Splatfests

The Queue: #TeamGear all the way

I can’t believe we’re already here again, but it’s SPLATFEST TIME!!!! Or, well, it will be starting tomorrow evening. The question this time? What would you bring with you on a deserted island: Gear, Grub, or Fun?

Naturally, I’m #TeamGear because not only can you use gear to help acquire/make food and fun, it’s also Shiver’s team and Shiver is awesome. So, if you’re so inclined, feel free to tell me what team you’re on this weekend, even if you’re (gasp!) not playing Splatoon 3.

In the meantime, let’s have a Queue, shall we?


The Queue: The glorious return of Splatfests — Rock, Paper, or Scissors?

This weekend is one of those weekends I’ve been looking forward to for so long that it’s hard to believe it’s actually here. I speak, of course, of the return of Splatfests! As I’m sure I’ve mentioned at least once here, this is a brand-new Splatfest format, now featuring THREE sides instead of two (and a slightly different match-up format as a result).

I have no idea how it’ll go, but I’m excited all the same. Also, I’m leaning heavily toward #TeamRock because of Big Man, but I also really like Shiver’s (#TeamPaper) style.

Anyhow, while I think on that, we have a Queue to get to.


The Queue: Slicing with my Splatana

Well, I had a nice intro written all about Splatoon 3, but then the website logged me out and I lost it. So now, you get this pale imitation of an intro.

…Okay, the original wasn’t all that special anyhow. But it did include a nice tie-in to our first question which I’m just gonna dive righ


The Queue: Splathreen

Seriously, how could this Queue NOT be about Splatoon 3’s reveal announcement? And even if it’s not actually called “Splathreen,” I’m still going to call it that for now because I find it hilarious (and also, RIP Spla2n, the title we never got).

Anyhow, I’m very excited about Splatoon 3, even if it is a long way away.

But enough about that. It’s Queue time.


The Queue: Mushrooms? No thanks, I’m a Star

By most estimates, it’s been several years since the last Splatfest. By a calendar’s exactimates, it’s actually just been a little over two months. Whatever your sense of time, it’s, ahem, time for a new Splatfest. This one’s in honor of Mario’s 35th anniversary and pits one power-up against another, much stronger power-up. I will be fighting on the side of Team Superstar. I may even be wearing my IRL Splatfest tee for the occasion!

However, that will all have to wait for tomorrow. Right now, it’s Queue time.


The Queue: Harrumph! >:(

Look, I said I’d have fun no matter who won this year’s Splatoween Splatfest — and I did! — but I’m still a bit salty that, despite its pretty dominant lead in popularity, Team Trick lost once again. Also, Pearl and Marina swapping their black/white outfits was simple but fantastic and I am all about goth Pearl. Anyhow, those are the only results we’ll be discussing today.

Everything else? It’s all coming up Queue.


The Queue: Trick or Treat?

That’s right, friendos, it’s Spooky Splatfest Season, and this weekend’s extra-long Splatfest is all about tricking. Or treating. It depends on which side you choose. This time — just like I did two years ago — I’m going with Team Trick. If we lose again, I’m gonna be so Yogg-dang peeved.

Okay, so I won’t be all that mad. Splatfests are fun, and these surprise bonus ones after the “final” Splatfest are always a… um… treat. Anyhow, let’s Queue as we think about our choices.


The Queue: Order vs. Chaos is the the choice in the final Splatfest, and I’m sad no matter what side wins

As I assume you are all aware, the Splatoon 2 Splatfests are something of an interest of mine. I may not always partake equally, but I still pay attention to a given month’s and choose a specific side which I root for. Which makes it a little sad in saying that tonight/this weekend’s (extended) Splatfest is the final official one planned for Splatoon 2.

This time around, the theme is Order vs. Chaos. As you’ve likely surmised, I’m going to be playing for Team Chaos. That said, I’m still sad to see these go. I’m confident they’ll return in Nintendo’s next iteration of the series, but it’s still an ending. And I’ve never been great with endings.

But anyhow. Let’s Queue.


The Queue: Unicorns vs. Narwhals is not a Two Bosses Enter

Okay, I know last week I yelled at y’all for asking nothing but Two Bosses Enter questions, but I swear asking you to pick between Narwhals and Unicorns is totally different. I mean, Narwhals already won (rightfully so), which makes it more of a statement of victor. But still. It’s not the same.

Also speaking of Splatfests… next month’s is the very last Splatfest of Splatoon 2. It’s Chaos vs. Order, so you obviously know what I’m voting for, but it still makes me very sad. It’s going to be the end of an era, y’all.

On that sad note, let’s Queue.
