Splatoon 1 & 2

Does this mean we will finally get decent voice chat for Splatoon?

This is the hardest Splatfest decision I personally have ever faced. But I chose, and my choice is pancakes.

Is the level of competition insanely high in the 15 minutes before a Splatfest starts, or am I just getting worse at this game?

That is verrrry difficult. On their own, with just butter and syrup, I think I'd give an edge to waffles. Also, only one of them gets paired with fried chicken to form something delicious that we self-deceivingly refer to as a balanced meal.

However! At my house we usually add stuff to our pancakes. We started with chocolate chips, then added peanut butter chips, and recently discovered that they make cinnamon chips, too! That pushes pancakes over the top, for me.

I think you've touched the heart of the matter. I do like to add roasted cacao nibs to my waffles, but chocolate chips melt too easily and then burn on the iron, and fruit is similarly out of the question. I made pancakes yesterday and I stirred some frozen blueberries into the batter, yum.

Waffles have the edge in the leftovers department, though. I freeze my extras and reheat them in the toaster (broken into one quarter per slot), and they're as crispy as ever. Reheated pancakes don't quite measure up.

Anyway I've been getting my butt kicked fighting for pancakes today. I'm definitely rusty.

This is 100% correct. We actually do exactly the same thing with leftover waffles!

Frozen waffles are fab. Great go-to mornings when you want something warm, but don't want to prep.

I missed this Splatfest... yet another. I LOVE Splatoon. Just think I went too hard, too fast with this one at launch.

It's technically too late for this month, but I propose from here on we engage in Second Splaturdays. Every second Saturday of the month we hop on Discord or something and play some Splatoon 2. This way some of us can be encouraged to keep playing even after the final SplatFest.

Also: I never seem to even find out when a SplatFest is taking place these days. I didn't realize there was a pancake/waffle one until you all were playing it already.

I'd be down for that. I still like Splatoon, even if I've gotten away from it to move on to other things. Playing with some GWJers would be a fantastic excuse to go back.

Yeah then maybe I wouldn't suck so much during splatfest if I played a little between them.

I get pretty frustrated and quit before I get decent rewards.

Do folks want to try for a Second Splaturday on the 9th? And where should we convene for voice chat?

I'm down, although I'm only available in the morning and maybe early afternoon, and possibly late in the evening that day.

I don't use voice chat a whole lot, so I'll leave that for others to decide where they want to go. For a novelty, we could try the Nintendo app.

Actually the next SplatFest was just announced. Knights vs. Wizards is the global theme for March 16th and 17th. I'll try to remember to play some, but as usual the timing is rather rough. I'll have just gotten Caligula Effect: Overdose that Tuesday.

Well, do we want to push back the Second Splaturday a week to grab the splatfest and maybe some more people, or still try to find a time that works for tomorrow?

I think try for the SplatFest instead. I'll also cross-post to the Switch Catch-All in case people aren't paying attention to this one.

Got it. It'll also give me a chance to brush back up (heh) over the next week.

It's good to play in the lead up to splatfest if you want to earn some cheap abilty tokens.
