I think Lair was a victim of the hype and stretched truth of Sony and the PS3. Media outlets like G4, IGN, Gameformer, etc. all heralded this game as the next end all be all title. Most people were skeptical. I mean, even though dragons are cool, they usually don't translate into gaming gold. The game never looked like a must buy to me. More like a niche game, not a flagship. But they kept hyping and promising. Now it's here and anything short of perfect was destined to disappoint. The fact that they made it all Sixaxis was the final nail in the coffin. I think the developer has a point about some people hating all things motion. Getting into a motion controlled game, for someone who has been weened on the gamepad, is a chore at times. Now when I play titles like Bioshock, I think of how much better it would be with a Wiimote type control scheme. Sony is always talking smak and putting everyone else down. For the most part the other developers let these jabs pass with little or no response. All of this bad carma is comming back on Sony and I have to admit there is a little space inside me that is loving it.
