I can't say it was perfect because I had some minor issues with the camera... But other than that, the demo was great. In fact, it was MUCH better than what I was expecting.

The controls were good, the weapons interesting and the gameplay was pure motherfuckin' fun.

Before this demo I was like: "meh", but now I'm gonna buy this thing day one.

It was fun
but it needs another kind of controls
the gyro is good
but this could be some great great game with two sticks control option

And the roller needs to be adjusted very unbalanced matches


You can change the controls. I played using both analog stick and no gyro sensor.

Really????

I thought i cant change

i will check  it with 2 stick in 9 hours thnx

btw i really liked it 



No complaints, was fun and very different. Paint roller for the win!
I know it was a limited demo, but didn't notice any lag or game breaking issues.
As i figured, voice chat is mute for this game, it's so chaotic there's no advantage to communicating.
Everyone knows they need to paint anything not their color, simple yet alot of depth to the fun. Day 1 confirmed.

Roller seems like the best weapon, but you're helpless against snipers, but initially seems very balanced

^ yep like everyone says, the rollers are op! While for me the sniper is the weakest. Its too hard to cover the map with it, and the aiming is really hard.

And YES! The game was AMAZING! It took me like around 3-4 matches to get used to the motion controls, but in the end it was really smooth. Cant wait to try all the new weapons once the game is out.

And see you guys in 9hours! + I think Purple is so far my fave colour here!

I don't know about OP, since i killed many of them.

But for claiming the ground they are incredible indeed, not only have a big AoE, but they are faster too. That said, more than 2 on the same team don't seem to work that well.

Having too much fun, I didn't even bother to change the gyro XD, and I think the rollers are just too fast in turning, I tried it on the two last rounds and I was beasting with it got even a 9-1 with it and 1023p lol

Lol at all the idiots with only rollers on their team. Sometimes they still won though, like the last battle. :(

My thoughts:

- Very smooth online, zero lag and only one disconnect in my first battle.
- It didn't take long to connect to a new battle.
- You can play retro minigames while waiting. Squid jumping is boring though.
- Gyro controls take some getting used to, but they're good.
- Super fun to sneak behind enemies as a squid and then splat them.
- I rarely used the map or super jump.
- Graphics are nice, but nothing amazing either.
- I'm super sweaty and I stink!



Did anyone have connectivity issues? Curious to see if people were unable to play or did Nintendo impossibly overcome 1st day server issues that plague every other online game.



Loved it. I can't wait to play more!



Bets:

1. If the Wii U sells closer to 10 million LTD by 1/3/2015 I win. If it sells closer to 9.5 million LTD by 1/3/2015 OfficerRaichu15 wins (winner gets 2 weeks of avatar control)--Lost.

Whoa, what the hell guys? The roller is like, the worst weapon. It's so easy to kill them.



Oh and my favorite color is the one that looks the most like jizz.
