Justin shares his thoughts on how the game is doing 17 months later.

It seemed like I couldn't go anywhere without running into people, often large groups of them, playing the game.

Blink and you'll miss the chance to play Splatoon 2's new mode, as it's available less than half of the time.

Well that was a fun weekend of Splatoon 2. I got some Turf Wars in, dabbled in Ranked, and fell deeper in love with Salmon Run, the brand new horde-style mode.
