Don't worry my friends. I will be your shield.

Kinda surprised that they don't have this up for preorder. Or is the switch eshop not able to do that?

Looks that way now, but I just don't like Discord. It seems like whenever we use it, both teams wind up in the same room.

Few things I've found out

1: You can cook the hockey pucks to give them a much shorter timer. This also reduces the ink cost to throw it
2: You can dodge with the jetpack by going into squid form and rocket back up by releasing the button. For some reason it never dawned on me to try it
3: Dodge rolling midair with the dualies lets you fast fall to the ground in a instant
4: Dodge rolling requires ink, I never quite noticed it before.

They're not hockey pucks. Curling stones is what they are.

I can't believe Splatoon 2 got cancelled and now the rest of us have to hunt down and kill people with early copies to legally own it.

I'm assuming it releases on midnight for each specific reason. Japanese players would be fuckin pissed to have to wait until midnight US time, no?

Yeah, I'm almost certain it's by region. It's midnight EST because that's when the date rolls over first for the NA region. For everything else, including third-party titles, Nintendo operates in the Pacific time zone, because that's where their office is.

EST is when it first hits the continental US, but not the NA region. Atlantic and Newfoundland time both effect fives of Canadians
