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…

Possible Solution for PS3 NAT TYPE 3 on Globe Telecom PROLINK Modems!

Long time no post...been busy with work but still gaming on the side when I have the time. One thing I have been trying to fix for practically months now is getting NAT TYPE 3 on my Playstation 3 when connected wirelessly via a Linksys WRT120N Router connected to Globe Telecom's PROLINK Modem/Router.

NAT TYPE 2 is the ideal set up to find games online easily and to connect to more players.

I'll probably update this post some time later today to clarify some a rush because I'm also working...

Here was my setup before:

Linksys WRT120N
- Has DHCP Server On
- Getting an IP address from the Globe modem of 192.168.254.x

Prolink Modem from Globe
- Apparently also a router of some kind
- The public/dynamic(?) IP address from Globe was in this device and not in the WRT120N device, as evidenced by an address that was not 192.168.x.x
- Username and password was in the Prolink device.

After reading a LOT of information online, including this one:…

The CD-R King USB Arcade Stick on the Playstation 3 - An Honest (But Not Cynical) Opinion

(*Pictures included below. I also have a picture of the BUTTON CONFIGURATION Screen for Street Fighter IV for the Playstation 3, configured for use with the CDR-King USB Arcade Stick. This will surely be useful for anyone considering to buy the CD-R King USB Arcade Stick. Mapping the buttons on the CD-R King stick can be quite tedious, with the way SFIV is set up for button mapping.)

I spent a (relatively) small amount of money on one of those generic USB Arcade Sticks that they're selling over in CD-R King (the stick cost PHP 550). The thing is, arcade sticks for the Playstation 3 have become extremely rare now that Street Fighter IV is out. Playing on the PS3 controller is workable, but gives me a sore left thumb.

It's one of the hassles of living in an 'unsupported' country that I haven't got any easy access to peripherals for game consoles. Even before SFIV came out, arcade sticks for any console here in the Philippines is extremely rare, and even if they do come…
