SORRY BRO THERE'S JUST NO ROOM ON THE CARTRIDGE. ENJOY YOUR LAME SNES QUALITY BACKGROUNDS.
KI2 isn't even the good KI and especially not its N64 port.
>>10257442It still mogged MK and SF
>>10257453It mogged itself cus it killed the series for like 15 years until it came back as a nostalgia act
>>10257484>implying MK and SF weren't dead from 1997 untill the 2000s.
>>10256019is it just a zoomer thing or what?people who were fans of street fighter or mortal kombat thought Ki was badassas a child i didnt give a fuck about comparing franchises, i simply enjoyed them all
>>10257602Console warring was a thing since the dawn of videogames. Zoomer thing is the opposite "uh game A and game B are too different you can't compare them!" because zoomers are afraid of confrontation.
>>10257153>And you were hardly alive in 1996I was. KI Gold wasn't even in top 50 best sellers on N64. and we're really scrapping the bottom of the barrel here, when #40-50 was games like Mission Impossible, Army Men and Excitebike 64>Go back to r/fighters>"nooo you can't play game online you that's not fun"my point is: in the current year of our lord 2023, every single kusoge worth playing is played online and has some sort of a community. even jank / poverty stuff like Breakers Revenge, Karnov, and so on. even the first KI has fewer people than you'd expect. KI2 / Gold just barely has anyone caring about it, period. when your game is overshadowed by poverty fighting games, you know something went wrong.
>>10257732>poverty stuff like Breakers Revenge, Karnov, and so on. You mean the stuff that works for free on fightcade with rollback netcode to boot?
>>10257742KI2 is possible to play, though they say the performance is bad. and I think it's still possible to play N64 version through RetroArch netplay. in any case, not much loss. I'm not sure that many people care about it to begin with
zoomer hands posted this
>>10257732Everyone in the arcade in the mid 2000s liked KI and knew how to play
>>10257773KI1? yesKI2? doubt it1996 was too late for this kind of game
What's up with KI Gold hate here? This board jerks UMK3 and Alpha 2 off too much.
>>10257926I prefer KI honestly
>>10257926I'm neutral towards it but there's some real maladjusted faggots on this board, like OP and the orchidfag.
>>10257926no one hates it, just no one cared enough about it. I said already that it wasn't a big hit even on N64. this is when the original KI that was a big hit despite being a late SNES game (and competing with MK). FGC types don't seem to remember it much either. and your average player already had Tekken 2 and VF2.
>>10256019How is playing a fighting game not named Smash with this is even possible?
>>10258940Pro tip: NOOOOO
>>10257536>MK and SF weren't dead from 1997 untill the 2000s3 years then?You might be able to make an argument for MK, but not SF.
>>10258940>How are you supposed to play a fighter with just a dpad and 6 face buttons...
>>10257536>implying MK and SF weren't dead from 1997 untill the 2000s.SFA3 came out in 1998 you dim cunt. and then 3rd Strike in 1999. SF really only went into hibernation after 2000, but even then Marvel continued to go strong, whereas KI was pretty much gone.
>>10257425They are barely 3D. Barely have geometry, barely textured.
>>10258940dpad and 6+2 buttons, what's the problem?
>>10258983>>10259018It's too big and uncomfortable. It's no wonder why Street Fighter or any other 90s fighting game didn't come to the N64.
>>10259017So, you think that SNES can do them?
>>10259632Not the reason. Capcom ported Street Fighter 2 to Genesis, PC Engine and 3do, neither of which had enough buttons for a Street Fighter game. 6-button controllers were made for SF2 apecifically.
>>10256019I'm glad this post was made. KI is always interesting to me...Gameplay-wise the game should be better than Mortal Kombat, more fun to play. There is far more depth and thought put behind it. Something about it seems so dull though. It goes with the same 6 button fighter scheme as Street Fighter, simliar command inputs, but throws in a bunch of strange and offbeat characters that seemed geared to 13 year olds. It feels like the devs just throw everything at the sink and hope it sticks. There is no uniformity, some may like that I get it but it does not look pretty. The only characters that don't look whack to me are honestly: Jago, Orchid, Fulgore, and TJ Combo.KI is similar to Mortal Kombat in this regard: When it came out there was nothing like it. That was its selling point, the CGI, the combos. Mortal Kombat had the gore, the attempt at a story, the characters that were interesting, the simplicity... Now that the fighting game industry has changed, CGI and 50 hit combos can't be your only selling point for KI. Gore and tacky Digitized actors can't save MK.MK got with the program, chose to focus on its story, lore, world building. They carted to the average fighting game player, while putting enough in the gameplay to make it fun for the FGC. Mortal Kombat certainly has its problems, the shitty animation, etc. But it is still here for a reason while KI is forgotten as a relic forgotten to time.
>>10257607was a huge fan of the arcade gameeven had Ki on fuckin gameboynever "console war" posted like a faggot though
>>10259017They are more 3D than any fighter game on 5th gen
>>10259632Are zoomer hands and arms really smaller and weaker than millenial children's?
