    Didn't realise there was a thread for this. I think I'm sold. I used to craft cardboard consoles as a kid with fully working cartridge slots and a screen with interchangeable images (was always a portable console). Seeing the advert for this game pretty much transported me back to those moments. This would have been amazing back then. Its pretty amazing now!

    Pre-ordered both sets on Amazon just now. May not keep the orders but I'm well impressed and so were the wife and kids when they watched the trailer.

    The fact that there are adult men hating on this because they don't see how it appeals to them, is absolutely hilarious. Nintendo is still releasing Metroid, Bayonetta & Shin Megami Tensei. You're not being excluded you fucking babies.

    I'm definitely interested but I don't see any reason for pre ordering. Looking forward to hearing more

    It's a Nintendo product, so the scalpers will have bought most of the stock already.

    God, they did it. They created an environment where people pre-order everything they release for fear of missing out.

    Is there any more sense yet on the games themselves? My impression from the trailer is that there likely to be 1-2 Switch like experiences

    Iím missing the point here. Why would anyone pay £70 for a cardboard box that goes on your back. If the Labo stuff was mentioned on April 1st, I would get it. Donít want to cause any arguments about this, but do share why some are so excited about it. Maybe Iím just old.

    That is actually true. If they had released that trailer on April 1st everyone would have laughed it all off.

    That's what it looks like to me. And why I don't want to spend the cash on it... Price point of £30 and I might be interested but not double that.

    60 quid does seem a lot, but then I look at the X Wing that I spent 80 quid on and got an hourís worth of fun with
  • Deleted user 19 January 2018 08:35:32
    I think some are forgetting it's more for actual kids. £60 for this doesn't bother me. I've spent more on toys & games for them that they haven't really touched. I know they will get some fun out of this.
  • Deleted user 19 January 2018 08:47:34
    It's not the cost, I want to see what the game consists of rather than a tech demo

    I'm not shitting on it or forgetting it's more for kids, I just think it's a shit load of money for a load of old tat that will be forgotten in minutes.

    I'm assuming (probably wrongly) that, judging by the trailer, this will be linked in with some kind of scratch programming initiative.

    The giant hexbugs seem made for

    I can appreciate that some think it's too costly, doesn't mean it isn't cool as fuck though.

    But anybody saying it's "just" a cardboard box can fuck off, as that's absolutely inaccurate.

    It will break, kids will cry, youíll try and fix it with tape and glue, it will break again, and then youíll just click on the £30 cardboard refill button on amazon.

    Repeat the cycle a month later, and after that one breaks too youíre not going to bother because the novelty has worn off and the kids donít care anymore.

    Now youíve spend £130 and youíre stuck with a game you canít play anymore and canít sell because who is going to buy the game without the cardboard.

    Itís genious is what it is.

    @Fake_Blood

    Kind of like every other kids toy that gets bought played with a couple of times and then never touched again.

    Or video game for that matter judging by people's backlogs on here :-)

    Yes mrpon itís geniUs, english is not my first language.

    Anyway yes kids lose interest quickly, but thereís a reason most toys are made out of quasi indestructible plastics.

    It's clearly an attempt to get kids into engineering.
    Criticising it as a game shows you're a Trump.
