Yes skipped the game because of how it looked after watching only a few videos lol did not even try out the splat test on Wii U while owning one at the time. Thought it looked pretty bad looks and gameplay wise and a bit too kiddie for my tastes (at that time).
2 years later played the Splatoon 2 splat test and was like okay this was awesome i was obviously wrong.
Then i bought 1 for 20 bucks played through the story and lots of turf war after and then yeah i became a Splatoon fanatic, bought all amiibo and even want a tattoo now
I still find it hilarious myself too i think the only videos i watched were the E3 ones back then, never looked up anything Splatoon related after that. Guess i was in my edgy end teen years (19-20 at the time)
Finally time for OT2. Game is still immensely fun; made it into Rainmaker rank S, but now I feel like I don't belong there, lol. Not that I was carried, it's more that I had a ridiculous win streak where I did legitimately play really well and way better than usual, but now I'm getting totally wrecked.
People don't seem to understand that putting down over 1000p doesn't mean much if you got splatted several times and most of it got cleaned up. If the game gave percentages for how much of your team's ink at the end was actually put down by you, I think several aerosprays would be a bit surprised. They'd still beat others, but not by nearly as much, and largely because the weapons that are actually good at splatting covered for them. Turfing ability don't matter if you're dead.
That's not to say they don't have a place, they certainly do, but they're far from OP and having a team of 4 of them isn't exactly good.
I went through my gear earlier to make a Firefin set to farm up Sub Saver Chunks, and realized that I have no Firefin Shoes! That will slow things down a bit. Crossing fingers for luck rolling it on my other Gear.
I been thinking that Nintendo could make Salmon run possible for single player by changing it to a tower defense mode. Of course I love the way Salmon run is right now just thinking of ways they can add more single player content outside of hero mode.
Just played my first couple rounds of Turf War with the Splat Brella, I can definitely see it being deadly in the right hands, but I don't think its for me. It's cool having a shotgun weapon, but using it as a shield seems too expensive on ink to be particularly useful in a 1 on 1 fight. I love the idea though and maybe they'll make a variation that fits my playstyle more. Also the losing animation clips into your inkling's head ridiculously obviously, looks super bad
Yeah they should reprint em Splatoon 2 campaign makes em even more popular/known to newcomers and the Marina and Pearl amiibo's are probably months or a year or so off anyway. So might aswell produce some extra Squid Sister amiibo's in the meantime.
Unless they are planning on new versions or their Splatoon 2 hero mode versions.
