I'm surprised the single player plot didn't have any explanation for why Marina is accepted in Inkling society



Emergency rations obviously.






Alternatively, you expect inklings to focus on something and think about things when they could party instead?

You might raise an eyebrow at the consumption of monkey or ape meat, but you probably wouldn't consider it cannibalism. That said, Splatoon has a weird fondness for throwing in seafood (see: calamari rings in single player)

The tails might be just decorations.

The Aerospray is good at painting turf and nothing else. It has lovely range and eats through ink like whoa. It's my go-to "just wanna get a good score in Turf War with minimal effort" weapon. If you're having legit trouble against Aerosprays then use a weapon that out-ranges it, which is... pretty much all of the guns. For instance the N-Zap has almost identical rate of fire, a narrower spread, and a lot more range than the Aerospray. Try that.

I don't know why you would pick ketchup. It's just liquid tomato. Add tomato instead if the dish requires it and if it doesn't, why would you add ketchup.

Whereas mayo makes everything tasty. Can you imagine eating a steak without good dollop of mayo on top of it? Didn't think so. Mayo all the way.

Red on steak makes it just look undercooked, whereas mayo on it doesn't just taste great, it also creates wonderful dark/white contrast.

I'm not saying that you and I don't need improvement (we do) but when two of the other players on your team have aerosprays and are making sure that one specific area on our turf stays inked instead of working towards the objective there's only so much we can do to win the match for our team.

Also there's a lot of new players in C rank who simply don't know the game modes so you're automatically at a disadvantage.

So disconnects affect the other team as much as yours but bad players don't? The only consistent factor in all of your games is you.



Rexroom posted:

Where the hell are the mayo players? All I'm getting is Ketchup teams.

Oh, NOW I'm playing just as i typed this.

My brothers picked Ketchup for us, having to wait two or three minutes on the matchmaking screen until the system decides to throw us against other ketchup team was really annoying. Might be a smart move to pick the less popular choice next time, unless it's something you feel strongly about.

At least Ketchup King is a good title, wish we could keep them and the splatfest tees tho.

I'm happy that Salmon Run exists because despite buying every single multiplayer online battle arena game in existence, I don't actually like pvp much.

Too often the games feel like onesided stomps and reaching higher MMR can be almost a punishment when it suddenly means that you have to start caring about mechanics everyone previously ignored because they were annoying and nobody was good enough to execute them anyway. You win couple in row games and suddenly you have to play against people who can land hook with about 100% accuracy and part of my soul withers and dies. Whereas in Salmon Run only ones suffering will be my teammates.

Started grinding my smurf from level 1. I'm not really a gun user but I've just been using the splattershot jr. so far because why not. Won every single one of my games so far and have double digit splats in most of them. Once I get to level 10 we'll see how C goes, by then I will have switched to a weapon that's a little more comfortable for me.

If Nintendo has any sense, you'll get put into smurf queue soon. I'm going to predict that while climbing the ranked, you will lose some games because your team does something incredibly dumb but you'll still make steady progress towards your main account's rank until you get bored and stop.

Maybe until I unlock ranked I'll take up a charger because I am trash with those and therefore will not be playing the video game in an immoral manner.

Anyone playing Ranked PvP deserves whatever happens to them. Also, harder you crush, more ranks you skip so to minimize your time spent in lower ranks, use a powerful weapon. Altho then people could claim that only way to escape 'the Elo Hell' is to win so hard that you get booted straight up to A. Do what feels good.


One thing I kinda dislike about Salmon Run is how fast it can shovel out bosses. It honestly does get a bit annoying when you have to attempt to throw a bomb while dodging two lasers, a maw, ink rain, ink bomb and a serpent your teammate decided to kite on top of you.

Splatoon anime comic manga animation thingie

quote:

Rather than a straight up anime, CoroCoro calls the series a “comic anime”. That’s because instead of true animation, it’s more along the lines of a manga with voiced dialogue. There are bits of animation sprinkled throughout, however.

I expected very little and somehow was still disappointed.

Why do we still get mistranslations that are completely wrong in 2017?

Might be that that's what the orginal says. It's really annoying tho that it lies to people tho.

I feel like Glowflies is actually the worst event tho. Not because it's unclear but because there's no universally accepted way for it and other than spamming "This way", there's no way to try to get your team to agree about what to do. At least with Mothership people will eventually figure out where the eggs come from and with Gusher, one person who knows how it works can track down Goldie. Nothing is Glowflies really communicates what's the best way to do it. Also, they should add something to announce that you got the glow, it can be kinda hard to spot before the fish turn and gib you.

It's not gusher height that determines the goldie



Might be worth it to try to send simple Gusher/Mothership/Glowflies instructions into Splatnet even if you can't draw well.

Current Salmon Run mood:


Reaching Profreshional is not super hard and it's easy to get carried thro special events so I understand that people might make mistakes even there but I feel like at Profreshional/Overachiever rank people should know better than clump up at the rear end end of map, shooting creeps as they hop out of water while million bosses spawn everywhere else.
I dropped straight from Profreshional into Go-Getter today, weird loving thing was that all the events went super smooth, Goldie with hunted down during Gusher with mechanical precision, Mothership barely got any baskets on the ground, but the moment it was normal here come the salmonds round, everyone apparently had forgotten how to play SR during the 18 hours it wasn't available. Feeling a little bit salty.



Oh well, still having fun while I bounce up and down in ranks in search for my true Elo.

This is the worst Salmon Run set and I can't figure out why

It feels like brush's damage is too low, charger requires too much charging to do good dps and roller flick delay is measured in weeks.

Compared to last one where Splatling destroyed everything, Carbon Roller and bucket destroyed everything in AoE and you had two lasers.

Thinking about picking this up but was wondering: is there a single player game?

The single player campaign is quite short and frankly not as good as Splatoon 1's. If you literally don't have internet, I can't recommend Splatoon 2.

Salmon Run is fun tho, and while I get bit salty about it, it's good enough that the game is worth playing since I hate pvp. It still does require partying with three other randoms who have apparently never played video games before, so if you want completely solo experience, you probably want to buy something else.

There's apparently two more Salmon Run maps based on datamining

Unless they are very different from the current maps, I'm hoping that they have something else in mind for SR updates too. Having different maps is nice certainly but the current two maps don't play that differently.


Also, somehow pubbies at Profreshional still can't sit next to the egg basket during Glowflies, even tho the current map has perfect platform for it. At least on the ship there's no clear marker on where exactly you want to stand. Sub 100 Profreshional is the true Elo hell because you get people who can reach 100 Overachiever but aren't really ready for Profreshional. Kidding but I do feel like the difficulty jump from Overachiever to Profresh is a bit too high.

I like the Japanese personalities laid out there because it sets up a dynamic that's really different from Callie and Marie, and also emphasizes that Marina's a newcomer to the squid world. Also, her body language matches that more.

One thing that annoys me about Marina is that when Grizz co. ad comes, she always says that Pearl is shilling. But it's the loving sponsor. Pearl actually does shill a lot of products but this is their sponsor. Whyyyy. Thank you for listening.
