My Parents Play - Kirby's Dream Land

Kirby is known for his power to suck up enemies and steal their abilities. It's so crazy to think that in his first adventure, Kirby couldn't even do that! Let's transport ourselves back to that time and have my Mom/Dad experience it for the first time ever!

Hangin' with Mr. Koopman - NintenDaan Wednesday

Time for the wonderful NintenDaan to drop by and take care of you guys and gals! I'll be taking a few hours off, but Daan will keep you up to speed on all the latest Nintendo news. He'll be here from now until around 10 PM ET. That's when I pick back up where he leaves off.

Hope you all are having a wonderful week so far! See you later tonight!

GoNintendo Podcast Webisode 562

Technical issues surface once again, but we've never let that stop us from salvaging a show! You still get the entire show we did today, just at a bit lesser quality. Thank the heavens for the live-stream version! I would have been really upset if we lost this particularly funny episode!

My Parents Play: Shantae and the Pirate's Curse

Believe it or not, my Dad found out about Shantae on his own. He discovered one of the Shantae games on an old DS I left at my parents house. This was all part of his personal quest to become a better gamer! Since he took a liking to Shantae, I figured I'd let him and my Mom check out the sequel!

GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - My Parents Play: Shantae and the Pirate's Curse

Friday is upon us, boys and girls. Time to put up with one more day of work/school and then get to the good stuff! You do the best you can and power through to the better half of the day. I know you've earned it! See you in a few, short hours.

My Dad has been trying to get better at games, so he decided to fire up one of my old DS' that I left at my parents' house. He randomly happened upon Shantae: Risky's Revenge and gave it a quick look. He told me he tried/liked it, so I figured why not let him check out the sequel? Have a watch and see how far my Dad makes it before my Mom has to come save the day!

GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - How do you feel about Nintendo branching out?

Time for me to call it a night, boys and girls. Tomorrow we have a fun little bit of news for you all. Expect that around 9 AM ET. It's game related and certainly fun, but don't think AAA insane news. We're talking about info on an indie title you already know about. Check that out here this morning! See you in a few, short hours.

Nintendo has said time and time again that they'll be branching out into some new areas. We know a few of those plans, but not much in the way of specifics. Nintendo is going to once again try their hand at movies, but it seems like they're taking a much more serious and hands-on approach this time. We also know about their plans for mobile and content on the way. There's some theme park attractions on the way, which we will hopefully find out more about soon. That certainly seems like a lot of irons in the fire, but today we learned Nintendo is lining up even more ideas.

Early reports from analysts show that Nintendo is going to keep dipping their toes into different waters. Some of the approaches seem like logical steps for Nintendo, and others seem to be coming out of left field. Today we heard about some of those new avenues. We heard mention of health/medical content, which isn't a hard thing to understand at all. Nintendo has already dabbled with some of this and now they seem even more dedicated. The same goes for 'computer software', which isn't defined enough for us to venture a guess what Nintendo means, but the Big N creating software just makes sense.

Then there's the mention of food-related efforts. This is the blurb that really got people talking, especially considering how little we know about what the direction is. Is Nintendo going to team up with existing restaurants for special promotions? Will Nintendo be opening some of their own eateries with a Nintendo theme? Hell, could Nintendo be working on some of their own food brands?! There's just so many questions here, and of course, Nintendo isn't talking about any of them yet.

How do all these different business ventures make you feel about Nintendo? Are you happy to see them trying some new things, or do you worry that the focus on new businesses will take away from their core content? Will game releases from Nintendo suffer in quality due to teams bringing more focus to new ventures, or will these various new ideas not have an impact on Nintendo's gaming side of things? Leave a comment and let us know.

Hangin' with Mr. Koopman - NintenDaan Wednesday

Wednesday in my state is looking pretty dark and gloomy right now, but I'm bright and cheery! My happy disposition is all thanks to NintenDaan, who's coming in once again to relieve me of my site duties for a few hours. He'll be jumping in now and hanging around until about 10 PM ET. At that time he'll head off to bed and I'll pick up where he leaves off.

I hope you all are having a great week so far. See you later tonight!

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

Man, I wish I could kick this headache. These damn allergies just keep fighting back. Working actually helps, because I forget I have a headache! Now that I'm alone with my thoughts...I just feel it pounding back at me! Oh well, maybe some sleep will do the trick. See you in a few, short hours!

Now we're getting into the groove. Monday we had our new Eggbusters episode, and today we give you a wrap-up of the video content we put together last week. If you missed out on any of our video fun, you can catch up on it below!

We recorded the 561st episode of the GoNintendo Podcast, and boy was it a big show. Not only did we have a lot of crew on hand, we also had a super-sized collection of news to discuss. We usually keep our show around 1.5 hours, but this one just kept rolling on!

As you saw yesterday, Austin brought us another episode of Eggbusters. The man himself took on Super Mario Galaxy to see if he could verify a very tricky glitch. Check it out below!

Sadly, we didn't have a new Parents Play feature. No worries, as my parents will be back this week to play something!
