lol. Well my previous post remains the same. Have not played the game since then either. I've been meaning to install it on my PC to check it out on there and at least play through story modes for about the last half of the characters. Just haven't had time to do it though. Looking I probably ended up with the most time in this game although MKX would be a close second. Poor SF5...

Not sure I finished TJ's either but he's one of my favorite from first two seasons at least.

The new dev team left a bad taste in my mouth with season 2...but I would like to get season 3 for a low price and give the game another go.

So far, Tusk's is the best.

Man, hopefully when Scorps comes out they will bump res and put in some friggin ambient occlusion. Every game should have it, dammit!

I would think that's a no brainer. At this point I think the question is still will it be Killer Instinct Season 4 or Killer Instinct 2 season 1?

Shin Hisako? I asked for a Zombie Apocalypse survivor / Vampire hunter during their character survey.

Some of the selectable options were: Wendigo, Archer, Joanna Dark, Lovecrafian creature, Djinn, (Halo) Brute, Crackdown agent and more.

Odds are Kilgore, Shin Hisako and character 3 are the last characters we will see for Killer Instinct.

The third character should be out in May and ties a ribbon around the Xbone game.

In June (E3) they'll announce Killer Instinct 2 - Season 1, built for Scorpio. I'd also bet it uses Unreal Engine 4

It would be cool if they added Atriox or Joanna Dark to finish the cast. I read that Shin Hisako is the last remixed char to join the cast.

Cool I guess. Really should find the time to go back to this game. Haven't played since season 3 launched.

For the fighters: Killer Instinct Word Cup 2017.


Sleep [Aria] vs Thompxson [Jago] matches were awesome. Mindgames, taunts, teabagging, trashtalk, lost of hype.

ICYMI KI World Cup 2017 was held this weekend. The previous Twitch vid didn't work. You can find the top 8 in the YT vid.

I still haven't given this game a shot despite downloading the seasons that were free on GWG. In fact I haven't played any fighter in many years. I'm leaning towards getting a fighting stick and playing this game. Questions before I spend that money.
  1. What are some good value fighting controllers?
  2. How is this games latency/connection? Do you notice connection advantages online?
  3. How's the population? Is it possible for newbs to still find games in a timely manner?

its improved greatly over the years and still looks and sounds GREAT.
I played it a couple times on PC in 4K after playing it on Xbox One and it looked much better. Should yield similar results on the Scorpio.
Still waiting on a season 3 deal.....
