Thanks... This series has a special place in my heart and has lots of my childhood quarters. :)
Shadows Mode in KI has a setup where you fight an AI three times to make a shadow. As you play other matches you can upload the data on how you played to improve your shadow character, pull Shadows from other fighters to practice against, and use those Shadows in the single player mode Shadow Wars -- an XCOM-like single player component.
If you're planning on playing online then yes, I'd say you are. I don't expect much longevity for this game on PC, especially since it's a late port.
I very rarely play with randoms online just irl friends. Im mostly worried that this offer wont be there for the pc launch.
wouldn't it be better to get it on ps4 when it drops and just wait for a price you're comfortable with on pc? versus not playing at all?
I dont really want to pay for the privilege to play online, Im fine with waiting. If theres no offer of free season pass on pc though I might as well buy it on ps4 since that money difference can be put on the psn fee (to play with friends online).
