Forums - Nintendo Discussion - So i just played Splatoon for a large amount of time

For me, it has been the most addictive online multiplayer shooter experience I've had in years.

Ranked mode and single player is where its at. Also getting those new guns and getting really good at the game, DLC is gonna keep this game fresh aswell. Its a nice Wii U game to have if you feeling for a shooting game



It looks really interesting, but I wish there was more modes/multiplayer options. It's a great job for a new IP, but time will tell if they fix the problems, get more creative, and out-do themselves in the sequels.

Knowing Nintendo's track record, it's more likely than not that they'll do just that.

In the meantime, I'll get the game and reward Nintendo for actually taking a risk.



That's cool and all, but are you a kid or a squid now?

I think the lasting appeal relies on different strategies, modes, upcoming dlc and stuff. I think people will get better and better with time and there'll be the need of more skills and other strategies to win.

Sounds like CoD

Truth be told ... COD must be a fun game. If it wasn't it would've fizzled out as a franchise 6 or 7 years ago. 

It's a fun, simple shooter that has some addictive multiplayer mechanics, it's the perfect "I just had a hard day at work, now I want to crack open a beer and play some multiplayer". 

I get it even though it's not a game I play. Game fans are too wrapped up in every game having to be a Picasso or something. Sometimes you just have an itch and want to scratch it, and COD does that. 

Truth be told, Nintendo should make their "own" COD FPS shooter. Doesn't neccessarily have to be a military based shooter, but something competetive, online, multiplayer centric with fluid controls and a slight arcadey tinge to the gameplay wouldn't be a bad way to go. 



You played 7 hours straight? if so, that means that the lasting appeal that you experienced might be tiredness. I'm sure that would have a weird lasting appeal everytime a I play a game for that long.

I hope they don't add blood in the game cus I suffer from hemophobia like most Nintendo fans :S

lol. There are subtleties to the game that you won't experience in a regular 7 hour playthrough. You won't discover the intricacies of the maps, power ups, weapon selection and loadouts and what they can do. A power up you never thought of becomes your biggest weapon without realizing it. A weapon you hated at first becomes dangerous in your hands. You probably didn't even get a chance to talk with Spike and upgrade the slots on your armor or reroll your gear or anything. Not to mention having him steal gear for you. I have more fun as a level 20 than I did starting out. Its a shame you won't be able to experience the max level stuff.



Splatoon is essentially Call of Duty which is itself not a bad thing at all. Call of Duty gameplay is a familiar, tried, and tested formula and Splatoon is just an interesting variation and a Japanese perspective on said formula. Big, tough soldiers are replaced by cute little squids and Japan seems to be all for it judging by sales numbers.

You know what they say: variety is the spice of life.

I don't have proof for any of the following, but I have this hunch that maybe there are a lot of Nintendo fans that may suffer hemophobia or something. That would explain the way that some of them have this immediate reaction of repelling anything with gore and Kool-aid spilling action that comes their way.

What immediate reaction are you referring to exactly?
