Who Needs A Gaming Steering Wheel When You Can 3D Printed A Mini One?

Are you still playing racing video games with a thumb stick game controller? Well, if so, you must have super dexterity with your thumb or you are just OK with less-than-ideal turns (read: you suck at the game). Me? I am the latter. That’s why I have the official Playstation Logitech steering wheel hooked up to my ancient PS3. But if I had a Xbox, I would probably not spend that kind of money. Instead, I would have 3D printed this Xbox Game Controller Mini Steering Wheel. Continue reading Who Needs A Gaming Steering Wheel When You Can 3D Printed A Mini One?

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

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.

Oh Look, Playstation Now Has A Tiny PS4 Gamepad For Tiny Hands

Look at the Playstation DualShock4 controller. Are there anything wrong with it? With an ergonomic design, there are hardly anything wrong with it, but if you think the wireless freedom it offers and the size is a tad too big for your tiny hands, well then, Sony Playstation’s newly announced Sony Playstation Mini Wired Gamepad for PS4 will have you covered. Yes. It is supposed to be small, but to be honest, not by a lot (Sony said it is 40% smaller, btw). It looks kind of neat, I am not going to lie, but that’s if you can ignore the irritable cable sticking out of it. Continue reading Oh Look, Playstation Now Has A Tiny PS4 Gamepad For Tiny Hands

Folks, This Is The World’s First Gaming Pad That Works On Any Platform

If you are like me who is not quite a loyal fan to any gaming platform, then I am sure you will be delighted with the ALL Controller. ALL Controller is a gaming controller, AKA gaming pad, that promised to work across virtually any platforms, be it Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, Mac, Nintendo Wii, PC, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Wii U, Xbox One, or Xbox 360, with future support for Nintendo latest console, Switch. It even touts support for Android smartphone, tablet, and of course, Android TV too.
