Splatoon 1 & 2

How many saves are allowed? If I want to have a separate squid girl from Shop's, will that work?

It's kind of a pain. You can have one character per NNID, so to switch between your squid and Shop's, you'd need to exit the game, switch users, then re-launch it.

It's something I hope they fix in a patch.

Uggggh okay. Thanks for the info.

Alternatively, you can change your appearance at any time. It's under the options menu, which is a tap on the gamepad. Since customization comes down to gender, skin color, and eye color, you can swap the appearance quickly.

Gear is more of a pain, and you'll play under the name of whoever has the main NNID for the console.

Like I said, hoping for a patch.

That's not surprising since I think Mario Kart 8 does something similar. Seems more like a system architecture issue than something specific to Splatoon

Clearly the answer is a second TV and second Wii U.

Anyone playing right now? I may fire it up.

Without off-TV play and Heavensward around the corner, this may be their only hope.

Guess what discussion we had last night? :p

Where to put the second Wii U?

I was playing. I can play again. my NNID is gamerparent. Are we friends yet? What's your NNID?

Maybe I should just buy a new computer capable of running the thing :p

I'm gonna try to hop in with you. Hope I play okay >_<

I love me the roller.

I wonder if the ranked matches will let you specifically team up with friends? As much as I like shooting gamerparent...

Good game btw, gamerparent! Was fun

No, but the pre-made 4v4 mode coming in August will.

Just played up to level 4, got some gear, then tried the single player stuff for a bit. It seems that you accumulate more of the ability gauge (R-Stick ability) by painting floor rather than wall. Which I suppose makes sense, and means I shouldn't bother with walls as much as I have been in multiplayer.

Lot of fun so far. Got in a couple matches with ChrisLTD, and even got to splat him once!

Walls don't count toward the tally at the end, anyway.

Ahh damn... that Chris was you?

Yup! Wondering if I should change my name to CCes or ChrisGWJ for clarity... wait, does Nintendo permit name changing like that?

Is there some kind of tag on the screen that shows me as a friend?

I'm pretty sure they use the name you gave your Mii, not your NNID. So I'll show up as A., for example, instead of as ClockworkHouse.

Unless they do the Sony thing where they show you your name and everyone else your handle, but I don't think so.
