So hey, Ink Brush coming tonight:



I also just want to pompously say that I'm nourished by the tears of Splat Rollers. They're so much of a joke, I can splat them even while standing on their own ink!



More like Splat LOLlers, amirite? Huh, huh? High five, anyone?

EDIT:
This is too precious. I'm gonna record all my battles from now on, just so I can collect these moments for posterity.

They've added a new map to the multiplayer rotation (though it was already in the single-player campaign so it's not too much of a surprise), and because it's new, it's in both Turf Wars and Splat Zones right now if you guys wanna try out good ol' Kelp Dome.



Looks a lot less chaotic than it felt offline, though of course they always add a lot of random obstacles in story mode to make it more interesting. Gonna see if I have time to test it out in unranked mode tonight.

EDIT - It's gigantic. I'd imagine it would be easy to score a lot of points if you wanted to grind, but people who are good at stealth and managing where enemy players are would have a field day with this map. Haven't tried Splat Zones though but I bet it's fairly chaotic too, a lot of paths to the center plus plenty of ways to ambush the enemy while they're en route.

I just got the game in the mail today! Huzzah!

I want to go through single player first, though, so that I can get some practice before going online and so that I can stop worrying about spoilers.

The new Camp Triggerfish map is really odd.

It's really separated for the first 2-odd minutes and then in the last minute it opens wide up with the side barriers opening up.

It also makes using the short ranged weapons really tough. Mrs. Xen has a lot of fun with the Inkzooka, though.

Also I'm still really bad at this game.

I beat story mode last night. The final boss battle was so great!


Oh yeah, and Squid Girl costumes confirmed to be coming to the US!

Also,

I beat it finally a couple nights ago myself. That was intense as heck. Made me really happy.

Then right after I met some goof named during random online battle Doodle and we flopped about best we could in several matches. Even when he was on the other team. Good reminders of why I got the game; to have fun and enjoy ridiculousness.

I think I might be finally getting the hang of Chargers too. I managed to get a few splats in a row several times. Even pissed off one guy enough he over-focused on trying to splat me and only me. (Turns out raging in a game meant for having fun doesn't really do you well.)

New game mode's out: Rainmaker!

I, er, haven't actually played Tower Control yet (though I've tried recon), but they both seem fairly similar: both teams are very aggressively fighting over a mobile object to protect to the enemy base. Tower Control has an always-moving tower that follows a set path, whereas you can take any path you want and at any pace you choose with the Rainmaker, while using it as a super-strong weapon (a charge-up Inkzooka) that slows you down – as long as you don’t take so long that the Rainmaker timer runs out and splats you for being too slow. Can't use specials while holding it either, but presumably an ally could use the Bubbler to protect you?



Just finished playing with goons in private battles to get a feel for it, and it's really fun. K/D ratios are insanely high though (I once ended up with 12/10) because everyone's hanging out near the Rainmaker, so I feel like skills involving respawns would be useful.

Pictured above is a quick set I made after one match once I realized how the game mode works: I got out my Traditional Apron that I just levelled up, which happened to have double-Quick Jump subs, on top of the usual gear for my .96 Gal. A set I'm theory-crafting would have Comeback and Quick Respawn on it (plus the usual Ink Resistance Up, Ink Recovery Up, and 2xInk Saver Main), though I'd imagine Run Speed Up would also be very good.



Anyways, if anyone wants the full Traditional chef set or the full SQUID GIRL set, we can just play a quick Private Battle so you can order it from me.

Rainmaker is really interesting, but it requires a higher standard of teamwork than Tower Control or Splatzones does. If your team is not working together you're not going to gain any ground whatsoever. It reminds me of Bombing Run from Unreal Tournament 2004.

I finally had a good day though - for the first time since I've owned the game I got my streak up to third tier!


We've currently got a second Wii U - we borrowed it from the local convention stock on the proviso that we unlock everything on it so it can be used for Splatoon Tournaments at the convention next year, so Mrs. Xenesis and I have been playing 2-Squads. It's a lot of fun to have a group of people in the same room playing along.

So this happened the other night.
And we ended up playing against them again tonight with Rainmaker. Fun match.

(In case you don't know, Gigi is the same Gigi that does Cucumber Quest, so that's awesome.)

Also I'm so happy Squid Girl outfit is in the game. I'm never taking it off.

For those of you who want to play a bit of Splatoon and still cannot yet buy the game, it looks like Nintendo has another demo run going on the 21st through the 23rd. From 3-5 all three days.

Yeah, that's... huh.

Kinda disappointed Hasbro didn't go with something like Transformers vs. My Little Pony.

Of course, we all know how that would end.

The new map is up, and it is big! There's so much ground to cover, and a lot of complex verticality to it. There are a lot of ways you can catch people off-guard. It's really neat!

Also, I'm level 13! I can finally get gear with three slots.
