    I know we've been through this already but the delusional producer of Splatoon once again keeps on defending his backwards mentality.

    Well, really what's the other way of communicating? Writing on the walls "Do as you're supposed to or we're going to lose!" before that someone would've already cum'd you, anyway. lol

    If Nintendo really wants to step up their game with the next home console of theirs then they need to improve a whole lot their primitive online services and its hardware.

    Sorry, I just read this as "Splatoon is such an uncoordinated mess that communication doesn't matter."

    Okay, that last quoted sentence doesn't make any sense. If they had just stuck to "you don't need voice comm because you can literally see what's going on at all times", it would have made...well, not a perfect case, but at least it'd be a reasonable explanation.

    But I really can't but read that last sentence as "we know people want voice chat but we're not providing it". I don't even get what he's hinting at. Should people playing splatoon with friends just call each other over cell phone or something? :rolleyes:

    I read that last sentence as "We are not going to include the voice chat, never. BUT we are curious to see what the players will come up with to communicate among themselves, because we know they are going to buy it anyway."

    Can´t say he´s wrong, I´m probably one that will buy it, voice chat or no, and try to communicate someway.

    It's inevitable to see players spray paint 'naughty' stuff on the walls than actually play the game like it should be. :lol:

    Where have you heard that you can chat in private matches??? Not that this is even relevant to me as I personally don't know a single friend who owns a wii u....

    Could've sworn that some GBATemp users said it was possible but according to Google searches that's not really the case.

    Nintendo fanboys elsewhere keep saying 'use Skype like everyone else on your smartphone' well jeez, I thought the Wii U could handle Skype but it's been beaten by a phone. lol

    I don't understand Nintendo they have some brilliant ideas, but there's an always lingering thought that they also aren't going to implement it well due to they're stupid thoughts.

    To be honest I am the same I don't talk online on Wii U anyway, and cannot wait to play but still you help but wonder what's going on in their heads sometimes.

    There is no need for voice chat. It's crap anyway with kids yelling to their mom, mofo's shouting in foreign languages or crap music in background & etc,...
