Killer Instinct needs to guest star in some games

Ah, understood. Xbox Live is something like $50/year so not that expensive in the grand scheme of things, but I definitely understand that everyone’s situation is different. I think I have a 2-month Live trial somewhere around if you want to just try it out - KI is a vastly different (and better!) game once you start playing against other players :slight_smile:


Maybe later. My xbox is currently 3 hours away by car. Didn’t bring it with me to college. Actually really regretting that. Would love to be playing a bunch of games on my backlog right now that I just can’t.


What would that be? If your answer is teleporting, both Groh and Cervantes exists.

If you’re talking about the orb in general, I don’t really know how they would implement that. Seems like a complicated tool to put in a 3D game


The orb was one thing, yes. I’d welcome how they could imagine how to implement such a tool in a 3D fighter even if it couldn’t do all the things it does in a 2D fighter like KI. My own imagining was of a orb that still tacks on from throws, allowing her to engage you at any distance. But the fireball stuff from interacting with normals would be hard to do in 3D space.

But she’d have two other unique things to her in my mind; the instinct hands and her spirit slice. Hands just seems like it’d make for a cool super she could use. Spirit slice, just because of how powerful being in a launch state seems to be in Soul Calibur. Even if the game has a one button guard.

Story wise, she’d make some sense too. Soul Calibur has always been about powerful weapons through history and hers is supposedly pretty up there. Plus, KI is not regarded for strong lore characters, it’d give her character a opportunity to be fleshed out.


OK. this is still a work in progress, but if I were in charge of this project, this is the first design dock I would make dictating racers and tracks.

I think the ganre that’s needed is a vehicle combat game.


Hopefully Rare will finally get their heads out of their a… Sea of Theives, and finally give us something else to play using their characters. Or MS just goes over their heads and farms out the ips to other devs.


Long haul games are the future… so the latter is more likely.


Speaking of “KI should be in more games,” does anyone remember when Cranky Kong tried to pawn a Killer Instinct arcade cabinet for two bucks in Donkey Kong Country 2?
