Nintendo Switch Games: the Good, the Bad, and the Weird

We played a bunch of the Switch's games. Here are the ones that stood out


Splatoon 2

Splatoon 2 was one of the most straightforward sequels at the event. It seems to exist primarily to give the Splatoon faithful the opportunity to play their wacky third-person shooter on the Switch. Splatoon 2 takes place two years after the events of the first game (identifiable by the default girl character’s slightly longer hair, according to a Nintendo staffer) but all of the trappings are the same. We were dumped into a game of Turf Wars, and someone immediately iced me with a paint roller. The only immediately noticeable addition was a dual pistol loadout that lets your character do combat rolls, which is about as adorable as it is deadly.
