Salmon Run: A Few Tips #SalmonRun #Splatoon2

2017-08-26 19:49

1. Avoid going to near shore, best even to lure some monsters off the narrow beach areas.
2. Little Fry can hit hard
3. When that flashy Zombie Char starts charging, look for gas lighting, or being lit up. If your lit up or (the other guys at night) a lazer is pointed at you, your the bait, let the others attack while you dodge if you can. In fact even dying till they can respawn you helps, in this case. They always target no more than 2 (and that’s late on).
4. Your lifesaver there, the little donut, it moves, leave the dangerous area to the guys alive.

NIntendo's Mistake: Pro Controllers #WiiU #NintendoSwitch #ProController

2017-08-12 13:03

It occurs to me, handling the Switch Pro Controller, that this hurts may hand and wrist less (as a larger than average man, almost Morphan like).
The lower stick on the right and tight zr and zl buttons are a bit rough (but a bit better done than the XBox controller).
The great mistake Nintendo did with the Wii U and Nintendo Switch, is they didn’t bundle it with the Pro Controller. Instead they added the luxury instead.

They could have knocked off 99 bucks, and sold it with the Pro Controller (Switch) and sold the mobility option (Joy Pads) for 100 bucks or more. What one could call the gimmick option. Which is what they called the Wii U control pad with the Screen, something I would have got for first and second player if possible. I liked it because it worked perfect with my hands.

Could have gone with “Game Included” instead of “Controller Included” too. Since some of us can be fickle about our controller choices.

Salmon Run: Pure Genious

2017-08-12 12:49

It’s hard to believe it isn’t it’s own game, it would be easier to find then the seemingly back drop like environment it’s located in.
Yes Splatoon 2 is great fun, although I rather miss Mahi Mahi and the Museum, maybe they unlock with time. Some old stages didn’t need changing either.
What is absolutely the selling point for me, was Salmon Run.
It took a long time to find it, and oddly enough it looked like it only existed in the local play room. But when I found it, behind the Marie port hole (Single Player Mode Access Point). When I found it, it was fun as hell and it takes a little will to even play the best Team vs Team, Turf War.
Battles with crazy Salmon, some with a pun weapon, a Fry(ing) Pan. Oh don’t discount the little guys if your too close to the water.

Hints, try and make sure to help your fellow player when knocked out, try to avoid being near the water alone or at all, keep watch, and with 3 eggs down, one can guard while 3 collect. There is no shame in guarding the collectors and eggs.
It’s all about killing the small Fry to bigger Chum and the Bosses who carry the Golden Eggs that fill your quota. Even some of my worst team ups have managed a little over quota, although a lot of times, some of the best got knocked out in high tide.
Beware the fast Mirror Ball like Char, forgot his name. But that is a night time rapid movement mode it hits some times.

It is awesome. It was worth the Switch, and this is my policy. Reason why I don’t have a PS4 or a Xbox. The 1st Party offerings, not worth it. Nintendo always has a good 1st Party offering. A few.

A Slight Correction: Salmon Run #nintendoswitch #splatoon2 #salmonrun

2017-08-03 06:49

Okay, for one, there is no advanced copies and crap coming here, in some ways it may be a good thing.
Never know what can happen.
Another, no Instruction Booklets, hell even the Switch has no instruction booklet.
So I was surprised today, walking up to where I saw nothing before on the second day of this news broadcast about Grazzo Industries.
Seems Nintendo was so big on telling us what to expect they didn’t tell us it didn’t unlock on Day 1. So all is better, just wish they’d not omit things that can kick them in the shins, I am just glad I am not so much the chump. Although my hands do hurt, since I do love this game, and hate the damn controllers. The right half of the controller more than the left.
No, that wasn’t a political joke.

Nintendo Lied: Salmon Run #NintendoSwitch #Splatoon2 #Nintendo #QoL

2017-08-02 16:03

It’s hard to say I was taken, I was made a fool of, and usually my instincts are right. Including my instincts about the lousy left Joypad and overly small controls. It physically harmed my left thumb and shoulder. It is not a QoL product like the Wii U or 3ds could be considered. Or most Nintendo Systems on the controller end.
I was right, and I was adamant about not getting one, like the N64, and the N64 I didn’t have, I had a Play Station. I got a Game Cube cheep and late, and wish I didn’t. But I was mad at Nintendo for surrendering the SNES too soon.

Now, however, I am fuming mad at Nintendo. Who made Salmon Run look like an awesome multiplayer function that would test your reason for getting their internet service next year, in other words they never once said it was a purely local system. Not even a friend list thing. Oddly enough the Friend List is the easiest and most awesome system, it really does connect you with your other app and System buddies.

Salmon Run was a mislead, if not an out and out lie. It goes unplayed now, because no one near here has the device/game. My friends from Paris to Japan can’t join in, in fact Japan and the West are completely cut out of all Splatoon events.

I paid 399.99 CDN, and 79.99 CDN (game) to play Salmon run above all. Even knowing the mistake that is their controller design (Joypad and Pro). Didn’t know it would harm me physically. But given my gaming history, I could always count on Nintendo.
Well more than any of the other outfits out there.

You failed me, and I take this personally. It wasn’t just a Business fuck up, you caused a personal hurt Nintendo. Bailing on the SNES too soon was just a Business mistake.

Fuck you Nintendo.
