I worked on this years Smash Ultimate Tournament for Nick! Wish I had more time to add more character mashups, it was a lot of fun! pic.twitter.com/qgKxBokRR5— Kurt Snyder (@kurtmsnyder) August 19, 2019
We're back from our week in North Carolina and we're completely wiped! We still managed to put together a show, though. You know we wouldn't leave you guys hanging! Hopefully you still get some laughs and info out of it!
Yes, I know it's nearing 1 in the morning on the East coast, but duty calls! I'll be taking my yearly trip to North Carolina this Friday, but you know there's no way I'm missing out on the podcast. We're doing a solo show tonight, and I'd love to have you join me!
Also, for those who don't know, I work my regular schedule from North Carolina. Nothing will change for you as readers of the site, as the post flow will be business as usual. The only difference for me is that I'll be working with a view of the ocean, instead of my neighbor's truck.
Last week's podcast was one of our best ever. We had an unusual crew, and it lead to all sorts of new discussions. This week is going to be completely different, as it'll just be me and Kirby this time around! We could certainly use your company, so feel free to join us at 3:15 PM EDT when we go live!
Sometimes you just have a magical podcast episode. You don't know it's coming, but when you're in it, you feel it. This was one of those episodes. All it took was a combination of crew that we don't have on the show often, and it made for something really special. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did. What a blast!
If we say the term Metroidvania to you, you most likely know what it means instantly. Say it to a non-gamer, and it means absolutely nothing. Was the creation of the Metroidvania term a wonderful addition to the gaming lexicon, or does it do nothing but further confuse those who are already befuddled by gaming terminology to begin with?
GoNintendo.com has been around for 15+ years now, and even longer if you count the old Blogspot days! From day one until now, we've been doing our best to provide the most up-to-date news source for all things Nintendo. From Nintendo's biggest titles to the latest indie efforts, GoNintendo.com has every bit of info you could want on the world of Nintendo, and then some!
Throughout those 15+ years, we've been putting out all sorts of content. Blog posts, previews, reviews, interviews, features, videos, and a podcast that hasn't missed a single week since its inception! Running GoNintendo is a full-time job, and there's never any shortage of things to talk about, or ways to showcase content. Our work has reached far and wide all thanks to you guys and gals, the loyal GoNintendo followers!
Why after all these years are we starting a Patreon page? Because you guys keep asking us to do one, that's why! While we've been reluctant to do so, the deafening cries have grown too loud for us to ignore anymore. Our Patreon is now up-and-running, and we're excited to connect with you guys in some new and interesting ways!
Looking for all sorts of tiers and what they'll get you? Sorry to disappoint, but we've only got one! A single dollar will get you everything we do here, be it early access to videos, exclusive blog posts with opinions, and more. We know some of you will be crazy enough to donate more, but we feel like $1 for everything we offer is the right way to go!
What can you expect to get for your patronage? Truth be told, this Patreon is meant as a way for fans to show support for what we do with GoNintendo in general, but you know we can't let you do that without some extra goodies! How about turning to you guys for Parents Play suggestions, or maybe even a Parents Play live-stream!? Want to hear our thoughts on other pop culture topics like movies, TV, music, professional wrestling, anime, and more? Perhaps we'll revive older GoNintendo series' like Sprite Rippers, which you'd have first access to! We're down for all of that, and are certainly willing to listen to your suggestions as well. Let's make this Patreon all about the content YOU want!
Rest assured, nothing at GoNintendo.com will ever change. You'll still get all the news/reviews/features you always get, and we'll never lock that content behind a paywall. It's ALWAYS business as usual over there, and we promise NOTHING will change. The only content our Patreon will offer is early access to some superfluous features, an exclusive home to content outside of the scope of Nintendo, and a better way for us to connect. Hopefully that sounds good to you!
Whatever support you throw our way, thank you. To think that anyone would want to give us some of their hard money for doing what we do is unbelievably humbling. The reason we've been around for 15+ years is because we've somehow found the most amazing fans the internet has ever seen. It's been our pleasure to keep you well informed on the world of Nintendo, and as long as even a single one of you is around, we'll keep doing the same for years to come.
