Okay, so I see a lot of people mention their experiences in KI, some good, some bad, and some even weird or funny. So I thought it’d be really cool to look back upon your FIRST experience in KI (and I’m not talking about the original games here; I’m talking about this 1, and this 1 only). So, share what you can remember or what you just experienced (if you are, in fact, new).
For me, it’s been far too long since my 1st experience, so I can’t really say much about it (although I figure it was pretty bad considering I didn’t understand the combo system yet). However, what I can share with you is my 1st KI experience on PC, which happened, like 10 minutes ago, as of this post.
It was bad.
First thing’s 1st - I had to make sure my PC could run the darn game. The good news is that it can. The bad news? It can’t unless everything’s turned off and it’s set to the 2nd lowest resolution available. Point - Xbox. Then I messed around with the controls and even tried using the keyboard. Trying to do quarter-circles on that thing? Forget it (and don’t get me started on the DP-motion). Point - Xbox. It’s nice to know that I can still use my controller, but I had to wait like 5 minutes for the game to even register that the thing existed - meanwhile, I’m going through the menus figuring out how to do just that. Point - Xbox. Once that was out of the way, I went into an online match - and boy, did it LAG. I thought not having XBL running in the background would make things smoother, but apparently not. Even worse, my opponent was a teabagging douchebag that won. Point - Xbox.
So, yeah, I think I’ll stick with playing the game on my console. As for PC? Never again!
…unless I get a better PC, at any rate.
