Farewell to 2020 Charity Stream

2020 has been a bit naff, hasn’t it, so what’s a better way to say farewell than to spend some quality time playing games with others while also supporting all the healthcare workers that have been working endlessly during the COVID-19 Pandemic? This Thursday we’ll be doing just that. We have a nice schedule of different games to play on Nintendo Switch we can all play together live on Twitch. In addition to our line-up of online gaming, we will also be hosting a fundraiser, raising money for the NHS Charities Together organisation to show our support for the countless healthcare workers who have received the brunt of this hellish year.

During the live stream, there will also be a chance to win a £50 Nintendo eShop voucher. There are a variety of ways to increase your chances of winning, though some of them won’t be clear until the actual day, so it is definitely worth tuning into the stream for further improve the odds.

You can check out our full schedule and info on how to enter our giveaway after the break!

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!

REVIEW – Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit

Mario Kart is a beloved multiplayer series from gaming’s most well-known series. Every Nintendo platform since the SNES has had a version of Mario Kart in some form or another and has even branched out to mobile devices and VR arcades. The Nintendo Switch is a tiny bit different where, up until now, the console only has a port of a previous title rather than a whole new game. Enter Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, not only is it the first brand new Mario Kart on Switch, but it also provides a unique new experience through the wonders of augmented reality (or AR).

Does Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit have what it takes to win glory over Rainbow Road, or is it worse than receiving a coin in first-place? Find out more in our review, after the break!

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC that we need

Recently, Nintendo made a statement that they haven’t finished updating Mario Kart 8 Deluxe quite yet. The company proved that they were dead serious when they dropped the new Breath of the Wild update a couple weeks ago. This got me thinking though, we’ve yet to receive any additional premium content for Deluxe compared to the original Wii U version.

You could say that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe already has so much content, so why do we need more. Quite simply put, we’re a greedy bunch, and savour the idea for more content when we’ve already logged 100 or so hours on the title.

So what other ventures could Mario Kart 8 Deluxe make? Find out some of our ideas, after the break!

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Gets Labo Support

Back in April, Nintendo released the innovative Nintendo Labo kits. These kits allowed users to create a range of different cardboard toys for use with the software, as well as create their own inventions. One of the creations in the Variety Kit were the motorcycle handlebars.

Today, Nintendo released a brand new update for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe which allows you to get more immersed in the crazy karting action. You can now use the Motorcycle ToyCon to race your way through the tracks of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe! Once updated, just enable JoyCon support for each player using the ToyCon, and you’re all set.

Additionally, Nintendo also said that they will bring even more Labo compatibility to other titles in the near future, so don’t recycle those kits just yet!

If you still haven’t tried out either Nintendo Labo or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, you can check out our Labo review here, and our Mario Kart review here!
