After Fable II it became apparent to many in the industry, that Peter Molyneux had a habit of over promising and under delivering. Leading many to question his honesty when it came to the development of his games.
Fable II was an awesome game. Despite it's many flaws.
I love the fact that Peter speaks his mind..hes' passionate about his craft and is always reaching for the moon.. When he fails he is the FIRST one to put it out there to gamers..he's harder on himself than anybody in the gaming community I love it when he says this part of Fable 2 was 'rubbish' etc.. But the fact is 'Fable 2' was an absolute blast. I love RPGs but Fable 2 brought FUN back to the genre. Can't wait for Fable 3 and hope it lives up to Peter's 'lofty' expectations Evil
The first Fable was pretty cool.
It was, but it still doesnt excuse the fact that he promised the world for that game and only gave you a summer beach house.
I think Milo was created with the sole purpose of distracting Peter Molyneuxs arrogance away from fable 3 lol. He is bigging up milo like it is the most advanced AI in the world and surpasses anything that any of the computer geniuses have been doing for years! /jk I really want to be excited for Fable 3 but he is so deluded, although his intentions are to bring us a great game, his visions far outstrech his reach. Maybe next gen peter.
One thing that is so innovative about the AI in Milo is: " Milo's mind won't be on the disc -- it's in the cloud, and gets much smarter the more people use it." If he keeps his promise It's the first stage where AI and technology kill all of man-kind..
Something's wrong here.
loool one bubble for u :)
but you can fart ! FART he said !
Omg fable 3 is win because fatring is win. /shut off 13 year old humor module.
Abe farted first and it was possessable and explosive. Now that's a winning blast of ass gas!
Peter Molyneux is one of the best dev and he had great idea but yaah he speak before his doing the thing he speak i really enjoy B&W and Fable 2 ..
He had the reputation of over promising well before the first Fable showed up.
You try and make a game as complex as Fable and see where you end up.
Fable was alright, Fable 2 was way better, so I'm hoping 3 will be even better. I'd rather a new Elder Scrolls game though- Oblivion was the game Fable tried to be.
Take the Fable engine and make a straight Dungeons & Dragons game and you have a best-seller. Drop the farting and stupid humor (I'll watch Benny Hill reruns for that) and keep the sex and baby making (but relegate it to optional side quests that don't cause me problems if I don't go back home and buy new furniture, seriously, this ain't Oprah.)
Yup, i agree about Oblivion.
Peter Molyneux, you promised us an ocean of possibility with fable but ended up with only a pond of it.
But it's a pond you can pee in for fame!
Peter Molyneux could put you in a coma just by speaking to you
I've met him in real life at a talk in my college. He's actually a very charming person.
pretty well to me.
The industry needs ambitious guys like him to enhance and invigorate the game development. If everyone was dull and lacked the motivation to exceed their own abilities and expectations then we'd have recycled trash all year, every year. Basically, Peter needs to accept modern technological limitations, determine the most important aspects of a game and adhere to developing the core parts of his game without deviating off from the main objectives. Like Kojima, he has to realize that some things just can't work yet with our technology and develop the aspects of his game that CAN work.
Very well stated post. I agree, but I don't know how ambitious farting is.
Ok, I admit it. Some of my own personal farts are ambitious. They aim to displease and often succeed.
I bet you when he makes his next game he'll talk about how "terribly unfinished Fable 3 was"
Despite me buying this I think your right, but its ok for a developer to feel he/she needed to improve on their last game..
This article is out to attack Mr.Molyneux, the following line "At one point during development the game was plagued by 67,000 bugs and was the only game ever to receive a triple black rating from Microsoft's quality control." makes it seem like Fable 2 was released with all 67,000 bugs, it wasnt, just like other games they ironed them out. Troll article is troll.
Yeah, and troll hit pieces always give people credit too.
I hated the first, second fable. Yep im gonna pass on this one.
Fable was where he broke many promises.. Fable 2 was over-hyped, i cnt remember any big promises for Fable 2 that didn't make it to the game. Regardless I find Bethesda are just as bad as Molyneux when it comes yo promises
