Xbox Live Co-Op Night August: Too Human


It should come as no surprise that this month's Xbox Live Co-Op game is going to be Too Human.  The game is set to be released on August 19th, so we'll be having our co-op night on Thursday, August 21st.

We've been covering Too Human here on Co-Optimus for quite some time, with interviews, previews, and news galore; and now it's time to finally PLAY IT.

There is a demo available so you can get an idea of how the game plays, but the basic premise of this action/RPG is combat.  The dynamic camera is very cinematic, leaving the right analog stick for attacks.  Simply point it at an enemy and your character will slide in to attack, then rotate it towards the next guy and combo it up.  The meat of the game comes from the loot system which is incredibly deep, it's an area where people constantly draw comparisons to Diablo. 

The Co-Op Experience: Play with up to 2 players online with drop-in/drop-out co-op support. The entire game was designed from the ground up for co-op including co-op specific character perks, item trading, character classes, and more.   A unique co-op combat aspect is called juggling.  One player is able to launch enemies into the air while the other can "Juggle" them with aerial combos.


If you are looking to preorder the game, we recommend Amazon.com.
