Hi everyone. Last night I popped in Splatoon 1 once again because I wanted to see how much it differs compared to the sequel. Played a couple of battles in turf war and I reaaaaaallyy really enjoyed it again. It reminded me how much I loved Splatoon.
It felt nice to watch the Squid Sisters again announcing the stages :)
Also, the music is still amazing, and I think I like the soundtrack a little bit more than the sequels'. Even that drum solo during the load screen when you boot it up is so good. Gave me a little wave of nostalgia even already. And the stages are so cool, I still love all of them!
When I played some rounds I noticed two things: First, the ink doesn't reflect light. It's just color. I had already been noticing that when I launched Splatoon 2 for the first time but now after seeing it one more time I think the first games' ink looks kind of lame. Second, the movement is a little bit slower.
How about you? Mind giving it another shot?
