Splatoon did to shooters what Mario Kart did to racing games and Smash Bros. for fighting games.

Only Nintendo can do this.


And what did MK do to racers and SSB do to fighting games?

This game better have a big single player or I think its gonna get slammed in reviews for not having enough content and Nintendo probably isn't gonna drop the price, so if it gets that stigma of not having enough content and it stays $60 its gonna cut its legs.


It definitely will have a big single player if the trailers are to go by anything. And the single player focuses on platforming MUCH MUCH MUCH more than Multiplayer.

It has enough content as is, we'll be getting the entire package with updates throughout the summer. Not 100% saying its right but obviously they couldn't put the full thing in day 1. If it were paid dlc, then there would be a problem.

Reviewers don't care what comes later though, what is available day 1 is what is gonna be considered and is what people are gonna hear.

Ok but reviewers dont affect sales as much as you think, i can name many examples where games got high scores yet didn't sell well and the opposite way too.



I think you've had too many tbones. But you should totally make a bet, because bets without crazy odds are lame.

For an unproven IP I think reviews play a much bigger factor than reviews for say AC or GTA or w/e. 



No lol, it'll be very lucky to reach 2 million.

Oh-kee-doh-kee! I've had fun with plenty of other shooters, and I'm pretty sure there are a few dozen million others who also have.
