Oh God. I am so pissed off right now, I can't even fucking think straight. I just it's just NAGAHSGAHGHSGHAGSHGSHASHAGSHAGS
FUCK YOU, XBONE. YOU GODDAMN TROLLS.
Wherever you are, wherever you're from, I know what you're going through. But, don't be afraid, don't give in to fear.
SPOILER: I'm not buying either new console.
Thanks, Caminante. That means a lot. It doesn't make things any easier, but it's the thought that counts. And ooo, Cena, glad you're here; did you see the present I made for you?
P.S. It's a pony shirt and FF7 was for mainstream bandwagon posers.
Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
Coupla years ago I decided to try out this whole 'console' biz (I grew up in a house with C64 and then 286 and then 486 and since then have always had a pc) I got a ps3, it basically sucked. I dont think one game on it ever really affected me powerfully (Well, maybe gran turismo sorta did a bit). And the restrictiveness of what OS, software, online shop etc you are *allowed* use was nauseating.
I HAVE OPINIONS AND BY GOD YOU ARE GOING TO BE SUBJECTED TO THEM
Nah but I actually don't care that much if people do enjoy the new consoles, I am just not a fan of the playstation controller unless i'm playing street fighter or something. I dislike being forced to use a playstation controller when i'm trying to move a character around in a 3d environment. I guess humans can get used to anything after using something long enough, but I have no idea why people buy shooters for the PS3/4.
I'm not about to go through that guy's entire list. I'm just going to pretend it has Goe Goe Spark from Mystical Ninja on it.
Yeah, Caminante was quoting the lyrics from Orchid's stage theme. WHICH WAS AWESOME.
I'm sorry I did this to you, Evil Homer. I just wanted to know what you thought of the new Killer Instinct.
I have no shame in admitting that I am going to the Xbone midnight launch tonight... to pick up my copy of the new Zelda game that's releasing. Direct sequel to Link to the Past? Sign me up!
I was going to buy one, too. The only game I was going to get was this one. But now, seeing what they did to Orchid? Man, the No Mercy moves had better be REALLY REALLY GOOD, or else I'm seriously reconsidering buying one of those stupid things.
OH MY FUCKING CHRIST THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE NO MERCY MOVES
I have to admit, I wanted to play the new KI. Not enough to actually buy an Xbone, but I wanted to. You're kind of killing that for me. It's sounding less like fun and more like rushed launch window crap, which kind have been Rareware's thing since Nintendo sold them.
I honestly thought they were crazy at the time, selling of the makers of games like DKC and Conker's Bad Fur Day, but the best game they've made since that sale was mediocre.
>>It's sounding less like fun and more like rushed launch window crap, which kind have been Rareware's thing since Nintendo sold them.
That is EXACTLY what they're doing.
You know they don't even have all the characters? No shit. They're releasing the game "free", which is evidently the new bullshit-speak for "releasing the game as a demo". You get one, maybe two characters, and that's it. Then you've got to buy DLC for each character you want to add in to the game. And they're not releasing the characters all at once, oh no, they're giving you like two at a time, and then they're going to split the character releases into "Seasons" or some bullshit which essentially means months and months and months before KI's got a basic fighting game roster. The No Mercy moves, as I have just now discovered, will NOT be include on launch; in fact, they don't even seem to have started coding the damn things. The devs claim that they will "consider" making finishing moves, including stage fatalities, *DLC*, if and only if "the community supports their game". Oh, but No Mercy moves are "high" on the devs' list of priorities, so that's all fucking right then, isn't it?
And you wanna read something really funny? This was taken from an official Microsoft press release. No lie:
"The Microsoft representative mentions that Killer Instinct will be host to a smaller roster of characters as to not overwhelm players."
Yes, they actually said that.
That... wow. That's Molyneux-level bullshit right there.
Rare isn't working on this Killer Instinct - it's Double Helix. Also, Rare was never all that great under Nintendo. Viva Pinata and Banjo Nuts and Bolts were at least more interesting than anything they did there. Killer Instinct has always been shit. Also, the new consoles look fucking terrible. All the games look bad and boring.
Skullgirls wasn't made by Japanese people and therefore sucks.
All that cash for either console just to play side-view fighting games? Again?
Also, the best argument for the ps4 I've seen so far is that you can watch PornHub on it.
He's not joking, for the record. http://icgeeks.org/pornhub-fully-supports-playstation-4/
Hell yes! I'm keeping the shirt now, it's suddenly amazingly appropriate.
If they put M.U.G.E.N. on the OUYA maybe it would have sold?
Who am I kidding that thing is a fucking insult to paperweights.

It's not about games, it's about tying your living room together. In a parallel universe where nobody owns cell phones.
That angle always angers me. I HAVE FEET THAT TIE ALL MY EXPERIENCES IN DIFFERENT ROOMS TOGETHER WHEN THEY MOVE ME THERE.

Really, what problem is this trying to solve? The .08 seconds it currently takes me to grab the remote and press the Netflix button? And in what scenario am I constantly jumping back and forth between Netflix, football, Skype, and my game? When would I ever need to do that?
Seriously, guys. We all thought poetv was dead and now this happens? Fuck sake's.
THIS IS THE FINAL STRAW
Guys, seriously, after all these years......you DO NOT BUY CONSOLES AT LAUNCH. At minimum, wait a few months for all the patches and problems and shit to get worked out and the library of games to get better.
I forgot it's actually on poe, which is sad because I submitted it. http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=125464
What an ugly looking game.
The character's musculature and proportions are way off, and not in an artistically interesting way. It just looks like the character model was built by an artist who isn't very good.
The rigging and animations are even worse. Look at how she moves at :25. She just slides her feet together as if she's on roller skates. All the game footage shows poor fluidity between moves, and at 1:04 they even zoom the camera in so you can get a good look at her batons passing right through her opponent's body while he wobbles back and forth and doesn't respond in synch with the actual impacts.
Maybe it's fun to play, but it certainly looks no better than similar games that came out 5+ years ago, so it's not doing a very good job of convincing me to spend hundreds of dollars on a new console.
This all just means that it's staying faithful to the original Killer Instinct.
I thought Killer Instinct was long regarded as self parody of everything wrong with the fighting genre? Pre-canned combos that were the quick time events for the day, ugly poser art that lacked the charm of Mortal Kombat's motion capture from the time when 3D looked so much worse than sprites, none of the visual spectacle of Marvel vs Capco, none of the over the top violence of Mortal Kombat, none of the refinement of Street Fighter or SNK games.
Hang on. Someone above says they're putting out a Zelda game for the Xbone, and KI was developed for Nintendo.
Is this some kind of porting and updating of Nintendo's old library? If so, I wonder if updating KI was some kind of contractual agreement just to see of Microsoft was serious about supporting whatever Nintendo threw at them.
The stages and music were neat, though.
They're not putting out a Zelda game for the Xbone - it's for 3DS. It's just releasing on the same day.

That ending was way too spooky guys, wtf
Why would you even post that here
SPINAL is the official skeleton week video game character representative. Whatever the fuck that means for 'im.
What a unique female character.
Video games have been dying a slow painful dead.
