Have been keeping a close eye on the development of this game since it's reveal, and man Double Helix has seriously cleaned up and gotten their shit toghether.

Definetly cannot wait to see on them particle effects on my screen nov22.

  • A Soundtrack Has been revealed, HOLY SHIT. My ears will be pleased.

Orchid has been revealed. DAT SoundTrack

Preview of Jago Theme / Character Select Theme

It looks nice, but the developer behind it are pretty ass and have no experience with this type of game. (but at least Rare are assisting, although they hardly have a strong track record either)

rare is codeveloping the game my friend.

double helix is the developer leading the game,

a damm shame its exclusive to X1 though,

60 FPS =/= Good Game

Oh snap! Wow that looks great. I remember playing Killer Instinct on the N64, but this looks much more incredible!

So now you know why PC people are like "You guys! It's way better over here!" Also, I haven't heard much good about this developer nor this game. "Pretty" and "runs well" don't sell a game to me.

It helps. Who said it does, anyways? What are you responding to?

It looks good enough to buy at some point(nice gif!) but I'm in no hurry given the genre. For me, it would help if they lean into unique/gimmicky stuff in this game. The ultra combo music is cool. One or two xbox guest characters maybe?

Silent Hill Homecoming

I wish they'd put as much effort into the animation as they did the framerate. That's even "jerkier" than Mortal Kombat.

Silent Hill Homecoming

I was surprise when I found out they was making the new Killer Instinct, but hey lets give em a second chance.

Front Mission Evolved.

#17 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (3805 posts) -

That sure is pretty. Hope they nail it I'd love to get way into another KI.

#18 Posted by Korwin (2833 posts) -

It's a fighting game, 60fps in that genre is a standard expectation.

Wow, I didn't know they made that game too. I remember hating that game so much, it was so awful and boring.

This is what you can expect from Double Helix. Their development history is predominantly licensed movie titles like Green Lantern and Battleship and misguided entries in franchises like Silent Hill and Front Mission. Anyone looking forward to Killer Instinct should do so with a healthy dose of skepticism regardless of the frames per second.

It made me think of the last footage of this trailer with extra gameplay..that theme song.

#23 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19308 posts) -

The only game that would make me want an Xbox One at launch.

60 FPS isn't anything special at all for a fighting game, though. It's expected.

#24 Posted by CreepyUncleBrad (166 posts) -

Too bad the way they are monetizing the game sounds like a perfect way to ruin it.

#25 Edited by ThunderSlash (1574 posts) -

Wow didn't know that Double Helix is involved in this. I found Homecoming... alright. I enjoyed it more than SH4 The Room and Downpour at least. I recall the character models looking weird though.

everything about KI is super lame

Theres a full version with everything that's going to be the regular version of it.

They have said that there will be a full version, which I think fixes the problems with F2P pricing, unless there's something I'm missing.

That second video is really good. Being aware that you've made bad games doesn't help one way or the other but they're definitely not hiding from it.

Reminds me a bit of those old extreme ads from the 90s.

@truthtellah: That Crossfire ad is awesome. Too bad the actual game was pretty much junk. Those guns would choke on the ball bearings with hilarious ease.

Considering how much Rare has changed since the last KI game came out, I'd need to hear the names of specific devs from before the change to think this meant anything.

#32 Edited by Klei (1768 posts) -

Maybe i'm blind or something, but this doesn't seem good at all. Especially since its made by Double Helix.

#33 Posted by falserelic (5334 posts) -

Thinking about It I don't even know why I'm getting excited for Killer Instinct. It completely went over my head, that this is a skynet AKA xbox one exclusive. What the fuck is wrong with me I've lost it for no reason.

I don't know if you're being serious or not but sky-net doesn't make sense.

Ken Lobb is supervising it. That's pretty much it.

That ad is seared into my brain. Though, yeah, the game itself was not good. ha. But that ad!

#40 Posted by Turtlebird95 (2315 posts) -

I don't think it will be the most polished or feature heavy fighting game out there but damn it looks like a lot of fun, which is how KI is supposed to be imo.

Were they actually fun, though? I remember enjoying Killer Instinct back in the day, but I think that might have had more to do with the then-impressive graphics and a general lack of awareness regarding fighting games. I played Killer Instinct 2 and that game was abysmal.

#43 Posted by Milkman (16542 posts) -

Yeah, this game will probably be dumb as shit but Double Helix did give us this great Ryan Quick Look.

You're admitting to just trying to troll people?

This is a good day...

jumping in here, my memory of KI was that it was the combo/combo breaker system that either made you love it or hate it (that and the 2-stage lifebar). And at the time that was new and novel. But then MK 3 came out and did combos well enough and no one cared about KI anymore since that was the only real selling point to the series.

can't say this series was near the top of my list of ones I'd like to see revived.

hmmm good question..

Well what can I say about that Sony gif. Well after the whole bombshell with Microsoft's ridicules policy. It just left me with a bitter-sweet taste about the company. Sony on the other hand seems more trust worthy. Its a better system overall, doesn't have crazy restrictions, and it has more games. To answer your question was I trolling on sony? no, hell no.

I'm sure were not going to see eye to eye, but its ok well have different opinions.

I'm still incredibly skeptical about this game. It's from Double Helix. They literally have never made a great or even good game.
