    Yep, cheers chaps, when is the splatfest? Are we gonna try to do an EG team for the last one? Me and Jono have teamed up for a few of them and it's always been a blast.

    Gonna call it a night too. I recently got back into Time Trialling on MK8 but it really fucks with my hands these days. I'm getting pain in my finger joints after about 1/2 an hour and have to stop. Still enjoying it though. /masochist

    Fuck Mario Kart time trials. I still have nightmares about Funky Kong, Bowser Bike and Ghost Valley 2.

    I've lost it a little on Mario Kart. I just haven't played it enough on Switch.

    @DangerousDave_87 There was a group of us on the Wii who thought it was a good idea to do time trials and it got crazy. I have some grainy videos on YouTube somewhere. I'll have to have a look for them.

    Splattershot is a good gun to start. The game is mostly about painting stuff so to start just do that. Get used to swimming in ink, the squid jumps (jumping from swim) and climbing up inky walls.

    Get used to using your subs and specials. And when you have the mechanics down itís just a case of pushing forward a bit and actually shooting people.

    Iím not so good at that, but I find if you keep moving youíre more likely to catch people side on unawares and then you have more chance. Good luck.

    And donít forget to buy kit and keep upgrading it.

    @The_Goon Go to Sheldon's shop (the weapon shop) and test some of the weapons. Hit the dummies and practise using gyro to target. Find a weapon that suits you. I would suggest Splattershot Jr or Areospray. Snipers are hard to use so I wouldn't use those just yet.

    Once in a game, paint the ground. That is purpose of the game. Fight if you have to, swim away if you have to. The better you get, the more chance you have of surviving a splat off. The game is very frantic:

    And you have to try and use your secondary and special weapons to get an advantage:

    Last of all have fun, although that can be tough when Thingy is hunting you down

    Well, that was frustrating. I losing duels with someone who had the same weapon. 3-4 hits and nothing for me, the same for them and I'm splatted.

    Checked my connection and it says it's ok, but I don't trust Virgin.

    @Jono62 It looks like you've copied and pasted an old message of mine! Some nights it gets really bad. Other times it's fine. I've never really figured out why it happens, but I've come to accept it's likely that almost every player is in the same boat.

    You'll have to let us know when you're next on. Have we all decided on a Splatfest team?

    I'll join you on order, then. I've no idea if I'll be around for the actual Splatfest yet, but will try and get online either tonight or tomorrow if I get enough work done.

    Don't think Kevin is hanging around, but I think he was cheating. Killed him in my own base and got splatted by him less than 10 seconds later, still in my own base. :/
