KoopaTV Live Reacts: Nintendo Treehouse Live | E3: Hollow Knight, Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - DLC content, the log.

Hour three of Nintendo Treehouse Live | E3 2018. We're hanging in there, watching some interesting Hollow Knight (announced yesterday for Nintendo Switch and released), as well as the Splatoon 2 Octoling Expansion, which comes out tonight as announced yesterday!

In this log are yours truly, RawkHawk2010, Wendy, and friend-of-KoopaTV Ryu (or Mariosun90). You can tell from the log that I'm the only one on staff who likes the Splatoon series, but it looks like the Octo Expansion has gotten the interest of people who don't normally appreciate Splatoon's gameplay! You'll have to read the log to see what we think of Hollow Knight.

As the hours keep rolling in, we advise you to consult our E3 Weeks 2018 Schedule.

[1:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Welcome back.

[1:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ari and William and Samantha are on stage for Hollow Knight.

[1:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: First two dudes are Hollow Knight devs.

[1:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Coming soon for Hollow Knight" didn't it just come out yesterday?

[1:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now they're talking about DLC?

[1:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: For free.

Hollow Knight: gods and glory

[2:00 PM] Ryu: It's been out for a while everywhere else

[2:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: How much do you know 'bout it?

[2:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They say it's a Metroidvania that feels good.

[2:05 PM] RawkHawk2010: btw even though the XC2 costumes take up limited Aux Core/Accessory space, they also grant buffs that are actually good unlike BotW's special costumes that grant no benefit.

[2:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: If you wanna, say, wear Ganondorf's cape, it requires reverting to a weakling.

[2:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm hungry.

[2:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: Take care of that before Tennis.

[2:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hollow Knight looks nice.

[2:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I should take a screenshot.

Hollow Knight Dung Defender
Here's a screenshot of Dung Defender's defeat.

[2:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: Pika screeching in the background is once again making things terrifying..

[2:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Why is it always Pikachu?

[2:08 PM] RawkHawk2010: I assume it's cuz they're using no one else in Let's Go!.

[2:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought it was Pikachu using Volt Tackle in Smash.

[2:10 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is the protagonist a bug?

[2:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yes.

[2:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And they're fighting a rival named Hornets.

[2:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: She has a skirt or something.

[2:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And tries to stab you.

[2:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "All the characters we create, we really love those characters, and we want to get into them and find out more about them."

[2:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Anti-Miyamotion philosophies?

[2:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Maybe we should support this.

[2:11 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well it doesn't look like trash.

[2:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: anti-Nu Rare philosophies too.

[2:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Vast history and lore in the bug kingdom.

[2:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Paint Master seems like a Splatoon character.

Hollow Knight gods and glory content update Paint Master boss
Paint Master is painting a lot of stuff on the ground, which segues nicely into the second game of the log.

[2:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: Looks like a better take than A Bug's Life.

[2:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: Or god forbid, "Ants."

[2:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: Antz*

[2:13 PM] RawkHawk2010:

[2:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ya I'm not carrying that to the log

[2:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ew.

[2:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're thanking Nintendo.

[2:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion next.

[2:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought it'd be Smash.

[2:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Back.

[2:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AHH

[2:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Squid Research Lab people.

[2:22 PM] RawkHawk2010: Splatoon 2's producer didn't take a midnight flight back home.

[2:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah since this comes out tonight.

[2:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Possible spoiler issues.

[2:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: Probably why it's a good idea Challenge Battle Mode doesn't come out tonight.

[2:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Echoing into a deep underground...

[2:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...

[2:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Mysterious poem...

[2:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "AHOY! OCTOLING!" - Cap'n Cuttlefish

[2:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Known as ??? so far)

[2:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He wants to beat you up.

[2:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: Tourette's

[2:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But he seems lost.

[2:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He last remembers your playable character battling Agent 3 in Octo Valley (the first Splatoon) and suddenly they end up in this sewer.

[2:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So he wants a temporary truce.

[2:26 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: DID SOMEONE SAY METROIDVANIA!?

[2:26 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: ./random

[2:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah try not to miss a whole segment relevant to your interests.

[2:27 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: I was either a) trying not to die due to something about kidneys

[2:27 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: or b) cats.

[2:27 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: and c) I actually do work. >_>

[2:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: pft

[2:27 PM] RawkHawk2010: You missed a Metroidvania about bugs.

[2:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hollow Knight.

[2:27 PM] RawkHawk2010: Looked pretty good actually.

[2:27 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: Coming on Switch?

[2:27 PM] RawkHawk2010: Yes

[2:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But why is she going to Mixer?

[2:30 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: hmm found the spanish feed lol

[2:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: We're already watching Nintendo Treehouse Live on Twitch. >_>

[2:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The Hollow Knight segment ended.

[2:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Several minutes ago.

[2:30 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: man I hate twitch

[2:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now it's Splatoon 2's Octo Expansion.

[2:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But you have a Twitch channel.

[2:31 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: Used to.

[2:31 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: I moved to Mixer a few months ago actually.

[2:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: train

[2:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: Octoling entering train

[2:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: Octoling gonna die

[2:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Can we talk about this later?

