So I’ve realized the Ultimates are hit and miss with the KI FB, so I feel the need to try to bring everything to light, and bring together a constructive debate to the forums. I’m tired of the arguing and baseless points being made so please everyone try to see each others side. I want to do this cause I want devs to not feel annoyed by FB arguing and instead have real feedback. For me I love getting feedback from people about my creations especially the ones who don’t like it(nitpicks are the best). I don’t think the devs want an ego stroke(I mean you guys are their fans) but constructive criticism.
Lets me be clear, I’m not talking about people who wear tin caps saying “KI IS DYING CAUSE I DON’T LIKE THE CHOICE THE DEVS MADE.” No that’s just going too far and unproductive in the least. (The only time I agree with this sentiment is when they chose not to give Orchid an ultimate P.S (I am not at all salty))
Now, Ultimates are something that blew the minds of many way back when. And as we all know KI fans what a KI to be true to itself. So let’s talk about the ultimate rather you hate them love them or indifferent. For me I understand why some are upset. The new ultimates aren’t as brutal as some of the old ones where, they aren’t even wacky and funny. Some are just cinematic combos(Thunders, Mayas, and Cinder’s… oh wait still not salty)). I kind of dig Riptors cause Hers was funny, but a little disappointed that Sadie’s didn’t have blood. The reason why I feel the Ultimates should be kind of brutal from time to time is cause the word Ultimate itself has blood and the announcer is so dark saying it. Kind of insulting not to and it isn’t a far stretch when someone who designed the Ultimate outro must have thought the same thing. Now I completely understand the M rated argument when the DEF edition is M, but IG would be restricted if the entire game was M. So NOT HAPPENING, but i understand why people asked for it as well.
Now some may like things to be tame cause they are afraid of things getting brutal. Well spiders creep me out but that doesn’t stop me from doing Ultra’s on Sadie’s stage. It a VG sometimes media can make people feel uncomfortable, but that’s what makes games, movies, and books enjoyable. No one is asking fro artworks of gruesome Corpse Party deaths.
Now another thing that I think we should touch bases on is the invention of new abilities. (Orchid’s flash and stomp, Fulgore going ful- bore). It invented something new. Like Spinal’s new ultim— (this is not salt and slug). But Jago’s tigerSB was a new invention. Would have like them to do something like show a golden aura over Maya in the shape of animals. Give her abilities like Vixen.(But i’m not a Dev so my suggestions are meaningless a stupid )
Another thing is gore, where as KI never had gore (Now I understand IG is not CC or WB, so their budget doesn’t get as massive as SF or MK, just pointing things out) bodies burned you go to see the bodies. Now I understand leaving some up to interpretation, but all. Like we know they are dead just want to see it all happening. Or at least like Tusk’s are the priceless face expressions of Cinder… I mean Kilgore’s
All I’m trying to say is criticism is great, love it. No one needs to protect the honor of KI, and no one needs to whine and complains just express your opinoin without having conversations devolve into emotional madness.
So if you guys will do me a big favor, tell me 3 things you feel works for the ultimates and 3 things you think needs improvement, no cop outs I want both. And please try to see one anothers’ side without the heated arguing. And for being such great sports you all get to have a Cherry it’s PACMAN flavored!
Or we can talk about how the original protagonist and poster girl, the hottest man of KI, and our lovely maniac sub boss of a pirate didn’t GET AN ULTIMATE (Still not salty, nope, NOOOOOOPE) I’m gonnna go cry in a corner:
