@DeltaPeng I recognize that argument, but it has nothing to do with voice chat among friends, which is also absent. The game is certainly still fun without VC, but any online game involving teams can benefit from it. Thankfully, I don't think its absence hurts Splatoon as much as it would, say, Halo or TF2.

@Haiassai There's no reason NOT to have voice chat, but I was pleased with how well the game played without it. I do think there's something to this idea of Nintendo's that the game doesn't really need it. The ability to see the whole map at all times, and to warp beside your teammates, plus the fact that the teams are small, helps to mitigate the absence of voice chat.

I occasionally ran into a situation where my ink would just stop appearing on surfaces, even as I kept firing. It would stay that way for a few seconds, and then suddenly appear all at once, everywhere I'd sprayed it. It only happened twice, thankfully, but it could have had a major impact on the game had an enemy shown up while I was waiting on my ink to appear.

Besides that, though, I was impressed at how well the game performed. The gameplay was silky-smooth. This was especially impressive considering that my current setup won't play Smash without lag.

I recently bought 30 Sega Genesis games during a Steam sale for less than 38¢ apiece. And these aren't the bargain bin dwellers of the 90s, either. I got Vectorman 1 and 2, Gunstar Heroes, Shining Force 1 and 2, Phantasy Star 2, 3, and 4, Alien Soldier, Dynamite Heady, Landstalker, all three Streets of Rage games, and more--again, for less than 38¢ each. It's hard to argue in favor of Virtual Console prices when deals like that are available.

It's been said many times, but Super Mario Sunshine HD would be great. The game honestly feels a bit rushed in some ways, and has too many "filler" Shines. But it's brilliant in so many ways, and with an HD remake they could smooth out those rough spots.

I bought three of the Smash Bros. outfits, including Proto Man. I would much rather have had Proto Man as an alternate skin for Mega Man, though. I'd like to see alt costumes for regular characters offered as DLC before long.

I think the price of $0.75 per costume is fine; there's really no sense in complaining about that price. However, there should be a discount if you plan to buy all six, say, $4 for the pack instead of $6.
