So for anyone who answered my question in the comments a week or so ago, I did in fact buy Splatoon (for all of you advocating it.) I was still really on the fence about it until I was with the kids at the store a few days back. While I was looking at the movies, they were drooling over the game cabinet and giving their opinions on everything they saw. I walked over and pointed at Splatoon, which was several levels above their eyeline.
“And what about this one?” dad inquires.
My daughter looks up and goes “I LOVE THAT GAME! I’ve never played it, but I LOVE IT!”

So obviously I bought it the next day. I wouldn’t have even asked without your input. So well played readers… well played…
