editor’s note

Is gaming addiction a mental health issue? With more and more focus being drawn towards mental health it is perhaps no surprise to hear of the first cases of clinically diagnosed game addiction in both the United States and the United Kingdom. The question is: are video games getting worse or are we only now taking this seriously? In Japan this has been a problem for some time. It’s one of the reasons that helped give rise to the phenomenon, hikkomori, a term used to described young adults not leaving their room for months on end. This is an extreme example and there are factors other than gaming. Is the addiction itself the cause of the behaviour or a withdrawal response from external reasons? What we have to remember is that these…

nintendo labo

Let’s face it, mould-breaking is a good thing. Without the innovators we just slip into using the same old things and never try anything new. Innovations have given us gunpowder, the printing press, the internal combustion engine, vaccinations, semi-conductors and nuclear fission. Innovations change the world as we see it, and while Nintendo’s Labo might not be in the same ground-breaking category as the motor car, it is still an innovative and is certainly a step in a different direction. But is it any good? The Labo system uses Nintendo’s Switch system – which itself was seen as innovative on its release –and used it to power a series of sturdy cardboard structures that are specially designed to do specific thing.
