Wait, are the new Amiibo out? I don't think they are, are they? I checked and I couldn't find them or any evidence of them anywhere.
I made a PADHerder. It's probably out of date though.

Well, I saw pictures of them, but it might be a while until they actually come out. Still want to get them, though.

Alright, I 100% cleared Octo Expansion. It is great, play it. The soundtrack is incredible, it's challenging but fair, the last boss is super silly and fun (and does not in any way involve DJ Octavio, it's a completely new character and battle), and Off The Hook and Captain Cuttlefish get a lot of fun characterization.

Unless I missed some lore, it seems to be canon that every single one of the 10,007 test subjects that went through the Deepsea Metro trials before you died, which is pretty surprising for Splatoon. And many of them got liquefied by a giant blender, which is unexpectedly grisly. I fully expected a cutscene after the secret boss where all of the test subjects who were killed get reconstituted somehow which would explain why there's a whole army of Octolings in Inkopolis all of the sudden and not just two, but all you get for beating the (extremely difficult) secret boss is a plain accessory.

That's my main complaint about the whole experience honestly, the anticlimactic secret boss.. Small issue though. Everything else is excellent.

Is it necessary to beat the S2 main story to understand the Octo Expansion's plot?

Uh... Unless I'm forgetting something, no. There's only one small fragment from a Sunken Scroll that's especially relevant and you can extrapolate it from the plot of Octo Expansion. Specifically Sunken Scroll 2, which can easily be found online. The plot from the first game is more relevant, but presumably you already know how that goes.

I saw an LP of that and grabbed SS2 at some point, so I'll have to take another look at that. Thanks!

The Marina and Marina's Friend Amiibos are out. They let you cosplay as Marina. Or Marina's Friend if you wanted to do that for some reason. Irony, I guess.

Excellent!

So I finally sat down and tried the Octo Expansion, and...It's hard! @w@;; I'm stuck on the first big Octostamp DX level though...Is there a way to stay on these things without getting thrown off to your death? I don't feel like these things were playtested well enough.

Just gotta go fast from what I remember. But you can always just go do something else and come back later if you get stuck. Maybe try a different weapon.

I got it down after a few tries. Still felt a bit more awkward than it should have been, though.

The final stretch was kinda fun once I figured out you needed to follow the pufferfish.
