I don't really understand why and when to use secondary weapons. They just seem to be using too much ink to be worth it. Maybe the curling one isn't that good?

Oh god I heard the nightmares of NSMB2 on the 3DS!

I'm more or less interested in SM3DL, because having seen all those 2D Mario's flooding the 3DS and Wii U it did bring at least some breath of fresh air. The gameplay similarities are like Mario Galaxy between SM3DL of how you progress in the game. With somewhat linear pathing and platforms 'n enemies in your way too. Sure it won't be as good as the Galaxy games but it isn't that bad from the looks of it, plus it also does help they have a Super Mario Bros. 2 character differences in playstyles too. Makes it rather unique in a sense to want to try them out in different levels.

No sweat. I was actually surprised by how much you have improved in just a day. Thinking about it, the motion controls don't really matter for the roller. You never really have to look up unless you want to fling paint over a short wall or something.

The matches today were LAGGY AS HELL. Like, wow. I always died in one hit, even with the ink armor activated. There were enemy dudes seemingly materializing out of thin air all around me, absolutely insane. That last match, though. Yeah, just look at what happened after you left:

"Devastating" is one word to describe that.

What you're describing is EXACTLY what I experienced with Splatoon 1. Can't aim, using rollers because I don't have to aim, trying to pick off seemingly vulnerable opponents, forgetting that there is a special attack - it all sounds so familiar.

Rollers are slow to attack. By the time you manage to swing that beast, the enemy has already landed four to five hits on you. The special attack is one solution, but it's highly risky to use. Only ever use it when you are sure to have your enemy cornered or they don't see you coming because it can EASILY be avoided. Furthermore, they can then just wait for you to finish your animation and then simply shoot you while you're defenseless. You can even be killed mid-animation. The carbon roller is even worse. It's slightly faster but much weaker. One-shotting enemies is no longer possible, not even when running right into them. You'll just bounce back.

As said, maybe try turning motion controls off for a few matches. Just remember to adjust the stick sensitivity accordingly; that may just be the thing to make a difference. The higher the sensitivity, the faster you can aim and turn around to flee (and see where you're going).

I'm still waiting for a weapon that combines the rapidity of my current gun with somewhat decent special weapon. The ink armor is okay, but that only gives me but half a second more to life in close combat. I took a liking to the delayed grenade, though. I just wished I could throw it a little further.

Ahh alright, if I can at least say something a saving grace for Super Mario World at least is this. Whether you do a casual just want to play to beat it or go for the 100% (at least what I have seen in Let's Plays) in SMW it is a fantastic time to say the least. Even if you have to just to play it, just get it on an emulator. But when comparing it to DKC casually or even 100% DKC just does a lot more with it overall to make them a better game than any of the 2D Mario games.

Another thing about 2D Mario, even though people love SMW but just as much with Super Mario Bros. 3. I kind of like the American Super Mario Bros. 2 a lot more!

It also doesn't help the NSMB's whether it was on the Wii or Wii U really is lacking anything well new because it literally reuses ideas way too much. That is why I was more interested in Super Mario 3D land more than anything.

Yeah, maybe it's because of the new physics but I lost a total of 132 lives trying to bead 3D World. Some of the levels took my 3D Mario skills by surprise and I totally had my ass handed to me in Bowser-7, since it's the only level in which the Golden Leaf appeared, I'm gonna assume that's where I lost the most lives.

And yes, I'm planning to go for completion. But I'll probably "go back in time" a little bit... I finally got my red New 3DS XL and I have some business I have to take care of on it.

Wanted a general opinion how you feel about this. I've talked to a few people before you about my opinion and some agreed but only a few didn't. But Super Mario World, I did grow up with it and played it a lot more on the Virtual Console on the Wii. Although that is many peoples personal favorite 2D Mario game, I still prefer the Donkey Kong Country series in general for my 2D Platforming fix and as well I think it did a lot better then Mario would ever do as a 2D Platformer like Donkey Kong Country Returns (the waggle Wii Mote controls only being the main problem) and Tropical Freeze.

3D Platforming is a different story the only true 3D Platformer we got for Donkey Kong is Donkey Kong 64, I do personally love it but I will have to admit Mario has certainly more games under it's belt to warrant is as a better 3D Platformer with the like of Sunshine and Mario Galaxy 1 & 2.

Thank you for the warm words. I think I absolutely suck. Then again, it definitely comes down to the team. If your team is bad, you can play as perfectly as you want - you will still lose.

As for the weapon, yes. The Junior surprised me as well. The subweapon and the special are decent and the rate of fire is pretty good. When playing the first Splatoon, I always (ALWAYS) used the roller because I thought them to be easy to use and really overpowered. Then they were nerfed beyond recognition, forcing me to change my style of play. Then I got frustated because I couldn't aim to save my life. So I eventually quit Splatoon. With part 2 out and ready to be tackled, using projectile weapons finally clicked with me. I find the roller particularly useless - I can't even reach 500 points worth of painted ground with this thing anymore. When using the starting weapon, I reach 1,000 or more regularly. It's quite the difference. The Dualies are pretty good as well, but I never used the dodge mechanic, so the lowered rate of fire killed it for me. Though I still feel like everyone else can aim MUCH MUCH faster than myself and takes more hits to go down than myself, the starting gun is the one I can wreak most havoc with.

I think you played a little ... slow? Careless? I dunno, I was always able to trace your movements and you never dodged, even when you saw me. The single most important thing as a roller user is to never take opponents head-on. You WILL die. That's what you did most of the time. Once you see someone coming towards you, the only thing on your mind should be "getting the hell away from there". Become a squid and try to maneuver around the guy to surprise them from behind or above. You can jump, then attack to cover a little extra range, which is also good for quickly covering ground if you need to get away fast.

Have you tried different weapons? Are you playing with motion controls? I turned them off immediately because I felt like they were doing whatever they felt like doing, but there are people who claim that "this is the way to play". I dunno. Can't bother. Maybe it's for you.

Moray Towers is the worst map, by the way. Goes against every mechanic in Splatoon and benefits snipers especially. There is nothing more frustating than going up against someone who can actually wield the sniper rifle. Well, a losing streak, maybe, but snipers are definitely up there.

I'm enjoying Ever Oasis a lot because its genre hits all the right notes for me personally. Strong Fantasy Life vibe, Zelda/Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicle elements. There was more to do with resource gathering than I expected from the demo (which is a good thing). I'd say if you tried the free demo and it seems interesting, I would pick it up. Its total game length seems like it will be close to what Fantasy Life (without DLC) was for me.

The Trial of the Swords is pretty fun albeit very challenging. I think I may have died around 20-30 times, but it is split up into 3 different trials so if you die on one of the later floors you don't have to go back to the very beginning. The new armor is pretty charming as well but I do agree with you that it isn't worth $20 for just this one pack.

I don't know, I mean I haven't played Super Mario 3D Land despite actually owning it (hopefully that'll change soon).
Considering the last 3D Mario I played was Super Mario Galaxy 2 around 2011, so it's been a while. The long jump doesn't cover as much distance as I remembered, and not being able to do triple or even double jumps is really a drawback to my 3D Mario skills.
Cannot deny I've been enjoying it, though.

And yes, I've noticed my avatar and banner are gone. Apparently, Photobucket wants me to pay a lot of money to be able to hotlink my stored images. Of course I won't pay for that, I'd rather make another account in a different hosting site, but I haven't done it because...I'm lazy. Nah, not really, but I've been really busy recently.

So, how was Tropical Freeze?
