Thank you for your service, Rexroom. Except Chargers are good.

So Duelies have the sideroll, Rollers have the vertical fling, and Chargers have the saved charge. Did shooters get anything? Sloshers? Splatlings?

im excited af for the saved charge on the charger. Lot of opportunity for quickscoping

It's a shame scopes don't get it, but I guess it's fair.

There were a lot of really good and quick eLiters towards the end, but I found that they tended to be farsighted, and if you could get them inside your own range you could snap em off pretty easily.


Anyway, I'm excited with how much Splatoon 2 is experimenting with weapon types. Duelies are a neat. Shooters and Blasters are two actual separate weapon types now. Brellas are now an entire weapon type devoted to the Kraken's old niche of blockade busting. It's all so neat and interesting.

Hero mode is the single-player "rescue Callie" campaign

Is it weird that I'm most excited for this (and Salmon Run)?

I mean, I'm going to play a ton of Turf War like usual, but I'm really really interested in unraveling the mystery of Splatoon 2's HERO MODE.

No.

Also there's a million videos of the first part of the single player mode out, and I'm trying to avoid them all. I need it to be ten days from now already.

A side-by-side comparison video of the gyro controls in both Splatoons. Is there a delay in Splatoon 2 as some claim? Can't quite see it myself.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fARJ2e_Y6lY

Here's a test someone from Squidboards did.

https://squidboards.com/threads/acc...20/#post-226417

quote:

Summary of some key things are:
Sensitivity of +5 in Splatoon 2 is equal to -0.5 in Splatoon 1
Gyro drift correction is more aggressive for Joy Cons and Wii U than for the Pro controller. (This means Joy Cons and Wii U are worse at picking up very slow movements than Switch Pro.)
Splatoon 2 controls do not drift as much/long as Splatoon 1
This is hard to explain so bear with me. Video will help eventually.
When you rotate the controller very slowly, the game doesn't pick up this rotation and instead calibrates itself to think that this rotation is actually the controller's rest state. When you stop rotating the controller very slowly, the game compensates to think that you suddenly are rotating, causing a rotation in the opposite direction in the game. The duration and amount of this opposite rotation after you stop rotating the controller is shorter and smaller than in Splatoon 1.
Sorry, I've had a busy few days after the test fire and was slow in getting my results posted. I will revisit with more details between Pro and Joy Con when Splatoon 2 is released. Hopefully I will be back before then with a better summary video of these initial results as well.

So how was everyone Splatfest? Couldn't make it because of work. Shame too since this is the first Splatfest I missed but at least my Ice Cream Team was able to win without me.

I think the biggest problem with playable octolings is that we might end up seeing mostly them and it won't feel like Splatoon any more. Might just be a fad, though.

I think you underestimate just how much people love inklings. It might be like Link in MK8 for a few days, but I bet most would choose Inklings in the end.

They're saying that not much has changed and that it's just more Splatoon, which seems to be a fairly valid point to make?

No, calling a game that changes as much as Splatoon 2 does a port is stupid.

Yeah, you got me there. I really don't want to get into a "what is/isn't a port" argument anyway. I wanna get into an argument about how Marina is still Best Girl despite Pearl being Best Fanart Girl.

The next Judd is actually going to be the villain of Splatoon 3, whose plan is to bulldoze Inkopolis Plaza to build a freeway.
