Why so curious? – 22 Cans’ catastrophe

Peter Molyneux is a video gaming genius. I don’t care if you disagree, you’re wrong – he is. Fable I & II were groundbreaking, as is B&W. His ideas, his enthusiasm, his passion, are all things to admire and aspire to.

Well, Peter, I go back to the game daily. You’ve won me over. I give in. Your game, your idea; I’m in. I just can’t play it. It’s killing me. I’m the cat, and curiosity is…


Say something goddammit!
