It´s not "Level 5" that´s making the game, it´s "Factor 5". :D

really unsure about this game, not that i can see myself owning a ps3 within 5 years anyway, but the graphics arent all that, but theres a helluva lot going on, it just fails to excite me in the slightest

Game looks ugly. For all the smack talk Factor 5's was doing before the game was shown it certainly doesn't help to think highly of this game. Sony wasted their money on this game. Someone from 1up already played it and said it was wacked :P

1UP really is not the best place to get your PS3 news :p

I really need a demo for this game.
I'm usually very decisive and I can just say ''Yes I will buy this game'' or ''No I won't buy this game'' but this is one of those rare occasions where I need more stuff on the game.

The real time battle excites me and of course the environments are HUGE which also adds great depth and there are lots of mini games within the main game itself like when you do a 1on1 dragon fight and the boss battles are different (God Of War like) but then again can they deliver that all in a way that it doesn't get boring?

This video did not help me decide.
This was a promotional videe anyway- We are not supposed to learn more.

Hope to see this at Leipzig Game Convention.

Their engine is incredible but I don't get aesthetics of the game at all.

What a fanboy-ish video. "the PS3 is the best console eva lol" ....Oh yeah? Give the 360 a bluray player and it will still have better lighting and sharper textures.

Just kidding! Don't hurt meh. :,[

The game looks pretty fun. Can the dragon talk like in Eragon? :P

OMG, no talking dragons? And you call this next gen? :)

This game should have been pushed out the front door months ago. I question how much good the last few months of development have done for the thing.

It is now Sony's sole exclusive for the month of August. Against Blue Dragon, Eternal Sonata, and Bioshock on the Xbox 360, and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption on the Wii. Maybe in addition to the "epic" Hollywood production behind it, it'll get the advertising to follow. Otherwise, this train is going to wreck.

come on blim you know what I am talking about...you played it at TGS 06 ;P
Commented on 2007-07-25 21:11:37
this is to date the most impressive i`ve seen on the ps3. which doesn`t say all that much, but still... game-wise not my cup of tea, but the graphics seem to be pretty nice :oD

Is the final game really going to have such a bad framerate?

Well some gamer sites said it's runing very smooth without any drops but then why are the devs still showing this chopy footage.

Btw are the cutscenes real time or cgi because they look amazing.
Commented on 2007-07-25 23:13:05
The game went gold today. I heard they ironed out most of the frame rate issues though before hand.
Commented on 2007-07-26 00:01:29
yeah they promised 30 FPS locked for the final version, let's see what happens

TURRICAN ! TURRICAN II ! TURRICAN III ! , and maybe Rogue Leader, that are dream games made in the past; since they left amiga and big n, julian and chris get a little lost in the hyper xbox ps3 60wii jungle, to hopefully find their private lair * joking*

If you can say one of the best looking games looks fugly, then... ok.

Someone from 1up already played it and said it was wacked :P
1up hasn't really liked Wii's motion-sensing games either (not nearly as much as many other places), so it's pretty clear that in addition to having something against Sony & its consoles, they are not too much in love with the motion sensing stuff (and since Lair relies so heavily on motion sensing, you can see what that means). Many other places have, in turn, praised Lair & have actually seen it in person on a (probably huge) HDTV and played it. The British Play Magazine (not the US one that gave Sonic 8.5) already rated Lair a 9, and IIRC, so did Edge Magazine. Even if 1up didn't like the controls (unlike many others), you seem to forget that they really praised the graphics of Lair.

come on blim you know what I am talking about...you played it at TGS 06 ;P
Eh? Are you really that dumb? They've completely revamped EVERYthing in the game after last year's TGS. Not only do the graphics look a lot better & the recent demos run at pretty consistent 30fps (so says previews), they've changed the whole way you actually play the game. They god bad feedback of the controls that were in the TGS '06 build and learned from that. Nowadays the controls are good & work without problems.

It is now Sony's sole exclusive for the month of August. Against Blue Dragon, Eternal Sonata, and Bioshock on the Xbox 360, and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption on the Wii. Maybe in addition to the "epic" Hollywood production behind it, it'll get the advertising to follow. Otherwise, this train is going to wreck
AFAIK, they've also got Warhawk & Singstar (Warhawk could be a big hit & Singstars have sold millions of copies, so...). Besides, August 14th is the day where everything starts. After that, we'll see Heavenly Sword, Warhawk, Uncharted, Ratchet & Clank Future, GT5 Prologue, Folklore and some others (+ multiplatforms + PSN games) all before the year ends.

I loved Panzer Dragoon Orta, but this just looks dull.

the graphics are pretty cool considering all thats going on, the controls have promise, but the game looks boring...

About the game

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog that's my understanding of it anyway based on the little i've read about it. seems like it'll happen though. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog less risks (not like ubi are particualrly great in that regard anyway) and just barrier for them to do their job. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (2 Hours ago)

    Sdarts Also, for the first time in BioWare's history, they are finally using full facial capture to record the actor's performance. Plus its the first time the Mass Effect team is using the Frostbite engine. (2 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @nostradamus: BioWare talks Mass Effect Andromeda squadmates, cut content and that missing release date: [url] Read 5th answer. (2 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Moonwalker: well, i'll on a leg and say its a "lie". It seems on par with DA:I, and if they think thats fine for a reveal trailer, then it doesn't bode well for the final product. (2 Hours ago)
