GameRevolver.com give us a brief synopsis of the road to come for the PS3.
"Given the rocky road that Sony has endured since the launch of the PS3, the system is finally about to see its turning point."
The era of good next gen games.
ROTGLMFAO COPTER!!!!! Hold on, i need a second to recover from that.
their cartoon games like HALO 3 and Mass effect (with liliput aliens) are what they have on a low powered and defective x360
yet they rant about ULTRA REALISTIC ps3 games
...but that is the goofiest article/post I've read in a long time, and whoever referred it to N4G should be slapped. The author is claiming that Lair (averaging 61% on Gamerankings.com and 58 on Metacritic.com) ushers in the Golden Age of PS3 gaming? Har. And then he backs this up by listing 5 of these "AAA" titles that will make PS3 the real deal. Only problem with this argument? Besides Heavenly Sword, the remaining 4 titles (Medal of Honor: Airborne, Guitar Hero III, Assasins Creed and Rock Band) that the author uses to illustrate are released day and date with the 360 (and will likely run smoother/look better). Again, not picking on PS3 so much here as bashing this rediculous article, and any fanboy who would try and use such tripe as fuel....
Ninja Gaiden Sigma or Warhawk seem like better candidates for turning points for ps3's success. Or Future Releases of UT3 or Uncharted...seriously how is it you get a success story from Lair that thing is plagued with bad news. The remote play feature is cool 2 see though.
I think heavenly sword should be in there as well. There's a whole lot of PS fans that are waiting for an action hack n slash game just like it. I know I'm one of em. Other then that ... warhawk for sure. Drakes forture and UT 3 are going to be huge as well. Then there's 2008. It looks pretty good from here on out. I just wouldn't call Lair my turning point.
warhawk would be my pick as well but i do agree i think they can only go up from here for sony i mean games that people actually want are coming out and big titles; but regardless of what happens thou i am glad i have one............sonyfan!
Hehe, the media is so confused about this game. I still think the media was being really harsh about the controls. It's funny how Lair would be awesome if it was for the Wii, but for the PS3 it's just gimmicky and difficult to control. I'm sold and picking this game up tonight
If the fanboys at sites like EGM and 1UP and others that wanted to trash this game so badly had just played it smart and handed out the usual 6/10 or even 7/10 scores none of this free publicity Lair is getting would have happened.
Instead they were greedy and went for the silly 4 or 5/10 type scores mixed with the glowing reviews from people who actually have the game is making all sorts of people who weren't interested in the game before now want to get the game themselves to see what it is like.
Not only have the mostly Microsoft friendly or linked sites not really done any damage to the game they have given the gaming world a good idea of what a complete and utter joke game 'reviews' really are.
Nothing but a cesspool of bitter and hateful little punks lashing out at platforms and genres and developers they personally hate while hyping their own personal pet platforms and titles.
Lair does bring in the era of real next gen gaming:
* 1080p graphics for your brand new 1080p sets along with your 1080p BluRay movies
* 25/50 gig game sizes. Bye bye DVD games and developers have moved on to bigger and better formats
* Motion controls. Controller continue to evolve and so do games like Lair has shown with it very cool control scheme.
After Lair low rez games, tiny DVD based games, and old style controls are starting to look like those old rotary phones.
and for the record some sites did underrate the game. And i partly agree.
Anyways Lair is good but warhawk seemed to execute it better. Not becasue its just an online game, becasue i love single player games. And that too got some low reviews even though i fail to see why minus a few thing like being dropped many times from games(unless thats becasue people intentionally y dropped me)
and stella, the game was good but not that good. What about the corny dialog? throughout the game?
Granted many games including many i enjoy have corny dialog and partly this game too, but lets not overdo it bro.
gee with you bro, sony or any company doesn't need to milk a franchise. You do it for them. :P
I too think Warhawk is the turing point but the again have you played GRAW 2 that game is sweet. I guess GRAW 2 doesn't count because it is not an exclusive for the PS3. But I ordered LAIR from Amazon.com so it should arrive in a few days.
a New era of Games, that are not supposed to be Hyped and how they fail at being anything close to AAA material.
i'm more optimistic it will be the opposite.
I would try to agree or disagree with you but you really haven't said anything. UGGGGG "Desperation" UGGGGGGG. For what? Try to add some sort of context to your comments next time.
