Give KoopaTV Your Requests!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - For your greater participation.

Not that we're out of ideas or anything, but I recently read a report that we should implement a requests section on KoopaTV. So here it is.

Have any ideas for new articles, investigations, features to implement, or stuff to do? We're servicing you, so if you would like anything on our part, just tell us here in the comments section. You may also e-mail an author via the Contact Us page if you don't want the rest of the world to know of your request.

Request anything about anything. Preferably game-related in some way, given the nature of the site. Creative requests are cool too. Particularly if they're exciting, although what excites us might be different from what excites a "normal" person. Restrictions basically include that if it involves spending money, we won't do it unless we would spend that money anyway, or you give us that money. So no reviewing the latest PlayStation 4 game none of us have. We would be happy to live-react to its cutscenes, though!

Ludwig also absolutely hates giving any legitimacy to rumours, so he will decline anything that involves reacting to one. KoopaTV will not do any request that involves doing something illegal.

We're like your intellectual mercenaries. Except we don't get paid by you. Unless you want to pay us. That'd be cool. Intellectual in the sense that if we don't already have an opinion on something, we'll be glad to research it and get an opinion.

Check the comments section to see which articles exist because of requests.

This page has the most number of comments of any page on the site, so as a result, the comments section now has two pages.

Click here for Page 1 (comments 1–200)
Click here for Page 2 (comments 201–present)


Feel free to request something from a specific staff member, and remember the best place to do it is in the comments section of this article! Although we look at the comments to every article on the site equally.


Writing requests is a rewarded activity through the KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program!

  1. Swearing in video games. Some find it offensive. Some find it necessary for realism. Some only dislike certain words, e.g. the f-word. Some respond to the question of, "How bad is the language in this game?" with "Go back and play with your toys, you big baby!" (some choose to insult Nintendo in the same breath).

    My request: take this topic and do whatever you please with it.

    1. Hm.

      So, swearing from in-game (the writers), not swearing by players to one another, right?

      Thanks for the request. I'll consider it.

      They literally say it's scheduled maintenance, which they do occasionally. Every company that has a server undergoes scheduled maintenance, to make sure there aren't problems in the server and it's running smoothly.

  27. Another idea I have is your opinion on the NA trend of Splatfests with the less popular having a current win streak. The current theory is skilled players flock to the less popular side to not be mixed in with less experienced kids, have a higher chance to be macthed with other higher skilled players, not waste time on fighting the same side that does not add to the total skill score and match up is much faster. I read somewhere that this theory started with the Roller Coasters win because of the major roller coasters having the "you must be this tall to ride" rule which usually would limit younger amusement park goers. Then it moved on to Decepticons win which was theorized that children are more innocent about life and will pick the heroes' side while cynical adults will have less enthusiasm about the goodness of life and therefore pick the Decepticons' side. Those two winners were the less popular sides but I don't think it most players who considered themselves skilled chose that on purpose then due to thinking it necessarily will have more skill. I think what really started the trend of purposely avoiding the side that is popular with kids is the results from Cars vs Planes. Like the first two examples I have given, I don't think skilled players purposely sided with cars to avoid the kids. Kids normally would not have access to driving a car or piloting a plane anyway. But after the most dramatic win by Cars in Splatfest history so far back then which still only had the 4x multiplier, people really started to take the theory seriously. I remember on a site I sometimes go to I read people were already piling on for Team Pirates.

    It's amusing how far the fanbase come from the complaining about Popularity carrying for Team Dogs in NA. Now they want skills to be nerfed but if nerfed too much that would only encourage bandwagoning to the popular side and who will care about actually playing well?

    Since I wrote all that why would I not write a guest post? Well I have no idea what to say that wasn't already said by another. Maybe the idea about Cars vs Planes results catapulting people to purposely chose the less popular side is mine but I am sure someone also came up with it. Maybe you will come up with interesting observations not many thought of yet as well as ideas about how to fix the issue.

  29. Have another request: Paper Mario on the Wii U COULD be coming. Talk about your thoughts on their decision to release it on the Wii U,since Nintendo is moving on to their NeXt console, how rumors, with as much evidence to back them up, could still be even the slightest fake, how things are over-hyped (actually, I think you already talked about that), and most importantly, if this rumor is the real deal, how this game shouldn't be Sticker Star.

      http://www.koopatv.org/2014/10/smash-wii-u-this-november-those-leaks.html Maybe I should plainly state this in the article body for the Requests page because lots of people want me to react to rumours.

      If I wrote an article for every rumour, well, one is KoopaTV would have nothing but that. Two, we'd basically turn into a trashy tabloid. We have no way of verifying these things! At least if KoopaTV DOES make something up (our own "rumours") it's for parody and you really shouldn't take it seriously.

