    Nintendo Labo - What's in the box?

    Absolutely love this. Bought a 2nd set of joycon as well so me and my 5 year old daughter had a right laugh racing & fighting with 2 RC cars Have now just finished the motorbike, the game itself is actually really good and controls perfectly with the bike handles The whole making part is just so satisfying, everything perfectly clicks into place, the software guide is brilliant, and the finished Toy-Con feel so solid and work perfectly, you really feel quite chuffed when it’s finished and you get to try out the game for it Just a great package, seems like great value to me Cant decide between house or piano next

    Retro gaming magazine scan archives

    Yeah been using this a lot recently - my little brothers drawing won a copy of Banjo Kazooie in a mag and I’ve been trying to find it, I was convinced it was CVG with the Drawinz wot u dun bit in the old yellow freeplay section, but using this site I’ve downloaded about 20 mags from this time 98/99 and no joy, and it doesn’t look like they gave prizes so I must have been wrong No idea what other mag it could have been Fascinating reading through them though, amazing how much of it you remember given its 20 years ago

    Shiftlings is a pretty good co-op puzzle platformer- basically a big and a small character tethered together that you and your co-op player switch between to make it through the levels https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=z-fC2c2vYS0 not sure how to embed video on phone

    Gaming Magazines

    Yeah I loved that whole period of gaming in the mid 90s and the story of all these new machines, that’s why I love and still read those File magazines that Edge did, 3 big compilations of their content over this time Loved this too with its 20+ page reviews, think it’s the first time I’ve seen it mentioned in these sort of threads and it’s made me remember how amazing it made Tekken 2 look with its screenshot overload

    Nintendo Switch

    I think Nintendo are missing a trick by not releasing little slide on ends for the Switch to make it more comfortable to hold in handheld without the joycons attached - especially with Labo coming. I remember early in it’s life people saying they couldn’t do touch screen only games because they have to allow an on tv option but Nintendo are clearly also doing off tv only stuff, and with kids walking around carrying the Switch unprotected with Labo it makes sense to release soft slide on bumpers slightly wider than the Switch which have no functionality other than making it comfier to hold and protected from drops. Would be cheap to make and loads of different designs and just make it far more usable for handheld use and allow them to steal some tablet market share with quality Nintendo touch screen games and mobile ports and video apps etc. Guess from the Labo dimensions for the bits the Switch slot into they aren’t planning anything like this but seems a waste of the touch screen and tablet form, I know it’s no ipad but stealing user time from tablets can only be good for them along with profits from the accessories themselves

    Golf Story

    Yeah I’ve hit this, was loving it up until then as well Apparently they’ve submitted a patch for it a couple of weeks back which sorts out existing saves so looking forward to getting back to it, how long does it generally take for patches to go live after submission?

    Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

    Really loving this so far and only at the end of world 1 One thing that's bugging me but not sure if it's just me, is the camera control in battles. Not sure why in the over world have much more control over the camera as in battles can only move it to 4 positions, it's often difficult to see anything especially in enclosed levels with high walls. Is there something I'm missing?

    Rayman Legends demo on the shop now. Me and Mrs 100%'d this back on 360, really tempted to go again, my proudest gaming moment, game was solid. Hopefully we can finish Overcooked by then but that's getting really tricky too

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    If this is the one I'm thinking of then I too spent ages trying to find it after the mask was insisting there was one about somewhere, but gave up in the end. Will try again later, determined not to use a guide

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Yeah, it's really drawn me back in. Finished the game a while back on 110 hours and kept trying to dip back in but with no real direction, thinking I'd seen everything and struggling to find more shrines, yet now I see huge areas untouched so now going round them all finding loads of Koroks and new stuff. Havent touched the new quests or trial or anything yet so feel like I've got loads more to do again. Great idea holding this feature back. And as @Fletch said it's weird remembering exactly what happened 100 hours ago just from seeing the path fill in
  15. You can accelerate with Y as well which makes it much easier to just dip onto B to brake. Much less painful as well in hand held mode using Y Not sure if everyone else uses Y instead of A - was really uncomfortable with A so tried Y on the off chance and was pleasantly surprised it works.
