Default Splatoon!

So anyone else got this game? I was lucky and got it in the mail on Thursday, and spent most of my time on the game the past days. It's really fun :D

If I were to get into an online multiplayer game, I'd probably get this one.

The concept seems pretty interesting and pretty much everyone who's played it has called it "fun" with no thesauruses or empty buzzwords that journalists use, which can only be a sign that it actually is fun. Nintendo seems to do fun well so if I get a chance to play it at some time, I'll check it out.

People criticise it for no voice chat but if I get matched up with strangers over the internet I'd prefer I not get called every word in existence by 12 year olds.

Haha, indeed, and that's pretty much the reason they left it out. I kinda wanted voicechat with friends, but that might be hard to do since you're always on 4-against-4-teams and unless you have 7 other friends to play with at the same time, you'll get paired up with strangers anyway. Plus, as someone who played it a lot I can tell you that... it doesn't really lose anything from not having it, there's not a whole lot of strategy you can discuss in the 3 minutes you get (though I must admit, I've never played online multiplayer with voice chat before... and from what I've heard about it, I don't particularily want to except with friends.). What you do have is the option of sending a few messages by clicking buttons - "To me" to give a signal to other players to join where you are, and "Nice" which I guess is just for complimenting another player's skills?

This is one of the few online multiplayer games I've actually managed to get into, which can only be a good sign. The single-player campaign isn't too bad either!

I actually went out Friday to buy the Splatoon Wii U bundle. However, the Best Buy I went to hadn't received it yet, so I paid it off. Now I just need to wait and hope it gets here!

AAAAAAAAAAAAH I LOVE IT

My sis and her bf bought it and they let me play a bit and it's so cute! it's pretty fun to watch, too, which is what I've mostly been doing.

There's some awesome Miiverse art there too, which makes me very happy

I love Korrina and I don't care what anyone thinks! :P *snuggle's her* I think she's a real hottie and if you think poorly about me for having a harmless fictional crush or for simply liking another girl thats your own problem. *squeals happily^///^*

I should get back into it. I haven't played since before they raised the level cap and added a whole bunch of new features. I want to check out all the new maps.

I still love the fact that one of the weapons is literally a NES zapper. Now it just needs some kind of bazooka-type weapon based on the Super Scope.
