No, but basically because...
(a) I'm not a kid.
(b) I have no kids.
I suck at crafting.

I see it is a very well targeted product. It will not sell like Wii Sports or Minecraft, but a few millions will it get out of the target group. I can see kids going bananas over it. And I can see crafters creating cool stuff with it. Can't wait for April to see popup interesting viseos on Youtube about stuff made with Labo. That's the point where my sister - who is good at crafting - probably will notice. To check that theory I won't tell her about it.

I've preordered everything, including the dumb customisation kit. People who complain that it's a bunch of shallow mini-games at an inflated price are likely to be proved right - I don't have illusions about it - but I'm not bothered about it being made out of cardboard at all.

I had to throw out my old Rock Band instruments the other day: well-built plastic that's been gathering dust and taking up space for years. I've already got a keyboard: I don't need another one that runs (badly) off a Nintendo Switch, so I'll get this, have the fun of building it and fooling around with it, then when I come to throw it away it will not have cost me much and it will be recyclable. You'd have to pay me to give houseroom to a dodgy RC car that barely moves: this one I'll play with for half an hour, think 'huh, that works' and it can be out of my house next rubbish collection. What you're buying with these things is not the 'peripheral' but the experience of seeing the thing spring to life.

Depending on how much replacement cardboard kits cost, I could see the actual cartridge having decent resale value. I'll probably pass mine along to my nephew with a new set of cardboard because he's of an age to get more fun out of it.



If I had kids I most likely would have gotten it. It is a cool concept, just not for me personally.



Depends... are you including the waifu edition, or not?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Maybe. If it turns out to be good and if it gets a price drop to €50-60.

No but I hope they take the robot one and turn into a fully realized game for Switch. Custom Robo anyone?



Likely not, obviously it's not aimed at me and that's fine. I think it's a good idea. It would be a good collectable though, and you can be sure it's going to be worth something in the future, when kept in mint condition. That would be a reason for me to get at least the Robot set.

EDIT: Anyone else has the thing where when you see "something-OTW" you immediately think "Of The Wild"? I'm sick I know.

They're all the Waifu edition.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I think I'm now in the undecided option, just because I'm curious on how those cardboard things work XD.

I thought that too!

Maybe in Poll of the Wild, Link is a census-taker
