I'd be lying if I said I wasn't worried about breakage, but this is going to prove really fun for me and my daughter. I just need to get her a pair of Joycons of her own.

Go back and read my #1 point, then read your post again "( I just need to get her a pair of Joycons of her own)". This is exactly what Nintendo wants. Cha-ching, (Another Joy Con sale)… Lol.

Labo has zero standing in my decision to get my daughter Pink Joycons. That was going to happen anyway.

Umm im pretty sure Sony/Microsoft want people buying extra controllers as well.

The lengths people will go to make Nintendo seem evil is baffling.

Of course the goal is to make as much money as possible, but you have to think that some creators also sit around an chum ways to make consumers purchase additional units. Ala Microsoft Red ring Of Death. Ala cell phone companies that still use glass screens when here in 2018 you would think that they could come up with a better more durable cell phone/ Tablet screen alternative. 

Even though you may not believe this, cell phones are made to be fragile for a reason.

So in other words everybody does it yet you decided to make a thread singling out a single company?



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

This whole Labo thing is hilarious, some people are so triggered by something they have absoloutely no requirement to purchase, and complain about a childish gimmik.. aimed at children..

Personally think something that marries arts and crafts with computer games and imagination is a real sweet spot for the modern child, moving them away from just wanting to play the computer all the time, to building and decorating these creations, possibly in a structured quality time way with parents.

If you dont like it, dont get it, it for you dont understand it, its probably not aimed at you.

it is however aimed at families with young kids, like both of my sisters. Both of whom intend to get a switch kit so the kids can play with these sets, its a creative, fun, innovative idea for kids that absolutely hits the mark.

How that can be turned in to some kind of mockery/criticism of nintendo is beyond me.

[slow clap] well played, talk about click bait. I saw the video title and thought GTFO if Pachter actually predicted Labo i'm going to have to reevaluate my low opinion of the guy.

Yeah, title is bit clickbaity, but I was too lazy to search for original Bonus Round.

And Pachter, as much of a troll that he can sometimes be (though he's right way more than people think), is well spoken guy who actually knows a shit-ton about industry - back in days on GT, I always enjoyed watching him in Pach-Attack and Bonus Round.

Michael Pachter probably knew cardboard would eventually be a thing.. but Labo isn't a box of cardboard... it's way more complex than that. But keep being narrowminded, humanity has been that way for the longest time, so I really don't care..

I guess this Pachter stuff flew way above your head.

People give him shit for lot of things, especially for wild mispredictions and alegged Nintendo hate (though in reality he loves Nintendo games), so it was hilarious when someone dug up his statement (I saw it first on EG) about cardboard box with Nintendo logo on it as his "good" prediction.

It actually has nothing to do with quality of Labo as a product.



I think that Nintendo, if they can get away with such a thing, is a force of nature, it can not be stopped.
If your consumers buy literally garbage of you, what can they complain about? you are flawless in their eyes if you can sell them literally pieces of cardboard that will not last more than a month.]
To me, it only proves me how out of touch with gaming culture I really am, because to myself this nothing short of stupid. But it seems to be awesome to everyone else.
It is something to behold, it is breath taking... Talk about blue ocean strategy...



My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

To me Labo represents the 'novelty' horrors that Nintendo have done forever: they all last five minutes (even 3d). Meanwhile I wait for the next 'substance' to arrive in the form of a quality first party, traditional videogame. I think the horror and fear for me is that if Nintendo sees success again with the novelty and then forgets (forever!) how to make the next classic video game. Labo reminds me of plastic mcdonalds toys you get at the drive in, but costing over $100. Why are they wasting braincells on this stuff... sigh.

As others have said though, we don't yet know what the software side will be like... it might be more mario maker than wii music ? So I'll keep a slightly open mind and look forward to the tennis game and fire emblem in the mean time.

mmm... i'm not so sure...

i can already feel the astroturf writting the names they're gonna call this..

you think "waggle" originated from gamers, and that it was grassroots? ..think again... Labo is gonna be called something, and if it were legitimately from the audience, it would have happened already. there's gonna be a really detracting name for this, and it's gonna come from viral marketing dollars...

fortunately or not, people are gonna eat it up..this is the kind of thing people will love to hate.. but the public is actually too stupid to come up with a campaign themselves..

just wait a little bit more, you'll see..
