19 Reasons We LOVE Killer Instinct (NOW A VIDEO!)
... in only 55 seconds!
One of the Best Fighting games ever ! :D I'm actually giving e demonstration of all the KI characters ( from SNES game ) in my show called " Game & Watch " :D
This format is amazing. What a nice change!
you know the old saying "don't judge a book by it's cover?", well my reaction is "don't judge a movie/tv show/video game by it's trailer". people will complain about anything, even the fan boys, and it's getting completely ridiculous. especially if the game in question is not even out yet. it's get hard to have conversations with people when they automatically assume that the game is going to suck because it's not they way "YOU" wanted it. that's why pickers can't be choosers. people said we wanted a new KI game. that's what they're giving us. but because the fan boys are so picky, they can't even be satisfied or even remotely happy that the game is coming back and finally being released after 17 years. a lot of franchises suffer from being exactly the same because they get stale after a while. it took Microsoft this long to answer the gamer's request. look folks, if you're going to expect the same exact game that was released in 1994, then you better start getting used to being disappointed, a lot. and if you're not going to be at least happy that we were lucky enough to get to see KI return in the first place, then no one will ever be satisfied with any game that will ever be released on any game console from this point on. because it's not the game that "you" wanted. you can't please everybody.
well, people wanted a new KI game for 17 years. the same old saying still applies today : careful what you wish for. I think it's a great looking game with the right kind of people but just being released on the wrong kind of game console. the reaction from what I've seen has been positive. the #1 thing most reasonable people tend to agree on is that the new KI game is great, but the new Xbox One system sucks. a sf rip off? where did you think KI came from in the first place? it's the offspring of sf & mk. people complained about that game even back then. instead of spreading a lot of this negative hate, try to at least have a small amount of optimism. the naysayers and haters said KI would never come back even before the e3 event. now it went from "it will never comer back" to "it's going to suck". when did the criticism shift so dramatically fast in the past 3 months? I don't understand where this negative reactions come from when most people haven't even played the game yet. if you haven't even played the game, then what makes you think it will automatically suck? kind of goes against the complaint if you haven't played the game yet, doesn't it? but listen, this kind of conversation and hate for something that's not even remotely out yet is getting way too overwhelming and it goes to ridiculous lengths. so calm down, weight until November, play the game, and then you can spread the hate as much as you want. until you actually play the game, and the game does in deed suck or just flat out doesn't work, then and only then do you folks get the right to complain.
true, but at least we get some brand new characters. more importantly, at least we were lucky enough to see KI return in the first place. I'd say be thankful that we at least get a brand new KI game and the original KI arcade game for the live arcade. trust me, if we had to wait even more, we would still be angry about it. so now that we finally got the game, what more do you folks have to complain about?if you guys like KI so much, here's my suggestion, just support the game, not the system. if you have to buy an Xbox One just for that one game, then go for it. Marvel Vs Capcom 3 sure had it's fair share of problems, it did fine in the long run. i'm sure there are people who hate SF IV and MK 2011, gamers will complain about any game ever made even if they complain about design changes (looking at you sonic fan boys). that's why I tend to separate the fan boys from the devoted fans. in either case, I'm glad to see KI return instead of being continued to be left in the past, and shamefully forgotten by the people who made it.
this may or may not be true, but maybe it's just not your kind of game. each game, movie, tv show, cartoon, anime, or comic book series can be made for everybody or for a specific group of people. some people may not like Halo, other people does. same reason here. we like Killer Instinct, but you don't. and that's ok. you don't have to like it, but a lot of people do. not every game catches everybody's interests. that's why there is no such thing as a 100% bad/good form of media because everybody's tastes tends to be different. many people can like Zelda but not like Metroid, or like Metroid but hate Zelda. it doesn't mean that the game is bad, it's just lack of interest. which is perfectly normal. I'm sure there is a lot of people on this very website that loves one game that a lot of other people on this site tends to hate.
it's an experience kind of thing. plus, consider the fact that it took 17 years to finally get this game to be released, and you've got one truly devoted fan base. same question can be said about any franchise. "why do they like Halo so much?" "why do they like Mortal Kombat so much?" if it wasn't popular, people wouldn't play it. I think the best answer I can give why so many people like Killer Instinct is because it's unique. the characters are unique and not boring in any single way possible. plus, Killer Instinct wasn't a Mortal Kombat clone or a Street Fighter rip off. KI is more or less the offspring of both SF & MK. plus, what separates KI from the rest of the other fighting games beyond the music, the game mechanics, and the voice announcer, was that it was safe from the over exposure that street fighter and mortal kombat suffered from during the late 90's. KI, in my opinion, was the perfect fighting game of the 90's. a time capsule where video games were once hard core and truly bad ass. now a days, it's nothing more but a cheap gimmick. back then, games were more than just games. if you want more proof, check out videos based on how they used to be promoted like Star Fox for SNES, SMW 2 Yoshi's Island, those old Funcoland commercials, this was the golden age. if you want a better explination, Killer Instinct was one of those kind of games that were way ahead of it's time. released in the same year as DKC, and compare it to Star Fox released a year earlier, and you'll know what I mean.

I never understood why people liked Killer Instinct so much... boring characters, boring designs, and a ridiculously easy combo system created for people who couldn't do combos in other fighting games. Capcom and SNK made waaaay better games than this one.
to be honest, it's the fans that should be celebrating. they had to wait this long just for a new game to come out. but hey, it took even longer for Kid Icarus to come back, and it turned out alright. Tron took 20 years for a sequel to come out, and it did pretty well. Killer Instinct is just one of those games that the fans fought hard for to bring back from obscurity. all those naysayers said it will never happen. they said it will never come out. well, proved them wrong. didn't it? now, we have people switching from "it will never happen" to "it's going to suck". I guess gamer's will never be truly satisfied.
well, in my opinion it's better to have something than nothing. would you rather go back to having the fans request it for another 5 years? we asked for it, now we got it. remember that old saying folks : careful what you wish for.
then I would pay less to play less, that's my logic :p
I think that's kinda dumb as well, but I think I heard the game itself will only be 20$ If that means anything to you.
It's not KI3 as it is more just "Killer Instinct: The Reboot"
This makes me miss Evil Craig.
I can't wait for you guys to do Reasons We love/hate KI3
just got the word out that there will be only 8 characters in the new KI, with probably a few more as DLC later...I died a little inside
Slideshow is boring, keep the video format!
I much prefer the video format. I also very much disliked the slideshow format.
