    • I finally got around to finishing Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn and I have to say I had a lot of fun with it. I don't mind the crude, verging on racist, humor and the play style is reminiscent of early 90s beat 'em ups. There's even a move where you hit A to land a size 22 kick that launches the enemy straight into the screen just like TMNT IV: Turtles in Time. Shaq Fu never takes itself seriously, poking fun at crowd funding and the game itself. All of the old beat 'em up tropes are present and accounted for; endless enemies, random things in the background and foreground to smash, the odd object you can use as a weapon until it breaks, etc. At $20 USD in the eshop I think that the price is a bit steep for the amount of game time you'll get from it, if you play it on easy you can walk through this game in one sitting and I don't see much replay value in it. Harder difficulties does make it a longer process though. There is a DLC pack called "Barack Fu"  that opens up a new story line where you play as President Obama, the humor continues as one of "Dirty Barry's" moves lets you call in a "Peace Prize" drone strike. Nintendo's eShop says it released on June 5, but I can't seem to find it. The game's website says that physical copies come with a code to download a "bonus game" later this month. I haven't seen what that game is yet but I would suspect that it is the DLC so if you really want to fight as Barack Obama the physical version might save you a bit of money. Overall I give Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn a solid 5 out of 7 Size 22 Reebok Pumps. Pick it up if you find it on sale, and you enjoy old school beat 'em ups (think TMNT IV style with some off color humor and a stupid plot).

Hey guys and girls!

Hope you like the new site as much as I do! As always I love you guys 'n' girls and I'm super fortunate to have such an awesome small community! I haven't been around as much as I could have this past year and I'm sorry :( A 'rare Buzz has appeared' will no longer be the running joke I hope! xD;)

I want to express how grateful I am to those of you who've stuck by our community (even when things were slow) - posting news, reviews, replying to messages and threads. Believe it or not I do come on every day and see the things you guys post! and I am blessed you choose to come on and and hang out and share your love of Nintendo, gaming and other things. So again, a HUGE thanks to all our members and especially some of our Radar family who have and continue to help other users out with kindness and patience - @MrMischief @JNASTY @Jonny B. Goode @Potatogun @Linkk @Fiscusand @Diego7000 (just to name a few).

So yes, you'll notice a lot has changed. We'll be missing some features but gaining new ones. The new software has more useful community-minded features baked into the core software which will mean we wont be reliant on a bunch of 3rd party plugins that would cripple our site if we ever updated (that's why things didn't change too often on the first site). So I'll be trying to keep the website as close to vanilla as I can to ensure the site stays up-to-date as often as possible.


A have a lot planned in the roadmap for NintendoRadar 2.0 and big ambitions! I'm talking merchandise, giveaways, developer AMA's, Youtube and Social Channels, paid freelance writers?, events and lots more! A big part of this will be tied to Patreon - which will allow users on the site to pledge money towards our patreon campaign which will grant them LOADS of exclusive perks around the site, increased odds in giveaways and in -turn fund the site, fund all the stuff I mentioned above and help us grow! More information on Patreon coming soon so stay tuned!

As for new features, there's quite a few! We're not enabling everything 'just yet' because I want to make sure everything rolls out smoothly! But here's just some  of what's working and some of what's in the pipleline!
 

  • *New* Dynamic Topics List Homepage - Our homepage now has an endless feed of all the recent topics from across all the different forums on the site (differentiated by their little colored tags) you can even filter out what forums you want to see topics from (or you can leave them all unchecked and see everything at once). You can also switch back to a more traditional 'forum-view' if that's what you prefer by clicking one of the little buttons at the top right :  Screen Shot 2018-02-19 at 04.15.08.png The idea here is that it'll be easier than ever to find new posts and threads!

     
  • Calendar - This will be a really fun new addition to the site and we plan on adding events, game release dates and more! Users will be able to signal their interest in new games, discuss and review games/events! There's a lot packed into the calendar (feature wise) just take a look at a game release date event I added! Just pasting a link to the event page in the post editor adds a widget like this:
    We've also got a sidebar widget showcasing upcoming game releases! There's so many neat tricks I can't possibly cover it all.
     
  • 'Our Picks' Page - This page will showcase staff curated content from across the site - from news, to videos, threads, images, .... and more! This will help us get your best content put up there in the spotlight and this will eventually become our homepage! Check out the 'Our Picks' page either by clicking the link on the menu or by clicking here: https://nintendoradar.com/ourpicks/

     
  • Activity - The activity dropdown in the main menu includes the 'All Activity' Discover page and more that allows you to see a complete feed of what's been going on in the forum! From profile ...., new members, likes, .... and more! 

     
  • A New Chatbox - Yup we've kept the chatbox, it's simple and clean! We'll also be adding really cool GIPHY support soon but we do also plan on embracing Discord at some point in the near future! Stay tuned!

