PS3 Poll Police: Is Lair still worth it or not?

The title, mixing dragons and death in what should be a heavy-metal-like winning combination, has been talked up over the past year and a half to be the first title to truly showcase the PS3's ability as well as new and original IPs to come. So, the Poll Police charge you with answering the following poll: despite reviews, would you still pick up Lair?

That EGM review sure created some serious negative buzz around Lair!

"Is Lair still worth it or not" is a bit unfair IMO since there's been one real negative review so far and we have GamePro's decent 7.5 and Play's good 9.

"That EGM review sure created some serious negative buzz around Lair!"

That's what Xbots at joke gaming sites like 1Up/EGM do.

Everyone who has played it says it looks insane at 1080p and is incredibly fun to play flying a dragon around in an incredibly detailed and alive world. And the controls are spot on.

A PS3 game that is 1080p and an entire graphics generation ahead of anything on the Xbox must be attacked because it makes a mockery of every bit of stupid BS about the power of Dreamcast 360.

All 3 entities are owned by CNET (EGM is published by Ziff- Davis which is owned by CNET).

So expect a poor review of Lair from GS. And when it comes out (I expect a 7.5 or less) please don't say 'OMG even gamespot gave Lair a bad review.' Because EGM has an almost institutionalized, built-in influence over Gamespot (the 'institution' being CNET the company). And vice versa. In fact, EGM editors used to post reviews on gamespot way back in the day.

Red did you post this? Because who ever did is the worst contributor in the world. A poll is not news, a forum post is not news, Amazon is not news, a rumor with zero proof from a no name site is not news, some random guys blog is not news

at 1080p @ 30fps it is just mazing and make any x360 game look like a wii game

Each model, Worch claimed, contained somewhere between 100,000 and 170,000 triangles. Each had a bunch of other special maps and lighting applied, and the main character was built up with "over ten textures". He compared this to an estimated 10,000 for characters in Gears of War and other recent high-res games. The high-res models, meanwhile, that got dithered down to produce the in-game models, ran up around 5,000,000 triangles.

I meant no offence to site and users and we had many other polls posted here and PS3 Poll Police has been posted more than once ( http://www.n4g.com/gaming/N... ) and I don't think it's a bad thing. I saw the tip and posted the story. I didn't mean disrespect to the site or any of its members. It's a good question IMO (Lair & reviews...) and thought why not post it?

Odion3545d ago

well your not helping to improve this site, there are rules on what you can contribute for a reason, just because some console nuts some how get another poll through doesn't give you the green light to do it.

A small poll sampling from one website isn't news, this would be better suited in the forums

Kleptic3545d ago

Odion why do you care?..."improve this site"?...how does this poll hurt it?...you don't have to read every link nailed on the wall...

9/10 times when there is PS3 news that you would think "improve[s] this site" you are in it just firetrucking away...

personally...this was decent for me in finding out what some other people thought about Lair...there are no opinions or anything pushed on the reader...its just a link to vote on how you feel about the game still...and then see the results from others...big deal...some of you people make such a big deal out of what is "news" or not, when the benefit of this site runs way deeper than just collaging all the major news in the industry (that is basically what every other gaming site does anyway)...

for some reason i think if this was an article about how people still feel about Halo 3, your tone would have came off entirely differently...

UJUSTLOSTONE3545d ago

he's just hating
obviously if someone tipsed it, it was of some interest to someone. I for one know that I was interested to see how some of the public voted. I still have faith in this game, and it was nice to see that others did too.

MK you didn't hurt this site in anyway. Opionated Fanboy posts are what hurt the site. As well as opinionated people who think they have the right to tell someone what they think is news, and what isn't.

Bubble for you Mr. Red

and I'm out

your money is better spent on panzer dragoon for sega saturn off of ebay than this game

MACHone3545d ago

Admittedly, Panzer Dragoon was a great game, but how can you pass judgement on Lair when you haven't even played it? So EGM gave it some crappy scores, so what? If EGM gave suicide a good review, would you pop some pills?

Bathyj3545d ago

Because that all he ever says. Panzer Dragoon, Panzer Dragoon. I prefer my Dragons on rails rather than having 100's of acre to free roam on.

nasim3545d ago

LAIR is wayyyy better than you GALO 3 and MASS EFECT with LOW POLY flying aliens

LAIR is a must buy for all of us.

no one trusts that GAYGM review of 1 year OLD BUILD

LAIR got 9/10 on PLAY and it would be getting 9 from many unbiased websites

darkequitus3545d ago

the overgrown C8CK returns. Talk about any game and you can's help brining up Halo. you are a t*sser and a waste of human resources. Do us all a favour. Freak. Listing fourthcoming games and being a fanboy chocolate starfish does not further the topic a**hole!

larry0073545d ago

shut up u trash box fanboys.

ur galo 3 and mass effect look like wii games and you trash LAIR .

each character in LAIR has like 10x more poly than each character in GEARS

Each model, Worch claimed, contained somewhere between 100,000 and 170,000 triangles. Each had a bunch of other special maps and lighting applied, and the main character was built up with "over ten textures". He compared this to an estimated 10,000 for characters in Gears of War and other recent high-res games.

Zhuk3544d ago

because I was excited for this game because I love the Panzer Dragoon series and I wanted something to match its brilliance, now everyone knows that Lair is crap and not worth my time

The Wood3544d ago

you should add every 360 owner that hates everything Sony divide that by those who have actually played it including yourself times that by the amount of fear and envy and violla you get a big total of 8 1 20 5.

geese, silly reviewers and people like yourself may try and stop people buying the game but when its out the people will see for themselves. You will believe anything you are told if it supports your hate and it seems your just pissed because Sony killed your dreamcast and has its sights firmly set on attacking the 360 on ALL fronts. Dragons have evolved like bathy said. Bet you still just luuurv space harrier huh.

day 1 purchase for me
