unique concept, good artstyle, no alternative wii u shooters, lolis
this is false
see pic related for an actually cute squid
I don't get it either. Squids look fantastic when drawn in 2D, but as soon as you go 3D they look fucking nasty. Really hoping to get Splatoon 2 on the NX when they update the models and make them look like not shit.
Its a fun, simple, and unique new IP that appeals to all ages on a console with a small library of decent games. Plus it has a pretty cool semi-90's aesthetic and its from fucking Nintendo what did you expect.
it's not popular, the game is dead as shit and didn't sell well at all. and with all support and the servers shutting down for the NX's launch, the game is well and truly finished
its fun for people like me who dont care about mechanics, style, or customization
i just like waking up early on saturdays and imagining that what are presumably thirteen year olds can hear me yelling at the screen through mouthfuls of cereal
By actually betting a fun, competitive game. It's marketed like a shooter but honestly it's somewhere in between a TPS and a fighting game in terms of the dynamics of play, like the fact that spacing and close quarter mind games matter a lot. It's not a perfect game, though. I don't think Nintendo fully appreciates what they made here, either.
And? It's still good. The inklings, the octarians, the store clerks, Inkopolis, the splatfest Inkopolis... It's fucking perfect.
It is, especially ranked, but I've to admit Turf War tends to be pretty fun regardless of how good or bad your team is.
>It's not a perfect game, though. I don't think Nintendo fully appreciates what they made here, either.
Didn't they host a small torunament circuit in japan? And NoA even pushed that angle on some streams.
>tons of inkling loli
>little inkling shota
It was something new, a shooter that had colors and was more complex than mere "kill the enemy". A fresh breeze of air in a genre that got fucking stale by everyone degrading itself to cowadoody to get their sales numbers
And nintendo advertised one it for once.
Also, the game is pretty gud and doesnt milk its player with paid dlc shit, but that doesnt matter much at this day and age
My ex boyfriend tried to make me buy this game
I watched him play it once and thought ok that looks fun
Then he told me it was 60 dollars
it was the lolis
So Nintendrones are admitted pedophiles?
I wonder if I'm contributing to the maymay that jp players are better. The other day I got 1700p and 15 kills in a single game. My username is in katakana.
>Pretty sure most people here are pedos.
Will one of you faggots please make a continuous flow of animated inkling porn? I would do it myself but I'm just learning so my shit sucks.
>mfw pedofags try to justify their mental disorder the same way transfags do
Admit it, you're sick.
My second round of Rainmaker we were getting our shit pushed in by the other team, they were like right next to the base and we hadn't even made it past the center yet. In the last 10 seconds I killed the enemy rainmaker inches away from the cap and then brought it all the way to their base during overtime for the win.
It's a family-friendly third-person shooter (and the Wii U was in desperate need of a shooter) that's a new IP, is fun, has a good set of content, allows for player expression, has Splatfests which encourage people to play online, and frequently receives updates.
Jap players aren't better, they just get favored by lag
>Jap is like 10 feet away running in circles with a roller
>kill him before he even starts heading towards me
>suddenly I spontaneously explode
>"Squashed by Splatroller!"
>pay 90 dollars to our lord trump
>go on 4trump for the free ten minutes
>go on /v/
>talk to guy, seems pretty nice
>ask if we could meet up
>wait an extra 1000 dollars, but he never responds
>turns out he was foreigner
>Police knock down my door
>I pay 800,000 dollars directly to trump
such is life in the age of trump.
>Typing this unironically knowing Nintendo full well catered to them with this game.
>kids game has young looking characters
>t-they're catering to us guys, someone cares
>pedopedopedo hurr durr
Becoming a child/teenager ie becoming younger is a normal adult escapist fantasy you shitposting cunt. Not everything is about over-sexualization of the subject matter.
It's the Halo effect. It's just about the only even close to good game on a certain console, so people have to elevate a mediocre game to godlike status to feel like they weren't gypped with their console choice.
>It's the Halo effect
The fat xbox had a bunch of gems, though. Like Phantom Dust and PDO. Just because your only experience with that brand was shit you saw in K-Mart doesn't mean it only has Halo.
>It's just about the only even close to good game on a certain console
Except both the Xbox and Wii U have several solid titles that justified a purchase anon with a lot of ongoing content. This coming from someone with neither one who only reads up on this shit in case I decide on buying them in the future.
Xbox never came to pass because College and other shit at the time. Wii U might happen depending on possibly Pokken.
When are we
people in the Americas
going to get another sponsored Splatfest?
Autobots vs Decepticons is a classic.
The makers of the manga really seem to be interested in getting the squid boy naked or out of his clothes, for some reason.
