Oh my gosh this is why I hates these kind of sites just to stirr stuff up...
It's have been translated and it's Links SISTER! Ok?
BUMP. Here's a new photo for all you fine Funhouse citizens to caption.
I don't need some gorefest here but something more like Metroid Prime Hunters in terms of style would be more up my alley. The blatant non-violence of shooting paint and the children main characters is too much for me. It's like some parody of what non-Nintendo fans would have expected during the PS1/N64 days. This style reminds me of Billy Hatcher for a Gamecube which is a good example of a visual style that is probably trying to have Mario-style universal appeal but gets it wrong and caters too young.
I'm saying that the style of this game ISN'T for all ages but rather for kids. That's what turns me off about it. You may see it differently but I'm turned off because to me it looks like a kids game, instead of an all-ages game like Mario is. Or Nintendo is trying for all ages but they're missing the mark, at least in my eyes anyway.
You think Nintendo has to resort to paint and kid protagonists to make an original shooter?
Though I can't but feel that if Nintendo had even remotely acceptable third party support their games wouldn't face such scrutiny. This ain't just a "kiddy" shooter, it's the ONLY notable shooter of any sort on the Wii U. You play Splatoon or you don't play and I think this is lame as effectively the ONLY option for the genre. If they had better third party support I wouldn't care. I never gave a **** when Nintendo released something that wasn't quite up my alley on the NES and SNES because there was a million other games to play. I didn't have to rely on them to supply almost everything.
but I think a potential third option is to make the playable character so androgynous that the character sounds and looks equally masculine and feminine (as this hero seems to look). So long as the gender is never revealed, we get a character that can truly be everything to everyone while still being a tangible human character. Everyone wins.
Reiterating: we can't take photos
