Splatoon – Is Locked Content Upon Release Good?

Splatoon is Nintendo’s unique take on the shooter genre (a game which we gave an 8.5 in our review). Those of you who got hold of the game from launch may remember that Splatoon was a bit lacking in content for the online multiplayer. The game launched only with one online mode and two maps. On a weekly basis, Nintendo has been unlocking new content for the game however, this ranged from new weapons to new maps, and even some new modes.

Was this idea of locking away a lot of content from launch beneficial for Splatoon though? Find out what we think after the break!

TOURNEY – Summer Splat-athon Supreme

What’s this? Yet another tournament? It seems like August is the month of tourneys, and what’s better than to compete in style and ink with Splatoon. A couple months ago, I announced this tournament (which isn’t technically a NintyBuzz one) but now I can officially announce when the tourney will start.

I plan to start the tournament on Wednesday, 12th August 2015. Please note that this is the start date, different battles may take place on different days up to the end of August. I can also announce that the winner of the tournament will also receive a free Amiibo of their choice as well as boasting rights. The deadline to register for the tournament will be Friday 7th August 2015 at 6pm BST.

Please click here to sign up for the tournament (you will need to create a free account at 3DS Buzz first).

Happy Splatting!

REVIEW – Splatoon

The weather is getting hot (finally) and school’s breaking up (hopefully). Summer is coming and it is the perfect time for riding some gnarly waves, delicious BBQs, staying fresh, swimming in ink, and, most importantly, battling in turf wars! Splatoon was released exclusively for the Wii U only a few weeks ago, and I was able to spend some time with it, being both a squid and a kid.

Find out whether Splatoon is as fresh as the Krak-on Splat Roller or unfresh like the Octolings… after the break!

Splat Direct! Splatoon Nintendo Direct Next Thursday

Update – Apologies, the reported date is a Thursday, NOT a Friday.

We don’t usually cover news, but when we do, it’s got to be exciting, and here we are! We may have had a Nintendo Direct at the beginning of the month (not including the Xenoblade Mini-Direct last week), but it seems they think that we already deserve another direct, this time focusing on Splatoon, next Thursday (7th May 2015)

You can expect it to air in various regions as follows:

North America – 10am EST

UK – 3pm BST

Europe – 4pm CEST

Australia/New Zealand – Midnight AEST

Japan – 11pm

No news yet how long this Direct will be, it could just be another mini-Direct, but we’ll be sure to have a discussion about the event soon after.

Splatoon will be released on the 29th May 2015 in Europe and North America.
