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.

Glad you guys are okay.

I could only think of one thing that might keep him from doing his podcast and breaking the streak... and that’s a secret press trip to the opening of Nintendo World Japan....

They now have a grand opening date next week.

I was going to say, couldn’t they just be taking a vacation?

rmc has always been the type of guy to notify somebody ahead of time about any plans. He definitely deserves a vacation but he's not the type to just vanish for days without saying anything and if he ever is forced to do something he always has somebody take care of the site in his absence.

Like somebody else said all of this could have been avoided if he had just said he had to take a break for a while and that he'd be back soon instead of everyone worrying about him or wondering what was happening

Please don't get the previous mods in trouble! I think they were just doing their best at keeping us informed.

The line where you said you and Mom Brain are just relaxing and playing crossword puzzles put a big smile on my face and heart. I am super relieved to hear that all is well. Praise Jah! Well, you all take your time; and of course, we all look forward to your return.

Good luck with whatever you're going through guys. Like everyone here I'm super relieved to hear that everyone is okay. We can wait until everything settles down and we will certainly be here and happy to hear from you when that happens. Until then you guys take good care of yourselves, see you soon ^^

What a weird weekend without the Podcast. Looking forward to your return RMC. I miss your updates and look forward to things getting back to normal.

So many theories going on inside my head! Can't wait to see what this is about!

Glad everyone is okay! ^_^

Been listening to the podcast faithfully for 15 years now.... So glad that it is not a health issue. Wishing everyone well

Same here my man, I've been calculating lately and it's been 15 years. 15 freaking years. Thanks indeed RMC.

As long as everyone is safe, we can all wait Smile

I’m happy to hear that Kevin and everyone at Go Nintendo are in good health, because that’s what’s most important. Stay safe, all.

While it doesn't sound like it's under the best circumstances, honestly RMC and everyone at GoNintendo deserves a break for all the continuous effort you're always putting in.

Thanks for the update, I was getting worried about ya'll. I hope whatever it is doesn't stress you out, we'll all be here when you're up and running again.

Apparently 2 days before rmc vanished he linked to that pokemon game leak. TPC didn't want anybody showing or posting about it. Maybe that's why? But sites like eurogamer also posted it and they're still operating as normal. Unless it's because they're a huge site. This entire thing has smelled like legal trouble

Very glad to hear the whole crew is healthy and safe. Can't wait for them to sort whatever has to be sorted and get back doing what they do best here at GoNintendo. Take care, everyone!

It's nice to hear RMC and co. are ok.

I just hope GoNintendo doesn't become Gonetendo.

At first I was like “Go Netendo”? Like because he wouldn’t be able to use the word Nintendo anymore?? And then I realized you meant Gone-tendo >.>

I havent been on the site in a few days so I didn't even notice. I'm glad everyone is safe and I hope its not Nintendo being stupid

Wishing you make a quick return.

Glad to hear everyone is okay.

I think RMC is actually not even human, but a Nintendo news-machine. That's how he can work so much for our enjoyment. But even machines need maintenance at times and that's what's happening now. He's getting rebooted, oiled and lots of love from Mommy Brain! Smile

Glad everything is OK health-wise. Looking forward to learning what is going on. GoNintendo is a site I visit daily so I feel like RMC being there is almost like a fact of life, you know?

Same my guy, ive been visiting like 3 times a day since right before the 3ds came out, this silence is so weird. Its the only website i have on my homepage that gets me to the internet cause i always go to gonintendo first haha

Hope youre doing okay RMC! Looking forward to those witty subtitles when you come back!!

Hope everything turns out well. Remember that if and when things get back to normal, you don't owe any of us an explanation as to what happened.

Reader since 2005, when the name "Wii" was non-existent, we were speculating about the "Nintendo revolution", also in this site. Oh, what a time, and oh, how old I am.
Feels surreal to see this state of the site.
Since 2005, I visit this site almost daily.
Whatever happened, I am confident everything will turn out for good.
Enjoy a bit of a rest, RMC. You deserved it.

Likewise, I've been consistently here since way before the Wii even existed myself, been here from the start, even had a different username up until recently. Glad things are O.K despite seeming a little unusual not having our updates.

Huge fan, started coming back in 1996 for Nintendo 64 launch news back when it was AOL Keyword: GoNintendo. It was a great place to visit for the chat room, midi files, and sprite sheets. Just wanted to show my support no matter what happens.

Ah yes. The GoNintendo BBS days were a great time as well.

I...honestly did not know this site was around in the 90s. Shocked Been coming here since the mid-2000s (2005 I think).

I was also unaware the site was around before 2005. In fact this is going to take some investigation...

Joke, guys. GN began in fall 2005, after being a differently named Google blog for half a year.

Overjoyed that everyone is fine and healthy. Very puzzled by the rest of this mystery, but for now I will find peace in the eerie calming silence

Been here since the Nintendo Revolution days. Can't live without my daily dose of GoNintendo. The past days have been so dull. We are waiting for your return and be well!

Echoing the "glad everyone is okay" and "no explanation needed" sentiments. Been here since at least 2007. Can't wait for the return, but I'll wait impatiently, lol
