    Do I seriously need windows 10 to run KI?
    If so then it's the same problem I had with it being Xbox One exclusive.
    No fucking way am I gonna get windows 10 early.

    "We want people to get Windows 10. Therefore we give away Killer Instict for free if you get it. Also we will give Solitaire ads that you can pay to get rid of*, because fuck casual gamers and grandparents, go hardcores."

    If Microsoft Marketing had said this openly, I would get Win10 on the spot and ignore the fact that they're just stupid / greedy.

    * I'm not kidding, they actually did that.

    You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.

    Who knows, I doubt MS would have any issues with crossplay based on their plans for Windows 10 and X1 games, maybe Capcom was pushing for PS4/PC/X1 crossplay, which would never happen.

    More likely Capcom was broke and approached Sony first, and it was mutually beneficial for both: Capcom gets to make SFV and Sony instantly pulls the FGC over to their console on 1 game alone. Based on how crappy PS3/PSN was for Capcom games in general, smart move on their part, XBL is still better than PSN, Killer Instinct and SFV on X1...and now the potential of BC fighting games, that woulda been rough on Sony in the FG market.

    The only issue from there is that things would get rather expensive for a PC player that uses arcade stick as they'd have to get their stick modded for Xbone. Which means they might as well get it modded for PS4 since SFV and other PS4 fighting game are surely coming. A pad using PC player can just buy an Xbone or PS4 controller and should be good tho. They are definitely not going to be running the PC version of the game at tournaments so that issue would have to be overcome.

    Hori just made it a little easier with an official X1/PC stick, so now there are like... 2 sticks that should work with the X1? But there is still the PS4 problem. I've been stuck over the last few weeks wishing there was a universal stick I could main at home on PC but still use at tournaments if I wanted to go. mkx and sfv on ps4 and ki on x1 and me on pc is just an unholy combination.
    Regional/Major turnout is really good at some tournaments and flaky at others. It usually tends to depend on whether or not there's a pot bonus and how long ago the last big major was. Combo Breaker had 10,000 dollar pot bonus and got like over 100 people to sign up.

    Nothing beats that hometown push in Iron Galaxy and Netherrealm's backyard, lol. probably the only location where MKX numbers will rival Street Fighter's numbers.

    This is so freaking cool, lol!
    Rash looks crazy and so much nostalgia flowing in this video.

    I'm totally done for KI on PC, which I will buy. BUT I have to be completely honest 95% of my time will be on SF5.
    I wish this game was coming out sooner for PC. I guess I understand that PS guys will have SF5 and Xone guys will have KI, PC dudes will just have to choose what they want to play.
    I'd like to know how much the game is going to cost too.
    I mean KI is free but you buy individual characters for $5
    Combo break pack was $20 for 8 characters right?
    Think they'll release a full game season 1 and 2 for $60 on PC?
    I personally want all the characters and would want all season 3 as well. Just want the developers to grant some clarification on all this.

    Probably do a some kind of Windows 10 bundle pack, the complete Ultra version has been around $50 last few sales on XBL, which includes everyone except Shago, all costume stuff and KI 1 and 2 arcade versions

    Combo Breaker packs are $20 a piece so $40 all in that way

    Okay that makes me feel pretty good.
    $50 is a really solid deal for S1 and 2 plus alt outfits, dang!

    I did want to mention the speaker lady said they were making sure all fight sticks/controllers were going to function. So good news my 360 stick will work. I was certain it would because PCs recognize them but with the Win10 update ya never know. PCs are weird are like that...can't trust Skynet.

    They will price it at whatever it sells for on XB1, considering anything you buy crosses platform.

    naw its not bullshit. MS has a "no cross play policy" with other computer platforms and Sony. That is why none of the new Final Fantasy online games are on Xbox. Square enix wanted to but MS would not back down from its policy. MS treats the windows platform and Xbox as one now.

    I remember when CCP was working on Dust 514 (which ended up being a mess) they said they wanted to have it on 360 and PS3 but Msoft was not keen on allowing them to patch as they needed. Sony was willing to modify their policy as CCP needed to allow them to handle the game properly. I'm assuming they also needed proper communication between the EVE servers and the Dust servers.

