    I'm really getting map fatigue. Two maps rotated out every few hours is ridiculous. We should be playing on all the maps, not just a select few.

    New weapon, the Wep Splash-O-Matic (I think it's a Jr?) will release tonight.

    I think it was done, in part, to kind of cover up how few maps there were at launch. But now that we're getting more, I would hope they bump the rotation up to 4, at least 3, every two hours.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they announced that along with some new stuff for Splatoon in the E3 press conference. Your right, they did it for a reason, but now with things speeding up (and many, MANY, people now playing it), they should pump up the rotation.

    Splatoon's success is surprising and awesome. Glad it's getting all the attention it deserves. It's far from a perfect game, but I always have a good time when I play.

    Well, I got to play Tower Control today, and man is that fast and furious! I had one round end in less than a minute thanks to some good defense! Anyone else enjoying it? I'm liking it more than Splat Zones, and more Ranked Battles because of it.

    I know the feeling, lol. Splatoon is the perfect game where you can play for an hour, not play it for a week, then play it for a couple hours and just enjoy the fun. And whatever new stuff they have added since you left!

    There was a Splatfest yesterday? Dammit, I didn't even know. Didn't have much time to play anyway, though, I was at family functions in the mourning and with friends the rest of the day. July 4th was a horrible time to have that, what the hell? I wanted to see the night maps.

    Just so you know, they put it there because they had issues with a Splatfest they held in Japan I think. And thus they delayed it so they could fix the issues before we had one. I had no connectivity issues the whole time I played.

    And yeah, it was fun! Inkopolis was totally rocking, they had the Squid Sisters singing. Each level (there were three to choose from!) had variations of the normal songs with the Squid Sisters doing the vocals. And you got to level up in rank depending on how well you did in the round and whether your team one. It really tests your dedication to rank up.

    I almost forgot myself Tron, I was going to play yesterday regardless, but the amount of time I spent on it ended up being because it was a Splatfest.

    If you have Twitter, follow Nintendo of America, they make a bunch of posts about this and other Nintendo events.
