Enjoying the Specials in Salmon Run [22-20-17, 21/554]

Saturday, January 20th, 2018

I think going the long way to the Steelhead will be quicker. It isn't, but I manage to nab a Golden Egg like I deserved it. The Drizzler is easier, and the second Steelhead takes priority over the Steel Eel, but I overlook a Cohock, and get a pan to ...

Autobombs and Ink Storms in Splat Zones [14(3)-3, Custom Splattershot Jr]

Saturday, January 20th, 2018

I'm wondering where that E-litre 4K will set up, and hit the flank to lob an opportunistic Robot Chicken her way. It doesn't find anything, but moving up to the Splat Zones level finds the telltale shot of ink, and I try to combine Ink Storm and Robot Chicken to ...

What difficult third wave, in Salmon Run [16-14-21, 12/510]

Friday, January 19th, 2018

Bah, that's a poor throw on the Flyfish, particularly as my aiming arc showed the Splat Bomb would fall short. Still, it's the first boss in the first wave, we will cope. Then again, the Flyfish is splatted anyway, and I honestly don't know how. All bombs fell out of ...

Shown no mercy in Splat Zones [13(6)-5, Custom Splattershot Jr]

Friday, January 19th, 2018

Uh-oh, our Rapid Blaster isn't moving. Hopefully it's just temporary, and there's not much to be done but press on. Splatting the Inkjet with my Ink Storm keeps my spirits up early, and although I avoid a Splashdown I run in to the inkling that comes out of it. Heading ...

Profreshional Salmon Run [26-20-26, 19/569]

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

Low tide seems like an easy start to this Salmon Run, and our squidmate teasing Maws back to the basket makes it easier. A lone Flyfish is only awkward because of the salmonids in front of it, and my first throw just misses. Our second attempt shows that Flyfish who's ...

Losing our grip on the Splat Zones [20(10)-6, Custom Splattershot Jr]

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

My Robot Chicken does me proud to start the battle, as I almost get stuck between two inklings. Instead, I get an Ink Storm out of it. I'm also starting out quite sensibly, being mobile, not chasing needless splats, and inking anything I can. Keeping the Robot Chickens flying when ...

Lone survivor in Salmon Run [21-26-19, 15/322]

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

Nice first bomb at the Flyfish, whilst wading through green muck! There's not that much pressure on, though, and we're waiting for the bosses to appear. I bet I'll miss this time by the middle of the third wave. The Steel Eels are nice and easy to take care of ...

Almost the comeback we deserve in Tower Control [16(4)-7, Custom Splattershot Jr]

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

A Robot Chicken seems like just the right thing to lob over the Tower at the start of a battle, more so than a mere Suction Bomb. Or any time, anywhere, really. I like them. A bit of flanking gets me a splat too, and an Ink Storm solidifies our ...

Custom fun in Tower Control [12(5)-9, Custom Splattershot Jr]

Monday, January 15th, 2018

I like the Splattershot Jr, and now the Custom version is here, with Robot Chickens and a stormier Ink Storm. That sounds like a great combination to me, both sub and Special forcing inklings to move, perhaps where they don't want to, allowing for more nuanced battling over the standard ...

Taking back the Splat Zones [14(3)-6, Tri-slosher]

Monday, January 15th, 2018

Activating the ink rail as a distraction clearly doesn't fool that Octobrush, and I bet that's not the last I'll see of him. I try to be more pragmatic on my return, hoping to neutralise the Splat Zones and dropping down only when there's clear opportunity. But, as happens curiously ...
