Nice triple post.
The Kraken is a decent gun, providing you dont get a lemon. Instead of buying a Kraken, try heading out to a local game, and see if you can rent. It'll give you a much better idea of what this sport is all about, and whether or not you'll want to drop the cash into it.
EDIT: Not sure about your age, but if your not able to go to a local game(Read: Underage) I would suggest waiting a bit, and saving your cash.
