[CVG]Lionhead hopes Fable 3 won't feel 'like just a half-done port'

PC gamers have had to wait a fair while for Fable III, which launched for Xbox 360 last October, but lead designer Josh Atkins has told RPS the studio never had any intention of releasing a rushed port as it wanted to treat the platform and its users with respect.



"Our hope is that people who pick up on PC think 'okay, this plays how I would expect it to play, it doesn't play like just a half-done port', which I think is the danger for PC games.

"Not to knock anyone else, but people tend to just rush games out onto the PC, they do the very quickest port they can and they try to do it as a financial model rather than let's try to make something that at least plays like it was designed for this platform, and respects what the platform does."

Uhm what? It won't feel like a port, if they make it for the PC, it's their decision what they wanna make, if they make a port, sure it's gonna feel like a port?

Why not make games for the PC and then scale them down for consoles? It'll be quicker and that way console slimeballs can have the half done ports.

Thread title worries me.

We "hope it doesn't feel like a port" translates in my BS-O-Meter to:

"It is a port, hopefully you can't feel it too much"

The simple fact that it was on a console to begin with is an insurmountable hurdle for some folks around these parts. Never mind if the game itself is actually good or some serious optimization went into the PC version.

I wish 'em the best though. Fable may not be my kind of game, but games being more accessible is never a bad thing. I'd hate to see them chased off from PC entirely because a vocal minority isn't happy with anything.

Honestly the fact that they only have the confidence to say hope takes exactly that away from me...

Is there anything wrong with ports?
I wouldn't mind a port as long as the devs put in some extra effort to make the game play like a true pc game.
like making the controls comfortable on a keyboard and mouse, UI change , and performance optimization.
