A Message From Kevin Cassidy

Hello everyone.

This is t27duck. I know many of you probably have gone through several emotional roller coasters over the last few days.

I have been in contact directly with NickyHill over the....uhh... status of things and have received direct instructions from Kevin.

Firstly, the following is a direct copy/paste from Kevin Cassidy himself...

Hey guys, I'm sorry I've been MIA for the last few days. This was completely unplanned, and I had no way to contact anyone when it happened.

I want you all to know that I'm healthy and safe. That goes for Mom Brain and the whole GN crew too. Actually, it goes for anyone tied to GN. We are 100% fine, I promise.

Obviously something is keeping me away from work for the time being, but I can't get into details yet. I know that's extremely frustrating, and I am right there with you. As soon as everything is worked out, I'll be back to share details with you.

Again, I promise everyone is in good health. This is not related to the pandemic or anything like that. Mom Brain and I are sitting on the couch doing crossword puzzles and being our stupid selves as I type this.

When everything is settled, I'll fill you all in. Unfortunately, it's going to take patience, and that goes for our end too.

Ok, so again the above is straight from Kevin.

Additionally despite the very appreciative rise of support from his staff and fans... I have also recieved other instructions.

Disregard the post about Nintendojam and Yoshiller "handling the site" until his return. No, they are not in any trouble. I have been instructed that this post is the post on the site until I hear otherwise. I am not revoking anyone's access to various parts of the site for the time being unless told otherwise, but I do ask the existing alt story writers to "take a break" until given the high sign else I will invoke stronger measures.

Beyond that, the rest of this site will run as "normal" with comments and PMs working as they should.

Whew, very happy to hear y'all are doing fine. I grew up going to this website and seeing what Kevin and crew would share on this site. I don't want anything bad to happen to y'all, and not out of some selfish desire of just wanting more content, I genuinely want y'all to be all right. Y'all are like a distant family to me. Stay safe and I hope any issues are resolved gracefully.

I am glad to at least hear this much and hope the best for whatever is going on.

Glad to hear you're all okay! Hope everything is sorted out soon, can't wait for you to be back. Wish you all the best!

I’m glad everyone is ok. I seen no news from RMC & go Nintendo podcasts on Saturday as well. But I’m sure U guys can make it up for us. Stay safe & we all being waiting for U’re comeback.

Hi. Only seen this message in the last half an hour, it's 8:30am here in Ireland. It's all a bit bizarre. But I'm glad to know RMC, Mom Brain and everyone else is safe and healthy.

Wishing you all the best RMC and Mombrain.

This is extremely weird. So apparently he hasn't posted news stories in days, is sitting there with mombrain doing crossword puzzles on the couch, but won't update the site or tell us what's going on. If he was taking a vacation I could totally understand that but he always has others take the site over while he's gone. He disappeared without a trace and only responded once people started making actions in his absence. I've been off and on with them for 15 years and this is the weirdest thing I've ever seen.

I'm just glad he's okay though according to what he said. I kept thinking it was something medical or that maybe his parents had passed away.

I'm glad everyone is okay.

That said, can we just chill on the speculation and such? It won't make whatever's going on pass by any faster, and I'm sure it only frustrates RMC while his hands are tied with whatever's going on.

Be patient.

I agree that people here need to relax, but speculation and intrigue could've been avoided with a quick "we're taking a short break, but we'll be back soon." If they don't want to spell out the reasoning behind that break, fine (and preferable IMO), but then don't make cryptic allusions to mysterious problems. This whole thing has been needlessly dramatized by all involved.

In these covid times you think we wont go all conspiracy theory on you, Kevin? Pff. Good luck with that Smile Being an overly curious bastard I really want to know WTF is up here... But on the other side, being a kinda nice person (and a damn cool guy) I wish you all the best ad good to hear your health is good! Smile

Cheers to that!

Miss you already, I need you in my life 😂

Seriously, I hope you get sorted soon, keep strong...we're all here by your side 👍

I hope all is well. We do appreciate all he does here. And can’t wait to hear from him again.

You know, I know a guy whose specialty is interfering in other people's business. He may have targeted this site, because he knows I joined recently. I shouldn't say much more than that though, since he is dangerous.

Hopefully it isn't some scary legal troubles.
Can't wait for things to be back to normal again. Smile

Best wishes to the entire GN crew.
T27duck as well.

Hang in there! We love you guys. Best of luck in this situation.

Didnt they vote through some things in the eu last year or the year before, where linking to news stories with a picture/video would force taxes?, and that was gonna be in effect like next year? I recall it sounded very bad and I bet it could effect sites like these!

Happy to know you're healthy/safe/okay RMC. Take whatever time you need to sort out real life stuff first, and we'll be happy to see you return to GoNintendo whenever you're ready in future too!

You've done an amazing job running the site for all these years, and you'll do an amazing job in future too!

I was worried, but if RMC says all is well then I'll take his word for it. For a second I thought it was the end of Gonintendo...

Glad to hear you guys are okay.

This reeks of lawyers to me. Hope nothing ugly is happening.

I'm glad he and his loved ones are safe and healthy.

To all the conspiracy theorists here: It's not probably because of Nintendo and trademarks. GN is, after all, one of the biggest (and best) Nintendo news sites there is. Cassidy even gets games and stuff from them to review.

Relax =)

I haven't been on the site in the last week and a half due to me moving. So I didn't know anything was off until I went to watch the podcast at work last night and noticed there wasn't a new episode for the first time.... Ever. So I'm definitely glad to hear that everyone is safe!

Could be a baby on the way...

Good to hear. I was worried about the site getting silent. Take care!
