Shinesparkers Radio now LIVE!


Hello there! My name is Darren and I'm bringing a brand new station and show to Radio Nintendo called Shinesparkers Radio! This is the first dedicated Metroid radio station created to mark the 30th anniversary of the Metroid franchise. You will be able to hear music from thirty years of Metroid, including remixes and arrangements from albums such as Harmony of a Hunter and Metroid Metal. Over time, we plan to build on our music library and add even more music for your enjoyment. We also plan to host a series of live shows, so I hope you'll tune in for those too!

Check out more information here and follow us on Twitter for the latest updates!

    Hey Jonez
    We're currently testing a third station with Radio Nintendo. After our recent feedback survey we saw that the SNES was the favourite console of a lot of our listeners, so for the next week we'll be testing the RN: SNES stream. If people listen to it and our server handles the load well (which is looking good so far!) we can add more themed stations! The main Radio Nintendo station still plays music from all consoles and that will never change.
    We'll also look into those bugs!
    Thanks

      The more feedback you get, the better the site becomes :)

    I have seen RN has 3 stations now: here is a little bit of feedback for the next update:

    - Can the main page has a feature where you can select which station to play? Since at the right corner only the default radio can be selected.
    - The chat in the pop-out player has a bug, where the last said thing hides beneath the input field.

    Just a question: RN & RN: SNES -> Does this mean that the main channel will no longer play SNES ?

      I added the ability to change the station (click on the slider, if only the default station is showing, refresh your page) and fixed the alignment issue with the player chat.

It's time for our first stream update of the new year. We've added several brand new soundtracks to the stream including the most recently released Final Fantasy Explorers.

RN Upkeep Survey! Give us your feedback!

Hey there,

Over the last few months, we've been talking a lot about future plans for Radio Nintendo. We've been providing you with updates and additional features that have been adding over the last couple of months along with updates that will be coming to you in the future. There are a lot of things that we're not very sure about however. This is why we've put up a survey that gives you, the listener, the opportunity to give us your feedback in order to help improve Radio Nintendo. In survey is very simple and it will give enough information to help get us started working on changes to our server, site, and social media feeds. We hope you take the time to fill the survey out and we'll be sure to keep you updated on the feedback you've provided us.

You can click right here to go the survey over on Google Forms.

Thanks so much for your support and I hope you're exciting to see our plans in 2016!

Responsive Update

Greetings!
I have come to deliver some updates for the holidays!

This update features a bit of a change to the RN design allowing the site to scale more fluidly to varying display sizes, this will be especially apparent if you are on a smaller device such as a phone or tablet.

Aside from the responsive design I have moved RN to a newer version of baconcore which as usual, is full of bug fixes, optimizations etc, some of them include:

  • Search has been overhauled quite a bit.
  • Parts of the framework have been made easier to work with, allowing for quicker development of new features.
  • Some templates have been improved.
  • Started removal of hardcoded text in some templates.

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.

Staffing Changes

Hey everyone, it's Shugnussy again!

Today I would like to say that Des is no longer part of the management team here at Radio Nintendo. He'll still be around however, if you want to say hi, talk about anime, or lend him any gun ammo. Radio Nintendo will continue to be managed by Bacon and Shugnussy for an indefinite amount of time in the foreseeable future.

So what's next? Well we got a few emails from content creators expressing interest for more live shows, and I'm happy to say Radio Nintendo will be relaunching live content this month. After that, we have a few more surprises to talk about. I'll keep everyone posted on Radio Nintendo news right here, so keep watching!

    Is it more preferable to give live broadcasts a go next month in the new year? Makes it more fitting don't you think? Unless there's some kind of Christmas going-on to kickstart it all.
