Ended up cancelling my pre orders. Don't have much time as it is and I have tons of games to work my way through so was a toss up between Nintendo Lob-on or God Of War on PS4. Now having a 4K tv and being a big GoW fan it was an obvious choice. Still think it looks fantastic and will definitely get it at some point.
Labo is an experience where creating and building are just as much fun as playing. It eases you into this world: at the beginning, you’re simply folding cardboard. But just a few hours later, you’re trying to figure out how to turn a box into an interactive drum kit.
The Good: Incredible cardboard designs. Really well-done step-by-step instructions. Labo's software and games are fun to play and explore. There's a lot to do, and a sense that many secrets await unlocking. The Bad: Yes, it’s mostly just cardboard. The kits can be daunting for younger kids. There's a risk of things breaking, so handle with care. And, where do you store all those large cardboard things later on? The Bottom: Line Nintendo Labo is a fun and unique Switch add-on -- a Lego-meets-Ikea cardboard construction set that will unlock kids’ real-world creativity.
My 11-year old reviews Nintendo Labo: 'I think it's going to be the hot new craze'
[…]Meanwhile, as a parent, I think Nintendo has struck the right tone for kids. The onscreen instructions supply encouragement--(e.g.: “Push it through the opening as far as it will go. (It might be difficult, but you can do it.”)) Sam and I appreciated that you can easily manipulate the touchscreen to view animated instructions from different angles, and easily rewind or skip ahead as necessary.
I'm really hyped for this. I just wish I had the imagination to go along with it. Ah well, it's going to be fun making the supplied stiff with my kids and then we'll tinker from there and see what we can come up with.
