Oh wow, this game got a nice boost in graphics...then again it's Factor 5.:o Some of the dragons still look boxy but from what I'm hearing several of these screens are old but some are new.

Interesting to note the pics are 720p now. Hopefully they ditched the 1080p because it would give us a lot more pretty visuals. Now it's time to see if the gameplay is up to par.

According to Factor 5 they are 90% completed with Lair and we can expect to play it soon....almost now, so maybe GDC will have some kind of new demo or something. I doubt a demo will hit PSN anytime soon though. I got that info from the latest IGN episode which had a short interview with Factor 5.

Those look old, they are from the same level that was shown at TGS.

The textures here look amazing though... god dam!

Same level, yes but I think a few things were upgraded. For one I don't remember the fire/smoke looking so good. See the last 3 pics. Other than that I think most are old.

Think one thing that I see different is that they got rid of that over use of glow.

Not really worried about graphics, Factor 5 can always deliver on that. The gameplay is what I hope is ironed out. We dont even really know the story or the names of the characters. Bu t I guess theres always time to tell that good stuff before the game ships.

Anyways, that said, it does look good. :)

I don't even want to know anything about the story or game. I need an exciting surprise that doesn't suck!

I'm fairly certain that this game will deliver!!!
Hope you're right. :)

No biggie. Heres an interview that sheds more light on the game.

http://media.ps3.ign.com/media/761/761161/vids_1.html

-Main character's name is Rone (dunno if I spelled that right)
-he mentioned that every dragon game before lair has been linear, so they wanted to go to a more sandbox type game.
-Your character is basically a solider for a country that controls a small part of fertile land of a dying planet(volcanoes errupting everywhere) which is attacked early in the game by another nation who wants your land/food/water.
-the main character goes through a change in beliefs during the period of the story. other twists in the story should be expected.
-melee combos are unlocked as the game progresses
-online leaderboards
-"carnage" is needed for medals at the end of the missions (replay value)
-you can "dismount" from the dragon, but theres not much to do as being on the dragon is the core gameplay. its mainly for traversing, but there is a 1st person mode to look around controlled with sixaxis (i think)
-they are still showing the TGS demo, which is only a small part of a larger level.
-theres other terrains to visit. two very huge cities on the continent, one you defend, one you attack during the course of the game.
-desert areas, boss encounters, elephant-like creatures, huge whale-beasts (huge helium fillled mantas that carry troops), ice areas, farmland, vegetation/jungle, ocean area, huge stone like creature that comes to life.
-mixture of realtime cutscenes and rendered cutscenes
-background music is transitioned seamlessly from gameplay to cutscene, back to gameplay
-music composer from sin city & passion of the christ
-in the game you can visit lair message boards
-if lair is successful they want to do a sequel with multiplayer.

Oh wow, after that interview I have higher hopes for the game play aspect. No multiplayer is kind of a bummer but I never expected this game to have that. If the single player is good then they will probably just go all out on the multiplayer for Lair 2. So this is basically a PURE dragon game in the sense that you don't really run around on foot, I like that. Sounds like they are cramming a ton of stuff on the game as well.

I'm a little confused on the friend's list thing. Did he mean that it will use the XMB friend's list for in game chat? If so that sounds great.

That looks really good. Is anyone posting a release date yet? The only thing I've seen is TBA. Edit: Actually, found a post that said May 2007.

According to a recent interview with Factor 5 the game is 90% complete so that date may hold.

The sea monster!:D

Wow, I've never seen those before. They look a lot better than the TGS build by far. The scale of the game is huge. Damn, now I'm curious to see what other types of creatures they have. Those flying whale things look sick.
