2Humanalypse Now, Strictly for my G.A.M.E.R.Z.

After a full day of watching the Internet explode over various aspects of Too Human's release, we felt the need to... I dunno, fan the flames or something.

For the record, Kevin's rad, and I will fight anyone who claims otherwise.
Ever since we all went nuts and bought iPhone 3Gs around here, I've become way hooked on the Facebook app. It's been pretty addictive, watching what the people that I know are up to. Usually, it's just a bunch of minor stuff, like people saying that they're going to a movie, or someone saying that he's "hella working" or something like that. This morning, I saw this posted in the feed of one Kevin Pereira:

"Too Human: Screw the Haters"

Along with that was a link to this video of Kevin talking what can only be described as "mess" about some of the reviews and reactions to Silicon Knights' new game. At some point, the whole thing started reminding me of the rap world, with its constant YouTube battles. So in the spirit of Ice-T vs. Soulja Boy--or Denis Dyack vs. NeoGAF--we ended up with the following video of our own:

  


You know, spelling it out like this probably ruins the spirit of the video a bit, but someone with no sense of humor always ends up taking this stuff seriously. So to be clear, I am not actually advocating the shooting or murder of anyone. I just find the way that Too Human has proved to be so divisive really interesting, and occasionally entertaining.

Maybe you should weigh in on the topic yourself via our Question of the Day feature. Or are you too busy playing Too Human today to even care about this mess?

Gahaha. Jeff you're a legend.

Hilarious vid. Keep them coming. Also, we need more Vinny!

Posted by Terrell

That was actually pretty funny, and a good way to send the message "Don't follow the bandwagon" when it comes to whether a game is "supposed" to score well or not.

On the Bombcast Jeff basically said he doesn't like how people are being so overly negative or overly positive to the game, and I think this is a good way to put it in perspective to all those people to show them just how silly they are being.

At first I was a little iffy if Giant Bomb could pull off a video like this without being corny or offensive but still be funny, but yeah, they succeeded. Nice Job.

Posted by MattBodega

Every week, I wonder if Giant Bomb can put out a better video than they did a week before. And every week, they manage to raise their own god damn bars.
Raise Those Bars, Giant Bomb, and Raise those BOMBS, Son!

That was classic! Awesome vids guys.

BTW, when will GB merch for sale? I gotta represent my hood y'all!

Thats the way kids say it right? God, I'm so white

Giant Bomb is pretty much the best site ever.

Posted by MisoRonery

I was half expecting some 2Pac "Hit Em Up" style hate rap, but this was just as good :)

Keep on bringin' the funny to all these mothafuckas who don't know what it is.

Jeff you're lucky to have such a badass crew. Brad is one intimidating mother fucker. And that beard just screams "back the fuck up!"

And I'm glad to see that dog fighting club or wherever you are is environmentally conscious. Those halogen light bulbs use like 1/10 the electricity of normal bulbs.

Posted by jyurakyumihawk

You guys will be getting christmas cards from Dyack this year. I have to buy this game now.


 I wanna buy the T-shirt too by the way.

Posted by Impossibilium

I had no feelings about Too Human until Dennis Dyack started talking about it last year. I might have even bought it.

Now I hate the game because Dennis Dyack just will not shut the fuck up.

Too Human ... it's a video game ... with the worst spokesman in the history of video games.

Posted by Mourne

That was the greatest video I have ever seen.

Only thing it needed was Jeff wearing a band-aid on his cheek.

Brilliant.
