CVG: Lionhead designer thanks press for "patience and belief" in mostly positive reviews
Well as the bugs and faults slip out it makes you wonder what else accompanied his letter begging for good reviews.
I hate how dramatic his statements usually are. I'm talking about Molyneux the person, not the developer. p.s: lol @ open zone comments xD
Maybe it came with a picture of him and his dying pet? Or pictures of kittens?
Obviously you haven't played it cuz, this game is FREAKIN AWESOME!!! Molyneux is a little over emotional, but gotta give him credit for being compassionate about his work. I mean would you rather someone like him or guys over at EA who put out generic garbage.
Don't worry man. Someday the PS3 will get an awesome exclusive RPG. Just not today.
i cant stand this idiot.
because he got owned by the GAF and pete didn't
LOL i wonder if Molyneux and Dyack go to support groups together or have the same therapist
Atleast hes not a stuck up doucheface.
Your right.Molyneux is ten times the man that CliffyB is
lol emotional. Skittles!
So is he punching through dry wall because there are some 8's, is he crying because there are 8's, or is he having tears of joy because he made his mommy proud?
Damned if you do, damned if you don't, eh?
Why mention his mom? She is probably six feet under so I'd be careful what you say next time. Seriously not cool dude.
I'm sorry if I'm trying to put a little comical relief in my comments. I think you're being as babyish as Mr. Molyneux right now. Don't take stuff so seriously. Besides, you really think Peter Molyneux will take a stroll to the N4G comments? I don't think so. Like he has the time to come to come on here or even care about what people not as successful as him have to say. He wouldn't care either way. You think my comment was disrespectful? You should see the utter trash that comments in the open zone.
WOW, I know a lot of sony fans here get jealous with 360 exclusives but talking about somebody's mom like that is just plain childish.
"because there are some 8s" Uhm, yeah, 8.9/10 average. Pretty damn good.
It's odd that many PS3 games get slammed for having no multiplayer or no single player and Fable 2 is given a free pass on its online co-op.
In their defense, it arrived in a day one patch.
Yeah but none of the reviews have been considered with co-op in mind, however their score has been based on the fact that co-op is coming. If the co-op was seriously broken, that could affect the review score. But we now don't know anything about the co-op from the reviews. I'm not saying the Fable 2 reviews are incorrect, rather that the reviews of games without a Single Player/Multiplayer component are unjustified in using that as a criticism. It's like rating a movie down because it doesn't have any interactive elements.
Well Socom is multiplayer only...so...idk That game should have been ready at launch though, so I could understand it's score. I'm sure the game will be fine, and as long as reviewers state that Socom will improve over time thats good. However Socom definitely deserved it's score being that it didn't deliver on day. Especially when the game is only multiplayer, the reviewers had nothing else to comb through
I take the criticism that "it doesn't have a multiplayer/singleplayer" to be more of a criticism of the mode the game DOES have. Like no one complained about BioShock having no multiplayer because the single player was awesome. I agree that if the online coop ends up being broken on Fable 2, I'd be annoyed at the review. However, if there's no technical problems, the coop and single-player are sort of the same content, aren't they? Ultimately magazines/websites want their review to be up as soon as possible and they didn't want to lose traffic by waiting a week to try out the coop.
I donno.. so what if he's a bit emotional over it. It's gotta be massive presure to deliver a game that is well receieved. (huge money/hopes on the line) And then there's all you 15 year old "pro testastrone" guys who would fear to cry if your leg got cut off. :) i donno guys, who the f cares. Hope it's a good game.
that just shows his insecurity and lack of faith in his game.
The game is a hit. Its selling excellently, and getting stellar reviews. The man isnt allowed to feel emotion over his success?
Someone who takes their work seriously. :) Good to see. Devoted to his projects.
Ahhh thats made me emotional.
How is that in anyway ironic? Do you even know what ironic means? If you mean that your insults are ironic with pp then no, it's not irony, it's just insults.
If I created a game which surpassed all my expectations and was truly a classic game I think I would be a little bit emotional too...
I think as long as he noticed the reviewers playing it in many different ways he was overwhelmed. I don't think the average score affected him as much.
Not a big surprise there. Peter is prone to emotional outbursts. He's probably a PR nightmare for MS when he gets in front of the microphone. Honesty and emotion are bad for press and politics.
It shows that he really cares about the games he makes. They are almost like his children, and he is incredibly happy that Fable 2 is doing well.
Well said my friend. Some developers just put their heart and soul in their game. He's clearly happy with the result.
i like games like these, where u can become anything you want ! an stuff etc. =[ ill wait for the pc version i guess
because lionhead is a microsoft game studios in house studio http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
PM and Cliffy....omg...2 of the biggest outspoken clowns in the industry. They cant shine Ted Prices shoes.
but they both make much better games than you do.
They make better games than ted price too no generic resistance and ratchet games from cliffy or peter.
^ ratchet generic??its a planet to planet adventure/shooter/platformer tbh, i dont really know any other game like it. possibly jak3. what do you call big unrealistic guys always comming to save the planet from some random aleins time after time. On topic: its good to see he actually cares. most devs would probably go "meh".
Who is Ted Price?
What do you expect..... What is this game again. I never heard of it, seriously.
Fable 1 got the same reviews. (I think a bit better actually) We all know what happens in two months. Molyneux goes on a message board, says he failed gamers and Fable 2 was terrible trash, and then he promises (again) that his next game will live up to his other promises. Also, I'm going to destroy this site. How dare you put me in the open zone?!!!?
this game should have got almost all 9's and 10's. It's a better sandbox game than GTA 4 and a great RPG on top of that.
Welcome to the worst generation in history.. Filled with the worst gamers in history. Its pretty pathetic all around.. Fable 2 sucked though and was bug filled so he had it coming.
I think your confusing Fable 2 with SOCOM. :)
#1) You've not played Fable II. #2) Professional gaming journalists -- who have played Fable II -- are telling you the game is excellent. Please, stop being ridiculous.
so he had no faith in his game?
the fact he hyped it and then surprised with 89% score.
Its no suprise he's emotionally and happy. Fable 2 is going to sell *very very* well, and the reviews are just stellar. His work has resulted in a bona-fide hit.
"It's odd that many PS3 games get slammed for having no multiplayer or no single player and Fable 2 is given a free pass on its online co-op. " WTF are you talking about? No one will own the game without online-co-op. You dont even make sense.
Picking this up Day one cant wait : ).
