here is another thread about video games

i just read a preview at ign about fable and the guy was pretty much creaming his pants about it and the game looked really really nice but then i said to myself:

PETER MOLYNEUX MADE BLACK AND WHITE AND HE MADE FABLE

so this makes me very wary because black and white was like a kick in the balls and fable is getting exactly the same kind of hype

another thing that makes me worried is that the main character grows horns if he gets evil which is kind of what your temple did in black and white if you were evil

right now this is making me contemplate finally getting a (premodded) xbox which would be pretty expensive so i need to know if this game is going to really be good or not kthx

I played it an GamesConvention Leipzig it seemed fun. But then again so did Black&White during the first 15 minutes.

When I was mentioning Fable to my girlfriend her response was:

"What, so it's like Black and White then?"

And then I realised it kinda is.

Wasn't Black&White getting like 9-10/10 reviews back in the day? I never played it, but... what happened?

Molyneux also made Dungeon Keeper, theme park, populous, syndicate wars and a few others.

I don't think that Fable will a new screensaver [Smile]

Because it started out very well and it was a very new idea. Although after you've played it for a few hours, you start to notice more and more dumb things (one of the little quests you had to do was basically "navigate around this spiral mountain using our terrible camera controls") and realize that a lot of what was promised wasn't actually in the game.

Molyneux is a hype machine. He said Fable is going to be the best RPG ever. There was a ton of hype about Black & White and it did not live up to expectations. Now that Fable is being hyped in the same way by the same person, it makes me worried. Already a lot of things we were promised (planting an acorn when you are a child and having it grow up into a big tree by the time you're an adult, having children, being able to play as a girl, one huge world to explore any way you want) have been removed.

I enjoyed flinging my creature's own poo at it...or at the villagers for that matter. If I recall you could kill them with it.
