What is this, youtube comments?
Scan_Man
There is a couple things that concern me here. One the studio developing this does not lhave a good track record.

Then there is this.

Killer Instinct is a day-one digital-only release on Xbox One, and features -- get this -- one character. Jago is free to play on launch day. Everyone else -- unspecified returning characters as well as original fighters -- will cost money. Price is to-be-determined (of course).
Retehi
I don't know how to feel about this now. :I

Yeah its really easy to tell how the game plays from <30 seconds of preview.

F2P model with character buy-in is an interesting experiment for a fighting game. I'm sure there will be some kind of "the whole enchilada" package where you just unlock everything for like 25-50 bucks or some shit.

I wonder if they'll have "demo" versions of chars so you can test them out before committing.

As for the Dev... Double Helix is responsible for Silent Hill Homecoming, which is one of my most hated games of all time (even though i did S-rank it playing through it 3 times...) so I'm kinda torn too. Front Mission Evolved wasn't that bad though.

Personally, I think the game looks really fun, and from the sound of it, it'll be just fine.



Also, as far as the free-to-play, this is a VERY recent thing that developers are doing, and I can't say I'm much of a fan myself. I rather just buy the game outright. Anyway, Dead Or Alive and Tekken are doing it too:

Dead or Alive
Tekken

Why this is a thing, I don't know. I can see how there's mass potential profit, but I hope this doesn't become the norm.

im saying that it looks like garbage visually.

im one of the biggest KI fans but from what i see thus far id of prefeered if it stayed dead.
Retehi
This was me playing KI the other day at EVO. Me being Sabrewulf obviously:

Round 1: I kick the guys ass.

Round 2: Guy comes back with a vengeance.

Round 3: DOWN TO THE WIRE, GET HYPED! I win.





Seriously, this is an amazingly crafted game. Theres a couple of new stages to show off, Glacius' being utterly awesome looking. I was pensive about hearing who made this game, but they seems to know what they're doing. I'm sold.
Crushinator
There you go, first hand exclusive AT impressions, the ONLY feedback that matters. GET HYPE!
Crushinator
KI's pricing structure was revealed at GamesCom this week.

The "free base game" basically boils down to a demo, you can only play as Jago but you do have access to play online against all other opponents.

Each character is $5 if purchased individually A-la-carte, or you can buy the "Combo Breaker pack" for $20 and have all 8 characters. Seems quite reasonable to me.

There is also the $40 "Ultra Edition" which includes all 8 chars, special skins and accessories, and an emulated version of the original KI arcade game. I wonder if the nintendo branding and stuff will still be in the original KI and MS had to license it? Should be interesting.
Vitamin D
When I get an Xbone, I'll definitely just drop 40 bones on the "Ultra" edition. It makes the most sense to me. Especially with a copy of the OG arcade game thrown in.

So far, the playable characters are Jago, Sabrewulf, Glacius, and Chief Thunder. There's supposed to be 6 at launch, and 8 a bit down the line. I hope the next four include Fulgore, Orchid and Cinder. Maybe TJ Combo? haha.

I've been watching this game quite a bit, and I'm still pretty hype. It looks like a lot of fun, and fan feedback is actively been taken into account with each build. GOOD SHIT.
Crushinator
Yeah IMO they HAVE to include Fulgore and B. Orchid. They are two of the most iconic KI characters. For the other 2, I'd like to see Cinder and Riptor, but I heard a rumor that Spinal was a lock for one of the remaining slots...

It ain't KI without those last 4 in it. Like MK with no Sub Zero. WON'T HAPPEN ON MY WATCH!

But yeah, this is definitely the game I wanna use to break into the competitive scene (assuming enough people get into it themselves)
Retehi






HNNNNNNNNNN-FUCKING-NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNG
Retehi


Middle eastern ninja babe. . God DAMN Sadira is all kinds of badass.

And Orchid, oh god Orchid yes. She still has a 90's vibe to her new design to. Actually looks a LOT how I imagined she'd look like oddly.
Vitamin D
Semi-old news at this point, but still dope haha.



Dat music. Dat Spinal tho. Also, it seems like Fulgore (or Cinder) is the most likely to be the last revealed characters for the first set. NOICE. Also, here's the footage from the stream where she was revealed. Good shit!

Crushinator
It better be fulgore, damnit! Game looks hype as hell, honestly one of the biggest factors in me going Xbone over PS4 at launch.

I really like the regular streams and developer transparency Double Helix has provided leading up to the launch of this game, leagues better than most other next-gen stuff that has basically stayed under wraps.
Vitamin D
Launch trailer. Fulgore. Hype GET. "Only on X Box OOOOOONNNNNNEEEEEE!!!!"



Also here's a look at this game played at high level. Looks so effing fun haha.



Crushinator
Just want to post that this is OFFICIALLY ON THE RECORD SICK. AS. HELL.

Double Helix redeemed, they really nailed it with KI. I hope they follow through with a "Season 2" roster of more characters after Fulgore.
