Brikk Wants To Bedazzle Gamers With This Luxe DualShock 4 Controller

Well, this is one DualShock 4 controller I imagine Admiral General Aladeen would love to have if he had a Playstation 4 instead of Wii. Anyways, before you here is a super luxe DualShock 4 Controller from the gadget customizer with the Midas touch, Brikk. Aptly called Lux DualShock 4 Controller, this ultimate in gaming luxury is coated in 24K yellow gold, topped with three layers of protective clear veneer so it’d be able to stand up to rigor of actually being used.

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

Anker Has The First Nintendo Switch-certified Portable Charger

We don’t need to tell you obvious caveat of portable gadgets. If you need a gentle reminder, then the caveat would be those gadgets will run out of juice. The groundbreaking console/handheld gaming device hybrid, Nintendo Switch, is no exception. Thankfully, solution exists to keep it juice on the go, but there aren’t one that’s “officially” recognized by the console maker – that’s until now. Meet the Anker PowerCore Nintendo Switch Portable Charger (basically, power bank, or portable battery) – the first Nintendo-certified portable Switch charger.

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

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

Nintendo Labo Is A Series Of Switch Peripherals Made Of Cardboard

Nintendo has announced an interesting product that will make the Nintendo Switch console more interesting. Well, not that it needed any, judging from the sales it has been getting thus far. Anywho, with the Nintendo Labo, it may pique non-adopters to pick a set. I know, I am suitably intrigued. So, why the heck is Nintendo Labo? Official words are, Nintendo Labo “combines the magic of Nintendo Switch with the fun of DIY creations.” What that means is, Nintendo wants you to use cardboard to put together gaming peripherals to expand your further the fun of the switch. Continue reading Nintendo Labo Is A Series Of Switch Peripherals Made Of Cardboard

ASUS Bezel-free Kit Will Get Rid Of Vertical Bezels In A Multi-Display Setup

If you want an expansive view when gaming, you can either go for a huge wide screen display, or hook up multiple displays. The former has its limitation in terms of how wide it can go, while the latter is obviously wider, you will have to put up with interrupting vertical bezels that exist between monitors. It is a tough choice to make, but with the ASUS Bezel-free Kit, we’d say go for the multi-display setup because, this nifty accessory showcased at the just concluded CES will make the annoying bezels magically disappear. OK. It will not ‘delete’ the bezel per se. In fact, the right words to use here would be “creating an illusion of disappearing bezels,” or “optical obfuscation.” Continue reading ASUS Bezel-free Kit Will Get Rid Of Vertical Bezels In A Multi-Display Setup

ICAROS Is A Simulator That Combines Fitness With Gaming Via Virtual Reality

Until Wii came along, the idea of video gaming is akin to gluttony. Except in gaming, you don’t devour food, well, maybe not as much. Certainly, you won’t be jamming your guts with food beyond its capacity. In other words, you get no exercise, except for your fingers and that obviously, is very unhealthy and not desirable. But with the ICAROS, gaming becomes so much more. ICAROS is like a gaming simulator of sort, with virtual reality in the mix. Instead of letting your fingers do all the legwork, so to speak, ICAROS requires your entire body to work to play the game.
