Nintendo's Titanfall - Splatoon is rip-roaring, refreshing fun [Dealspwn]

Dealspwn: "In many ways it seems to be Nintendo's Titanfall -- a game with interesting, fluid traversal, blending simple mechanisms together in a fresh fashion. Swap mechs for squids, and my reaction to Splatoon is much the same as it was for Titanfall this time last year: a game with a cracking central premise and promising core gameplay just waiting for modes and content and the rest of a framework that'll keep players coming back time and time again." (Splatoon, Wii U)

i see the similarities in the quality.

More about two games with fluid, elegant core systems, both bringing elements of freshness to well-worn genres.

I fully agree with you. There is something to be said about how this game approaches player movement in a new and unique way.

They also both could lack gameplay variety offering few modes and only one player count. They may attract players but odds are people do not stick around for a year+. TF is good game but it suffers this problem and by the looks of it Splatoon will suffer a similar problem

@ LAWSON72 you are exposed Nintendo already indicated they plan on adding a single player campaign and if they do the Pikmen thing you may see them support DLC. With Amibo they can literally add Mario Metroid and other levels to the game.

Ugh, I hate titles like this. There is nothing similar about them and they are not targeting the same audience or being made with the same goals.

Its so belittling to call a game answer to "XXXX" companies' "*****". There is no correlation between these games or their goals. Must everything be forced into this console war garbage?

Forced competition sickens me. I see it enough with people trying to force the Wii U gamepad into competitions with smart devices and tablets.

I think the comparisons come from both being shooting games that are also exciting new IPs. It's all a matter of perspective though.

Call this game Nintendo's Titanfall enough, and PS fans will start saying it's sequel will come to the PS4.

If only it wasn't a rip off.

Shooting ink is a trademark now? I mean, paintball has been around for quite a while. Guess the game you linked is a rip off too. :P

@KonsoruMasuta

I was getting that idea the last couple of times he commented. I'll be sure to just bubble him down from here on out though.

Chrono is a troll. This should be a know fact by now.

Just disagree and continue as usual.

There was nothing new or refreshing about Titanfall's gameplay, I guess maybe if you were born in the late 90's you might think it's new but anyone who has been playing FPS games since the late 80's through early 90's know better.

There are so many other FPS games that had the exact same mechanics long before Titanfall was ever around. Quake is one simple example, Tribes would be another, Unreal Tournament and I really could go on endlessly but I shouldn't have to. There were even free to play games like S4 league that had the same mechanics.

Only young kids must think Titanfall is new and innovative.

This is just another cute game that will fall by the way side. It looks too complicated for the kiddies and too damn cute for us older gamers. Not saying it will be a bad game, just a game that will be looked over for the other more popular games...
Overall i think nintendo is missing a great opportunity by not capitalizing on what's lacking in the industry right now... Rpg's and jrpg's... There was a time when nintendo was the go-to company for that genre... They may not all have been hits but they certainly had all the bases covered as they had one for everybody.
