HEY GUYS!!! GAAAAAAAMES!!!!!!

Guys, I'm going to be frank with you. I haven't been an active member of this community. Sure, this is the only forum I frequent going only to the Tested forums for help and to talk coffee. However, since I hate coffee, I've just been goofing around on these forums and haven't contributed much at all. That probably won't change today, but I've made an effort. But before I put down the list I made, I've got a few questions for discussion.

1.Why does everyone hate Killer Instinct? It should be the best of the SF/MK ripoffs, because it rips off both games equally. What gives?
2.What would you like to see at the end of this year in terms of WM's GAAAAMES!!! LIVE show? I would like to see Dave installing and playing old PC games.

Anyway, here's my list. Enjoy!

@floodiastus: Killer Instinct and Killer Instinct 2 came out in the arcades.

Killer Instinct does have fans. The biggest problem was with the pro circuit. If you get good at the game you can do combos that never end until you beat you're opponent. I've also heard elitist fighting game players say it's to simplified (although I've heard the same of Mortal Kombat).

This is fixable, and I really wish they'd make another as I thought KI was awesome. They'll probably never make another one though.

@CornBREDX: I ain't no game designer, but I'd think you could fix that with a combo-breaker system.

@c0l0nelp0c0rn1: They had combo breakers. (C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER!!!)

That's not really the point. I don't think you understand me when I say you can do combos and never stop (edit: sorry forgot to add, it was designed to be this way). As poster above me stated you'd have to always be able to break it. Players that enjoy and pay for fighting games and play pro (which is the hard core audience you want to back the game if you want its appeal to last) find this tedious. It becomes a game of who can start the combo first.

The game was fun for it's time, but in this generation it would have to be a completely different game to hold up.

That's just my opinion, though. And I loved KI so don't think that I'm hatin'. I'm not, I just know the reality of it and it's not a game that holds up anymore.

@CornBREDX: Shows how little I actually know about KI. I was just stoked that Fulgore and Jago could rising uppercuts. At the time, I didn't even know it was called a "dragon punch".

GAAAAAAAAAMES!

@TheDudeOfGaming: Yeah...

Anyway, I just played a few bouts of KI, and it's decent but combos and Combo are definitely a problem. It was totally just nostalgia and playing against unskilled opponents that made me like this game. It does need to be a totally different game, and it also needs to have unlockable Pinata!
