No Melee Combat In Fable The Journey

Blame Kinect

Dear, oh dear, oh dear. As if we weren't worried enough, Peter Molyneux has now confirmed you will be swinging no axes, swords or hammers in Fable The Journey, as Lionhead's upcoming action-adventurer does not feature melee combat. Why? Well, because according to Molyneux, we're "encoded" to expect certain reactions to our actions in games, and seeing as how Kinect cannot register recoil or the like - simulated in controller's by vibrations - he's opted to remove all guns and swords from the game.

Peter Molyneux really wants you to like Fable: The Journey. It's not on-the-rails, he insists; a better showing is on the cards at Gamescom, he promises; but it is ditching the series' jet-black humor, he concedes. But he appears typically confident in his studio's latest Albion offering, claiming it will "compel" potential buyers to pick up a Kinect sensor.

As if Lionhead didn't have it difficult enough convincing Fable fans that upcoming Kinect spin-off, The Journey, was a fully fledged Albion offering, they've now come out and admitted the team is ditching the series' famed humor in favor or a lighter, more family-friendly brand of comedy. Speaking at the Develop Conference, lead artist Tak Saito revealed the news and explained why the team opted to work on Unreal Engine 3 rather than Lionhead's in-house tech.

Peter Molyneux must be a bitch to wrangle for Microsoft's PR. Between shaming Fable 3 and dissing Kinect, the walking hype-machine has just revealed Lionhead has a "super secret project" incubating in-house. He wouldn't share any specific details, but here at Dealspwn we're hoping a Black and White revival is on the cards. Molyneux also had more to say on Lionhead's first Kinect offering, Fable The Journey, which includes "one of the most amazing things we've ever created".

I was initially very disappointed with Fable The Journey, until Peter Molyneux came out in defense of his studio's first Kinect title, refuting claims of it being simply an on-the-rails shooter. Yes, I'm falling for his hyperbole all over again! That said, even Molyneux himself has admitted their showing at Microsoft's E3 2011 conference wasn't great due to time concerns. However, he promises that come Gamescom in August, Lionhead will have a much better build to show off to the assembled press.
