The Trash Talk During Microsoft's Conference Was Awful

Kotaku: "Trash talk never sounds good—the things you say in the heat of the moment don't make sense and cursing is unbecoming. So the awfulness when a Killer Instinct producer and an Xbox live community manager took the stage and trash talked isn't unsurprising, although having it be scripted trash talk takes the awkwardness to a whole other level."

The story is too old to be commented.

am i the only one who isnt impressed w this game??? I love KI but it doesnt look that great to me

Majin-vegeta1957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

They farked up Jagos design.I HATE YOU M$!!


original Jago: https://encrypted-tbn2.gsta...

Now look at the new jago design.

JokesOnYou1957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

I don't know what you're talking about they showed it Live on stage being played and it looked great....what Fighting game right now looks better? Its KI, Microsoft finally listened!....can we get some HD feed please.

Kotaku loves putting themselves in the news, of course their smack talk wasn't genuine, their just doing a show, kind of hard to really get into a fighting game with the whole world watching.

WhittO1957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

it was cringe-worthy lol

What is more funny, they are prob not even actually playing the game.

kenshiro1001957d ago

That is true Vegeta. I had to squint to see if it was the Jago I grew up with. He was my favorite character. I really hope this game doesn't suck.

darthv721957d ago

i am more of a Galcius fan. Saberwulf would be my 2nd choice.

No, I'm with you... I absolutely LOVED Killer Instinct, but this just looks off for some reason. I don't like the art style to be honest. Jago didn't even look like himself.

irokster1957d ago

Same things I was telling my wife. It hardly resembles the old KI and they dont make the old, hilarious sounds when they get hit. Jawglaw, jaglaw, jaglaw!!

nirwanda1957d ago

Looks a bit cartoony like street fighter which is s shame, I was hopingmore for a mortal kombat style
Overall all I was pretty impressed with most of what MS showed.

majiebeast1957d ago

These are the devs behind SilentHill Homecoming so dont expect a good game that works.

Ozmoses1957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

the worst part was the in game announcer.. when he said combo my ears shattered.

StraightPath1957d ago

A lot of sony fans were truly left hurt and can not have the decency to admit MS just blew everyone away.

DivineAssault 1957d ago

let me have some of what you are smoking.. Blew away by what?? This game doesnt look all that nx gen to me.. None of their exclusives did.. The multiplats (which are on PS4 as well) looked nx gen.. They didnt have a single exclusive im interested in & completely killed my hopes of a great KI game.. Sony is going to murder them in a few hours lol.. Jus wait n see what devs from both the west & east have to show

TotalHitman1957d ago

You again... yeah, no... MS was underwhelming. They did speak about games, they kept their word there. They showed some good games, no Kinect crap, which is good. They dodge the DRM question though. Also, the price! Yeah, no...

No prepare to watch a proper conference with Ubisoft and Sony.

smashcrashbash1957d ago

Ummmm.No we weren't.I am not hurt at all.Microsoft fans never admitted their reveal tanked so not sure why we should admit anything. Anything they do now would have to be an improvement.They basically did one of the crappiest reveals on record so of course their conference would look good by comparison.Anything they did would look better by comparison.Their reveal was basically 'Here is a big grey cube, mumble something about competing for your TV and promise games later.Not very hard to top. When you do your absolute worst you can only go up from there.

T21957d ago

that female employee playing killer instinct, the one with that godawful skull design sweater... was so awkward. it was truly embarassing, and that sweater! I'm no fashion critic but that was hideous.

Ozmoses1957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

and that other game.. shattered something with the soda gun looked like a cartoony spin off of INFAMOUS...

and they opened the show with MGS/Kojima.. as a blatant hahah F You Sony move...

but that doesn't matter cuz any true MGS fan knows to play it on a Playstation brand console.

nirwanda1957d ago

Any true mgs fan would want to play the best version of the game wether it's on a sony console or not.

Ozmoses1957d ago

and any true MGS fan would have MGS which can't be played on an XBOX

The_Troll_Whisperer1957d ago


.....So you'd play it on a PlayStation 4....

Since it's more powerful (50 percent more powerful, actually.)

I have spoken

LonDonE1957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

agreed ki is supposed to be fast and frantic, while still looking cool, this one look slow and bland, i didn't like the animations for the combos and was it just me, the game play didn't even look 60fps, may be the guys playing didn't know how to play and how to do auto doubles, and link combos, but so far i aint impressed, the problem with M$ is like the xbox 360 they will make exclusives, and decent games for the first 3 to 4 years of xbox1, to hook people in, and then it will just be rehashes, and kinect for the other 3 years, and will end up loosing most of the so called systems exclusives, look at the 360, they done the same, the 360 the last 3 years was like a baron desert compared to PS3!

