Peter Molyneux’s “a talentless bastard”. Oh don’t worry – he said it himself.

There was this amazing moment when a piece of research came back [that showed us] more than half the people who played Fable II understood and used less than half the features in the game,” the Lionhead boss said in an interview with CVG.

And as soon as you see that you think: ‘Oh my God. What a talentless bastard I really am.’

How can I have made a game in which people actually understood less than half of its mechanics? It’s like making a film that makes people think: ‘It looks quite cool. I don’t know what the hell is going on, but it seems quite cool.’ You know, that’s just wrong,” he further added.

Last week at X10, he said he would “piss off” people with an aspect of Fable III.

Turned out, he was just removing the HUD and leveling up mechanics from the RPG.

He pissed off a total amount of 0 people.

Fable III’s out by the end of the year.
