Title: Glacius Character Transformation
Post by: CXK on July 12, 2013, 05:58:33 PM
I thought I'd post the different looks of Glacius over the years.

I prefer the newest (final KI3) design. He looks like a menacing terrestrial being made of ice! And I love it. ^^

I'm giving my vote for the KI3 Final Glacius. I mean look at him, he actually looks like an alien now.

I agree.  I loved Glacius in the original game.  I thought he looked really cool but this new one is looking quite amazing.  It's got to be nice for Double Helix to see people actually preferring the new model to the original.

the original glacius was a little too much like t-1000! the new one is totally unique.

I think that out of all the stages so far Glacius stage looks amazing. With his huge wrecked ship in the background, all the snow and ice - gives a very "The Thing" vibe. Only instead of a formless, sick looking alien we have a beastly looking Glacius.

I agree.  I love that you can hear the music in the background, it sounds similar to the original!

I like Glacius's original KI design over his KI2 incarnation. However I really like this new Glacius design over all. Really brings out the extraterrestrial origins in the character in my opinion.

Looking at his E3 pic and the screenshot, his head seems to have changed a lot.  Maybe its just a weird angle from the E3 shot.

I think that the E3 Glacius is more of a "placeholder" model, because now he is way more detailed and half transparent with insides and all that.

He looks a lot better now.  Does anyone think his moves look too powerful?  He's got a lot of range in his attacks.  I hope he wont be annoying to fight against.

I think this is the best he's looked, but that's just the evolution of fighters over the years. His combos look like they require a good deal of execution.

There is always a way to open up a distance based character :-)

Having to choose from the four I'm going to go with the final approved model.
 Back in the 90's all the KI models had that body-building-macho look, even Saberwolf (like Jago) had a the remains of some shirt that ripped from his chest.
Glacius looked very human like, almost non-threatening.

The new Glacius from the recent video was a change that needed to be done. His moves and combos look really dark and scary, and this is what KI is all about.

Good job DH!

Hey, what's up The Incubus Lord! To be honest I didn't notice. Actually now that you mention it. Maybe calling Glacius an Alien might be better.

I'm not feeling the new character it's not Glacius at all it would of been great as another character Rare would of never done this Capcom would never do this to Ryu ASW would never do this to Sol Badguy
Ryu & Sol Badguy still look the same after all these years that's how you do it

As much as the original was my second favorite character in the first Killer Instinct and I adored his awesome look, this new KI Glacius was jaw dropping, they made him look very creepy with his emotionless face and slow and steady movement. The height also looks great, while yes hes slim and i prefer that because big bulky Aliens don't look as threatening.

He looks deceptively fragile, but clearly is not.

So you want KI to be like Street Fighter or Guilty Gear and keep the same designs til they become stale? no thanks.

I've said it a million times over at DH I'll say it again, Glacius is a group of Icy Alien beings dubbed Glacius by Ultratech. Not a single one of them were ever the same exact alien so this is no surprise to me. Besides how are you going to complain as if KI2 Glacius even looks remotely the same as KI1 Glacius, that was a pretty huge redesign imo if it can even be called that. In fact no this is not a redesign just like KI2 Glacius wasn't a redesign, I definitely betting this is a new character named Glacius just the same as before.

If that doesn't tickle your fancy DH is considering classic skins.
Title: Re: Glacius Character Transformation
Post by: GameMasterGuy on July 16, 2013, 02:44:24 AM
I'm somewhat hoping DH doesn't follow through with that; sure, some classic characters like Fulgore still look great, but when you take the nostalgia goggles off Cinder is nothing more than a human shaped orange and yellow blob.

It kind of makes me wonder what they'll do with his new design. I think classic skins should be in though, it wouldn't hurt ultimately and it'd quiet a least majority of the whining over at DH.

I agree with you, you dont go making such drastic changes like this, from a morphing ice alien to an alien in an ice suit that really doesnt resemble Glacius.

Yes keep the same designs like SF & GG and thats why there still popular i haven't heard the word stale and those games connected yet SF is still the #1 fighting game in the world with those same designs and i have seen more hype and talk about the new GG than the new KI with it's still same designs and only showed 2 characters and no release date the fighting games with stale designs died back in the 90's bro

Yeah, those series have also had plenty of games and grew over time, KI hasn't had any of that and you're still missing the point. You're complaining about the most changed character in KI. Look at how different KI2 Glacius is to KI1 glacius, it's not as drastic as current Glacius but it's a bigger change than anyone else in the games got. This is a game that changed designs in the 2nd game, so what's the complaint really? You talk about keeping it the same but what design do they take after then? KI1 or KI2? Some people like KI1 Glacius much better than they do KI2 Glacius so which one is more iconic to him? My answer, neither because they're not the same character, they share the same name and a couple of moves and that's it. How am I even explaining the differences between the two to a Glacius fan?

I have to disagree.

KI was popular and successful because it's uniqueness.
Back in the older days Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat were the
top fighting games in the arcades.
Once Killer Instinct was introduced I remember how much of an impact it had. The old KI was the best fighting game and it's still is
In my opinion because it brought something different to the table.

If you want KI successful again you have to find out what has changed over the years in fighting games. Remember when a game is made it has to appeal to everyone not just the old fans from the 90's.
In my opinion the hardest decision would be to completely re-design the characters because of the serious fan base that it achieved. A perfect example is how Michael Bay had the balls to change how Transformers look forever.

