Peter Molyneux told MTV at GDC that Fable 1′s death mechanic was rubbish.
“We started with saying that ‘The way death worked in “Fable I” was just so tedious,’” said the Lionhead boss, talking of the process of constructing Fable II’s dying set-up.
“There are certain games that, as a game player — not as a designer but purely as a game player — I found very, very frustrating, which ended up as barriers for me going any further in the game. ‘Grand Theft Auto‘ was one of those games. I just found it super-frustrating to have to restart the game.”

Speaking on the Battle.net forums, Blizzard poster “Bashiok” has confirmed that Diablo III will use a dungeon check-pointing system as a way to deal with death.
“Throughout your adventures, and generally at the ends of each ‘floor’ of a dungeon your character is saved to a checkpoint,” he said. “When you die you’re dropped back at the last checkpoint with a small amount of health, and the rest regenerates slowly.
“It’s obviously a very forgiving system as it is. It’s just too early to put a ton of thought in to what penalties there should be, if any, added on top of it.”
“Early” is not a word we like seeing used in association with Diablo III’s development. More through the link.
