Hello folks, hope everyone has had a fantastic start to 2018 as well as a great holiday period. I thought I would quickly touch base on some the backstage going-ons of NintyBuzz.

Before I start, I just want to say that I will outright refuse to let NintyBuzz die, no matter how inactive I get, or what sticky situations I end up in, I will alway try my best to keep NintyBuzz going.

This brings me to my disappearance towards the end of 2017 up until a week ago. I’m always open with you wonderful lot, so I am going to say, simply put, my mental health had a significant dive. Anyone who suffers from depression and anxiety will understand how this can affect your motivation to do pretty much anything. This has also been coupled with the fact that university work has become quite intense as of late. Good news though, I am now taking steps to improve my wellbeing to try and become more stable.

This also means that there will be a bunch of reviews that will be going live for games which I have outstanding. Even though the reviews are late, who knows, maybe it will remind you of some hidden gems. When everything settles down a bit more, I also plan to start some good ol’ streaming to do as a bit of fun, so be sure to look out for that.

Additionally, I have recently created a Nintendo community situated in Bournemouth, where I will be hosting monthly gatherings for all the local Nintendo fans. We’re even hosting a Mario Kart tournament at Flirt Café next week, so if you’re down in Bournemouth then, then be sure to check out BourneNintendo.

Finally, I would just like to take a moment to say a massive thank you to everyone who still has a little check of NintyBuzz, everyone who has supported me in my down times, as well as a special thank you to the folks from Nintendo and Pretty Green who I have felt have been really understanding of my current situation.

Before I finish however, if anyone would like to help me out a bit, I am more than happy for anyone to do so, whether it’s writing a few articles here and there or just posting on the forums.

Until next time,
Keep on buzzin’!
Leon Fletcher

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
