SIMPLE: Sony should release a multi-level demo as fast as possible, allowing gamers to try the game
They want people to buy the game. Having a demo will only allow people to see how horrible it is before they buy it, Sony then loses.
how can you disagree with him when he's right?
if the majority of reviewers think it's a bad game then the majority of users who download a demo will think it's a bad game
it's not rocket science
maybe if they only do a demo of a segment of the game that doesn't demonstrate the games massive shortcomings, people might think it's a good game and actually buy it then
the problem is that there might not be a single portion of the game like this
What's sad here is that you guys listened to the reviews. I play the game all the time and I can't find the same gripes as the reviewers found. The controls are better than most games on the Wii and they're praising that thing like there's no tomorrow!
They WANT this game to be bad, so the game IS bad...follow me mindless, media-brainwashed, losers?
The game is fantastic! Ask anyone who owns it. It's a great game and we all agree. The same goes for Warhawk! Everyone has basically turned their backs on Sony for some reason...probably money from a certain company that never actually has to do anything to get ahead except PAY PEOPLE OFF!
EDIT: No, I mean anyone who PLAYS IT! It doesn't matter what system you're loyal to...JUST PLAY IT!!! How hard is that? Your friend either doesn't like video games or has a fear of dragons. The game is great! TRY IT...then, cry about how Sony sucks and all that other junk you've been spewing out because "your friends are doing it".
my friend owns it and he hates it.. I haven't even bothered trying it
anyways.. ask anyone and they will say they like it? If you mean ask anyone on n4g then yes, because the majority of ps3 owners here are loyal to the sony brand, and not to quality games...
Yeah...great idea. That way, nobody would buy it once they see how crap it trully is.
I hope everyone realises why this game is crap...sixaxis...
Gotta' love the typical "I don't listen to the reviews" speech. Always makes me chuckle. Why are you people even talking about Lair? You KNOW it's lame, so just stop it.
You should be busy playing some GOOD PS3 games. Warhawk, Virtua Fighter 5 and Ninja Gaiden Sigma. But no. What are you playing? Stupid Lair.
Funny comic strip :)
1. Hype sells games, TV commerical maybe expensive but it may pay off, you know all the movie games and crap like htat? they suck but they sell, they are always advertised along with the movies. Well it may not work, but if they hype this game up (which already has), and we are going after the "ignorant" rich kid off the block here, not blog readers, bc they have already bashed it to hell. Also advertise on other media channels as well if possible, be it mags and what not.
2. Fix the control by releasing a small patch to allow control change and mapping of the SixAxis, as well an adjustable meter of the sixaxis sensitivity, that's about all you can do to save this expensive project.
3. and yes, like the buddy above me said, release a Demo with ajustable controls!! Let me ppl know and prove to the people that the reviwers were wrong! even better if they can re-cut the CG in such a way that in the end of the trailer you will go wait, that's all? what next what next, damn i need to get this game!!!
Because one of the things that shine is the story on Lair, quite enjoyable.
are you a real doctor if so Why does my stomach hurt after lifting weights today :\
Which part of your stomach? When you lift weight, you tend to undergo what is called the Valsalver maneuver, which is basically you try to exhale but with your glottis close. Think of it like when you are straining in the restroom when you are constipated. Now, if you lift too much and keep on increasing your abdominal pressure this way it can cause compression to the internal organs, intestines, liver, stomach, as well as compressing the inferior vena cava preventing sufficent blood from going back to your heart (decrease venous return), this subsequently decreases the perfusion to the other tissues of your body.
If the condition is relieve right away after you lift and do not percipitate, it's most likily mechanical compression of the stomach (i assuem when you say stomach, u can tell the difference between your stomach and you "belly"? because alot of patients are vague on their symptomalogies). If this does happen, i suggest you not just concentrate on lifting, strengthen your OTHER muslces before you lift more, strengthen your abs and improve your cardiovascular health (jogging instead of lifting, lifting doesn't do anything for your heart), that way u can increase your cardic output when you lift later and perfusion rates to these visceral organs should improve.
