Video: Too Human lives!


Flying well below the watchful gaze of the internet for several months now, Too Human has risen once again. IGN has a massive video preview for the game, showing off many new and undiscussed elements. In particular, the preview goes into great detail concerning the RPG elements of Too Human. Dennis Dyack and the crew from Silicon Knights reveal details on the online co-op mode as well as the deep character customization system, which includes more than 20 customizable sets of armor (with more planned as DLC). In this sense, Too Human has a Diablo-like feeling to it, which certainly isn't a bad thing. Also discussed are the combat systerm (where melee attacks are based on right stick movements) and the dynamic camera system. Viewers will also get some insight on the Norse mythology on which the game is based. All in all, the preview is about nine minutes long. Give it a watch and tell us what you think.

[Thanks, kabes]

Too Human looks very impressive and promising. My hopes for this game have dramatically risen.



....Wii in chrome, paper, plastic or whatever is still a trash ass console.

WOW!!! It looks like they have addressed and improved upon everything that made the initial E3 showing such a disaster.

Yet another excellent Xbox 360 exclusive coming down the pipes.

Never knew it had Diablo-like RPG elements to it, which is a very welcome addition. And four player co-op? SOLD.

I hate quotes like this: "Gears of War would be impossible on the PS3, because of the lack of RAM," or more recently this: "Lair would be impossible on [the 360] because of the animations [and scale]." I know you could get Lair running on the 360, because we are not so far into this generation of gaming that you might have a situation like Resident Evil 4. Resident Evil 4 was ported from Cube to PS2 and the graphics suffered a tiny bit, not much, but a little.

Looks pretty damn good to me. If it comes out this year, as people have said before me, I'm pretty much sold.

Boy, they really are overcompensating for the first wave of bad vibes.

Constant quotes like "...trying to get a true convergence in alot of the philosophies that we've been thinking about for Too Human since we started started thinking about it so long ago."

What on earth does that mean?

I'd be amazed if this wasn't anything other than a glammed up hack and slash experience.

I feel sorry for them because hyping the game without being particularly specific means this game has got to be more than just a "solid experience" to sell strongly.

You are right im sure that lair would run fine on a xbox 360 as gears would run fine on a ps3 even if the ram shortage is true. Im sure they could work something out there is no game that cant be done on anything else thats like saying the ipod can play a song better than (insert mp3 player here). Im sure that lair would run smoother on ps3 being built for it and im sure gears would run best on 360 being built for it but saying it cant run is ridiculous.
