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.

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 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.

Sony’s “NO Crossplatform Policy” and Nintendo’s Counter-Marketing

A lot of news came out over the past couple of weeks involving Sony not allowing Fortnite players to transfer their data over to the Switch. This bled into the issue of Sony not allowing crossplatform play with their competition. In response Nintendo and Microsoft made a video on their channel to counter this drama. Watch as I go over the facts and react to Nintendo’s video.
