This weeks episode of IGN weekly features the much talked about Xbox 360 game, Too Human from developers Silicon Knights. With an unfavourable showing at the last E3 (due to a buggy demo code), does Too Human finally live up to all the hype?
This game looks amazing and looks crazy fun. I am getting more and more excited for Too Human. This game will be one of the best. Hopefully all 3 games will be on 360 rather than on the next console.
hard to believe this game was meant to come out on the PS1, its starting to look good though
give it a bit more polish and it might turn out to be a great game
4 player co-op will be sick.
they have come so far in a year... the graphics are simply outstanding and in my mind out do gears of war!
I can't WAIT
it alright nothing to amazing..seem boring but it will get better..the combos seem average.they tryin to copy dmc gameplay but doesnt look so good...and i think be easy to do..ill wait till i see some more footage right now is just "meh"
The graphics look decent now (yay for Unreal Engine), but the gameplay feels stiff for some reason.
Awesome, your character will be transferred throughout the trilogy.
I'm really really looking forward to this game, I have since it's beginnings for the Xbox 360, and knowing it's a trilogy is incredible.
I especially am loving the ability to build up my character and his "god like abilities" and take that online and battle. This really empowers me as a gamer to want to play it, and play it bad.
Graphically it's awesome and huge, lair my ass, this game and it's emgine have done a phenominal job of utilizing the power of the Xbox 360. There wont be anything else like it on any other system, no, not unless you can combine DMC4 and WoW and several others into one, it's just not going to happen.
Having god like abilities just blows all others away.
Not to harp on ps3's title "lair", but did you notice the ground level fighting in the video, it was horrible. It looked like fire from a ps1 game, and the ground and that fake green looking moss/grass, what was that from? It was a bad job.
I think lair will all in all be a good game but it's not what they originally promised and it's looking like a bad frame rate as well. Top all that w/no online and a short game play, start to finish and well I'm not impressed anymore. I was but now, well, I wouldn't buy it.
All I have to say about Lair is
graphics look GREAT
game play could be FUN
Have any of you ever played a Factor 5 game before?
yeah Factor 5 games are REALLY hard (fun for the most part as long as you don’t get stress out or frustrated with the damn game.) The Star Wars Rogue Squadron II and III are good examples of major frustrates that a game can be. So this makes me think good and long befor picking this game up. (BUT) For some of you I bet that these games are essay for you , so you’ll think I’m just picking on Factor 5. /and/ maybe I’M
On Too Human
number 1 on my list
Halo 3 number 2 (I still love you Halo)
We all kind of knew it, didn't we?
My interest in this game has gone up. If they can deliver the gameplay they are promising then I will be happy. RPG action adventure in a large world with Norse mythology sounds great.
The graphics dont look the best I have ever seen but if the gameplay is good and smooth then I can take a little less. Although they have plenty of time to polish this puppy so it may look quite awesome when done.
This is not a Lair thread but its gamplay footage was in the same IGN video. It too looks like a fantastic game with pretty darn nifty dragon models. To think how these awesome games are coming so early in each consoles life gives me even greater hope for video gaming future!
this game is going to be amazing!!!
I gota get that game .
I like Silicon Knights in the sense that they focused on their game... not once they mentioned the 360, it almost feel as if the game is multiplatform. on the other hand Lair developers couldn't resist doing some marketting for sony,"physics that the ps3 allows to do", "we are giving them the whole ps3 here, we doing 1080p, and the other stuff that the sixaxis controler can do" the last minute of the video is pure marketting for the ps3. why is that?
Why the need to drag Sony/PS3/another exclusive you'd like to see on the 360 into this? Jesus, you must really hate yourself for owning a 360.
@Kyur4ThePain, I never said that lair is going to be a bad game. Though lair can easly become repetitive in terms of game play (aim shoot)... Graphics are great, so I think if they add a nice story I may give this game a shot once I get a PS3; which by the way it will be because of metal gear or final fantasy not this game.
also, Kyur4ThePain.... with games like too human... I am not sure I feel that bad for being a 360 owner.
You must hate yourself for being alive.
I have high hopes for this game. This game could be the next Killer App for 360. I don't know if everybody realize that 360 is getting wave after wave of Killer Apps each month from summer, fall, and beyond. It is going to be crazy this hoilday season and in 2008 with Fable 2. I hope they tune everything up with the A.I. and the gameplay when it release.
Sony, for all we know may be greasing devs palms to make irrelevant
statements such as these.Comedy it is.Slimy marketing too.
As far as Lair is concerned,I'm sold on the wonderful full motion video,but shocked with the mediocre looking gameplay (Dynasty Warriorish).
This game is awersome. I knew they would pull this off. Good job.
I loved the video, it's great to hear so much about what they're trying to do. The rpg elements sound great great and the visuals are stunning. The frame rate still needs some work though, and I'm still iffy on the camera and controls.
Lair just lost some appeal for me, the ground fighting looked horrible and everything was brown.
Too Human looks good and the norse mythology is very exciting.
Lair looks like Magic Carpet on an old PC.
i dont think we where watching the same vid cause that game looks last gen
Lair does look last gen :P
looking good im interesyed again, but dont love the combo air juggling, why is everyone excited for dmc4 again, too human looks so much deeper
Which game?. LOL...
too human looks great, i was never really into this game but damn i've changed my mind also i cant believe theres so much amazing games coming out for the 360, i say us 360 dudes will be having the best gaming this time around no doubt about that.
heck we been having the best gaming around.
