I dunno. All of those things sound pretty relatable.

So, Splatoon 2 supports voice chat without any stupid apps - if you're playing over a LAN

Also, why the f does it need to be wired? That makes no sense.

It is a little known fact that actually all the LAN-enabled GameCube games also supported app-free voice chat! When you linked 4 cubes together with LAN modems to 4 different TVs and played 16 controller Mario Kart Double Dash it came with a hands-free method of still being able to shout at everyone on the network!

On rare occassions I even got it to work in single-console local splitscreen, it was just amazing to talk to someone in the same room as yourself without the need for an app.
But then wavebirds came and people started playing Crystal Chronicles from across the street with telescopes, so you had to buy the megaphone adaptor or communicate through smoke signals, smh. :'(

Yeah, that's what makes this even more bizarre. Why only allow actual voice chat (with a head set) in the one mode where you are all but guaranteed to be in the same room anyway?

This is the same Nintendo that included local-only video chat in one of the DS Pokémon games. They make some odd choices sometimes.

It's their weird quality standards. The system can probably handle voice chat very well in LAN mode but if it is over the internet then the quality may dip or become spotty and they'd rather not have gamers experience that lower quality from them so they came up with a complicated method that they think best maintains a level of quality they couldn't achieve in the standard method. This way, you do not see their shame in failing to deliver a top-quality experience in the traditional method. It's very Japanese.

I wonder if the in-game voicechat will be part of the paid service. Lame, but at least it would be coming.

Looks like the next NA Splatfest is the age-old debate of Chicken vs Egg.

My friends and I have decided on Team Egg, but we're not sure if all of us can make it at the same time. Is there anyone here who would like to try joining our Team Egg team? We don't really care about winning, just having fun, so anyone is welcome.

I dunno.  How are we defining "egg" here?  Naturally, eggs existed before chickens did, so we have to be talking about chicken eggs.  But, what constitutes a "chicken egg"?  Is is an egg laid by a chicken? or an egg that will eventually hatch and grow into a chicken?

That music video intro was crazy. I hope this adds some depth to the single player.

I'll be on & off throughout the event. This is my first Splatfest since the final in the original so it should be interesting.

When is the Splatfest?  My work schedule just loosened a bit, so I think I might have time for it.

Can someone explain to me what is up with all the gay posts in Inkopolis lately? Is this a new meme I'm not getting? 'Cause according to Google, Gay Pride month isn't until June.

I guess Squids have a right to express their sexuality via grafitti speech bubbles just as much as any other race. No need to get upset.

The Splatoon 2 plaza seems to go through various phases like that. I don't think it's based on any currently popular outside meme, but I have no idea.

I remember the meme about the inklings being gender-fluid last summer.  Splatoon is a very pro-LGBT game.  Or at least the players are.
