Infendo: What does it all mean?

Have you ever wondered what the heck Infendo stands for? If so, gather round for a little self indulgence and useless information on this fine Monday.

As a youngling, Game Informer was one of my favorite video game magazines. This was before “cyberspace” was around so good magazines were the only source for news, reviews, cheats, and screenshots for us kiddies. I always liked the idea of informing someone, so I knew that’s what I wanted to do with the site. And that’s basically what a good web log should do, inform. Sure, we occasionally report on stuff, but generally it’s just organizing and consolidating information in a form that’s useful.

So I played around with some ideas. Nintendo Informant. Nintendo Informing. Informing Nintendo. Infendo! The name stuck. Hopefully it can become synonymous with good online Nintendo news for many years to come.
