Two Bloggers Wanted For My Nintendo News

new_super_mario_bros_2_mario_flying

I’m looking for two enthusiastic individuals to help support Alba and myself by covering the latest Nintendo news and rumours. Ideally, I’m looking to get someone from the US and someone from the UK. If you currently run a WordPress blog, or have experience blogging or writing, and have lots of free time to spare on a voluntary basis, then please contact me with your site.

Cheers,

- Sickr

      1. I run my own blog on WordPress and the top sites like this one and mine actually do get income from advertisements through what WP calls WordAds.

        A decent amount if income, too.

        1. So you and Michael Pachter play in the same side of the field: those who are paid to spread out foolish statements and incorrect facts.

          Like your classical and blatant point: “I’m never wrong!”.

          In fact, you and Michael Pachter (your guru, actually) are very smart guys.

                1. You yourself admitted that your spouting foolishness for money. And just because you got lucky on a few occasions does not make you a pro analyst.But hey,what can i say,i don’t know how an analyst job works and i’m not gonna go deep on unfamiliar territories.

                  1. Yeah man, it’s not luck and it’s not foolishness. I was once like all of you, actually I knew more than all of you combined, I was very hardcore, you’d love me back then.

                    Then I noticed all this knowledge didn’t help me with predicting the market right, so I started studying, economicis, behavior, found smarter people than me, and now I can see the market moves much more clearly than when I was a hardcore.

                    The downside is the classic Plato’s Cave complex, the hardcore see me as an intruder, trying to destroy their world. Anyone saying their world is not real, is an enemy, even if he’s right.

                    1. And this is the very reason why i don’t go deep into this. Well good luck on whatever the hell your doing and stay classy.

        1. I registered 2 people today ! check if one of them was you :) . i am struggling to get online with my wiiu at the moment and am playing a LOT of monster hunter ultimate with my bro and my mate on 3DS and Wiiu linked up local. and playing Need for speed when I’m not playing MHU.

          I will add you as soon as i get the chance !

    1. I think its voluntary, im good, although I do blogging, Im good with sending them news or telling them news …. … .. .

    1. Reggie actually was basically a CEO at Pizza Hut before he got the job at Nintendo, he toured my store several times before.

      1. If your good at something never do it for free…this is for people who have nothing, but time on their hands…I personally would never do it ( if I could write), but good luck to those who will.

        1. I see what you mean. But, still, there are some people who do what they do because they are altruist, or because they find a personal recompense in making people assisted, or whatever.

      1. This seems like a good opportunity for people; although I have no experience it would be a great thing to do. I’m still quite excited however to see what the site will be like with these two new bloggers!

      1. I’m from… well, another country ;)

        about luigi’s mansion: I simply love that game. It not only reinvents the original game mechanics, but also reinvent itself on every corner. It’s already my favorite 3DS title.

        Also, the game have more replay value than it’s predecessor, on the single player campain, every mission has a rank, so you might want to comeback and score better, and there’s tons of collectables (specially hidden ones)

        The multiplayer is realy fun, it’s not as great as a mario kart multiplayer, but it sure has great value.

        If you like Nintendo and the first luigi’s mansion game, you’ll not turn off your 3DS for a while.

        1. I know XD This game is awesome lol. I’ve never found myself laughing more in a game. And you know there are some scary moments in the game, but I’ve only started on the second mansion.

          1. I agree, the game is hilarious! Also, the graphics are better than any portable game I’ve ever played. I’m not only talking about resolution or poligon counts which can be found better on PSVita, I’m talking about the overrall experience, when the game concept (horror movies inspiration + comedy) meets top of the line animations, expressions and lightning effects that adds a LOT to the fun. It’s really complex for a portable game.

        2. ya i just bought it because i loved the original, its good so far and im stuck, haha, there is some difficult puzzles, that is good considering nintendo games now days are pretty easy, i think im stuck on mission 1-5 haha, well i got sorta stuck before but found a way, you just have to think and sorta look more closely

          1. Yep, there’s some hard puzzles that I got stuck multiple times. it’s very rewarding when you find the solution. Right now, I’m at the 4th mansion.

            1. yea next level games was have supposed to of done a good job, it would be cool if they made eternal darkness 2 for wii u, since it keeps getting trademarked and there supposed to be working on a really secret title according to them, seems like a good fit

                1. yea it would show that nintendo is really trying to get the core back, and that they dont only offer kid friendly non dark games, im actually playing eternal darkness and am getting closer to beating it, its a pretty cool game and is awesome. im really curious how and what direction the wii u will be, and if they can get more companies to work for them like this and build better relationships and get good support from companies that are good but dont get any attention from anyone

                  1. I think the Wii U concept is different from the Wii. It might get some casual games, as much as every console gets, but it will stick with the core gamers and Nintendo fans. Nintendo surely will reveal new IPs for the console (where’s the rumored anguish souls game?) and I think It will have great third party support. We need to be patient, because it still have to stabilish as a good platform for thirds, but I’m sure the next games will drive the sales. Nintendo needs to be agressive on software this E3 too.

  1. lol, in todays world you don’t need to own your own site. all you have to have is facebook or twitter. Let them blog for ya. I on the other hand have opera and twitter. I hate Facebook. No i am not interested, just pointing out some good suggestions. Opera, or http://www.opera.com has it’s own blogging site, and all you need to do is become a member of opera, which is free. I see nintendo, and tons of other blogs being advertised on there. To get a feed from them is go to http://www.opera.com and, click on the RSS link. Almost any web service today has blogging.

  2. I can’t help you out there guys as I don’t have my own blog or any experience doing so.

    I think it would be cool if you guys posted game reviews from your loyal viewers , maybe had a separate section for them :) . Just a suggestion !
    I would happily write a review once in a while and enjoy reading other peoples as well as Alba and sikr’s.

