Nintendo is a toymaker. Always has been, always will be.

And there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Their recent consoles have all been baby toys.

Call it what you want, all I know is I played through all of Nintendo's big 2017 titles without encountering a single lootbox.

dairyqueenlatifah - 2018-01-20
I've played the big titles of 2017 besides EA's drivel, and Shadow of War is the only one that had lootboxes.

But... children come from WOMEN.

WOMEN ARE RUINING GAMING.
dairyqueenlatifah - 2018-01-20
Both of those statements are true. They just aren't true as a combined singular statement.

poorwill - 2018-01-20
How are women ruining gaming, fatty?

DQL walking on that 3DGE again.

Oh maaaaaaan you guys KNOW ME. Just assume I’m always being sarcastic.

Xenocide - 2018-01-20
Because of WOMEN GAMERS, God of War 12 no longer includes that minigame where you rape and disembowel your own daughter. Even though the story makes it clear that she deserved it for how she was dressed. Thanks, HILLARY.

cognitivedissonance: Sorry, that was directed at dairyqueenlatifa.

Ok. I love everybody, even Solro.

It's puzzling and problematic how, typical of Nintendo and their Damsels in Distress, the Nintendo Labo girl model is packaged inside of a box that must be unsealed and unwrapped. A strong Labo girl model wouldn't need a box, but this is of course another product of Toxic Masculine Culture. And once the Labo girl is unboxed she not only comes with instructions—reminiscent of problematic pickup artist manuals and online videos—but she must be constructed, like a subservient female having a male decide her personality for her. Building her from a flat box to a shapely figurine is problematic. Her initial "flatness" suggests she is worth more when her cardboard breasts become prominent, raising questions about Nintendo's policy regarding body shaming. Finally, completing the Labo girl kit provides a sense of euphoria, yet another woman presented as reward for the Presumed Straight Male Player.

She also costs $70, which stereotypes women as materialistic.

I have no idea what this is supposed to be, which means kids will love it.

No cardboard R.O.B. = NO DICE, NINTENDO!

This looks fun and it has the added bonus of being made of carboard, making it cheap, disposable and recyclable.
SolRo - 2018-01-20
Well, disposable and recyclable at least

badideasinaction - 2018-01-20
Yep. Also gives other developers some ideas for using the joycons in ways besides “attach it to a plastic gun”

Redford - 2018-01-20
Keep in mind that a not insignificant part of the cost is that each LABO kit comes with it's own custom software.

SolRo - 2018-01-20
It's not like Nintendo is known for underpricing their toys.

And the software value really remains to be seen...are they just small, short mini games or is each a full blown complex game that provides hours of non-repetitive gameplay?

ie, will it be 10 dollars worth of games with 60 dollars of cardboard or 50 dollars of games with 20 dollars of cardboard?

kingofthenothing - 2018-01-22
I ran this idea by a friend, who has 3 kids, and he said it looks like a mess waiting to happen. I told him there's always a mess with that many kids around, but he brought up the fact that he also has a cat, who would use these as scratching posts.

betamaxed - 2018-01-20
If nintendo was smart they'd also put out switch controlled cardboard cat toys. They'd be able to make money at the rate of which god has never seen.

What kid is going to have the patience to assemble a cardboard piano?
SolRo - 2018-01-20
The kind that has a patient and caring parent helping them assemble it as a bonding experience?

I don't know where you get those, so just hypothetically.

Maggot Brain - 2018-01-20
In my family this ends with my mom yelling.

SolRo - 2018-01-22
You had parents that actually tried things before giving up and yelling? You spoiled brat. I just got the yelling

chumbucket - 2018-01-22
I can see kids having far more respect for something that they had to assemble in order to play.

poopy - 2018-01-20
ur a sucker if u pay more than $20 for this
poopy - 2018-01-20
including the system i mean

garcet71283 - 2018-01-20
This would've been the best thing ever for me when I was 10. Good on Nintendo for making a toy that requires more know-how than simply opening a box and putting a disc in.

The current generation (millennial's kids) really struggles with the arts and crafts stuff that came very naturally when I was a kid. I can speak from experience having worked with kids on a regular basis for about 15 years, the skill set is getting worse and worse for these sorts of activities.

I sure hope they can handle this and it succeeds.

It seems cool, but what is needed is a Mario Paint that is fully updated to Youtube upload functionality. That would dominate.
