Joystiq reports: "Continuing with their week-long series, nos amis at X3F talked with Silicon Knights President Denis Dyack over some of Too Human's biggest perceived faults."
Part 2 at Joystiq.
This crap can't die out soon enough. How about we rename this place N4Dyack?
The man fought it would have been a massive hit and in his eyes its the best game ever but i don't think he sees that after wasting 10 years of his life
Wonderful idea +bubbles for such an innovative idea, just like all the innovation my game has
too human average score says enough about the game
peeww! Good thing that I activated my Anti-BS protection before I watched this interview...
"Waaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh... .*sniffle*....Waaaaaaaaaaaahhhh h"
I think if he actually answered the questions I might have watched the whole thing. Q1 Answer: We stand behind our game thank you. Q2 Answer: We stand behind our game and that's all that matters. I can already see all the rest of his answers from the first two questions he was asked. And who in their right f'n mind thinks that framerate during cutscenes isn't important? That's the only time it SHOULD matter, it's understandable to see framerate problems during the gameplay when lots of things are happening but that's inexcusable to see poor framerate and poor quality cutscenes. Too Human: 7.
Perceived faults? He still won't admit it even though the vast majority of the public is telling him the game is trash. Fix it already or shut up. But no, he is on a one man crusade to prove he is right and the masses are nothing but gaming morons.
Just like you have been on a crusade to bash before and since its release. Its as though you hate it but can't stop posting about it. weird. usually if I don't like something I tend to avoid it.
chill the crap out. It's an interview with him. I doubt you watched it (just like you ignored the other one and assumed he bashed WoW when he just said he liked EvE more), and he isn't spouting on about how his game is the best thing since sliced bread. He's defending it sure, what developer wouldn't, but he's not being an asshole about it. We get it, you don't like the game. We don't need to hear it in every thread with a "too" or a "dyack" in the title.
You mean the way you can't stop posting negative stuff about inFamous? Smell yourself. That's right, you do have a post history. You are being hypocritical. By the way, something I should have done before, here's an ignore button to the head. One more person whose useless comments I do not have to read. Don't think for a minute I am going to let up on this big fat liar Dyack either. There are not enough days in the year to slap this guy around. If you want this type of thing to stop, drive to his house and shut him up. He is his own worst enemy.
I haven't said anything about infamous... other than that it looks like crackdown mixed with AC mixed with Star Wars.
@Lazy Person I think morganfell meant dachiefs guy was making fun of inFamous.
@Robondacob Not sure what he said as blocking people makes my life better but you are correct. That was aimed squarely at chiefsman.
I called you out on your BS. Go find my trolling posts. OH thats right you can't! Here is an ignore in the head back at yea. "well I hope their is more to the game play in Infamous than what I have seen. Lightening out of your hands is cool, but could get boring after a while. Prototype on the other hand has some sick moves. Human skateboard? what else is there to say?" Is this the post you are talking about cause, I really REALLY don't see how this is trolling. AS though with you its every other post. Get over yourself!
a serious ignore button battle is happening right here! chill up guys! there's no point arguing and fighting over Too Human or Dyack! He doesn't even care and still want to push his 'not-so-good' game down everybody's throat here! Too Human is in fact not too well recieved by reviewers/gamers and everybody including Dyack himself should just accept it already. nothing anybody says will make the game any better or worst! but I think it's about time we let go of Too Human and move on. too human is not the be all end all of gaming!
I wish all arguments ended like this. People not talking to each other anymore because of ignore button.
means you're probably wrong
I respect developers a lot. They are gems who provide us with ultimate entertainment experience. But Dyack really needs to understand that there is a point when you need to stop talking & he really needs to understand that there is something wrong with his game, lets say camera or mindless stick waggling. He is just too blinded with all this. Kind of funny but I doubt anybody else is comparing Too Human to Diablo. In every interview I listen he is the one comparing the two games.
What would you like him to do? Masturbate? Blame the people that post every single developer interview by him. Not him for getting interviewed. If people posted every interview by kojima, he'd look just as bad except for the 15 fanboys on his lap sucking his ballsack.
LOL. This guy would try and put a good spin on barf if he could.
Denis Dyack = Failure
too human = biggest flop in game history
flop that is 10 year in the making. Silicon are great inside female boob, not making games.
Anyone got any ductape? because the guy is in need of some.
You forgot the gag, cement blocks, 6 feet of chain and a fast boat.
