Played last night with a bunch of people. It was a blast! We had a lot of fun. The level of co-op in the game is really cool and surprised me. The game has great impact and is pretty consistent across. Lots of nostalgia.
I liked a lot of the touches. Faster fighting on a 2d plane in a game that doesn't have little red riding hood in it made me VERY happy. It makes me want (like I always have) another Killer Instinct. Noob is awesome. Sektor is still a bitch. If you have a sick sense of humor you'll have fun just watching poeple play it. Also if you like laughign both at and with games
I dont know how much I would actually play it tbh. Outside of a "party" or whatever.
I have one real complaint for the game and thats what I personally call "Explicit Design". Theres no real term for it so I just use explicit design to describe some games or some things that have elements that I really dont want to get into over text or into over the intenret. MK2 was amazing. then they "chipped it" and people didn't like it as much. That was when I was a kid. And to this day there are some games that have explicit design that tend to bother me.
I understand. Get a 15 year old Tourny based player to come in and show you a 70% combo. Great. But i'm 31.. i'm drunk. and I dont give a shit.
This is why I have hope for a KI. KI always took care of this very well - for anybody who was hardcore player out there, they know what I mean.
To sum it up. I was Kabal and I did a little number on an opponent and then when they hit the ground I threw a ground blade.. we were all like OH OH OH OH!!!!!!!! I could feel my blood pressure goign up a bit and got all excited!!! AND AND AND OH YES.. ANDD!!!!!!!!!!!
the blade went right through her and off the screen
look at combo list
execute combo again
execute combo... again
set down controller and grab a beer.
