Who else is still hoping for a Black & White 3?

#1 Posted by Cloudleet (155 posts) -

Black & White is one of my favorite games of all time, with B&W2 following close. Would you like to see a B&W3? And what could be improved if they decided to make it?

Me. Looking at my copies of 1 & 2 on the shelf right now. They could improve it by making it feel more like Black and White 1 in the campaign but with more improvements like 2.

I have heard of the game, but never in depth. What is it about?

It's a God Sim. You play as god and build up your civilization. You tell your worshippers to construct buildings, you can assign them jobs (breeder, worker etc). You have a giant Animal as your pet that lives amoung your villagers who you can train to be good or evil. You can also be a good or evil god. Try the second one, it can still be considered a modern game I guess. The first one is quite old and very awkward by todays standard. It's made by Lionhead so if you like the fable style it might be good for you.

Best part is you can throw your minions off into the sunset...

@NekuSakuraba:  I'd say so, yeah. At it's heart it's a real time strategy game, but not really about military domination like most RTS. It's not as complex as a lot of PC RTS such as Total War either but it is unique and enjoyable. Like SeriouslyNow said, part of the fun is just picking up a worshipper and just killing him, throwing fireballs down. Getting your animal to eat people, or poop on their houses. You can probbably get it cheap and it still looks great (because it's a PC game).

I would love to see a new one made.
 
Maybe after Fable 3?

I hope so, in fact they should have told Fable 3 to fuck off and make Black and White 3.

@NekuSakuraba: No way, I'm still kinda excited for F3.

Oh don't get me wrong, I love Fable and 3 looks awesome. I just meant that they could have waited.

Black and White is a game just begging for a Kinect based revival.  The Hand of God could actually be your own.

Lionhead seem pretty console focused right now, so I'm not sure they'll go back to doing strategy titles or god sims for a while, and even if they did they'd probably have to strip them down to work on a console (direct control of the creature?). 
 
Even so, I'd love a new Black and White. The originals are oft-overlooked gems.

I've been saying this since Kinect was announced.  Along with Viva Pinata, these are two games that would be perfectly suited to Kinect.  Controls wouldn't be forced and it wouldn't need any silly motion based minigames.

As long as they get more BW1 in it its on my list.
BW2 was fun but too simple in make a base and steamroll the opponent with your near invincible creature, or spend 5 hours per mission to impress the other villages.
BW1 had some cool stuff with the conjure food and water to win over souls!
