Peter Molyneux has revealed ’22 Experiments’, a series of experimental games from 22 Cans as the studio works towards its “final product”. And the first game could be here in as little as six weeks’ time.
Sorry, I'm not buying what you're selling anymore. You've let me down too many times.
the guy is basically the tim burton of video games he made a few good games back in the day but now all he does is crap
I actually like Tim Burton. In fact, I wish he'd remake "The Neverending Story", "Dark Crystal" and "Labyrinth".
Molyneux was struggling with his ideas while at MS...now that he is indie and doesn't have a big bank roll behind him I think he needs to prove himself again to the industry before most will jump on board.
And now he has even less budget to meet the insane expectations/blatant lies that HE sets.
Molyneux had great ideas and most importantly execution early on in his career. Now I think like it or not he does need to re-establish himself somewhat in that he needs to prove he still has that "it" factor that he had back in his early years.
Just so long as he's not promising an "evolution" in gaming or new genera. Nevermind that somehow he's going to have his first game after leaving MS - in what? - a month? Suppose someone can crap out an iPad title in that time.
*Plays Fable 2, turns off Xbox 360. Return's title, then buys another Xbox 360 game*
Fable 2 was way better than 1 ... I think you might be confusing it with fable 3? 1 was an Xbox 1 title...
I liked all of them. Sure, they didn't live up to the astronomic hype surrounding them but at the end of the day they were all solid titles for fans of action RPGs such as myself.
ok fable 1 was an xbox 1 title,so what now? it was still better then 2 imo
not even sure why this dude is considered one of gamings best devs. he sucks. just because black & white was an ok game doesnt mean he is awesome, all his other games suck except fable 1 now he is going to make a bunch of crap indie games, oh well he can be forgotten now :P
Populous? Syndicate? Dungeon Keeper?
Don't forget Themepark, I loved that game when it first came out!!
Populous and Dungeon Keeper are some of my favorite games of all time. I think these smaller experimental kind of games is just what Peter needs and wants. I'm excited.
If Molyneux hopped into a time machine in the 90s and appeared today, I might not roll my eyes when he claimed so many awards. But he has really fizzled out the last decade. He really doesn't deserve lifetime awards when half (Not including the meager stuff he did before selling baked beans) of his career...the LATTER half...has been so meh.
You said this in an earlier post, jokes lose their funniness the second time round. Then again, it's not really a joke.
This guy's an ass. In fable 1, in order to continue playing after you've beaten the story, you had to watch the credits entirely without skipping. If you skipped the credits, you were forced to start the game all over again.
More Mumbojumbo, sorry he played himself.
