Ploot and DrFinkelstein Discuss The July 6th, 2017 Nintendo Direct about Splatoon 2
I used to get games a day early or at the very least on release day when ordering from my usual place, but today there's nothing in my mailbox. It's gonna be a rainy weekend over here, so I was looking forward to some splatting. Oh well, it's not like I'm lacking great games to play or anything, but still.
My copy should be waiting for me when I get home from work. Unfortunately, I work till 6:00 on Fridays (aren't they supposed to let you go home early on Fridays?), and I'm on the West Coast, so my 6:00 is later than most other people on this board. Still, my wife and kids are out of town till Sunday, so besides a big pile of wood I need to take the chainsaw to tomorrow, I'll be splattin it up!
Went home for lunch, both my Bayonetta Amiibo and copy of Splatoon2 were waiting for me (separate deliveries). Grabbed a quick bite to eat, popped in the cart (update took a little longer than anticipated) and played 1 match online. We won, which put me to level 2. Had to head back to work, but man, I wanted to play more! Silky smooth.
Hey, this game is... like, awesome. I didn't get to play the first one as much as I wanted to (started my current job around the time it came out) but i liked it a lot. Been playing p late into the night this weekend already, its so good. The Splat Dualies + side roll are a damn revelation. And I haven't even touched Salmon Run yet.
i picked up Cave Story+ & MK8D recently but I've kinda played the hell out of those games before and thus haven't played my Switch a whole lot since i beat BotW. So I'm just hyped to have an excuse to boot it up every day / whenever i have some free time again
I'll probably be playing on & off all day today if anyone wants to do some splattin'. DL'd the Switch Online app yesterday so I'll try to figure out how to use it / chat etc. haha. Pretty sure you can just use your phones mic...?
I see there's one at midnight tonight, i think? And if that's the case, I'm guessing Pacific Time, but i legit can't find any concrete details... if that's right, I'll try it out tonight, if anyone's down / it's even happening when i think it is
It was on all day though! They go down in the middle of the night, well here anyway. But someone said they were only during the weekend? I haven't checked what, if there's any time that it's up tomorrow.
turns out I'm extremely stupid lol. I was trying to start a Salmon Run from the Shoal at first AND totally misread the schedule, it *was* all day and there's a lil under 2 hours left. ugh. I'm thoroughly embarrassed
