KoopaTV's June 2016 Review Newsletter

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Our fourth June, and the first time the June newsletter is within June.

We heard there is supposed to be an official release from The Pokémon Company on July 1st, so we decided to have our June newsletter on the last day of June rather than the first day of July. Hope you don't have a problem with that.

For June 2016, we published a massive 35 articles (including this one)! That's only behind or tied with June 2015 and June 2014, at 36 and 35 articles, respectively. You can thank the massive amount of Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) coverage that KoopaTV did starting June 12! We had a great E3, and we hope you guys did as well.

But KoopaTV's June wasn't just that one E3 week. Nah, we had consistently fantastic content throughout. Everything was totally worth reading. Here's just five of our most recommended articles from June 2016, in chronological order. None of them from E3's live reaction logs: 

  1. A Plea From Bernie Sanders: Your Vote in California
  2. Voting? User Participation? Elections? RIGGED. 
  3. E3 2016: Company Conferences Tier List 
  4. Brexit Strategy: The Good Ship Britain Enters Uncharted Waters 
  5. After E3 2016, Color Us Splashed 

Well, that's my list. Other KoopaTV staffers disagreed with some of it, which, again, speaks to the strength of our exclusive content.

For a much less subjective list, let's take a list at the TOP PERFORMERS for Round 8 of the KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program, which was running from May 1 to June 29!

  1. ShinyGirafarig — 94 points
  2. Kody B. — 88 points
  3. Samantha Lienhard — 43 points
  4. Harman Smith & Bernie Sanders —  15 points
  5. (Above = Tie)
  6. Cassie Phillips — 13 points
  7. Nandin Lopez — 12 points  
ShinyGirafarig will be receiving two Amazon gift card codes for $10 each, while Kody will be receiving one $10 code. You guys will also get some of the Friends of Nintendo Humble Bundle stuff of your choice. Let me know.

It was a hard-fought battle between you two, and I think KoopaTV benefited. Speaking of hard-fought battles, we'd like to invite Senator Bernie Sanders to guest-write for KoopaTV anytime he wants to in the future. (...Oh, and Cassie, too, but she's not famous or anything and that was so last month.)

What are we gonna do for Round 9? I haven't thought about it. The Amazon gift cards for Round 8 came from me buying them at the start of May, though. Rest assured, you'll want to aim for first place because there'll be SOMETHING. Starts July 1 to August 30.

Vortexica thinks I don't advertise these enough, so here's all-capital letters:


You can do any number of things to get points in the KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program, from requesting articles, to submitting content, to referring friends! Plus, it's always helpful to share KoopaTV articles to folks, whether it be friends, social media, or forums.

Last month's May newsletter (published in June) is here. 
Next month is July's, and it's published in August. Like normal.
Last year's June 2015 newsletter is right here.
Next year's June 2017 newsletter is here. Hm, ShinyGirafarig won 1st place again...
The day after gives the promised Pokémon article.


  1. ...So close. At least I did not end up empty-handed; $10 is better than none at all. In fact, that will cover a third of Mighty Number 9! Of course, I don't care about that game, however. I'm much more interested in that Shantae code lying around, and I'd be glad to relieve you of it as well. Thanks again for the fantastic rewards program. The Koopa Kingdom is the only kingdom that I know that rewards its loyal subjects.

    1. Other kingdoms reward subjects with protection.

      Redistribution (give out free stuff by taking stuff from others) is actually a generally bad idea.

    2. Although that is true, the Koopa Kingdom is no ordinary kingdom. It is one of a kind. Besides, there's plenty of security, at least until some plumber comes around.

    3. Plumber outbreaks are a bigger concern than Zika.
