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?
Regular Xbox One controller works just fine in this game. Plenty of top tier players get to finals using it. Connection online is one of the best you will find in a fighting game. As for population couldn't say on that as I haven't played the game in a while and when I did didn't play online much.

Eagle looks pretty cool design wise.

Still don't understand why he didn't detonate the bomb for chip out.
Yeah, the chip would've def killed him.

I've seen a buddy f*** up like that in a tourny too..when I told him : "I don't understand why you dont do X when that is all you do against me", I learned that during stage play often nerves get in the way of judgement. Getting out of pools is one thing..playing Grand Finals is an other.

I was watching earlier when Valoraxe beat UA Bass. I can't remember how long that Cinder juggle can last but think it can go longer. If I remember correctly I thought someone pulled it off last year.

I'm surprised there hasn't been a One X enhancement announcement.... AMBIENT OCCLUSION PLEASE!! Would make a HUGE difference in the visuals...

They announced it was getting 4K treatment at E3. Other than that, I don't believe we know what else they'll do with it.

Finally bought a fighting stick. Nothing super special but solid enough. About to finally give Killer Instinct a real shot.

Haven't played this game in ages. Never did try the PC version so maybe I should. Bought the season 3 pack but didn't play any of it.

Tried it in 4K but haven't played it since.
Might replay on the X.

DF impressions of KI on X1X from gamescom.

We knew that a 4K upgrade for Killer Instinct was on the cards, but again, it was a pleasure to see very final-looking code up and running and fully playable. It's an interesting evolution for the title - let's remember that it launched alongside Xbox One itself, rendering at a native 720p. A subsequent title update pushed it to 900p, but Xbox One X delivers a crystal-clear native 4K presentation with no performance drops we could spot. The only blemish to the look of the title comes from its video assets, which appear unchanged from the original and look decidedly low res compared to the pristine 3D rendered output

Yeah but I get the feeling that will be for the next KI if they are doing more?

Think the 3 seasons have proven successful so make a new game but this time go full out and just release the whole game rather than seasons.

I am guessing cross play with steam won't have voice chat.
