Hisashi Nogami Interview: "Splatoon allows for adaptive playstyles"

USgamer:"At a recent Nintendo event, I got the chance to sit down with Hisashi Nogami, producer of Splatoon and talk to him about the upcoming Wii U shooter."

The story is too old to be commented.

Yeah because you have to guess where people are going since you can't talk to them...


Could not help myself

Wouldve been funnier if they werent on the gamepad at all times

Like your going to guess the next move your team mate makes. By the time you've seen where they are they've probably moved to a new place. .

Not everyone is as thick as you. There are other methods if you want to communicate, but many find voice chat a useless feature, myself included

Ironically the only people kicking up a big fuss about this are people that don't own a Wii U and never have any intention of getting the game anyway.

Even if they added voice chat and did everything you wanted, Nintendo haters would only find something else to moan about, "oh the colours are to bright" or something stupid and petty along those lines, so I hope Nintendo doesn't listen to you losers and continues to give you the middle finger lol.

"but many find voice chat a useless feature"

Yah, in games where you need good coordination / quick adjustments or have a large group working together, it's not really a useless feature... Might not be necessary for this game, but it's not useless overall.

It's also fun to be able to talk with friends during a game. You can always have the option to turn it off.

As for the article, Nogami has a long convoluted response for no voice chat. Basically saying people will know what to do and understand what others are thinking / their play styles.

No one is so slow-witted that they can't take one look at the game pad, and MISS where their team is headed or what areas need covering.

If you're going to argue for VC, do it for the fact that it makes matches between friends more enjoyable.
Not for the sake of team coordination, because let's face it, 99% of players in shooters these days, outside of tournament/pro settings, do not use chat for teamwork.
They use it for trash talk and random chat.

Splatoon would be no different, with chat, so arguing for it because of team coordination is a weaker argument than vouching for fun in friend matches.

Choose the smarter reason.
Choose fun over coordination.

Oh looks he's in white knight mode, taking everything people has said about the Wii U joking or not so personal.

Not surprised.

I guess people are just dumb then. Can't follow a simple objective in a shooting game.

Not only that the Gamepad map is real time.

If someone figure out what one person is doing in area that empty with no battle going on then they shouldn't play games.

Even with voice chat in Battlefield, Call of Duty and other shooters teammates are dumb.

Don't be so sore. You made a bad joke and people called you out on it. Better luck next time. ;)

The most negative user on this site has a sense of humor... Oh wait no he doesn't. Stop using your huge ego. It's tricking you into thinking your funny.

You just got railed in this comment section fox. I'd poke you with a stick but I got more respect for the stick at the moment.

I honestly feel like there should at least be an option for voicechat. Injustice had you decide whether you wanted online chat or not at the very beginning, so you can decide whether or not you want it. It doesn't ruin the game, but I feel like it does make the game slightly less appealing. I know not everyone uses voice chat, heck I don't even use it very much but it's still fun to talk to others and there is a higher degree of teamwork wth it.
