Until they started making games for Activision and Konami, SK was the coolest, baddest development house on the planet. Y'all remember Blood Omen for PSX? The game was dope. For it alone they deserve our continuing respect. So don't fuck with them. Maybe they still got some genius inside. Too Human was an ambitious game that fell flat. But it had some cool ideas. Let's cheer this news.
I didn't think this game was horrible.. The gameplay itself needed a lot more worked, it felt like something that had been in development for a few months, not years, but if they fixed up the mechanics and the loot grinding system then it could at least be decent. The cyber-norse style and lore was interesting enough and definitely worth continuing, in my opinion.
" And so they should. Excellent, underrated game. "Pretty much this. I don't understand the hate for it. I thought it was a fun co-op game. I wouldn't say "excellent", and I didn't buy it, but it was definitely worth the rest. You can pick it up for under 10 bucks used at gamestop, and its definitely worth that.
The question is whether or not anyone is looking forward to a Too Human sequel. How good or poor the original was is debatable, but I don't find too many gamers wishing for a follow up to the original. Sure, we could all change our minds if it turned out to be awesome, but that's a pretty risky investment to make on a questionable property. Dyack would probably get a better response if he said there will be an Eternal Darkness sequel.
What? Silicon Knights still exist? How is that even possible? They must be a skeleton company, hanging on solely for the purposes of suing epic games. Are they actually making anything? What have they been doing this whole time? Thinking about how great it would be to make Too Human 2: Too Much Human!?
Dyack has gone off the deep end. I'm sorry, but.... actually, wait, scratch that, I'm not sorry, but the fact is that no one except crazy people want a sequel to Too Human. If they are seriously considering putting all their resources into resurrecting a dead franchise no one liked, then they better be prepared to go bankrupt, because almost no one will buy the damn game.
I was really, really excited for Too Human...but it wasn't good. At all. I played all the way through and at no point was the gun play that great, the control scheme was...meh and the graphics were...passable, I suppose? The only thing that really got me into it was the storyline, but I'm a sucker for modern reinterpretations of ancient mythology (and the Beowulf legend is sweet). But agreed: I'd rather see a "remake" or Beyond Good and Evil (HD) treatment of Eternal Darkness than more Too Human. Also, "You know, there's very public litigation around that." Really? I mean...really? A: Yes, you're suing Epic and in the mean time, they've turned out, let's see...3 AAA best sellers? and B: What, as opposed to private litigation in the Secret Star Chamber for Private, Really Cool Wealthy People Only Litigation Courts?
"I bet that Too Human would have sold better if Dyack would have kept his mouth shut before Too Human came out."I'm with you there. He was talking up the story but that was by far the worst part.
I'm not going to be as pumped to play this one because most likely It will be another 5 years until this second game comes out. However I'm pretty happy to hear they are still "trying" to finish this game up. Has potential I enjoyed and played a good 40hours of the first one. Camera and some bugs where the worst for me.
