Another new feature we are bringing to Miketendo64 is the Community Spotlight. This feature is a series of articles that shines a light on some of the many incredible gaming communities out there in the big wide world. To help kickstart this feature, we reached out to who we think are one of the most open and genuine gaming communities out there. Fortunately, for us, some of our good friends are members and founders of the community. We are of course talking about the NM5 & Friends Gaming Community.
Jess: I’m Jess, a co-host of NM5 and friends which is a Discord Community of gamers and geeky folk and Twitter page set up specifically for gamers and anyone looking to play together, meet and make friends.
Ash: I am Ash and we are NM5 and Friends. We’re all about gaming for all individuals regardless of who they are.
Will: I’m Will and I’ve been a member of the NM5 community for about 18 months and an admin for six months. We’re primarily a Splatoon 2 community, but we welcome people interested in all games and have a lot of people using the community to chat about other games and meet new people to play with.
I might add that Capcom had an event at the same venue at the same time for the release of DMC5 and ours was more successful! The other was Richard’s surprise 30th birthday where we had dozens of people come from all over the country to be a part of tournaments, games, drinks, quizzes and general shenanigans!
Ash: I run the Racing Mondays in the group. Recently it has been popular with the members and its pure carnage when it comes to Mario Kart! Splatoon 2 rooms are run weekly and other games can be played during the week if anyone is up for a match on those two or even Smash Bros.
Plus meetups are held as and when. The next one is Thorpe Park on 16th September which is my first one and I cannot wait to meet everyone!
Will: We do, pretty much every session that we organize. A lot of our regular players had got pretty bored of Turf War as a Mode. Having a whole load of new and varied stages to play has given it back a sense of excitement that it felt like we’d lost.
Miketendo64: For anyone who may be interested in joining your community, how can they get in touch with you?
We at Miketendo64 would like to thank Richard, Jess, Dottie, Ash, and Will for taking the time to talk about their incredible gaming community. We truly admire and respect what you all have achieved and that hope that you continue to shine brightly so that other lost or lonely gamers can find their way and join your awesome community. We hope you continue to Stay Fresh and most importantly “Don’t Get Cooked, Stay Off The Hook!”
