While reactions have been mixed since Too Human's release, Silicon Knights president Denis Dyack told X3F in a post game release interview that the team from St. Catharine's, Canada, couldn't be happier with the final product. Controversy aside, Too Human debuted strong and continued sales only solidifies that the previously announced sequels are still in the works. That Valkyrie death animation can still fall in a well and die, though. Just saying.

I could sell you the one I got plus my autographed copy of Too Human when I picked it up from my local EB Games in the hometown of Silicon Knights. :P

Couldn't be happier? C'mon. Wouldn't it have been a good idea to include a "Loading..." message during the Valkyrie scene so people actually realized that it was a loading screen and not just some torturous video you have to watch when you die? Couldn't be happier... That doesn't give me much hope for the second Too Human... All the game testers for Too Human should be fired.

I thought it was given that it's just a torturous video you have to watch when you die since all that happens afterwards is I'm respawned right back in the same area that's already loaded.

Well Dyack said it could have been a boring loading screen or a [boring] video of the Valkyrie. So maybe he was lying. I don't know.

Lulz all they were doing was expressing there opinion on a game that has MANY faults and was hyped as a great game for your console

I don't understand what there is to load - as has been said, you are respawned straight back where you died for the most part... all of that is in memory, they just have to reset your health bar and lop some points off your equipment.
I suppose I should relax now I've traded this game in for the infinitely superior Tales Of Vesperia, but it makes my blood boil.

Comments like the both of you annoy the absolute piss out of me... SCREW BEING POLITICALLY CORRECT to save your feelings.
WHO THE F**K CARES YOU DIDN'T LIKE IT! Seriously, are either of YOU the benchmark for gaming?? Is it because you're a 20 something male and you SHOULD be the target demo that you feel YOU represent the entire demo??
Get off your high horse. And for the record, I do NOT like sports games. I'd rather play Bomberman Act Zero than play Madden or NHL... I DON'T LIKE SPORTS GAMES YET I'M IN THE DEMO... soo, ALL sports games aren't worth it.
Shallow assholes are what you are.

Mr. Ddogg, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Hey, wasn't that a quote from Old School?

Oh god, ANOTHER dipshit on his high horse. Self-proclaimed righteous assholes such as yourself deserve nothing less than a good crotch punch or drop-kick.
It was SO incoherent because you obviously had some text-to-speech reader if you heard it from this blog and didn't read it.
You rankeded my writings up there with drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana ("Everyone in this room is now dumber...")... and then you try to pawn it off as "bad".
Oh, by the way, don't assume everyone is using a text-to-speech converter like yourself either dipshit ("Everyone in this room is now dumber for having LISTENED to it")

Great news. Love the game.Still playing the hell out of it and can't wait for the follow ups.
9-12-2008 @ 10:33AM
I played the whole demo through (almost a whole hour is quite nice for a demo) but I have to say that I'm holding out hope for a patch that lets you skip the Valkyrie scene and maybe make the targeting actually work and the melee-attacks more fluid... or at least precise.
I'm afraid it won't happen though. Maybe my wait will at least get me a price drop...

yeah that made no sense d dogg. isnt this what comments are for, giving your opinion about something?
9-12-2008 @ 11:18AM
Some well deserved respect for Too Human. It needed it with all the bad press and it being a niche (IMHO) game. This game is not for everyone. Some people don't get it. It's an action/RPG like Jade Empire or Mass Effect.
It has many flaws but I've been playing the heck out of it since release. 2 player online is fun as hell, when the other person knows his/her roll and plays to their characters strengths. Let's hope the drop-off won't be to bad. 33,053 2nd week so far.
This game franchise has so much future potential. If SK polishes Too Human 2 & 3 up, it will go down as one of this generations classics. Mark my words.

Game is awesome, I am currently trying to get epic armors for my Champ and Bezerker. Wish more people I know liked it so I had more people to play with.
Oh well you cant please everyone.

Am I the only way that can tell this is a Xav post just by how "mean" it reads?
