Towards the end of the PSN trailer, where the dragon is over the "main" city where most of the other vids take place, there are so many other dragons flying through the sky it's scary. If they can keep it at a solid 30fps, I'll be too busy fapping to the game to bother playing it.

Did anyone check out the new PSN trailer? The game really does look much better than ever before in motion. The framerate is much smoother, the fire and explosions look solid, and more environments are finally shown. It's very impressive stuff.

I like the way we have been shown work in progress, I mean we have followed this game from early concept to gold.

Yea, I saw this. Very sad.

Then again, I guess it's worth it. I think that if they can fix small quirks with the combat, it's worth putting it out a little later.

The article states the original release date was Sept. 26.. that's the release date for the PAL version, the American is still slated for Aug. 14 as far as I know.

Any word on how missions will unfold? Primary and secondary objectives ala Rogue Squadron? Medal system?

Looks bad ass. I love the sense of scale with all the dragons on one screen. Oh man! Next month baby!

Yeah, the fire looked much better in the recent trailer. I'm glad to see it as that was previously one of the weakest visual aspects of the game.

Let's see that tower again. In 1080p. kthxbye




This is why ... especially for a flight game ... 1080p is the way to go. You can simply resolve things from a far greater distance.

MastaChief, I think you hit the reply button in the wrong thread. You must have been viewing the 1080p Halo 3 screen shots..... oh wait.

Ugh. That's like seeing someone pissing on your kitchen floor and then crouching down and taking a shit right next him.

"TAKE THAT."

HAHAHAHAHAHA Don't ever compare Halo's graphics to trash like this.
Are you serious? This looks fantastic and is clearly a step ahead of Halo 3 (technically speaking). Of course, I do prefer the art direction of Halo...

The gameplay might look stale but Factor 5 is actually doing some mighty impressive things with the engine they've created for this game. But did you just stop in here to say "THIS LOOKS LIKE ASS HAHAHAHAAA" like a 5 year old or what?

That PSN video got me exicted about this.

Anyone got an over/under on DarkMastaChief getting to 10 posts?

Yeah, I just noticed that as well. Clearly not a standard member.

I think there is a timeframe for being a junior too like 3 months or 50 posts whichever comes first.

Of course I'm not a standard member.

But lair's graphics are a joke. Not in the top 10, not even in the top 20 games coming out this year.

No wait, I take that back, Lair is a joke as a game.

What I'm more curious about is what exactly prompted them to use that account after so many months and for nothing more than a random Lair troll. Very bizarre.
