  • Gamer's Scoop: Splatoon Test Fire First Impressions

    Gamer's Scoop: Splatoon Test Fire First Impressions

    For two hours I was able to get my hands on the upcoming game Splatoon, coming out from Nintendo on May 29. It is a third-person shooter squad based online game that also has a few interesting single player modes, including a campaign. That may be a mouthful, but the new game boils down to quite a simple goal: cover the map with your color of paint. Instead of going for the most kills or trying to capture a certain area, your team has to work together to try and cover the largest percentage of the game’s many maps. Some other neat features that the game includes are mini games that you can play during loading screens, challenges that your Splatoon Amiibo give you to unlock exclusive clothing, in-game shops, a level system, unlockable weapons, and big events coming out every couple of weeks.  All of these serve to keep the game fresh and fun.