The 360 got so much games, im not talking low class games pure high class games.
Another huge seller for the 360! The REAL console of games!
This is why 360 has a chance this generation last gen , they did't have games like this. This will be one of the games I will get for my 360.
Looks absolutly awsome. I heard they're making all three games at once, so lets hope we see the whole trilogy before the next console comes out.
Way to go SK I now have to keep an eye out for this game. This should help with that E3 buz.
dude why isnt this news in the multi section its has lair for the ps3 and chrome for the wii. not 360 games. just thought i might point that out. too human looks pretty good the 1st footage i saw didnt really get me hyped but this sure has. rpg and action rolled into one with a killer storyline? sweet! lair looks just gorgeous those dragon fights look sick but i wish u could fight as a soilder also. dint really bother to waste my time on the wii game.........
Go blame Maxconsole. The text is theirs, the head is theirs, I even have not watched it that far, as someone ripped the part of Too Human for me and pointed me out the original article on that site.
Anyway...Too Human looks pretty sick. I'm sure you guys will enjoy it. :-)
damn max conole lol
Are you stupid or did you not read what mart posted 6 minutes before you did, did it take you 6 mins to type that sh*t or did you just not see what he posted?.
Anyway...that's a lame excuse by MART. Aren't you supposed to check into your stories? He admitted to not even watching the whole video. It says right there in the header of the IGN clip...(Ep 43:Too Human, Lair, Wii).
He either a) knew it was in there and did it intentionally cause he's a fanboy or b) did a bad job of researching the article. Either way, looks good on him. ;-)
This Sh*t just got real 4 PLAYER CO-OP OVER XBOX LIVE IM THERE>>>BAALLLLIIIINN N!
Add it to my must have list.
DJ you waisted a post just to tell us you have "no comment"....thats strange, especially from you. Well, anyway this game is looking great, good video and 4 player co-op is hot....this game will be awesome online, Too Human just became a must buy for me.
Honestly, the Lair footage I saw looks great too, I don't understand why any Gamer would bash that game?, yeah I thought he was doing a "sales pitch" when he started going on about how this could only be on the PS3 etc.(we've heard that before, err RFOM) but the game itself looks great....damm, we are so spoiled, this gen is going to have some great games, I have to say that M$'s library is very deep and now Too Human looks like it's shaping up to be another kick@ass game. -2007 is going to be one hell of a year!
and say no comment?
and then it messed up. So....no comment! =] Actually, my real comment's at the top. (6.1) Though, I'm surprised Feral wrote so much in response to two words. Too Human's graphics definitely got a nice improvement, but the combat system just isn't impressing me. It needs to be fast and brutal. The dude looks kickass, but the animation doesn't really fulfill that image.
Then again, they did have to rebuild the entire engine so I'm sure that's where most of their resources have gone towards.
Maybe the biggest turn-around, for a game, ever? I never heard about the 4 player co-op til now, just freakin' awesome! Too Human is a perfect example of why people cannot put too much stock into any early builds realeased by devs or leaked to the public. There are so many aspects to a game, that the early stuff doesn't do a game any justice. I'm extremely excited that SK seems to be pulling off what they said they could do all along, bravo SK! Is anybody else having a problem with keeping track of all the great games scheduled for 2007?
For anyone who was worried, the entire too human trilogy as is the mass effect trilogy by the way is exclusive to 360. Ms is publishing both trilogies.
Damn I cant wait for this game. I've been waiting for it ever since X05 when it was announced. This game is looking good as hell and is going to be another AAA title for the 360, damn there are so many. I probably wont bother buying DMC4 when I can play Too human. Its much more deeper and the moves more diverse than DMC4's repetitive button mashing.
As for Lair, it looks good but I think the gameplay is going to be subpar based on what I've seen so far.
You're the biggest fanboy ever. i feel so sorry for you ... you'll be missing some great games on ps3. i bet if you play Motorstorm it gives you goose bumps.
Can you list some of those great games pH3IId?
ok guys!! to the one that says im ying about having a Ps3 an it took forever to download just check out my PSN name GnoThe1. now I have a question. why cant you download free trials of the down-loadable games.sure you can download the FREE Demos, but what about games like FLOW or Tekken. I should be able to download these games an play a trail without paying for them.to me another advantage of XBL.but anyway im your new PS3 brother. I guess for me coming from xbox360 to PS3, the PS3 just ain't doing anything for me, I mean that WOW factor. but I guess you guys coming from PS2 to Ps3, that's where your getting your WOW from!! im downloading Def jam an Armoured core 4 on both systems to do MY OWN comparison!!
This is going to be a must have game. It looks a 100 times better than the last video that I saw of it. I hope the game play itself feels natural since we have to use the right thumbstick for the action.
Sweet I totally knew this game would come around...and now it's looking awesome, the fighting looks like GOW and DMC mixed into one, two of my favorite games so I am hopping on the Too Human train. Best thing is it's still improving graphically, they better get this at a steady 30 FPS though, that's their major problem it seems
Have you guys noticed that every time there is a 360 game with dev interviews it's about the game and not the hardware. That is what has pissed me off about Sony. Every dev is being forced to talk about the Cell, blu-ray and RSX. I don't give a sh8t. We don't need the price justification anymore. Just show me the game running and tell me about the features. In the end we all game, and the tech specs are for salesman.
