There goes all my enthusiasm for working at Lionhead in my samwich year...
Couldn't agree more. Dungeon Keeper was the last game from Molyneux that I actually enjoyed. He has some fun ideas, but I never get the impression he's a particularly good game developer these days.SonOfVoorhees said:Not a huge loss, hasnt made anything truly great in 15 years. I sometimes wonder if the limits of earlier computers was what made him shine. But now he has freedom to do almost anything with today technology he tries to hard to add everything instead of making a solid game and adding stuff if there is time. He talks big ideas but never follows through.
Maybe he will stick to smaller games that will be limited but awesome.
Unfortunately, he's already promised the new franchise will be bigger than a million Superbowls.The_root_of_all_evil said:Wow...
Well, if anyone can build a new world, it's Molyneux. Even if it's just castles in the sky, they're going to be beautiful - if slightly...wonky.
Fable 4 will offer a unique gameplay experience like no other. The engine has been redesigned from the ground up, and anything you can possibly imagine can be done in the game. Want to marry an octopus? You can do it. Want to sneak into the King's house and dress him up as Madonna? Go for it! Want to Resurrect Jimi Hendrix and grow him to monstrous proportions so he can have an epic battle Rap with Tupac Shakur? It's in there!dogstile said:*Ahem*
Seriously, where will i get my hilarious overexaggerations for the fable games now?
The Gentleman said:That strikes me as a way of saying "yeah, I'm going to try and make a harem of female gamers."Andy Chalk said:Molyneux will continue to work on the new Fable title, Fable: The Journey, as a creative consultant, but according to MCV [http://www.mcvuk.com/news/read/peter-molyneux-quits-lionhead-and-microsoft/092391] his name will now be on a door at 22 Cans, a new venture launched in January by former Lionhead Chief Technical Officer Tim Rance. What the boys plan to get up to hasn't been revealed, but it's a safe bet that videogames will somehow be involved.
