    Side Order sounds very roguelike-y.

    it pretty much is a roguelike mode; main thing I like is you can choose difficulty on every level, there's permanent upgrades to unlock, and also you can apparently use reward currency to spend on stuff for the main game

    Side Order is out.

    It's really good, I think.

    You can get really overpowered with the right color chip drops, and you've got incentives to go to a bunch of different weapons on subsequent runs.

    Also, I really enjoyed the story, and there's more to uncover after the main story is done.

    And while allegedly there are people out there who got a 30F clear on their first or second try... the game has some real YASD potential. Like if you don't take the "Player" category hacks, allowing any two enemies that aren't the smallfry equivalent to hit you is probably death. So it's plenty difficult.

    And the game allows you to disable upgrades, plus it has a reward system that gets you multiplied rewards for having upgrades turned off. So you can tailor it to be harder if you want.

    I just like how Marina has Pearl as her desktop wallpaper. Not very subtle there Nintendo…

    I got to 30F on my first run, using the brella, but failed to beat the boss.

    Much like in multiplayer, I don’t know how to use the brellla effectively.

    For most Brellas (the ones that aren't the Tenta Brella, basically), the canopy is a red herring and you shouldn't give it too much mind. The fact that you can launch the canopy is sold as a feature, but in practice it acts as a second layer of limitation on being able to defend yourself-- not only does holding the canopy open drain ink, but eventually it just flies away on its own. You don't get much damage from the canopy attack, either, so it's an extremely inefficient use of ink. For the vast majority of the time, you want to be treating the Brella as just a pump-action shotgun: get as close as necessary to achieve your optimal damage per shot, and shoot repeatedly.

    I've seen expert Brella users read the opponent's shot rhythm to make sure they're flashing the canopy open just before the opponent's shot lands, but that's real top-end stuff and especially for the PvE I think you don't want to be trying to soak enemy attacks anyway.

    I think the launch is best used as an inking tool and escape route. I’m not sure if the impact damage up chips boost the launched canopy yet but if they do, enough of them could make it a formidable offensive option too since it pierces and most of the generic mooks can be baited into lining up for you easily enough.

    Thank you! Playing this way got me a tower clear with Marina's palette.

    Damnit. Had a Side Order run with the Brush setup where four of the first five chips I got were Mobile Special Charge (charge special meter by moving around) chips. Absolutely steamrolled the first 29 floors. Then my kids wanted to watch me fight the final boss and I died because I only had one life and he can nuke you even when you’re stamping things.

    Oh man, brush with mobile special charge and mobile ink refill would be incredible, wouldn’t it?

    First attempt through with the Bowcaster palette. Cleared the whole bloody thing.

    I hate the Bow, so much.

    Side Order gets real stupid if you work at it.

    https://youtu.be/4DUekEQFpOk
    Five chips of Homing Shot (100% shot homing), five chips of Quick Charge (5% normal time), and five chips of Main Range Up (200% normal range) plus enough Main Ink Saver and Splat Ink Recovery means you just pull the trigger and stuff dies as many times as you want.

    I didn't even realize something that ridiculous was possible. I'm guessing it takes a lot of rerolls to get a targeted build like that.

    I haven't played that much Side Order, but I did get my first clear. I did die like 8 times on the final boss, so good thing I had continues.

    It's easier than it seems for the Charger, since both components of that preposterous setup are in its tone bias (which you can amplify with hacks). But yeah, it sure helps to have reroll costs (both for floors and vending machines) minimized through hacks to pull it off.

    Did they even hit the floor after dropping from the cage?

    Decided to try something silly and only get chips from the Lucky tree. Managed to get 30 before clearing the tower, Tone Chain bonuses get pretty nuts at that level, leading to a total PRLZ gain of about 800. The terror I felt when I looked at one of those “Danger” tags and wondered if would be a No Item Drops level was pretty palpable though.

    Fortunately you can turn around and exit the challenge if you think you can't handle it, but it costs the equivalent amount of Membucks as the reward.

    Yes, but since I was absolutely pillaging vending machines and using the floor reset pretty liberally to get all Yellows, membucks were scarce.

    So I finally got every weapon kit from Sheldon; does anyone know if third kits are going to be a thing or can I freely burn spare licenses on the vending machine?

    No confirmation yet, I far I know. Speculation is split since while the previous 2 games had them, 3's current catalogue has very "final" feel to it with the "Thanks" "For Playing" title reward and the end page of 'lings giving a farewell.

    Looks like there's one final Splatfest coming.

    There was data for at least two more available, and the idols had costumes for those. This is the Grand Festival, not FinalFes.

    That looks amazing. Seems like we get individual tents for the three acts then a big central stage for the supergroup. I’m guessing that the separate tents are the first half of the festival and the main stage is the second half.
    And the rest itself is a battle of the bands; Squid Sisters vs. Off the Hook vs. Deep Cut - is this going to somehow determine who the “face” band is for S4?

    Finally cleared a run in Side Order. Was having a tough time with higher-difficulty floors, looked for some advice online and tried investing in drone upgrades and builds. Won with Marina's palette and chips focusing on Drone Inkstrike and the drone gauge, although the No Brella Launch chip felt really useful too.