[2:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: Splatoon?

[2:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Our viewers actually want to see discussion on Splatoon 2.

[2:32 PM] RawkHawk2010: Or trains?

[2:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh, talk about Mixer later.

[2:32 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh

[2:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Anyway, Octoling girl is walking through the tracks.

[2:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Which seems like a good way to die.

[2:32 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is this Zelda but Splatoon

[2:32 PM] RawkHawk2010: It looks like Zelda but Splatoon

[2:32 PM] RawkHawk2010: Locked doors, need keys.(edited)

[2:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: From a pod.

[2:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: She's trying to find a key.

Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion tutorial level key
...The key is up here! (Not that you can get a sense of height from this screenshot.)

[2:34 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: hmm my problem with playing splatoon is it's a shooter.

[2:34 PM] RawkHawk2010: Rail grinding.

[2:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: There are lots of suspicious places in this room.

[2:34 PM] RawkHawk2010: Rail grinding is the only reason I've ever wanted to play Splatoon.

[2:34 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: ok Sonic platforming, that's legit

[2:35 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: The captain's not lying. :open_mouth:

[2:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The whole point of the Octo Expansion is that it's dedicated to single player content for people who enjoyed the story modes of Splatoon and Splatoon 2.

[2:35 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: I'd be pissed too if he stole my weapon.

[2:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: Mostly don't like the Inklings, mostly don't like the music,  mostly don't like the gameplay, but I like rail-grinding.

[2:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: This story may be alright.

[2:36 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: Also I'm a rebel and watching the Youtube live feed which seems to be slower than Twitch.

[2:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Deepsea Metro Central Station.

[2:36 PM] RawkHawk2010: Shelly de Killer

[2:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: oh yikes it is Shelly de Killer

Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion answer phone
Answer phone.
Now imagine the phone has eyes and a mouth and it moves as it talks.

[2:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: Emphasis on SHELLy

[2:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The parts of the phone are eyes and a mouth.

[2:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well now it's talking in slang.

[2:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: Promised Land

[2:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: That's in Zelda.

[2:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You think Shelly de Killer might have kids?

[2:37 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: [REDACTED]

[2:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: Ludwig I can't talk too much about Shelly de Killer. :pikachu_lips:

[2:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...

[2:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 'kay.

[2:38 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: Sooper sekrit info.

[2:38 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: If you know what I mean.

[2:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Named Agent 8 because they're Applicant 10,008.

[2:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: Misnomer

[2:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: Dude

[2:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: This reminds me of Ghost Trick.

[2:39 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: We shall not talk about the other agents.

[2:39 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: [REDACTED]

[2:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: Old man is the lamp.

[2:40 PM] RawkHawk2010: Can't remember their name.

[2:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SUBWAY TRAIN

[2:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: DON'T GO IN IT

[2:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: TRAINS ARE DEADLY

[2:40 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: MISSILE

[2:40 PM] RawkHawk2010: Definitely Ghost Trick.

[2:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: With trains instead of phone lines?

[2:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: Yes even though you can grind across lines.

[2:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: C. Q. Cumber

[2:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: C.Q. Cumber the conductor.

[2:41 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: Aw.

[2:41 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: Why.

[2:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: As opposed to Poppi QT

[2:41 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: IT'S EVEN A SLUG

[2:41 PM] Ryu: I'm reacting, but I'm not watching

[2:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: See Ludwig, I like this character.

[2:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Kamabo Corporation.

[2:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: Don't like an Inkling, like this thing.

[2:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: Why can't I play as this thing?

[2:42 PM] Ryu: Are they showing Ghost Trick?

[2:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: If I could play as C. Q. Cucumber I'd buy Splatoon.

[2:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No ,they're showing Splatoon 2's Octo Expansion.

[2:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: This is why characters are important.

[2:42 PM] Ryu: What a disappointment

[2:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You should watch and react instead of just react. >_>

[2:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "You must also find and collect the four thangs."

[2:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well C.Q. Cumber doesn't have hands.

[2:43 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: What won't stop him from using his...

[2:43 PM] RawkHawk2010: Doesn't stop Goomba. :open_mouth:

[2:43 PM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: Appendices....?

[2:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Fake Plastic Station"

[2:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: There's fake (?) trees.

[2:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: In this subway station.

[2:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: There's a demented Octoling that appeared that wants to destroy Agent 8.

[2:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: This looks like the first levels of the BotW trials.

[2:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: Cuz of trees.

[2:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Cap'n Cuttlefish thought that Agent 8 and demented Octoling would get along but nah.

[2:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 80  Memcakes (for 80 stages)

[3:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The creepy look on the Inkling Memcake's face is how the Octoling perceives Inklings.

Your Octarian tries to recall the past.

[3:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 'cause they're Octoling memories.

[3:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: EWWWW NEXT UP ARE RABBIDS



Even if the staffers are grossed out by what's to come, they also hope that you are more fearless and ready to read what's coming.


The reaction log before this had Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (as do most of these), as well as Super Mario Party.
Are the Rabbids bearable if Donkey Kong is with them?
