You can make a case for speeding up the rotation (which they did) but gating things at certain times and having a rotation was a good thing in Splatoon.

Yeah this isn't a case of the system not being able to handle it or any technical issues like that, even the original Splatoon's local two-player mode (which was it's own weird thing) used the TV and the gamepad as separate screens rather than doing split-screen. That's got to be more taxing on the hardware than a split-screen mode would have been, I'm sure. It's absolutely a design thing, too much compromise to playability for it to be usable.

The switch dock really should have 2 HDMI outs so me and a friend could play Splatoon 2 on two side by side 60" plasma TVs without having to spend a fraction of the price of those TVs buying a second system and game like a god drat chump.

But that's a hella rude thing to do.

No it's not. They need to learn to get gud. They will be forged in the fires of being splatted repeatedly. They will learn ways to be splatted they did not know existed, and they will internalize this knowledge rise above their peers. Their rank and skill level will improve faster because of my tough love.

Or they won't and they'll just get owned and not learn from it at all idk

The first testfire used about 150MB an hour. Seems alright to me, and I've only got about 3.5GB a month with rollover, 2GB without. Not something I'd do every day, though.

I'll add to that that I'm limited to about 5.5meg d/l speed and less than one meg up where I am right now and I'm having zero problem connecting and no lag - and that's an American crashing the EU splatfest

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.

They're going to lock playable Octolings behind Octoling amiibo, believe it.

It's exactly what amiibo are good for - desirable cosmetic content for your home and game

One of the scrolls in Splat1 shows DJ Octavio in humanoid form, though. It's kind of unclear what's going on with the non-Octoling Octarians, though IIRC the art book in Japan (of course) insinuates that they're deliberately-severed tentacles done so to create troops, since octopus arms grow back and are somewhat intelligent on their own because celaphopod nervous systems are actually Lovecraftian irl?

Horrifyingly awesome
