    • I finally got around to finishing Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn and I have to say I had a lot of fun with it. I don't mind the crude, verging on racist, humor and the play style is reminiscent of early 90s beat 'em ups. There's even a move where you hit A to land a size 22 kick that launches the enemy straight into the screen just like TMNT IV: Turtles in Time. Shaq Fu never takes itself seriously, poking fun at crowd funding and the game itself. All of the old beat 'em up tropes are present and accounted for; endless enemies, random things in the background and foreground to smash, the odd object you can use as a weapon until it breaks, etc. At $20 USD in the eshop I think that the price is a bit steep for the amount of game time you'll get from it, if you play it on easy you can walk through this game in one sitting and I don't see much replay value in it. Harder difficulties does make it a longer process though. There is a DLC pack called "Barack Fu"  that opens up a new story line where you play as President Obama, the humor continues as one of "Dirty Barry's" moves lets you call in a "Peace Prize" drone strike. Nintendo's eShop says it released on June 5, but I can't seem to find it. The game's website says that physical copies come with a code to download a "bonus game" later this month. I haven't seen what that game is yet but I would suspect that it is the DLC so if you really want to fight as Barack Obama the physical version might save you a bit of money. Overall I give Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn a solid 5 out of 7 Size 22 Reebok Pumps. Pick it up if you find it on sale, and you enjoy old school beat 'em ups (think TMNT IV style with some off color humor and a stupid plot).

How will Splatoon 2 be affected by Nintendo's online service changes?

Recommended Posts

If anyone here remembers, Nintendo is making it so that you have to pay for online services effective this Fall. Splatoon 2 is one of the May games that Will be affected by the changes. Many Switch owners won't give in too paying for online services unless something good comes out of it. Well, Producer Hisashi Nogami ensures that he will keep expanding the Splatoon 2 experience with Nintendo's update to online services.


According to Polygon, Nogami plans to use these service changes to supply multiple updates to the game to keep it fun! 'We don’t think it will have no influence,' Nogami said. 'We imagine it will have some sort of influence or effect by the addition of Nintendo Switch Online. [but] we want to use Nintendo Switch Online’s addition as a way to redouble our commitment to the community and reaffirm for them that we’re going to support this game more and more.' Both Splatoon and Splatoon 2 have very large fan base' and all Nogami wants is to ensure families can keep enjoying Splatoon, while acknowledging that he has to make paid services worth while.

Splatoon 2 is currently $59.99 but after paid services take effect it will become $59.99 plus however long you want to keep splatting your friends.


For Nogami, the pending Nintendo Switch Online fees are only encouraging the team to work harder on providing a fair experience for all online players.


'It’s not to say that there’s no possibility that we’ll ever consider releasing some paid premium multiplayer content,' he explained, which would add another barrier of entry to Splatoon fans. 'The main thing we want to maintain is this even playing field for players.'


What do you think about the online service payments?

I don't think Splatoon would be the only game to be severely hurt by this online service paywall. Future flagship games like Smash Ultimate will most likely become obsolete if Nintendo doesn't revoke the online service payment system. A lot of online games that Nintendo will release to the future might just die out because of their decision. I just don't understand why Nintendo would do this.
