In the lead-up to sale events like the upcoming Amazon Prime Day 2024, you’ll often come across early price slashes across its range of tech and appliances, and with still a week to go until Prime Day, Amazon has already discounted one of the best Nespresso machines out there.

The Nespresso Vertuo Plus coffee maker is now available for $129 down from $199.95 in the US, and for £88.95 down from £200 in the UK – a huge 56% price cut. Despite this discount, its price has previously crashed as low as £59, but this is a rare occurrence. So, while its current sale price doesn’t quite match its lowest price of $104.89 in the US, a 35% drop makes it one of the best coffee maker deals right now for an appliance we’ve praised highly in the past.

When it comes to the best coffee machines, we’ve credited Nespresso for its convenience and easy-to-use functionality, so you don’t have to be a coffee connoisseur to navigate it.  

In our Nespresso Vertuo Plus review, this is what we praised it for along with its versatile variety of coffee pod flavors. Speaking of versatility, it can produce four single-server coffee sizes including Alto (414ml/14oz), straight-up coffee (230ml/8oz), the Gran Lungo (150ml/8oz), and a classic Espresso 40ml/1.35oz. 

The subject of the coffee pods themselves has always been up for debate, mainly because they can be the reason the machine becomes pricey to run. However, when you first purchase your Nespresso machine, it will come with a handful of pods with different flavor profiles to get you started. When it comes to buying fresh pods, thinking ahead of time goes a long way which can be the key to saving you some money, but when you look into it, each pod works out much cheaper than if you were to buy a good quality beverage from a coffee shop – and it tastes just as good.

Tears of the Kingdom Player Builds Incredible Mechanical Rabbit

Highlights

  • Tears of the Kingdom’s enduring popularity is partly due to its diverse gameplay options, allowing players to create unique contraptions in the game.
  • One player created a mechanical rabbit, equipped with lasers to take out enemies, impressing the community.
  • Creative gamers continue to showcase their detailed builds in Tears of the Kingdom.



One gamer recently showcased their engineering know-how in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom by creating an adorable albeit deadly mechanized rabbit. The trend of creating machines based on animals continues with this bunny build, catching the attention of the Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom community online.

Since its release in May of 2023, Tears of the Kingdom has become one of the most popular Zelda games of all time. One of the reasons for this success is due to the plethora of ways to play the game. While Breath of the Wild gave players greater license over how they played due to its massive open world, Nintendo took things even further in the sequel. Thanks to the Ultrahand and Link’s other new abilities, players can create all sorts of unique contraptions to alter gameplay. Now, even a year after launch, players are still coming up with some memorable builds.

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Player Creates Basketball Game for Moblins

One Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom player could be starting up their own Moblin basketball league thanks to the creative use of some items.

Taking to the Hyrule Engineering subreddit, a user known as kmarkow shared a mechanical rabbit they built in the game. The creation known as “Ruby the Remote Control Rabbot” features an impressive design that looks strikingly similar to a real-life bunny. True to its name, the Reddit user gave the rabbit a red nose and made it remote-controlled. In the video, Link operates a Zonai steering stick as the rabbit traverses the terrain. The creation also had a less pleasant side, as kmarkow revealed the rabbit was equipped with lasers, allowing it to take out Tears of the Kingdom enemies.

So far, this creation has been a hit with the Hyrule Engineering subreddit, with some users claiming it was one of the cutest builds they had seen in the game. In the comments, kmarkow shared how they were able to control the mechanized rabbit remotely. According to the player, they used a glitch, which they had learned about from other community members, to maneuver the build remotely with a Zonai steering stick. They also noted this was a “new and improved” version of the bunny. The creator revealed that this model was easier to build, could turn quicker, and looked more like the adorable animal.


Interestingly, kmarkow has a knack for recreating real-life creatures in the game with surprising detail. Previously, they built a replica of a mosquito in Tears of the Kingdom, complete with its long proboscis and pair of wings. Furthermore, they have shared Reddit posts of a sea serpent, a caterpillar bike, and much more.

While some fans are gearing up for the release of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom at the end of September, creative gamers like kmarkow will likely continue to get more mileage out of Tears of the Kingdom. Despite the lack of new DLC, Tears of the Kingdom‘s impressive list of abilities should keep players going for the foreseeable future, meaning more builds based on real-life animals could appear on the internet.

Pokemon Fans Call for Change to How Nicknames Work

Published

Highlights

  • Fans want Game Freak to allow nickname changes for event Pokemon and traded Pokemon in future titles.
  • The limitation on nicknaming Pokemon is causing frustration among players, who desire this ability.
  • While some rare instances have allowed renaming of event Pokemon, fans shouldn’t expect this restriction to change soon.



Pokemon fans aren’t happy about the restrictions on nicknaming their Pokemon in the games. A recent conversation highlights problems with the system and has fans urging developer Game Freak to change course in future Pokemon titles.

From the beginning of the Pokemon series, players who catch a new Pokemon are given the option to give the creature a nickname. While it isn’t mandatory, players sometimes give their Pokemon nicknames to help separate them from other catches of the same species, or even just for the fun of it. However, the way nicknaming in the game works is causing headaches for some fans, and has led to them wishing things would change.

Pokemon Fan Designs Incredible Convergent Forms for Drowzee and Hypno

A Pokemon fan gives the Psychic Pokemon called Drowzee and Hypno some sharp makeovers and shares their efforts for all to see.

Pokemon fan TheAzureAzazel shared their thoughts on Reddit, where many other players have since added their voices to the conversation. TheAzureAzazel points out that not being able to nickname event Pokemon is a huge inconvenience to them, and that it’s a frustrating limitation. With very limited exceptions, players are stuck with whatever nickname a Pokemon has when it’s given to them via an event. TheAzureAzazel says that even the ability to change the nickname just once would be great, but that’s not usually an option.


Pokemon Nickname Change Restrictions Frustrate Fans

Fellow players have agreed with TheAzureAzazel, and also pointed out that similar problems exist for traded Pokemon. If a Pokemon has a nickname when it’s traded, that name can’t be changed afterward. If a player knows the person they’re trading with personally, they may be able to ask them to change the nickname, either before trading the Pokemon or even by trading it back to do so. However, outside of those options, players are usually stuck with whatever nickname other trainers come up with.


There have been rare instances where players have been allowed to change the name of event Pokemon, but it’s not the standard. This has left some fans wondering why it was an option with select event Pokemon in past titles. For example, one fan pointed out that they were able to rename their event Shiny Zeraora from Pokemon Sword and Shield, but isn’t consistently something that’s allowed. Some fans were also interested in being able to revert a Pokemon back to its default species name, especially when faced with an offensive or weird nickname, but that’s not possible, either.


Game Freak regularly makes tweaks to the systems in Pokemon games, so it’s not out of the question that this could change at some point in the future. However, considering this has generally been a restriction since the Gen 1 Pokemon games, fans shouldn’t count on it.
