Key Questions: What are you most excited about from the trailer? What are you most hopeful for? Are you buying at launch? When do you think launch will be?

Ploot and DrFinkelstein Discuss The July 6th, 2017 Nintendo Direct about Splatoon 2
I'm a completionist with my absolute favorite games so I had no problem beating every challenge and in all weaponry before seeing the normal final boss. That said, the post-game beyond that is not extensive but it's a great challenge for a Splatoon die-hard. You will earn something that will allow others to know you completed such a feat, but IMO the standard final challenge was more enjoyable. So really, if you enjoy Splatoon single-player a bunch, definitely keep challenging yourself with the other missions and with the other weapons too. However it's not essential IMO to reach that very last task.
I held off on this game far longer than I normally would for a big Nintendo release because despite really liking the original, I only played it a few times. I finally bit while it was on sale on the eShop for $40 around e3, but only started playing it the last few days. And no surprise, itís one heck of a fun game! I seem to do just fine with my starter gear focusing on painting everything with occasional skirmishes with the other side, but then there are matches where thereís bombs and missiles and paint splattering all over the place and I have no idea whatís going on. Still a fun time, though!
Came back to Splatoon 2 for the first time in ages. Was supposed to play some Splatoween Splatfest matches, but ended up playing three and then getting sucked into Salmon Run. Never played Salmonid Smokeyard before, I don't think! Anyway, holy shit this game is good. Why don't I play this everyday?
