Videogame snake oil salesman Peter Molyneux has declared that modern games are becoming boring, due to them all being the same. Fortunately, he's making an on-rails shooter for Kinect, which is pretty radical and differ ... oh. 

"I love new ideas and innovation. I'm trying to think of a more diplomatic way of saying this, but I'm just a little bit bored of doing things the same way in games," he said in Xbox World 360 magazine. "While I love all the drama of modern games there is this sameness about it. 

"They're essentially the same -- one's got a green palette, one's got a grey palette; you're shooting and ducking and diving and it just seems almost on the point of being a little bit like Hollywood where they have got into this rut with their action films."

So, Peter Molyneux is bored with games that are the same. If that's the case, why did he release Fable three times over?

Destiny had the 'largest console beta ever' for a new IP

Did you get in on the Destiny beta? I did, but only after access was opened to all. Managed to play for about an hour which, after the cut scenes and loading, wasn't enough time for me to get a true sense of how I feel about ...more
