Watch live video from xboxlivearcade on www.twitch.tv I can't say I was ever screaming out for a new Killer Instinct, but I've got one whether I like it or not, so I might as well make myself interested. Microsoft is currently live streaming the game on one of its Twitch channel, and it's a good chance to get an impression of how it plays in the wild.
I can't lie: I loved Killer Instinct back in the day, but I really have no concrete memories of how it was played or what I actually enjoyed about it. I have memories of the game, of course, and of landing 'Ultra' combos or what-not, but the game doesn't feel concrete in my memories like Street Fighter 2 was and is. I couldn't forget how to play Street Fighter 2 if I tried. I can remember a million strange details about Street Fighter 2: the music, the man naming all the countries as you fly to them. But I can't remember a single detail about Killer Instinct. Weird.
Anyways, you can watch the livestream above.
