Last week released another iconic character into the Xbox One's exclusive title 'Killer Instinct' developed by Double Helix Games. Those who have already purchased the Combo Breaker Pack or Ultra Edition of Killer Instinct will already find Spinal in their character selection.
For fans of the orinigal Killer Instinct you will notice that Spinal has taken a bit of a re-design in the way he looks. In a interview on the Xbox news site the Xbox Wire Staff asked Ken Lobb and Adam Isgreen their inspiration behind re-designing this inconic character.
Ken Lobb:Who doesn’t want to be a bad-ass pirate skeleton? Being undead and supernatural he could logically do some things which we wanted the character to do, like teleport, absorb projectiles, and more.
When asked about Spinals strength and weaknesses Ken Lobb stated:
"All strengths? OK, I see him as all of the characters in the game very well-rounded."
Adam Isgreen followed up sharing his impression with:
"Spinal makes other characters play differently, and I think that’s his biggest strength."
You can read the entire Xbox Wire Staff interview with Ken Lobb and Adam Isgreen here.
In his article, Killer Instinct: Get to Know Spinal, Vincent gives his impression to Spinal's basic controls, as well as, things like Spinal's new resource: skulls.Add a comment Add a comment

If you keep up to date on gaming news then you've probably heard the rumors flying around that Microsoft has delayed Halo 5 into 2015. It was believed that beta for Halo 5 would be apart of Halo 2: Anniversary Edition, which is set to come out November 11.
Even more exciting seems to be the rumor that Microsoft is planning to release a '1TB white Xbox One' to the public. While it is already known that Microsoft employees will get a white Xbox One, there has been no formal announcement that Microsoft will release it to the public for purchase.
Among the rumors shared it is said that this white Xbox One will not have a Blu-ray disc drive, a Bluetooth adapter, and launch dates.
Anonymous posters have also posted a picture of what appears to be a Titanfall Bundle for the Xbox One.
While all of these are just rumors still and nothing has been confirmed or denied, the concepts are exciting. What are you thoughts or views on these possible rumors? Head over the AYBOnline forums and get in on the discussion now!
