$40 is the slimmed down base price. That just gets you the headset and gun.

$80 gets you the full set.

An extra $40 for a few sheets more cardboard! :shock:

That's a lot of money to throw at a kid on a disposable toy.

Is it really?? Wow - I hadn't seen that.

I wonder what the sales are like for Labo?

More aimed at the parent than the kid, who will likely cave for a peaceful life :lol:

Is Nintendo giving the same warning about VR that Playstation does, not for use with under 12s?
Surely Labo is aimed at kids of that age and younger so the VR part surely doesnt fit in that group?

Cuphead is coming to the Switch, including a physical release.

Also Cadence Of Hyrule is coming soon, which is a Crypt Of The Necrodancer game set in the Zelda universe.

Finally, I've held off Cuphead for ages with the expectation it would come to Switch.

Two releases of interest on the eShop – Impossible Mission and Robocod.

Impossible Mission looks like the version I had on the Vita, which was not as advertised. It was supposed to contain three versions – a new expanded game, the original game ‘enhanced’- original layout with the new graphics, and the C64 version. In actual fact, they all ran on the same engine – the C64 version wasn’t the original, it was the ‘enhanced’ game with the C64 graphics wrapped around it. What I so like is that they’re advertising it with the original artwork – that’s always looked iconic to me.

Robocod looks OK – seems to contain visual elements of the Amiga/MD and SNES versions, but from the video on the shop, they’ve only gone and replaced the original soundtrack!? I didn’t recognise the music anyways, though I never played the GBA version and I’ve also got a PS2 version kicking around that I’ve only ever loaded up once.

Both over priced at a tenner each – I think I paid maybe half of that for Impossible Mission on Vita, definite sale buys though.

I'm up for Robocod at half the price. I'm not paying a tenner for it, I don't like it that much, I'll probably end up only playing it for an hour.

Picked up Toy Car Racing and Bertram Fiddle ep 2. Didn't even know the second ep was out, so to get it in sale was a bonus as I really enjoyed the silliness of the first.

I know I like Robocod, I have it for my ST. I just don't like it £10 much when I've so much else to play on Switch already.

Its a good game, better than a lot of the indie dross that clogs up the eshop.

Yeah I was drunk buying, also bought Worms because it's Worms and I wanted to play Worms (a great game for when you are pissed because it doesn't require reactions).

Does Robocod still include Penguin biscuits?
