Killer Instinct for Xbox One: "faster than almost any fighter out there", "almost like a real fight"

Killer Instinct for Xbox One is defined by speed, design director David Verfaillie has told OXM - but not to the extent that victory defaults to the combatant with the fastest thumbs. Double Helix and Rare have apparently created a "tournament viable" fighter that's as much about strategy and observation as pulling off six quarter-roll specials a second. (Killer Instinct, Xbox One)

IMO the made the fighting in this game too fast. It was fine where it was a few months ago, I never really liked "hyper/turbo speed fighting" games.

70% of most real fights end up on the ground....
Neixus  +   547d ago
Most fights I've seen irl are people only grabbing their sweaters while punching. Also some one-hit KO's to the face.

Hope this isn't the case.

"almost like a real fight"

Hmmm, I've never had a real fight with a werewolf or an iceman, and I'd like to keep it that way :)

Haha was about to say the same thing.

Me in a fight...windmilling my arms for about 5 secs then becoming wheezy, slowing down to a crawl then eventually being sick. Guess that would make quite an interesting fighting game. In fact...anyone up for helping me kick start a new game...AFC - Average Fighting Championship?

that hilarious!

AFC... dont forget your inhaler!
Skate-AK  +   547d ago
That's funny. We have an AFC. Alaska Fighting Chapmionship.

"almost like a real fight" AND "Faster than almost any fighter out there"? They're getting their PR BS mixed up. How could be that fast and like a real fight?

I expect nothing less because its only on Xbox One, just like Tao Feng: Fist of the Lotus, was only on Xbox 1. I just don't understand, you own the company that made the original that so many people loved. Why would you give it to someone else to make? That's like James Cameron made Avatar, lets get M. Night Shyamalan to direct remake.

christocolus  +   547d ago
nice job guys...keep up the good work.
KonsoruMasuta  +   547d ago
Until the next Street Fighter comes out. Now that, is going to be a beauty. Or a next gen MK.
GTgamer  +   547d ago
If i see bloody roar that will be the only fighting game i ever buy for the next gen oh and street fighter 5
Mystogan  +   547d ago
Damn it where the hell is bloody roar?
Goku781  +   547d ago
Much agreed!!!!!
PFFT  +   547d ago
A next gen MK would be great!

And Bloody Roar.
Hicken  +   547d ago
Or the next BlazBlue, or Persona 4 Arena. Or whatever that new IP is that ASW is working on.
Boody-Bandit  +   547d ago
Dying to see a next gen SF, MK, and Tekken.

Hopefully Harada will announce Tekken X SF for next gen soon.

Street Fight garbage, Mortal Kombat garbage, fighting games...garbage

Power Stones Epic capcom, I'm looking at you
sandman224  +   547d ago
This game would be more fun to play on a duelshock 4 controller than the Xbox one controller. And no I don't want to spend money on an arcade stick.
Mystogan  +   547d ago
Because you already played it with both controllers to make an honest comparison right?
Dark11  +   547d ago
Um Yeah.. I'm going to stick with GG Xrd.
cellfluid  +   547d ago
I taught this was a next gen game? What's with da 720p?? Unbelievable
CrossingEden  +   547d ago
Omgereskfnjsfskfhknsajfbklncba jksbc gaiiiissssssusjsh!!!!321111121 11 720p is not acceptable for maaiiiiiii gammmeeeeeezzzzzz next-gen=high end pc graphizxzzzzz on maiiii consolezzzzz. Jesus H. Christ SHUT UP ABOUT RESOLUTION!!!! No one complains about resolution when they play HD remakes of old games like shadow of the colossus, does a link to the past need to be 1080p to be considered one of the greatest games ever?!! Hell no, so shut up and stop WHINING about resolution you whiny poor excuses for gamers.
cellfluid  +   547d ago
If resolution doesn't matter y don't u get a 8bit Nintendo or better yet get a tiger lcd video game!! It does matter that's y u have an hd TV and not a pregnant back box!!
CrossingEden  +   547d ago
@cellfluid I actually do have a back box tv. In my room at home. A relatively large one. I have a much smaller flatscreen at my dorm. Btw, I played ALTTP on an emulator, which doesn't do anything for resolution since it's an snes game. So no, obviously resolution does not matter to me. It's the GAMEPLAY that matters.
Mills93  +   547d ago
Hyped for this gameplay, graphics just everything looks great

Hopefully more fighters will be announced for next gen soon !
PlayStation_4  +   547d ago
yet it's 30fps
PFFT  +   547d ago
And so is the Killzone Shadowfall campaign so whats your point?
Tito08  +   547d ago
His point is that for a fighting game, 60fps should be a piece of cake, that's always mandatory, every single fighting game has that. And you obviously failed by bringing up Killzone which is a FPS, and is more scaled than a fighting game, your comment is a failure, I still believe this game will be 60fps instead of 30fps though, and nice try bringing Guilty Gear which is miles better than Killer Instinct lol.

Dmagic  +   547d ago
you fail so hard two complete different leagues of graphics.
PlayStation_4  +   547d ago
it's a fighting game... you need the highest possible framerate on games of this genre

really surprised they haven't hit 1080p 60fps, not exactly a good looking game by any means
Deadpoolio  +   547d ago
And what is your point...GG has already stated that they are close to 60fps on the SP.....Obviously double helix got to 30fps and decided uh good enough 720p 30fps works
iamgoatman  +   547d ago
Apart from, y'know, it isn't.
skydragoonity  +   547d ago
With the vids I've watched it doesn't look anything close to a real fight
Bennibop  +   547d ago
Looks pretty mediocre much like KI of Nintendo days. Streetfighter all the way!
xboned_you  +   547d ago
Maybe all those indie developers Sony's got will use that 50% more power and come up with a better game?? And somebody teach me the trick to knowing how a game plays and feels before the game or console is released! Cause I really wanna play this dang DR3 I pre ordered..
Skate-AK  +   547d ago
Good thing that have all those Indies. Microsoft says Indies sell consoles.

xboned_you  +   546d ago
Yea good Indies! Sony already has way more indie games on PSN than LIVE and you see what that has gotten them! It will be the same next gen! Maybe Sony should drop the GTA V bundle on ps3 advertising a AAA and advertise and indie game, thats the trick to selling more right? "Indies?
Deathdeliverer  +   547d ago
It's so crazy that I have this game preordered and I'm not impressed by it at all. Getting the original arcade killer instinct with it however is unbelievable. It has never came home outside of emulation, gameboy, and SNES. Arcade perfect goodness is what I'm looking forward to. I'm just hoping the new ki turns out to be half as good. I'm looking forward to guilty gear xrd, Under birth by night, and chronophantasma for sure. (Blaz Blue)
KontryBoy706  +   547d ago
It looks slower than the original Killer Instinct though.... which is still slower than Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Those combos were insane

I just came here for the Sony pony butthurt brigade. So many tears in this article. lol
horndog  +   547d ago
Looks terrific. Xbox is bringing it this gen with a great launch line up thats second to none.

Forza 5

Plus the new best of show winner titanfal launching shortly after. I can understand why everybody wants to talk about x1 games. Theres nothing better on anything elseand indies just won't do.
