    Just before Easter I did an audio interview with Denis Dyack of Silicon Knights.
    I work for a Norwegian radio program about gaming called “Hardcore” here in Norway and I though maybe I should make a special edition of the interview for an English audience. I did, and here you have it.

    The first part is about the history of Silicon Knights:

    The second part is about Too Human (this part got some new stuff you might not have heard about before):

    I hope you guys like it.
    If you have any questions or comment’s you can post it here or send an e-mail to hardcore@srib.no

    Yeah, sorry about that, I forgot to say that it was a damned informative look into Norse mythology. I'm getting pretty excited about this game now...

    This has to be the worst game I've played in the last 5 years, the NDA is against my human rights after the amount of mental anguish having to play this pos has caused me so I'm going to speak out and warn you all to cancel pre-orders while you still can.

    Seriously, finished it in two sittings, two sittings of repetitive combat, painful story and graphics which wouldn't of looked out of place on a last gen machine. And don't get me started on the animations which I can only describe as being done by somebody reading a copy of 'keyframe for dummies!'

    Silicon Knights.. what happened?!?

    I really don't have the words to describe how bad this game is in almost every area.

    Oh dear. Just out of curiosity, how did you get to play it and aren't you supposed to be NDA'ed?

    Nooooooooooooooooo!!!

    I was really looking forward to this, even with all of the negativity surrounding it, i just want a decent action RPG.

    /resumes waiting for Sacred 2 (which has been delayed until November -______-)

    Hmmm. This doesn't seem too promising either... I was really looking forward to this.

    Thank Blizzard for Diablo 3 announcements!

    My expectations for this were at neutral anyway:

    Turns out good = Yay!
    Turns out bad = Ah well, buy something else

    I wasn't looking forward to it.

    It looks utter shit in the videos I've seen... so incredibly bland and boring in terms of level and character design. I didn't once think the game looked remotely enticing or exciting while watching the videos. All I kept thinking was "Oh oh"...

    Well, the very fact you've mentioned the NDA proves you've broken it you tard. I'll wait for the EG review, as usual.

    The reason I say, is because I think this might be one of the games where they make sure all the pre-orders ship before the reviews get published. So just a heads up really.

    Sounds worrying. Pre-order canceled. If Piro is completely wrong, I'd be surprised.


    Edit: cheers for the heads-up.

    Seems unlikely though doesn't it? Given how early they're giving reviewers access to the game.

    Kotaku seem to suggest that it sucks quite badly also.

    Indeed, it's not just Piro waving his sword at windmills, everyone who has had early access seems less than impressed. And that's being kind.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    I'll wait for reviews to come in but as of now i'm not expecting much, i trust Pirotic's opinions on games.

    Big shame tbh, as i say i'll just have to wait for Sacred 2 and Fable 2.

    (Removed this post as it’s a bit OTT. You can read what I said in quotes though. Feel my later posts where a bit better and explain my opinon better.

    I apologise for going over the top )

    You sound like a pathetic peace of shit. May powers of Microsoft’s legal team have mercy on you.
    Lol what?

    I don't know how you can call yourself a reviewer.
    Brilliant.

    I edited my post to reflect my views a bit more but if too humans that bad I think we have a bad reviewer to go along with it.
