Factor 5 and Sony Computer Entertainment released another thirteen screens showing the amazing graphics of the game Lair
And so it has begun we are starting to see the new shots from the latest builds and they look incredible as expected, what you didn't think these games weren't going to look even better like Motorstorm? Over the next year you will see what is possible when things are optimized for PS3, GDC is going to be a great time for PS3 owners. Oh for anyone who's missed it Luke from 1UP has changed his tune as well he's just got to take a look at the new Ratchet and Clank "It's way better than even expected" "You know what we saw at GDC that we thought was CGI, well that ingame but running at an even better frame rate" "This is going to make people say wow" The latest 1UP podcast.
The screen shot of flying over the ocean just sold me on the game.lol Its the simple things that do it for me sometimes. The closes I have ever been to a dragon game was Breathe of Fire on SNES. lol
WOW this game is really really gorgeous, i think lair will be the game that will turn everything around for sony!
I think that screenshot 10 is probably the best. It is almost breathtaking. The ocean...the dragon and the textures on that weird creature are so "real" and amazing. WOw. Anybody think that picture 2 isn't up to the standard of the other ones...looks like an earlier build. Also I think these screens are a month old.
Question...why does it take so long for positive ps3 news to be posted? But lame negative ones of bloggers having a go at the ps3 get posted immediately?
answer 360 fanboys
but the water is the best I've ever seen. Amazing.
"Question...why does it take so long for positive ps3 news to be posted? But lame negative ones of bloggers having a go at the ps3 get posted immediately? " Question... why do you feel the need to bring up something like this? If you really cared about putting an end to fanboy flamebait comments, you'd stop posting them yourself and stop referencing them. Just my 2c. As for the screenies, it looks pretty cool. There is some rather low geometric detail, a lot of the detail is done with normal maps (and the water looks quite plastic, really), but it's still good looking. I still have rather low expectations for this one, given the rather lacklustre reception by gaming journalists after their initial playtesting a few months back, mostly concerning control issues with the SIXAXIS. Don't be surprised if this one doesn't live up to the hype, I say. I'm more looking forward to Heavenly Sword as the first killer app. Bring it on, Ninja Theory.
Why? I don't always if you've ever even read my posts. I just felt it was depressing since these screens were so impressive and they were just lying around in the back room.
I guess no one cares about these screenshots.
can somebody help me find my jaw i droped it looking at the screenshots... i mean wow!! games are looking better and better each year, kudos to developers who made this game. i hope it plays good as it look
but.... if this is the be all beat all 1080p graphics of the PS3, for me I think they just did more harm than good!! I was expecting this game to look soooo good.hopefully these are early builds.but you guys are acting like these are the best graphics you have ever seen.I think there really really nice, but not the jaw dropping gorgeous pics ya'll tyring to make them out to be!!
Picture number 10 dude, picture number 10. http://www.ps3only.nl/scree... blackmagic -I hear you on picture number 2...but why would you look at the worst one and think its what the game will look like? It's clearly from an earlier build. If you look at the best picture you see the polish they have applied. Picture number 10 includes the same creatures and the same ocean...so shame on you for looking at the worst picture.
Picture number 2 dude, picture number 2. http://www.ps3only.nl/scree... I'll judge the game when I see it actually being played at the local retail outlet. For me, that is the true indicator.
Pic #2 is stunning as well, if you compare it to any 360 game. The only thing is that the sun is at the other side of the camera. Still can you give me name of any one 360 game that features such gigantic monsters, procedural ocean waves, immense draw distances(32X32 kilometres) in one stage almost twice the size of Oblivion's world, over 1000 enemies on-screen, motion-sensitive, 1080p and all releasing within the first 6 months of conole launch ?! Nah, Right'o Dude !!! HaHaHa !!! 360 is just so past-gen.
Factor five is onto a trail of sucess... in all honesty i dont think MS fanbois would be saying this game looked so so if factor five comitted to making this game on the Xbox 360 exclusively instead of the ps3. lol!!! and they themself no this but haters will always hate... as for me this will defianately be a game i rent for a day and prolly within hours of enjoyment i go out and buy the damn thing lol!!! lair is set to be awesome. and the first true best dragon game ever made. Go Factor 5 Go!!!! this game is being released sometime in spring or summer, you can be sure this will be at GDC07. cant wait
Hm but it is just a dragon game where you fly...you can only get off your dragon for a bit, but it's all on the dragon stuff. I dunno...does look incredible though.
This in-game graphics are very good, but where is the Subsurf/NURBS Factor 5??? Why did you go away from that? That what was I liked best about Lair, and would (probably) be the first game to have that. In fact, I'm alittle dissapointed, where is all the fancy stuff they have shown us from GDC, E3 and all the other events?
What's this...please explain... oh and I watched the interview saying there's loads of stuff and creatures and environments they haven't shown us because they want it to be a suprise...maybe that's where it is...whatever you feel it's missing, cause don't really understand what you mean.
This game is gonna mean some serious competition here for us at MS, darn, there already got a game here it's gonna beat GOW in graphicall comparison, well i could always hand over a cash bribe to get the game on MS own Xbox 360, aww sh1t i forgot it's owned by SONY, darn Sony got one over on me here.
Plus 2 levels would fill a DVD. Hey Pete, since you're such a good sport, you should get a Lair tatoo. ;)
Looks AWEOSME. I would like to see this in full swing.
Full wing? Full flap? ;) Looking better. I was really getting sick of that damn bridge.
In fact, I'm working on some 3D now with subsurf.. I'll explain. I have attached an image with and without subsurf in Blender. The cube to the left has no subsurf so, it's a plain cube. The object underneath is also a cube, but is subsurfed, making/rendering the edges and object smooth, ie in this case a ball. This "cube" is subsurf level 2 of 6 in Blender. The object to the right is also a cube but also has subsurf, just with level 6 making it even more smooth. I have seen a video from GDC, if I remember correctly, where you could see where they changed a dragon from wireframe and then added faces, then added subsurf, then added textures and voila, a PS3 dragon. I have also seen some seriuosly superb lightning which I don't see anywhere here.
Do you mean the lighting that went through the dragon’s skin on its wings
I have always said that I was excited for this game these look nice
I wana see them!!!
Also that, but mostly some really neat specular and reflective visuals from the dragon body parts..
it's even more incredicble when you think about the fact that this is a game like grandtheft auto, were you are freeroming
Ive seen the game in action im not realy sure wether ill buy because ive never played a dragon game before, ill try it first. IM OUT...///"""
I would like to see "Look at this game play improvement over the last time you saw the game". Anyone can polish a screenshot.
looks great graphically , really impressive, waiting to see how it plays first though to past any real judgement on the overall game.
