    The announcer is part of the game. Not gonna be able to turn him off. It'd be like turning off ultra combos.
    WTF are you talking about? It's an audio clip.

    If you have some sort of evidence that this would be impossible, please show me.

    I just saw on the MS store that the Pin Ultimate edition release date is now 11/22 instead of 11/29. If I can get it confirmed that it will be DELIVERED on the 22nd, I'm in for one.

    EDIT:

    I just talked to live chat on there and they told me that if you choose ground shipping you will receive it on November 22nd. I just preordered mine.


    Nice, I MIGHT actually get it now.

    Though probably still not because supposedly my Best Buy is getting the Ones at midnight. Meaning I'll probably want to stay up all night and play and not wait till the morning.

    Plus the strategy guide that will come with a regularly updated mobile "living" guide. That'll be enough collector's stuff for me.

    They can turn off anything. Like I said, they could turn off ultra combos, they could turn off the ice on Glacius, they could turn off Orchid's lights on her batons, they could turn off Sabrewulf's hair and make him a naked werewulf, but those things are part of the PRESENTATION. They're not going to let you toggle what is part of the spirit and presentation of the game.

    It'd be like if someone wanted to turn off Ryu's hadoken vocal because it was annoying. It's part of the game and they're not going to let you turn it off just because it's annoying.

    Ah, I misunderstood you. I really see no reason not to have the option, but I guess it's not a big enough deal for them to add it. To me, it's like having volume sliders for sfx/music/voices, which most games do have. But that's probably my PC gamer mentality.

    Has anyone here played KI1 or KI2 on mamehub? I'm curious about whether it's worth doing, and whether or not there are people playing it?

    The game will most likely have volume settings for sfx/music/voices. That's standard for most console games. If you need to adjust the volume they'll let you do that, but muting specific thing crosses the line of messing with the presentation of the game and stuff that people put work into. If the game gets a PC release, people can hack it to death with whatever, but that's a long time if ever.


    I doubt anyone's actually playing the game regularly on MAME now. Maybe a few for KI1 but a few would be lucky. I know nobody really liked playing 2 competitively so it'd be even harder for that. I would like to download them just to check them out. I only played 2 a couple times so it'd be fun to just mess around in that for a while again.

    I'm only talking about the practice mode. I don't feel the practice mode should be representative of the full experience, it only has to be what's best for practicing. I think hearing the announcer non-stop for hours on end while practicing would hurt the experience more than anything. Going back to your hadouken example, I think stuff like that should be addressed. There's no reason to excuse something annoying due to tradition or familiarity.

    I'm on it now, and there's really only a handful of players. I've been playing KI1 and KI2 for the past few days on mame, and it seems like KI2 requires some very strict inputs. I don't remember it being like that in the past, so I wonder if it's a problem with the emulator. Or maybe it's because I use a hitbox now, so I'm just noticing it now. idk, I used to use an ultra64 emulator in the past, so who knows.

    If you wanna get on mamehub and play a few games, I'm down. Maybe KI1 v1.5 would be best. But you should try out KI2 as well and see how it works for you, because it was definitely the superior game when it came to gameplay depth and mechanics.

    I'm pretty sure you'll be able to turn the announcer off. You could dig back into the streams and find the menus to confirm. But you can turn the announcer off in pretty much every fighting game ever... So I'd bet you can here.

    Yeah with practice mode you can just turn down the volume on the voices. Agree to disagree past that.

    Yeah I'll let you know if I download the emus anytime soon. If I do I'll probably play offline a bit before I try the online, but I'll let you know. It seems there was a lot more systems and options in KI2, though I hear a lot of people didn't like the overly easy combo breaker system and how everyone had the same execution for combos apparently. The presentation looks great though so I wanna try it just on that.

    I can think of a ton of pre SFIV Capcom fighters that you can't turn the announcer off in. I know Marvel 3 has some type of female announcer that you can turn on or off, but past that I can't really think of any other games. That makes more sense though since she isn't a normal part of the game's presentation. The announcer literally IS KI.

    You'll have to chime me in on these other games.

    I was not going to get the Prima guide just because I have so many fighting strategy guides and don't even use em. I don't even think I opened the MK one past the first time, probably cause I dropped that game quick. But damnit, I think I'm going to have to order it just cause it's KI.

    The living guide will be nice to have when I'm not by the system. Though yeah I agree that with frame data finally in the game, I don't have worry if I lose the guide and can also just check my phone. Strat guide looks nice seeing that it's hard cover. Cool just to have as a collector's item.

    Just a heads up you can reserve the TE KI sticks at gamestop brick and mortar stores incase you were wondering.

    Went ahead and added that to my 500$ queue of items.

    Sat here for 10 minutes thinking of how to introduce myself.....so i'll just say
    while i've never been particularly good at fighting games (outside naruto games lol they are easy mode >:) )
    Killer instinct holds a special place in my heart thanks to playing the SNES version everyday after school with a group friends :D

    read through the 63 pages and look forward to taking part in future conversations and hopefully playing with and learning from everyone at launch :D (if you guys can handle my fighting game noobishness ;) )

    WELCOME! Always great to see another KI lover in here.

