Everyone keeps forgetting you could play with friends on Splatoon day one, you just couldn't do private lobbies and ranked teams and stuff. Me and Muss had an excellent few weeks with two TVs and two Wii Us in my living room.

I really really really love this game, I played the 7pm Friday slot, 11am and 7pm Saturday and Sunday noon. The splat dualies are great but I found the special inkjet hard to control at first. The splattershot's special though is just amazing, it's so much fun being able to fire it at some poor sods on the other side of the map and see the "splatted x,y & z" appear at the bottom of the screen.
My biggest problem was the newly moved jump button, I got splatted on several occasions because I went to jump out of the way but instead opened the map. I got used to it sure, but it was still annoying.

Nah folk were well into it before that update but some wouldn't shut up about the "lack of content" yet years later the same people don't bat an eyelid at some online only shooters.

I mentioned on the skype chat that I'm not a fan of the inkjet special, found it really tough to get kills with it plus it has the draw back of leaving you a sitting duck if someone flanks you or decides to camp at your return point after it's over. Love the dualies though just need to see a version without the inkjet.

Due to work, Internet issues and forgetting the clocks went forward ( Embarrassed ), I ended up missing the entirety of this. Gutted as I've not touched Splatters at all and I was looking to get a handle on how it played during the Testfire. Was there more than one Testfire with the first Splatters?

They did do another one but it was 3 months after the game had already been released.

I thought something like that had happened but was reluctant to post about it because it sounded bonkers. Then again, I suppose it was like a demo for the online side of things. Thumbs Up!

Aye, I think it was to entice the folk who thought it didn't have enough content back since it had several updates in that time frame.

That said, the initial one was much closer to the game's release last time so you might be in luck Jay.

Yea I got camped a lot but that's just the risk that you run with it, when I wasn't on dualie duty I tended to look after my teammates launch point but it usually proved to be a waste of time.

While the inkjet definitely had issues, the couple of times I got into a double-jet duel in the air, or managed to take out an airborne player who was coming after me, were among my top moments of the testfire.

It does have me excited as to what the other weapons specials will be & if any will return or not.

Maybe but I never seemed to see you guys talk about playing games in-till after the update etc, you may have but the echo chamber I was in seemed to not suggest that.

Absolutely loved the new special moves, each felt like real game changers when used at the right time, I'm just itching for more already.
