I thought it was great! I was amazed by how the game runs and plays so smoothly. One thing that I hope is in the full version is the ability to change the controls, so that you don't have to use motion controls to control the camera. Other than that, it was so great!

Going to be playing again tomorrow!

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

I imagined they could be good at other game modes, but for turf war they just plain out suck.

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).


I belive that Squid Jump, Squidball, Squid Racer and Squid Beatz are free while a fifth will be unlocked after completing all challenges (including amiibo challenges)

EDIT: Or maybe I'm wrong...there seem to be conflicting reports

Since many missed this: on the screen where you select weapon, press the + to go the the control menu.



And i like how when the two rollers from seperate teams bump to each other they both die

Or if you hit behind them, they only they die? I didnt try that, but i do know that if they are a squid, only them can die.



Pocky Lover Boy!

This game is a lot of fun so far. Gyro controls are well implemented but I still lean towards traditional full analog control. This is a great 3rd person shooter and I am tempted to wake up early to play another hour. I think that this game will sell quite well.

By the way... light green rollers all day ;)

Oh ok! I knew there had to be some way. Thanks for letting me know! I'll be sure to remember that for tomorrow :D



   

It was pretty awesome, had a lot of fun with the roller. Hated gyro controls though, kept running into walls then getting killed.

Yeah, I already figured that out before this demo actually. :p 



My impressions are:
The game is fun as fuck!
Gyro sensor aim sucks even with right stick
noticeable lag of other player at times and was kicke out of my 1st match(though I've seen this said a lot)
The oil rig map is a little to big to only be playing with 4 player teams. Actually, I think the teams should be a bit bigger even on the other map.
I only used the splatter gun or something like that. But I think I will use that over other weapons due to enjoyment of it. But roller seem to almost be a bit OP
I was told by my brother I play kid games.