Because boys being naked is a comedy classic in multiple cultures, i'm guessing.
Japs have a fairly subtle lag advantage the majority of the time, but it can make all the difference in the world at S and above. No matter how shitty the player is, in a straight firefight they'll kill me instantaneously as their bullets catch up on my end. I'll often duck behind cover, escape, or think I've killed them before I hear everything hit me all at once and explode. Chargers and certain specials are especially heinous.
>Because boys being naked is a comedy classic in multiple cultures, i'm guessing.
In Japan male nudity equals comedy for some reason. I just saw this a few minutes ago.
Its funny because diminishing returns is crazy high in this game and its actually more worth it to a fair amount of variety. With that being said the second one isn't actually as bad as the first.
Also they look dumb. Style should always come first.
4 hour rotations in modes, fucking tower control, amiibo, shitty use of the gamepad by shoving the minimap on there which forces the player to take their eyes off the action, etc.
>Nintendo's first attempt at an online shooter
>Free DLC dumped by the truckload, more free DLC maps than base/starting maps
>stat customization is a nice layer of depth
>above-average map design
>plenty of weapon variety
>features "ultimates" that are more balanced than that of any other multiplayer competitive game on the current market
Nintendo has heard all the complaints about map choice, voice chat and more.
Whether or not they address them, and how they even would, is what will determine if this series can be elevated to godlike status and stand alongside gay-ass eSports scene.
For as good as it is, without proper online features it's still going to be considered a laughing stock if anyone tries to call it "competitive".
Don't like Bayonetta I guess?
I get that maybe you don't like the WiiU but saying things that are blatantly false is a good way to get called a faggot.
It didn't? In Japan it sold almost 1M copies and basically created enough momentum for the Wii U since release that the console isn't as dead anymore and saw increase YOY in sales (barely and last year was already down YOY), meanwhile in America the Wii U is dead in the water.
Okay so, stage and mode rotations. What else amiibos are pretty much a non issue because they only have cosmetics, the minimap on the lower screen isn't an issue either due to the size of the maps a quick glance tells you where to go so you don't miss a beat.
Git fucking gud scrub tower control is the easiest mode.
Not that fag/girl, but $60 for a multiplayer focused shooter is bullshit. Especially when you can get comparable/better games in the same genre on Steam for $5.
Nintendo seriously need to drop their policy of keeping their first party games full price, because even on release Splatoon should never have been more than $40 for what it is.
>and splatoon barely scraped that together in the years since it came out
It hasn't even been a year yet and it's a new IP on a console with a low install base.
Also compared to the exclusives on a competitor's system that's about the norm even for an established series.
>Nintendo seriously need to drop their policy of keeping their first party games full price
That has never been a policy anon.
Also after a certain point the retailers control the price and seeing as Nintendo games generally sell steadily regardless of price they're less inclined to drop the price.
Also there's yet to be a steam game to match it.
>reading this thread
>shitposters STILL getting btfo by Splatoon players
>shitposters STILL getting counterbaited by Splatoon players
truly an embarrassment to /v/ shitposters everywhere
There is no source because Nintendo is running it on their own servers this time. In other words it'll be up a lot longer than the Wii ones which were hosted on Gamespy servers and went down due to their bankruptcy if I remember right.
>shitty use of the gamepad by shoving the minimap on there which forces the player to take their eyes off the action, etc.
I dont know why they still use flat out lies like it wasnt a success.
Even i'm sickened by all the shoehorning Nintendo is doing for the series. The series is here to stay and it will only get bigger and more popular if Nintendo handles it well.
There's nothing wrong with boys enjoying the company of other boys.
So networking, matchmaking, locking you into lobbies where you can't do anything, and an extremely short singleplayer campaign somehow aren't flaws?
Also amiibos give you far more than just cosmetics.
Tower control is easily the shittiest mode that forces everyone onto an extremely small, slow moving space. Rainmaker is superior in every way. But it wouldn't be a problem if you didn't have to wait four hours just to get to play a mode you like.
A quick glance at the minimap at the start does not give you a good indication of your surroundings when you're in the thick of things. How often do you look down at the minimap to notice you're about to get flanked when you're in a firefight?
It's not a matter of hand eye coordination, it's the lack of being able to look in two different directions at the same time, especially in tight situations.
I'm sorry my eyes don't rotate around in my skull independently from one another like yours anon.
If it wasn't for the fact that splatoon is the only wii game I want, I'd be playing it right now. Loli factor stronk.
>admitting you have a legitimate defect
This isn't call of duty where you have to care for you position anon.
You look, see what area need to be inked and get over there to ink it.
