I like the idea of a new IP. The art style is fun and colorful. I just don't know if I honestly want to play it.

I like it, but I have some curiosities about mechanics.

Can you only do a hop-to-ally while you and/or your ally is on friendly territory?

You seem to recover from damage slowly while not taking damage. Does getting shot by your allies, or walking or swimming through your own territory, help "wash" off the damage?

The guy during the Treehouse brought up a good idea. If you have paint on one wall, and the parallel side also has paint, there should be a command to hop through to the other side while scaling that wall. Now you're thinking with ink!

It's certainly creative.

Nintendo: Eff that! We've got transforming squid girls in a paintball apocalypse!

I didn't see this till 10 minutes before shutdown but managed to get 2 games in.

I enjoyed it more than I thought I would, still not sure if I'll buy it though.

This game is out now in Europe and Japan, and will be available in 3 hours in the Americas. Already have it Pre-loaded on my Wii-U so I can be a kid now and a squid now.

I was originally not thinking about getting it, but I caved and decide to check Wal-Mart before I work later today, and lo and behold, I was able to get the game and the Amiibo pack.

The Ars Technica review makes it sound like matchmaking with friends isn't easy to do in this, which sounds like a huge deal breaker

I didn't get the amiibo. Do I miss out on anything good? And no easy matchmaking with friends is a real issue. Like...you're making me regret the purchase.

Yeah there's no real lobby system that isn't random people. You can join your friend's game, but only if there's a spot available
