Hey friends, it's your pal Shugnussy here to spill the beans and tell you exactly what's up at Radio Nintendo.

It's been a fun year for Radio Nintendo in 2015, we got the new site all launched up, a brand new stream that can handle many, many listeners, and much higher quality music. We have our new chat system which does not require Java or any kind of ad-filled web application. All you need to join the chat room is a Radio Nintendo account, which you can create here! Along side all that, waaaay back in April, our team was at the Vancouver Retro Gaming Expo playing tons of video game music in New Westminster, BC which was, as always, a fun experience!

Now I know a lot of you have many questions on what to expect from Radio Nintendo in the future. Will you produce more live shows? What happened to your old content? What other projects are you working on? Luckily for you folks, I'm here to answer many of those for you today.

Will you produce more live shows?

The simple answer, yes, we are interested in bringing back live programming in DJ sets, talk shows, and various other live formats. If you currently run a podcast, or wish to begin live audio broadcasting, feel free to shoot me an email at nintendojack@gmail.com. With that said, when we see a demand from producers who wish to broadcast, then we will resume live programming on Radio Nintendo.

What happened to your old content?

Ah, yes, the good 'ol days of Radio Nintendo. The Minus World, Live Nintendo, Silver's Saturday Show, Talk to the Animal, Game Freaks Live and many others... That content is currently not available on the Radio Nintendo website sadly, however, a lot of those people are still producing content online! If you're looking for the Minus World gang, you can find them over here. Live Nintendo switched over to Blitcast before departing from Radio Nintendo, that content can be found here. SilverSonic isn't doing radio these days, but he's doing frequent live streams on his twitch, and I'd also like to note he made it to Summer Games Done Quick a few months a go to speedrun Shadow the Hedgehog for charity! James is currently doing one-off broadcasts over on Chipbit, his chiptune exclusive radio. Finally you can catch whatever IllusDark8 is doing over at his Radio Whirlwind (which he still needs me to help run).

And yes, those good 'ol Radio Nintendo shows that used to be on air are saved, and you may see those podcasts return to Radio Nintendo in the future! But for now, go enjoy the other content they produce!

What other projects are you working on?

We're going to be testing several ideas. From multiple radio streams playing different content, to lower bandwidth streams that don't use a lot of data so you can listen on a cellular network where you may be limited on your data allotment. We're also in contact with several key people in the video game music industry looking to bring you exclusive content. For more on the back end, we will be rolling out a newer version of our content management system, Baconcore, which will allow site admins and future show hosts to better manage their content on the site. Other than that, there aren't many other things we have planned, at least not developed enough to reveal them, only to have them maybe not see the light of day.


Anyway, thanks again for sticking around with Radio Nintendo, you don't know how happy it makes me seeing everyone here. Also, I'll be sure to set up a special Christmas eve broadcast this year, it's killing me that we missed the holiday shows last year. And if you have anymore questions, just leave them below in the comments!

Hello friends,

When I got the news about Satoru Iwata's death, I was honestly in shock. At first, I thought it was a friend joking around with me, until I finally read Nintendo's press release. I had known about his medical history, missing out on the past few E3's, but overall, I never thought it would result in something as shocking as death. I spent most of my evening rewatching some of his E3 presentations and memorable "direct to you" segments. Iwata contributed a lot of the world of Nintendo, from his work at HAL to launching out Nintendo's most successful console.

From everyone here at Radio Nintendo, and the Nintendo community at large, we will miss you Iwata, you hold a place in our hearts.

    He deserved to live much longer without his medical ailments. Alas, I hope he finds eternal peace and gets to play all of his company's masterpieces as he pleases, rest in peace Iwata.
Long time no see!

Even though it might not seem like it at first glance, this update is actually a pretty massive one.

Firstly the things you probably won't notice:
  • The backened (baconcore) has had a plethora of updates, optimization and bug fixes.
  • A large majority of the Javascript has been redone to try and allow the frontend to be updated with much more ease and create a sense of uniformity in the code.

And now for the raison d'etre of this post...

Chat!


The chat feature is very much experimental at the moment but hopefully it will be a useful place for members to connect with each other or discuss what is currently playing on Radio Nintendo. More features are planned for it in the future but if you encounter any bugs or have any suggestions feel free to email me at dev@radionintendo.com.

If you want to check out this new chat just click here, click on the link in the page header, or use the chat that is now loaded with the pop-out player (the notification sound mutes by default in the pop-out player).

The pop-out player has also recieved an overhaul and scales based on the window size (works great on mobile in my opinion).

P.S. if you haven't closed Radio Nintendo in awhile you should refresh your page, otherwise you might run into all sorts of weird happenings.

As the site is still in development, there are bound to be bugs. If you find any bugs or have any suggestions, feel free to email them to us at dev@radionintendo.com.

Hey everyone!

Most of the time I have spent working on the website this month has been optimizing and fixing bugs in the backend, but there are some changes that will be more noticeable to all of you, so I thought now would be a good time to list them off.

New features:
  • Song title now in page title when playing the stream.
  • Double clicking the song title will dropdown a bar showing more (usually all) of the title.
  • Added BBcode inserter to user panel (BBcode already worked, this just makes it easier to use).
  • Animated GIFs! So long as your gif is below 250KB you can use it as your avatar!

Bug fixes:
  • Tweaked search a bit.
  • Fixed a bug with comment deletion.
  • Fixed some avatar uploading bugs.
  • Optimized parts of the backend.
  • Fixed a few bugs with CSS and JavaScript.
  • Logging in and out should no longer stop music playing (doesn't refresh the page)

As the site is still in development, there are bound to be bugs. If you find any bugs or have any suggestions, feel free to email them to us at dev@radionintendo.com.

    Many thanks for the hard work :'3
So far, the launch of Radio Nintendo has been smooth and successful, and we couldn't have done it without you! Currently, we're working very hard to fix the remaining bugs, and we would appreciate any additional feedback that you could offer.

Do you have any ideas for any extra features on the website, or maybe you have some recommendations for polishing what we've already done? Please feel free to leave a comment below!

You can also contact us on Facebook!

    (If you happen to see this) I suggest a DJ, but not like other radio stations. They won't interrupt, but people can suggest specific songs, and the DJ can play the suggested song, by reading the suggestion (If that makes sense). It shouldn't change too much, but can be a way to get more staff, I suppose. I don't know the chances of this happening though, I'm not sure how hard it would be to implement :/

      Feel free to play Radio Nintendo on your Twitch stream.
      Also, if you're giving your viewers a link to our site, that would be awesome!
