He looks pretty sick. I was wondering if they might have some dead flesh rotting on him... I think I'm glad they didn't take that route.

Now it's either Fulgore or Cinder coming next... I'm GUESSING it's going to be Cinder. Saving Fulgore to start Season 2 with a boom might be in their best interest.

MajinTenshinhan said on October 31, 2013 at 2:08 p.m.

Oh hey, my old main. Not that I ever really played Killer Instinct, but ... The very few times I did, this was my dude.

#11
TwoCoins said on October 31, 2013 at 2:09 p.m.

Why no reveal Fulgore? Aint he a main character pair with Jago?...like Ryu/Ken or Scorpion and Sub-Zero

#12
TrueGamingGuru said on October 31, 2013 at 2:10 p.m.

The disc version will very likely be after the Season Finale is finished for digital, once the Seasons severed its purpose we could get a disc version in the future.

On Topic: Part of Spinal looks really cool.

#13
Oroku_Saki said on October 31, 2013 at 2:14 p.m.

Main character to me for Killer Instinct would be Orchid, then Jago and everyone else.
Everyone is a main character. I'd really like to see everyone and quite a number of new characters as well.
Hoping to see Cona....Tusk/Fulgore/Cinder/Kim/TJ

The stage shown was actually Sabrewolf's already revealed stage. Spinal still looks epic though.

meh :/. That moment when the only reason you dont have KI news filtered is because your still hoping for it to be on other platforms but you know DAMN WELL that ain't happening lol. On topic... i stopped caring for KI for some odd reason that i can't explain O_o

Looks like im gonna be waiting early before midnight for a chance to get an Xbox One on launch day. I regret not putting this on reserve.

#29
Tenchi_Sokaigen said on October 31, 2013 at 3:22 p.m.

Yeah, pretty annoying when "Top Stories" overwrite all your other filter options, would nice if you fix that.

Discussing what is considered a "Top Story" is a entirely different topic though... No hate.

#30
Stitch_Kun said on October 31, 2013 at 3:22 p.m.

man i kinda feel the same...i should of gotten both ps4 and xbox1 but i didnt know KI would make me so damn interested. but i also dont want to spend 500 on something im only using for KI...i'll wait until theres something else i want. ill just go to my friends house every day of the week and play it lol

cadnexus said on October 31, 2013 at 3:35 p.m.

Where's TJ Combo? Watch they reveal him for season 2 lol. Quite sure he's in, and I won't be getting this game any time soon any ways or a Xbox One. By the time I get one All 16 characters or more will be on the game disc and the Xbox One will be a bit cheaper lol.

#34
I_Are_RaBBiT said on October 31, 2013 at 3:35 p.m.

"SSSPINAL!!!!!!" Friiiiik yeah!!! Now all i need is Fulgore and TJ Combo and I'm DONE!!

MugenLord said on October 31, 2013 at 3:40 p.m.

About time, people can shut the F**K up about "Oh DH why does Orchid have the tiger as a pet? SHE IS THE TIGER" Jumping to conclusions without even waiting for confirmation -___-

She looks awesome by the way, the same for Spinal. Never really played much KI back in the day, always thought it was a generic Mortal Kombat but this game has me interested.

This game is looking better and better. Orchids vid looking so solid. I cant wait to get my hands on this. 22 days to go.

#39
TrueGamingGuru said on October 31, 2013 at 3:57 p.m.

@Y2J_br: The accessories are more like standard customization like most fighter games. Having accessory items to affect gameplay is something that most fighter games would never do. Sure SFXT has its Gem system, but you didn't need to change Ryu's looks just to have a boost effect for your character.

That is something that Soulcalibur IV & Lost Swords would do. So no need to worry about accessories changing gameplay effects, since not many fighters would make customization effect the gameplay.

@cmlights: Seriously? would shoes even effect everything?

Game keeps getting better and better one good quality character at a time.

#49
TorTorVega said on October 31, 2013 at 5:12 p.m.

There will be a PC release eventually. They want money, and recent fighting game sales have vastly exceeded expectations on PC.

The game is starting to look decent, but being an Xbox exclusive is going to hurt it due to all the Xbox account nonsense, even after the changes, that are going to make tournament organizers' jobs infinitely harder. I have a feeling this is going to be another SFxT, and that's to say a decent game that gets no love. As a killer instinct fan, that hurts. As a gamer with no brand loyalty it hurts too, because I'd love to give them my money for this game, but they picked the wrong pony. :)

Or to be more accurate, Microsoft picked the right pony with Killer Instinct, but they've hobbled it's chances of winning the race. :(

No chance....MS could careless about the community. FGC = no money. The casual crowd is where the money is at, not some niche community. DH is the one that wants to grow KI in the fgc right now and the fgc is lucky that filthy rich is the community manager.

Kwisatz_Haderach said on October 31, 2013 at 6:49 p.m.

This just doesn't excite me. Graphics are OK, I guess, but the gameplay looks clunky. To each his own, I guess...

Spinal better have the best theme! Its tradition.

Two words- "Kraken Shield"

#60
BlitzN said on October 31, 2013 at 7 p.m.

