Nintendo Labo Adds Vehicle Kit, Lets You Drive, Fly And Command A Sub

I am sure you remember Nintendo’s cardboard-based gaming peripherals under its Labo series. The new Toy Cons is a Vehicle Kit that will let you drive, fly and even command a submarine like how they should be controlled. The Nintendo Switch Labo Vehicle Kit includes Car, Pedal, Plane, Key, and Submarine. The Car is presented as a steering wheel with various controls. The Pedal is what it says it is. The Plane is an aircraft control stick and the Submarine is a contraption that I don’t really understand. It is a box with dual steering wheel of sort, one on each side of the box. And then there is the key, which is a ‘magical’ accessory enabled by a Joy-Con controller. Continue reading Nintendo Labo Adds Vehicle Kit, Lets You Drive, Fly And Command A Sub

If Darth Vader Played Video Games, This Would Be The Chair He’d Use

Whether you are slugging out on the virtual battlefield in Star Wars Battlefront, or reliving the good’ol Star Wars Trilogy at home, you will want to do it in Imperial style with the Star Wars Darth Vader and Stormtrooper Gaming Chairs. Why? Because, Darth Vader and Stormtrooper. Duh. The two chairs shared the same features, differing only aesthetically.

ROG Phone Is ASUS’ Vision Of A True Mobile Gaming-Focus Smartphone

Is mobile gaming such a big deal that warrants a gaming-focus smartphone? Apparently, other than Razer, ASUS seems to think so. At Computex in Taipei, Taiwan, last month, the computer and smartphone maker previewed an interesting phone under its ROG namesake. Called ASUS ROG Phone, it is a 6-inch device designed with mobile gaming in mind. Continue reading ROG Phone Is ASUS’ Vision Of A True Mobile Gaming-Focus Smartphone

Pre-order Opens For Atari Modern Day Connected Game Console, Atari VCS

Lo and behold. Atari is finally getting back into the game that it had once rein supreme. Now, please don’t ask why we have missed the announcement last year, but anyways, what matters here is, it is now a reality called Atari VCS. VCS here is, of course, the moniker once associated with the classic Atari 2600, which is also the design this modern day Atari console drew its inspiration from and hence, the delightful, retro-licious look.

Nintendo Poké Ball Plus Lets You Catch Pokémon Like It Was Meant To Be

Nintendo has announced a new Nintendo Switch accessory that will boost the realism of Pokémon experience. Meet the Poké Ball Plus, an actual Poké Ball that lets you catch Pokémon like it was meant to be, i.e. throwing it at the Pokémon and not swiping your finger on a touch display. But that is as far as realism goes. The truth is, you are not going to hurl this precious little ball and expecting it not to break. It will. That’s why, like any motion controller, it comes with a hand strap, so won’t actually crack your very expensive flat TV when you use it on the new Nintendo Switch Pokémon games (such as Let’s Go Pikachu! and Let’s Go Eevee!) which it also works with. Continue reading Nintendo Poké Ball Plus Lets You Catch Pokémon Like It Was Meant To Be

ColorWare Adds A Nostalgic Feel To Joy-Cons And Pro Controller

Last August, we were enamored by ColorWare’s Joy-Cons Classic, the Joy-Con controllers for Nintendo Switch that has been customized with to look like the classic NES console. All 25 sets were swiftly snapped up and if you missed it, fret not, cos’ ColorWare has brought it back. Well, kind of… The Joy-Cons 8-bit, as it is called, is not quite the Joy-Cons Classic. It is close enough though, sporting a Nintendo gray and black design with hints of red on the ABXY buttons. Continue reading ColorWare Adds A Nostalgic Feel To Joy-Cons And Pro Controller

Jigglypuff Game Controller Looks Like The Result Of A Botched Teleportation

If you have some idea how teleportation works in theory, you will know the devastating consequences if the object in transit does not form as it should on the receiving end. Well, the custom Jigglypuff GameCube Game Controller you see here looks like the Pokemon monster had a botched teleportation. All hideous and grotesque as a result. I don’t know what went through the mind of the person who conceived this monstrosity. I mean, seriously, just look at the side-by-side comparison of the original adorable Jigglypuff (before she gets really pissed, obviously) and the product that arrived at the other end of the teleportation device. Continue reading Jigglypuff Game Controller Looks Like The Result Of A Botched Teleportation

Someone Turned A GameCube Into A Dock For Nintendo Switch

Oh, look, someone had made two much loved Nintendo come together as one. Meet the GameCube Dock for Nintendo Switch, a lovely hack/mod executed beautifully by YouTuber Rated-e Mods, AKA Dorison Hugo. In a video posted four days ago, Rated-e Mods, with the help of a smooth voice over that sounds those you will heard in an infomercial program, show you how it is done. The video is fairly long running over 18 minutes and so, you can expect a lot of details which I will not be regurgitating here. It just makes no sense. I am no pro. Rated-e Mod is.

Here’s An iPhone Case That Is Also A Functional Game Boy Gaming Device

Remember the Smartboy? The April’s Fool joke gadget accessory from Hyperkin that turned into a real product, allowing you to relive your Game Boy days right on your smartphone? Well, here’s another. Officially known as Wanle Gamers Console for iPhone (though we’d call it Wanle Functional Game Boy Case for iPhone), it is a tad different from Hyperkin’s dock-style accessory. Wanle’s iteration is literally a case that protects your iPhone, while offering access to all ports and buttons, and it does not rely on your smartphone to let you play the included Game Boy titles.
