    Grinding on ink rails…might aswell be Jet set radio without skates at this point.

    No Callie, no buy.

    I’m glad for the single player. I want this franchise to expand further and further.

  • Funtime Happysnacks

    I wish I could be as enthusiastic about Splatoon and Arms as Nintendo obviously is. But Arms just makes me want a new Punch-Out instead and this looks identical to the original game which I’ve already played plenty of.

    According to the Squid Sisters Stories website, the Octolings are involved with Callie’s disappearance.

    In other words, you get to save Callie.

    Looks awesome. I like how you can apparently use more weapons than just the splattershot during this game’s single-player campaign.

    I also like how Nintendo decided on what direction to go with the story based on the results of the last Splatfest. Very meta.

    Good news. I’m tired of good character designs being wasted on online-only shooters.

    Naganuma wants to compose for this game.
    Also Sega wants to revive old franchises.
    And Splatoon is an urban style game with rail grinding and parkouring(?)
    I know, fat chance, but I hope the stars align if you know what I mean.

    No you dont bro, she’s fucking evil now man, she wants to destroy the surface and get revenge on the haters :P
    (It looks like she is brainwashed or something of that ilk, which would be pretty lame, I hope its more complex than that)
