Nintendo Labo unlocks another childhood flashback of mine...

                     

So I wake up to this, only a few minutes ago.... And I have to say. This is actually pretty cool!

 Nintendo is out here, creating a means for kids to both enjoy video games and be creative at the same time. that's freaking awesome! Not to mention the fact that it encourages kids to understand concepts of engineering and design while having fun. Also keep in mind that unlike most of the STEM related products that have been gracing the Toy aisle, this is also aimed at both boys and girls, instead of solely for one and not the other (which is the way this should have been in the first place! If we're teaching kids engineering,  it's only logical to be teaching both sexes! much like we used to, back in the day.).

The best part is, It reminds me of the paper-craft books I used to buy from the book fair as a kid that would tech you how to make monsters and robots. Kids are naturally curious, and this is just fueling a means for them to be entertained and to learn at the same time.  Damn, this is smart. right down to the newly coined term "Toy-con", which calls back to Nintendo's pre-video game days, when they were selling the Ultra-Hand and converting old bowling alleys into light gun arcades.  I'm sure the price will be a little much for multiple kits, and all, but that's about the same for all the STEM toys that are trending now ( I mean. 40 bucks for a pixel programmable purse? seriously? ). We should keep watching to see how this turns out,

But seriously, how cool is that?

Saturday Bosscade - Under Night In Birth EXE:Late

                        


Did a make up version of Saturday Bosscade, last Sunday. Playing some UNIBEL. I think it's on my list for most enjoyable fighting games, due to the simplicity of the controls and the sheer amount of kickass music and characters. One of the surprises that I found was that it had my boy, Akatsuki from Akatsuki Blitzkampf. I haven't played that game in years, and he's just as badass in this as he was in his home-game!!

NEWS | Nintendo hiring & the difference between consumer and creator

                     

In this video I'm talking about Nintendo's hiring practices, and expanding on what Miyamoto expresses about hiring people who aren't just big fans of the series or "lifelong gamers", but people who are capable of finding different ways for consumers to play their games. Nintendo has always prided themselves on thinking "Outside of the box", and In my own opinion, I feel as if this is important to keeping the company atmosphere fresh and encouraging "against the grain" thought that will maintain interest for generations to come.

There's a lot more to this, so I suggest you check out the video itself, to get my full thoughts on the subject, but as Levar Burton often says. "You don't have to take my word for it"

Testing Stream, - Wolfenstein: The New Order .

                       

So I took the time to test out Restream.io, yesterday, and decided that it would also be a good time to actually play a game I've kind of walked away from a year ago. Wolfenstein: The New Order. I purchased the game for the Playstation 3 and got about as far as the museum stage, which I actually enjoyed, however I have not returned to the game in some time. With the Steam Winter sale, I managed to snag a copy of the game for pretty cheap and figured now would be a great time to actually attempt to finish the game I started. So that's what I'm planning.

I'm hoping that with restream I can actually produce the same streaming content while actually distributing it to not just the Youtube audience, but any budding Twitch audience who aren't as familiar with what I do on the main channel.

Only time will tell if this actually works in our favor.
