Fable: The Journey Is Not On Rails, According To Molyneux

When Microsoft was unveiling its Kinect line-up, most people assumed that the motion controlled RPG spin-off Fable: The Journey was going to be an on-rails affair, like Dead Space: Extraction. Whoops! Turns out that anyone who thought that is wrong, although series creator Peter Molyneux understands the confusion.

I made a horrendous mistake on the press briefing demo by taking out the navigation, allowing players to move. ... I'll just state on record now that Fable: The Journey is definitely not on rails.

Now, the game probably still won't be as wide open as previous Fable games, but knowing that you're not locked down to a specific path, that there will be some form of exploration, will probably be some comfort to Fable fans. Assuming they believe him, of course. Still, I wouldn't expect to get gay-married and to adopt a couple of rug-rats in this one - first person making out using Kinect would probably be kind of gross anyway. First person versions of a lot stuff you can do in Fable games would probably be kind of gross, so it's good they're sticking to jazz hands and spear throwing.

I love the Fable series, but I am not even remotely interested in this schlock. It looks ridiculous, repetitive, and uninteresting.

I love Fable, but I am in the same boat. I am not investing in expensive hardware for one game, to start with. Add to that the fact that this looks like a limited movement game (multiple rails), and I am out. I like that they tried, but I will spend that money on the new Arkham and Bioshock games instead. Or pit it towards a Wii U.

Don't ever believe anything that comes out of Molyneux's mouth. LIES I TELL YA!!

Unfortunatelly, Molyneux if famous for overhyping and can serve as a poster-boy for unused potential. I'll wait for a demo, but I'm not expecting much. Could very well end up picking it though, cause in spite all, I do love the Fable series with a masochistic sobtext.
