And a better quality shot showing hundreds of knights engaged in an on-foot campaign, being attacked by dragons, versatile indeed !
this games just gets $hityer and $hityer now there showing the in-games screens and it dont even compare to its pr-rendered stuff.
at the ground textures on the screen were the guy has a spear through him it looks pittaful just pittaful from comparing it to its old CG stuff.
And this is a new screen from a cutscene using actual game assets:
and this is actual gameplay:
that was a joke! How can anyone disagree with trogdor?
Anyway, I do think the game has a great deal of potential. With some work I think it could still end up looking closer to the initial screens. Considering it isn't scheduled for release until at least next summer, this isn't worth worrying about too much just yet.
If anything, seeing the most recent lair pics burns a bit because some PS3 developers (not all) have shown target renders of what they think their games will look like, only to come up short in more recent builds.
Still, the game concept is great and I hope the execution lives up to it.
I like the idea of the game, but it's looking less and less like the game we were shown.
I like the flame effects, overall underwheming compared to what has been shown in the past though.
This game is still very early in developement. Do you guys honestly think the game is going to look perfect while still in Developement????
I expected it to look like the footage shown at E3, but I'm not surprised it didn't. Sony did say it was "IN-GAME" footage.
Just look at the screen shots Playah1 posted (post# 3). What looks better: the "IN-GAME" footage from E3(1st pic) or the current screen shots (2nd pic)?
even before TGS 2005. Two of these even look like they were made on a Gamecube.
y do u keep saying the same stuff ?.
now back to the post yes it looks terible compared to the cgi they showd , but i'm sure it will look better when realesed next year HOPFULLY for the sony fans .
We'll see how the game looks in motion at TGS.
Those pics are awesome. It looks really sharp and clean.
That picture with the 2 dragons in the air fighting is really old. Factor 5 is an awesome developer so I have no doubt this game will be very impressive. It is going to be playable at TGS so in just a few days we will see what Factor 5 has done with this title. This game is #1 on my list a PS3 games to get not only for the graphic appeal but the sheer origional aspect of the title.
needs a different title to appeal to the Japanese...like "Godzilla and Me" or "Godzilla: The Adolescent Years".
On a serious note, these pics could very well be outdated. The Japanese are not as graphically judgemental as the U.S./European audience tends to be. Hence their love and loyalty for RPGs with N64 caliber graphics.
that was really funny!, lol
yeah i guess it is a time machine, but i really like the concept of the game......interesting.
Maybe these shots are taken from where they reach in development and haven't started polishing the graphics of that part yet. (just a thought don't know if it makes sense).
The greatest thing about Sony is that they have such an influence over industry that they are on everybody's mind far before even their machine is out! the 360 fanboys are making their final guesses on the software even a good 8 months befors its release, such desperate little folks, see how much improvement Resistance has undergone with all that lighting stuff!!! indeed those effects have yet to be seen in LAIR screens having a HUD, thusly no one in the entire world can say this is the final look of the game. Secondly, where is such an experience existing on 360 anyway, with hundreds of knights on ground and flying and ground battles with dragons, giant castles blistering, and hovering forts in the air where warriors might be able to get down...Nah such an experience ain't existing yet on 360, neither on any game in the announced titles for the future games. All you fanboys do in judging a game is by how good normal-maps are placed on those old-gen models, Hah! great looking games dependant upon texture-mapping techniques is the way of the past, you all live in the PC era!
I actually expected this game to look alot better. Sony fans said it was a must buy but i dont see anything must abouit it. We'll see how it looks at TGS
This game has alot of potential, its still in development so I will reserve my comments until I see more from TGS.
I think The Truth might be right, if these screens are news, wouldn't the article title be "New Lair Screens" like all of other articles?
its just a little funny that the one shown at e3 looks so much better than the latest one. It looks a bit PS2 quality but thats just me. I too will wait for FINAL judgement at TGS but as of right now this game lookks gross.
they look and might be place holders. They all have the same animation going foward. Only certain ones have shadows. Hopefully its because of the development stage that its currently on.
I've been following Factor 5 ever since they did "Turrican" on the Amiga.
I'm confident this will be a very special game.
Can anyone please tell me what day TGS falls on?
TGS will be held on Sept 22-24. If you'll be looking foward to any 360 news you'll be aable to download coverage on marketplace for free alonh with new demos and other goodies. It happen during E3 and will happen during TGS.
I love that feature with the 360....Everyday we got new videos, interviews, ect all from the total E3 coverage. Right on our TV at home via xbox live Marketplace. Thanks Microsoft. I look foward to all the new things they will be showing and announcements at TGS. It'll be another Gaming Convention dominated by the xbox 360. 2 down 1 to go. Thanks microsoft.
P.S. This game looks horrible. With only a few months to go...Sony Devs better start improving these games.
I remember before e3 06 all the Sony sheep were saying "wait untill e3". Now it's wait untill TGS. Sony needs to show something. SO far Lies all lies. The PS3 is not HD capable out of the box. Composite only cables, WTF. This is not acceptable. Well, Sony can do what ever they want "IT'S SONY". They don't have to deliver. PS3 is looking like a $600 paper weight.
$600 for console
$50 for extra controller
$40 for HD cables (SD gaming sucks)
$60 plus for a game
$750 just to play PS3 and one game.
Some pretty cool information on their Gamecube Launch title, which was made in 9 months! Shows how hardcore these guys are, and if anyone can pull off a technical marvel it's them.
