KoopaTV — November Rumination

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - I've been wanting to use that word in an article title for a while.

KoopaTV is past its 6-month existence time period now, and we're looking to finish the calendar year off strong. But before we do, let's take a look back over November.

Actually, before that, let me plug in that KoopaTV is always looking for guest writers. ...Along with permanent new additions to our staff. Guest writers can come from all walks of life, but if you'd like to be a member of the KoopaTV staff, you gotta fit some basic requirements. Including having AIM (which is free), being a big videogame fan, and being able to write well. Oh, and we'd like for you to appreciate the core essence and mission of KoopaTV, but conflict can also be appreciated.

There was an unusually diverse amount of article types in November. Of the 21 articles in the month (the least of any month so far, but hey, that's how the calendar worked out), four were "Artistic Corner"-worthy, one was the predecessor of this article, three were interviews, only one was "General", and twelve were actual Gaming Commentary — four of those were our AIM logs. Compare those article make-ups with other months and you'll get how that's diverse.

The "We have some things in planning. Not gonna disclose 'em 'cause that ruins surprises." I mentioned from last month hasn't happened yet. There's a reason for that: Some articles had to be published before those could be started. ...Those articles are published now. The "Well one of the things I'm going to do is make the site slightly easier to navigate, which will include things like links to the previous/next part in articles divided into parts or those that are obvious sequels. Those will be rolled out sometime soon." actually has happened and will continue to happen.

Time for my Top 5 recommended articles from November. As usual, I'm going to say every article is worth reading. So you can't go wrong in any way, but here are 5 of the best from a journalistic point of view. ...Or from a "this is particularly important from a KoopaTV narrative" perspective, since KoopaTV IS about a narrative. Chronological order here.

  1. Give Me Liberty, Or Give Me Swapnote
  2. Iwata's Concept of Price Value Vs. Ace Attorney 
  3. Happy Birthday, Wii U.
  4. Console Wars and Us Vs. Them
  5. (Boss 5-Final) Trayvon Tyson's Punch-Out!! Strategy Guide!
Yeah, that's right. A strategy guide got into the Top 5. That guide happens to be a critical piece of KoopaTV's narrative.
