Nintendo Labo: Toy-Con 04 VR Kit Review - Cardboard Magic

With all the high-end hardware requirements typical of VR gaming, you'd think of the Nintendo Switch as the least likely candidate to adopt it. But one of the many things Nintendo is unequivocally good at is making the most of its tech and working within its limitations. The new Labo VR Kit is yet another example. While it doesn't always overcome its inherent shortcomings, Nintendo's latest cardboard-based do-it-yourself package cleverly transforms the Switch into a light, inventive virtual reality gaming experience with the tools to go beyond the initial library.

First things first: You have to build. Thankfully, assembly is part of the fun. Like the previous Labo packages, the software contains detailed and digestible step-by-step instructions, which are animated to show you how to put everything together without a hitch--the encouraging communication also helps take the edge off the laborious, time-consuming aspect of it all. Construction is almost fool-proof since each cardboard sheet has precisely cut lines and slots for everything to be folded and snapped into place. There's no denying the satisfaction of seeing little bits of cardboard gradually come together as an intricate device solidly held together by rubber bands, exact creases, and plastic grommets.

Fortnite Week 7 Secret Battle Star Location (Season 8 Discovery Challenge Guide)

We're nearing the end of Fortnite Season 8, but there's still plenty to do before Season 9 of the hit battle royale game inevitably arrives. Week 7's challenges are now available across PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch, and mobile, giving players another assortment of tasks to complete. Clearing these will help level up your Battle Pass, which in turn will unlock some of this season's new cosmetic rewards.

If you're a seasoned Fortnite veteran by this point, you'll know there's a secondary reason to complete as many challenges as you can. If you finish all of the ones from a given week, you'll complete a related Discovery challenge, the reward for which is a special loading screen that contains a subtle clue leading you to a free Battle Star (which levels your Battle Pass up by one tier) or a Banner (which can be used as a profile icon) hiding somewhere around the game's map.

Complete seven weeks' worth of challenges this season and you'll earn the loading screen pictured below. This one features Luxe, the Legendary skin you can unlock at tier 100 of the Season 8 Battle Pass, plundering a treasure-filled cave. However, if you look closely at the left-hand side of the image (behind the words "Battle Royale"), you'll spot an unusual etching on the cave wall. This'll lead you to this week's free Battle Star.

Avengers: Endgame Prep - The Marvel MCU Watch Order That'll Get You Up To Speed

about X hours ago from

Last year, fans of Marvel's Cinematic Universe watched as the Mad Titan Thanos obliterated half of all life in the known universe with a simple snap of his fingers. Among the casualties were numerous heroes and in just a few days time the mission to bring down Thanos and undo some of his devastating actions will begin. Avengers: Endgame hits cinemas worldwide on April 25 and will be the culmination of numerous storylines interwoven throughout multiple MCU movies.

Naturally, that means that for those who want to relive the journey--or even experience it for the first time--time is running out to get caught up, and doing so is a mammoth task. So, to make things a little bit easier we've put together a watch order that lays out the ideal path through the many MCU flicks, which will give you the best viewing experience you can have.

You may think that you can just go back and watch the MCU movies in the order they were released, but since they aren't chronological events can happen parallel to each other or reference each other. Because of that, there's a great deal of merit in watching them in the order suggested in the video above.

Get 3 Months Of Xbox One Game Pass For $1 Starting Thursday (US)

Get 3 Months Of Xbox One Game Pass For $1 Starting Thursday (US)

There's no better time to sign up for Xbox Game Pass--not only are six new games expected to be announced for the service tomorrow, but Amazon has been running a deal where you can buy a three-month Xbox Game Pass and get three months free. Now, an even better deal is on the horizon: starting Thursday, Microsoft will offer new and inactive subscribers three months of Xbox Game Pass for just $1.

While the deal hasn't been promoted by Microsoft yet, you can find the details buried toward the bottom of the Xbox Game Pass sign-up page under Description. The offer will go live this Thursday, April 11, at 9 PM PT / Friday, April 12 at 12 AM ET and be available until May 13 at 12 AM PT / 3 AM ET. You can't combine this offer with other promotions, and you can claim it only one time per account. After the three months are over, you'll be charged the full monthly price unless you cancel.

Xbox Game Pass generally costs $10 per month, so this is a great opportunity to get three months for over 96% off. New subscribers can already sign up and get their first month for $1, so this deal is basically an extension of that one.
