    Having a drifting joycon really makes it tough to splat sometimes.

    Definitely. Throw a bomb and run.

    @Jono62 Why do you still not have a pro controller? And a TV?

    @Thingy I do and I do, but I find it hard to play on the big screen.

    @Jono62 I've tried playing this handheld and I find it the least comfortable game in that mode.

    Cheers for the games all. It was good to be back. I'm ready for tomorrow with the splatfest.

    Oh and a nice EG double

    I can only play with detached joycons now. I've tried with the pro controller but it feels so restricting. Unfortunately the joycons are not anything like as stable to aim with.

    @Jono62 Sorry! I didn't see this last night. Had a huge falling out with the other half and ended up sleeping on the sofa. I noticed you lot were online, but I couldn't muster the enthusiasm to play anything. Just watched random videos until I fell asleep.

    Might be around one of these evenings, though.

    Playing video games with friends while you're having a row with the other half never ends well. Been there, done that

    Last splatfest is in July... does this mean we are getting splatoon 3 this year?

    I very much doubt it. I think Splatoon 2 actually came out a year after support for the first game ended, but that was purely because Nintendo had a new console out and were trying to flesh out that first year with as many top-tier Nintendo games as possible. I don't think they have a reason to announce a Splatoon 3, really.

    As I mentioned earlier, I honestly believe Splatoon will go the way of Mario Kart, Smash Bros and Animal Crossing; A one-per-console affair. I can't see that being any different, even if the next game offers a dramatic change in gameplay.

    Edit - Having said that, I don't know why the Splatfests are coming to an end. They don't appear to require a lot of effort and there's plenty of subject matter they could use. They could even get away with using old splatfest maps over and over again.

    One thing that will continue though, is weapon and map balancing. The original game was still getting that, even after developers said they were done with the game.

    If they aren't doing Splatfests anymore I wish they would just make Turf War part of Ranked. It's a good mode but it feels a bit empty to me when wins don't really lead to anything.

    I don't know which ones exactly, but those are dualies. Most of them have increased fire rate immediately after a dodge roll.

    @Thingy What side did you choose for the Splatfest?

    Not chosen yet, but Jono went Adult. So that. You've rescued me from a horrendous losing streak here.

    There were three of them earlier, all on the same team. They wiped the floor with us.

    It's been so long since I used the roller, I'm almost too scared to try it again.

    Ooh, Roller action. Swapping after this game.

    Not sure how that Splashdown got you. Sorry. That felt like cheating. You were well outside the splash radius.

    I've switched to the Splattershot Pro. Up close and personal with the roller isn't cutting it in this group.

    I'm doing woeful with the roller, but purely because I'm playing woefully.

    I know you watch the gaming news, was the E3 Direct worth watching?
