The Borderlands 3 Controversy Rant

There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding the somewhat recently announced Borderlands 3. It started out with the announcement of B3 being released on PC not through Steam but the Epic Games Store. A lot of fans and gamers are so distraught over this matter that some say they will resort to pirating the game upon its release while others are currently review-bombing the previous games on Steam. It seems there’s a lot of drama coming from all sides because of this choice of marketing so decided to detail all these happenings in my video below.

This article and video are very different from what I usually write and make so apologies if I get some information wrong or my thoughts seem unclear. I hope you enjoy it anyways. Check it out down below.

Nintendo Now Experiments with VR With Labo!

Does anyone remember Nintendo Labo? The cardboard arts and crafts accessories that you could plug your switch into it and play little mini games? Well, Nintendo is bringing the cardboard back but this time for a more ambitious purpose, Virtual Reality. While back in the day Nintendo had stated they had no interest in developing a project for VR, they never discounted the idea of one day making VR games.

While the games for Labo VR may not be as in-depth as other VR games, like Skyrim VR or Resident Evil 7, the prospect of the Labo kit having VR elements to it I feel makes this kit more worth purchasing than the previous ones: it also helps that all kits together only cost about 80 dollars together. There are multiple kits available for purchase:

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit: Available at a suggested retail price of $79.99, the complete Nintendo Labo: VR Kit includes the Nintendo Switch software and materials to build all six Toy-Con projects – the Toy-Con VR Goggles, Toy-Con Blaster, Toy-Con Camera, Toy-Con Bird, Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Elephant – as well as a Screen Holder and Safety Cap. It’s a good option for kids and families who want to dive in to the full experience.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit – Starter Set + Blaster: Available at a suggested retail price of only $39.99, the Starter Set includes the Nintendo Switch software, plus all the components to build the Toy-Con VR Goggles and Toy-Con Blaster, as well as the Screen Holder and Safety Cap. The Starter Set is a great entry point into the world of Nintendo Labo VR.

  • VR Goggles – allows you to see imaginary fantastical worlds and real-world locations.
  • Wind Pedal
  • Camera – allows you to play a Pokémon Snap type game, (Please re-release the game for this peripheral, please!)
  • Elephant
  • Bird – allows you to see the world while flying!
  • Blaster – shoot down aliens with the blaster.

So yeah, if you’re expecting to play Breath of the Wild or Super Mario Odyssey with the Labo VR, you won’t be seeing any of that here, maybe in the future. I probably will buy this set just to see how well the VR works with this setup. Here’s to hoping that this experiment is worth the wait and that Nintendo expands on this concept in the future.

The VR sets are expected to release April 12th in North America and the UK.

 

Sonic’s Leaked Movie Design is Surprisingly Decent if you have low expectations.

Hey everyone. Most people know of Sonic’s strange and bizarre silhouette from the movie poster all those months back. Well, now we have seen through a leaked film style guide what exactly his design is. Some people are relieved with the final outcome of the mystery design while others are baffled and in fear. I personally didn’t mind the design at first BUT, watch my video down below until the end to see what Sonic’s in-movie design will be. (Hint: Deceivingly different from the illustration you see in this article’s featured image)

Thank you guys for watch and reading and I’ll see you guys next time, whenever I get around to writing another article! Have a good one! ~PND

New Pokémon Game: Sword and Shield

Greetings to all my readers, long time no see!

A couple of days ago we got a trailer for the latest generation of Pokémon games. A lovely duo of games exclusive for the Nintendo Switch: Sword and Shield. With each new Pokemon game comes a new trio of Staters, a new region, and a semi-new art style. Wanna see what the game has to offer? Check out the video down below to see what we know about Pokémon: Sword and Shield and get my opinions. Also, the pokemon you see me holding in the thumbnail is the new fire starter Scorbunny. I’m most likely gonna choose him HAH. Let me know down in the comments what you think of these new announcements.

On top of that, I roast the starter designs. Gotta love/hate them.

Metroid Prime 4’s History and Reboot

Hello to all who still follow this website! I have returned to make a new video and article. Sorry for taking so long but I felt this topic needed to be discussed. Today I’ll be writing about the latest news involving the next installment in the Metroid franchise: Metroid Prime 4. 

Metroid Prime 4 was announced at E3 2017 and was meant to be released either this year or in 2020. But recently it has been announced that the game had halted in production and would be restarted with the team that created the Prime series, Retro Studios. Why did this new development occur and what can we expect from the Metroid Series from here on out? Why was Retro Studios not considered to develop MP4, to begin with? Please watch the video below.

The Day 1 Rant and Review on the Nintendo Switch Online Service

This is a day that a lot of Switch owners have been dreading. Now we have to pay for something that was originally free and despite a good price, it still feels like a total rip off. It doesn’t help that Nintendo treated it’s viewers and customers like children giving definitions and explanations to simple concepts that we are already knowledgeable about. Don’t get what I’m talking about? Please check out the video below as I analyze Nintendo’s marketing strategies for the online service, where they went wrong and why A LOT of people are upset about this whole thing.

I first analyze the trailer for the Online Service that was shown during last week’s Nintendo Direct. After that I present some updated facts about the service such as the cloud saves and NES games and then give my own personal opinion on this service’s concept.

Mega Man 5 Marks the Restart of the Mega Man Marathon

For those who follow my Youtube channel, you may know that I am currently doing a marathon of classic Mega Man let’s plays. 4 was the most recent episode that I had uploaded over a month ago and finally, I’m getting back into it with my favorite Mega Man game, Mega Man 5.

Also to note, after Mega Man 6, I’m going to cut up the let’s plays into multiple parts. As you can see from Mega Man 1 up till now the parts last for as long as the game lasts which means each video is over an hour long. Starting with Mega Man 7 I’m going to shorten the parts to about half an hour or so, perhaps even less.

With all that said, please enjoy.
