Behold..... the beauty of "Lair".....

Lair for Ps3

It's best to pause the video first off to allow it to load all the way (or let it play through once, then play it again)... breaks in the visuals don't do it justice.... (warning: you may have to sit through an ad for an un-related game before the actual video).

Thoughts and reactions please....

If this is what a FIRST GENERATION (i'm fairly sure it's planned for the launch date) Playstation 3 title looks like, imagine what will be the product when developers fully understand the hardware..... You can actually see the muscles flex under the leathery, moist skin....

wow that is pretty impressive i wonder how the game will actually handle because it looks like an original idea for a game which means theres alot more that can go wrong either way this looks like the ps3's going to come out on top for now at least. :thumbsup:

looks nice and all but,

what does that mean for gameplay? I'd like to know what the point of the game is and what you have to do cause i'm quite confused with the trailer.

Will this mean we are finially out of the 'awsome looking cutscenes and not as awsome gameplay graphics'?

___

It is exciting to see PS3 titles come to life though and its going to be awsome as developers learn how to use the hardware more and more. I just hope that developers are going to put their time on the games and not just churn multi-platform, not as great games for a quick buck. Which is why I'm so hopeful of MGS4.

We'll find out in a year or so that it was prerendered.

Honestly, I don't believe any of the "previews" that I see for games, even if they say "in game footage used". It always ends up that the graphics on the previews are great. Pay $50 for the game, put it in and watch the sweet start up graphics and intro, then hit start to play. Hmmmm....went from sweet hi-def graphics to a lo-res stick figure with a pistol.

Game trailers can also be misleading. I remember the game trailer for guild wars. The game is nothing like the trailer that came out (but guild wars is still a good game!).
War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.

They do that so you will buy their game! They only show the 'best' footage, not the in-game stuff. The Final Fantasy series, for example, has some of the best FMV cinemas I've seen...but the in game graphics pale in comparison to games like Shadow Hearts Covenant, or Beyond Good & Evil. Luckily, that's changing (Final Fantasy XII's in-game graphics look pretty good! :thumbsup: ), but you can see the marketing scheme to get your cash. Its a slap in the face to the companies that spend lots of time making a game with good graphics, and to us gamers, because they treat us this way ( Marketing guy: "Oh, by the way, the game looks bad in reality; SUCKER! You already bought it!!! *coughlosercough*" :flowers: ")

Most of the PS3 videos at E3 were pre-rendered. They were just showing "what the system could possibly do." We'll see if reality fits the grand promises of the marketing guys. :trumpet:

If thats in gameplay footage...impressive. If its just trailer (rendered) video its still good..but we have seen that all the time.

No idea what the game is about, but I assume your a dragon defending your lair.

Yea, I can finially start to expand my PS3 library. I only own Resistance: Fall of Man. Other than that, I bought fl0w and I've downloaded every demo available on the network.

I'm definatly getting Motorstorm next week and I'm hoping to get Lair and Heavenly sword in the coming months. Too bad I already own Oblivion on my PC, cause I'd definatly like to at least see Oblivion on the PS3 with it's visual enhancements. Don't know how much good it'll do me though till summer cause I'm not taking my PS3 to college with me, so at least I still have a use for my PS2.

The water looks just like some DX10 water effects seen around the web.

I must bring this thread from death yet again because there are some new videos of Lair that have come out recently that look pretty good. You can check them out from the link below.

*edit* You have to scroll down a little bit to get to the video links, but all of those screenshots are from the videos.

They use way too many specular maps. Too shiny.

I think watching teh trailer on a computer with 2.5MBs of video RAM doesn't give me the full effect...
