Turf War might be pretty weird with two people. Actually, I didn't even mind that Balloon thing. But I've never played it against someone with an equivalent skill level.

I NEED BOTS IN THIS GAME.

BOTS!!!

@TriforceBun

I don't see them encouraging offline play, but at the same time, I don't think it would be a feature that would ruin the online of bots existed. I'm always up for more options.

@DrFinkelstein
I can see how that would be an issue, but the skill disparity was a bigger issue for me.

Yeah, I do think that we'd find out about any splitscreen stuff in the upcoming Direct. And the chat app beta.

It's weird that no journalists have asked Nintendo about the inclusion of any splitscreen modes. Maybe Nintendo put that on the "do not ask" list? Or maybe they just didn't?

But I believe that the Treehouse Salmon Run segment confirmed no splitscreen in Salmon Run.

@TriforceBun
Bots would actually be a really good way for squads to practice their tactics. And they already developed some Octoling AI for the single-player mode. The more modes, the merrier!

Splatoon 2 Nintendo Direct in just 51 minutes!

Fuck, no splitscreen!

The other stuff looked alright, though, I guess...
Posted: 07/06/17, 18:03:39
@Anand Yeah, would have been nice. Maybe they're saving that for the first big update.
Posted: 07/06/17, 18:38:40
Pretty good new info, although nothing too surprising IMO. Still feels like a somewhat safe sequel, but I'm still ready to get into it.

@Anand
Yeah, and where mah BOTS!?
Posted: 07/06/17, 19:40:18
The biggest news is that they allow a FILTHY OCTOLING to perform in the town center.
Posted: 07/06/17, 21:16:49
I watched the Direct and have no idea what's going on, lol. So confused... Oh well. I'll just enjoy my perma-D-rank and try to celebrate the victories if they ever happen! (Is there an E or F rank? I imagine whatever the lowest one is will be my area.)

@ploot
There goes the neighborhood!

I like the two new idols, though.


But there's no chance of there ever being a splatfest song as great as this without Callie and Marie.

Best song performed by humanoid cephalopods ever.

After watching the Direct I'm happy that they've put more into this than expected.

Do you all remember how some in the WiiU community complained that Miiverse didn't have its own mobile app? I feel like this mobile app, if more games are added to it, will be just that.
Posted: 07/07/17, 17:31:30
Miiverse > Mobile apps. Having to use a second piece of hardware just to use basic functions like that pisses me off. And not just because I'm a luddite that refuses buy a smartphone.

@r_hjort

I'm in agreement with you. I enjoyed Miiverse and with it being viewable through a web browser made it unnecessary for an app to be created.
The features that they are incorporating into this app for Splatoon 2 just remind me of some of its features.

That Direct was awesome cuz Splatoon 2 looks inkcredible.
Posted: 07/07/17, 22:36:25
@Abdooooo
Sure. I just can't stop myself whining about Nintendo's mobile app obsession whenever I get a chance.

Paul and I discuss the latest Splatoon 2 Nintendo Direct! Check it out!

Great video about the single player experience. Fully fleshed out.

@DrFinkelstein
I don't even need to watch this to know that it WILL be awesome/even better, but still good to hear regardless.

This game isn't next week is it??

@carlosrox

Splatfest Demo on Saturday. Then the game releases July 21st. Only six days later.
Posted: 07/11/17, 20:27:38
I was finally able to order a Switch from Amazon today and it should be arriving by Friday, just in time for the Splatfest on Saturday! Now all I need is a Pro Controller...

By the way, do we know how many stages will be available on Saturday?
