Fable: The Journey
E3 2011: Molyneux Made a "Horrendous Mistake" During Fable: The Journey Demo
Written By
View author's profile

Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux reckons he made a major gaff during the E3 demo of Kinect game Fable: The Journey. He wants to apologise.

During the demo, as Molyneux presented, somebody was waving his arms at the Kinect motion sensor in what looked exactly like an on-rails experience. But Molyneux forgot to say, that isn't the case at all.

He has since spent the rest of the week trying to set the record straight. He told OXM, "I made a horrendous mistake on the press demo of taking out the navigation allowing players to move. I will just say on record now that Fable: The Journey is definitely not on rails."

Conversely, journalists witnessing the behind closed doors demo of the game this week say no, it actually is on-rails. So who's telling the truth? We'll set the record straight with our preview soon.

What about the "Horrendous Mistake" he made, that was fable 3?

Sorry, but I will never buy another Fable game. The first one is the only one I've kept.

Molyneux should never be trusted with what he says about his own games, no offense to him as a game maker, the fable series is quite good, however he makes them out to be way better than they are.

of interacting with towns folk, also it didn't even feel like an RPG anymore.

@1 Dude there is no way Fable 3 is a bad game, personally It was my favorite one. Now Fable 2 on the other hand pissed me off when it first came out. But now that they fixed a lot of the bugs it is much better.

The Fable franchise is pretty much dead anyway, mistakes or not, PM only has himself to blame for running this franchise into the dirt.

The only way they could bring this franchise back is if they make a real sequal to the first game, bring back the original hero, and for gods sake they need to deal with Theresa's story once and for all and stop having her as a background character.

The original Fable was great. Fable II was actually really good, I enjoyed it quite a lot although a lot of people didn't.

Fable III however... I'm just not feeling it. I like it and all, and I'll probably get all of the points for it. But it seems like such a step back from everything else.

They keep over-simplifying everything with each new game (and funnily enough, if this new one is on-rails, then it's even simpler) and just dumb it down to it not being fun.

On the other hand, they made easy things complex and annoying, i.e. the stupid map of Fable III, and the Sanctuary, etc. The Sanctuary was cool at first, now it's stupid. I wish it was more of an option in a menu or something.

They need to return Fable back to its roots. I enjoy the idea of being king in the new game, but it's not quite what I expected at all. Not as large of a scale or as cool as it could have been.

Do better already, Lionhead. Stop getting crappier.

Everybody posting here must be new to video games. Every game dev in history has touted a feature or two of their new game that never came to light. This is nothing new. Get over it.

If you don't like something, you don't have to verbally bash it everywhere you are given the chance. Just don't support that company. Why play Fable 3 when you didn't even like the second one? Just so you have something to bitch about? Play the games you like, don't play the ones you don't like, and grow up.

If you think he is lying, don't support his company. No need for personal attacks of character here.

And why the Hell does everyone want to play a sequel exactly like it's predecessor?? I want a brand new game with a 2 or 3 on the title! You'd be pissed if a movie sequel were the same as the first, so why not hold the same standards for games? If you like the first one so much, then play the first one and let everyone else move on.

Given his track record post Bullfrog I think, for once, I'll believe the journos. :P Fable 2 was v. good, I've not actually played the first which is a tad amiss of me. Fable 3 annoyed the shit out of me but I still finished it. In fact I played it through plus side quests constantly primarily so I could get a higher trade in value for it.

Why do people write off the entire Fable series because they didn't like Fable 3? One bad game (which wasnt even bad in my opinion) doesnt make the entire series shit.

Otherwise Halo (ODST anyone?) and many more would be in trouble!

Hahahah, well, if the people who played the demo are saying it is on-rails, that means it is. Hell, if some mile high crackhead who has never played a video game in his life said it was on-rails, I would believe him over Peter Molyneux. The dude is a stage 3 compulsive liar at best.

"On-rails" means that movement is pre-determined by the game, and your only responsible for other things like aiming, or shooting (think Pokemon Snap, or train cart sequences in GoW, DK Country, etc.).

OT: I didn't even know about this demonstration, I thought the demo was referring to the teaser trailer that came out a few days ago.

I just bought a Kinect like 4 weeks ago.. played Kinect Adventures, and Yoostar 2 In the Movies. They were fun for about an hour... i havent played my Kinect since... Fable Kinect.. I'll pass... I agree with #42.. I don't want to be the controller... Unless my movements mirror the onscreen character throughout the entire game.. say a 3rd person action game, or maybe a shooter... tho aiming would be tough.. otherwise.. Kinect, to me, is just a novelty like Wii(After an hour or 2 i was bored and done with it also) Quit focusing on the retarded Kinect, and get some new game IP's...

From what I understand after watching hours and hours of E3 coverage, the truth is somewhere in the middle. You do spend a lot of time on the horse cart, but you can leave the cart and fight enemies and such. However, if I understood this right, you can't go very far away from the cart on the sequences that let you. Basically on the occasions where you can leave the cart, you're tied to a certain area. Yeah, terrible. Peter Molyneux is incredibly overrated. At their core the Fable series is pretty good, but then Molyneux adds worthless stuff like the Touch feature in Fable 3 and now this horse thing. The games are just getting worse and worse. And really Fable 2 wasn't all that great anyway.

There's a lot of hate in here for Fable...
I'm not going to argue with you, it deserves most of it. The games are fine, great even. But they are factually not what they are purported as being.

That said, This is the man who made Dungeon Keeper. I know it's a cliche but still, he was good at his job once. If there's even the slight possibility that every game he makes is closer to getting him back to that point then god-dammit, I'll still cross my fingers for this game being the one. Deluded as it sounds (as it is)I WANT this game to be good. We all should, because Peter Molyneux was awesome, once.

