Nice timing! Lionhead brings out new Fable forums

Are you ready for another installment of Fable? Lionhead Studios has decided that the week before E3 is a good time to launch new Fable forums, which I'm sure it is. But the end result is speculation that this is a sign of an impending game...

Review: Fable: The Journey

The fatal flaw of Kinect games is that they are built on a foundation of lies. You are the controller -- except most games control much of the action themselves to make up for the lack of input. It's more immersive -- except the waving of y...


Preview: Fable: The Journey

I have a bit of a sordid history with the Fable franchise. Despite the now-infamous promises it never delivered on, I absolutely adored the first Fable, as what was delivered was a finely crafted game, and one of my favorite RPG titles of a...


E3: Fable: The Journey is not on-rails, kind of

Lionhead Studios is no stranger to making spin-offs for Fable. The first was an Xbox Live Arcade tie-in with Fable II called Pub Games, which was a collection of mini-games that appeared in the game and would allow you to carry over the gol...


E3: Fable: The Journey pegged for Holiday 2012

At Microsoft's E3 press conference, it was revealed that Kinect's TOTALLY NOT ON-RAILS GUYS Fable spin-off, Fable: The Journey will be available for the holiday season of 2012. One can reasonably expect to see it at some point in November o...


Review: Fable Heroes

One part hack, one part slash, and one part four-player cooperative Fable with puppet heroes. Fable Heroes would be the last thing you would expect Lionhead Studios to come up with if Fable: The Journey hadn't been announced already. In tru...


Molyneux accepts 'personal failure' for Fable III

It's a glorious day, because I get to talk about the Molyneux Cycle once more. It's the method by which Molyneux attempts to make his next game look good by trash talking the last one he made -- the last game being one he hyped to the moon ...


Molyneux: Milo was too emotional for the games industry

Remember Milo, the digital child-creature that Peter Molyneux demoed at E3 so long ago? It promised interaction on a level that would make Skynet jealous, but it disappeared after all the hype. Why was it thrown on the scrap heap? Molyneux ...


The DTOID Show: GDC 2012 Wrap-up!

Did you catch today's live Destructoid Show? We're all thoroughly exhausted from GDC, but Hamza Aziz, Jordan Devore, and Conrad Zimmerman were good sports and stopped by the studio for some good old-fashioned video game discussion. Today's...


Peter Molyneux leaving Lionhead, forming 22 Cans

Preview: Bring out your inner child with Fable: Heroes

Perhaps the biggest surprise at Microsoft’s recent Xbox 360 spring showcase was the announcement of Fable: Heroes for Xbox Live Arcade. Built by some of Lionhead’s biggest Fable fans, Heroes pays homage to many of the series&rs...


Preview: Discovering the emotion of Fable: The Journey

If it is one thing the controller cannot do anymore, it’s offer a player “that sense of discovery which we had with the early days of games.” That’s what Peter Molyneux, the visionary behind Fable: The Journey beli...


Countdown timer points to Lionhead announcement at GDC

There's a countdown timer on Lionhead Studios' website. It seems that the website will see a refresh in a few days, but the text also hints that "other surprises are coming." Right now it's just a red button (hint?) and a timer. Counting ah...


Rumor: Fable IV out 2013, probably not on rails

I suppose this shouldn't come as a shock, but rumors are now saying that Lionhead is currently working on Fable IV. Peter Molyneux and company are said to be prepping the sequel for a 2013. The rumor comes from the latest issue of Official ...


No melee in Fable: The Journey (because it's on rails)

Peter Molyneux has confirmed that his definitely-not-on-rails game Fable: The Journey will not feature melee combat, focusing instead on projectile-based magic attacks. Not that this is going to be an on-rails shooter or anything, because i...


Molyneux: Fable: The Journey demo was only 4 months old

The E3 demo for Fable: The Journey didn't look all that compelling, but it's okay -- Peter Molyneux admits it! The snake oil salesman of gaming has said that the demonstration was flawed, but it was only four months old. He PROMISES it will...


Peter Molyneux shits on Fable III to look humble again

We've talked about the Molyneux Cycle before, and I'm thrilled to report that it's back in full effect once more! With Fable: The Journey coming up, Molyneux has continued his tactic of downplaying the last overhyped game in order to furthe...