Yeah, because it's not possible to get an understanding of where people are on the map by seeing the ink they lay down or when their exact position shows up on the map via echolocator or when they have ink on them.
You can glean quite a bit about where someone's going or what they're doing by looking at the map. If you're in a dogfight and suddenly you notice a giant ass steak of enemy ink coming up behind you on the map, that's a pretty good indicator that you're about to get a roller shoved up your ass and to get away.
Can't we all get along and have equality for everyone?
It's also absolutely vital for rainmaker, and even useful for tower control. Also if someone escapes and is attempting to hide or ambush you, but still has some of your ink on them, giving away their location.
I don't hate Splatoon, in fact I fucking LOVE the game.
But how the fuck is it almost hitting 3 million. It even formed it's own autistic fanbase on Tumblr. I'm so confused. Did they really marketed it THAT fucking much?
are we sure wii u games don't have something shitty like the SSL certificates in DS games that would've expired? as in, something that will cease to work regardless of nintendo keeping up services.
Some devs would KILL for a dedicated following as Splatoon has. The reason for its popularity, I'd have to imagine, stems from specifically the design of yhe characters. The inklings are interesting just by design alone, not to mention
cute, and the "messy" modern artstyle resonates with people. It manages to be both modern and retro at the same time.
Beyond that, the game plays great and the online is solid. Clearly the devs hit SOME cord while making this game.
Naw it's just how Nintendo does things. Nearly ever game they made they just keep selling well after release. It's called being evergreen. Animal Crossing might be their biggest evergreen when even years after New Leaf it's still normally on the top 10 selling game in Japan.
Someone help. Iv'e been having constant connection problems and the game is unplayable. I just got a LAN adapter and the connection problems persist.
When I play everything is normal for a few seconds where the ink paints with no lag, but after 10 seconds I get disconnected.
I can play Smash and MK8 just fine but I've been having this problem with Splatoon.
>trying to play Turf War during evening hours
Thank god ranked exists to keep wifi babbies out
Nintendo just makes experiences that nobody else has thought of doing. Not even baiting, there's a pretty wide roster of Nintendo games with pretty unique gameplay. Metroid Prime series, Pikmin series, Splatoon, Smash, Mario Maker, are all games that have no counterpart, at least on any other console.
And when people try to copy the Nintendo formulas, we get shitty, watered-down Zelda clones and FUCKING Sony All-Stars. There's just nobody else to scratch the itch.
Yeah that makes sense. Heard that it was at or near the best selling console. Still shocked they didn't do a real Animal Crossing game for Wii U. But a few of those guys were making Splatoon so I guess maybe they didn't have enough resources on hand.
Would explain the shitty ass spinoff we got.
>Nintendo unintentionally created a meme with "You're a kid now, you're a squid now"
Also, the characters are an amalgamation of fetishes. Loli/Shota, Squid Girl/Boy, Fangs, Pointy Ears, Spats etc.
Callie, all day every day.
>have HD Animal Crossing assets
>use them on Amiibo Festival instead of an actual AC game
I will never not be mad about it
what use for nipples do squids have?
Oh yeah, I think I got my Wii U after that so I missed it.
Either way there's a lot more to do beyond villagers and such. That said a lot of the text can be imported from New Leaf if they wanted to be lazy.
I agree, the naked squidloli's hips should be much wider.
>everyone over level 20 gets a special letter saying to go to the teleporter
>go to it
>get transported to an island
>see this guy
>walk up to him
>"Well done! Now, I challenge you to a race!"
>you in Squid mode racing Bubbler around the island on an ink track for three laps while he's dropping mines and bubbles while the awesome bos challenge track plays
How would you feel?
>Now try my new challenge!
>Collect all the silver coins from each kettle AND win!
>Then come back and see me!
>female Inklings don't grow any taller when they reach sexual maturity, they simply fill out with adult proportions and develop breasts
>male Inklings develop muscles and become ottermode men with their special mating arm migrating to their crotch as it matures
>Splatoon sequel is made
>Now with the power of a franchise instead of new IP
>Hairstyles available for the customizationfags
>Most maps and weapons are reused and available from day one along with the new ones
>Based youngblood devs listen to complaint about multiplayer and allow you to change equipment in between matches
Just imagine the fucking sales. Some people might have to wait months before being able to see a physical copy.
I just want some skimpier clothes for my inkling
>we almost got a naked link costume into Tri-force heroes
I feel like nintendo could do it, but NOA tends to be really pissy about underages in skimpy clothing.
Even if we got it, it would probably just look like pic related.
Still would've been cool, what would it's power been?
