Scaling is stupid in a hack and slash.

One of the appeals of the game is to watch your character grow and destroy the enemies.

With the monsters always the same strength as you, what's the point.


I did just buy Too human and put in about an hour.

The camera does suck pretty bad, but it's fun so far.

Scaling was done in Oblivion so that the player could explore any part of the world whenever they wanted, you can't really compare Too Human and Oblivion.


You explained that far better than I did. Good job. :)

The enemies scaling to you was definitely a retarded move. There's no sense of satisfaction from leveling up because you're always going to be the same level as the monsters.

And yet, your favorite game this console generation is Oblivion, a game that features enemies that scale in level.

Oh, OK.


Yes, the enemies did scale in that game and it was one of the very few things about it I didn't like, but since the game wasn't freakishly difficult like Too Human it didn't affect me too much. I still had a very fun time with Oblivion.

True, but it doesn't hurt to not assume things.

Uh, out of all the things that you could complain about in the game you're going to complain about level scaling? How has that ever been a negative feature in a hack-and-slash game, unless the game has a large enough variety of environments (IE MMORPG-variety) to actually justify not scaling levels so that you end up killing monsters in one hit, which doesn't show anything other than the fact that you're higher level.


It's not the ONLY thing I am complaining about. I did write a REVIEW on the game, where I complained about alot of other crap. And yes, the leveling scaling annoys me because there should have been more places to fight enemies. There's only 4 levels in Too Human. It made it worse that the game was incredibly difficult and you died every few minutes. It could have been remedied somewhat by not scaling the enemies to the player. Like I said in the review, all of these thing can be pondered about and possibly fixed by Silicon Knights for the sequel.

Alright, then my point is that you are clearly in the minority, cuz most people think that game is awesome. But if you don't like it, I won't kill you for it :P It's good to have your own opinion of stuff.

I've already stated I think the game is awesome. I put metacritic there because he said the game was balls, when its clearly not.

It's definitely my favorite RPG so far this generation. I loved that game.

So with this and Tales out now, how would people rank the 360 RPGs overall?

I haven't played IU yet but I'm playing ToV which is fantastic, best Tales of game to reach our shores thus far and imo undoubtedly the best 360 RPG to date.

Are you going to play through the extra content in hard mode before reviewing it?


First, Tales of Vesperia is the best JRPG on the 360, not RPG in general. Mass Effect and Oblivion blow that game away. And I don't know if I will be playing all the extra content on hard mode or not before reviewing it. I might.

To be completely honest, I felt is was no worse than diablo and diablo 2.  Thats right, I said Too Human is to me on the same par as Diablo and Diablo 2.  Hack and Slash loot fests.  Thats what they are. Deal.


Are you kidding me? Too Human is absolutely worse in every way except graphics when compared to Diablo & Diablo 2. I can't believe you said that.

OMG what a freaking retard. He clearly has no idea how to review a videogame, hence why he is on a show where they don't review games. I didn't realize he was so stupid.


He wasn't reviewing it. He was taking some of the people to task who are going overboard in trying to slander the game, or Dyack in particular.

At least he tried to back up his points with some reasoning and logic, compared to some of the people who are running around saying :

"It's suxorz! Dyack is a homo!" and nothing else.

I thought he had valid points against Gamespot, too.


I don't think he had any valid points against Gamespot. The text review (which I have read) easily justified the 5.5/10 and every point Kevin VanOrd made in the review I agreed with, I just didn't give it quite as low of a score. And you can't compare Too Human to Kung Fu Panda because they are different genres reviewed by different reviewers. I just find it funny that someone who works for a game related company is ranting another video game related company.

Also, when did I ever say he was reviewing the game? I said he has no idea how to review one because all of those points he made at the beginning for the negatives easily justify the game being a mediocre game considering it was in development for so long.

I'm reviewing it for the site. Haven't got my copy yet, but when I do I will definitely let people know whether they can be turned off or not.

I played Vesperia for a little over an hour last night before I went to bed and Yuri is definitely the coolest main character of the series yet in my opinion. He's not a whiny little loser or an amnesiac trying to recover memories from the start (at least not yet). The voice acting so far is very good. Battle system is typical Tales, as is the setting and music. As long as I like it more than Abyss, I will be satisfied. Now if it can beat out Symphonia, then it would be a true accomplishment for that development team.