    So I guess Sony is more willing to work out the specifics where as Microsoft isn't.

    Microsoft actually did have cross platform previously with Shadowrun on GFWL. Great game, I played from release on 360.

    I think it was at the point where max and a developer were going over the combo assist system (I could be wrong though) but at that point the developer pretty much flatout said that Arbiter would be in the game.
    I believe it was in the context of 'the combo assist is great for new players which we will need when the halo crowd tries our game'.
    He didn't literally say halo crowd but something like 'group of people when we put the new guy in with the *does footstomp* and *swuuump*' pretty much re-enacting what the Arbiter did in the trailer.

    So you can be pretty sure that Arbiter is going in :)

    Nah, I'm all about that Rash. I know it's a cheesy cameo character, but his moveset is epic! I didn't follow KI up to this point, but after watching the Rash play during the KI Cup Season 3 announcement, it made me want to pick the game up.

    It's getting hard waiting for the PC version. More than likely it'll be over the Xbox Live thing on Windows 10? It already has ability to download and play Tomb Raider Rising over it I think.

    They haven't, but the Xbox one's specs should be a help.

    I hope you can turn off those fireball effects that look like a paint bucket exploded. That should help lower the load on the graphics card... and help me see what the fuck is going on.

    Hm, I think the requirements to run KI on PC might be a bit higher than what the Xbone can run, seeing as they had to optimize the shit out of the game to have it run on that machine.

    Well they said that Kim Wu at KICup was unfinished version....TJ looked a bit funky on his debut too and he turned out okay.

    They should be the same, but more options available to the PC version as far as resolution goes. Season 3 is supposed to be getting a visual overhaul in dynamic lighting and a few other upgrades, for XBox One as well as PC. Kim Wu's trailer didn't have all the new tech up and running
    The X1 has no problems running the game, there's aspects of the Hex engine Double Helix used that Iron Galaxy can't change though

    Those specs definitely give you something more powerful than an Xbox One. My rig is 8GB RAM and 960 GTX and still basically more powerful.

    Thunder is pretty good. He has a few struggle matchups, but his DP, instinct and call of the earth special allow him to do better vs zoners than grapplers in other fighting games. He's honestly one of the best designed command grab characters I've seen in a fighter as far as just overall ability to compete. His DP is a bit derpy for a grappler type, but I guess it works in a game with combo breakers.

    Thunder getting some movement stuff to help out in S3 too, he's got two sort of dive kicks to get around fireballs. They took away his multi dp nonsense, but he does have an invul LP one now. He got damage nerfs to his stuff, but he's gonna have some scary setups with flip out mechanic and call of earth buffs

    Nah. I unfortunately burned myself out of KI and there's some specific changes to the game that I wasn't really a fan of. Plus the month to month patches that felt egregious. KI was literally the only video game I played for 2 years so overall I have no drive to play it anymore. Really like where SFV is going and it's coming out before Season 3 hits so I know I won't be touching KI in a serious manner anytime soon. Kim Wu was my favorite KI2 character so I'll definitely be messing around with her in training mode, but don't see myself actually playing it competitively in any way.

    Think I'll just be doing SFV and playing older SF games on Fightcade. Maybe hit a few buttons in Xrd. Good luck to all of those playing Season 3 KI though. It's a really fun game and I'm glad I bought an Xbox One just to play it. I feel it paved a path to push good netcode for other fighting games now that SFV and MKX are both running rollback as well. Have fun.

    *Yawn* another guest character. Guest characters are so dumb, why are they taking a page from the MK book? I'm quickly losing interest in this game. I know it is probably for the best because the balance for S2 was questionable, but I find it kind of stupid that some people are essentially going to have to learn an entirely new character for S3, especially if said people play Spinal or Maya. Unless they release a really dope new character or one of the return characters looks cool I'll probably just focus my time solely on Revelator and SF5. It's a shame because I think this game is awesome, but I'm not sure even they know which direction they want to go in. With that being said, I do think S3 looks to be more of a step in the right direction than S2
