Well, I tried playing with split joycon and while it was fine I felt far more comfortable playing in portable mode in the end. One more testfire tomorrow morning then it's back to the long wait, but I'm excited for some portable Splatoon this summer.

This was fun, though I'm not entirely sure how to keep good situational awareness yet. I've never really played online shooters.

Also I'm dumb but how do you use your supers

ZR fires your main weapon, R fires your secondary, R3 (press the stick) activates the super.

So let's discuss the most important part of the Direct:



Marina > Pearl

Marina is so much better that it feels rude to even mention. Sorry to hurt your feelings, Pearl!

So TT is full on for Marina? No dissent? Cool.

Interesting to see an Octoling doing so well in Inkopolis.

TBH when I first saw Pearl on my phone I didn't realize where her mouth was and thought her nose was her mouth and was like "ok that's different"

lol today was a day that happened

The Squid Sisters and Off the Hook all have distinct "squid" eyes in contrast to the standard Inkling. Although Pearl's is more star-shaped than the others.

The Splatfest demo thing is available for download, and unlike the ARMS, and I believe Splatoon 1 tests, you can currently boot it, make an Inkling, play the tutorial stage, watch an episode of Off the Hook, and sign up for your Splatfest team. (Which is obviously cake.)

Also, Spyke might still be around, if you look...

I'm gonna be honest with you guys: I don't like Splatfests. It makes the matchmaking even worse, adds a reward that you can't acquire with a consolation prize, replaces the usual list of songs with just a single song, and takes your shirt away. And they always happened on weekends that I just wanted to play regular old Splatoon, not try to defend the honor of hot dogs or whatever.

It did lead to a game where I was on a team of 3 that beat a team of 4, so that was nice.

At least with Splatfests this goaround you can team up with friends.

There's user posts visible in the square, but I can't figure out how to make one of my own.

Edit: I mean, I found the post box, but it only seems to give me the options to post to Facebook and Twitter, which is not what I want to do.

Edit edit: the in-game FAQ is useless because it only tells you how to post to Twitter or Facebook. I've somehow got multiple copies of my un-submitted post in my Switch's album but the only thing I can get it to say is "post canceled" because I don't want to post to other social media.

Just think, If I'd procrastinated another couple months, you might have gotten them in your Festivus gift.

And now you've raised expectations for your next victim.

I'm conflicted cause I really enjoy cake, but I also enjoy ice cream. Why can't I have some delicious ice cream cake as a third option?
