    I can't even put into words how stupid you sound.

    Exactly what it was though, unless you were a dribbling loyalist.

    It had elements from other games -- like almost every game made in the last 20 years has had -- sure. Unless you're a dribbling anti-Peter-Molyneux-because-he-said-something-about-an-acorn-and-a-tree hate monger, you'd see there was much more to the game than farting in people's faces and decorating houses.

    Yeah there was, a shit RPG. Which was somewhat let off for being a shit RPG because it was on the 360 and had Fable in the title.

    Fable II was great because of the dog. I love dogs, every game should have a dog companion. EVERY GAME.

    The dog in Fable 3 was shit, and Fallout 3.

    I think Fae could turn out better with someone else in charge. It was painfully obvious t o anyone who played the first 30 minutes of Fable 2 that PM would never achieve what he wanted to in the series. Whether that was down to his failings or Microsoft not giving him the time to do this is up for debate.

    I personally liked the first Fable even though it took way to long to make and PM massively over hyped the game knowing he didn't have the technology to pull it off. But I don't think he had an excuse for Fable 2 and 3 other than being forced to hit deadlines by MS. You look at what he promised before Fable and since then there has been Oblivion and Skyrim which prove to some extent that level of freedom could be done (on console).

    He should have left after Fable 2 IMO, though at least he can work on a new franchise now. Which is good news for all.

    Molyneux does sequels, but we've never had a sequel to Powermonger or Fusion, so get it on!

    I don't know why anyone cares about what he does any more, he hasn't been legitimate since Bullfrog 10+ years ago.

    Fable is the strangest series because each new one made the core game shitter and shitter.

    After the first one I thought Lionhead would have seen that it was the decent action-adventure game with RPG elements that people liked. Not the marriage/house/rent/changingrooms sections.

    Insead in each new game the adventuring/stealing/fighting parts were furthur simplified while the redudunt and rubbish changing rooms sections were expanded making the combat/story stale, boring and a chore.

    also Lord Lucian and Logan cannot compare to Maze & Jack of Blades as villans.

    I've always been a fan of the Molynator, mainly because he has some vision beyond lets make a new x game. He tries to push the boundaries and take games in different directions, he never seems to quite deliver but I love that he tries.

    I also have a lot of time for the Fable series, sure it's not the best action RPG out there but it's also not same as all the others. Not having god-damn-mother-fucking Orcs and Elves wins it a lot of extra points too.

    “If I would come into this Spring Showcase – and let’s imagine if the world was the other way round. Imagine if we had Kinect and I came in and said look, this is the best gaming device in the entire world, and you said, ‘Oh really? What’s it do?’ You can use your thumb, this finger and this thumb – you’d slaughter me!”

    Molyneux added further, in what must be a candidate for quote of the year, to compare the controller to UK teen soap Hollyoaks.

    “There’s got to be more, man. There’s got to be more than that. This is like the Hollyoaks of gaming. I mean, it is,” he said.
    What the actual fuck?

    It kind of makes sense. He's bored of standard input devices and is looking for something new other than the same experience across the board i.e. generic FPS/RPG/Action Adventure game.

    Its what drives some of the more creative developers out there, such as Miyamoto, but doesn't fit with the rest of the industry, who prefer to standardise control schemes.

    I'm somewhere in the middle tbh.

    I've always disliked the beige cunt to be honest.

    These rumours of kiddy fiddling have come as no suprise to me.

    The big trouble with control interfaces and immersion for me has always been the lack of physical feedback. Rumble in pads and the iFeel mouse was a step in the right direction, flailing at the air a step away from it, ultimately, I think.

    Although it might be possible to add air rumble with un-deafening bass type sounds, maybe... or maybe that would just make you shit yourself in front of your console, I dunno.

    Anyway, physical feedback. How do we get it while retaining body motion as a control method?

    Without some sort of rumble suit, it's not particularly possible, and you'd look like a total moron wearing one, least of all if you can bother to strap yourself into it every time you want a quick play on something. Probably not realistically gonna happen until they work out a way to interface with your brain and control you like a meat puppet.

    That video of his kid making a plea to valve and he spends the entire time hovering about in the background desperately plugging himself and his games.

    Here it is.



    What a cunt.

    Yeah, the big problem with wearables has always been A) you look like a twat and B) you smell like one after not very long too.

    I'm not sure it's impossible. When I went to see Rammstein I was rumbled very effectively by the sound system and not always in the noisy bits either. It must be possible to vibrate people without deafening them (or their neighbours) and I'm sure you could also play around with some sort of targeting projection with air-manipulation too so that you were only affecting bits of them.

    It would cost a bomb, though and still wouldn't solve the problem that most of our sense of touch is in our hands and without a controller in our hands, we feel fuck all in response to our actions.
