Splatoon: "Captain Elias"
Posted: Monday June 1st, 2015 by

It seems like Splatoon erupted onto the game scene out of no where. I know this isn't actually the case. But, everywhere I've turned the last few days it seems like there's another gamer news article about how awesome it is.

Developed and published by Nintendo for the Wii U, it's a break from the IP recycling we're used to. It's a third person "shooter" where you play squid/kid hybrid using paint blasters to mark your turf. Each match you rush to lay down more of your ink color than you opponents can lay down of theirs. Team with the highest percentage at the end of the bout wins.

Watching game play videos, I admit to being intrigued. I am not in the market for a new console right now though. And, I don't own the one console you can play this game on: the Wii U.

If any of you have played it, I'd like to hear your thoughts.

In case you missed the reference, the comic is a parody of the iconic 'Captain Elias' scene from Platoon.
