Armada’s E3 picks: Splatoon (TBA)

 

 

Out of all the shooters I’ve ever played there only handful of them I’ll play again; Call of Duty, Team Fortress 2, GoldenEye, etc. However shooters never really change the time tested ‘shoot a guy in the face – win the game’ mechanic. Leave it to Nintendo to reinvent the barrel of that gun. Splatoon is gang warfare and paintball all in one – with squids. Players sign on as a squid human hybrid who sprays down an area with their squad’s colors, unfortunately your enemies are doing the same thing. Whoever covers the area with the most of their color wins. Now that’s not to say you can’t attack your rivals, because you can, or use killstreak (or is that paintstreak now) weapons to dominate the level for a few seconds, because you can. Splatoon will be awesome because it’s a shooter for hardcore and causal alike; CoD heads will like it for take out enemy players an and getting special weapons causal game will just stick to painting everything they see and if they get a kill that’s just bonus – it’s win win people.
