As some of you may or may not know I’ve been spending a lot of time recently working away on an upcoming website which is focusing entirely on the UK NES. I thought I’d take some time to mention a few things I have in the pipe work and the important thing to beg for a little help! The site does have a name but I can’t share it until the domain registration is done but bare in mind it’s a good one.
Database – Complete list of all NES UK PAL A releases, none of these rubbish ones pieced together from various places but with full confirmed releases. I’m currently about 160 carts into a 280ish collection and I’ve already confirmed one or 2 titles that weren’t known to exist. Pictures of every cart, box, accessory, inserts, merchandise etc I have built up quite a large lot of images and information so far but there’s lots more to add.
Podcast – Lots of ideas for these including a complete history of Nintendo voiced by a madman (me).
Forum – Focused on collecting, reviews and article discussions etc Hoping to use it to build a good collecting community for people wanting to do trading especially for a lot of rarer NES carts.
Interviews – Got a few ideas and people to contact can’t reveal them at the moment because it would spoil the surprise! But the likes of editors, programmers, and developer interviews would be something I would be striving for.
Articles – Got lots in mind starting with a personal collecting history, Super Mario movie review, Nintendo tour bus from the 90’s, look at interesting accessories (ROB, Miracle Piano, UForce) etc
Magazine Scans – Full set (eventually, I’m missing about 4 issues all told) of Club Nintendo Magazine
Video’s – I’m coming from YouTube with the site idea and become a bit of a knack at recording mad ramblings over game play. I would like to have short clips of every released PAL game to go into the database and match with each review. At the moment I have done one for every game I’ve reviewed but the plan is to match every game in the database.
It’s taken me many, many hours to work through the database and I only just recently finished a complete catalogue of NES titles and information for a comprehensive database. Even if I have to post a picture of every cart from a full set I aim to have a decent encyclopedia type of site that’s dedicated to the UK NES scene.
Of course it wouldn’t be much of a site without content and I plan to launch when I have a good chunk of articles and reviews. I’m aiming for a starting point of around 50 and I’m managing to write about 2 a day. As you can probably imagine this is a huge undertaking and I could do with some help, people who have a love for the NES and want to help out with the site.
I’ve already had one donated review thanks to my YouTube channel but I’m on the look out for more. If I have to I will write a single review of every released game! If you want to help then please drop me a line
Below is a complete list of what I’ve written so far:
