Orchids weapons and lack of Lasaken.
« on: November 01, 2013, 02:01:43 AM »

First off I want to say that the new Orchid and gameplay looks excellent.  She was never my main but wow, who wouldn't want to play as her now?

What bugs me a bit are the skinny clubs she wields, it would be appreciated if tbey wers closer to KI1.
And last...where is thy Lasaken? Sigh, a bit of a letdown but I suppose that's been replaced with her fire "cat" (lmao, not jaguar?).

I'm real happy to see her alive again in the gaming community, I missed her a lot.

The Firecat has always been a tiger-shaped entity. Jago and Orchid are siblings, they have both the Tiger Spirit within, so it wouldn't make any sense if the Firecat was something else than a tiger.

As Orchid is a rushdown character, giving her any form of projectile move is being overly generous. The Instinct mode Firecat "assist/projectile" is really giving Orchid an unbalanced upperhand, imo. She shouldn't have a projectile as a rushdown character.

Funny, I've always called it Tigress. Oh well. I like the idea of them "cheating" with Orchid. She's definitely a rushdown character .. I like how the move reinforces that while also serving as a projectile. I'm not going to lie though, I miss Laserken too :(

Spinal is going to be a "zoner" and Fulgore will be "balanced" like Jago.

I imagine they didn't want every character to have a projectile like the old ones. Orchid's Firecat is a bit of a projectile though, it reminds me of Strider's robotic cat from MVC, the way she summons it.

imo they can make her better.... i was really starting to get worried i dont like her as much compare to ki1 arcade look.... but im not worried cuz of patches... imo they can fix her up and anything else that the fans demand etc i dont like her at all except her tiger imo.