     
  • Leaderboard - Can you top the leaderboards by being an active member of the community and posting content? A fun thing to check now and then: https://nintendoradar.com/leaderboard/

     
  • A flashy new profile page - You can really customise your profile and make it your own by adding a 'cover photo'!  Here's mine:

    Screen Shot 2018-02-19 at 04.46.18.png

     
  • Lot's more around the site, I'll let you fine people look around and see what you think! If you have any questions always feel free to hit me up!



Features Coming Soon:
 

  • Patreon Integration & VIP Usergroup - You'll be able to connect your Patreon account to your NintendoRadar account and when you pledge - you'll automatically be upgraded to a special premium user tier unlocking new features on the site (like signatures, create clubs, use the image gallery, photo gallery, advertisements, username decoration, create your own blog here on the site etc!) You'll also fund the site and pave the way towards more giveaways, features and expansion!
     
  • Clubs - Think of this as a bit like Facebook Groups/Reddit Subreddits. Patreon supporters, staff and some 'special' members will be able to create, manage, decorate and moderate their own 'Club Group' which will essentially be a little exclusive forum/news outlet/section of the site. People will be able to join your club, interact and post topics etc...  We foresee many game, hobby, sport and tv related clubs being made!
     
  • Blogs - Patreon supporters, staff and more will be able to create their own REAL blog within NintendoRadar! Whether it's to get stuff off your mind, to share news or get feedback - blogs will be a great addition to the site!
     
  • Gallery - Patreon supporters will be able to create their own image galleries to host images, load memes and anything you want!
     
  • Emoji Support - Yep, emojis will come to the site at some point. REAL EMOJIS!
     
  • More features will be announced over time, we're really excited about all the possibilities! 


    If you made it to the end, I take my hat off to you! Nintendo Radar will be changing and getting better! It wont happen overnight, but things and times are changing!

    Thank you for being a member and being part of the community. YOU make this place great! Stay tuned.

I'm liking the new site. I noticed you don't have any pinned messages or categories to filter posts so maybe include that. I always thought it would be really cool if forum sites like this one would promote interaction with a gimic like character profiles, building a character with items farmed by posting .... and new topics. Just an idea :). Also good luck to everyone on that eshop giveaway!

Hey RosPlays, thanks for the awesome post! That would be a really cool way to encourage users to post and come back to the site, I'll look into it!

As for the first part of your message - there is a way to filter posts from certain forums on the right. You leave them all unticked if you want to see all posts, or you can tick the boxes and Filter them:

You can also click those little icons next to the 'Start new topic' button to switch between this list style or a more traditional 'forums' area where everything is fully separated! :)

Thanks my friend! and good luck.

It's p cool but you really missed a trick in that email, you could have put "it's a site to behold" instead of "it's a sight to behold" and it would have been a top quality pun. Other than that disappointment, it's good.

Aww damnit, why didn't I think of that xD a potential pun well spotted! I should never write emails or long posts after staying up 26 hours and consuming a giant bottle of redbull O.o 

Thanks for the nice post though, and congrats on joining (again?). Good luck! :D

You're a very astute individual huh, the favicon of all things is the one thing I forgot to add when migrating the site over. *doh* Thanks for reminding me.

Cant say if the site is better or not already however from a glance it defiantly looks more polished and professional. The red vibe also suits for the Nintendo theme what with Mario and all ;P

Early days but looks good also reminded me to come back as I dropped off awhile back since the threads were getting quiet and at once point some spam was making it's way in.

Hopefully that will have been resolved by now.

I think the new look is slick and totally wicked, BUt Ive only been here for a short time, and time will tell, caelndar features with releases will be awesome even though its hard to miss if you subscribe to nintendo on youtube and other channels there and also check out the nintendo e-shop. But the more reminders the better to a certain extent because you dont want to miss those games you really want to grab the first day.

Fiscus!! I was about to add you to my list of mentions in the post with everyone else but got distracted - lemme do that now xD. You are one of my favorite peeps. Oh, premium is definitely on the horizon. I paid a pretty penny for a developer to create a patreon plugin that lets people connect their patreon to the site and syncs their pledge data so they'll be upgraded to premium automatically. Patreon is a great service for supporting communities and will make things much easier for me.

You'll warm up to it Diego, I am glad you made it to the end of the thread xD It took me a while to type it up. There's so much more to the site I couldn't cover it all. As for the reactions - yup I'll be adding more custom nintendo themed reactions also to spice things up a bit ;) Thanks for being a part of the community Diego!

Nice redesign, I also think it looks better on mobile now. 

Awesome, I haven't done much testing on mobile yet but I had assumed mobile would be much cleaner. Glad that you verified that it does look better :)

The layout has improved quite nicely. The new design is fresh and modern like many other forums. Also, the new features that have been integrated are great as well.
