Lionhead Studios

Designer and snake oil salesman Peter Molyneux has dared to criticize Kinect, admitting that it has some problems as an input device while still making sure to heap oodles of praise upon it.  “I’ll admit that...
Better watch out for those foreboding clouds! Here is the CGI trailer for Fable: The Journey, which looks much more appealing than the on-rails Kinect experience the game ultimately appears to be. I'm sure some of you will care enough about Fable to want this game, right? Fans like you exist, don't they? They have to.
Fable: The Journey has been revealed, and while Peter Molyneux calls it an immersive Fable experience, it looks pretty much like a rail shooter. The demo shown at the E3 press conference revealed a guy pulling off some pretty...
Developers love to make silly statements about secondhand games, and drawing parallels with piracy is a popular way of doing it. Far be it from Lionhead to be outdone, however, with Fable III's combat designer going so far as...
PC gamers looking forward to exploring the world of Albion and Fable III won't be forced to leave the house or using Games for Windows Marketplace. Microsoft has announced that Fable III will also be coming to Steam. The game...
Right before I looked at the new Fable III: Traitor's Keep DLC yesterday, I played around with Fable III for PC, as well as the mobile game Fable Coin Golf for Windows Phone 7. Fable III seems like a pretty straightforward po...
At the Microsoft showcase yesterday, I was put in charge of checking out the latest Fable III DLC pack, Traitor's Keep.  First, I have to make a confession: I haven’t played any of the other Fable games for more than twenty minutes, so I can’t give you the most expert analysis. However, I will gladly give you my two cents on what I saw. Read forth!
After a considerable amount of teasing, Lionhead Studios has settled on a date for the Windows version of Fable III: May 17 in the United States. This release will support Nvidia's 3D tech and include an exclusive hardcore mo...
Peter Douglas Molyneux is to be honored with a Lifetime Achievement award at the Game Developer Choice Awards during GDC. He will be handed this award in a ceremony hosted by none other than Tim Schafer. Moreover, Mega64 will...
Still playing Fable III? Really? No ... like, really? Wow, okay then. If that's the case, you might be interested to learn that Lionhead's latest is getting some new breeds of companion dogs to keep things vaguely interesting...
I wouldn't fault you for not knowing there even was a PC version of Fable III being made. There hasn't been a lot of talk about it lately, to the point where Lionhead had to come out and reassure everybody that it is, in fact...
If there's one word that categorically defines the Fable series, it has to be "promise." Fable has always been a franchise with promise, made by people who do nothing but promise. Each game is always pretty fun, but consisten...
Peter Molyneux held a talk at Eurogamer Expo last weekend and suffice to say, it was about Fable III. Thankfully it was not so much about the new game's features or some kind of PR presentation, but more about what influenced...
Ridiculously, Fable III will be the first time that actor Sir Ben Kingsley has voiced a videogame. For whatever reason, developer Lionhead Studios was the first to tap into the talents of the actor, who will voice Sabine, th...
Lionhead Studio's "game" that was probably just really always a tech demo anyhow, Project Milo, has been shelved, according to a source speaking with Eurogamer. Word is that the project was shut down earlier this week, with 1...
When I play Fable, I have a tendency to buy absolutely everything on the map as soon as I possibly can without resorting to killing everybody in a town (that usually comes later). And while I liked owning the properties and ...
Last month at the TED Conference, Lionhead CEO Peter Molyneux showed another demonstration of Milo & Kate. During his presentation, he speaks a bit about interacting with Milo and how no two people will create the sa...
Usually, Lionhead only gives us between one and three screenshots, and we're supposed to be grateful. I have no idea what we've done to deserve this veritable bounty, but the latest batch contains a full ten images, making th...
I think many of us will agree, most aspects of pre-order bonuses straight-up suck. We could get into how having multiple retailer-exclusive offerings is terrible, and how the entire system needs to go away, but for today, let...
While Lionhead's Fable III may support Kinect sometime in the future, don't expect it when the game ships this fall. Speaking with Joystiq, Lionhead studio boss Peter Molyneux has confirmed that whatever support was originall...