Of course, please see ur doctor for further diagnosis, i can't make any diagnosis online wihtout seeing you.
Whoa, that was awesome.
thank you dr wan the pain seemed to go away It happened as I was exhaling if the pain comes again ima go to my doctor.
I wonder who disagreed with DrWan, I am guessing one of the followers of Benny Hinn or other "faith healer"s
Doc that was impressive man. This is the first time I give bubbles!!
Anyways to advertise Lair they should
1. Give away a free Hacky Sack with it (Who doesn't love hacky sacks?? We just can't get enough of them)
2. Advertise the "Play Lair on the go(Psp)" That would really help.
3. Have a sexy model play it.(Its what convinced me to get a wii....)!
4. And my grandma says show the dam game on a comercial! Dragons kick ass!!
My favorite thing was watching one of the producers talking about the game months ago and how it would only be possible to make such a great game on the PS3. How the controls are amazing and how they have utilized the SIXAXIS. Not only does the game suck but they will not be able to sell a lot of copies because they decided to be a PS3 exclusive. Nice choice guys. HAH
my fav thing is playing games! insted of listening to someone else crap opinion.
OPEN yer eyes - LAIR is the game that is not possible on PC.
Anyway the truth reveils itself sooner or later. World of Warcraft got the lowest scores at first but then they were 'corrected' by lotsa sites when the game got #1
What ever they did, I think it was pretty successful: 100K the first weekend. We'll see how the second week went.
this was'nt fuuny, at all. it barely made me smile.
anyone planning on buying fury mmo?
9 out of 10 reviewers cannot play this game.
Think before you buy, what can you do on the back of a dragon flying across a battlefield?
Yes I will be buying this game, you either love or hate big battle games. I love 'em.
What's even more funny is how many people have come in and canceled their pre-orders for this at Game Crazy. I ask every one of them if they gave it a try and they all reply with, "no, but it got horrible reviews." I bought the game on day one and I don't regret it one bit. I'm actually having a lot of fun with the game now, despite its few flaws.
I got it -> it is wonderfull
reviewers are nice guys but it is time for them to retire if they cannot handle joypads anymore
if this game was the exact same on the Wii - it would get a 1000/1000 and we'd here how "innovative" and "breathtaking" it is, "a must buy for all wii owners" blah, blah tripping over our own tongues blah....more accolades and kudos...blah
You know it, I know it, and all of the critique - PS3 - games - even - though - I - dont - actually - own - a - PS3 - console _Bots know it too.
You know what's cool though? Is that with all of this attention....it's just going to drive more people to want to test it for themselves and see what the hoopla is about. Keep it up round peggy and the _bot brigade...your feeble plans and hopes are backfiring. HaHaHaHaHaHaHa 8D
yep got the game it rocks controls are fine graphics are rock solid and the misions and story are fun and engaging. Sure its got a few bugs and some things could b better but this game is so a 8 or 9.
$ony just needs to start spending more than M$ on bribing these fat cat "reviewing" sites.
To retards wo try to discuss LAIR here
Have you tried it yet? have you watched to a second of gameplay? Have you heard a sound?
WTF ure u discussing here? Reviews? then discuss reviewers not the game!
The best way - get up yer lazy arses if dont get the game or ps3 and go to nearest console selling shop and ask someone there to let you play LAIR a couple of mins.
After u will say that reviewers are morons.
if you are a billygay then leave that drama to yer moma!
1. Release a demo with the ability to play without six axis controls.
2. Then make the six axis controls optional in a patch.
That's what I would do.
Actually, it works pretty fine without sixaxis - if you hook up a USB pad (I tried a usual Logitec Dual Action. Works fine). However, its no where as accurate as the sixaxis. I am flying around crazy with the stick. Its way easier to just point where you want to go.
