Killer Instinct Is Like Playing Darkstalkers At A Heavy Metal Concert | Siliconera

At first, Killer Instinct reminded me a bit of Darkstalkers 3. It’s a six button fighter with light, medium, and heavy punch and kick buttons (that generally combo pretty easily ino each other in order of increasing power), and like Darkstalkers 3, instead of rounds, each player has two health bars.

Also, XB1, From dreams to reality, 49 days, 8 hours, 8 minutes...

This is a must-have game on Xbox One.

Too bad is selling as a F2P game. I will have to wait until season 2 or season 3 (if there is one) to actually buy the game, so I can feel I buy a complete game. By then, maybe there is a retail release with every character so far, and maybe by then they have included stage fatalities, story mode, etc.

I never played N64 KI but looking at the X1 KI the character designs look alot like Darkstalkers characters which makes me want to get X1 just for this.

"Killer Instinct Is Like Playing Darkstalkers At A Heavy Metal Concert"

...and then being asked to pay the band extra $$$ to play different songs after already buying the concert ticket to see the band.


Eh....a more accurate example would be that u get into the concert and get to listen to the headliner all u want for free, but you have to pay extra to hear other bands, which ends up being cheaper than a normal concert ticket. If you want an encore you pay full retail value of a normal concert ticket :o)

It's not cheaper. Right now every character will be $5 each. If you purchase the eight characters so far announced (6 at release, two later) you will have spent $40. While you can buy the 8 characters as a pack, for $20.

Either way, it will be better to wait until there are more characters, or even a "complete" package, just like they do with GOY Editions.

Sadly, if this doesn't get the support it DESERVES, Microsoft could kill future seasons releases.


Its cheaper for two reasons. One because its $40 to play with all of the announced characters. If I want a 16 character roster then it will be the full price. Its also cheaper because I have a choice. I don't think that I will be purchasing that spider chick, so that's $5 saved right there.

shadyiswin1747d ago


he actually doesnt know what he's talking about. Kenn Lobb someone who does know what they're talking about said there will be a way to work out for those who purchase more than 4 characters for instance after you have payed $20 for extra characters you unlock them all,or it becomes 50% off after 2 are bought and 75% off after 3,basically you will not ever pay $5 for each. person.
