involved.

    Not sure how long, but i’ve been coming to this site for years now.

    The biggest nintendo news was always here first, and that’s what makes nintendoeverything so special to me. The dedication and hard work that comes with running a site like this is enormous, and thus ten years is a huge accomplishment.

    It is , of course, up to you, but i can’t wait for the next ten years.

    – Tim

  • Found this when i bought switch.
    Since then, i check this site few times everyday.
    It’s really good, rich in content and awesome, site.
    Wish ya next 10 years or more guys 🙂

  • Brian

    Wow, thank you for all of the kind words everyone. It means a lot to me!

  • Vinicius Pires

    Congrats! I believe this is the best Nintendo news website of them all, seriously. Thanks for all your hard work!

  • Carlos

    Before I use to come to this site I use to go to Gamnesia. The one thing I hated was that there would always seem to be something negative about something, even if it was something like an announcement. When I found out this site was one of their sources I decided to come straight here instead. I am glad I decided to do that.

    I check this site religiously every day. It’s become like a second home to me.

    We can tell how much hard work you put into this site, Brian. We really appreciate everything you do. I know I’ll be checking this site everyday for another 10 years.

    Congratulations on 10 years, and hopefully to another 10 more.

    • Aline Piroutek

      I do chech site religiously every day too, almost 10 times a day.

  • dataminor

    Thanks for all of the hard work! You have a dedicated tab in my browser!

  • Max

    It’s been cool seeing the site change and evolve over the years. I used to use the forums a lot as well. I miss those times. Anyhoo, I found some archived snaps of NE’s changes throughout the years. Enjoy!

  • Constantinos Lapiotis

    Happy birthday. One of your big strengths is that you publish articles about events and news faster than anyone.

  • I am happy to have helped jump start your growth on Facebook and help you continue to do this for a living. 🙂

    I have a ton of a love and respect for what you do here every single day. I know exactly what it takes to do it as I’ve been there. I now do something similar but on youtube…. still regularly reference this place and send our watchers here. Consistent, reliable, friendly – know I appreciate everything you do. It’s a tough road.

  • Melatelo

I realise this site is your baby but I hope you’re looking after yourself first and foremost. In saying that your hard work never goes unoticed. This has been my go to Nintendo site for years now, and that’s not going going to change. Thank you.
