Something more like Populous the beginning: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uW35sV5OSgU

It's a "God game". Basically you're the god and those people are your followers or minions ;-P

You can manipulate the environment to help your people or destroy an opposing tribe (At least that was what happened in Populous)
So for example build a lava flow into an other tribes village or create a volcano in the middle of it.

Looks amazing. It's funny how people don't know what Populous is. They probably think Peter Molynuex's first game was Fable. I didn't even realize this was a console game. Pretty wild quality for an XBLA game.

If only EA hadn't purchased Bullfrog, we would still be receiving classics like Populous, Dungeon Keeper, Theme Hospital and Syndicate...

Because games are only good if they come on a disc. Not many people know that most of the fun is created by the physical motion of the disc spinning.

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Right. I think programmable shaders were adopted fairly early on consoles (xbox360/ps3) (3 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Well, only recently they have been. I think this is the first gen I've seen where PC's are playing catch up. Not through hardware power, but through development cycles (3 Days ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Yeah I think innovations on the console side are taken up more quickly by PC than vice versa because consoles are really lead platform for everything (3 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (4 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think we could be seeing a dramatic shift in PC hardware where it'll be essential to own both an SSD and a next gen card with the api's to use them. That also would probably require new motherboards (4 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (4 Days ago)
