Upon hearing the news last week that Peter Molyneux and the whimsical wizards over at Lionhead Studios plan to show off Fable III at Microsoft’s X10 event this week, I’m guessing that quite a few Fable fans selected the “Jump for Joy” option from their personal action menus. If this describes your response, then Molyneux has some words of warning for you.
"There’s some – Wow – there’s some very, very big things happening in Fable. Bigger than you think, and it’s going to really going to upset people. I’m really scared. When I go out and tell people what it is, they’re going to get super pissed off. They really are. But it’s the right thing to do,” Molyneux recently told Game Reactor.
Seeing as gamers have come to expect Molyneux games to have their release dates pushed at least a few times, it would be hard to imagine that a Fable III delay would really "piss off" that many gamers. If the game were 100 percent Project Natal-powered, then that would definitely elicit some rather unpleasant feelings among players. This is probably the least likely scenario, seeing as I doubt Microsoft would pull a Tony Hawk Ride with one of their most precious franchises, but anything’s possible I guess. Fortunately, we only have to wait a few days before we know the devastating truth.