Alot of the reviews show low scores but at the same time the game can be still fun. I think the good thing about pointing out these flaws though is to make sure this doesnt happen when too human 2 comes out and that way atleast these devs know what to improve on and what they did right the first time. It is sad seeing some huge devs get critisized but at the same time, they learn from there mistakes and improve on there next game they make.
I agree I know Too Human has some really big problems and some huge faults but Ive played it to death now and enjoy it. People get so mixed up with reviews and graphics thatthey miss the point of gaming and that point is have fun for yourself buy games and play them on your own merit not everyone elses. Bottom line games were made for fun if some arnt fun to you great thats life no need to stop and waste our time with your nonsense on why the game you never played sucked or I played the demo it was awful if i realy on that I would play have the games i enjoy now. I just want to say awesome post and great approach bubbles to you. Huge flaws but walk away with a smile \the latter is all that matters.
I agree that these review generally help the developers make a better game the next. However in this particular case, because Dyack is a delusional douchebag who thinks everyone else is wrong and his game is great, it will not help!!! The guy obviously does not think his game has problems! He is in denial!
lmfao Dyack..Just shut the f*ck up man...
Denis is a d**k.
just look at him!!!(LOL)!!! first it was a kim interview every week now its this gy,10 years and u could not make a solid AAA game,.....who even approved this?!?!?!?!
I love the Xbox 360 am a huge fan and was looking forward to this title but after playing the demo the graphics are absolutly terrible and so is the gameplay its just utter rubbish!
Hope you all enjoyed this interview folks
He is just making it worse for himself. The game is a letdown and I am finding it a repetitive borefest ( I am a level 28 and have ~ 10hrs in). He should just shut up and in a month or so yap about his next game and how it will be better than this game...Someone really should put a muzzle on this dude for a few months
See, I'm in the apparent minority of people who actually actively enjoys Too Human. Even I just have to shake my head though, Dyack should really just move on and fix the issues in the game in time for the sequel.
well the issue is , if he doesnt even want to aknowledge the game's flaws and issues , how much hopes can we get that he'll actually do better next time ?
not to many 360 owners admit it when they get a crap exlusive!!! its nice to see things are changeing for the better,im a ps3 owner and when i played the haze demo i felt the same way and i let pple know what i think!!!
i don't know if haze was truely "awful"....but when i played the demo i was very underwhelmed. and for all the talking FR did before its release.........and the delays.......it ended up a stinker. so TH ended up like haze? so what......gaming goes on. maybe SK will get it right with TH2?
Please buy this game, please?
that's the reason i hate the game.
OMFG GO AWAY!
i kind of feel bad for this guy, working on it for 10 years and it gets an average score. Thats really a big waste of his life.
Get it right first off. He hasn't been working on Too Human for 10 yrs. Good God, when will this stupid rumor just die. Second, forget the metacritic scores. This will only be a waste if the game doesn't sell well. I figure this game will have done a solid 500,000 units by Sept. 1st which is decent, but not what it should have been considering it was a flagship title.
are you saying that 50 cents bullet proof was a good game then since it sold well but reviewed poorly? Give me a break. You people only spin the truth to your favor just like what dyack is doing. How can he not acknowledge the flaws in the game when everyone points them out? What a sore loser.
Umm... the quote that I was referring to was "working on it for 10 years and it gets an average score. Thats really a big waste of his life." What I was saying was that if it sells then he is not wasting his life. He made a game that sold well enough to let him make more. That is hardly wasting ones life. I have no idea how well 50cents game sold, but if it sold well enough then certainly it was not a waste of time for the developer to have made it. Wasting ones life would be spending years making a game that sold nothing and bankrupted you. That would be a true waste of life. Why don't you read a persons post and understand it before you go and attack them. Give us all a break instead! And for the record I have never said the game doesn't have its flaws. Just go flame some other post, clearly you don't have anything intelligent to offer here.
What about those of us who acknowledge that the game isn't perfect, but who enjoy it anyway?
Dyack is pulling of a PR/Marketing Clinic. All of you haters buzz around the game every time you see an interview or article... that gets it publicity. All of the defenders then jump on and begin defending the game... again more publicity. And in case you don't understand the genius of this, publicity = free marketing. Even when its bad, bad publicity is better than no publicity. Then on top of it you now have podcasters talking about the game stating "its flawed, etc... but something about it still has me playing it" Call it crappy, call it great...the more you talk about Too Human...the more Dyack smiles.
please make him stop..
can someone actually tell me what was wrong with Too Human?
