Splatoon 2

Yahtzee reviews Splatoon 2.

Watch Video

Oh how predictable.
Yahtzee reviewing another shooter.

We all know how biased Yahtzee is with shooters.
Yawn.

(Just kidding, but that was the one thing you missed in your disclaimer at the start.)

Bam! Ruined chicken sandwich. Yeah, I dislike mayo too.

It does sound like the splatfest had some sort of weird programming problem.

I lost it when you got to the part about the ketchup vs. mayo thing. lol!

You would make a dashing dolphin/aquatic mammal furry Yahtzee.

I hope your next game will be an ironic dolphin dating sim.

Furries: the mockery equivalent of Nazis in shooting games - always a ripe target.

I feel like Yahtzee forgot about Codename STEAM.

Then again, most people did but I felt like a steampunk turn based strategy game that's hard as fuck and not animesque(like the game it's ripping off Valkyria Chronicles) would've made an interesting review.

Those bubble messages are getting creepier by the minute.

I'm glad that Yahtzee also believes that Mayo is nasty on chicken sandwiches. Burger King is the worst damn perpetrator of that crime.

Waiting for someone in the comments to chime in saying they were on Team Mayo and never saw any Ketchup Kommandos

Yeah, I lost it when he said "wank themselves cross-eyed".

I'm pretty sure this was just a ketchup thing because so many more players chose it. I was mayo and not once did I ever end up fighting another mayo teams. If there are that many more ketchup players than mayo players and they have to put everyone into matches, it's inevitable that the larger team fights itself.

As for the game overall, it's pretty much just Splatoon but refined and with extra content... and I'm fine with that. It's a great game which is keeping me entertained for hours in just the basic online battle mode. I'm not even slightly bored of that yet and I haven't even touched the other game modes like Salmon Run or even ranked battles.

Oh, I also love the music and style. And I'm one of those weirdos who insists on using a splatling gun because damn it splatting three guys in one volley is ridiculously satisfying even if I don't ink much turf.

If the teams were that skewed, it stands to reason team ketchup should win by default.

The only thing mayo ruins is friendship, it's the eternal war between Duke's and Hellman's and where you are in the country probably decides your allegiance.

Not the chicken sandwich! You MONSTERS!!!!!

That whole thing had me laughing pretty hard.

I think Wendys is. They put it on their burgers too.

If it's total wins, yes, but if it's wins/losses, then not so much. All the ketchup vs. ketchup matches would cancel out.

Since it hasn't updated yet here is the front page ZP picture for this episode

Not a fan of the background dots - made me think it was further compressed or something

I'm afraid half-squid people are not furries...

They're cultists!

Also, completely funny in that Yahtzee won matches in multiplayer in exactly the same manner that he had in the first game.

Lastly, mayo does ruin everything, chicken sandwiches and all. Yuck!

Yeah, I don't like mayo either.

Now I wonder if Yahtzee will review Sonic Mania next week.

marioandsonic:

Now I wonder if Yahtzee will review Sonic Mania next week.

It'll be either that or Agents of Mayhem.

I'm glad Yahtzee called out the fanboys who love to bitch and whine on here or Youtube whenever Yahtzee dares to criticize their beloved Nintendo.

As for this game, I never touched the first one due to having zero interest in multiplayer shooters, plus the setting of this game really did not appeal to me, and even if I do get a Switch at some point in the distant future, I see little reason to ever play this game.

*Looks around* Am I the only one who likes mayo?

Happy 10 years of reviewing Yahtzee! You've been certainly going downhill!

Blazing Hero:

Oh my god yes. I can never eat their chicken sandwiches, it's oozing the shit. #TeamKetchup

I love my tangy vinegary tomato jam.

Yes. You monster

Of course, but it's weird such gross team misdistribution doesn't come into play. Maybe if it was just kills then the in-fight matches wouldn't be so pointless.

erttheking:

I like it too, but usually with something else like garlic or chilli.

I'm kinda surprised he didn't harp on the phone thing even harder. To my recollection you have to download and activate the app in order to play friend lobbies, only for it all to be (crummily) handled through the system itself anyways in what I can only assume is an attempt to get Nintendo higher in the app search rankings to sell more copies of Mario Run and the like.

And they expect people to start shelling out $20 a year for it, ain't that some shit!

The Splatfests always turned out a bit wonky in the first game too when there was a clear imbalance in popularity too.

Ignoring the single player campaign to focus on multiplayer? Typical Yahtzee bias.

If the teams were that skewed, it stands to reason team ketchup should win by default.

Assuming they only scored points on each other. There's a larger likelihood of the tiny fragment of top level player-base in the Ketchup side just not getting matched against mayos, while the top level mayo players would almost always be continuously fighting Ketchups.

That and a tendency for competitive players to pick the underdog sides in these sort of events, to challenge themselves.

erttheking:

Hell no, brother! We got something special here now called 'baconnaisse' which I'm sure you can deduce from the letters it's purpose. ;P

OT: Why remove stuff for the sequel? That's EA's shtick, not something to aspire to!

Oh how predictable. Yahtzee reviewing another game/console with fundamentalists that worship it like a religion.
We all know how biased Yahtzee is against 'those' kinds of people.

Die Ceiling! - The new motto of floorists everywhere.

erttheking:
*Looks around* Am I the only one who likes mayo?

Yep. The only way mayo should ever be used as a condiment is to make remoulade!

Is it really hard to believe that I'm a Furry who hates sonic (and fur suiters)?

I have played as
1 - Khajiits & Argonians in Elder Scrolls
2 - Caitians, Ferasans, & Gorn in Star Trek Online
3 - Dragonborn in Neverwinter
4 - Charr in Guild Wars 2
5 - The Mrrshan Empress in the new Master Of Orion
6 - Sabretooth Cats in Champions Online

I'm also looking forward to playing as
7 - A Lizard in Divinity Original Sins 2
8 - Sorlag in Quake Champions. (Even though I usually preferred Flisk over everyone else)

....

Also I was going to buy Splatoon 2 after getting Skyrim (again?) for the Nintendo Switch I don't have yet. But the Jim Sterling DDoS attack over BotW made me want to only focus on M Rated Games on Nintendo platforms.
....
With a very rare exception to wanting T Rated games like Dark Souls 2 & TES3 Morrowind.

I hate them both.
They tried to frame me for a piece of ceiling falling down in the apartment below me.

I like mayo but prefer to use ketchup with tuna sandwiches.

Awww you missed the 'blood and cum' part when you compete in a mayo team vs. ketchup team battle. The ink changes colour based on your team choice. So it became red vs white or blood vs cum.
