if the dlc for this game is even close to as good as octo expansion was this will probably be my favorite game ever. but for now I have to dock points because its not finished (and honestly, hasn't even started)
what makes splatoon so good, in my opinion, is how it evolves with time. new weapons, new gear, new stages, things are always changing. in particular, the weekly weapon drops of the first two games kept me coming back. with no sign of that at the moment, this game feels like it could be extremely easy to burn out on.
if all we get is one splatfest a month and a big run every once in a while in between 3 month intervals, I can see myself dropping the game faster than any other splatoon. but we aren't even a month in yet, so I'll remain optimistic. I'm hoping I'm proved wrong, and I keep finding reasons to come back to splatoon 3. it has the potential to be the best, but a lot of things aren't looking so good.
