I know most people use motion controls and I did too in Splat 1 but does that mean you didn't use the right stick at all? I use it when I need to quickly make adjustments. Also any protips for sensitivity?

I use the stick for broader aiming and motion for fine. As your sensitivity, that's a subjective thing so you'll have to figure that out yourself what feels best. I know for me I'll want it more sensitive when playing handheld so I don't have to move the screen as much. I'm happy they gave us separate settings for both TV and handheld.

Digital Foundry did their analysis, and while it can and does run at 1080p with 60 fps, it's working on an adaptive resolution, meaning it'll drop resolution if need be.

Still, it definitely has the Nintendo level shine to it.

Guess they couldn't test multiplayer yet but that gives me hope for 1080p multi since its probably less intensive than the campaign.

Are motion controls really the optimal way to play? I cannot stand motion controls in any way whatsoever.

Yes unless you use a roller. You'll be at a massive disadvantage otherwise.

Don't believe the motion control propaganda, you'll do just fine with the stick alone, with a bonus of not getting carpal tunnel from waggling like an idiot to shoot someone

I just turn slightly for fine adjustments. If you're wagging then you're doing it wrong.

Another thing to remember about not using motion is that this game doesn't have auto aim like other duel stick shooters so it's pretty lovely to aim.

This game is a ton of fun. I feel like I'll be playing a ton more of it when it's actually out and you earn XP and money and stuff, because I'm not totally happy with the weapons you've got here in the beta thing. want that umbrella

Splatoon has ruined all other shooters for me. That's fine though since now I don't need another console.

A shame nothing transfers over from this. A medal or special shirt would have been nice.

I have a feeling it'll be a massive ice cream popularity win with cake taking it overall from wins. My team poo poo the bed most of the times we actually went up against cake.

That's what the Y button is for. Press it when in a comfortable neutral position. I'm not sure how well motion will work if you're laying down straight though.

Ranked up once in Salmon Run and I think I've finally found a shooter PVE mode that I actually enjoy! I love that the rounds don't drag on too long and I love that the weapons are randomized so everyone is forced into a role.

There's also some pretty hilarious and hosed up social commentary in this mode.

So it's basically the amiibo only challenges that were in Splatoon 1.

How do amiibo unlocks work? I scanned the green squid and got the power helmet but it won't give me the rest. Is it one a day or something?