Hmmm....by not paying any attention to posts by 2pstart.com; re-posted for effect by the little round crooked peg who will never play a PS3 game.
It's easy folks. Lair is a good game with controls that take mastering. Buy it if you want the challenge and beautiful graphics or -- keep complaining and spreading FUD like the aforementioned posters and the fickle, Microsoft tainted reviewers.
Trust me; it's really that simple.
Maddens Raiders...you've really outdone yourself here.
Harvey Birdman is possibly the best show ever made.
EDIT: Odion. I haven't gone anywhere. I've been here. What do you mean "Did I have to come back"??? Do you not like me or something? That's a picture of me promoting the band Project 86. I highly suggest picking a few of their CD's up if you haven't.
Leon why did you have to come back, and why do you have that stupid picture?
Its funny even though I have nothing against LAIR.
LOL i think ya'll were supposed to laugh at the comic strip, not give your input on what Sony should do to market lair.
If you don't know how to use the SIXAXIS controls then I feel sorry for you.You just relax and make smooth movements(sounds like taking a crap)with the contoller.
Lair is a great game that fully utilize the sixxaxxis controller. It has incredible graphics and sounds extensively using the blu-ray technology. Very far distant visuals and a deep story line that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Releasing a Demo this thursday will definitley help the marketing of this title and allow the players to determine rather it is a buy or not.
I'm not saying the game is good; I haven't played it, so I couldn't say. I'm saying I hate those that haven't even played the game, especially those Xbox fanbots that say the game sucks when they don't even own a PS3 (and never will).
I'm not gonna buy the game; $60 dollars is too much for trying it. I'm gonna see if any of my friends has it. And if they're too much like sheep not to even rent it, I'll rent it and see what the hell is going on with this one.
I really doubt the reviewers are right about everything on this one. If they are, I will just hate to see production values so high go to the waste, especially after so much hype and the fact that Factor 5 made it.
Was extremely impressed with the game, especially after hearing nothing but 1up and gamespot say what a terrible piece of sh!t it is -which is a lie by the way.
"Evokes Strong Emotions"
Can we plz...plz...PLZ just let this game die?
Ok I did own the game, and I keep seeing a lot of people in here saying the game is sweet, and awesome, and really good.....
Can you explain to me how you came to that? I am as big a fan of my PS3 as can be, but Warhawk earned my 60 bucks. In fact I would have paid more for Warhawk. Ninja Gaiden Sigma earned my 60 bucks. I would not pay 20 bucks for Lair. I guess I am in the minority, and I went through this game. I absolutely despised it. Seriously what did you like about this game? I'm just asking maybe I missed something.
Ill give it a go
lets say after a few nights of Warhawk playing on the edge of your seat adrenaline maxed out you need a break just throw in LAIR and let the fantastic graphics original story and dynamic controls sweep you away to that special place every gamer craves... unleash 30 tons of fire breathing dragon on hordes of enemies. Burn em eat em smack em claw em on land and in the air... I dont understand how you could not like this game is it the motion control? cause my four year old has it mastered already and you cant knock the graphics I mean ya a wee bit of clipping but compared to Oblivion Pls...
Seems to me the only ppl who cant handle this game are a few high profile reviewers I mean check out the fan based reviews on gamefaqs.com not one under 8 the game is rock solid.
It already sold 100k in 3 days. Dont be surprised if a sequel is announced.
lmao that was so funny...lol
good strips... though i've got nothing against sony. q:
Hilarious! And true!!!
drop price to £20 and make the devs come up with a patch for analogue control
Ok I was plannin on flameing the hell out of you all but you know what, the comic was funny! I just wish that more ppl would just step of the Sony hate train for a sec and talk about other crappy games like *cough* Two Worlds.
Nobody cared about two worlds, not even 360 owners. Who the f**k would when theres Elder Scrolls. Quit crying cuz lair was overhyped up the ass and turned out to be FLOP of the year.