If you're the kind of person who thinks that seeing the entire intro cinematic to a videogame is a "spoiler," don't watch the above video. Why? Because it's the opening of Lionhead's Fable III in its entirety, as released by...
Originally scheduled to be released alongside the Xbox 360 version of the game, Microsoft has confirmed that Fable III for PC won't be seeing release on October 26. "The console and PC versions are now on different schedules ...
Tired of farting at the same old villagers? Lionhead and Microsoft have revealed the "Villager Maker" for Fable III, a pre-release tool that will allow you to create your own personalized character to import into the game. Th...
Well, how about that? Lionhead has actually released more than one screenshot for Fable III this time! Comic-Con is truly the land of wonders!  Fable III has not one, not two, but three brand new screenshots, which is th...
We saw Peter Molyneux showing off the Kinect title Milo & Kate at E3 2009, but we haven't heard much on the title since. He took Lionhead's newest demo for the title to the TED Global technology event in Oxford to show it...
The stories spreading yesterday that technology found in the "Milo" tech demo was used for the upcoming Kinectimals is incorrect, says David Braben, Chairman of Frontier Developments, the title's developer. "Kinecticals has b...
Contrary to what Aaron Greenberg has said, Lionhead has refuted the claim that Milo was a mere tech demo and won't be available for public consumption. On the contrary, there is currently a team of fifty people still working ...
Remember that really creepy demo of Kinect when it was first unveiled as Project Natal last year? I'm talking about the one with the kid who fished and made everyone watching him feel vaguely uncomfortable. At the time, we we...
Poking at and flicking animals with a PC mouse? Old school. In the future, why not just use your actual hands? Speaking with UGO, Black & White designer Peter Molyneux ponders the idea of bringing the series to Microsoft'...
At this morning's Microsoft E3 press conference, prior to a new trailer for Fable 3, Peter Molyneux announced the launch date for the game: October 26. Not to much longer for those who want to retune to Albion and get their royalty on, eh? Now, the trailer ends with "It's a revolution", and hopefully Molyneux and team can come up with the gameplay experience to back that up.
Lionhead has done that thing again where it releases a single screenshot for Fable III because that is apparently a great way to generate hype. People generally love getting their game content in tiny dribs and drabs, which i...
If there's one thing the games industry needs, it's more collector's editions, and far be it from Fable III to leave us wanting. Lionhead has today revealed the contents and pricing for its collector's edition, as well as con...
You've fragged, decapitated and teabagged all your buddies in countless online games over the years, but something's always been missing. You can't quite put your finger on it, but there's one thing you always felt you've nev...
Lionhead's Fable II and Bethesda's Fallout 3 have hit Xbox 360 Games on Demand for the reasonable cost of $19.99 and $29.99, respectively. As far as games are concerned, we're actually having a pretty good early 2010, with pl...
Microsoft thrall and game designer Peter Molyneux has confirmed that Fable III will be episodic, stating that "the first big episodes" will make up the main game, and smaller installments shall follow as DLC.  "I've ofte...
Well done Lionhead. Once again, we have Fable III screens to show you, but as always, there are barely any. Compared to last time, we now have double the screenshots for you. Unfortunately, double of one is ... two. Yes. We h...
Say one thing for Lionhead. Say it likes to keep us on a short leash with its teases. Not exactly giving us much to work with, the Microsoft thrall has released a single screenshot of upcoming life-changer Fable III.  Th...
Peter Molyneux does this funny little thing. Whenever he's working on a new game, he'll look back at the last game and tell us all how terrible it was. He did it with Fable when working on Fable II, and now he's doing it with...
Pathological promiser Peter Molyneux has promised that he's learned his lesson about over-promising. The brain behind Fable III is famous for building up exaggerated hype over each of his games. He's also well known for promi...
Wow, I've never seen Peter Molyneux get over-excited about a game before! This very first dev diary for Fable III does exactly what you'd expect from a Lionhead dev diary. It's full of people making huge promises about the g...
