Radio Nintendo RSS Feed Nintendo Newsen-usPHP SimpleXML, 19 Aug 2017 13:01:22 +0000Happy Holidays guys, I know it's been awhile since any updates here (we've all been pretty busy) but I just wanted to wish all of you happy holidays!Sat, 24 Dec 2016 07:54:43 +0000Streaming Software Upgrade's everyone doing? Shugnussy here to bring you up to speed on some current events with the stream.<br /> <br /> After recently looking over our current streaming setup, and our desire for expansion with more content, we realized we need to change the software we are using to broadcast music on the station. Because of this, we will be messing with the stream a lot this week, and I would just like to apologize in advance in the event the stream goes down. I had to pull the stream down just now for a decent amount of time, and I honestly got a twisty feeling inside while it was down, since I know you guys like to listen. I will try my best to maximize up time this week, but I'm just letting you know now. With this software upgrade, our stream box will soon also be hosting our sister site, Radio Whirlwind. Other than that, I want to keep this update short and sweet until we're done with all the upgrades and I can boast about all the cool new features we get to show off to you guys.

These rips are provided to us by the YouTuber <a href="" target="_blank">GilvaSunner</a>, who you may have come across if you ever searched for a certain VGM track. He is known for his track record of uploading quality and complete game soundtracks to YouTube, and I'm happy to be showcasing how high quality they are to you today. Hopefully our servers are strong enough to handle such quality, but I fear we only have enough power to broadcast this high quality music today only. You can find the m3u file for the stream <a href="" target="_blank">here</a>.<br /> <br /> If for some reason you want to listen to our stream with normal quality video game soundtracks, you can select the main Radio Nintendo stream from the onsite player options menu, along with our other stations. Listening to Radio Nintendo on TuneIn and other sites will default to the normal quality stream. Please listen on site, or in your own media player using the m3u file to experience the high quality soundtracks.<br /> <br /> Stay tuned for future updates to Radio Nintendo in the coming days, and happy April Fools Days!<br /> <br /> Fri, 01 Apr 2016 07:00:27 +0000Alternate Radio Stream friends, it's Shugnussy!<br /> <br /> Today I'd like to discuss Radio Nintendo's alternate streams. As you all may know, back in Feburary we partnered with Shinesparkers to celebrate Metroid's 30th Anniversary with the internet's first Metroid Radio station. The project has been a success so far with new content coming soon. Shortly after the launch of Shinesparkers stream, we started testing a radio stream solely dedicated to music from the Super Nintendo. We didn't formally announce this feature, we just added it to our stream directory in the onsite player. In fact, I don't think we formally announced our stream directory on our onsite player either, whoops! To access it, just hit that setting button next to the listener count, and you'll see all the available streams Radio Nintendo is broadcasting on our server.<br /> <br /> We had a few listeners enjoy the SNES stream, however, starting today, I've switched the SNES stream to a Nintendo 64 stream, just to test some additional features. This is not permanent change, as we're looking to add additional stations to the site in the future. We'd like to know, what 24/7 radio station would you like to listen to? Should we have stations by console, game series, or game genre? What would you listen to? Feel free to drop a comment on this post, or talk about it with us in our chatroom. Please also let us know of any other issues you may have with the stream. I'm planning to launch 2 streams by the end of the month, with a possibility of more on the way.<br /> <br /> Before I end off this post, I'd like to say that yes, live content is returning to Radio Nintendo. We have a set of new hosts ready to bring you content. Before we do however, we are still working on our onsite shows systems, and how we will distribute podcasts to listeners who miss the live broadcast. If you would like to create live audio content on Radio Nintendo, please send me an email at <a href="" target="_blank"></a>! There is much work to be done here at Radio Nintendo, so please hang tight, and as always, keep listening to video game music!<br /> Tue, 15 Mar 2016 07:41:36 +0000
