Quote of the Day

Peter Molyneux on MCV: "I am a designer and I shouldn’t stand up and say everything is wonderful and shiny and great and we made the greatest game ever, because we didn’t. Being inspired by your mistakes is one way of breaking into that triple-A club. It will always be my consistent dream to break into that club. I’ve made a lot of good games, but never a great game."

Peter 10:21 "I shouldn’t stand up"

I think Peter is trying to tell us something...

Dude! To this day, that song is still stuck in my head. It pops up out of nowhere and it has been years.

To make matters worse, here's a youtube of it. p.s. Never realized how much they looked like hobbits: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0x4Kw_y4fg

Say what you will about him these days, Populous was a fucking amazing game, and definitely, imo, worthy of "AAA" status.

And IMO, Powermonger was an improvement on top of Populous.


Powermonger was REALLY good. Had many months of fun with that one

Beamer I whore-heartily agree with you.
Trying to decide if this was a joke/reference that went straight past me, or the funniest typo I've seen in a while

I noted that, too. The only logical conclusion I could come to is that Half Elf is also Half Whore.

Good old Peter left me sceptical about everything that involves him, since he did Black & White.
Populous & Powermonger were simply great. Syndicate and Magic Carpet - I loved those, but he only was the producer and not the designer of them. So overall, the last great game that Peter designed was Populous 2 in 1991!

Yeah, some might add Dungeon Keeper. But as mentioned previously, DK was funny threw its setting. But from the game design aspect & influence on the industry it was imho rather mediocre.

So where's the game with the creepy boy that Peter promised would be the next big thing, using Kinect?

There was a blurb the other week saying that it had been canceled.

I really wonder just how much you could really do with that tech demo. What happened if you swore or said profane things? Probably not much of any response. It just seemed far too scripted to have any real intelligence at all.

I actually really enjoyed Black & White. There was a lot of goofiness with the mechanics of the game itself, but it really was pretty incredible. I remember one time I was picking up villagers and simply dropping them onto their roofs (they wouldn't die but I'd get a lot of belief out of it), and my creature trots along and sees me doing it. So he grabs the nearest villager and *chucks* him at a house as hard as he can. The villager bounces off and goes flying across the map. So I smack the big dumb tiger around a little--and like the petulant asshole he was, he immediately grabbed another villager and flung him off into the distance too. So I smacked him around some more, and he never did it again.

Dungeon Keeper was pure genius, he shouldn't sell himself short.

Now his current gen stuff is mostly dumbed down kiddie-shit, but his god games? Awesome stuff. Especially the first DK.

His comments always amuse me, too. I never take him as a salesman, just a guy that really, really, really loves what he's creating.

He's made comments several times in the past year or two about needing to be more realistic in his comments, but I think he's usually just so incredibly excited.

Taken with a grain of salt he's awesome.

Beamer I whore-heartily agree with you. I think he's one of the last few big names guys who's just soooooo damn happy to be doing what he's doing that he tends to get wrapped up in it.

He's sorta the Willy Wonka of Game Developers.

Bullfrog was the bomb back in the day: Syndicate, Magic Carpet, and Dungeon Keeper were not only amazing games, but genre pushing innovations.

And more recently, the Fable series is shaping up rather nicely with its own improvements and innovations. Now, if only they would release a PC version...

I just found out he's English, for some reason I thought he was French.

Was actually going to make some comment about how I always read his quotes in my head with a French accent but decided to check first. Welp, only been doing that for 10 years or so.
