    Their background music sounds sorta like the training background theme from KIG.

    Maybe that was the idea.

    DAT DOJO MODE!
    No Seriously I'll echo what many of you have already said.
    This training/lab mode is the greatest thing to happen in a fighter. Other games need to take note.
    I thought DOA5's training mode was good, but this is really making me happy.

    if i'm reading the blurb on trades correctly, it sounds like it's saying that normals adhere to a priority system like third strike. you can only get a trade with normals if they're of equal strength, so i guess that implies that some priority system must exist to prevent trades in other cases. but unlike 3S, special moves always beat normals in this.

    Its based on attack strength.

    Heavy>Medium>light.

    From what I've heard it's Special moves>>>hards>>>mediums>>>lights. Lights don't prioritize anything. The other stuff works traditionally. Meaning Medium will beat light, but you can still use hard or a special move to beat a light traditionally if the hit box or spacing is stronger. So if you're trying to beat a s.MK you can either use priority system and throw out a HP/HK, or use a special move, medium or light attack that beats it via hit boxes and frames traditionally.


    @Koop, they confirmed that Kevin Beyliss designed Orchid in KI2 to be a facial mix of both Paula and Janet. Which is why she looks a bit like both.

    In short, the priority system only comes up if the move would otherwise trade.

    If its hitbox wins, it doesn't matter what strength it is.

    Already been asked for in the stickied wishlist thread on Double Helix forums. Since the game is ever evolving they're basically collecting a list of what the fans want and promising to eventually make good on a lot of it as time goes on. Most of the stuff I want is already in (GGPO style netcode, viewable hit boxes, training mode that teaches you the game and not just combos, frame data for everything in the game, input based button checks). Basically no strategy guide required, can lab to the absolute fullest, no button checks required, good code. I'm straight.

    The only other thing was a save/load state for combos so you can start a combo again where you dropped it in training mode. I think they might have already have that in or they'll put it in pretty soon.

    I fucking have a tear in my eye right now.

    The Dojo Mode actually gives you Audio AND Visual cues to help you complete linkers. It's showing you how to do a link combo/manual doubles. If I had access to this with KI2...fuck, if this was in fucking Street Fighter 4 I would be MUCH fucking better than I am right now!

    And the Orchid Teaser...Dem Big Tits!

    Yeah plus most of the links in this game should be fairly doable like 2 to 4 frames to link. Shouldn't be too much SFIV/CVS2 1 framers or plink stuff. The audio cue especially is ingenious.

    Woah WTF so the TE2 has an actual KI artwork on it? Never expected that! Fuck I will spend $250 for that if I have to. It's mine!
  • Dai_Dai_ Joined: Posts: 359 ✭✭✭
    Some comments of MarkMan in NeoGAF:
    ** Yes, this is a prototype. Please note that it is not the final version.

    The artwork looks a bit washed out but I assure you it looks better/pops better in person. Looks like they didn't take off the thin layer of protective plastic cover off the top panel so it looks washed out, color wise.

    ** Also, you can change the artwork easily if you want to, BTW.

    The way the TE2 is designed/engineered, you won't have to take off the buttons to replace artwork. The buttons sit on raised platforms and lie flat with the top plexi panel. Thus allowing the buttons to pass through the holes/gaps and replace the artwork as well, just as easy. You'll only need a flathead screwdriver (included with the TE2) to remove the balltop and swap artwork out.

    Just had this conversation with MarkMan on irc. He didn't answer the last question I think he went afk.

    [23:29] <purbeast> MarkMan you around?
    [23:29] <purbeast> wonder when/if the ki te2 will go on preorder
    [23:29] <purbeast> want in on that shit asap
    [23:33] <MarkMan> the Mad Catz TE2/KI stick won't go on preorder for about a week or 2
    [23:34] <purbeast> okay cool MarkMan is it gonna be on like amazon and gamestop? or just madcatz.com?
    [23:34] <purbeast> definitely wanna get in on it day1
    [23:34] <MarkMan> mad catz site first, then other sites later
    [23:34] <purbeast> sweet
    [23:34] <purbeast> any finalized price we can know about yet or no?

    This was in a public channel so not like it was a private message or anything. I also wouldn't take it as gospel since it was just out on a public irc channel.

    Ok, just finished watching the stream. Here it is on youtube

    Kind of wanted to talk about the main theme music for a second. This is something I noticed from the very beginning of the announcement of the game. If you listen to music played in the trailer, its basically the theme that has been in the game for a while. If you're not sure what I'm talking about, its basically the one Mick Gordon previewed on this site http://www.killerinstinctcentral.com/exclusive-killer-instinct-xbox-one-music-suite/

    Ok, now, if you listen to this theme from this video You will notice that it sounds different. IMO, I like this theme a lot more. Now what was interesting to me is that in a video Max did, he said that he was talking with Mick, and that the theme that he previewed on Soundcloud will not be the final version of it, and that was in this video . So, I guess I'm a little confused. On the stream they did today, when they got to the part where they were talking about the Dojo, I noticed that the theme music continued to play through to the other part of the original theme instead of the repeating the part that Mick had teased. So have they changed their mind and decided to stay with that theme or not? I kind of hope not, I loved the theme they had in that Jago Combo Montage video.

