BREAKING NEWS! A Squid Research Lab special report:
Nintendo Switch owners will soon be able to participate in a special Splatoon 2 preview. A special demo version of Splatoon 2 will be available for download on Nintendo Switch and will allow players to battle against opponents around the world in the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire event. It’s a way for everyone to investigate the latest in cephalopod warfare months before the game launches!
The Splatoon 2 Global Testfire will give Nintendo Switch owners six chances to play with other owners worldwide during the three-day event. The timing of the event is as follows:
Who’s playing those 4 a.m. Pacific Time time slots, anyway? They’re preferable to players overseas, or perhaps North American early birds (or night owls?)
All indications are that the content for the Global Testfire will allow players to test four different main weapons, including the new Splat Dualies, as well as remixed versions of the iconic Splat Roller and Splat Charger. Extraordinary!
We look forward to sharing additional findings soon, such as when the demo will be available for download in Nintendo eShop.
Kara sighed as she looked out across the cafe she was currently seated at. Of course she hadn’t expected Lena to up and cancelled her meetings for the day, but she also hadn’t banked on the boredom that came with being alone in a foreign country. She could take some photos for James, she could finish her coffee (which was spectacular)… She could update her instagram, and brag to Alex and Maggie that she was sipping coffee in a Roman piazza.
She glanced down at the text that had arrived from Lena, and frowned. “Really?”
PUBLIC SQUID ANNOUNCEMENT! Splatoon 2 arrives this summer, but we’re offering an early chance to get your feet wet in the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire. This global event will only be active during a few short time periods between 3/24 and 3/26, but you can download it from Nintendo eShop now to get prepared. http://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/splatoon-2-switch#game-overview
Event times (You can only play during these time periods) • 3/24 (Fri) Noon – 12:59 p.m. PT • 3/24 (Fri) 8:00 p.m. - 8:59 p.m. PT • 3/25 (Sat) 4:00 a.m. – 4:59 a.m. PT • 3/25 (Sat) Noon – 12:59 p.m. PT • 3/25 (Sat) 8:00 p.m. - 8:59 p.m. PT • 3/26 (Sun) 4:00 a.m. – 4:59 a.m. PT
It’s been 25 years since the heroic pink puff made his debut, so we’re celebrating with a sale on Kirby games for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS family of systems. The included games are a great way to play through Kirby’s history, from his very first appearance in the Kirby’s Dream Land game all the way to last year’s Kirby: Planet Robobot. Make sure to check the sale out before it ends at 8:59am PT on Aug. 8.
The next Splatfest is coming soon, and the theme is a clash of condiments: Mayonnaise vs. Ketchup.
The Splatfest event times are: 8/4 (Fri) 9:00 p.m. PT – 8/5 (Sat) 9:00 p.m. PT
As a reminder, at the end of the event, the winning side will be determined by Popularity, Solo Win percentage, and Team Win percentage. And this Splatfest theme will be shared globally, though results will be tallied and shared region by region.
Don’t forget you can team up with friends in Splatfest, though Team Mode is a little different from what you may be used to. This mode requires four players (must be friends with someone from the same team who is in the Lobby) to join a private lobby before being matched up against another team of four.
But will players choose mayo or ketchup? Only you can decide! And if you can’t wait to show your support, you can go into the game later tonight to pick your team and/or submit some mayo or ketchup centric drawings. We do enjoy tuna fish sandwiches and potato salad here in the lab, but we’d also be lying if we said we didn’t have a few bottles of spicy ketchup in the fridge. Decisions, decisions..
Remember the first time we saw this scene, heard the sound of the skates, and the click of the skates stopping on the ice rink?

Summary: After a patient urgently pleads you to go and help a friend of his, you naively agree to it. Little did you know, that you would get more than what you agreed to, when he leads you to a brothel, to help a dangerous prostitute named Jeon Jungkook.
Pairing: Jungkook x Reader (ft. Jin, but not romantically)
Word count: 6.5k
Genre: Smut (M), angst, mafia!au, prostitution!au
A/N:This is a dark and filthy story! Graphic descriptions of sex (oral, penetration, etc), heavy dom/sub undertones, drug use, vulgar language use… This is a mature read! You have been warned!
“Again? Didn’t we
already talk about this?” your mother scolded with a sigh, as you two entered
your small apartment.
She had gotten a call
from work at the rehab centre, that you had gotten into another fight with the
kids at your school. And this became an alarming concern to her since this was
the third time this month that you had fought with others.
“I didn’t mean too…”
the nine-year-old you sniffled, as you shyed away from your mother’s harsh
“Y/n this is the third
time this month that your school has called me!” your mother exclaimed tiredly
from the kitchen, getting ready to prepare dinner for the two of you.
“I’m sorry,” you
whispered from your spot on the sofa, trying to withhold your tears. You knew
your mother hated when you got into fights – you didn’t even like it either,
but the kids always picked on you. You just wanted them to stop…
“You said you were
sorry last time.”
“I know…” you mumbled
“Then why do you keep
fighting?” she frustrated. “No matter what those kids say, you don’t put your
hands on them.”
“But they wouldn’t
“Then tell the
“They hit me first,”
you interrupted. This caused your mother to pause in the middle of her
“Why?” she asked in
“They just wouldn’t
stop saying those horrible things, even though I begged them…” you said as your tears started to fall.
Summary: Jungkook is your brother’s annoying best friend. You can’t stand him but he just can’t resist teasing you. How far will he actually go?
Warnings: slight language
“Thanks for the ride Tae,” you said, giving his arm a squeeze before sliding out of the car.
You walked up your drive and unlocked the door, giving Taehyung a wave before you slipped inside. He always waited until you were in the house to drive away which never failed to make you smile. He was sweet, you had to admit.
