Everything changes, Pit.

what are the callie and marie amiibo going to do in this game? like the other ones i assume grant you the outfits you could earn in splatoon 1, and the new ones must be entirely new outfits, but are they going to add something to callie and marie's amiibos or is it just going to let you summon them to dance again? because that would be super weird considering the story this time

I was about to say that if they emulated how pointing the wiimote at the screen controlled aim on the Wii it would have been the best case scenario, but the way that guy resets it it basically accomplishes the same thing. I'll definitely be trying this out

Maybe it's holo Callie until you rescue her in the single player?

So I give this all about equal odds of either going super well or, uh, gettin' us all killed. Messily.

So a couple of prayers from you guys wouldn't hurt, yeah?

Apparently the Callie & Marie amiibo functionality is one of the things under wraps until release.

Speaking of which, I have to admit that I wasn't too sold on the new idols originally... until I heard the Splatfest stage theme. That's where I really "got" their sound, and I'm a fan now. That they appear, from ~spoilz~, to have more than two songs total in their repertoire at launch helps.

I also like that there's some clear "octoling" (i.e. synth-techno) influence in their music, which is a nice touch.

Also I'll admit I was a little at the NA approach to Marina, especially since her shyness seems like it might be plot-relevant, but I actually trust the NoA guys to do her right (since I know a number of those nerds).

Nah, if you watch the splatfest performance, it's clearly light-up in the same way. It's just harder to tell because her outfit is already white


Also, it seems the game will be going live on the eShop at 12AM Eastern on Friday? Excellent, that means I get to play it on Thursday, hopefully, unless the eShop crashes.

I loved throwing sprinklers right behind enemies so they would either get their retreat cut off or be forced to deal with the sprinkler and make themselves easier targets for my team. Throwing them on the underside of the moving platform on the oil rig wasn't that effective though.

I don't know how it'll be with this game but in general, NOE's English script tends to stick closer to the original than NOA's, so if anyone's genuinely upset, go ahead and A/B them once the game's out.

Didn't Nintendo close their European localisation branch at one point? I think NoE just outsources their work nowadays.

I'm carefully optimistic the British English Pearl and Marina will be more... British in their behaviour.

It's the first true shotgun we've ever had. I can't wait.

Also it looks like folks in Europe are starting to get their hands on early copies. Prepare for some Real Spoilers here in the next 24 hours, tops, I suspect.

Attack and defense were both really boring choices that only existed to cancel each other out, and the weird minimum/maximum ink hits thing really made it feel like they were having trouble balancing them anyway. I'm glad that they're gone.

No more strength/def up is the best thing I've heard about a game that has done nothing but make me happy. Hopefully what I noticed in the testfire about the system trying to find more regional players will continue cause gently caress am I sick of being hit by JPN players who have a .5s latency advantage on me.