      But yeah, writing stuff on judging Nintendo's decisions for something that doesn't even officially exist seems... presumptuous.

      Delete
    3. Right, KoopaTV stands for "Truth and Levity".

      Instead of taking something that hasn't even begin (or exist, for that matter) yet, how about discussing the end of additional content support for both Smash and Splatoon (yay, transitions)? Describe how developers can't continue supporting games, how Splatoon gave us so much content for free, while Smash gave us so many user-requested characters, and how beneficial it will be for the developers and the players! No more balancing patches, no more updating teir lists and adapting to characters or weapons, and how this gives Nintendo the flexibility to work on new projects!

  31. Let me make a spin on my last request. NA Splatfest current running streak of the less popular teams winning is a lesson for how minority views do matter. A bonus is if JP or EU has a third Splatfest in a row where the less popular team wins then you can add on to a previous article of yours that had discussed how the US influences other countries: http://www.koopatv.org/2015/10/europe-cats-vs-dogs-splatfest-american-leadership.html

      Also JP results had the most lolworthy skill differences results.

  33. Let's talk about conserving money on the eShop (or anywhere for that matter).
    Example: A guy who doesn't go to the stores frequently nor has a bank account gets a $20 eShop code to save for the inevitable Mother 3. Meanwhile, Nintendo just released the original Pokèmon games for $10! Mother 3 just can't be at the same price as the original Earthbound ($10)! How can the person fight the temptation? Or is it actually best to give in?
    Give your thoughts on keeping a budget, what's best to get on the eShop, and how to resist! It should be very insightful!

    Thoughts on this? Do you think The fandom will be bigger and bigger?

    1. (That is nooooooooot a url you should be giving. Don't send a Google search result — send the actual source.
      Try giving: http://gamingbolt.com/nintendo-looking-at-bringing-undertale-to-wii-u

      Also dat Spanish Google url. :p)

      See, there's that rumour thing I was talking about. That story wasn't "Nintendo is trying to bring Undertale to Wii U". That's the headline to get you to look at it.

      All the information really was is that Nintendo contacted Toby Fox about something.

      Heck, Toby said it best: “It’s surreal that it’s newsworthy that a Nintendo rep tweeted at me.”

      As in, just the act of a Nintendo employee tweeting at Toby does not mean that OMG UNDERTALE IS COMING TO WII U. It could be regarding any number of things, and many of those could even be non-work-related.

      In general, I think numerically, yeah, Undertale's total fanbase is going to keep getting bigger. I think in terms of fanbase activity, it's already lower than it was at the end of 2015.

      https://www.google.com/trends/explore#q=Undertale&date=today%2012-m&cmpt=q&tz=Etc%2FGMT%2B4

      ^ It peaked, and then dropped, if you think Google web searches is a good proxy for fan activity.

  36. A certain plumber and cherry chasing dot muncher made an appearance at the Rio Olympics 2016 closing ceremony: http://www.theverge.com/2016/8/21/12580456/watch-mario-olympics-japan-tokyo-prime-minster

    Time to write about it if you have not started. I am not sure you were stilll paying attention to the olympics.

      Do you want us to write about it, or do you want you to write about it if you'll submit something?

    3. ...The fact that I just linked you information about guest articles and you're still asking me here about where to send it, coupled with your sub-standard English skills — and you say you already wrote an article — forces me to conclude that whatever you wrote will probably be undesirable for this website.

    6. Lol. Speaking of shutting down, did you see the article that Huffington Post deleted? http://archive.is/V5Mkj
      The author was also terminated as a result. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHhNr5jeTIw&feature=youtu.be&t=1s

    7. I just want to say that I've always wanted to put the Huffington Post on KoopaTV's media blacklist, but Rawk insisted not to.

      ...But no, I didn't see it. As an article, it's kinda crummily-written, to be honest. Doesn't mean it should go WOOSH.

  38. I've seen people liking or disliking the 8-bit looking indie games. Indie platformers if they want to make a retro looking game may try to make their games in the style of 8-bit or 16-bit (I am not a tech person so I don't know if games like Freedom Planet fully stick to the guidelines of 16-bit but to the untrained eye it does look like a game from the 16-bit era. There are modern 3D indie platformers like Yooka Laylee but would an indie game that mimics the stle of 32-bit or 64-bit 3d games as in developers purposely making low resolution polygons possibly sell well?

