For those of us who remember the one-man hype machine that was Peter Molyneux before the release of the first Fable game, we can be excused for not exactly taking the leader of Lionhead Studios at his word. However, Peter is trying to change all that by being incredibly candid about his new game, Fable 2. So candid in fact, that he's been getting in trouble from Microsoft and their PR company for admitting to the game's flaws before it's on store shelves.
"I'm just a developer. And when you sit down opposite people, people like yourself, and they look you in the eyes and they say 'are you happy with absolutely everything in Fable 2?', I can't hand on heart say that we have got a state of the art animation system," Molyneux told VideoGamer.com. "The main thing here is, if I sit in front of a game and pretend that everything is absolutely perfect and nothing is wrong then you're not going to be able to trust me. The trust that people had in me was perhaps betrayed a little bit with Fable 1 because people felt that I over hyped the game. It really was important to me to actually try and be honest..." Is this a new, brutally honest Molyneux? We won't know until we get our hands on Fable 2 when it hits store shelves this October 21st.
