IGN got a long interview with Factor 5's president during DICE 2007
Many interesting details about Lair is revealed. Unfortunatly, gameplay footage is still from the TGS 2006 build.
Lair is shaping up to be a awesome looking game. I can't wait to try it out on a big HDTV. Everyone buy this title so we can get a sequel with online multiplayer. I'm dreaming!
cant wait also...
Yeah looks realy good...but its still a dragon game... I'm not sure if it interests me. Would like to see more of the gameplay...
Though was pleased to hear that it isn't all brown, with lush vegetation etc. Does sound like its going to look spectacular.
I know what you mean...but it does seem a refreshing change from guns and fps's lol I like new and different gameplay.
Tis very interesting watching the First Lair interview on related videos...thumbs up to the sixaxis controller - isn't just flying around, but apparently its so sensitve you can do complicated things which were orignal button mashing...
He says they didn't have the sixaxis originally and the game felt strange on the analogue sticks, but the sixaxis brought it to another level...marketting? Or dos he truly believe it? I think he truly believes it. Give it a watch, tis only 3minutes long.
games could really get interesting with the sixaxis
I think so too...It's not just side-to-side and forward and back - it has other uses, all the pitch and way stuff etc.
Also saying its been done before doen't mean anything, because they weren't at the end of the developers to use. Being on every ps3 means that every developer can design to use them, it doens't matter whether a similar accesory was available before...bringing it to the console allows for game design possibilities.
The Lair guy says that the Wii of course has the Wiimotes, but doesn't have the power. He says the 360 has the power, but doesn't have the motion control. Lair could only have been done on the ps3...etc.
I do miss the rumble though. Used to use it on Amplitude (like guitar hero, but using the gam pad and controlling all the sections of the tracks) and it rumbles with the beat to aid you to keep in time - it had a lot of uses. Look forward to it coming back.
ahhh!with playstation u`ll always get a more balance platform of sevral kinds of games.
I just watched the 1st interview and I agree with you, he does look like he genially believes the control scheme works well for this game. I am hoping that Factor 5 will release a demo of the game so we could check it out for ourself.
When is this being released? And have you any idea when any of the other exclusives are being released...
This game is set for May '07.
Cheers. I'd wish they'd update the Uk release dates on IGN - some of the games aren't even listed. I guess they don't know though. I would've thought they would be the same as the US after launch though...
Good to hear about the variety of enemies, backgrounds etc.. Sounds like it's going to be SO much more than the bridge demo released previously. (He even comments that the bridge level demo is smaller than the one in the game which is amazing!)
I like the sound of the city levels too including fire bombing runs over one of them... :-) Certainly a nice change from FPS.
Oh if anyones interested - go over to the official ps3 website and watch the Formula 1 trailer. I was watching them all, and I have to say that one blew me away, some of the effects are just wow. Even the damage physics looked spectacular, and the rain effect --- wow.
Finally more details on the gameplay. It looks very promising.
Looks really good. At first i thought this game would be a random game for dragon lovers, but after watching this video and looking a little bit closer to the background,water and dragon details it got me exited..
(and of course the little bit of gameplay they showed too).
Like CHIMERA said is good to have some different styles of games and this one is exactly that. Is shaping up really nice.. Almost there on my games to buy list... All i need is some more footage of gameplay..
