BioShock Dev Defends Lair Motion Controls

wht is wrong with Ken Levine eyes- 2K Boston president and creator of bioshock- he never opens them

MalcomGrasley3570d ago

Ken Levine??? LOL, what an idiot.

Cry Xbots and Nbots! Cry!

You hates teh Lair! It makes your e-peepee shrink!

1080p graphics! - Xbots inferiority complex rising! Lash out!

Insane levels of detail thanks to the PS3 being able to leverage the PS3's Cell/RSX rendering architecture to implement progressive mesh rendering. - Xbots inferiority complex rising even higher! Lash out!

Gigantic world sizes that take up 4 gigs per level - Xbot 7 gig DVD damage control in full force! Lash out!

Tilt left to bank the dragon left, tile right to bank the dragon right - OMG! Now we have the Nbots joining in! Lash out fanboys!

"LAIR potintioal SGY(SH11test game of the year) (vs) BIOSHOCK POTINTIOAL GOY"

***LAIR is hardly the "SH11test" game of the year.

"give it a rent game (vs) THE GAME OF 2007=MUST MUST MUST BUY"

***Must buy? Are you kidding? I played BioShock and it truly is an amazing game but it's not worth $60. I played through it the first time on Hard in a few days. I only played a second time on Easy to get 6 achievements I missed. After playing it 2 or 3 times there is absolutely no replay value. If you want to waste $60 to only play a game twice then that is your decision. For me it was a definite RENT.

"LAIR+HS (50GB of date in 2 BR DISC=less than 13hs gameplay) (((VS)))BIOSHOCK DVD9 around 20hs of unrepretative gameplay"

***Seriously? "Unrepretative?" I don't know which game you played but it obviously was NOT BioShock. BioShock is very repetitive at times. The entire game consists of collecting items, killing splicers, and killing big daddies. How is that not repetitive? As for the hours of game play, however long it takes someone to complete a game, it should not factor in on whether the game is good or bad. As long as the story is compelling I wouldn't mind a game being even 5 hours long.

"inredabile detail -but one of the worse looking games-(vs) increadible graphic"

***WTF? LAIR is one of the "worse" looking games? The graphics in LAIR are great. Not the best graphics ever but certainly not the worst.

"ride your dragon (vs) complete invoation and revolution in FPS"

***"Invoation and revolution?" What exactly about BioShock is innovative and revolutionary? If you want a revolutionary game that offers plenty of innovation see: Half-Life 2

"CELL+RSX+PS3 POTINTIOAL ((((VS)))) XENOE+360 devloper frindly design"

***What the hell does this have to do with the games themselves?

Any semi-intelligent person can clearly see that your comment is pure flaimbait. I honestly feel that I may have become stupider after reading your comment. Next time you want to degrade a game, and in the process diss a console, make sure you learn proper spelling and grammar. At the very least try to use the little spell check button that n4g provides.
"Potintioal" LMAO!

So Lair was used to promote motion sensing...

ISay3569d ago

lair is the game you buy for fanboys and non gamers they are both to blind to see what crap they just got, no one ever talks about any paticular fun they had in the game. i personaly didnt mind the controls. it was the core gameplay that nobody wants to talk about that ruins this repetive and laggy some times ugly game.

Arkham3570d ago

"Possibly one of the worst games of the year..." is a bit of an exaggeration. Disappointing maybe, sure, but it's nowhere near the bottom of the heap.

ISay3569d ago

if you actualy played the game than this is 100% true

Keyser3569d ago

If you play it you'll like it. ISay never even played the game. The game is actually fun. It's not perfect but so far I have found a single game that is. On the other hand the game is fun.

If you don't want to risk $60 rent it. If you hate 6 axis then stay away from Lair. It truly is a fun game. No fanboy.

xaphanze3570d ago

I think sony did this with factor 5.They forced them on motion sensing to show people that they made the right decision with making the six axis.
Sixaxis + rumble would be really cool. Wii and 360 controller together ;P.

apoc063570d ago

i disagree. every since the new controllers unveiling it seems like warhawk was the sixaxis poster child. warhawk was 100% under sony's control. if they didnt force warhawk to use motion control, i dont really see why they would force lair to do the same.

doublertist3570d ago

i have this game and yes the controlls are tough and there is a bit of a curve but still on of the best looking games out on any consol right now, and the story is great and the cinematics are awesome, people who hate the controlls just are unable to adapt to the sixaxis control and for them sorry and i do understand that they hate it and factor 5 should have given the user the option to use the joysticks as the control for the dragon and so its too bad that they left that out but if you odnt believe me, go rent the game and see for yourself that it has some great potential