If anything, I think you would be better off and further ahead if you didn't say anything at all.
It picks up the score ( for me anyways ) about 1.5 notches. W/O the proper set up this game might dissapoint some. I would still highly recommend a rental first if you have to make choices with your gaming purchase. Warhawk is great! However I don't believe it pushes the envalope far enough graphics wise. Gameplay is slick as butter though.
however i think funfactor goes with warhawk.
you have to play the game to understand how awsome it is. lair is the turning point for the ps3
to see what the sales are going to be like for this game.
I'm thinking our little population of internet gaming whoredom is a small number when compared to the whole. People might still pick this up or rent it and find out for themselves. I'm going to rent it and see.
beat it!!! go to ur BOX
Lair is garbage and I hope it isnt indicative of a new era for ps3
Those x360 games are garbage
Cartoon halo 3 with powerranger kids in green diapers and Mass effect with liliput low poly chars and aliens
BTW ;--90% of the people who bought Bioshock have been bored to death. most of them are trading it in with other games
So A new era for you are the re-hashes you are getting right?
You talk like your a professional. Instead of making a smart comment like 'it doesn't interest me' you decide to say "Lair is garbage."
Some people who have reviewed it said it was good, some said it was bad. At least they give a reason on why it is either. You just rather slander it and run.
And at least PS(SONY) takes risks with the game industry like with EYE of Judgment, Little Big Planet, SingStar, Buzz, Guitar Hero. What has the Xbox done that is "fresh" to the industry? Answer me that.
Late to the party, but I'm willing to bet that there are several comments before and eventually after this stating something along the lines of this reviewer being either insane or a fanboy for genuinely enjoying the game.
Do me a favor folks and just let me know if I'm right.
With some minor changes you can turn that comment into a universal comment to post in every pro-sony topic, and you will always be right.
You can also put them in the pro-microsoft topics, but there will hardly be anyone reading it.
And the guy is like, you must not heard of the bad reveiws. I told him I did read some bad reveiws and some good reveiws. I told him I has seen some videos of people actually playing the game and the controls seem good to me. He then tells me, I heard it's like controling a bus and I told him it's a dragon what would you expect.
I think Lair deserves more credit, and to give it a such low score because the reveiwer sucked at the controls is unprofessional. Look at the guy controling the game and tell me where do you see him having a hard time controling the dragon...Let's be gamers people and stop all this trolling PLZ
I agree with NASIM
Warhawk should be the hallmark of what makes a good PS3 game. Absolutely solid game design at the expense of useless fluff and the incorperation of all the elements and features that define the genre.
This is a lesson that developer of Lair and Heavenly Sword missed. Annoying montion control aside Lair's targeting system is even worst. Let me choose what I can lock on to god dammnit. Same thing with Heavenly Sword, if I want to block and jump, then I should be able to block and jump whenever I want.
Lair 2 can only get better [Hopefully]
i just got lair, some of the controls arent that great but its really good overall, and the remote play capabilities are true, i tried it
Warhawk is a fun and very addictive game, and was not overlooked in the article, but we are going on time frame here. Adding Warhawk would've added August into the mix (I know, I know, Lair came out August 31st, but most stores and even our site was confused on this)and that was too big of a stretch. Madden failed to meet any expectation and APF2K8 was fun, but not quite there. The point is that with the release of Lair, the following titles are considered mainstream and whether you take sides with one console or another, you have heard of them. For those of you bashing Lair that haven't even touched it, you need to get to a GameStop or somewhere and at least see it first hand. A review is just a gamers insight as to what to expect. You will never please everyone, even with Halo, not every one loved it but it is great all the same to most.
If this is sony's turning point, well I feel bad for ps3 owners for whats to come.
Ha! as I play madden and all pro 08 @ a smooth 60fps.
http://www.penny-arcade.com... ^Tycho makes some good points.^
is refering to Lair being the first of many games in succesion comming out of PS3 in between short intervals this holiday season. As for Lair itself. I am interested to know from those who actually played it if its really as bad as IGN stated. An honest opinion would be nice. I am about 80% in favour of getting this game because it sounds like somthing different than most other games and the production values are quite high. I give credit to this game for the fact that it tried something really risky but obviously the majority of the reviewers didn't like it. As they say, What dosen't kill you will only make you stronger.
