CVG: Peter Molyneux has pointed to the Grand Theft Auto series as a major influence on Fable III.
LOL, what else is there to say?
So... we'll be seeing horses riding humans as glitches in Fable 3 as well? :p Ok, I kid. A bit. As far as using shops to sell items rather than lists... Wow... how inconsequential to the overall gameplay. @others: people should really read the article... they're not talking about anything other than how R* handled shopping. Nothing else.
That's good, as long as it doesn't turn into a borefest @below. What? Being influenced by Rockstar is not good? There's so much things a game like Fable could learn from R* games without being alike. Better open-ended world, character interaction, gameplay mechanics, mini games, voice acting, story telling and more. Red Dead Redemption is one of the highest rated games this gen and one of the top candidates for Game of the Year, i don't see how that game "sucked". Being influenced by those games is good...as long as it doesn't turn into a borefest (if not done correctly) It's your opinion but with all their games averaging so high...i fail to see how R* games "sucked" this gen (aside from personal opinion of course)
How is that good? First off Fable is nothing like R* games, Second R*s games have kinda sucked this gen. IMO.
For the PS3? Yeah. 360? No
suck? lol no, you might not like it, but hell, they don't suck.
Rockstar suck this generation. Are you mentally retarded? GTA IV rocked and so did Red Dead Redemption. Just look at their metacritc scores.
it doesn't suck, it just caters to a more specific group of gamers, like those playing games just for fun, instead caters to those who plays patiently and enjoy the story. same goes to rdr, though i didn't enjoy the storyline, feels like a bunch characters (good ones though) just tossed into the world and do their stuff. characters in rdr are some of the best in video games.
Ya what with GTAIV running better on PS3, Red Dead running worse. But that's only a very, very, very small part about what either game is about... they are essentially the same, and suck, or succeed in tandem. But yep, they have kinda sucked this gen, the rockstar game I've enjoyed most was actually midnight club - la, probably because that game doesn't have a crappy driving handling model, and doesn't take it seriously.
The ballad of Gay Tony was one of the best games I played this year.
did suck pretty much this gen... well maybe GTAIV alone i really liked dead read redemption
Please no. Does that mean that Fable 3 will be boring too? R* games are insanely boring and overrated imo.
no wonder the graphics look like a PS2 game.
people actually think r* sucks...the world is bigger than i thought.....:p
How does GTA relate to Fable? Molyneux offically lost it. Is guess fable 3 will be all about whores, running over pedestrians and shootouts.
"I think things like Grand Theft Auto [have influenced us] - the way they use shops rather than doing lists is great," he said. "We've used some of that, especially in The Sanctuary area. I just feel the way that entertainment is going is trying to give us less and less complexity or 'fiddly-ness' and more accessibility." Molyneux promised fans that Kinect connectivity in the game wouldn't be wasted on "some crass mini-game where you jump around and kick chickens", adding that: "Sitting back and playing with your controller and then accessing Kinect as you do that just gives you cool stuff."
Not going to click the link, I can smell the bullshit from here. Molyneux needs to stop hyping up his games like this.
I think Peter has zipped his mouth for Fable 3.. Definitely less hype around it, would give him a lot of credit if this was a huge success.
the only people that think R* sucks are retards....R* caters to their fans and actually listens to us fable 2 rocked and i hope this one will too
tedious man dates confirmed for fable 3. On a serious note. GTA 4 did alot of things very well. Hopefully molyneux can stop hyping his game much like the last 2 times and deliver the best fable yet.
Still no intrested by fable 3
I think the shop idea is good, and i'm glad they've looked at other games and copied little things like that, which helped bring down the average review score. Personally all i think Fable 3 needs is to make the monsters more scary, look at how games like Alan Wake are soo creepy. A mature story line, or atleast a story with depth would be nice.. I want to get sucked into the story like Zelda, Final Fantasy VI, Half Life 2, Grand Fandango, Deus Ex or Bioshock 1 Finally, when i played assasins Creed 2, I thought the Villa would be perfect for Fable 3.
meaning they are in the top 10%....only a FOOL/internet NERD would say otherwise... lol :)
