New update lets you remap buttons on Nintendo controllers. Yes!

Woo hoo! Just tested this out; works perfectly with the 8bitdo M30, since the Switch recognizes it as an official Pro Controller. Yup, Sega Genesis Classics just got a WHOLE lot more playable.

Are those Labo VR kits really good for kids? I don’t expect high quality VR but if it’s good enough for kids to enjoy I may try and get them all.

Are those Labo VR kits really good for kids? I don’t expect high quality VR but if it’s good enough for kids to enjoy I may try and get them all.

I've used VR across pretty much all levels, as I've used the bottom of the barrel, and the most expensive amusement level VR and it's OK for what it is. My son is 14 and he used the VR probably longer than he used the other sets, but I'll even say at $20, any of these is probably a solid deal. The VR is very basic, but it does work for the most part, like all VR, it's just really low in resolution, but that's why it's probably perfect for kids, as their level to please is much lower than most adults.

 

While the normal asking price is a bit much, besides using these for basic games on the NS, you also get to build the stuff, and that may be more fun for some, and less for others. My son loves building and using, and I just ordered him the Robot bundle this morning, as it's the only one he didn't have. It's also the most basic of the offerings, as it pretty much only offers one thing, while the others have much more content. My buy in for this set was $20, and I knew it would get there at some point.

 

So yeah, for an entry level VR kit, were the bulk of the cost is gone, since most will already own the NS, it's a good use of the tech for something that ain't terrible. By no means would I recommend anyone buy an NS to use this VR, but if you already have one, then it's not to bad, especially on the cheap.

All the 3D Sega 3DS games aren't on sale anymore? Thought they'd last longer, I shouldn't have procrastinated :(

 

How often do they go on sale?

They’ve been going on sale the last couple of times there’s been a Sega sale on Switch, and those have been happening every 2 months or so since November. It could be a little while.

New update also FINALLY lets you transfer data between NAND and SD Card. :bouncy:

Not sure why it took them this long to allow something as basic is this but it is welcome.  I can finally move some earlier downloaded games off my system memory!

You might have just sold me on this. My 9yr old would love it. Does it have a game with it? Also I read you can use the VR with Botw.

Yes. You can play BotW in VR. Odyssey as well, but it is its own game mode, IIRC.

So annoying. Now I just want folders, themes are nice but I’m also fine with just dark.

But I kinda fixed the SD card issue prior to this update. When I bought a new SD card I just deleted all games from the system (also when I changed to the new switch from V1) and then re-downloaded everything on the new 512gb SD card.
Now if you have slower internet or data caps... wasn’t an option.

Remapping is a welcome change also.

THEMES. Why are there not themes? It seems like they'd be perfect. And don't get me started on how I want folders.

As others have already stated, it works with a few "N" titles for the VR experience, but nothing revolutionary. It does come with games on the disc, but the one being offered here is just the blaster set(which is probably the best game on the disc), but there are other attachments in the full VR set not included here. So depending on a child's interest, this set may not be the best choice.

 

This is for sure a boys style set, but the other stuff in the full set, may appeal to boys and girls, as you have picture taking and art stuff in the full set. So if blasting stuff is what the child is in to, the blaster is pretty cool and for sure the best item in the set, and why it is offered as the only one on it's own. Even not having the other stuff to use, I think $20 is solid for this stand alone set, and it also allows to use the VR in those games already mentioned, so that's more icing on the cake.

I did not grow up with a genesis. I am also a bit lazy. Would you mind sharing what you mapped everything to? I started to mess with it and it blew my feeble mind. Thanks!

Don’t feel bad; this also took me a surprising amount of mental calculus ;) This configuration also works perfectly for the Genesis games included in Konami’s recent Contra and Castlevania compilations. Those already allowed for button configuration in-game, but it’s nice to just have a system-level custom controller profile that’s easy to enable/disable.
EDIT: these settings assume that the firmware-level button config on the M30 is set to default. I.e. I haven’t swapped the A/B or X/Y buttons with the controller’s built-in options.

That's really evil of them to say we need the other games to get all three 40x30 giant puzzles on S4. I started with S3 and I'm still trying to complete it. Each puzzle it taking 30+ minutes because I refuse to use hints or allow any mistakes. Buying 3 more games is more puzzles than I'll ever need... who am I kidding, I'm probably going to buy them anyway :oops:

No, they don't use the touch screen, but it hardly changes the experience. You will get accustomed to the controls very quickly.

The Picross sale sounds like a good deal, but I've been playing Mario's Picross on my 3DS for over 4 years and just recently unlocked the star difficulty.  Rare as these sales are, they'll probably happen again before I'm in need of another Picross game.

 

Also, Monster Boy just hit a new low at $18.

The Picross series is good, but they're rather bland.  Picross : Lord of the Nazarick and PictoQuest add some atmosphere to the puzzles.  Piczle Cross Adventure just launched today and also looks really good.  Piczle Colors and Voxelgram are also fun twists on the picross formula.
