Are you a Kid or a Squid? Splatoon 2!




Splatoon 2 is a game for the Nintendo Switch and sequel to the Wii U game. And I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
And it’s very colorful eh?



This game is a team based third person shooter that doesn’t follow the norms. Splatoon emphasizes the taking over of territory, with the use of ink, instead of just focusing in shooting the enemy team. Think of it as Jet Set Radio meets Unreal Tournament.

 It doesn’t mean that I won’t splat your face off if I see you!

I spent a lot of time on the first Splatoon and I’m glad that the franchise is back. As a Wii U game it wasn’t exposed to that many people thanks to the low sells of the system, but now with Splatoon 2 on the Switch, being a more successful console, the franchise is ready to splat all over the place (I’m going to say “Splat” a lot in this blog).


SPLAT!!

The first Splatoon was a great success, despite been on the Wii U, but also received a few complains. The main complain was that it was short in content, but Nintendo had DLC plan for the game. Nintendo released new maps, weapons, and modes well after the game was released. This kept the game fresh and I was excited every time a new patch came out, and the best part of all of that, the DLC was free!
Splatoon 2 is coming out with more content than it’s predecessor, but it’s still going to follow the same format of free DLC, and they already showed some stuff that we should look forward to.
For example, this UMBRELLA!! 

Also Nintendo promised two years of Splatfest! What’s Splatfest? Well it is an event where the players have to pick a side and win battles for your team in order gain special rewards. For example, we just finished our first Splatfest, (yes! Before the game was release) and we had to pick between team cake or team Ice cream. The event is hosted by the local pop stars, which by the way they’re new this time around, don’t worry the squid sisters have move to the single player element of the game. By the way, the character design in this game is great! If anything I could say team ice cream won the popularity section of the contest just because it was Marina’s side, and we all know she’s best girl.

 That’s a smile that I have to protect!!

Speaking of the single player, Splatoon features a great Story mode that shows you the basics of the game and Splatoon 2 follows this trend. This time you can use different weapons in the maps and actually some of the elements from single player, like the sponges and ink rails, have found their way into the multiplayer in some returning maps from the previous game.

 Something we asked for the previous game.

It seems Splatoon 2 is upgrading everything! Splatoon had a manga in the CoroCoro magazine and now is going to have an anime that will be airing on CoroCoro’s youtube channel. When it comes to the Upgrades in the actual game, are they enough? I’ll say yes! If you take your time and take in all of the changes, the game is fresh enough to still be a blast for veterans of the series, and if you haven’t play the previous Splatoon, right now is a great time to jump into franchise. Nintendo has addressed most of the complains from the previous game, like how now you can play in Splatfest with your friends! Heck we’re even getting voice chat, something that a few people wanted really badly in the last game. Well, the voice chat is going to be part of Nintendo’s mobile app called Nintendo Switch Online.

 Very interesting age we’re living in

The app is not only for communication, you can also check your rank, buy items, invite friends to your game and check how much you have inked. Nintendo is really getting into the mobile thing isn’t it?

 Yeah, because I always wanted to know how much ink would it take to paint the pyramids of Giza.

Splatoon 2 releases on July 21. Are you excited as I am? Is this game a pass? Let us know. Now I return to the deepest darkest corners of my dwelling. Good-bye for now my friends. Also don't forget to check out our book on amazon!

Valerian and the city of 1000 planets(A Salty Review)

By Corey Floyd This summer we have been hit with a lot of movies as usual. But one of them I had so many questions about. This movie was Valerian. It’s based off a graphic novel. The film was written and directed by Luc Besson the mind behind The Fifth Element, Taken series and Transporter series. With a stellar trailer with beautiful visuals, you would think this was a cinematic slam dunk right?   While this film is very heavy with beautiful CGI visuals that tell a narrative without words when the main actors step they drag this film from the depths of space to a crappy SYFY movie. Our main character  Major Valerian is played by Dane DeHaan. Most people should remember him from The Amazing Spider Man 2 as Harry Osborn and Andrew Detmer from the hit film Chronicle. His co star is Cara Delevingne. She was the woman who played the Enchantress in the universally panned but financially successful Suicide Squad. I have a few problems with these two that affect this movie in a big way. Despit…

Not a Single Potato Chip was Eaten! Thoughts on The Netflix Death Note Adaptation.

By Luiggi Cavanna
Let me start with that this is not so much as review but more of comparison between the Netflix original and it’s source material. For a review go check out our local movie critic, Corey Floyd, he wrote an insightful review on this movie. Now let’s get on with this train wreck.
Two will go in just one will come out... LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!
I’m going to say this, if you like the manga/anime, you are going to HATE this movie! This is coming from a guy that wrote a blog about how we should give the live action adaptation a chance and that we shouldn’t hate before it comes out. Well it is out now, so we can hate on it.
L: “Man this movie is ASS!”
Ok! Let's start dissecting this ugly specimen by comparing the characters of the movie with their anime counterparts. What better place to start than with the main protagonist Light!
I’m going to need a drink….. And I don’t drink!!
Oh boy this is going to be something! The Light from the source material was an incredibly smar…
