Here’s something for Splatoon 2 players to be thankful for this week. The game’s next big update drops on November 23, adding four battle stages, a new Salmon Run stage, four hairstyles, an increased level cap, fresh tunes and more.
This weekend’s Squidstorm 2017 in Boston hosted a number of Splatoon teams both amateur and pro, but few captured our hearts like Squidlife Crisis, whose player “moose” grabbed the Rainmaker and ran the wrong way with it.
Last week, a Nintendo Switch update made it possible to share short videos of select first-party games on social media. The feature isn’t perfect, but it doesn’t matter. Right now, despite being in the middle of fall game season, many video game fans are talking about months-old Nintendo releases instead.
Next weekend, European Splatoon 2 players will have the chance to weigh in on how toilet paper should be loaded. Front roll or back roll? It’s a question that could only be asked by someone who’s never wiped their ass before.
Competitive video games are unique in that they offer an international field of play. Unlike soccer or football, video games let you play the best in the world without having to travel, creating an international dialogue of play and growth. For Splatoon 2 players though, the current matchmaking system hinders that…
Nintendo’s phone app for the Switch was updated today, fixing two really annoying issues with voice chat.
When Splatoon 2 launched, the Stingray was a special that sounded neat on paper. A giant blast of paint, firing across the map, dousing all in sight. In practice, not so much. But the most recent patch to Splatoon 2 has added some oomph back to the Stingray, and it’s becoming a new favorite of mine.

Though the hype surrounding the sequel to everyone’s favorite squid fighting simulator has died down a bit, players are still flocking to the games ever-changing horde mode.
Since Nintendo released the Switch’s cephalopod third-person shooter Splatoon 2 in late July, they’ve been injecting the game with a continuous stream of excellent weapons. After finding my cozy comfort zone of Splatoon 2 weapons immediately after launch, Nintendo’s dedication to varying the game’s weapon arsenal is…
Yesterday, my colleague Jason Schreier and I spent 12 hours sitting on my couch and streaming video games. We ate some pizza, sang some songs, and beat some bosses. It was fun.
Splatoon 2's upcoming DLC continues to prove the squid kid franchise has, bar none, the best weapons in the genre. Behold: the Bubble Blower, a new special weapon.
We have often espoused the virtues of inking your spawn in Splatoon 2's Turf War mode, but rarely do you see dedication like player “Giokiller” exhibited in one match.
Nintendo’s brilliant online shooter Splatoon 2 deserves to be copied by other similar games. Not necessarily the fashion stuff or the whole “paint the floor” thing. Rather, some of the game’s smaller ideas....
When I was younger, I used to play online games with strangers. By the end of the match, I’d add them to my friends list, and we’d become close friends—even if they were absolute jerks to me. That almost never happens anymore.
The Splatfest festivities are over and the results are in: mayo may have lost the popular vote, but it still managed to take home the prize. And yet, many salty ketchup players are calling shenanigans.