Remember, KI hasn't been around for a really long time, almost 20 years!
So how do you bring a new KI that has a good chance to attract a lot of fighting gamers? You keep the same ingredients that made tbe old KI such a great game, you keep some old characters, the whole "feel" of the game has to be there, improve the characters overall look but not changing what made each character unique.

I prob. typed way too much here but do you get my drift? Street Fighter and MK are great games and it's once again time to put those games to sleep, KI is back!!
Title: Re: Glacius Character Transformation
Post by: GameMasterGuy on July 16, 2013, 03:34:14 PM
I understand perfectly. SF's strong suit is refinement, KI's is being unique. SF is the "same" because it brings back the old stuff with improvements and rebalances, whereas to KI needs to stay fresh so it redesigns characters and adds new systems.

Am I the only one that doesn't like this so far?  They said in the video that his "suit" allows his floating and powers.  He never had a suit in the original and was just an alien.  I'm just not floored by what I see so far.

Just look how awesome he looks maaaan, so much detail and I love how he suits his stage now, older Glacius kinda' never did that IMO.

I'm not digging the suit thing either, I would've just preferred that this specific glacius can jump higher and defy gravity. It's like I mentioned before this could be a glacius of a different class from their home planet. It's not too far fetched that a being that can solidify and liquify himself can also float or jump higher than the average earth being.

Well he doesn't fly he just has less gravity in his jump basically, which is a good thing. I was totally hoping the whole intro thing was just aesthetic and not part of his fighting. I guess the best comparison to give him is Dhalsim.
Title: Re: Glacius Character Transformation
Post by: GameMasterGuy on July 16, 2013, 11:06:56 PM
I can see the resemblance and while the moves seem to work the same way on the surface, Dhalsim's fireball is more for trapping and starting combos, whereas Glacius's one (iceball?) does a significant amount of damage on its own. Likewise, Dhalsim's arm stretch is a very unsafe move and has a huge punishable hitbox, whereas Glacius's teleport punch seems to have minimal startup and has a gap between the attack's hitbox and Glacius's hitbox itself. Glacius in general is a lot safer to play as once you get into your range, but with no backwards teleport getting into that zone can be pretty tough, so he'll have to focus more on knocking the opponent down than actual damage, that way he can have time to back up into his safe spot.

i LOVE his art....

i would like to see a touch more frost on the chest and face though as per KI2...

other than that hes pretty perfect!!! i cant wait to see more!

OH ONE MORE THING... when he gets killed and falls over he shouldnt just get up onto his feat he should liquidize and reform vertically from the legs up... but like the old T2 from terminator.

i think that would be terrifying rather than looking like a drunk getting up....lol

also the balls he hits you with (ice balls) id prf if they were a bit more spiky.. and savage... they dont have to be round they could be irregular uneven and just sharp in shape??

Thats the problem, they have changed him from an ice alien who could morph (ala T2) to an alien who is in a suit that allows him to manipulate ice. They could have made him their own without totally changing who Glacius is.

Post by: DeadpoolingRiptor on July 17, 2013, 10:20:14 AM
I think people are not getting the point of the suit. The suit allows him to control Ice and bend it to his will. Think of it like a suit that enhances his abilities, he still has the morphing ability as you see with puddle punch but he's also able to create weapons and items at any given time due to his suit, normal Glacius couldn't do that, he had to make something outta' his own body to do so.

He's like a Soldier class of Glacius, with a suit that empowers him and he seems way more skilled in combat unlike the others.

Again your missing the point, look at his new moves, he creates Ice shards from stomping on the ground and a huge lance and so on.

I see that as a more weaponized Glacius myself... and as I said he looks far more advanced in combat then the other who seemed to fight like an Alien street thug.

Ok, your refering to the new moves, even with the other Glacius they could have implemented them instead of him standing there tapping his foot on the ground looking like he is about to pee his pants.

Think of it like a suit that enhances his abilities, he still has the morphing ability as you see with puddle punch but he's also able to create weapons and items at any given time due to his suit, normal Glacius couldn't do that, he had to make something outta' his own body to do so.

He's like a Soldier class of Glacius, with a suit that empowers him and he seems way more skilled in combat unlike the others.

You have no idea what your talking about, the ice alien Glacius could do that.

No he couldn't, he was never able to make Ice weapons and projectiles, he used his own body to make weapons...

Which in turns means HE is the one making them.

Again your missing the point, look at his new moves, he creates Ice shards from stomping on the ground and a huge lance and so on.

I see that as a more weaponized Glacius myself... and as I said he looks far more advanced in combat then the other who seemed to fight like an Alien street thug.

Ok, your refering to the new moves, even with the other Glacius they could have implemented them instead of him standing there tapping his foot on the ground looking like he is about to pee his pants.

Remember the time difference, but hey its fine these days for an Alien to throw in a headbutt and some boxing hooks...

Lets also mention how akward it looked when he is getting combo broke from distance...
Fighting games put gameplay over making visual sense, take SF4 allowing you to defy gravity and magnetize your feet to the ground in the middle of a DP when you FADC into Ultras.

Remember his roots how about that? Let’s take Deadpool turn him into a dry humored chubby british chick then.  Its ok though because she wears the costume and can use his weapons right?

While they defy gravity a bit visually they don’t look nearly as awkward the transition is logical, something Capcom has always been very good at is fluid animations.
