Welcome to KoopaTV's newsletter, the last one to talk about 2015. I'm not going to cover the whole year here, just December 2015. What's the point of talking about the whole year? That's bound to just be an average, and regression to the mean will say it was a "meh" average year. Whatever. Smaller time periods are gonna be more interesting than that.
I will say, however, that 2015 was the first year for KoopaTV where we published an article every single weekday of the year.
And you betcha that December 2015 was interesting. So we're gonna get headings again, yippee. I think we'll go in sort of an order of “things that happened” and progress to “what's happening now and what's coming up”. That sound good? Then get past the page break, read more, and here we go! Because we got things to address that you really want to know about covering every aspect of the site, with tons of features.
Top 5 Recommended Articles of December 2015
Every article is totally worth reading, and here are the top 5 that are in the upper echelon. These are in chronological order:
- Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon Saved the Whole Pokémon Franchise
- Personal Experience: System Transfer to New Nintendo 3DS XL
- The Turf WAR ON SQUIDMAS
- Digitised Manuals Means Less People Read Them
- Suing Videogame Companies for Becoming Addicted?
Capture the Confederate Flag has been released!
That's right! KoopaTV's long-awaited 2015 videogame is out. I know we implied to our Japanese friends that it'd be a platformer based on ISIS, but whatever.
Play it here!
We'll obviously promote this thing hard. You can help us by playing it and sharing your feedback. ...And sharing it. The game. It has a lot of great KoopaTV themes.
Besides, you'll be handsomely rewarded if you do so, which leads me to talking about...

Here are the results for Round 5 of the KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program! It was the round with the most activity. You can see that from our spreadsheet results and compare 'em to the other rounds!

New KoopaTV Feedback Forms and Quiz available!
The responses to Part I of the KoopaTV Feedback Form and Quiz were very positive, so it's time for Part II! You'll get big points in the KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program and lots of fun if you do Part II between now and February 28. Check them out here.
Remember, these things don't have a time limit, and you can treat it like a scavenger hunt. Maybe you can tell, but it's easier to come up with feedback questions than quiz questions.

Next month's newsletter is here but it's less cool.
We're officially at the point where the only difference between this article's title and last year's article title is the number.
Next year's 2016 article is also the same, besides the number. ...The content is almost the same, too.
