i bought splatoon day 1, its fun BUT... the same multiplayer stages from the splatfest didn't change, in fact over the weekend the stages stayed the same. On monday they took away salmon run was it just a preview or an ''on weekend'' thing? Seems like only 6 stages. I forget the splatoon format but looking at the original, the original has twice as many competitive stages. im not sure if more will be added but if they do it'll most likely come after Nintendo online starts charging money... at first i thought charging for online was great however, right now i dont think so, seeing that Splatoon will be the only worthwhile online game to play with for who knows how long making it an $80 with whatever retro community thing they'll do... when it comes to gameplay a lot of the new weapon specials seem nerf'd and almost useless, -the long laser beam is uselessly slow and inaccurate its only good use is for destroyer the rainmakers barrier, no aim reticle makes it a detriment to even try to use -ink armor is a badly nerfed bubbler, next to useless -ink rain is not scary enough, next to useless -rollerball gets destroyed way too easily, but useful in splatzone MOST IMPORTANTLY, Gotdamm i miss the gamepad! Splatoon two is WAY harder without a map, At Least put in a minimap so i can see how the enemy is moving in the beginning, and jump retreating is almost impossible now. those are my initial thoughts how bout yall?
