Podcast time, my friends! Certainly plenty to talk about in this week's show. Perhaps we can even get some Nintendo Labo action going during today's show! We'll see how it goes, but no matter what, we'd love to have you join us!
Since our last blog post in October we’ve been busying away on a whole host of fixes and features so we wanted to give you an update on what you can expect to see in the coming months. First of all…
For those who have been asking about progress on Survivor, we can report that the development of this feature is currently on hold. Right now, the team is focused on enhancing the LEGO Worlds experience in other areas. We’ll be keeping you informed of our plans to expand the game in the future so look out for more exciting content and updates soon.
LEGO Worlds was designed for builders and adventurers of all ages so we’re working on some enhancements to the tutorials and controls to make everyone’s time in the game much more enjoyable. The game has been out for over 12 months now (WOAH!!) so we know lots of you are accustomed to the current control style – rest assured we’ll be ensuring there’s an option to retain similar controls. We’re also implementing loads of other enhancements and features but we’ll save that for another day. All we’ll say for now is they’re really rather cool…
Since launch we’ve released loads of free content that was available for a limited time so we’ve bundled it all up and released it as a huge free to download pack on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. That’s over 25 characters, 30 Brick Builds, 250...
Guys check it out, some of those character emblems are Diddy Kong’s and other characters we haven’t seen yet!

SimTower, Seaman, and Odama creator Yoot Saito has revealed that years ago, he worked on a DS project codenamed Mario Motors. Obviously the game never ended up coming together, but here are some details Saito shared with Dtoid.
- Saito, Shigeru Miyamoto and Satoru Iwata were friends, and the three would often get together to discuss ideas
- Saito was asked by Iwata what he was currently interested in
- Saito was currently interested in how things like watches, camera frames, and MacBooks were made
- this was an idea he "really wanted" to make into a game
- Iwata and Miyamoto thought Saito should give the game idea a try, so they gave him the green light to move ahead
- Saito started work on Mario Motors, "a game where you created engines"
- the game involved "shaving and sculpting out of a chunk of metal to make a cylinder which decides the ability of your engines."
- he wanted to teach players how acceleration works in an interesting way
- Saito thought about having players blow into the DS microphone to do this, but feared kids would get out of breath
- as to why Mario Motors never came together, Saito said "I can't tell you why, but please guess."
Pokemon GO has been helping players in all sorts of amazing ways, from exercise to socializing and much more. Today we can add another bit of good news to the collection.
83-year-old Homer Howard suffers from dementia, and unfortunately had gone missing. He was reported missing by his family, but authorities had no idea where Homer had disappeared to. Lucky for him, a Pokemon GO player just happened to be out and about, and found Homer wandering around Kenney Shields Park in Covington, Kentucky. This park is 30 miles away from where Howard lives, and no one knows how he managed to get so far from home.
Allison Hines spotted Howard making his way through Kenney Shields Park, but at that time, she had no idea he had been reported missing. Something in Hines' mind told her to stop playing Pokemon GO and talk to the man, and it was a good thing she did! Homer has now been returned home, and Allison can get back to the very important job of catching Pokemon1
Through careful deductive processes, we can gleam that this Custom Range Blaster is a “Custom” version of the “Range Blaster.” Hah, science is truly wondrous! This new weapon has the same stats as the Range Blaster, but also comes with Curling Bombs and the Bubble Blower: two great ways to pin down the enemy. This kit is perfect for players who want to lock down the battlefield.

The box includes an A3 sized Disgaea The 15th Anniversary Edition Crystal Board, laser engraved with characters from the Disgaea series. This crystal board is why the package is so pricey, coming in at $1,300!
