Check out new screens for Lair...
I nearly lost my breath while looking at theses amazing screenshots!
Lair is gonna rock!
Looks good but the lighting still annoys me. Why is it so dark? Some of the details vanish because of it. At least, if they fix the framerate to a steady 30 fps it will look awesome.
only a little though, I just bought a 42" Lcd... Im about to get my moneys worth.
the graphics on this game is amazing, it really show the power of the black beast.
Let's hope it will play as good as it looks.
The gameplay bits i've seen weren't stellar at all. But I'm not issuing any judgement before i see how will the final game play.
IS it just me or this screens suck?! I have seen latest videos and game(maybe because it was in motion?) looked 5 times better. Check gametrailers and youll see. Bad screenshots, really!
wow, this game kicks asss, it looks really damn impressive!
I am sick of having to watch footage of offscreen gameplay of lair... its too dark and unimpressive. I want direct feed.
all i have seen are rubbish quality streamed videos i'd like to see some hd in game before i pass judgement
or at least like 800*600
Much as I was, I asked myself. "Which game out there is on the same scale as lair, with so much going on and looks better?"
Seriously no other Game came to mind.
We really need to stop being spoiled by delusions that everything in these games will surpass being "realistic" and start being "real".
Well at least not on such an epic scale in the first generation of games on the PS3.
Thats just my opinion I could be wrong, heh wouldn't be the first time.
Let alone the actual graphics are some of the most impressive...if you're basing your opinion on IGN or off-screen videos then you're a bit stooopid. The scale and graphics of this game can only be seen on Gametrailers direct feed. There's some moments where it looks like a CG movie (especially the worm bits). Very impressive. Locked framerate too.
I know the graphics looks good, at least in my opinion, but i really wonder how it plays. I have heard some people that played it complain about it, but probably a lot to do about that was that there was so much going on at the same time, that you could get lost in it. But who knows, this could turn out to be awesome.
snoop_dizzle, I don't think many people care about gameplay around here. Kill Zone is the most hyped and said to be one of the best looking games and yet non of us have seen actual gameplay. This game look great (What I've seen so far) but how much gameplay value it has? I'm really hoping this game meets expectation and is a AAA and an "EPIC". I have not seem much about story line, gameplay aside from the usual flighing, Cut-scene interation (Similar to Tomb Raider) where they show CGI-like scenes and ask you to PRESS 1 button to show you another cut-scene (I don't consider that gameplay).
Notice, I am saying this game will be bad.. all I am saying is that I need to see more gameplay and see if the story line keep me instrested. For me graphics are important.. but in my experience it's something I admire for 30 mins before my eye adapts to it and after focus on the actual game. (i.e. after playing Gears for a few hours... I can't tell the gun barrel releases smoke when you shoot).
where is the direct feed... I cant find it anywhere!!
Well by default we can't play a game until....we've played it. Yuh I'm not sure about the gameplay of Lair. But Factor 5 havent really gone wrong so far (previous games).
Story line and music sounds epic...I've heard a lot about the story from watching interviews with Julian...something which I doubt you have Blade - of course you wouldn't, but still you're sayiing "I don't know anything about the storyline"...well clearly you havent researched.
some of the soldiers facing the dragon would run away in fear. Every vid or screenshot ive seen has them trying to fight A DRAGON and not to many people would try that imo
lair oh lair. Hope you don't come and dissapoint for you will sadden me.
Factor5 make fair games but iv'e yet to play an incredible Factor5 game.Always amazing graphics because they know better than any developers it seems in gettng the best from hardware - it hardly suprises me that Lair is looking rather nice frankly based on this.F5 might suprise us all with Lair and finally make an AAA game but how many of us that have played F5 games really believes this to be true.We'll find out not too long from now.
i cant wait, this game is gonna be so sick.........
anuva game dat says 2 m3 (cant be dine on 360)
?'s 1: Can you Pimp your Dragon- Choose its look and color?
2: When fighting on the ground do you control the Dragon or the rider? Both perhaps?
...are like they're straight out of a CG flick ! Superb !!!
32X32 miles a stage is just humongous...its like twice the world of Oblivion, that was 16X16 km. !
You know folks !, the "fur" on those soldiers' clothing is all rendered in real time just as it was in Shadow of the Colossus...they might be the cavalry belonging to those frost-breathing 'ice dragons' we saw in the earlier trailers.
of gameplay that I've seen are pretty bad. It's a good looking game with mediocre gameplay. After 10 minutes you'll be bored. Flop in the making.
lair is gonna be so awesome........
Lair went from a must buy, to rental status once I actually saw the "gameplay" videos. It looks like Space Harrier from 1985. I thought the dragons would fight and play more "heavy handed" and realistic than just firing fireballs like a shooter; much like Space Harrier.
Also, the lighting is inconsistent in the game from what I have seen; the dragons totally contrast everything else in the game. Granted, the game is still under development, and hopefully (most likely) uniform shaders will be added last.
I think Lair will be an o.k. game, not the knockout that it appeared to be when it was announced years ago.
Graphics look very nice, no question from me on that.....BUT....the game is essentially about flying around on dragons...that might be cool for about the same length of time as Motorstorm - a week or two at the outside...meh, I'll rent it first for sure...
My biggest problem with it is the Online play. Takes too damn long to get into a race when u first log on.
Then the Host has the option of changing the race scenarios on you as he sees fit.
Unlike Resistance where a custom game can be set up and you can play it for hours without things just being flipped on you.
Motorstorm is tons of fun and i suspect after the patch is released i will be playing it a whole lot more.
Fav track dust devil.
People comment on the controls for Lair possibly spoiling the experience, I may be one of those people. But i figure if the Devs can control the the damn thing properly with some practice so will I.
Don't jack news. That's disrespectful.
