Fable III Dev Lobs a Few Word Bombs at the Haters

By most accounts, including Susan Arendt's, Fable III was no masterpiece. It was good, sure, the game had some great features while others that were just annoying. Both the critical and commercial reception to the game was a collective, "Meh." True to the shining example of Lionhead Studio's fearless leader - Peter Molyneux - lead combat designer Mike West had some choice words for those who didn't like his game, while talking about what PC gamers can expect with the port that is available today.

meh, get Molyneux to stop talking about non-existent features and experiences and that's half if not two thirds of complaints ended right there.

... but instead of focussing on useless 'gimmicks' like a dog and holding hands and that kinda stuff...

... they should focus on challenging fun gameplay and a great deep long story.

They've made the newer games much too easy, which might be 'nice' for reeling in a new 'casual' audience, but is just boring for many gamers who want to have a challenge when they play a game.

Just fix the gameplay!

@Yi-Long: Very well said. That is exactly the issue I have Fable 3. The first was so engrossing and I could not put it down. On this latest installment, I was so bored that after 4 hours I couldn't play anymore. A fricking Muppet could play it without issue.

I actually liked the dog and I think they did some research, and that was a big thing emotionally.

The other half or third being how they've been dumbing things.

As Yi-Long said, they need to stop worrying about gimmicks and improve on gameplay.

Typically when people speak negatively about Peter Molyneux it is justified.

Godmars290 summed it up rather well

""This is definitely the best Fable PC - it's much better than Fable 1," West said."

This statement just disturbed me... considering he's lead combat designer Mike West. -_-

Out of all the stupid that was leaving his mouth it was that sentence that angered me the most.

cliffbo2484d ago

peter molyneux has been talking shit all his life he aint going to change now.

Pfft! Get real dude. Your game is ok at best, Combat is mediocre, your ceo says anything that comes to his mind the milisecond it gets there, just make a damn better game and hush.