DivineAssault 1957d ago

agreed.. & PS3 is still pumping out greatness while creating even more greatness for the PS4.. Sony makes a gaming machine that suites my tastes.. M$ is a money hungry tyrant to me.. Some timed DLC for shooters isnt going to make me want that system.. Oh well, lets just see how this all plays out so these sony haters can see what real nx gen console gaming is about

RavageX1957d ago

Don't like the looks of it. KI was and probably always will be one of my favorite fighting games ever.

This...not sure what to make of it. Like several have said, Jago looks stupid.

dale_denton1957d ago

graphics looks like sf4, meh

Mr_Nuts1957d ago

I just didn't like all the bullcrap and fake smiles, this line got me the most for some games. Sunshine Overdrive, Dead Rising 3 etc

***...can only be achieved on the Xbox One***

Really? I don't think so.

Then you had the Cloud talk

*** Thanks to the Cloud... ***

They just made it out like they've always been this loving, fun gaming company who always listen, hell he said that with Killer Instinct ***We listened ***. Oh yeah thats why it missed an ENTIRE gen along with another Banjo game, Conker 2, Perfect Dark 2, Kameo 2 etc.

Godmars2901957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

Really think most will come away cringing at, "Just let it happen, it'll all be over soon" as said by a male employee to a female counterpart more than anything.

Really, if they were going to set that particular one up, you'd hope they'd have been smart enough to have a woman ringer say it.

Actually that one especially could blow up in their face. Has to be the new "skittles" at least.

KwietStorm1957d ago

LOL can't believe he said that

rainslacker1957d ago

I don't think it was meant to be a sexist comment, just trash talk. But no doubt someone will take it that way and make a big deal about it. I'm sure someone is already writing up an article on it.

Godmars2901957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )


And if they had set things up so that the woman had said it, been or at least looked honestly good at playing the game, it wouldn't stand as something potentially damaging.

At the very least they've given Sarkeesian a sound bite. If she ever finds or is told about it.

theWB271957d ago

A complainer will always be a what it missed this gen. It missed the gen before it also. The Nintendo 64 was it's last iteration. People talked about it more and more...they brought it. I'm ecstatic that it's finally releasing. Better late than never.

Everybody says it can only be accomplished on sayed console. It's called advertising, enticing the buyer to get that console. If Sony says it can only be achieved on the PS4 we'll know they're lying, know why? Cause the PC can outperform the PS4. Complainers complain, find anything to complain.

Mikelarry1957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

i really hate that sales line can only be achieved " insert console of choice" it really irks me

Captain Qwark 91957d ago

well maybe if all you gamers who are apparently so vocal about rare making another banjo, conker, perfect dark, or kameo actually bought the last entries in their series we would be getting more.

Mr_Nuts1957d ago

We did buy them, thats why we want more

What kind of logic is that

Captain Qwark 91957d ago

all of them except perfect dark sold terribly. no you didnt buy them. banjo was even a budget title

TXIDarkAvenger1957d ago

TBH I didn't want another Banjo-Kazooie game. They fucked the other one up pretty bad.

Yeah all of that banter was humiliating to watch/listen to.

GravelerMagnitude91957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

That Black dude was not Black. Not black as in his personality and voice, but not black as in he is 100% Asian . "Rockman has evolved into RockMech"

irokster1957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

That dude was putting way too much emphasis and excitement on that rock man thing. lol

I also noticed that he was only able to get his nails into his pockets because of how tight his jeans were XD

The whole conference was awful.

Awesome, stunned silence at the $500 announcement. Says it all.

Microsoft fucked up yet again.

Sony just has to say $450 and they've won this generation.

dark-hollow1957d ago

Sony Sony Sony Sony Sony Sony Sony Sony.
All you saying is Sony this Sony that! Why it should be like a freaking two sided battle with only one winner!? MS conference was great and hopefully Sony's will deliver the bombs also.

nirwanda1957d ago

Agreed I was pretty impressed, I'm hoping sony matches that too, great start to what should be the best E3 for years.

TXIDarkAvenger1957d ago

I thought MS did a great presentation too.

I'm actually excited for a lot of the games they announced. All I can say is its going to be a great time for gamers when these consoles release.

nirwanda1957d ago

Except the price which part was awful apart from the price.
They did nothing but show good looking games.

Skynetone1957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

sony will be cheaper for sure

399 and a copy of killzone might be a bit generous but I expect a 399 price

I think sonys big announcement will be the size of the hard drive, 2tb for there premium and 1tb for the 399 version, I expect the premium to be 549
