Go from kid to squid in Animal Crossing ⊟ 

No need to spend hella bucks shipping King of Games’ Splatoon shirts from Japan when you can import them for free in Animal Crossing, thanks to designs posted by Lord Not (there are also black and white tee versions).

Don’t forget about Splatoon’s Global Testfire demo running today from 6PM to 7PM ET (or 3PM to 4PM PT) – grab it from the Wii U eShop now!

What We Want From Animal Crossing Wii U

  1. Bigger and better towns.
  2. Bring back classic games.
  3. Improved online capabilities.
    • One thing he touches on is the idea of being able to sell designs. I feel like content creation could be such a much bigger player in a series like Animal Crossing. For example, while i don’t expect Nintendo to ever [due to licensing] allow us to exchange Bells for IRL local currency, Second Life is a title that does a great deal of encouraging content creators to make in-game and sell their stuff.)
  4. More public works projects.
  5. Vacation mode.

Found this on Reddit. There are some great ideas touched on in this video, and while it doesn’t really hit on nearly half of the millions of ideas we as a fandom have for the series, it’s still a great watch. I do hope that E3/Nintendo Direct will hint to something. At the very least, not jerk our chain around like they did with AC:NL for so long.

YES. The Splatoon Servers are down. Stop bitching about it!

That’s why it is called a Testfire, so it won’t happen in the full game.

Yes. It sucks

No. Nintendo doesn’t need to do another one.

No. Nintendo doesn’t owe you anything.

No. You whiny people can’t be mad at Nintendo. You are playing an unfinished product. This was expected to happen.

Thanks, and have a good day!


*Forgives Nintendo for that 1 hour delay during the Testfire*

Listen to this cheesy yet addicting full version of Splat The World. (hope this song makes it in the game)


Splatoon’s release is just around the corner, as it releases on the 29th. Many press have early review copies (including our friends over at Gamnesia, who are answering questions about the game). New discoveries are being made every day in the game and finally a sweet Zelda Easter Egg has been discovered. Except… it’s an Easter Egg that actually fits very well in Splatoon, especially when you consider in tandem with another Easter Egg from the Mario series.

An 8-Bit Octorok image can be found on the multiplayer map Urchin Underpass. Along with this image is one of a Blooper from Super Mario Bros. Why do these two fit with the game itself? Well, the inklings are squid like creatures, similar to the Bloopers, while their natural enemies are very similar to octopuses, just like the Octorok. There are sure to be many more Easter Eggs discovered as more of the game is played and future DLC is released.
