Maybe he was a good developer in the past but a genius?...
Who became a hack. Someone wholly out of touch with the market or his ability as he makes comments which sound like promises that he can't keep, simply because someone's interviewing him.
Except for the unkept promises for the first Fable back in 2005 what other big "promises" did he make and not keep ? Most people on this site repeat the same internet myths like robots but dont have a clue what they are talking about. That said, I dont think P.M is some gebius or whatever, just a good dev, all three Fables have scored pretty well and have had huge salesn especially for an exclusive rpg.
Wait, so you admit the man made and failed to keep promises with the first Fable, then try to give him a pass on everything else afterwards? And its not about the "Big" ones, but each and every time he said something during an interview just to keep it interesting. And then there's Milo, an outright lie Molyneux propped up from the start. One he wouldn't give up even when those higher than him said otherwise - and this was when he was head of MS EU!
This was the biggest load of bollocks I ever saw from molybox: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Complete AI that you can have a full conversation with as if it were a real person? "this is real, and this works today" No it didn't Peter and that's why it got canned, and you got fired. Someone in the comments section of that video summed it up brilliantly. "they convinced us they made AI. We got Sonic Freeriders instead"
I hope this article is being sarcastic with its title.
He had me rolling throwing that kinect fable game under the bus to his former employee. He was like, "what possessed you to use kinect controls"...lol.
Senile, the word you're looking for is senile, not "genius". "He should miss his goals" Yeah, okay that's fair, but only if he doesn't tell us it's going to show in a game. That's called lying. I've not lived all my goals but doesn't mean I go up to someone and say "I WILL fly without wings by the end of the day" Call his £50K idea anything, experiment, attempt, but it's still just him trying to get £50K over nothing.
I respect your opinion that you think he is a misunderstood creative genius. I on the other hand think he is a massive pretentious bell-end.
*reads article with Molyneux £50 000 DLC* Manipulative, award winning (but not deserving) loud mouth, Whose games might be AAA only if his teams worked 10 times more than he talks.
if he didn't hype up his games soooooooooooooooo much they would be received so much better
ahahahah Peter Moulinex a genius? ahahahaha..oh guys, this make my day..ahahah
oh sweet Jesus, after many years of NOTHING, there is still someone who believes that Peter Moulinex is a genius. Yes! and I'm smarter than Einstein...
Peter Molyneux is a very talented but misguided developer who has let his ideas run away from him. Unfortunately his products are mediocre at best and are really only suitable for the Wii/casual games market.
one thing is clear about him. He is very passionate about creating games. But tries to hard to be different. He really should expolore the darker part of his imagination and create something more mature rated. I think he has the ability though.
Sorry i'm still aughing i can't click on the article contents yet .. i hope this is sarcastic
Is it just me or are there too many articles regarding this guy going on for the past few weeks?
He didn't make one single game that i can remember with Nostalgia all the Fables are Bad and some are OK... just that...
I don't get it: he keeps talking about games and consoles all the time and actually just criticizing more than anything... but he is nothing nowdays! He should just stfu and focus on an actual REAL and GREAT project. Not a hyped(fable3) and fake(Project Milo).
