Fulgore SON! Glacius has the MOST particles.

Edit: Goddamn that screen pause-and-shake on every hit is gonna give some people migraines.

Really looking forward to this game.

I love that menu theme so damned much.

Edited by Darji

I do not know if its the video or the game but every time a punch hits it makes my head hurt. Is there a pause with each hit or so?

Posted by TruthTellah

Glad to see that this turned out alright. Seems like a competent fighting game that doesn't sullen the name.

will patrick be in every video until he leaves after xbox launch?

Hey, what happened to my next-gen fingers?

Edited by SomeJerk

Consumer level capturing equipment = heavy hard red colours tend to hurt in captures. The unreadable little red text will be fine when playing the actual game, or when using far better capturing hardware, or direct captures.

Still looks great.. if it was a last generation console because that's where I'd expect 720p60. Jesus christ it's just a two-character fighter.

Yup, stylistic choice and IIRC we have Hollywood to thank for that.

Will people continue to ask such things every time Patrick is in anything?

God damn it, I'm dying to play this game.

Thanks for the Quick Look, Bombers!

Edited by Dberg

Shiiiit, I need to get home right away and watch this quicklook. It will determine my financial future!

I barely used the last consoles, and I really had no plans to pick up more than a PS4 this time around, but money be damned if Killer Instinct is good. First KI is my favourite all time fighting game. Loved the combo system.

SH Homecoming totally is an okay game.

I think this game looks pretty nice, though. The art style really pops.

Posted by Moonling

This game looks rad.

It's really not though. As a Silent Hill game, it's an abomination. As a general survival horror/adventure game, it's passable.

No Fulgore!?

I'm afraid my path ends here.

Edited by smokyexe

Its okay for f2p

Posted by peterh

With as much shit talking as they do about original KI, I played a lot of KI:Gold back in the day and I could swear that the combo system (opener->linker->extender->linker->ender, etc) is exactly what I remember.

PXONE! :D

Yes, Jeff would reference The Big Hit when talking about counter breakers.

Calling it an abomination is a pretty hyperbolic statement when it's not even close to being the worst game in the series. I think 'okay' is a perfectly apt word to describe it overall.

Posted by LoktarOgar

As the games start looking better, the videos start becoming more and more incomprehensible and terrible. This one might be even worse than Resogun.

Posted by CptBedlam

This game looks really fucking fun. As a non-professional gamer, "casual" fighting games like this one are perfect for me. I also like the edgy 90s vibe.

Definitely a game to catch up with when I get an Xbone in 2 years or so.

Fire Axe, never forget.

Posted by ICantBeStopped

Looks like it has enough polish, but the lame characters kind of bring it down. Killer Instinct was never cool.

@professork: Never ever.

Or it's possible that it's just my opinion.

this game..... probably THE game that makes me wish i had a xbox one.... its a ton of fun to play.

No, from now on Patrick will be in every video till the launch of the PS6. Also the bombcast is now the GiantPatrickcast and consists of Patrick talking to himself for 3 hours. He is talking about Indie games and the portrayal of women in the industry. Every week till the end of time.
Also Spooking with Scoops is now Spooking with Patrick and....oh wait

Posted by Neozurg

@acoustic: Next year as part of the 2 to be added characters for Season One, along with Spinal

Posted by THRICE_604

Yeah I'll pass this aesthetic is just so off putting and every fighter looks so so dumb. It aped MK's goofiness in the 90's and now it lacks any of that charm the MK retained.

Posted by radoman

Neh, looks pretty fun.

I dunno man... The Room exists.

Video compression can be a bad thing for particle effects.

Posted by ztiworoh

At the end, when Jeff says "There's gonna be a lot of Jagos online anyway" it really sounds like "Jago" is some kind of racial slur.

Glacius looks pretty rad

Well, as long as you're comfortable being wrong, that's all that matters. ;)

This looked gorgeous at the Xbox one tour (screw hashtags!) in Manc yesterday. People were really getting into it, even without an explanation of the combo and breaker systems.

Posted by CDUB901

Wow, color me impressed...this actually looks fun in an over the top and absurd kind of way, which I guess is what the series has always been about, right?

By far this looks like the best exclusive Xbone launch game. Kind of funny and ironic that both consoles best exclusive are downloadable titles that also happen to be free (sort of for KI)

Right now these new consoles are $400-500 free to play boxes, but of course I am an idiot and will still get one of them next month, lol

Posted by onyxghost

This game is free to $20? Rad, it's worth both prices.

Posted by crithon

Jeff "YOU TAKE THAT BACK, except for Street Fighter" that should be on a soundboard. And also those are words I live by, so I devote a majority of my life to Waku Waku 7 where I can be a giant Totoro knock off rabbit thing.

Posted by Etrips3

Oh maaaan the KI Classic main menu theme....brings sooo many memories back! It's sending me chills down my spine! Cant' wait to get it in hands!!!!

Edited by SgtSphynx

So you can still do 80 hit combos

@brad Cinder's fireball is forward forward medium punch, repeat ad infinitum.