    And just FYI, our current conversation is about to switch to "who does KI2 Orchid look like more, Janet Jackson or Paula Abdul?"

    Not to sound negative, but I'm assuming the guide is only going to cover the characters available at launch, not worth it imo, not to mention Prima did a terrible job with the MK9's, they had to send cards displaying the move lists to people as an apology for messing up.

    Well that's not entirely true. I'm mostly just getting it for collection purposes, BUT it's only the paper strategy guide that will be stuck with the 6 characters. Buying the guide will also give you access to the mobile (hopefully also accessible on PC) "living guide" that will be updated regularly by Prima.

    Not a huge deal for me either way since the dojo will most likely be updated also as new characters and tactics become regular. Plus stuff posted on youtube and message forums.

    LOL you know, you just made some very good points, and I just cancelled my preorder on Amazon. Thanks for reminding me how bad the MK9 guide was I totally forgot. I even got the hardcover one of that as well. It was a pile of shit. I also didn't really think about the whole season thing, and how few characters will be in it. If I want it, I can always buy it after the fact.

    I was just all caught up in the KI hype.

    I'd like to hear who at least is writing up the guide. If it's like Buktooth, MikeZ and Filthie then that'd be great. If it's just random guy at Prima getting info from the devs, then yeah that'll probably suck. I really liked the Marvel 3 guides especially since it was tournament players writing the guide. Don't see myself buying the Pin version so this would be the next best physical thing to buy.

    The consensus going around actually is that the 8th character will most likely be Cinder. The radioactive character icon people fill fits into Cinder's storyline. Which means Fulgore will most likely hype up Season 2.

    Maximilian is pretty convinced otherwise and it would make sense. Fulgore never really had anything to do with radioactivity if that's what it symbolizes.

    @onyx, I agree. If they could do all of that ice and shape shifting with Glacius, I can only imagine what they can do with a man on fire. Alien Sub Zero vs. Mutated Man Scorpion in the first season will be great. The classic hot vs. cold battle.

    Their whole premise so far has been to take characters with simplistic designs and basically 180 that. The characters have a lot more details and attachments to their wear than most other fighting game characters even. I don't expect him to be wearing a translucent suit and have some alien skeleton like Glacius, but they will definitely either make him a little bit different from just a man on fire or just make him the flashiest man on fire ever.

    Same will happen to Spinal, he will most likely have more clothing and generally look like more than just a skeleton.

    I think we'll do a boss job with Spinal. I'm thinking, he'll be dripping water (for some reason) with some pirate gear on, but not too much. Random gold rings, bracelets, tooth, etc... Just total badass. I actually don't want him to have his morph just because I want him to have his own style instead of using another characters moveset.

    The consensus going around actually is that the 8th character will most likely be Cinder. The radioactive character icon people fill fits into Cinder's storyline. Which means Fulgore will most likely hype up Season 2.

    There's no "consensus" going around. I really don't think it's Cinder. It's Fulgore or a new character.
    And where in the world are these people seeing the resemblance between that symbol and the radioactive hazard symbol? There is none.

    Besides Cinder's storyline has nothing to do with radioactivity anyways. He's the result of a chemical accident. They make no mention of radioactivity.

    I was just thinking about Spinal, and it would be a neat twist if his Instinct mode was just the Instinct mode of his opponent. Obviously if it was Spinal vs. Spinal they would have to have their own instinct mode though. I don't think that will be the case at all but thought it would be a neat little twist on the Instinct mode.

    I also hope the cat isn't ONLY available in Orchid's instinct mode. I know they haven't hinted at anything like that, but it's just a thought I had. It is odd though that in her teaser, the cat was another actual physical character, whereas in the past she turned into the cat for a special move. I'm very curious how it is going to play out.

    I've heard that it's +after a bit of charge. And someone said they thought it might be dash cancelable.

    This is an arc reactor. Look at the Iron Man one.

    It's Fulgore. Cinder symbol it would be a flame.

    Exactly. There are so many contrived explanations to why this is Cinder. But why would they bother to do that? If they wanted to make an emblem for Cinder, it would be something very obvious and based on flames.

    .. Right, so Glacius symbol should be a snow flake instead if his home planet and moons.. Hey, it could be Fulgore, Cinder or Cinder in a Fulgore suit, no one has this figured out.

    Fulgore would be great cuz that's my fav, but I don't think it being Cinder is out of the question either.

    The two main arguments are that the symbol isn't the UltraTech symbol, and that holding back Fulgore to hype up season 2 makes more sense. At this point he is undoubtedly the most hyped character but it could go either way.

    At least I was right about Spinal making it in the final 2.
    Strider still sucks.

    If it was Cinder, his pair it would be Glacius, and Spinal would make pair with Sabre (two monsters).

    There's logic in the disposition.

    They need to sell season 1 to do season 2 (they already said that). Fulgore is essential to this. Save him for the season 2 is very risky.
