GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - What kind of videos do you want us to make?

No Parents Play tonight, as my parents are away. My desire to work on video lately is through the roof, so I'm quite sad that the rents aren't around! No worries, as they'll definitely be back next week. I even have their next game picked, which is going to be fantastic for the picture-in-picture addition. Look forward to that next week, but for now I'll see you in a few, short hours!

I've been doing video features for GoNintendo for awhile now. Nothing insane, mind you...but we do have two weekly series'. We've dabbled with features over the years, but the two that are mainstays are the GoNintendo Podcast and the Parents Play series. Both are very near and dear to my heart, and in recent months I've been trying to think of ways that I can better put together those shows. Hopefully you've seen some of that with Parents Play, and there's certainly ideas to come for the podcast.

With the work that I've put into the Parents Play series, I've found my passion to create burning more than ever before. I absolutely love putting together posts for regular GoNintendo and working all the social media sides of things, but I really am interested in video. I want to learn more about how to create high-profile content, or at the very least, somewhat higher quality. I really like the medium and am extremely interested in seeing where I can take it.

I don't need to tell you guys and gals that the videoscape is chock-full of content now. YouTube has given us billions of videos to look at and millions of people that create amazing content. A space that was wide-open just a few years back is now exploding with new ideas and creators every single day. When it comes to me, I'm not looking at some grandiose plan to create something that becomes the next big thing. I mean that would certainly be nice, but my goal is to create video content that you guys enjoy.

Rather than throwing darts at a wall and giving random things a chance, I thought I'd turn to you guys. I certainly do have some ideas that I'm going to try out, but why not go right to the source? If there are things you want to see me do with video on GoNintendo, here's your chance to tell me! I'm open to any/all ideas and suggestions, so long as they're video related. Maybe you've got the perfect idea for me to tackle, or perhaps you could spark an idea that spirals into something completely different. I'm just excited to see what you have in mind! Leave a comment and share your ideas. I promise to scrub through them and share my thoughts.

NES Classic Edition preorders selling out at multiple retailers

Did you want to get your hands on an NES Classic Edition? If so, you might be in for a bit of a fight. Online preorders at Best Buy and Toys R' Us are all sold out at the moment. It seems that Amazon hasn't opened up preorders yet. eBay has some options, but you can guess how well those are going to work with your wallet. If any other retailers open up preorders or there's stock replenishments, we'll be sure to fill you in!

Pokemon kept out of Olympic closing ceremony due to not being as widely recognized as Mario

Mario showed up in the Rio 2016 Oympic closing ceremony to get the excitement going for the Tokyo Summer Olympics in 2020. Other notable Japanese characters like Hello Kitty and Doraemon were also included, but why wasn't the Pokemon franchise represented? According to an unidentified Tokyo Olympic/Paralympic Committee member, the ceremony show began preparations in January, which was quite awhile before Pokémon GO. Another reason sighted was that the Mario franchise has sold more games worldwide when compared to Pokémon, making the franchise not as well known comparatively worldwide.
