Factor 5 absolves itself over Lair being a big pile of wank

To say that Lair has not received the warmest of welcomes by reviewers is to perhaps put it mildly. A long time in development and the usual make-or-break hype has not done enough to stop people panning Factor 5's big PS3 expedition. Well, people who aren't obsessive Sony fans, of course.

Destructoid???

What a big festering pile of wank site. Stop spamming this sh!thole here.

And dont even think they dont put Gears to shame in a heart beat. Everyone was quick to bash the control but forgot that hands down this is one of the best looking games out.

Plays well, then transfer to your PSP to play as well..

They did a lot right. Should have included an option for motion sensing on/off.

And I like how he said "Practically".. Stop putting words into the developers mouths. Atleast we tried.. Whatever AHOLE.

I bet you were clapping and praising Destructoid for their impressions of Mass Effect

"I bet you were clapping and praising Destroid for their impressions of Mass Effect"

Exact same comment. That garbage of a site has people spamming their stuff all over the gaming world.

They're nothing but a bunch of losers.

Fake, fabricated...whatever. Read the original:

Julian Egg probably fired a lot of employees who disagreed with her direction for Lair. And yet, after all is said and done, she's still allowed to steer the boat and everyone else has to explain to new employers as to why they had to leave or got fired. Go figure. Power & Politics...rather than skills...

If this game was for the Wii the critics would have loved it.
This is not a game for hardcore gamers who needs to be in total control.

But man I don't get people having problems controlling the dragon.

This game took guts. They could have made the sixaxis optional but they chose to stay true to their plan. I personally love developers who has the guts to take risks.

I would recommend people trying the game before saying its garbage.
It's definitely not. I would rate it about 8.5. Not AAA but still a great game that is different than anything you have ever tried.

I agree, atleast pay 7 bucks for a rental to see if you can fly a dragon better than some reviewers. You should be able to get to level 5 in a week...which is where they say many problems were popping up.

"This game took guts. They could have made the sixaxis optional but they chose to stay true to their plan. I personally love developers who has the guts to take risks."

Wow! I am amazed.

8.5/10 is about right. Depending on if you have an old TV or a nice 1080p set. It's a must buy for anyone with a 1080p set. The game is gorgeous.

The controls are just awesome. Tilt the controller left, the dragon turns left. One button for range attack, one button for up close attacks.

It's funny and pathetic at the fanboys who think they are fooling people into thinking they have the game when they talk about controls. There is a 180 degree move you can do with either a snap of the wrist up or using the R2&L2 combo. The move isn't even used that much.

It is hilarious to see people go out and pick up the game or rent it and come back and say how great it is and how well it controls. And they actually sound shocked that the crap being spread about the game is nothing more than the usual fanboy garbage about games that aren't on their own system.

Welcome to the sad and pathetic world of console game fanboys.

I feel sorry for these poor people at Factor5. I feel that although this game can't actually be THAT bad... I think it was one bad review after another that gave way to a cascade of hatred towards the game that ended up in a "Who can give it the lowest score" competition between the media.

Somone gives it 4/10 or something and then the next set of reviewers don't want to look like idiots giving it an 8/10 or 9/10.

It's a tragic tale for the guys are factor5 and a hard lesson to learn as their first PS3 title. What makes it worse is the fact that it can't be saved by a games drought. The fact that someone comes along and says "Ah there is nothing else out, may aswell give it a go"

Heavanly sword, warhawk and graw2 are all hanging about so no one has time for this troubled game.

Good bye Lair, pitty we never met - aparently you were an awful game.

cartman3133421d ago

Thankfully I never fancied letting others do the thinking for me. I'll go rent it.

Double-Edged3421d ago

Flop of the year.
SuckFest.

watch the PS3 Fanboys get personal. and throw off topic things.

MetalProxy3421d ago

Dude I can play the game on my PSP..now thats not a fuk'n failure. Thats Awesome!

synetic3421d ago

indeed go away .. its not a bad game but since this is the first game to use sixaxis so much ppl stay a little confused and instead of giving the game a second try they simple stop playing

Mars Attacker3421d ago

Something tells me this is the last PS3 game for a long time (if ever) that uses motion as it's primary control. PS3 developers around the world are probably scrambling to modify or cancel future motion games at this very moment. The controller is an unresponsive POS. It's not something that can be improved with better software. Maybe if the controller itself is redesigned...

harpua3421d ago

" it's a real failure. Flop of the year. SuckFest."

translation: I'm too uncoordinated to play this game so I'll bash it.

Amplifier3421d ago

I will tell you what a TRUE failure is...

MANY Xbox 360s

PS - I don't know YET but I will still buy this regardless of the bias nonsense that is STILL slung around the net about PS3 and PS3 games.

The reviews with 4's or whatever are simply ridiculous. This game is a solid 8, but the missing analog controlls is a big mistake. Motion constrolls is not everybody's cup of tea, so this game should be punished with a 7, but 4? WTF
