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!

A New Def Jam game maybe? Roster Ideas by Corey Floyd

over the past month or so DefJam has been throwing some hints that they might make another fighting game. About two console generations ago (ps2, Xbox, GC) there was a game from EA BIG called Def Jam Vendetta. It was a wrestling style game but with hip-hop artists. DMX would literally kick your ass. Redman & Method Man was the best (and still are) tag team ever. It was a hit !! The follow-up fight for NY was a great sequel with even more artists in fighting form. Then the third one was garbage, hot garbage simmering in garbage juice. It bombed hard. Now it looks like we might get another. Bosslogic even came up with a title. Today I'm gonna come up with who should be in it. Some old, some new, some more gals, and some new dudes.


1. Missy Elliot Missy Elliot has been in the game for a long time. Somehow despite all of her hits, she has never been given the title of queen of hip-hop. In the game, she could be the queen of mean. Give her a footing style that matches her out of thi…

Top 10 masks in comics by Braheim Comic Boss Gibbs

Ok, Edna, I understand why no capes easy to grab, villains can choke a hero out with his own cape, and don’t get me started on the fashion aspect of them they’re so Detective Comics am I right?  But, what about mask they definitely make more sense. With just eye covers your whole secret identity is safe from prying bad guys that want to do bad things. So you can continue taking the kids to soccer practice or living you billionaire playboy lifestyle. I’m looking at you, Bruce, Tony, and T'challa. Now that we’ve established that mask is essential to longevity in the superhero gig here are my top ten masks in comics. These mask strike fear or annoyance in everyone they come across friend and foe. In no particular order.

KIN (movie review) by Corey Floyd

I saw the trailer for KIN a while back. It had my curiosity. Black kid finds a gun that looks like it's from a Decepticon. He tries to protect his family... Hey, it looks better than the robot dog movie that you're already ignoring for obvious reasons. Anyway, I was lucky enough to see a screener of the film the other night and drank a few red bulls so I could bring a review to you.
Eli is a young ambitious kid who is mourning the death of his mom. While salvaging the abandoned buildings of Detroit he finds an Alien Weapon. Naturally, he keeps it secret from his strict blue-collar dad, played by Dennis Quaid. Quaid tries to instill values into his youngest son (Eli) while his eldest son Jimmy returns home from prison. Jimmy can't be apart of the family until he repays his prison debt to the local crime boss Taylor Balick, played by James Franco.
I don't wanna give too much of the plot away... sorry. But... I can say that the movie is worthy of your hard earned dollars. T…
