Rumor has it that firmware update 1.92 for the PS3 improved the sixaxis motion controls for the game Lair. Watch this video to see for yourself if it has indeed been improved.
You just made this video huh ? Great Vid by the way.
plus my camera is fairly old but i think you can see that the controls have indeed been improved. After renting it i'm going to buy it now. People still on the fence should rent it first but after getting some play time with it the controls are easy and fun.
How does that video prove ANYTHING!?! There aren't enough consumers who have actually PLAYED the game post-1.92 patch, let alone BEFORE it. At least enough to make a just comparison.
The reason this game received such crud reviews is because of the GAMEPLAY coupled with BAD CONTROLS. I had high hopes for this game and I really wanted it as a reason to dust off my PS3, but I guess it's back to Bioshock for me. I still might check it out, but it ain't lookin' so good--especially that 4.9 blow IGN dealt to it.
This whole site kills me. Infested with creeping, crawling Playstation kids. Grow up and buy both systems like a real gamer. Then come back and tell me who you're with.
Might have to go pick this up.
Lair is 100% badass now.
lol at that Petey Pablo joint ,looks responsive enough
I just about fell out of my chair when I heard Petey Pablo! It made the gameplay jump up 10 notches!! LOL!!!
whats the muzak ?
hmm, retailers are not suppose to sell this game till today? what was official street date? mabye the firmware update was suppose to coincide with the Lair release?? maybe developer was developing the game with the new firmware dev kit all along and they ddin't see any problems at the tiem???
alot of burning questions in my mind right now
just what i said dont let reviews deny you of an awesome game. truth will be set free once you play this game. im lovin it. AAHUUUU!!
That looks annoying to play. The graphics look great though even on the crappy video you can see nice stuff happening with the wings subtly moving in the wind. I bet this game is gonna cause more wrist injuries than a night of porn and cheese doodles.
... but, I don't remember reading anywhere that flying straight and doing a few turns was any part of the problem.
In all the reviews, the problems are more with the targeting system, and when you need to do pinpoint flying/maneuvers.
(I'd also note that the response time seems very similar to the previous video posted like this.)
But anyway, neither vid demonstrates any of the types of problems that the reviewers were having... specifically one I remember was grabbing Toros off the bridge.
It definitely looks more tighter, the response time between the control and the dragon is shorter adn sharper and according to the forum posters the 180 turn comes out easier
It this is true then this game should be re-reviewd
i haven't played today but i'll try it out later
but now, time for a lil WARHAWK (right after this blunt)
see you guys online
But it allways had awesome motion controls...now they should even be better after this firmware update.
warhawk have too much sudden turn and chase. It will required a stick in order to get a lock or stay on his tail with machine gun.
I think it's rather intuitive and easy with the motion sensing. Cars ... little bit different. lol
but I just updated to 1.92 so I'll turn the option on to see how much it's improved since then. (response lag was my issue)
the update because I bought it yesterday and I was playing it and it wasn't that responsive but now after the update it makes the game way more funner to play. I suggest its a buy game on my personal tip.
I wish people would learn to READ check this link:
It states what was changed there is nothing in this update changing anything dealing with PS3 games. It's states New to 1.92:
Playability status with the PS3™ system has changed for some PlayStation®2 format titles. To check on the latest status, visit the search site for compatible titles (coming soon).
Stop it people please there nothing wrong with Lair controls and there is also no change with this update.
does NOT state theres no change in lair at all...
Are you saying thousands of people who own Lair and claim it plays better now are wrong?
The targeting system is brutal, it randomly selects the closest target to your invisible 'indicator' - which I could not understand why there isn't one. Come on F5, this is rogue squadron with dragons and we're not stupid you may as well make it a little easier to target our enemies with this brutal control scheme.
I haven't played it before the update, but just started playing it now.
I don't agree with the really bad reviews, IMO Lair gets a 7.5 but no less, no more. There are simply too many graphical and gameplay glitches to help it get any more.
However it's not overly challenging and is still pretty fun.
My biggest gripe are the controls, they can be confusing at times, and the 'radar' arrow in the top right corner is almost useless.
I would hate to have played with the controls prior to the update because they are still pretty bad.
time to play some lair, i've been playing too much warhawk and have been neglecting lair and bioshock.
