Nintendo Labo....... da fuq???

4 posts in this topic

So..... basically this is the next Wario Ware game, only instead of the minigames being played by the Wii U/ Wii controller, the games are instead played by building cardboard stuff that represents the minigames, eg: Piano, fishing rod, robotic stuff, driving game + so many others, and then putting the switch to that cardboard miniature? My brother in law will most likely buy this stuff for my nephew! Goddamn, that's really creative!

 

This puts Xbox's Kinect & VR to absolute shame. lol

There will be most likely a market for this but I'm not sure in what situations I would find this useful and fun myself. As long as these requires that I'm at present while my children are playing with these I rather would do something much more developing and fun with them. From six year old forward we are able to build our own toys with various of materials and do software for them ourselves. I can imagine they would find Labo very simple and boring quite fast.

I agree, I think kids would have more fun and creative stimulation going crazy with Lego, Crayons, paint or pretty much anything.  Not to mention the price tag is absolutely ridiculous!

Well, now that I see how the games are played, it's exactly what I thought. It's pretty creative! The price tag is also not as horrible as I thought ($99 for the variety kit, which is basically the same price as new games in Australia, or $119 if it's that robot kit). 

 

But now that I have the time to think about this thing once it's released, it's going to be risky. There's a high chance that parents are going to buy this for their kids, only to find out that making these things will take hours and most of them are going to give up, or after spending hours to build the thing, someone's 1 - 5 year old kids will throw the thing to the ground and broke the Switch. Gulp, that's gonna be a nightmare to deal with. Plus down the line, this thing will be displayed in Pawn Shops + Cash Converter stores already fully built without needing to assemble the cardboard, so for those that are interested, better wait for that. Or maybe go to a nearby game store that has Nintendo play area which I'm sure will have these things playable.

 

Still, it's better than Kinect, which doesn't work unless it's a dance game. :D
