GoNintendo partners with ThatOneShowFUN for Eggbusters and more!


Fans of GoNintendo know that I love Austin and his various video features, especially Eggbusters. I've become friends with the man himself over the years and have always been looking for an excuse to work with him. We paired up on a weird Splatoon video awhile back, which was an absolute joy to work on. Thankfully, our budding romance relationship has built into a partnership for new video features!

Austin is going to continue the Eggbusters series with a little nod to GoNintendo, and we're going to proudly feature his work on the site/Twitter/Facebook and whatever else we can. Austin also has some other ideas up his sleeve for non-Eggbusters videos, but that's a discussion for another day.

As for now, everyone please welcome Austin to the GoNintendo family! We're very happy to have his weird/wonderful content to share with you guys!

My Parents Play - Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty

Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty has been a long-time coming for Wii U, but now that torturous wait is finally over! The game is now available in North America and I had my parents sit down to play. There's a neat co-op feature available in the game, so both my Mom and Dad took turns with a singular Abe. Can they manage to escape Rupture Farms?

GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - My Parents Play - Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty

The weekend is here, my friends! You put in another week's worth of work and have earned your free time! Let's just get through FriDAY so we can have fun at night! Hope you have lots of fun planned...or at least some well-earned rest! See you in a few, short hours.

I am a very, VERY big fan of Oddworld. I love the entire universe, all the games attached to it and the series' charm that seems to pervade every installment. I first fell in love with Oddworld thanks to a Playstation Underground demo disc that included a free demo of Oddworld: Abe's Odyssey. I played through that soooooo many times, as did my Mom. That demo made us so eager to play the final game, and thankfully the retail release met all of our expectations.

Now here we are all these years later. What's old is new again, and that goes for Oddworld as well! While it took some time to hit Wii U, we finally have Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty on Wii U. For all I know, this could be the first time you've ever played the game! My Dad certainly knew about Oddworld, but today marked the first time he's ever played an installment! In the video below, you get to see my Mom/Dad take on the co-op gameplay of Oddworld: New 'n'n Tasty. Two players taking turns on the same character...and it goes pretty damn well!

GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - What should Splatoon 2 be like?

Time for me to call it a night, boys and girls. I'm feeling pretty tired tonight. Lots of stuff going on here, both with and outside of work. Nothing bad, just busy! Getting some rest should help to keep me from losing my mind with all that's going on! See you in a few, short hours.

Nintendo has a major hit on their hands with Splatoon. While the Wii U install base may not be all that big, the owners out there are more than willing to eat up what Nintendo is putting out. That seems especially true for new IP, with Splatoon becoming a great success. Nearly half of all Wii U owners have picked up the game! That shows that Nintendo fans really have some trust in the Big N when they put out something completely new.

Splatoon seemed like it had everything working against it. The title has a very Japanese-centric style, which can be hard for Western audiences to accept. The focus of the game is online multiplayer, an area where Nintendo isn't really proven at all. While there was single player content, it's very clear that this game is meant to be played online. On top of all that, it's a shooter that manages to be friendly and colorful, all while the traditional route in this genre is dark and bloody.

Even with the odds stacked against it, Nintendo managed to create a big hit. The sales continue to grow around the world and it's very obvious that a large fanbase has been created. The best part is seeing that Nintendo is just as appreciative of fans supporting the game as fans are of the game itself. I mean, we just saw one of the game's devs break down and cry on stage because he was so happy for the fan support! What an absolutely beautiful thing to see. It shows just how much heart the younger devs at Nintendo have.

I think we all know what's coming next. Splatoon has been a big hit, so it's silly not to believe that a sequel will come out at some point. We don't know what platform or when, but you can bet that Splatoon 2 is going to happen. The question is, just what will it be? You'd have to imagine that online multiplayer is going to be a focus once again, but what else should be in there? Do we need more online multiplayer modes? Should there be an expanded single player game? Should it take the base idea in a completely new direction? What do you want for the inevitable Splatoon 2? Leave a comment and let us know!

Hangin' with Mr. Koopman - NintenDaan Wednesday

Last week we had Yoshiller come in and take over for Daan, but this week the man himself is back in action! NintenDaan is here to take on the site from now until around 10 PM ET. That's when I get back to work and pick up where he leaves off.

I hope you're all having a wonderful week so far. I also hope you have a great weekend planned for yourselves. You all work hard and deserve some fun!

See you later tonight, gang!

GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - Are you afraid or excited for the upcoming Sonic movie?

So much work to do...so much stuff to put together. Business and personal lives are jam-packed with stuff to do. Let's hope things start calming down soon. Let's also hope things are nice, calm and fun for you guys lately! Enjoy the free time for me! See you in a few, short hours.

We've heard rumblings of a Sonic movie for a long time now. We're talking about a real Hollywood movie. Something that's going to go out in thousands of theaters across the world. It seems like this project has been shrouded in a ton of mystery ever since SEGA first mentioned it. That might have something to do with SEGA not really giving us any info to go on! At least today we got a confirmation that the project is still coming and is planned for release in 2018.

The only real tidbit of information we have to go on comes from the nature of the project. This Sonic movie is going to be a mix of live-action and computer animated content. When you think about that just based on visuals alone, you'd expect something along the lines of the Garfield or Alvin and the Chipmunks movies. I'm not talking about the quality of those films, but their mixing of real-life actors/scenery with a few computer animated characters.

It's this idea alone that is giving people a lot of cause for concern. Just how in the world are SEGA/Sony going to team to bring us a real-life/animated Sonic movie that is going to make us happy? I guess you could step back from that and wonder how they are going to make fans happy in general, but that's besides the point. Is there really a story that can be told that makes marrying an animated Sonic with the real world make sense? I honestly don't know the answer to that, but I sure hope Sonic/SEGA do.

When I picture a Sonic movie, I think of a fully animated feature. That could be hand-drawn or computer generated. I don't mind either way, but I think a fully animated feature really fits the nature of the character/universe better. I do realize that Sonic games have featured locations that were inspired by real-life, but when you talk about that being put into a movie, I just don't get excited by it. I'll certainly remain open-minded to the idea and look forward to seeing what the project looks like, but right now I'm feeling a bit unsure.

What do you think of the plans for an animated/live-action Sonic movie? Do you envision something that plays out in an awesome way, or is this going to end up being yet another cheesy video game movie?

GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - Last week's video content from GoNintendo

Oh man, OH MAN. Awesome video news coming up SO soon. Like really super duper soon. I hope you enjoy the news as much as I do. I think it's awesome, AWESOME stuff for GoNintendo. Couldn't be happier to have it happening. You'll find out soon enough, friends! See you in a few, short hours.

Man, I think we have two very good videos this week. It's the same kind of content we've been doing for weeks now, but these two videos in particular show what happens when the stars align. We always strive to do our best with our video content. These videos show what happens when those goals are actually achieved!

First up, my parents return to the fray with their first time experiencing the Resident Evil franchise. Watch as my parents try to wrap their head around the world of Resident Evil 4!

We also had a GoNintendo Podcast that was jam-packed full of into. We still have plenty of our usual silliness, but there just happened to be a ton of Nintendo news to cover as well! On top of all that, we get to your answers for our Twitter question and we ALWAYS leave room for music trivia!

My Parents Play - Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition

Resident Evil 4 might be the greatest entry in the Resident Evil series. At the very least, I think that notion could be argued. The same goes for this episode of Parents Play. I could argue that this is the best entry we've had in the series yet. There were other fantastic episodes, but this one hit all the right notes for me. Give it a watch and see what you think!