Yeah but MS concern isn't making money on KI. It's about making money on 3rd party sales, and they get those by selling consoles not games. Having KI exclusive and other such games force the growth of the xb1 which is far more important then any singular games sales total.

KI will remain a draw to the xb1, and no where else. It's in ms best interest to have it that way.

#61
shinra358 said on October 31, 2013 at 7:09 p.m.

Now Spinal was the character that I was waiting for a complete makeover for and they ended up making him basically exactly the same lol.

#62
Galletano said on October 31, 2013 at 7:49 p.m.

I could buy a Xbox one and this game for Orchid alone.

#63
courte said on October 31, 2013 at 8:20 p.m.

fulgore
combo
cinder
riptor
at announce i was gonna wait until april even now i'm waiting for april. i've been at the same hype/interest level throughout.
hopefully by the time the whole season pass is complete, all the original costumes will be there. it looks like a great effort, and designing fighting games to be updated with the frequency that other genre's recieve is great. hopefully this hits at least 20 characters or maxes out at 30. great stuff

#64
courte said on October 31, 2013 at 8:24 p.m.

orchid looks great. she reminds me of orchid.

i rather like exclusives across the board. i hope it means optimized games across the board. it'd give a reason to actually own both consoles. i don't see anything wrong with that. if you don't have to replace one, you'll spend less on the console then you ever would on games and online over the course of the console lifespan

hated spinal but he looks good now and now im sure max has inside info kuz he mentioned spinal before. hes also been yapping about fulgore and he mentioned tj and cinder in another video too so id put money we have at least 4 new characters maybe by season 2? the 3 mentioned and prolly another new 1

i knew it was gonna be Spinal
i am 70% sure the next reveal is gonna be Fulgore

#74
Dimensional said on October 31, 2013 at 11:46 p.m.

Hmmm Orchid looks ok but I was hoping for something a bit better I hope you can take those goggles off though they look stupid I liked the vid but didnt think much of the stage and ugh god the music was freakin horrendous. Spinal looks good what I expected there. This game dosent scream next gen though. Im kinda sad I wont be playing this game at least not in the forseeable future especially since Orchid and Sabrewulf and Spinal are in who I really liked back in the day now bring on Riptor and Fulgore.

#75
KiD_LupE said on November 1, 2013 at 12:25 a.m.

Still no Fulgore smh... hopefully him and cinder are added by the time I get the X1

#76
xShonuffx said on November 1, 2013 at 2:11 a.m.

I think people are just saying the goggles look bad just because everyone else does. I hardly notice them. The argument hardly carrys any weight anymore.

Cinder has to be after Spinal, saving Fulgore for last.

shinra358 said on November 1, 2013 at 5:44 a.m.

I like how she's right behind the tiger doing a slide or a knee and not actually turning into it. It's cooler that way.

#81
mrambitious said on November 1, 2013 at 6:34 a.m.

Im confused as to why people give NRS so much crap about their animations but have no issue with this game. Nothing about the game looks bad but the animations are some of the stiffest and repetitive animations ive seen in a long time. DH also said they were giving characters more defined roles and blah blah, but everyone has the exact same stategy with a different method of starting your combos. Just because you can combo from half screen distance does not make glacius a zoner, especially when good zoning doesnt win you the match, but only moves you slighly ahead of the opponent. Im sure this game will be popular for a bit, but will turn into a niche fighter like Skullgirls.

#82
JMJ_X said on November 1, 2013 at 6:50 a.m.

Just wait till the game comes out so you will have a better judgement to it and opinion..

#83
JMJ_X said on November 1, 2013 at 6:53 a.m.

The game was only in development for 10 months... 10 MONTHS!!!! Game turning out to be awesome. give the credit for what credit is due

not gonna lie, the game looks cool. Never played Ki back in the day, but Spinal looks awesome. I just dont like xbox :(

#86
EasyBucketz said on November 1, 2013 at 8:54 a.m.

He had the same info everyone else had. He was drawing inferences from the Pin Ultimate edition box art. There's one character left for Season One and it's going to be either Cinder or Fulgore (my money's on Cinder).

Say, is this really a reboot???, and if it is, WHEN'S EYEDOL???

#89
JMJ_X said on November 1, 2013 at 2 p.m.

yes this is technically a reboot. In retrospective, its Killer Instinct 3 but in reality its just called Killer Instinct. All you saw in killer instinct 1 and 2 never happen but the characters from that are going to be in the new one except for one character. Double Helix did not mention the character but I will assume it will be either eyedol or gargos

#90
Shintakuma said on November 1, 2013 at 4:13 p.m.

And this is why I'm buying this game so I can beat down spinal players! Can't keep a dead bone down!

#91
ALPHATT said on November 1, 2013 at 5:22 p.m.

Why only use it for KI? PS4 has no games, no point getting that console for the actual games. Get only xbox one and get all your games on it, the end.

#92
Truegamer said on November 1, 2013 at 7:37 p.m.

Killer Instinct is looking better now
But I aint paying a $500 just for one game...

#93
SummerUndercover said on November 2, 2013 at 11:39 a.m.

Obviously Fulgore is next, being the series mascot and all... but bring on the Riptor PLS.