    1. Yes, I would be interested if I were able to write reviews or opinion on happenings in the industry, but I doubt they’d ever be interested in that side of journalism. I don’t have professional experience in writing other than patient care reports and financial analysis reports however.

      Hopefully they’ll find some decent people to provide them some quality work rather than the current cut-and-paste tabloidism.

    2. I doubt I’m the only one who isn’t interested in reading game reviews written by fanboys. When I decide on reading a review, I make sure it’s on a site which is not focused on a single company. I don’t think any of the people wanting to write reviews for this site is capable of writing a completely objective, unbiased review for games of series like Super Mario or The Legend of Zelda. I definitely do not support this suggestion.

    1. Headline: “Fisher Price’s Wii U is failing to sell in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

      Yet another country where the big N is failing to sell its cheap plastic products. Here are the sales figure:

      PS3 – 2 units sold.
      Xbox 360 – 2 units sold.
      Wii U – 1 unit sold.

      Do you think this is a sign that Nintendo should stop making hardware and go full software this generation with their rehashed games or should the Wii U have a price-cut? Leave your comments below.

      Thanks, Ness.

    2. I don’t know many 8 year olds that can run a WordPress blog, or have experience blogging or writing. Do you?

  3. I’d have to say that I really appreciate what you, [Sickr] and Alba do. It’s pretty cool that you two take your time off and constantly post Nintendo News. Also if I could choose good candidate, I would choose Simply G because he has experience with this. Alas, that’s his choice.
    I hope that you will find good bloggers to help you two with this site. Good Luck :)

    1. How about Furious Francis, well he has his own news site at Playeressence so that probably won’t be likely. :/

      1. Ha! Thanks. :)

        As I replied to Anubis’ comment, I would have loved to help if I had the time. Unfortunately, my time is being heavily consumed at the moment.

        With that said, even if you guys don’t have experience writing for a site or running a blog, I always recommend applying for positions that you want; You never know. Just demonstrate why you would be an asset.

        ;)

        1. Anytime. I was wondering where were you. Sad you can’t apply for it! Although I don’t agree with 100% of all what you say – but who said that everyone here should agree with others all the time, right? – you sir have my respect by the clear and well-balanced points you usually do.

    2. I would actually like to contribute, but I don’t have the time unfortunately. Hopefully MNN gets some help as I know that it’s a lot of work to run a site.

      1. man that sucks, you were the first person i was thinking of after i read the article. you’re mature and know alot of facts. if you ever have the time you should reconsider.

  4. I’d like to do it, but I don’t have any previous writings for reference.

    I’d be more interested in bringing feature articles to the site, rather than just splitting the work load of posting every tiny bit of news. Features like reviews and top 10s, sensible opinion pieces on the state of the industry and things of that nature.

      1. Tis indeed an option. I had one for music many years ago.

        But I don’t really have the time to run a site myself these days. I’d only be looking to contribute a single article per week or something. Not really enough to keep a new blog going on it’s own.

        Sickr/Alba would ideally like someone who could commit more time, and are probably just looking for more people to post news, rather than features.

        So I’d like to contribute, but realistically, I’m probably not the best choice.

  5. I’d do some, so I’ll try and volunteer, as I’m in the US and I come daily. I also have the time for research so I’ll sign up.

    1. It’s fun at first, but it can get tedious sometimes and your brain can get dry from coming up with things to post. (that is from my personal experience) If its a news site however, then it seems to be a bit easier.

  6. I don’t have a wordpress blog thingy besides this account, but I’ve been blogging for 2, almost 3 years at 1up.com and I’m from the U.S. sickr, if you want, I’ll send you a link to some of my blogs from 1up to see if you’re interested in me writing for MNN.

  7. One more thing, 1up is shutting down soon so if I send you a link, check em out soon cause not sure when exactly the site will go under.

  8. Used to have a blog. Top 10, speculation, some news, opinion, it was cool for a while. I went on vacation for 2 months, no Internet. Came back and no one read me stuff so I don’t bother anymore. Im not interested, though I’m curios to see who it shall be.

  9. Unfortunately I’m too busy commanding my troops in the northern region of Europe…

    Just no Xbots or Sony Units…

      1. You definately should, the southern region is not well taken care of so they need our support…

        My region is really a more Microsoft territory…
        Slaves to the Leaders of Microsoft…

  10. I can do so if you give me instructions about what areas I should cover as I do not want us to double post things, but I do live in Sweden, is the post still accessable?

  11. I have time, but i’m not from US or UK, i don’t have a blog either(personal/work only, so doesn’t count), my english is not that good; but if someday you want some nintendo love in spanish, let me know. (=

  12. Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
    My blog covers a lot of the same subjects as yours
    and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by
    the way!

  13. Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
    site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  14. Howdy! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out
    and say I truly enjoy reading your articles. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same topics?
    Thank you so much!

  15. I think this is one of the most significant information for me.
    And i am glad reading your article. But want to remark on few general things, The site style is perfect, the articles is really nice : D.
    Good job, cheers

  16. It is perfect time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy. I’ve
    read this post and if I could I want to suggest you few interesting
    things or tips. Perhaps you can write next articles referring
    to this article. I wish to read more things about it!

  17. of course like your web site however you have to take a look at the spelling on several of
    your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very
    troublesome to tell the reality on the other hand I will definitely come back again.

  18. I was recommended this website by my cousin. I’m now not certain whether this post is written through him as no one else recognize such special approximately my difficulty. You’re
    wonderful! Thanks!

  19. Nice post. I used to be checking constantly this
    blog and I am inspired! Very useful info particularly the closing
    phase :) I deal with such information much. I used to be seeking this
    certain info for a very lengthy time. Thanks and good luck.
