Is Splatoon really not going to have any voice chat, or did the internet just overreact to a bad translation?
Splatoon looks like it could be a good teamgame... but no voice chat... w/e i'll just add people who are good until i get a a few good groups for 4man Nintendo үүнийг бүү шантар
I just may rebuy a Wii U for this game
I can see it being possible between friends and clans. But randoms? Not up Ninty's alley.
Bad translations still happening.
If it's between friends, then the whole "no voice chat thing" is only half true, and the incident is therefore not as big a deal as the internet wants it to be.[because any excuse to hate on Nintendo is a good excuse lately, apparently.-_-;;] Chat with randoms is almost always filled with vitriolic children looking to get a rise out of their opponents anyways, in shooters. That creates a toxic atmosphere that's only fun for the ones that think they're "winning the argument". At least with buddies you know it's just goofing off rather than people trying to ruin your day.[unless you've got bad friends...]
Yeah I know what you and I apologize if I added to that in the previous posts. You have to admit though that having no voice chat in a game about competitive teamwork would be a big mistake though. Really hoping there's friend chat in this game because that would be absolutely perfect for me.
Yeah, for a competitive shooter, there should be some form of voice chat. I won't hold back on criticizing the team behind this game if it's not added in some fashion, because it really is a modern-day standard to have chat, even if it's just before a match. Fortunately, this is also something that could hopefully be patched in later, if enough demand is put out for it, so if it's not included at all then you can bet I'll be on the front lines pushing for its inclusion in friend matches, at the very least.
I wont have a problem if the game actually has a decent way of letting friends play with each other in public matches. Mario Kart 8 didnt, making the lobby chat useless outside of private games. To this day the only wii u game i've ever used chat on was MH3U, which had such a system. I dont know why but chat just plain doesnt work on SSB4, its incredibly low quality and i dont know why.
It may be only half true, but it doesn't excuse no voice chat with randoms. Just imagine playing online with no way of telling your teammates who is going to what area to cover more ground. I can already tell too many games are going to end with a loss because everyone wanted to paint the right side of the map. As for annoying kids online, muting teammates could be as easy as tapping on the gamepad.
On average with Randoms ... people hardly ever use useful call outs or care what u say. Mostly all you will hear is slurs, racist and homophobic remarks being thrown out. Or just loud music thru the mics. I would be fine with a friends only in game chat.
Like what Kip said; most randoms aren't going to care if you're trying to direct them. Heck, most of them will entirely ignore you and do their own thing regardless, or yell at you for trying to tell them how to play. I'm not saying I'd be complaining if they did add chat to public matches so long as there was a mute option, but I still feel that friend chat is, and should always be, the bigger priority.
Can't you see the whole map with teammates and paint coverage on the game pad? If you have a good group voice chat won't be as essential to know where to go.
@Monkeyman @Kip As someone who plays many competitive online games i strongly disagree when you claim that randoms aren't willing to work together. Also i don't see why their needs to be priority between random and teamchat.
As someone who plays many competitive games himself, I'm saying that the number who are willing to suddenly follow orders are few and far between. Not non-existent, but not enough to realistically be counted upon. As for why there should be a priority, it's because gaming is always more fun with friends, and friends are the ones that the majority will most want to be able to chat mid-match with.
Its not giving and following orders. its cooperating. @ savin communication is always important to win a team based game.
The lack of voice chat in videogames never bothered me but for games that need a more tactical approach it helps. Its odd they omitted it but I'm still getting the game day one.
Just as I said. But it sad that gamers care more chatting with strangers than playing and enjoying the game.
Well its a objective base shooter of course we need to communicate strangers or not its needed and its sad that nintendo does not want to add it. I was looking forward to this game still am. Just a little bum bout that it would of helped out loads :)
