When Fable III is released later this month, it’ll ship sans any of the promised Kinect compatibility. By the sounds of it, that’s a good thing.

Some of the binned mini-games have been detailed, and they sound pretty horrible.

Kotaku recently went to a Fable 3 media event in New Yor, and learned there that one of the intended Kinect-integrated mini-games was to involve throwing tomatoes at people, and another was centred around building statues. Neither of them sound like the revolutionary idea that Fable sets out to achieve.

“We could have done some trivial, gimmicky thing for Fable, some side, gimmicky thing, but I don’t think it’s the right thing,” Molyneux said in an interview with vg247 at Gamescom. “If we’re going to do something with Kinect on Fable it should be brilliant. It should be as good as it can be.

Throwing tomatoes? Hardly sounds brilliant to me. thankfully, the game – without gimmicky Kinect integration – looks pretty darned fantastic. if you haven’t seen the launch trailer, do so now!

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
