Shame we can not strip you of that last bubble. Maybe you should take your meds next time before posting.

Max said that he would be the final char revealed after Spinal. He was right about Spinal so I would imagine Cinder is next.
DeathOfTheFanBoy  +   480d ago
Max is awesome, did you see the pirates of the Caribbean vid?

Anwya, Thunder, B Orchid and Spinal are looking like my top 3 atm.

I got the day one Forza 5 bundle but I think I am gonna be glued to KI, Forza wont get a look in!

@lets_go_gunners
I guess MS is the saving the best for last...

spinal is a cool character. I'd really like to see what DJ combo/cinder look like.

Too bad I'll have to wait to play KI b/c I'm getting a PS4 first so I'll have to wait until I save up enough money to get an X1.

This makes me wish Retro would make a fighting game for Wii U. Or another Metroid.

I agree ki and Forza 5 are the reason why I have a one on pre order.

I'm buying a fight stick for myself, and my brother as well. That way he and I can battle one another online, just like when we were kids..

See you online :-)

It sucks Rare couldnt make the game. Should be disc based
Fireseed  +   480d ago
Dude this game is gonna be so bad ass! Love what they did with Orchid, her design really brings her up to date in an awesome way, and she still turns into the firecat! :D
Edsword  +   480d ago
Sorry to be the first dissenting voice, but I hate what they have done with the art design. The characters do not look proportional and frankly the backgrounds just look so 'it's a fighting game'. I know this is supposed to be a strong launch title for the XB1, but I would take Knack to this any day of the week. Frankly someone needs to get the memo that videogames are moving beyond the over sexualized women stereotypes. Even the new Tomb Raider has moved on. I guess for thirteen year olds its still okay. I think the blood looked more realistic on the SNES, just saying... Who the heck is making this game?
MELMAN26  +   480d ago
Yooouuuuu, are joking right????

"The characters do not look proportional and frankly the backgrounds just look so 'it's a fighting game"

-Yeah, uhm so in a game universe that features a werewolf, a alien ice character, a cyborg, a skeleton, a fire character and plenty of other UNrealistic character types it should be unmistakenly obvious that there is no attempt for portionaly sized characters. Yes its a "fighting game".

"I would take Knack to this any day of the week"

-lol, just NO.

"Frankly someone needs to get the memo that videogames are moving beyond the over sexualized women stereotypes."

-Yeah but its still gaming nothing wrong with a sexy but strong character. In fact they are still everywhere nowadays, including every other fighting game like Mortal Kombat for example and recently Injustice females charachters such as Wonder Woman....now show me your previous soap box rant in regards to those games being "sexualized" and I will aplogize. -Or did YOU conveniently just get that secret memo?

"Frankly someone needs to get the memo that videogames are moving beyond the over sexualized women stereotypes"

have you seen how women dress in professional sports?

Sports like tennis, track and field, body building, wrestling, gymnastics and so on... Do you have a problem with it and think the dress code should change?

You're probably one of the ones that'll look at a womens mma fight like this---> http://i2.cdn.turner.com/si... and think nothin of the way the women are dressed but would turn around and look at a female character in a video game (like pictured above)and start ranting about how she's overly sexualized.... You sound like one of the folks that blame violence on video games, totally overlooking the violence in movies and television
Edsword  +   480d ago
Wow, you have really misjudged me. I actually carry this feeling across all forms of media and entertainment. Of course I'm also a happily married father in my early thirties who doesn't want his little girl growing up to feel she has to dress 'sexy' all the time. Let's face it, female characters in movies, games, and sports are looked at differently (I mean in a sexual nature) than men just because they are female. Society puts pressure on them to have big breast and flaunt everything they can without getting arrested.

On the violence front, I sure as heck don't blame the guns like some people do. No in fact I blame it more on the mental instability that is becoming more prevalent in our society. Parents share responsibility because they let their kids play violent videogames and watch violent movies before they are mature enough. How many 10 year olds are playing COD? I don't blame the video games or the movies, though I am not against less violence in both, I blame the parents or the individual themselves.

That being said, my opinion of this game, as a long time gamer, is that it looks like crap. I can respect anyone that doesn't agree and I'm not here to start a war.

Wait, do you know what the original orchid looked like?? She was completely over-sexualised. One of her finishing moves was taking her top off and making her enemies excited to death!

You're just nit-picking for the sake of nit.
Edsword  +   480d ago
Ha ha, wow, you people really like your Killer Instinct. The game just doesn't look that good.
Dehnus  +   480d ago
She looks a bit like Kameo from Kameo: Elements of Power, and suddenly remembered that it might actually be a fun game. Like Smash Bros but then with Rare Characters and Microsoft characters. Oh well MS probably would never do that, as it is not a COD/BroGamer market.
HugoDrax  +   480d ago
WOW! She sure does, I actually beat KAMEO and enjoyed that title very much. Which is why I'm considering picking up KNACK, because it reminds me of that kind of game.
Dehnus  +   479d ago
Oh indeed, Kameo was a great game that got a lot of unjustified hate. Sure it was a bit short, but it was a lot of fun :D. I still love Pummelweed to bits :).

Waiting on the petition to get KI on ps4...

They have ruined the look of yet another Character...