Well, lets say, this weekend was a turning point. On one hand you have Warhawk, on the other Lair. IMO, both mark a turning point for the PS3. Like it or not, these are real original IPs for the PS3, no matter how much you counter with "but we have Halo". Who gives a rats a$$.
I got Lair this afternoon, I am playing Warhawk since Friday. Lair is epic, Warhawk is a unique online experience. Both are unique in their own, and both deserve to be recognized as pushing the boundaries of what we know.
Maybe the implementation is not there, yet, but they are the first generation. Not another clone of an existing concept.
I might agree, they are no 10/10, but they should not be, either. Why ? They are an indication of things to come, an experiment, which in its first incarnation are not supposed to be perfect. That leaves room to move on, for Lair to fix some control issues and further improve the visuals and gameplay as well as add a stronger online component. Mix the epic story of Lair into the next generation Warhawk, and whoa, yeah, there you go.
None the less, both games impress me. Call me what you want, you have no idea what I'm talking about, if you do, anyhow. Some things need to be experienced to have an opinion.
that made the Sixaxis feel comfortable! I play warhawk alot, I luv destroying people an team death matches. But people become soar loser because u destroy them so easily an try an send u silly, cry baby messages cause they aren't up to yur level! lol
As most PS3 owners already knew,this was inevitable.For all those haters and doubters out there the PS3 WILL get much better alot sooner than you think.Mark my words,YOU WILL SEE.
you WILL see. the word will is the word i dont like. i like seeing now with my box. ima wait for a ps3 like most rational ppl till they put out a couple of AAA games. lair and hs are not. ppl at gamespot said to not play lair because it is frustrating and shallow. same with hs. shallow, short. guess well have to WAIT till next year and BEYOND right...
I guess you missunderstood me 49er,let me make it more simple:THE PS3 IS VERY GOOD RIGHT NOW AND WILL ONLY GET BETTER.That is a good thing.Wait as long as you want that's your choice but I'm ENJOYING MY PS3 WITH A MILLION + PLUS OTHER PEOPLE RIGHT NOW!!Now off I go to blast some people in WARHAWK,see ya!!
I own the most logical gaming console on the market right now. With my PS3, PS2, and indomitable games library my entertainment is endless. The world is all mine for playing and it only gets better and better -- haha
Look at how the PS3 news ropes in helpless Bots from all over the universe. Go huddle up and call a Halo3 play 49er. You need a hail mary son.
This is Living
Sony fan boys should do stand up as they are so funny, how they try and defend the console is hilarious, they take it so personal when negative news is posted about the console, sh1t they even get aggressive. I know that deep down you are all p1ssed at shelling crazy money for a console that is no better than the 360 (im not saying its worse before you all throw freddie froffers), but they will at some point be some very good games to play, but please dont say that 90% of pro gamers and journalists are wrong when they diss a game, end of the day its their job and im sure they have been playing games much longer than many of you. I know most of you have convinced yourself that lair and heavenly sword are awesome AAA titles but they are not, get over it, sure they look nice, but so does Afghanistan and you wouldnt go there
you complain about better things in life. BLURAY IS crap right with 25GB's verse 9, then there is no need for HDMI, BS, and next gen graphics suk, plz you guys are retarded
what 360 needs is AMAZING GAMES LIKE WARHAWK AND LAIR
why is it that HS went gold right after release, why is it that WARHAWK IS NOW THE BIGGEST ONLINE CONSOLE GAME and it get basically getting 9's, thought so
Why was LAIR revaluted and giving an 8.5, NINJA GAIDEN 9.5's, GET REAL
That gears of war is the biggest online game period, ninja gaiden is an xbox 1 port, lair sux, and as for blue ray, big is not always best, look at meatloaf for instance, its you that needs to get real
I think you will find World of Warcraft or Counter Strike Source are the "biggest online games" so no period required.
Online play isn't just specific to consoles and is vastly superior on a pc "period"
the article is about Lair and how it's the start of great things for the ps3, any numpty can see the ps3 has a very rosy future. sadly only certain "blinkered fanboys" can't
i own a ps3 so i must be a fanboy right "WRONG"
i love gaming thats why i have a Snes,Dreamcast,PC,PS3
it's about the games people
