[Let’s Talk] What are you playing? – August 2017
Posted on August 12, 2017 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, Let's Talk
A new month is here! We just entered August last week, so that means we want to know what you’ve been playing.
Have you started up something entirely new for the month? Are you trying out Hey! Pikmin or Miitopia? Or maybe you’ve been giving some of the new Switch eShop games a look. Whatever the case, let us know in the comments below!
Highlights from last week’s topic: Splatoon 2 impressions
Splatoon made me almost regret buying other games since I really cant turn splatoon off. It is similar to the first, wich was already addictive. But it has enough twists to be considered a true sequel, the pacing of the matches changed almost completely with the new maps and new special weapons. The specials from the first were always game changers and that made people relly so much on them that frequently everyone would charge their special and then head to the objective. The new ones are quite balanced and require way more skill. Also, the salmon run provides that break from the crazyness of ranked. I’m really in love with salmon run, it’s a shame its not always available, but well, the prizes are quite good when its available. The singleplayer is good, but completely overshadowed by the multiplayer to the point i didn’t even finished and only plan to play it when I have no internet connection. There was some other changes that helped the game a lot, like the new guy responsable for reroll and gear slots providing a way to change a single sub ability. Many say the game is too similar but well, every shooter sequel is a bit similar, and I do think the changes made here are worth of being called a sequel. There are only two things i don’t like about it, the fact that there is no new ranked mode, and that we still can’t change weapons while waiting for a new match.
Got it and playing it since launch with the splatoon pro controller.
I gotta say its a really fun experience, but it does feel really familliar at times. As if ive already done everything before. They could have seperated the experience more from the first splatoon if you ask me.
I also miss some social interaction in the game. Playing salmon run with strangers isnt that fun to me, and ive got like one other friend actually playing splatoon at the moment, so thats kind of an issue..
Otherwise, great game, tons of fun!
While it does have problems that I’m hoping will be fixed eventually, I’m having an absolute blast with Splatoon 2 so far. It was one of the reasons why I wanted a Switch. The first game was one of my favorite games on the Wii U.

Well let me tell you guys. I’ve been playing this game since release day, and after all my hours of play I’ve come to one conclusion. I’m the best. I’m just the best guys. That’s all there is to it. That’s ALL there is to it.
