I've gotten really into that tabletop turf battling game too. It's a great puzzler in this shooting game.

The big deal for us is how when you play Turf War in a party, everyone is always on the same team together rather than still randomly assigning teams as in 1 and 2, so now my SO and I can finally play Turf Wars together and make a mess as we should! Sure, we could still play the Ranked modes on a team in 2, but, we never liked those as much as good ol' Turf.

For those still wondering, you can now skip the news cast when you boot up the game.

Another welcome subtle change that I don't think has been mentioned yet: Bombs from teamies no longer make the same warning sound as ones from enemies. This helps make it easier to tell the difference when the bombs are not on the screen. I thought about how they shouldn't sound the same back in S1, so, nice to finally see this change.

Here's a quick video showing just how quick things get since you can skip the news.

This is totally neat and I had not realized it. Thanks for sharing! I'm going to pay attention in future matches. Great to be able to know when you're safe or not.

I dunno what's going on, but I feel like I'm so much worse at this game compared to the first 2 Splatoons. Back in the day, my lifelong Halo experience led me to pretty consistently get kills without much trouble. Now every single kill feels like a huge struggle. These damn kids and their Fortnite. Now they're all better at shooters than me!

I'm starting to feel old. I can't keep up with these kids and their new video games. I woke up on my 26th Birthday with my first ever backache ;-;

I finished story mode yesterday! Pretty fun. Started to get very repetitive, both aesthetically and mechanically, about halfway through, so I skipped all of Worlds 5 and 6 using my Smaug Pile of power eggs. I much preferred the shorter Octo Expansion style levels to the longer ones; it felt like many of the levels weren't very tightly designed around a single mechanic. Lots of just shooting Octarians over and over.

The plot was fun, and the final boss was great. Ending spoilers: I liked Grizz's characterization in the context of this story, but it felt different from how he talks in Salmon Run, and now that he's out of the picture, going back and playing Salmon Run feels pretty weird! People are speculating that Lil Judd runs Grizzco in the post-game, since he gets a little headset with a microphone after you beat Alterna? Strange. If this game is going to have a story mode, I wish it would just tell its genuinely interesting story in a direct way that doesn't require beating every bonus level and waiting years for DLC to get satisfying answers!

But hey, that's a lot of story analysis for a kids' game about talking squids. It's all in good fun.
