    Nintendo Labo - What's in the box?

    Bought both initial sets for less than fifty quid total over the weekend, so looking forward to getting stuck in for mid-autumn festival. Also bought some of the third-party cardboard sets so that I can leave the official ones in the box for my daughter to make when she's older. Reviews online for them seem positive, so hopefully they'll be fine. Looking forward to the piano the most.

    Mine was terrible for registering the wrong directions, particular left/right when I actually wanted down. It was particularly awful in games like Puyo Puyo Tetris, which was basically unplayable with it. There's a video that shows how you can lay tape across the contacts on the PCB to eliminate the errors. Also laying a thicker bit of tape under the cradle to raise it up a little seemed to make it less wobbly. Input test in the Switch settings suggests it's done the trick, thankfully, as taking the pad apart was a bit of a faff. Bloody tiny ribbon cable was a right pain.

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    The first and second games are on the card. The third is a download via patch, so you should be able to re-sell it. It's not a single-use code or anything like that as far as I know.

    Just did the tape fix for the wonky d-pad on the pro controller and....it worked a treat! Can actually depend on it for a whole range of 2D games now, rather than having to play them with literally any other controller. It's a good thing I love this dumb machine, because this is the second fix I've had to do after the (also very successful) foam one for the left Joy-Con. Unacceptable, really, but I have no choice as I can't imagine I'd get very far trying to deal with Nintendo from China. That these fixes were so simple makes me assume they were really rushing to get the Switch out the door.
  5. Yeah, that's the Hori one.
  6. The drum in the bundle is the Hori one, isn't it? I thought it was.

    Going to need a photo of all the Switch boxes laid out, Strafe. Not bothered about the Amiibo.

    Telltale Games closing

    The arseholes in management must've known they were done for, but still had people moving across the country as recently as a week ago to take jobs there. Fucking shameful, but depressingly unsurprising.

    David Bowie

    I could watch that all day. I like how Frampton is content to just sort of exist in the orbit of Bowie's star, even though he sold about a trillion albums himself about a decade earlier.

    Xenoblade Chronicles 2

    A bunch of reviews said around ten hours, which seemed a bit low. I'll assume that's just reviewers rushing through it, though.

    Soccer is great, if only for the excited little dance your team do when they score.

    Nintendo Labo - What's in the box?

    First week sales of the Vehicle Kit were much, much lower than those of the Variety Kit in Japan. The robot one did worse than either of them, I think. Seems a shame, as it looks like they made more of a complete game experience this time around. Poor sales would explain why imported copies are being so heavily discounted here in China already. Just picked up the Robot Kit for around twenty quid, which seems cheap enough for me to get my money's worth out of it. Might just put it away until my daughter is a bit older and can enjoy it more, though.

    Mario Tennis Aces - Get Served

    Playing the adventure mode and find myself constantly anticipating the point at which it becomes annoying, as everyone else seemed to suggest it would, but it hasn't yet. Either the patches did enough to make it enjoyable or I have a higher tolerance for this stuff than most. Either seems likely, but I'm finding it really fun so far. Maybe it's because I attempted to play NES Tennis the other day, which is fucking impossible and the least enjoyable tennis game I've ever played.
