GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - Ask your Splatoon questions!

Man, I can't wait for this mess to be all over. Desperately want to share details with you, but I can't right now. I promise, it's a rage-inducing situation. Working through it because you guys are worth it. This has probably been the most trying month I've ever had with GoNintendo, but we must power through. See you in a few, short hours.

The big day has come and gone. The internet at large has given birth to a flurry of Splatoon reviews. Seems like the game is fairing pretty well across the board! Nice to see the title so warmly welcomed. I'm also sure you can't wait to do the same with the game once it actually releases! While that's just a few days off, we can still kill some time for you guys and gals.

Our review clocked in at just under 4000 words. We certainly don't take a quantity over quality approach in our reviews, but I wanted to make sure I detailed all I could of my experience! Hopefully you enjoyed the review and it answered a lot of your questions. If you missed out on reading the review when we posted it earlier today, you can have a look right here. Just be prepared to do a bit of reading!

With my review out of the way, I'm sure there are some other questions out there. I figured I would open up the floor to you guys and see what you wanted to know. I'll answer everything I possibly can about the experience. You can ask questions about game mechanics, personal opinion or anything else inbetween. Just leave a comment on this post or reply to the corresponding tweet and I'll skim through and get everything answered by launch day.

So go ahead and ask away! I'll do my best to give you the info you're looking for. I just want to put your mind at ease before the game launches. That way you can better decide if the game is for you!

Humble Bundle team discusses region locking on the Humble Nindie Bundle

Nintendo already told us that they wanted to include all regions in their Humble Nindie Bundle, but they couldn't make it happen this time around. Now the gang that actually runs the Humble Bundle project have taken to their blog to discuss the situation.

We recently launched the Humble Nindie Bundle, a digital bundle for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U systems. For many of you, the bundle is region-locked, and we apologize if the games are unavailable in your country.

One of the reasons we launched the first Humble Bundle was to bring indie games to more people. We agree that region-locking is not ideal. But without it, we may not have had this opportunity to promote these great indie games on dedicated video game platforms.

Our goal is to make games as universally accessible as can be. That’s why, while we strive to sell DRM-free games when possible, we also explore services like Steam, Origin, uPlay, and now the Nintendo eShop. These services allow us to offer more games at pay-what-you-want prices while raising more money for charity and reaching more gamers.

Your feedback helps us craft our bundles, so we thank you for your input and your continued support! We will continue to strive to be as inclusive as possible to all platforms, regions, and players in the future.

Some retailers breaking Splatoon street date

We're OH so close to Splatoon releasing to the masses, and it seems some retailers are just too excited to stick to the game's street date. We've heard reports of the game being sold early in both North America and Europe. This is one of those instances where you'll have to hit up your local game retailer, cross your fingers and hope for the best! Remember, you won't have any luck at GameStop. Try out locations like Best Buy, Walmart and other retailers that aren't game specialists.