I can't tell you because i never played the game, therefore I can only tell you what the reviews said. Overall they all said Too Human isn't a good game or fair game, but bad overall.
Its Sux Thats Your Answer X360 Thought Thats There Metal Gear But Thatt Did Not Happened Watch And Learn Sony Is Gonna Comebeack With A Bang So Dont Sleep
unfortunately, not many people will be able to tell you, as most people HERE have never played it. You would be better off finding a forum somewhere.
The problem with Too Human is the camera. People will scream and sputter about the controls (which work just fine) and the graphics (which are also fine) and the story (which makes sense if you have an IQ above 75 and any knowledge whatsoever about Norse mythology), but the only real problem with it is the camera. And yeah, the camera really is a pain in the ass. It's not a GREAT game by any stretch of the imagination. It's good though.
And before I forget, yeah, some of the voice acting is kinda cheesy.
I've played over 40 hours of the game. The problem is all the fanboys/websites that want the game to fail. It's not a bad game, it has a good story, a very cool & innovative control scheme that you have to give some time to learn. The game is at least a solid 7.5 in my book, but Gamespot & others would have you believe it's total trash. Now, it isnt AAA, but if you like action RPG's it's alot of fun. The problem with this game is all the morons who have NOT played it & chose to judge it & tell you how bad it is when they probably dont even own an X360 or the game. Check IGN's review, it is very accurate to the game's positives & negatives.
Why cant they stop this! Its getting really terrible. No no cares about Denis douchebag and Too terrible. Its a flopper. THE END!
N4G wtf did I just tell you about posting articles about this guy. Enough already you are flooding this site with crap.
I have nothing but respect for Denis Dyack
just LET IT GO. i DID try the demo. i played it for over an hour, using the different classes and i tried so hard to enjoy it. the game just isn't very good, dude. don't tarnish your reputation, or the reputation of Silicon Knights, because of this title. do you see Free Radical rallying about Haze? no, they've kept their trap shut, and are working on Timesplitters 4, which is sure to be a good time, like the other games in the series. Silicon Knights is a talented developer. just take this Too Human thing in stride, and move onto the next project. it's sure to be better than Too Human...IF you guys take what is being criticized about the game to heart and apply it to the new one. unfortunately, i'm not seeing this. here's another example. look at Killzone. the game was hyped to no end by the gaming media. it failed to live up to that hype due to technical issues, and some poor design choices. a lot like Too Human. instead of crossing their arms, pouting, and saying "no one understands!" Guerrilla Games hunkered down, re-evaluated their game, and judging from Killzone: Liberation, and Killzone 2, they have applied what they learned, and took into account EVERY criticism labeled at Killzone (controls, framerate, pop in, etc), and Killzone 2 is shaping up to be an AMAZING game. because GG weren't too prideful to admit that they made some big mistakes with the original Killzone. it's a shame when a developers pride and ego get in the way of them learning a lesson, and making the next game better. even David Jaffe shut up after a day or two when Calling All Cars wasn't universally praised. even though Cliffy B talks a big talk, and overall annoys the hell out of me, there's no denying the quality of Gears of War. the man can at least back up his ego with his work. the same can't be said for you, Dennis, at least at the moment. take the criticism with humility. i'm an artist. i've had my portfolio critiqued, and many a time it was NOT pretty, but you just have to develop a thick skin, and learn to absorb those criticisms and strive to do better next time. the moment you understand that you are NOT always right concerning your craft and your methods, the easier it becomes to improve at it.
Good read. I Agree to.
...He can't just accept criticism, can he?
I just found Dyack on the street corner!
LOL the sign is funny.
LOL poor bloke.
i hate to bring up HAZE (i enjoyed it briefly) But GOD DAMN! get over it already, your game got low scores. Some people will enjoy it, most won't. One thing is for sure, Bots can't bring up HAZE or LAIR after TooHuman simply because of Dyacks non stop b!tching.
A smug, intrusive, prick is what I see in dyack. His smirk is too telling. His beady eyes are honed in on one thing and one thing only, to see through the person's questions and combat each one with a point of his own. He took all this man's criticism and turned it back on him. That's a real smooth move, dyack... Maybe next time humble yourself in the presence of gamers and potential outlets for your game.
i swear to everyone his next game should be amazing if not well....
