In light of prior rumors it looks as if NetherRealm has 3 suprise games in store for us.
After that unbalanced mess they called a fighting game. Im Definitely not buying another fighting game from them.Just leave the fighting games to the Japanese. Seriously go play MK than go play SF4, mvc3, blazblue, Doa, or tekken. You would see a huge jump in quality.
You mean the game that sold over 3 Million units and is the top fighting game of 2011? Yea... must be pretty bad. /s
Ok and most people bought that game because of the hype. When you look at the core gameplay and compare it to other fighters. It a horrible fighting game.
Why is it that an argument of quality is brought up, sales numbers are brought up as if they matter?
actually most people i know who bought it, got it becuase it was/is one of the best fighting games around. maybe its not as deep as some of the jap fighters but its an absolute blast to play and has an outstanding sp and tons of extra modes.......more than MVC3 or SF can say
It's just the new trend Godmars, though I do disagree with Mika. I think the MK reboot is awesome. I also think NR would do Killer Instinct justice. I kind of hope this is true.
I enjoyed it. The best fighting game I played this whole year (personally). I've played the other superior "japanease" games you mentioned, and I would hardly consider it a high jump in quality... But whatev...your opinion and all that shit.
I'm not a fan of the recent MKs so, please have somebody else do Killer Instinct!
i had fun with it... isn't that enough anymore?
yea, after playing MK9 probably not picking it up any of their fighters anytime soon.
I know how you feel but don't let it get to you. Street fighter X Tekken is looking awesome.
minus the gems...
I don't. All the disagrees are probably a good sign of other people as well.
i agree with what you posted originally as well. The game was a huge hype machine. The game itself is fun, it has its flaws but it is fun and it was a good start point to start fresh again. But the balancing of this game seemed to be geared towards tom brady and the tournament crowd and then it still wasnt very good. You can go online now on the ps3 and the sheer lack of people on it is startling compared to when it first launched back in april. To this day the online is still as laggy and buggy as it was when it started, not as bad, but still it didnt get the support i thought it was going to get. It was a quick cash grab and see ya later, lets pump out mk10.
If this does happen, i hope they don't F it up. Killer Instinct was one of the best fighters back then. Fulgore! lol
Cinder!! Yea would love them to get a hold of this ip but i doubt M$ would do it. http://youtu.be/dSC-0_9Dahc
That's right. Doesn't rare own the IP? I cant remember if they do or not. :o Oh, and that was a badass video. Damn, i lost :( lol
@signifiedsix midway and rare co developed the first one, so mid way might have had rights to it before they bankrupted
Ms could outsource it to them.
T.J Combo but the thing is I hope they dont make exclusive character cause that would suck major donkey ass and what I want from this game is simple: from triple combo to KiIing Combo(more if possible) all the main character from previous game ULTRA- Ultra- Ultra- ultra ultimate -ultimate ultimate finishin and of course C-c-c-combo breaker since they are doing both game why not make a killer instinc vs mortal kombat. not only millions of nostalgic (myself include) will buy it but you get the best fighting game ever.
I loved the series growing up. NetherRealm did manage to make Mortal Kombat relevant again so I'd like to see what they do with this.
Nice!!! Can't wait. Is this what NetherRealm hinted at earlier? Does anyone remember that tweet?
I actually thought Nintendo owned the Killer Instinct ip... maybe not...
i though too but i guess not
I absolutely adored Mortal Kombat. One of the best fighters I have played in a while, and it actually had a Story mode that mattered. Really hope to learn more about this game.
own the IP, and i dont think WB does exclusives, especially this late stage in the console gaming market a publisher like WB wouldn't alienate a market to make a nitch genre to just one platform! Which is why i dont think MS tapped WB to commission NRS to make Killer Instinct! now if MS sold the ip then hell yeah! bring me Jago and Orchid and Cinder! loved all three of those characters
im sure if the money is right WB/NR wouldnt have a problem making an exclusive game....
That is the only way it would happen, I don't see Microsoft parting with an IP that they paid almost $400 million for. They bought all of Rares IP's that were original, while Nintendo kept the ones that they already owned, like Donkey Kong and Star Fox.
hellz yea, SUBZERO VS GLACIUS
Have fun paying for every single piece of content with your capcom games Mika. I wouldn't have a problem playing capcom fighting games if they didn't cheat retarded fans like you.
This will make for an interesting game... We'll see what happens.
JAGO was easy to learn to play, but once you got FULGOR in control it was over! ;)
No way does Microsoft give up their IP to anyone unless it's a exclusive. I'd love to see another K.I. game, but it should come from Rare or Microsoft Game Studios. Although I think Twisted Pixel could do a fine job with some of Rares IP's. Now if NR would do it exclusively then I could see it getting done.
RARE isn't what they used to be. There is nobody left from the original staff that made KI. They only make kinect games with avatars now. RARE is dead.
Oh please! Don't give me that old claptrap, Rare is a 30 year old company, so of course they don't have original members. As for them not being what they used to be, they have created some of my favorite games this generation and they are responsible for my favorite Kinect game. Which has sold over 3 million copies. Hardly a poor job by them by any means. Just because you might not like Kinect, doesn't make the games for it poor. Just because Rare isn't making Donkey Kong or Star Fox doesn't make the games they do make poor. Microsoft paid all of that money to acquire Rare and their IP's and they wouldn't let an IP they own end up on a competing console. That's just me being a realist, to think otherwise is ignorance at it's finest.
I love KI music
LOL, I still have the soundtrack from when I bought my SNES KI bundle. "K.I. Feeling" anyone?
Mk has to be one of the greatest fighting game out there.really -Mika-
I would like to see that but doesn't Microsoft own the Rare franchises and Neatherrealm is owned by WB
Good. If Netherrealm is doing it, it's not likely to be a 360 exclusive.
It could still be a 360 exclusive since MS owns Rare. I just want to see a new KI either way.
Microsoft can outsource Killer Instinct to third party and make it exclusive just like how Nintendo let Team Ninja made Metroid Other M for them. Microsoft owns the Killer Instinct IP. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
I'm just waiting on the next Def Jam fighting title to be announced. I wonder who's going to publish it though.
Lets hope for some kickass KI music too!
