KoopaTV's April 2017 Review Newsletter

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - The magic of 100 days.

Fun fact: We have no idea what we're going to do for our fourth anniversary coming up really soon. Maybe we should figure that out.

Anyway, want to know what happened last month? Well, we're here for you.

In fact, we're here for you all of the time, so check by... often! Perhaps even...everyday? Well, with this story, you should:

KoopaTV Article Production To Be Increased 166.66%!

After the unfortunate news from three months ago about KoopaTV's article production being cut 40%, we're pleased to announce that Sierra Leone and President Donald John Trump have made up with one another. This is one of many examples over the past few months about President Donald John Trump changing his mind (or “pivoting”) on something, and for this example, we're glad.

President Donald John Trump is also putting off the construction and funding for THE WALL, meaning it won't be much trouble for KoopaTV to be able to export our articles into the United States (our main audience). That means we're going to return to our 5-articles-per-week format starting immediately! And not a moment too soon — there is so much stuff to talk about.

Top 3 Articles of April 2017

But FIRST, let's go over stuff we talked about over the month of April!

First of all, every article is worth reading.

Second of all, here's our top three recommended articles from April in chronological order:
  1. When Kickstarters Get Kicked In The Ass (Part 4) 
  2. Gamified Tax Filings? GameStop's Re-Fun Your Refund 
  3. It's Time For Adventure, Diamond and Pearl! 
Third of all... I didn't have to pick those three. There were good other alternatives.

Fourth, since we'll have that article output increase, that means next review newsletter we'll go back to having a top 5.

KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program Round 13 Results!

...Well, audience participation sucked for these two months. Maybe having more articles will fix that. I'll get to fixes in a moment, BUT HERE ARE THE RESULTS.

  1. Lheticus Videre — 55 points
  2. Kody B. — 29 points
  3. Ray — 15 points
Pretty lopsided. Regardless, Lheticus Videre will be receiving a $10 Nintendo eShop code for his participation. He claims to have already used it.

Announcing Round 14 of the KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program!

Round 14 will last from TODAY (May 1) to the END OF JUNE (June 29, 11:59 PM Eastern).

As you can figure out from that, this round overlaps with E3 2017 (the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017), the major event of the year. As is... customary, we're having a special round to celebrate E3. That means there will be TWO prizes this time: A $25 Amazon code (default prize for first place) and a $10 Nintendo eShop code (default prize for second place).

Plus, between you and me, if you win and you want some of my unused codes from the Humble Friends of Nintendo Bundle from a year ago, I can throw those in for first, second, and hell, even third place too. What's unused? Pretty much everything except for Shantae and the Pirate's Curse. Whoops. So much for me being a prolific gamer. (There is a possibility that that might be incorrect information.)

New Way To Earn Points!

We're going to be having a new category of point-earning called Corrections. Since KoopaTV keeps calling out other outlets for their FAKE NEWS, we, of course, wish to make sure that we're flawless on our end.

As a sort of... expansion of the Truth Points, if you call us out on inaccurate information (ranging from incorrect facts to the butchering of the English language), we'll correct the record and also reward you points. For full details (including instances that won't get you points), check out the dedicated page on the KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program.

Part 10 of KoopaTV's Feedback Forms and Quizzes!

KoopaTV Quiz Part X and KoopaTV Feedback Form Part X are now available. Personally, I'm thankful that I only need to use one Roman numeral for these.

If you have ideas for what the heck KoopaTV should do for its 4th year running, let KoopaTV know in the comments section. Please share KoopaTV to people, too. ...The site could use new blood.

KoopaTV decided to celebrate its fourth anniversary with food.


  1. I'm super excited for the new Corrections category--it'll make it even EASIER for me to win! :P Seriously, that kind of thing is totally my forte. Also, what do you have against Roman numerals Ludwig?

    1. ...Are you implying that we make mistakes often?

      Roman numerals are a pain to keep track of and they keep adding letters and stuff, especially crap like how 09 is IX. It's barely a step above tally marks.

    2. No, I'm implying that if you DO, I will be excellent at catching them. Those of the typo variety, I more mean. It'd be harder for me to fact-check you guys.

    3. Well, maybe you'll find more factually incorrect things in articles from non-Ludwig authors.
      I run a tight ship. That includes grammar.

  2. I should be more active this round since finals are coming up soon.

  3. This is now my favorite newsletter ever.

    Is article production still high or has it been cut. There was a wee bit of a slump before/after your vacation, but now everything seems to be back to normal. Better actually. Irregardless, did you know that irregardless is a real word now? Although, the computer still doesn't see it as a legitimate word, but won't let me forget to capitalize Kirby or Metroid. It's in the dictionary and Teachers all across the world are writing in agony. Poor saps!

    1. "Better"? It's 5 articles a week, which is wot it said back here.

      I dunno, there's not much going on in this newsletter unless you really dig the President Donald John Trump section THAT much.