>female Inklings don't grow any taller when they reach sexual maturity, they simply fill out with adult proportions and develop breasts
they do both, Callie and Marie are giants compared to teenage inklings
Ah, well then, scratch that. What about the males, though? The only non-boy male Inkling we ever see is the Cap'n, and he's so old he's the same height as the kids.
>male Inklings are like Asians, they stay small and cute and sexy until the reach a certain age and then it all collapses onto them and they become fugly
how many boxes high are humans in that?
A rare photograph depicting how the Inklings actually came into existence.
player inklings are 5 feet since you can just barely clear their heads with a jump in the plaza. someone did a better comparison with their 3D models laid on top of each other and found that Callie and Marie use the girl model but scaled up by 1.3, so that would put them at 6'6 each.
This means Callie's tentacles are at least ten feet long
The law and people in general care FAR more about loli than shots. That one south park episode is really true. Even on /b/, shotafags can post shots shit and no one cares. Post loli and its a 7 day ban and half the thread flips its shit. Even a lot of sites that ban loli and shots almost never enforce it on shots. Fakku was a good example of this before it became a pay site
Are Callie and Marie actually supposed to be older than the regular Inklings? They're probably just bigger models for better visibility, since they're always far away from the player.
That's why I saved it. I like neat things.
It blew up with 12 year old instagrammers making inkling fan accounts. Bought the game right when it came out and regretted every second of it. It is a boring, casual and repetitive neckbeard magnet.
Gyro control is better, but gets harder to learn the longer you put it off, complete single player to unlock even more weapons in sheldon's shop.
play ranked, its the better of the two modes.
>Enemys all stunned when looking directly at you
>Can't look away for some reason.
I have friend
Mostly the splattershot jr so far. I liked the roller for the painting ability but at any sort of range I feel useless which freaks me out
I used gyro for the single player but swapped to standard controls. Should I swap back to gyro then?
>and was more complex than mere "kill the enemy"
Except plenty of shooters have more than basic modes like TDM and CTF. Are you seriously this retarded or new? The appeal of Splatoon was it was a first party shooter that was reminiscent of 90's style nerf/super soaker/nickelodeon culture.
The TRUE question is WHY THE FUCK IS L NOT USED FOR ANYTHING?! It's a twinstick shooter for christ's sake, map jump or special or even camera reset to it, just WHY WOULD YOU LEAVE A SHOULDER BUTTON UNUSED IN A TWINSTICK SHOOTER, NINTENDOOOO!
It's the best online shooter
If Splatoon is so popular then how come the Wii U is dying?
I hate that perks are tied to specific gear. I don't see why it can't just be some sort of system where you can pick a specific perk for a hat you want.
c'mon is supposed to be the call for reinforcement in other language, in burgeer it just sounds like you are bitching.
I'm surprised they don't use left and right for other emotes. Like a real "danger here" message, and maybe the dance
It's Nintendo. I love the stuff they do but any decent ideas for improving it falls on deaf ears.
>why does a userbase consisting of mainly pedophile manchildren like a game with loli/shota humanoids so much
It still baffles me how they thought the guy's hat was acceptable. Some sort of headband or visor or whatever would have been far more aesthetically pleasing
I mean it's nice that we got them, but yeah the hat was stupid of them. They could already make up a whole new outfit basically, so they could have at least made it cooler or cuter.
Even in the context of /v/ I have no idea what the hell this means.
Oh, I love that we got them. Every time I a female ink wearing the set I smile brightly. But the dude's outfit needs a major overhaul.
Did nobody at Nintendo think for even a moment that his had looks like fucking condom?
That's the most flattering description of it I've seen yet.
>Game fully supports a pool of three maps
>Keeps it on two outside Splatfests
Why is this allowed?
I'm gonna need some directions here m8.
So when's the inevitable Monster Hunter crossover?
There's plenty of Callie and Marie art out there but very little of them having fun with Agent 3. I guess it's not quite /ss/ but it's as close as this game is going to get.
I like the concept of ink territories. It brings depth to the game.
It's colorfoul which is a nice change from the games of that categories that are all grim derp and depressive brown.
Music is good.
But the squid are not sexy. I cannot understand squidfapper.
seems im out of mating dances
It's a true fact that she is the best sister
It's good that Nintendo is finally starting to cater to porn demographics. Especially since they know that one will get them lots of guaranteed sales. I bet Spla2n is already in development for NX.
>new Nintendo IP
>exclusive starved consumers
>original idea (an online Nintendo tps where you paint things and become a squid)
>nothing else of value was coming out during that time
Also meme fuel
Splatoon is a dead IP.
Knowing Nintendo this either will never get a sequel, or in the case of one, it will be a disaster and way worse than the first game.
Better keep making Marios instead of something fresh.
