Man... I would be all over a Splatoon 2 Pro Controller if it had any other color combination... Not sure I want to rock the pink/green even if it would be my secondary Pro controller.

I'm having a hard time deciding if I'm going to be sick tomorrow or not...

Posted in the other thread, but posting here again:

If anyone else is new to Splatoon, add me and we can be bad at the game together.

I totally missed the original (but I bought it to support a new I.P., just never really played it) so I hope to get into this one proper.

Really excited for tomorrow. Hoping I can install the game tomorrow morning before I leave for work.

Also really hope it's playable in portable. I know technically it is, what I mean is I hope I find it comfortable.

Having been wanting to play Splatoon since the first one was debuted at E3!


Buy it guys doesn't matter if you have one already.
...Why?

The Squids and the Octarians are still at war...

now i'm legit curious about Marina's backstory and her constantly worried look.

Is she a POW?
Is it a worried look or a smug anime girl look? It's hard to tell.

Are there any youtubers or twitch people that are good to watch if you want to learn this game? I never played the original splatoon and I don't have a switch yet but when I get one I want to pick up the sequel.

Very colorful OT, Boss!

It was $81.99 after tax so my mind is kind of freaking out. I'm hoping I love it enough that the purchase becomes fully justified. :'D


New Squid smell is great. RIP SP1 OT, though. It almost made it to a final thread. Almost. *MetalGearSalutegif*

Got my copy today, jumping into Hero Mode first but I might play a bit of online later, in the EU regarding time-zones etc.

I've theorized for a long time that Inklings and Octolings aren't "inherently" opposed (think kind of like how in the Paper Mario series, there are a lot of Koopas and Goombas who are just passive good guys). The scrolls in Splatoon 1 showed that Inklings and Octolings used to live together in harmony, but something happened along the way that exiled Octavio to Octo Valley where he controls primitive Octarians for his own nefarious purposes. The credits for Splatoon 1 also show an image where some Octolings get along with Inklings.

So my theory with Marina is presumably she knows many Inklings view Octarians and Octolings negatively and that's why she's a lot more submissive/anxious, but Pearl maintains a gung ho attitude to keep her motivated like a big little sister. Maybe she's an idol because she wants to bridge the gap between Inklings and Octarians, kind of like a positive icon.

I guess you can read into the class/racial divide undertones in there somewhere.
