Splatoon may be to shooters what Mario Kart is to racers: focused on fun, not competition.
Nintendo and online play are like oil and water. -_-
Obviously you haven't played Mario Kart 8.
Mario Kart has it's issues. That being said, I will be skipping Splatoon, I'm not rewarding Nintendo for this ish anymore.
You do know that game options like that could be an unlockable? If you notice certain things don't open up till you get ranked. It seems nintendo is going to let this one grow. It's a new ip and I'm sure some of the single player stuff will make its way over.
the title should say *as of yet Who knows what sorts of changes or DLC will come along for this game.
Good point, though for now: http://i.imgur.com/wLCSFLD.... (Nintendo's the women missing her chance to catch the ball).
lol, nice pic.
This is so Nintendo like!
So no party chat, no in game chat and now way to play custom games together? Why would anyone want to play this game online? If it has bots, it will be nice for kids at least.
Dont know why youre getting downvoted. IMO I dont think it will have longevity, and who knows if it lives up to the hype.
Because Nintendo can do no wrong in a lot of peoples eyes. This should be a choice. I don't play online unless I have somebody to play with, why would I play this at all if I can't even talk to that person? This is a really dumb idea. Only a fanboy would defend this.
I love Nintendo but this game is getting more disappointing the more I hear about it. Besides amiibos, Nintendo has been in a rut with their games so far in 2015 for the Wii U.
I do think its important to highlight want WONT be included in Splatoon as for many these features are an important factor. However, I also would like to highlight what WILL be included in said game, because for me personally, thus games positives FAR outweigh its negatives.
Well said, these Nintendo haters are so quick to jump on the Negative and ignore all the positive. Where do these ignorant brainless people come from?
Calling out stupid decisions doesn't make us Nintendo haters.. Is that why valid criticism is being met so harshly round here? You people are that over sensitive that you think it must be from Nintendo haters? You can call people ignorant and brainless but you're the one who refuses to acknowledge that they are making silly decisions regarding this game and feedback is important. Being against feedback because you're afraid of some people not liking your console is childish and just as bad as fanboys who attack other systems.
The only people that are ignorant are people who thinks it's OK for a team based game to NOT have voice chat in 2015, and for a dumb reason at that.
"Splatoon may be to shooters what Mario Kart is to racers" Then it should have featured Nintendo characters instead of squid boy and squid girl.
They are Nintendo characters....just new ones, which was the whole point of making a new ip !!
The moment you complain about Nintendo not using known characters for new ip's, you immediately lose all right to complain about Nintendo sticking to said character's spinoffs as their main moneymaking games. You also show that you have not acknowledged the new ip's and characters they HAVE come up with.
This is as basic as online game gets... 4v4 no team chat, no custom matches... This is why Nintendo will be forever stuck in the past...
Nintendo has been the king of DLC and updating lately, so who knows what they will do with this game. All I care about is if the game is FUN without bugs on day 1. Go dissect some of those boring ass games you Nintendo haters love so much....lol.
That's sounds like you'd be willing to pay for dlc to get voice chat? Voice chat sounds like it should be a patch, not dlc
Updating is what I mean by patches. Nintendo wouldn't charge for that. A map pack is what I mean by DLC.
They already plan to according to Nogami. Go on Nintendo Everything. The article is there.
Wait someone help me, i read the article and all it said was you can't change aiming sensitivety while in a match. Where does it say No custom match type?
click bait. The aim sensitivity must be adjust before matches though.
Regardless of the good and bad facts I'm remaining cautious with this game. Not in any negative or positive way. I think more people should be with games in general also.
