Molyneux on Fable Kinect Demo "Horrendous Mistake"

Official Xbox 360 Magazine has a video of Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux discussing the E3 showing of Fable: The Journey, admitting this was another of his errors in judgment speaking with the press. Aided by a wall acting as a whiteboard (but unfortunately not by a separate microphone), he explains that the upcoming installment in the series is not a rail shooter, in spite of looking like just that during the show: "My name is Peter Molyneux, and I made a horrendous mistake on the press demo, on the press briefing demo, of taking out the navigation allowing players to move. I'll just state on record now, Fable: The Journey is definitely not on rails. All these journalists [gestures at scribbles on the wall] have signed the wall and agree with me..." Thanks MCV.

Sorry Pete, but every year I watch Microsoft's press conference, I go straight for the fast forward button the moment you walk out.

It's good to be a celebrity developer, because despite having last made money a decade ago you can still command a spot in the conference, like as if it's worth hearing what you have to say.

Oh I'm sorry we forgot about the rainbow world of the industry as a whole.

Just saying, the damn thing sold 10 million right off the bat and we can't dismiss it. I'm not saying that's a positive... it's another example of how the mainstream gaming industry is changing into something I won't like anymore.

In other horror news, Xbox Live will be "built in" to Windows 8. Source. Ugh.

That's bad. The worst part though is they will use it for nothing but online service games I bet, and for checking your Xbox scores.

Why not? A Syndicate shooter with a rudimentary and simple research tree, auto-heal and cover-system and LOTS of ridiculous achievements. Wouldnt that be fun for the target audience of todays mass market? Hmm? Wouldnt that be AWESOME???

I understand you're being sarcastic but even so, a small part of my subconcious is urging me to commit a hate crime on you... ; )

Who cares? Whether is is the entirety of the game or only a portion of it, the Kinectified portion of the Fable game are bad.

F3 was easily the worst in the series and rather than addressing the various flaws, they spent time waving at Kinect. All from the guy behind Milo.
Which was a fake piece of BS to start with...
Honestly, 'nuff said.

Not impressed with the limited, laggy Kinect,
Ray

You forgot the Kinect tie-in where you can wave your hands around at random in the air and win the game.

So, then, who isn't fading into irrelevancy after that E3?

Microsoft's was especially awful. Nintendo's is a remains to be seen thing and Sony's overall was solid.




Since you asked.


Peter , just remake Syndicate, and the games you used to make before this SHIT FABLE, and ALL WILL BE FORGIVEN

Are you guys going to start pulling an ASeven and claiming that god himself is going to smite the entire industry?
