I stopped playing regularly a few years ago, so now every time I go back in to it, I feel like I just picked up Sadira yesterday and am trying her for the third or fourth time ever lol. I still love it though. The game feels so sharp and so fluid compared to MK11, which I still maintain is the best MK game ever released. I love it and enjoy it, even if Kombat League is toxic AF, but graphics aside, KI is still on another level even now.
Wonder why it’s trending in the Windows Store. Also wonder why Microsoft seems to be prioritizing so many other titles over KI when this game seems to be one of their more successful ventures this generation.
Not to go in to a Microsoft rant, but it still amazes me how many of their most beloved franchises get left in the dust from one generation to the next. I mean, if people bought your system because the were interested in Crimson Skies, MechAssault, Lost Odyssey, Banjo, Killer Instinct or Sunset Overdrive, and those were by all accounts well made, well reviewed games, why let those franchises collect dust?
I know why with Sunset Overdrive, of course, but still. There are tons of games beyond the few I mentioned here that players enjoyed and were seen as quality titles, but MS somehow only manages to bring back their holy trinity and then throw us a bone here and there. Like “oh hey Fable’s back!” Great! Why the ■■■■ was it gone in the first place? How does your biggest RPG franchise (excluding Jade Empire, KOTOR, Lost Odyssey and others we’ll never see again) miss an entire console generation and why was it relegated to a Kinect game or some 4v1 nonsense?
Oh, looks like I ranted after all lol. Sorry. I want to be interested in Series X, but no fighting games announced yet, including no Killer Instinct, plus the usual suspects I’ve loved on each of the three previous generations are nowhere to be found. I should be used to this by now, and yet…