  39. Here's something worth considering: YouTube is telling us that opinions are bad on the Internet.
    This isn't just concerned with YouTube Gaming, but the entirety of YouTube. All of this qualifies as "Contriversial Topics," so my request is: What is your stance on this, and why do you support said stance? What are the beneficial and discouraging elements of YouTube's new monetization policy?

  40. Let me make it official. I request a review of Color Splash. xD

    ReplyDelete
  41. You are probably going to do this anyway but I suggest an article on the "advertising" in Nintendo of America's Twitter comparing Splatoon to Paper Mario: Color Splash. People hated the "LOL" part and comparing Squid Sisters to a paint can when Nintendo talked about memorable characters. Never knew a character saying silly comments and a character reacting sarcastically to silly comments with some occasional mix up in the formula in Splatfest dialogue is the pinnacle of writing that it is offensive to compare to Huey.

      Not written by me, though.

      By non-biased, do you mean "favourable"?

  43. Is it better for the Pokémon company to release fewer new Pokémon with each generation as to not run to nearly 1000 overall in the next few generations (and maybe focus in quality over quantity/less is more) and at the same time mix the generations of Pokémon in the regional Pokédex, or try to have at least 100+ each gen and try to focus on newer Pokémon like gen 5?

  44. Swapnote is back as Swapdoodle. But it has paywalls. It looks like lessons can be bought like some sort of Art Academy light but with all the payments it will be even more than an Art Academy game in the long run.

    Write about how older games/apps were superior and had far more for free, only to be killed off and turned to be a money grabbing machine.

  45. Well Nintendo apparently shut down two games. Maybe an article about fangames vs games inspired by said games would make a good article. Freedom Planet started as a Sonic fangame and then formed its own identity and became well known enough in its own right without being forgotten as yet another Sonic clone.

  47. What are your thoughts on video games considered for a console but then cancelled and moved on to the successor console. Inspiration is Yooka-Laylee being cancelled on Wii U to Switch. Shouldn't the developers care about the backers who thought it would be on Wii U as there were backers who contributed because they were told there will be a Wii U version?

    Also not a kickstarted game but Nintendo did the same thing with Starfox 2 being cancelled for SNES to make it Starfox 64 for N64, Earthbound 64 becoming a game for the GBA, and probably many other examples like this.

  48. While this is definitely inevitable, I'd like to see a "Stay Safe" guide for the fellow midnighters/Day Oners.

    This guide could also include how it isn't always a good idea to be a Day Oner, showing the Wii U as a great example, and the Nintendo 3DS's eventual price-cut.

    There would be a ton of information available, even if you've never camped for a console!

    1. I was not gonna inevitably write a Stay Safe guide. That only happened for Pokémon GO because safety tips were already provided by TPCi and I found it laughable.

      But I will obviously dedicate this Friday to the Nintendo Switch's launch, and I will provide reasons why I'm not being a Day Oner.

      I guess I'll throw in a safety tip or two.

  49. With an official Metroid remake coming and the fanmake one cancelled, how about an article on the pros and cons of a fan remake versus an official remake. Like a pro is fans know what most fans like but con is they might not take risks that would anger the fans while an official remake might upset the fans if it is not like the original with shinier new graphics, they remove loved glitches and not getting rid of certain things that annoyed the fans in the original game.

  50. Apparently SJWs are angry about the Mexican depiction in Super Mario odyssey. My request is what would make them upset at this but never an outrage with any of the Punch-Out! titles?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. As written, I'm going to decline the request because SJWs were angry about the Punch-Out!! titles, but they just didn't have as big a platform as they do now when they released (last title was 2009), so it was less noticeable.

      SJWs are outraged by whatever is trending at the moment (because that's what gets them the most attention), so they aren't reflective unless something old is trendy again. That leaves dedicated videogame sites to muse about these matters.

      1UP.com apparently called Punch-Out!! one of the 5 most racist videogames. It's in a bunch of other "Top XX" listicles on the Internet on gaming sites, though a lot of those are also broken links now 'cause they're old.
      Honestly, I can't tell if a lot of these older published articles on the subject are by proto-SJWs or if they're just satirical pieces. Because this kind of thinking used to be just satire or on the fringiest of places but now it's more mainstream... (Well, still fringe. Let's keep it there.)

  51. Obvious request that you probably are typing about as we speak about Star Fox 2 on SNES Classic being the only legit way to play it and you have to spend $300+ for it (ahahahaha getting it at retail price).

  54. I researched a bit on Sonic Mania and it seems to be a promoted fan game by Sega. A very different approach to Nintendo shutting down fan games. Would a comparison of these two approaches make a good article?

      I would LIKE game developers to continually make simple, addicting-to-the-medium games in every generation so we won't keep having to go back far.
