When Nintendo first announced Splatoon 2 alongside the official release announcement of the Nintendo Switch, one of the most commonly asked questions was whether or not it look as though it was worth of having the number ‘two’ in the title. Was this going to be a full-fledged sequel, or was it going to feel more like an update to the original Wii U title. Fans awaited with bated breath to finally get a chance to play when it was announced that there was going to be the Global Testfire back at the end of March. The demo let Switch owners with new levels to try and the ability to check out the new dual-wielding weapons called the Splat Dualies, and every Nintendo Direct that followed left fans eagerly waiting for a release date announcement. Splatoon 2 was finally released on July 21, 2017 is it the release that fans were clamoring for?

A little behind on the times, I was finally convinced by a friend to pick up Overwatch for my PC. I had been intrigued by the game since it’s release, but I’d lost interest in online multiplayer a while back. The exception being Splatoon, but since the first Call of Duty Black Ops, I had begin to lose interest in online multiplayer. The onslaught of downloadable content and micro-transactions were making it increasingly difficult for games to hold my attention. Like Splatoon, Overwatch gets rid of most of that making it one of the most enjoyable and easy to pick up online shooters I’ve played in a long time. With the Nintendo Switch potentially boasting a more impressive third party line-up, it has the potential to finally be up to par with other home consoles and PC’s when it comes to online multiplayer.
