GoNintendo Thought: A thank-you to YOU!

Reader appreciation day!

Been awhile since I've done one of these posts, which means it's about time I got to one! Always important to share stuff like this. As always, thanks for reading.

Those who have been with GoNintendo for a long time know that I really value the community here. At least I hope they know that! I always make a point to put together something to show my appreciation for you guys and your support of the site. Sometimes that's a podcast discussion, a Facebook post, a Tweet, or so on. Today it's a good, old post right here on GoNintendo.com.

I've been running GoNintendo, in one form or another, for roughly 18 years now. That's nearly half of my life! I've been working away on this site to bring you the latest Nintendo news, videos, reviews, and more day in and day out. While it's certainly time-consuming, it's been an absolute honor and privilege as well. Without a doubt, I owe that honor and privilege to each and every one of you.

Some of you have been here since day one, and others just popped in a month or two again. No matter what the case is, I want to thank you for your support. Thank you for visiting the site, retweeting our stories, liking our posts on Facebook, supporting our Patreon, and so on. What I do every single day is only possible because of you guys. What I do for a living simply wouldn't be possible without you guys at my back. Somehow I managed to get lucky enough to fall in with you wonderful group of people, and you've been supporting me and what I do all along.

I want to stress that not a day goes by where I'm not appreciative of what I get to do for a living. I went from being a Nintendo fan as a kid to covering Nintendo as an adult. I get to follow Nintendo more closely than ever, work with them on projects, and bring you all sorts of info every single day. It's just as mind-boggling today as it was when I first started. I could have never dreamed anything like this would happen. As a matter of fact, I never did! I had a completely different plan for life in my mind, but GoNintendo swooped in and took things over.

I'll never be able to thank you enough for your support, kind words, patronage, and so on. I've never been able to fathom just how lucky I am. Every time I think about it, I start to tear up. You guys are deeply tied to almost everything I do in a day. From my work to my personal life, you guys have impacted it in some way. That's an unbelievable feeling to experience, and equally overwhelming in a million different wonderful ways. There aren't enough words to express just how much you guys mean to me.

I could ramble on forever, but I don't want to waste your time. Long story short, thank you for everything. Thank you for following me on this journey, and for making it possible. As long as you guys are still here, I'll keep pushing ahead, doing what I do. It's my pleasure to be here running GoNintendo, and I can only hope that our coverage puts a smile on your face like the one you all put on mine every single day.

GoNintendo Video - I want to like Risk of Rain 2, but one thing bothers me...

Risky business

I've been giving Risk or Rain 2 on Switch a shot, following its shadow drop last week. There's a lot to like here, and I can see why people loved the Early Access version so much. That said, there's one thing that keeps me from really enjoying myself.

If you like what you see, we'd love to have you subscribe!

The one where we fixed everything!

Thanks to @KrazyKernal for the awesome artwork!

After last week's technical mishaps, we're back to good this time around. We had to have two people split a mic, as there was an unexpected guest for the show. Lube makes his return after quite the absence! He adds his unique flavor to the show, as always.
