    So, 5 year anniversaries are of course not a very big deal in video games usually, but still, I was wondering...
    Anyone gonna pop into Splatoon this thursday to celebrate? I'm definitely going to play it again the 28th. I got the game way back when on launch day and also played the global testfire, so I was there at the very start of the franchise. I don't think I can say that for any other franchise, really.

    Honestly, Splatoon feels a lot older than 5 years at this point. It's probably because it's an online game meaning you're spending a lot of time on it. And it probably also has to do with the fact that the Wii U just feels plain old now that the Switch is out.

    It feels a lot shorter than 5 years to me. Honestly crazy to think the franchise is only 5 years old and has had this much of an impact. I've actually been playing a bit of both games lately and it's surprised me how rough Splatoon 1 is in some areas. Guess it just goes to show how fantastic the basic formula is to start with.
