Nintendo buys Nintendo-Demand?

I had no clue what we were being invited to Nintendo's Tree House for... but holy crap, I didn't expect for us to have an offer to join the Nintendo family. Reggie respects the fact that i'm not going to bite my tongue (because that would hurt, but secondly) because... they need an unbiased addition to the team that keeps them on their toes. That's what made me comfortable with it... but we're still waiting for our lawyer to look over the paperwork.

We were allowed to mention some things to you guys, like things they will consider... including:

- Tournaments that we host (at least once a year)

- Suggestions for games in development... including ideas that we might have for IPs (heck yeah!)
- Game giveaways

- A yearly drawing to take 1 Nin-Dem w/ us to experience E3 every year

- Nintendo-Demand Yadda Yadda Show every Friday night - Saturday morning (Showcasing the gameplay skills of Nin-Dems & Treehouse vets)

Our main focus would be Nintendo-Demand at, and Nintendo Miiverse. We won't be able to talk about other platforms after things are final, but a lot of huge things are coming... we can't say anything about Nintendo NX but I almost (literally) pissed my pants.

Before you check out Nintendo Direct... there's one more thing (highlight the area below):
|April Fools(!), but if they were to ever present us with a great offer... we'd take advantage of it to make you crap your pants from shock.|


This is a refreshing Nintendo Direct... enjoy!