    They haven't used that older version of the track since E3. Unless it's added in the killer cuts version of the song, you probably won't hear it otherwise.

    Just found out that the arcade stick will have special indicators with the LEDs. Like when your instinct mode is ready, the HP and HK buttons on your stick will flash repeatedly to signify what to press to activate it.

    Something tells me that stage has an Easter Egg in the form of Ultras triggering the destruction of its walls, causing it to become a Rooftop.

    I hate typically hate artwork on sticks so that is a day one removal - not worried about the art. All I care about now?

    Price, release, availability.

    I'm currently on the fence about my pre-order for an XBOne (trying to buy a house, need that money for downpayment and every bit helps) - so I'm trying to budget 'exactly' how much I need. I figure it won't be a sell out item (the stick), but if say each GS only gets one of them, or TRU doesn't get it, or Walmart doesn't get it...hell right now GS and Da Internetz are the only place I expect to be able to get it - so how hard will it be to get?

    Because honestly, if I can't get my hands on a stick until after Xmas - then I don't need to worry about getting my XBOne until after Xmas.

    Take that ps4 light bar.

    I hope it's not too expensive, and they fix that issue with the triggers from the TE1.

    No, it's just the wording is poor so it makes you think you are getting the full game until you read the fine print. All you get is Shadow Jago, but they word it as if you're getting the whole game. They're just giving you the same game you can get yourself for free (that comes with regular Jago) and they're just throwing in an Xbox Live renewal exclusive character after you download the game (Shadow Jago).

    So really there's nothing to worry about. Although it's not confirmed, you should be able to just buy the Ultra pack and then purchase the Xbox Live deal which gives you the character Shadow Jago. You'll already have the game installed plus all of the content from the Ultra pack, so the Xbox Live offer will basically just be throwing an extra 9th character onto your ultra pack. 6 characters on launch + exclusive Shadow Jago which is 7. Then the last 2 characters that make up the original 8 for the Ultra pack/Season 1 will release by Feb and be open for early beta testing before then.

    Not really sure, unless you have to receive something physical in order to use it.

    More stick news.

    Yeah the Day 1 XBL is basically you paying $20 - $25 just to use Shadow Jago. Definitely not worth it IMO. You can find 12 months of XBL easily for $35 - $40 pretty much any day of the week.

    I haven't been following the game a whole lot but how will the basic gameplay be? I mean will we see insanely long combos often or will they happen every once in a while. I rather have some shorter combos with some mixup/pressure afterwards to keep the match flowing, i know you can break combos at certain points though. Also will there be a strong focus on the neutral game?

    Game isn't out ofcourse but maybe an insight how it's played right now?

    Killer Instinct has always been about long combos. If you don't like long combos, you won't like it in the long run. Especially since there's incentive to finish your opponent off with an ultra combo that can last up to 100 hits or more after you're already dead.

    With that said, the game does give you more options to escape long combos than other fighting games and isn't as 1 player based once you get into a combo as other long combo games. The game's spacing game is very much like SF and a lot of the same tools you had in SFIV or SFxT (outside of focus and cross art stuff) are available to you in this game. To me, I would best describe it as I did SFxT which is a newer version of SF Alpha 1 since that had the same premise. Generally ground footsie based game that revolved around chains or long combos.

    Sadira throws in a bit of a wrench by being able to wall jump like Vega and double jump like Oro or an anime character, but other than that the spacing game should be familiar.

    I want to see what shadow Jago is first.

    If he's only available through a one time limited time offer... Then I'm thinking he's not that big a deal.

    Also, probably not tournament legal anyways.

    Did play some KI today.

    Had to wait 45 minutes to get into the facility.
    Had to wait 1,5 hour in line to get into the bloody XBone room because they just had to place it next to the heavy mainstream hitters.
    The line only got bigger as the day progressed.

    Had around 15 mins hands on time (they had to literally boot us off) but it was worth it.
    No youtube vid does this game justice, you have to see the 60fps on an HD screen.
    At first I was worried about the animation with all those cancels due to combo's etc.
    But everything looks nice and fluid, overall the game looks very good.
    Just the feel of isolation on Glacius's Crash Site stage is awesome

    In terms of gameplay and controls;
    The combo system is friendly but has much room for complex stuff
    Landing combo's feels rewarding, landing a combo breaker even more so.

    I had my doubts with this game in terms of animation and gameplay... Those doubts are gone..
    Consider me hyped :)

    Yeah I already saw the game in person at Evo, and seeing on those big HD screens and the viewlix style cabinet is very different from watching it on a stream. It's definitely better in person. I was on the fence about going to Evo until I heard KI was going to be there and that pretty much confirmed me booking a flight.

    Glad to see more people are liking it and look forward to whoever gets the Xbox One and the game on day one from SRK.

    On the bright side.

    Dedicated servers. There's good chance you'll actually be able to play with people in "tier one" countries.

    I'm looking forward to the potential for global competition.
