Only the game + squid was stolen. If you ordered the game alone you are fine.

Got my copy from Nintendo today. Already in love with it. Just wish there was more content at launch.

I got my Squidling Amiibo version today as well!!

Was so shocked and it feels really weird to have a game in my posession 2 days before it is supposed to be released!

Is it a decent game then lads?

My copy turned up last Saturday??? Yeah all good so far enjoying the 1p whilst waiting for multiplayer service to come online. Good opertunity to improve skills before online onslaught begins.

Found controls a little weird to start with but after a while it feels quite natural. With the music and the fast pace it feels a bit old skool and I like that.

Looks lame as hell

What's going on peeps?

got an email from game saying the lorry carrying stock from Nintendo to game was robbed and it only affected the inkling version of the game and Nintendo won't be restocking the stolen goods, they offered me boy and girl amiibo plus the standard copy of the game with the splatoon hat thing for £42.99 so I ordered the inkling version of Nintendo store because when you look at it i got the game and hat for £12.99 as the amiibo's are £14.99 each from game

I actually havent had a chance to play it! Lol, mostly because I had front loaded my week workwise as I assumed it be SHIPPED on Friday and turn Saturday or even Monday.

Crazy, feel bad though as I only order the Squid Amiibo one as it was such a good preorder deal, not because I collect Amiibo......and my good friend who OBSESSED by them was one of the unlucky Game people who had theirs stolen!

Even worse for him, he HAD it all preorderes direct from Nintendo but cancelled it due to Game offering the free tshirt.

He was ranting and raving about it until his Mra shut him up by going on Amazon and buying him the whole Amiibo set and game! Lol.

bought from here today, shipped an hour later. paid for first class so with any luck It'll arrive tomorrow or Friday

The game came out in Japan, the servers are up.

I think it was simplygames, I'll check later

If you want to spend Nectar points then try gamecollectionoutlet on ebay - just picked up mine for £16

maybe someone could advise, but im pretty sure offline multiplayer is 1v1 only, with one person on the gamepad and the other on the tv. online multiplayer is 1 person only and you have to use the gamepad so dont expect 4 player split screen a la mario kart with the wife and kids

How much will this be in stores tomorrow, be disappointed to head down to my local shops and see it for £40

Early impressions are poor with regards to the multiplayer aspects.

This is correct. I'm also disappointed they didn't add Controller Pro support and have a pop-up for the map when you want to rocket jump across the map. It would have been nice to have Wiimote support too, seems like an ideal situation for it.

Local multiplayer, even just two player, would have been great but I'm guessing the Wii U couldn't handle it.

There is a limited local multiplayer mode at launch which is 1v1 in a shooting contest (one player using the gamepad/screen and one using pro controller/classic controller with the TV).

Hopefully Nintendo might add to that offering post-launch. Playing this game with the whole family versus another team at Eurogamer was a gaming highpoint for me (particularly as we won), but there's no way I'm buying three more Wii U consoles to recreate it at home ...

the whole, you need the gamepad for the map doesnt really wash with me, you could assign a transparent map to a button so you can get a quick glance at the layout of the map and were you need to go, not hard to do that when respawning or what not. Just another example of nintendo trying to justify the gamepads existence

no points in mine..boo or kirby rainbow....boo...wanted the statues before club nintendo finishes...rip off...

just ordered thanks

3% quidco too if not mentioned before.

Mine turned up this morning from The Game Collection. Love it. Good price.

Mine only cost me 22.99 and all I had to do was get someone to steal a lorry <_<
Was looking forward to that amiibo but I guess at least I've spent less money now

I really want to support Nintendo doing something new but I hate competitive multiplayer games, especially ones where you have to defend an area.

So what is this game, some sort of Call of De Blob?

It's a third person shooter where teams compete to 'paint' the map with their squid ink gun things. When your paint runs out you have to dive into your team's painted areas to top-up. It looks like an interesting take on cover based shooters to me so for £22 or whatever it was I ordered it for a while ago I think it's worth a punt

Ummm.... You still get the game, and can get a 10 pound discount....

Mine arrived today too, played for about an hour so far, and agree it's great fun and plays very well. Just a shame we have to wait for more content

They really should have released it a few months later with more content. It is hurting the reviews and reputation, but most reviews are very positive.

If your on the fence I recommend getting it now anyway, as you should still get loads of fun from it, plus several updates planned over the next few months.

At this price, or less with discount codes its well worth buying even now. I'm loving it!

I wonder if this would've been an issue had they kept it a secret that they were adding new modes and stuff in august until after the game launched.

Received my copy from the game collection, preordered it for £22.95. Played the global testfire sessions and loved it!

It's defo hurting the reviews, but it speaks volumes for the quality of the game that even with all of the faults that could be fixed if they just released it in August with everything, that it's mostly getting 8s across the board. It's pretty obvious they don't really want to release it now, but with a demand for a big summer release in the same way Mario Kart 8 was last year, they decided to put all the content back in in 3 months time.

I'd say that us UK gamers don't have much to complain about, we're getting Splatoon for like 50% cheaper than the US, which makes a change, but it also means the 'lack of content' is less severe.

Got mine today from Game Collection when they had the £2 discount code so cost £22.95. Plus Game Collection are still cheaper by those two pennies! So not the best deal out there.
