PSTS Episode 145 – Splatoon Beta, Bloodstained Kickstarter, and Sounds Across the Naaaaation

Nintendo popped a surprise on us all last week, giving Wii U owners a chance to test out the upcoming squid-based shooter. Jeff and J.D. jumped (and swam) on this opportunity, and share their findings here. Plus discussions on the latest Metroidvania Kickstarter from the big-name developer himself, Nintendo’s plans for theme parks, and another Assassin’s Cree–*snore*.

    I did not know that. Is it still going on? I’ll have to try this out on my Wii U later today :].

      Unfortunately the Splatoon beta is already over 😦 They only did 3 one hour blocks between Friday and Saturday last week, probably just to test out the online in the wild before launch. This game is definitely worth checking out though!

        That sucks. I’m honestly not sold on it that’s why I wanted to try it out. Maybe we’ll get a real demo after the launch because this isn’t a game I can see myself throwing a lot of cash at.

        Yeah I really wish they would have kept the beta open longer since there probably are quite a few people that are on the fence about it. We will most likely be picking it up around launch so we can provide some more insight once we get it. A demo would be super nice though around launch.

        Yeah. I’m going to read some reviews/watch a bunch of gameplay before I throw my hard earned cash at it. The only game I know I’m getting for sure is The Witcher 3 on my PC.

        I’ve never played the Witcher games but everyone seems to love them. Jeff played them a bit but I think he didn’t get as in to them. I just want Xenoblade to come out!!

        I actually have Xenoblade and Witcher 3 on my most anticipated games of 2015 :]. Witcher 3 is number 1 of course. I have both Witchers on PC and I’ve played them to death. I can’t wait for part 3. It’s going to be amazing.

        In case you didn’t know, there’s another Splatoon Global Testfire time happening tomorrow the 23rd from 3-4 pm PST. Now you can test it out to see what you think.

        Thanks for letting me know. I’ll have to force myself off of The Witcher III to check it out :].

        Thanks again.
