Here's some new Lair Screenshots, Wtf happened?
Doesnt look so good anymore why is it those PS3 games looks less and less impressive exept resistance ?
General, you made my day man...AWESOME !!! I never knew that there will be such a classic level of on-ground campaign as well, now that's talking 3D, entirely in the sky and on the field, superb ! and that water view is killer in its wake as well. Thanks for posting these here.
By the way, why did you say 'WTF happened' ?!
Just compare the supposadly ingame shots from the last E3 to these current screen then you'll know why general had to say "WTF happened"
He's saying that because several days ago he was a kool-aid drinking PS3 fan, now he's jumped on the kool-aid drinking anti-PS3 train. Just look at all his posts in the last few days and you will see the change, and also realize that you should bypass his comments whenever you see his name. :)
These screens look great, what the heck are you people thinking? You were probably saying that those leaked pictures of Forza 2 the other day (which were later officially released) were amazing compared the CGI that was shown previously. They looked like complete and utter crap. But Forza 2 as well as this game will continue to improve up until their release date and will look incredible. Bet on it.
WTF happend here lol, wasn't the images from E306 all INGAME acording to all the sony fanboys lol, because these screens looks like a completly different game to me! It looks like crap.
nope, cgi pics from the fake trailer
what a joke sony is coming out to be, first the delay now these pittiful screens looks nothing like its old CG screens.
tells me that sony has alot of "CRAP" to show at TGS.literally i mean theres going to be alot more disappoint in the air at TGS ill put money on it.
Factor5 is responsible for the trailers and screenshots, not Sony. If somebody lied, it was Factor5.
First Lair trailer. "THE FOLLOWING IS COMPRISED ENTIRELY OF IN-GAME FOOTAGE"
At GDC showing Lair running on hardware
Lair is playable there. These must be from earlier build or something, look how much HS, MGS4, Motorstorm etc. have improved in time. And Factor 5 is supposed to be the most talented developer.
actually they said MGS4 was getting downsized in graphics. But it's small and nobody really notices it.
actually the screenshots doesnt look that much different from the trailer... its gorgeus.. i just wish that they are in higher res so we could see more texture and details... riding one of those dragon would surely make me feel like one of the ring wraith flying over the dead marsh and in the battle of helms deep and minas tirith in LOTR.. wahahaha.. swoop down and grab a fistful of soldier.. fly away and drop em for high above... wahaha.. lord sauron would be pleased.. hehe
And at a low resolution TGS isn't far away and it will be playable so we shall see what factor is bringing to the table. I can pretty much garentee it will knock your shoes and socks off!!
TGS 2005. There's no normal mapping at all. The designs aren't even the final dragons or rider. We already saw the realtime video last year so...i think i have to call "hella old screens" on this one. If i'm wrong, you have the right to stone me, but yeah, hehe.
Considering that they were a Nintendo developer, these look like they were running off a Gamecube. Nintendo didn't want to finance large budget titles (LAIR is costing over $20 million), and MS wasn't very sure about it either. Sony on the other hand is helping finance and ensuring that their vision stays true to form without any compromises. Actually they do that with every company that comes to them, which is why they have such good relationships with their second-party devolopers. They want great games, not just commercial success.
But back on track. Yeah, there's just too many oddities that give away that these were running on current-gen hardware. Very low polygon counts, simple shaders (no ambient occlusion or normal mapping), and not much going on. We still have two weeks to go, and I'm still betting that the E3 trailer is what it's going to look like on Sony's system.
