    I've been waiting for this episode on the svod beta site, but I can't wait any longer. I needs me Glitch, Please.


    Re: Trolls.

    Humans are familial creatures. We have been all the way back to many centuries of our BCE days. That hasn't changed. What has changed is that our ability to affect our surroundings is muted by having surroundings that are at a global scale. We need to see our actions have an effect as we're growing up.


    When our communities were what we could see, that was easy. We did something, it had an effect, good or bad, and we learned from it. We need that. Nowadays, we rant and rave and nothing happens. It's just a 1-pixel blip in a sea of static the size of the land surface of the world. Nothing we do seems to have any effect.


    When growing up, we never get to learn actions and consequences anymore. So, those who were born into the Internet age (without the necessary extra supervision that's required) need to affect things somehow and know no consequences of it. (The Internet Babysitter is an awful teacher.) The easiest way to affect things is to destroy them.


    It's not watching the world burn. It's needing to affect what we know but not having the learning experiences of consequences that we also need when growing up.


    Where we've gone wrong: "Parenting". We are raising kids in an environment that is unfamiliar to us - and now, those kids are raising their own kids based off the same ignorance. It takes a lot of hands-on parenting (from just one caring guardian - anything more is a bonus), and instead, the Internet is being used as a pacifier. This is the result.


    Re: LABO

    We have dogs. Dogs will destroy it. Kids and Pets. It's always Kids and Pets. Warning labels. Megastore sections (right next to each other usually).


    I really, really hope it's pronounced like Lay-bo, because of a similarity to the word for a body part. It's probably more like lah-Bo, though.

    Per the Horizon discussion for anyone looking to pick it up (and I highly encourage it because that game is incredible): There is an in game indicator for the DLC, but it doesn't just pop up when you load your save. There are a few (3?) quest givers that can lead you there. They all show up on the map and you can filter what icons show up now. Also in response to what Gus was talking about with the 2 Fireclaws: while it is a tough fight remember that you can Override one of them to fight for you while you take out the 2nd. That should make things a bit easier.

    Nintendo Labo is dope. If they are selling the patterns people could make the items out of more permanent materials. First get Labo in cardboard and then maybe someone sells them out of maybe plastic. Ryan you hope you kid is good? He is the Mad Prince! He has your blood, he will soon grow to put animals in holes just like his dad.

    I'm sure that someone will upload the cardboard kits info online for DIY. And thrid parties will release plastic versions at a lower price.

    I'd like to get some clarification:  they are treating lineal games different than open world games, correct?

      Yes.

    $70 makes more sense for Nintendo Labo kits if they do have a game included, but if that game is unusable without the cardboard model, and the cardboard model is easily destroyed, then it starts to seem very expensive again.  So yeah, I hope they do sell (affordable) cardboard replacements.

    If something happened to Ryan's twitch I have confidence in the mods over there that they would handle it.  Not to mention that the Mad House wouldn't tolerate things of that nature either.

      <3 I do appreciate the automatic assumption that "the mods would handle that". It was very sweet.

    Nintendo labo looks great fun for a while i wonder what its going to be like after 2 weeks though


    just think though (this will never happen) use the bike as a starter and 2 of the pedals you can make a reasonable facsimile of a racing sidecar (so lay down throttle rear brake as pedals) slap the switch itself in a "helmet" then have a 2nd helmet and switch for 2 player coop double dash style mario kart as they can then spin round and fire weapons from the sidecar and with motion controls probably even shift weight to aid the driver

    Ashley, what I've always done for the Blitzball grind is, once I just need the wins and not levels, just score a quick goal, get the ball back, then go sit in my own goal post with Brother because he can out race everyone and then nobody will go that far in. You can cheese the crap out of it and just put the controller down if needed.

    To comment on the whole wanting to keep players playing a game discussion, Square is doing that just fine with Final Fantasy XV with its events and updates. People tend to go back to that game just for the events or the new game plus that allows you to do more things in the game you never could before. I don't know if Square Enix is considered a Triple A developer/publisher, but given they make  Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy, that can be argued to be very linear JRPGs, they don't have much of a problem getting people to go back to their games from my perspective. Same with Atlus and the Persona series making it very difficult to do everything you can in the game with one playthrough. It's doable, but it requires very good time management. They also kept a secret boss fight in the new game plus in Persona 5 which makes me want to go back in and play so I can try to beat that boss.

    First thing, in Horizen there is a guy somewhere to give you a quest that leads you to the DLC, buy you have to be near him to see it, I think.  Next on the subject of single player games not making enough money, lets take a look at the amount that CEOs and stock share holders are making, they could spend that extra 50 or maybe even 100 million on good single player games but they would have to take a pay cut.  It's greed pure and simple.

      First thing, Horizon. Second I don't think you listed a single fact. Just I thinks and maybes.

    Ryan is absolutely right with his fears of Labo. its a really cool gimmick it honestly is but it just is going to be a massive time and money sink for parents that would be better filled with a big tub of Lego.
