    Surprised there isn't a thread on this game yet.

    Be sure to share all kinds of things, like your Nintendo Network name or your gear and whatever.

    Hopefully if custom games are ever a thing that could be something we could organise too.

    It's nice to see Nintendo trying something new and this game shows that you can make a child friendly shooter with colour. Also the final boss in story mode has a great build up and it pays off as a fun and challenge boss.

    This thread has to be at least level 4 freshness.
    It ain't fresh, man.

    Seriously, if people in Splatoon are so concerned about freshness, shouldn't they buy fridges?

    Sp-sp-sp-splatoon!

    Love the game. Absolutely one of my favorite Nintendo IPs to date.

    Have this little drawing of an Inkling I did a while back. Was a bit more of a practice drawing but ya get the idea.

    No Items, Splat Roller Only, Final Destination :p

    Seriously though, bought this first day (very rare for me to do, last time I got a game on release day was Half-Life 2 Episode One in 2006) it came out after playing at all Global Testfire events. Pretty cool stuff. Need to play it more as I've been distracted with a few other games.

    About those Splatfests. My team has pretty much lost every single one so far. Poor Marie.

    Well that's an odd one! I might have to decide based on what the sisters say

    Tunnel vision can be satisfying if you make your goal in the end...

    Does anyone here play many Ranked Battles?

    I'm not a competitive person, so that said, I mainly stick with the less serious regular battle mode. I see ranked for those who are competitive.

    I did think you might say that. Still, I find that the level of play in lower ranks is actually, at times, more friendly to casual players of the game than Turf Wars (if only because the latter are always open to Level 50 sniping deities wreaking havoc on you, among other such players...).

    Interesting, as I'm guessing you don't stay low ranked for long. I've always found myself decent at Turf Wars personally. Though, campers are silly. Run around and take some splats like a real squid kid. :p

    Who am I kidding, I'll inkstrike them if they don't move. XD

    Well, once you're winning half and losing half, you'll reach your plateau; if you're good enough to reach a pretty high rank (B+ and A- are where it begins to get frantic), that could be a shame if you want to have a more relaxed time, but below that, it could be to your liking. Of course, it's great if you just enjoy Turf Wars, but there are three other whole game modes in Ranked. I've typically found Tower Control my favourite, if only because it works so wonderfully with my favourite weapon, the Tri-Slosher.
