Some Explanations + Answering the Killer Instincts 3 Rumour

Some Explanations

First and foremost, I really ought to explain myself over the recent kafuffle of why I haven’t been posting as frequently as usual in the past two weeks or so.

In the time that I have been studying at University (about a year and a half) I have formulated my own plan of attack on how to deal with the business end of each semester (in which I am currently in). My goal for this time has always been to complete my work as early as possible to ensure that I get plenty of free time at the end of the semester to revise for exams and just simply relax. This works well as many of my courses have major assignments instead of exams which means that this gives me the opportunity to finish the semester as early as I decide.

Over the past 2 weeks I have been busting my guts so that I can finish the lion’s share my work early and as of today I am at that stage which means no more blog neglection! All I have left with work is essentially one essay and two exams which I have roughly a month to prepare for. Pretty sweet eh?

Answering the Killer Instincts 3 Rumour

I’ve been aware of this little story for a few weeks now but it was only yesterday that I realized just how legit it was. You may be familiar with the barrage of rumors circulating the internet about the revival of Rare’s Killer Instinct franchise, well it turns out that Rare themselves have been adding to the fire and with a little help for yours truly. ^_^

A few weeks back at Microsoft’s Gamers Day, NeoGAF poster NeXuSDK took the following picture at one of Rare’s booths.

It is of a fake poster alluring to a new KI game, only problem is that the screenshots are old renders that were posted on this blog a few months ago and the accompanying text is highly suspect.

This posters appears to have started a rumour in American video game publication; Electronic Gaming Monthy in which Xbox 360 Fanboy later dismissed with reference to this article posted on my site.

I’m not really sure what to make of this. I am under the assumption that some eager KI fan could have just quickly created this and stuck it up at the Rare booth. One the other hand, Rare have been known to pull stunts like this before. What do you think?

  • I call BS on this one. It seems more fan based than anything else.
