I feel incredibly conflicted about Splatoon.

On the one hand, it's a new IP with really fun gameplay and great music (and colors, etc.), but on the other hand it seems heavily online/competition-important and I tend to prefer to play offline or co-op, so even with the interesting offline campaign I don't know how much I'd enjoy the game. Still, again, it looks beautiful so I probably won't mind watching the higher-end matches once that kind of thing really gets going.

If I do get the game, I'll probably end up grinding the offline portions until I get really good gear, power it up to my likings, then only play with friends anyways.

I mostly feel that probably is what I will do too, but who knows; I may get into competition a lot more. At least there's no horrendous voice chat crap, and the gameplay looks fun enough to ignore losing a lot probably

I'll be able to tell if I can get into the testfire2 event.

I'm pretty sure I've said my stance on the game already, but here it is again...

It definitely looks like a fun game to play, and a decent campaign to boot. That being said, there's just something.. odd about the game I can't quite place, like I'm not sure I'd buy it for myself. I'd totes play it at a friend's house if they owned it, or if I got it for a holiday I'd play it here and there, but...

I got to play it twice during the Global Testfire, and it was great. I very much want it!

I just wish there was more than one hairstyle option to choose. I'm not a big fan of top-knots, and I don't want to just hide it with a helmet or something.

I will be inking. Heck, Amazon Prime is even giving me a discount, so I can't pass it up!



My fancy-pants capture device and software can supposedly do live streaming to Twitch or YouTube at 1080p60, so if I can set that up, you Julers might be able to watch our battles from my perspective.

No custom lobbies for friends until fucking August?

I was excited for this game, but the moment they said "oh yeah we have these modes and maps and custom friend games but they won't be in until later" makes me want to wait it out because it just feels like an unfinished game at this point. For $60.

A shame, too. It's the first Nintendo game in a long time that is just oozing with style and personality and it is completely hindered by Nintendo's incompetence for basic online features that should be in the game at launch, not 3 months after the fact.

Unpopular opinion, I know, but come the fuck on.

I'd consider picking up a Wii U to play this depending on what people actually say about the game after it's released. It looks like a good time. It's pretty likely we'll hear about dlc for it at E3.

You'd be surprised cuber, I've had staff of Nintendo wikis have no clue about the game as of a week ago...

How? Splatoon stuck out in my mind for a few reasons when it was shown off at E3 last year. For one, it is a new IP for Nintendo. The game is wonderfully colorful. The game also looks like fun. That staff editing Nintendo wikis must not keep up with Nintendo unless it was before the GameCube era.

What type of Nintendo wikis though? Ones for specific games or ones for just Nintendo in general? Because both of them seem highly unlikely, especially the latter.

Nintendo's doing a shit ton of work promoting the game. (Big ass banner on the eShop, that Tumblr blog with the art contest, the global testfire.) So it seems highly unlikely ANY Nintendo fan wouldn't already know about it.

you and me both

I totally appreciate Nintendo doing something different--it's fantastic--but competitive multiplayer shooters of any kind, no matter the bells and whistles, just aren't my thing.

Maybe I'll pick it up in a year from now, but for right now, I'm definitely cautious because of my own tastes

I'm just hoping it incites the desire to play that led me to give Team Fortress 2 a few hundred hours of play over the years.

Because while I'm tired of TF2, I do still really enjoy the team-based objective style game and this looks like it'll fit the bill nicely. Hopefully I'm awake at whatever ungodly time the US-testfire redux is so I can give it a shot.

Hm, 7:30 am to 8:30 am on a Sunday is...doable. One of the very few disadvantages to being one of those crazy importers.

Nintendo has been advertising the game pretty much any chance they have gotten.

The universe has decided that I'm not allowed to play Splatoon:

-Woke up at 7:40 am, just by chance.
-Couldn't log into the testfire because it was swamped.
-Internet then proceeded to inexplicably die from 8:15 to 11 am
-Find out afterwards they extended the testfire by another hour due to server issues
-Rage.

>

Anyone else get to have fun with the testfire at least?

Edit: The IRC captured this perfectly:
