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.

That's the most unbelievable part. My connection has been absolute crap today and even though it got a bit more decent a bit before the demo started, it was still bad... and yet I got absolutely no lag, no disconnects, no errors, no anything. It was flawless!

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

They can often get a surprise kill on you. Some of them were just hiding in little puddles and came out when you were in front of them. Or they just roll over you from the back. But yeah, they're easy to kill.

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

After you connect there is a BIG option that says "controls". There my friend.

My first impression: Gyro sucks. I'm using dual analog. No Pro Controller support = no buy. The second screen is literally useless. Detrimental, even. There were connection issues, but that's due to the traffic, which will not be there when people aren't all playing at the same hour.

The game was fun, but with it being an hour slice, it couldn't possibly hope to silence my worries. About lack of content.

The minigame was honestly as entertaining as that game. Playing a minima while the match sets up is genius. It's an awesome additi- Oh, wait. Please don't tell me it's fucking tied to amiibo. Of course it is.

Hey, relax. Squid jump is free i believe XD. Let's hope there are amiibo cards for splatoon too (or maybe they make enough).



Oh and about internet issues, the only error I got was at the start where we enter the game(tried like 7 times to enter) but "In" the game, no lag/delay whatsoever, and I only have a 3Mbps connection.

I actually thought the second screen was pretty useful for planning where you should go and who needs back up. I did die a lot though so I had more time to look at it lol.

Of course, if they surprise you it's an instakill, but they're really easy to avoid. Just keep your distance and shoot, they can't do anything. The game seems rather well balanced to me, other than snipers being really bad.



Yea sniper was hard for me to get the hang of. I'll keep trying though.

Snipers won't be bad during Splatzone and the Tower defense game.



I actually like the gyro controls here. Of course I still prefer analog sticks, but I wouldn't mind playing with gyro if I had to. I got to play close to 20 matches. I was already set on buying Splatoon, but this just made it a must have for me. My favorite weapon was probably the roller, even if it is a tad bit overpowered in some respects.



bet: lost
