GameTrailers forum memebr thewster has kindly posted scans of latest issue of GameInformer which includes previews of MGS4, Killzone 2, Uncharted & Borderlands plus Lair review and tips, Top 50 games of E3 and more.
Uncharted looks as stunning as usual but most of MGS4 stuff was released before.
and look how that turned out, not what people expected. Don't hype games on how they look.
Difference is that Uncharted looks like Tomb Raider mixed with Gears of War, and then tied to Prince of Persia for some of those awesome swinging on walls action sequences.
If you liked Gears, and you like adventure...And you like running on walls, this game won't disappoint. Plus, Naughty Dog has excellent developer pedigree.
@boot & kigmal
have u seen the gameplay footage of Uncharted?
Early build and still great gameplay - although not perfect.
Unlike Lair, there's no doubt Uncharted won't have any major problems and unlikely to have bad reviews.
I haven't received mine yet, it's always 2 or 3 days into the month..
its nice to know Eva's going to show up, and apparently 70 some odd years old
those motion controls arent widely accepted but if u can use them then im guessing the game is gonna be good for some. Terrible for others.
When I got this issue, I was even more floored by most of the Killzone 2 pics than I have been by the Demos/ trailer footage!! The way they are posed, two of the shots almost look Advent Children quality (the one with the bandana dude pointing and especially the one containing the caption "Destructible environments are taken to a whole new level with KZ2's remarkable game engine"
I just hope this game ends up with fantastic gameplay as well, cause it would be a terrible waste of a game if it doesn't. (The whole AI is dumb in its current state worries me a bit). What's weird though is that GI is the only mag that seems to have been impressed with the AI. They claim it flanks when oportunity arises, changes cover intelligently, and rushes the player if they are out of ammo, not just automatically. That sounds pretty damn good to me, if true. Its odd GI is the only media to have this reaction to AI...did they actually play a different build??
Borderlands looks damn interesting as well I think!
Not true at all... Most sites and mags don't give ANY impressions of the AI. Just like the gameplay itself, is pretty difficult to find something about it, all we have a lot is screenshots, repeated videos and good comments on graphics...
And the few reports on the AI, specially after the playable demo on Leipzig, was mostly good...
Also, you don't have to believe me or any previewer anyway. Just got the AI aimed video of Killzone 2 last build demo on Gamevideos.com then you could take your own conclusions...
it`s great that so many amazing games are or coming on ps3. =)
...that Lair has production values so high when the game is so mediocre. Great storyline, awesome soundtrack, gorgeous graphics. But why did the game have to end up sucking? I think a lot of people on a niche will love the game for its merits, i.e. being a great "movie-like" experience. Too bad most people will not, because it won't be for everyone the most important thing it has to be: Fun. :(
They should re-release it.
(Now with analog stick controls, fixed targeting and fixed stuttering framerates, also now with more intense epic boss battles because there weren't enough in the first cut.)
& Great Scans, Nice to see some positive news, after this latest media blitz of Bad Scores.
A 7.5 for Lair. Gameinformer tell me what you were smoking!
judging by your screen-name...i'll guess *NO.
Yay for the Game Stop gamer's edge card. I don't buy magazines, however the subscription is free with discount card purchase. This issue should be a good read.
I have the mag. but whats more interesting to me is the statement from Konami.(page 22 bottom left hand side)(and it's nice that Kitaue-san, Konami North American an European head himself sad, HEY MAYBE PS3'S NOT THE RIGHT PLATFORM FOR THEM. THATS KONAMI SAYING THAT, NOT US(MS) SAYING THAT.
dont flame me, I didnt make that up, its right there in the mag plain as day look it up!! does it means anything!! NO!! YES!! MAYBE!!, who knows what the future holds!!
I'm reading it as we speak..
it will interesting in 2008, once we hear of announcemetns.
gave lair a 7.25 because they've learned how to use the sixaxis controller and actually played the game.
some poeple dont like lair go on other game site
