Splatoon 2 World Championship Grand Finals (Live Reactions!)

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - WITH SHOCKING ANNOUNCEMENTS AT THE END!

The pinnacle of competitive Splatoon 2 is right here. Recognised by Nintendo on their E3 2018 time. From the semi-finals that we sort of watched, it's Japan's GG BoyZ vs. Germany's BackSquids.

I'm engaged. Rawk isn't, ‘cause he doesn't care about Splatoon 2.


We're almost done with Tuesday — look at the E3 Weeks 2018 Schedule to know all that happened today and the rest of E3!

[4:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: HEY GUYS.

[4:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: We got a countdown going for the SPLATOON 2 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS.

[4:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: In 15 seconds!

[4:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh

[4:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: Dark Samus is a character created by the West.

[4:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Mr. Nogami on stage.

[4:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Lots of people in this venue.

[4:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Herro everyone!"

[4:04 PM] RawkHawk2010: I don't understand how a Krystal fan can bitch really.

[4:04 PM] RawkHawk2010: Her entire scene from Brawl was cut in Smash 4.

[4:04 PM] RawkHawk2010: Then all of Star Fox got rebooted.

[4:05 PM] RawkHawk2010: And...now she's back, with the Adventures staff.

[4:05 PM] RawkHawk2010: That's a miracle.

[4:05 PM] RawkHawk2010: (staff as in pole, not developers)

[4:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Rawk, they have the same introduction to the teams as before.

[4:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So we didn't have to leave the PC Gaming Show.

[4:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: So that was a complete waste?

[4:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: Nintendo must've known no one was watching the semi-finals?

[4:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well fuck me then.

[4:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yup.

[4:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They got the same "you're not smiling" gag.

[4:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: Nintendo should've included a"You have nothing to lose by not watching this." disclaimer.

[4:08 PM] RawkHawk2010: For the people. you know, actually watching E3.

[4:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: *the

[4:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Right after this.

[4:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So if you want Smash, you want a knockout.

[4:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: We're rooting for the GGboyz since we don't want Europe to win.

[4:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: Emily Rogers hasn't tweeted today.

[4:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: Wonder why.

[4:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Because she's FAKE NEWS.

[4:13 PM] RawkHawk2010:

[4:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: Also the eShop now says Yoshi is a 2019 game.

[4:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: This game will have been in development for at least four years.

[4:17 PM] RawkHawk2010: aka character designer for Awakening/Fates/No More Heroes

[4:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: Weren't you entertaining the thought that that was No More Heroes before it finished?

[4:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh...no.

[4:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: MS90 and I were just noting that it resembles the art style.

[4:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And attitude.

[4:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: Also same guy who designed Chrom. :x

[4:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: So I dunno how you should receive that.

[4:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'll receive it as

[4:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Intelligent Systems told him to design a boring blue hair man, and so he did."

[4:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: ya

[4:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: One of NMH's greatest strengths are character designs.

[4:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So absolutely no worries about competence.

[4:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Wait.

[4:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Wait a minute.

[4:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wot

[4:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: Yusuke Kozaki designed Pokemon GO's Professor Willow?!

[4:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So this'll be longer than 20 minutes.

[4:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nintendo gave the teams special custom headphones to communicate to one another.

[4:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I wonder if they'll sell them.

[4:26 PM] RawkHawk2010:

[4:58 PM] RawkHawk2010: Was it bowing before he got the medal because it was a bow or because it was technically bowing but just to get the medal put on his head?

  1. This was certainly a pleasant surprise that made up for the somewhat disappointing Direct. I only completed the story mode about a week ago, so I'm hyped to be able to squid jump back into a new adventure with Octolings and see how it all plays out.

    1. Ngyes!

      I'm actually slightly upset that the Octo Expansion is coming out tonight since I was planning my game-playing-pace around it being available in the summer like they promised.

      I DON'T HAVE TIIIIIME.
