It was flawed but some parts were excellent. And it was highly original. All gamers should buy it just to encourage original games.

I did. Hoping B&W2 brings it all together.

An opinion not shared by me and my wife. We thoroughly enjoyed SP, when it wasn't crashing. That was my only real gripe about the game.
Really? I found it remarkably stable... and enjoyable but sorely lacking in playtesting. Building up the training and AI of the Creature was genius - but then they take it away for three of the five missions. WTF sort of a design decision was that?!

And I spent so much time just fucking about filling up the temple supply with food, and making sure my creature (when I had it) wasn't doing stupid stuff. It made it very hard to be good - as inevitably you can't be everywhere at once and Then expanding from village to village just became a case of building lots of new village centres and expanding sphere of influence that way.

It was flawed but some parts were excellent. And it was highly original. All gamers should buy it just to encourage original games.

This is why I threw out my BnW copy, (didnt have room in my luggage either ) cuz there was not a single multiplayer server out there when I got it.

Then get some friends (or a wife, like I did) that will play multiplayer with you.

As for the single player story, boring as hell.

I think it needs more focus on MULTIPLAYER to get lastability and change of scenarios.

This is why I threw out my BnW copy, (didnt have room in my luggage either :D) cuz there was not a single multiplayer server out there when I got it. It died a quick death. As for the single player story, boring as hell.

Remember what your broker always tells you: past history is NOT a guarantee of future results.

Every game he releases could be the one that finally manifests Peter's vision, and that would rock. As a lover of games (and women...*cough*), I hope it's this one. I'm behind you P.M!!

P.S. Just don't suck, okay?

Heh I just hope the 3 sailors come back with another song Addle Addle EEEEEEE

I LOVED those guys!!!!

Or would you rather have him making another WW2 shooter? At least he's one of the few game designers left in the industry that will actually do what he wants to do and not fall into the same pit that other developers have with making 'me too' games.


Yes, I will give him props for trying new things and thinking outside the mainstream when it comes to games. It's just his vision never seems to translate down to the actual game that he makes.

Although, perhaps a WW2 shooter with giant monsters that you have to feed!

No, it should be a simultaneious release worldwide.

Cuts down piracy then.

Using Localisation as an excuse is pathetic it should be localised during developemnt.

Europe should have it first, silly publishers.

Hope its a great game this time round, the last one was like 5 years ago or something so they had time to correct things .... or have they?

BnW is the kind of weird crap the BBC would put out, typically British.

At least he is TRYING to be CREATIVE unlike 99% of other developers and publishers. That I'll give him.

Wait, this is the guy that brought us both "Black and White" and "Fable"...the two games with the highest hype to disappointment ratio of just about anything out there.

I'll wait on buying this one. Fool me once and I'll give you a second shot...fool me twice and I'll wait about 6 months after release to see where the game really is.

...why England based developers get a release date later in Europe than the States. It's all a bit silly.
