    @lord_magikarp: You weren't the only one and it doesn't matter. The point of the test was simultaneous connections, not total connections. Cramming as many as possible into one hour was a great way to...

    The demo was free. Everyone in the world who was remotely interested in the game tried to connect at exactly the same time. The real game will NEVER have that kind of traffic, not even on launch day....

    I didn't have the stamina (real life stamina) to grind in the mobile version for monsters and metal monsters and coins, and I didn't want to pay any money, so I hit a wall and never played again. (I ...

    They're going to say that the Digital Event (maybe a better name this year?) will be at noon on the Tuesday of E3, followed by many hours of Treehouse streams, then some sort of roundtable on Wednesd...

    Sell it and move on. If you don't have a PC, save up for a good one. It sounds like you'd love it.

    @juboner: The lag never bothered me, and in multiplayer, everyone deals with the lag, so it doesn't matter. Even with lag, I was always quicker and more accurate than with dual analog.

    @nini200: I understand.Splatoon doesn't require the precision of most shooters. I have a feeling you'll be fine with the controls. At least you're open to giving it a shot with the demo.
