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.

First Hour and Review of PS4 Spider-Man

Hello my normies, Paul Neon Davidson here. This will be the first time I do a full-on written review. It’s about the recently released PS4 Spider-Man game. I also have a video of me playing the first hour in the end so check it out if you can. Please :3.

Spider-Man has been released for PS4 and it has got be one of the most glorious PS4 exclusives I have ever played. It’s possibly the best Spider-Man game released to date.

A lot of people would compare this game to the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham games and while they both feature similar combat systems Spider-Man manages to still make the game feel unique with Spidey’s web-slinging abilities. Tie up enemies, sling yourself toward them for greater impact, throw projectiles at your foes, and with extra upgrades that can be unlocked through XP combat in this game never ceases to please.

Your webs also allow for fast and acrobatic travel across New York City, which includes nods to Dr. Strange’s Sanctum and even Ghostbusters surprisingly (see below). You can sling across New York or just walk about and talk to civilians, some of which you can even give a high-five to adding to your XP. Graphically speaking I feel Spider-Man gives GTA 5 a run for its money and the open world allows for some amazing exploration that the previously addressed web-slinging emphasizes.

Along with the story focused missions are some side missions which add to the play time and replayability of the game guaranteeing a 30+ hour long game that could take even longer to 100%. The story and the game are set in their own universe not based on any movie like previous game and the story is enjoyable with a lot of Spidey’s iconic rogue gallery coming out to play and each with a unique boss battle. The cutscenes feel like a movie and have great characterizations for Peter and his usual gang including Aunt May, MJ, and Harry Osborne. It’s a good balance of originality, nods to the movies, and comic book campiness.

I can’t say it enough and a lot of other reviewers agree, Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4 is AMAZING, SPECTACULAR, SUPERIOR, and is friendly to all in the gaming neighborhood.

Mega Man 11 Demo Out Now! Two New Robot Masters

Hello my normies! I played the newly released Mega Man 11 demo on Nintendo switch! It’s of course free and a lot of fun! Check out the video below to get more details!

Also unlike my other posts I’m gonna try to do some actual journalism here. Along side this demo we got the reveal of two new robot masters: Impact Man and Bounce Man. In fact in the demo you can use Impact Man’s weapon: the Pile Driver. It’s Block Man’s weakness.

Bounce Man is the large round childish guy that of course bounces around and tries to punch you. Impact Man is a construction type robot that is literally trying to nail you! Check them out in the PS4 trailer down below.

Information Roundup on the 2019 Sonic Movie

The first video I’ve made in a WHILE! In August we got a bunch of information about the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie. I collected all the information that was announced at the time and compiled them together in this video. I also give my opinions on the production and the concepts introduced so far.

I apologize for not updating my website and not being active in the slightest. I was supposed to have dome this video like a week ago but due to a trip I took with my family and getting sick right afterward I was in place to do any editing or recording. I promise
