I am debating either getting this or buying some games on the steam sale and was wondering if anyone has played it and would like to defend it

$60 can get me a couple of steam games that I have been wanting and a few that are just so cheap why not get them haha


Is it worth getting? fun to play? I cant even get in to the Wii U store right now because servers are busy that might just be me but how are the servers?

Splatoon is a FPS why do i say that? because while it is fun if you don't completely love competitive multiplayer then you should think about that some more. As far as being good, i've heard nothing but good things about the game. The different classes offer different ways to help your team win and stuff. But if you're comparing 1 game to a hand fool of other games (The steam sale) errrrrr i'd go with the sale stuff. But that's just my opinion.

I'm answering fast and i'd add more but i feel like this thread might be kinda personal so one of those "very nice" moderators might close it

The game is awesome and addicting! Its the type of game you can pick up and play for quick match, or just sit for hours and play non stop. Its also very easy to pick up and play for beginners, but also has some strategic depth for those that want a little more out of the game. Its great for casual or competitive play. It is a THIRD person shooter thoough, not fps.

My 4 yr old has been playing it non-stop!

I played about 20 mins and it's a lot of fun!

I bought a Wii U almost solely on the basis that this game looked SO good.
Thus far, I have not been disappointed.
The servers seem usually good, tho not immune to the occasional hiccup.
I got constant disconnects for an hour or two one day, but power cycling my Wii U & router seemed to fix it, so that was probably my end.
I am upset right now that Splatfest is delayed!
They say that a "matchmaking error was causing it to take too long to start a game"
My thoughts are that means whichever of the two factions has more members will have to wait longer for a match. Even before they cancelled it I was wondering how that was gonna work. Obviously no one's gonna pick cats over dogs.
Anyways, yeah, the game is fun, fast, cute, colourful, and most importantly, original. I have been bored of so many games lately, this adds some real variety.
Also most online shooters are thinly veiled propaganda tools designed by the military industrial complex for the purpose of indoctrinating the youth into thinking that joining the military, murdering people, and possibly getting yourself killed is "fun". So I'm glad I can buy a shooter without feeling like I am financially contributing to this.
