How to play the TOO HUMAN Demo


Earlier in Pinoyxbox I gave impressions on the Too Human demo and I wasn't really too thrilled with the controls. It's hard to believe that Microsoft/Silicon Knights put a lot into the game and it didn't immediately make sense to me. So I decided to give it one last shot, and after my third try, I finally figured it out.


So I gave this game ONE MORE CHANCE and tried it for the THIRD TIME. My wife was convincing me to give it another shot, and on my third round I finally figured out how to play this game.


1. Let go/stop thinking of the camera. If your player's face is facing towards you, press LB. The camera 'Strategic' seems to be the best option.

2. Now, when you see a mob of monsters, press TOWARDS the enemy that you want to attack with the RIGHT THUMBSTICK. This will cause Baldur to rush towards that enemy target. For instance, if the enemy is north east, point the right thumbstick North East.

You'll see Baldur rush towards the enemy.

Now, don't let go of that direction since you're telling the game, this is the target you want to kill.

3. Now while you're fighting that enemy, you use the LEFT THUMBSTICK (yes, the left thumbstick) to control your sword swinging. Try various pushes on the left thumbstick while pointing on your target with the RIGHT THUMBSTICK.

Again, note that the swinging of your weapon is controlled by your LEFT THUMBSTICK.

4. To switch to a DIFFERENT TARGET, press a direction on the RIGHT THUMBSTICK to the target that you want to kill. Then again, control your attack with the LEFT THUMBSTICK.

5. There are more interesting combinations. To unleash something like a FIREBALL attack, press UP on BOTH THUMBSTICKS (Or, essentially press both thumbsticks TOWARDS the ENEMY that you want to hit with a fireball).

6. After a combo, press RB to unleash a super attack of some kind.

7. To fight a troll (the big monster thing), try jumping, press the right thumbstick in the direction of the troll, then swing your sword with the left thumbstick.

8. To execute a troll killing move, jump on the back of the troll with A, then press the RIGHT THUMBSTICK LEFT, and the LEFT THUMBSTICK RIGHT, like this : ----> <----- That should execute an 'execution move' on your enemy. So there you have it, how to play TOO HUMAN. The controls are very different from any other action game I've played. Seems worth a shot now....and the attacks I got from actually controlling this game right made the game a bit more fun than before. I'm highly likely to pick this game up.

For more control instructions, check the ADVANCED CONTROLS menu in the PAUSE menu.

And don't forget to check out your EQUIPMENT. Press RT to shift through all the various equipment you can put on your character.

Nice game, now it does feel like Diablo II!

Gamers based in the Philippines: How to get in Xbox Live

NOTE: This article has recently been updated (as of August 12, 2006). Singapore no longer lets you input '00000' as your zip code. Please see below for alternate zip codes.

So you're a Filipino living in the Philippines with a brand-spanking new Xbox 360. You've heard about all the wonderful stories on Xbox Live. You happen to have a pretty good broadband connection. One day, you try out the Xbox Live sign-up options on your 360, and you find out to your dismay that your country is NOT listed. What do you do?

Now, you can probably enjoy your 360 without live at all, but I have to tell you: YOU ARE MISSING OUT. As Peter Moore said in the recent MS Press Conference: "Having your 360 connected to Xbox Live is as vital as having your computer connected to the Internet".

He is so damned right.

I've been playing on Xbox Live for almost a year now (both on my original Xbox and the Xbox 360). Essentially I found out all of this with a little bit of research, a little…

Xbox One - System / Games general review

We picked up a [kinect-less] Xbox One a few weeks ago and have been putting it through its paces. Overall, right now I feel pretty good about this console. But I have to admit, the first experience of buying it is not very good. I'll go with the BAD news first. But do note that it isn't all bad news....

- The first time you bring it home, the console can't work without Internet. That's because it needs an absolutely-unoverrideable mandatory update. Basically, if you get this for your birthday and it's 7PM, expect to actually play games on it around a day or so later, depending on your internet speed.

- The first patch I got for it was around 800MB. This number might have changed by the time of this writing.

- All the launch games now have accumulated patches/updates over 16+ GB in size. Not just Dead Rising 3, which has been reported widely in the media. Even Forza 5.

- My internet at home is PLDT 3Mbps; managed to get all the updates pretty quickly....that's a…

E3 2015 Conferences from the Big Three - My thoughts


- They get a lot of points from me for actually announcing games that will be out in 2015.
- The Backwards Compatibility update is a huge surprise that I absolutely did not expect. Having BC is difficult and expensive to do, but somehow MS managed to do it, which leads me to believe the solution they found is an inexpensive one if they've decided it's practical to do QA work for the Xbox 360s gigantic library of games and make them all work on the Xbox One. If it was too complicated or expensive they probably wouldn't have bothered. But since they did, I think we're going to see full BC some time soon for all games. It's only a matter of time.
- Halo 5 looked fantastic, but 343 has a lot of work to do to restore faith, after the horrific launch of the Halo Master Chief Collection. I think they can do it, and I'd imagine they're certainly motivated now. If they screw this one up....MS might reconsider forming a new team to handle the Halo franchis…
