@vitalemrecords I understand that. But what I'm saying is I should not be listed as number 1 on my team if I did great the prior 9 matches and absolutely terrible in that one match. Same goes with the opposite. I should not be listed as "worst" on my team when my past 9 games weren't that great but during that one match I dominated and my team would have lost without me.

@Fee I agree with your system. I know they have ways of calculating that stuff so that would be ideal. Combine kill/death ratio, how much turf you inked (to help your team maneuver), and how much of the zone you capture/how far you took the rainmaker/how far you took the tower.

I know there are other ways to contribute to your team. But this is not the best way to show the results. I did reallllly poopitypoop in a game and was listed as number 1 since I was doing so well in matches before. But for that game I really dragged the team down (even though we won). I think Kill/Death ratio is a better way to list people.

@gatorboi352 That would be nice however I see why they don't give you that option. That can really split a community and they really want everyone to remain on the same page.

However, I do think the rotations need to be shorter and include 3 maps. If there were 3 maps every 2 hours with a different ranked mode I think it would encourage people to keep coming back to the game. I work 8-5 and only really have time to play Splatoon between 630-10. That means for the full 3.5 hours I am forced to play only 2 maps and one ranked mode. It sucks.

Having been on the NA winning team both times (one where popularity helped us win and one where wins helped us win) I have to say that I don't mind popularity being a factor. I just think that it should only be 1/4 of the total score instead of 1/3.

I was really against how they are handling DLC before I bought the game and disliked it when people defended them. But now that I've had the game for a few weeks I have to say it is pretty smart of them. My biggest complaint now is only having 2 maps to play on every 4 hours. I think there are enough maps now to include one in that third slot, Nintendo! Or just have all them all there and let the game randomly choose which map to play on each game.

It was awful. And embarrassing. They pretty much dug the grave for the Wii U. I'm really hoping that at next year's e3 not only do they announce NX but they also reveal HUGE games coming at (or near) launch like a true Mario and Metroid. Because they clearly have nothing to show for Wii U anymore.

During Turf Wars if my team isn't doing that well then they will try to fight the opposing team by our camp. However, there is almost always a path of your team's ink to get away from the action and steal all of enemies turf. So while the 4 enemies were teaming up on my 3 not really gaining any more turf I was busy ranking up the points!

Look at the map people! It's very useful!

Sick of the outdated views on voice chat that they have but I know I'll get a lot of hate for expressing my opinion about that like always. I just feel like the people against voice chat have never used it before or never used it properly. Good interview and great game that just needs some online-mechanics polished.

@CapnCuttlefish The reviewers are in the right to review the product on what is there day 1 since they don't have the future content at their fingertips they can't really judge it. This should have been available day 1, as well as more modes and maps. It's great Nintendo is giving us this content for free, but it's because they have to in order to finally have a complete game months later.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Nintendo Outlines Splatoon's Free Post-Launch ...:

I'm with everyone else saying that the game is clearly unfinished. However, they NEED at least one Summer game for the Wii U so they clearly could not have delayed this any longer. One ranked battle mode to start off with? Really Nintendo? This game looks incredible and has SO much potential but Nintendo is shooting themselves in the foot yet again.

Yes, these are free updates. But that's really nothing to be happy about since they should have been included day 1. Turf Wars and Splat Zones are only going to be exciting for so long...

Once again Nintendo trying to stay modern with online gaming but not doing a great job. Most betas/demos for online games usually let you play online a whole weekend (or at least a whole 24 hours). At least they are giving us something, I guess.

As for the ranked battles, I know that rainmaker won't be available until later. But is the only one available at launch splat zones? Or is that tower one also going to be available at launch? Even if it's just those two I feel like it will get boring just playing them over and over.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Nintendo and Universal Studios Announce Theme ...:

@IceClimbers It sells well but do many adults/kids recognize it? That's the big question. I think they are only going to do their super huge franchises that even 30-60 year old adults who aren't into gaming will still notice and smile.

1) Yes it does lend itself perfectly to an attraction. But most people that go to Universal will not have played F-Zero or even know what the hell it is.
2) I was scrolling through the comments quick and didn't catch the joke. Sorry.
3) See above.

Does anybody know what the N64 shader mode is? Does that make the game look like an N64 game? If so that is sweet! I agree the 1.2 million pound goal is kind of lame, but the 1.1 million goal for the N64 shader and DK style rap is incredible!



zeldagaymer93 commented on Video: Catch Up With the Xenoblade Chronicles ...:

So we saw everything we already know about? No release date (not even a closer window)? And no footage from the Western version? ... Nintendo what the hell are you doing? What was the point of this "direct"? You have been showing off this game since January of 2013... Stop showing us the same thing over and over again and just release it already!



zeldagaymer93 commented on Reminder: Xenoblade Chronicles 3D Out Now for ...:

@crzysortagamer Please don't let that turn you away from the game. Like I said, even the first hour of the game was incredible and I am about 5 hours in and I think everything about the story, gameplay, universe is great. While the character models are horrendous and are a little distracting sometimes, I still think it's worth the play through.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Poll: Is Splatoon a Blockbuster That'll Help R...:

First off, I am very excited for this game and it looks amazing! I cannot wait for it come out!

However! I don't think it's going to really sell hardware. There will be a slight increase the week it comes out but that's probably it. And I can see the software sales being huge the week of release but then sharply drop after that. Nintendo has no idea how to market their products nowadays. They think that the whole world watches Nintendo Directs when in reality only the die hard fans do. Get a bigger advertising budget, Nintendo.
