Screw tilt controls. They are terrible and should never be used. I would try to get the pillows only if they had a blue or purple one.

So Target has announced that they're giving away a free Splatoon squirt gun with a copy of Splatoon. (No pre-order needed)

sadly this is probably the best bonus people in the US will get

Also if you're interested the Splatoon manga from CoroCoro was translated:

ALSO:
I've grown quite accustomed to the gyro controls and take back what I said of them. This game is freakin' awesome

The US version of yesterday's Direct was uploaded to YouTube today, and it announced that the first new content for Splatoon would be coming later today! They will be adding a new weapon, a new stage, and Ranked Battle mode.

 

The new weapon is the N-Zapper, a rapid-firing NES Zapper with grenades as a sub weapon and the Echolocator as a special weapon.

 

The new map is Port Mackerel; it appears to be similar to Walleye Warehouse in that the combat will be very close quarters as there are lots of tight corridors between shipping containers. Looks pretty cool.

 

And finally, enough people reached level 10 over the weekend that Ranked Battle will be opened up as well. For those who don't remember, Ranked Battle will be a "King of the Hill"-style game mode where you'll compete for control over a small area of the map. You can only play this mode if you are level 10 or higher.

 

The new content is being added at 7 PM PST/ 10 PM EST later today, so look forward to that.

Tilt controls are amazing for proper aiming honestly, it takes a little getting used too though.

Also woo did Splatoon live up it its hype, having a good time playing it. What rank are you guys at? I'm at 16 last time I checked.

I'm at rank 15 I believe.

 

What do you guys think of Ranked btw? I love it, I'm not always the best at it but it's really frantic and exciting compared to Turf War.

I'm only rank 11 since I've been busy playing all the single player amiibo stuff and posting memes on miiverse

It's nice how frequently they seem to be updating the game though, I expected a new update every week or 2 but we had a new map added in a few days as well as new weapons. Hopefully they'll keep up the updates so that this game doesn't die early.

I'm level 10, it's taking me a lot longer to level up than some others apparently. Maybe it's just because I'm bad at shooters or something.

I use tilt controls, and I actually like tilt controls, considering that I get a full view of my area and I don't have to rely on the right stick 24/7.

I lost 10 ranked matches in a row.

I've never touched it since.

Ranked battles are a pain, even with maximum levels and three-star gear. Currently level 11 and finally got the Aerospray MG.

 

Not sure if I'm repeating myself here, but I don't hate Splatoon's tilt controls, but I just can't get used to them. I'm just adjusted to the right stick for camera control.

I only hate the Aerospray RG, I don't mind the MG.

I don't know what it is but when I see someone with it I just try my best to kill splat them.

Splatoon is a game where:

  • You spill ink everywhere
  • You can splat people at close range

The Inkbrush cannot:

  • Spill ink everywhere
  • Splat people at close range

But it can:

  • Make you run slightly faster

I heard it's fire rate is as fast as you can hit the trigger, is that true?

You guys hating on the mop, you're just not supposed to use it as a roller, you just rapid fire the trigger button, I get 1000-1200 points nearly every game with it.

It's range is questionable, you have to be closer than you think you have to be.

 

 

But yeah the ink is everywhere with that thing, also it makes for amazing escapes from enemy territory, much better than the krak-on roller imo.

Gentlemen, it's happening. Splat Fest is coming.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDoL4bqJm_A

 

It probably means on top of a chance to get the Super Sea Snails, we also get to try out some new multiplayer maps like the Kelp Dome in the single player campaign. Also, a night theme to all the current stages, which is kinda cool.

 

In my opinion Splatoon should have worked around the internal clock of the system, so the maps would be at day / sunset / night according to each player. It's an aesthetic difference so it would be different for people who are on teams with people from different countries, etc.
