There hasn't been a charger that looked as cool and futuristic as the Y Team PS4 charger. The docking station allows two controllers to be charged simultaneously with fast-charging capabilities. The LED lights that make the dock look cool also functions as an indicator, turning blue once the controllers are fully charged. The only downside to this amazing product is that the charging time is doubled when both controllers are plugged in. With only one controller charging, charging time is only 2.5 hours. With both controllers plugged in, it increases to 4 hours of charging time.
Another Amiibo toy figurine to add to the collection. The KoopaTroopa was one of the enemies in the original Super Mario games but have since been a cute and friendly companion in some games. Makes some of us guilty in stepping onto a lot of these creatures in the original games. With the Amiibo toy, we can finally interact with them and bring these fuzzy creatures in-game by scanning them into the controllers. Secret extras and features await that only an Amiibo toy can unlock inside the game.
The Nintendo Labo was one of the first accessories of the Switch that I encountered. I saw a video ad online and couldn't help but think about how fun and creative those kits look. These "Toy-Cons" enable the gamer to have an interactive experience while playing by building five different projects from scratch. Made from cardboard material, these toys can be customized with stickers, markers, paint, and even new parts that the gamer can build. Once done, these toys are placed with the controllers of the Switch and can then be used to play different games on the device.

Remember that time when Pokemon Go was all the crazy and people were hailing it as the future of gaming even before its release? Yeah, that was a crazy year. People would roam mindlessly all over the streets searching for rare Pokemon, even if it took them all day. At least gamers were finally out of their couches and exercising their bodies. This accessory to the game lets users get notified about in-game events even when they're not on their screen. That's great news since what they were doing is dangerous. Now they can focus on where they're going without worrying that they'll miss the rare Pokemon because the Go Plus will notify them also when there's a Pokemon around.