#1 Yeah Fable 3 was an horrendous was Fable 2....the only good game was the original Fable.....all they are are sub-par fantsay RPGs with poor combat, graphics, depth and maturity. Molyneux builds his games up so much and they're always disappointing. Well not any more. This, and all other Fable games will be awful.

Wait the demo isn't hands on is it? I don't think so.. If I am right then I would much rather trust peter then a bunch of sweaty Journo's sitting well away from the screen and the person playing it. Sure he has said some things that are not true in the pas but I doubt he would outright lie like this, and also I doubt he would be stupid enough to ruin the series by making an on rail.

Fable 1 = Great, Fable 2 = Great, Fable 3 = Good. The things that made fable 3 not as good were not bad features, just different from what we were use to and maybe not as good. I am hoping this is good game, not hoping for a great since it is Kinect.

First he asks if people at some kind of convention want a Kinect Fable almost all say no so he says "They must have though they'd have to run in place to play" so he goes ahead and makes a Kinect Fable and now when everyone complains about hating how the Kinect Fable is on rails he probably had the whole thing changed from rails to free roam so expect the game to be half done upon release or for it to not come out for a long time. The first two fables were great games it's just lost all its spirit at this point and they're not caring and just making them for profit and not caring about their fan base.

Lionhead is the first game studio to ever make games where they get worse rather than better.
fable 1 was brilliant Fable 2 was also
Fable 3 was ok but had way to many issues and so much cut out.

Just because 25 people sign there name doesn't mean the game is not on rails. IT DOESN'T PROVE ANYTHING!

How about just giving us more Fable 3 DLC?
Fable 2 had some awesome stuff, but this one has had like one with achievements and one without!?

Well he already came out and said that he lies about his games. So why should we trust you now, Molyneux?

He speaks about his game probably the same way your parents speak about you to others.

It could be on rails or not on rails, it's still going to be a progressively worse Fable game. Wish this guy would quit making games and just sell used cars.

Really, Peter? Okay, it might not be "on-rail", but you can't disguise the fact that you are riding along a set path, not really getting to deviate from it, yeah, not a railshooter... It's a groundbreaking, trendsetting new thing! "CARRIAGESHOOTER"! no no.... He should really learn to be quiet... Still remember the live interview with him, where the only comments to F:J was how sucky it looked, and the girl watching the twitterfeed had to come up with a question for him....sad....

Still, I must say, I enjoyed Fable 2 and 3, but the hype pissed me off, and Peter didn't deliver on most of his promises, and the ending to Fable 2 was just him taking a shit in your cereal....goddamnit, it sucked...

The fable series has a lot of promise, but someone should be hired to smack Peter with a stick when ever he promises to much, and give him a wedgie whenever he makes some stupid remarks about originality in his games...

But then again, we are talking about the man who thought that he could help RARE get a better image....jeebus....

@95, Just because ONE Fable sucked, you're not going to try any more?

What the hell is everyone's problem with Fable? Yeah Fable 3 wasn't as good as it's previous brothers but still, that doesn't mean you have to hate on the whole series.

I really want the new fable but I don't want to get a damn kinect I don't have the space to play it. I think they should release 2 versions of games one with kinect playability and one where it isn't required needed or anything else. or make it like a bonus add on I hate games where they require you to have the kinect for the achievements and what not. :(

So his 'horrendous mistake' was that he forgot to spread more lies?

Though to be fair, it is time for Fable to get on the Kinect, i mean the series clearly is trying to dumb itself down to appeal to the lowest common denominator, they may as well go all the way...

I hope this down sound too conspiracy theorist, but my bet is that, if anything, he's really announcing here a redirection for the development of the game, given the poor reaction to the idea of Fable on rails. It doesn't sound like a great idea to me, and I've enjoyed all of the Fable games so far.

I agree 100%. The whole point of dying in a game is to set you back a hell of a lot. Not "Oh I lost a single guild seal, it's not like I have 999 of them..." I really wish that dying was a more punishing obstacle. Also bring back Mana so I can't just spam spells to win every damn fight.

I want to ask, would anyone REALLY care if this had been on "on the rails" game? I would personally like it, take me back to an almost "house of the dead" style game, but with fable elements. I would be happy with it.

Poor number 12 on rails game- a game that is completely linear and pretty much has no moving by yourself like old arcade shooters such as carn-evil

I smell a spin off dont go looking this way for fable 4 to redeem fable 3 it doesnt go on track to fable 1 an 2 in fact its perfecly off track (in an on track literally kind of way)

Molyneux is the equivalent to an E-Z Bake Oven. It looks great! It smells great! It seems so amazing!

Then when you finally open it, you have foil-wrapped shit that tastes good enough until you get an entirely different baked good. One that works.

C'mon Peter, just make a game that lives up to the promises you made of the original Fable. It would probably be your best game ever.

i agree that the fable games dont seem to get better but i still enjoyed all 3 of them so far. and yep fable 3 was a bit dissapointing but i was also kinda dissapointed in the second game cuse i thought it was too short. bottom line is i think that all 3 of them were enjoyable to play.

fable 2 was my favorite fable then i got the first one it was good fable 3 seemed more like a arcade in between so does this i think with fable 3 they were doing stuff for it then heard about kinect droped fable 3 and started this either way just the gameplay looks on rails not realy a bad thing

I like the simplicity of the Fable series. It's really refreshing in a time where developers like to over-complicate RPGs to make it feel complex and engrossing (Oblivion, anyone?)

The good thing is that the core gameplay always stays the same, but the little tweaks make it seem a lot more different, so you know you're not just playing the previous game with new textures and a new story.
