    Is anyone interested in fable 2? It comes out a week before fallout 3 and Im tempted to buy it.


    While fable 1 had some really bad flaws, such as a easily abused magic system(the spell multistrike maxed out gives you 6 times your usually damage, and barely costs any magic, slow down time spell makes it so you can easily avoid enemies attacks, theres lots of other that are abusable) and terrible, terrible voices(the characters talked like "eh guvnor me jimeney crickett" a really, really heavy british accent)

    I think they have fixed the problems from the first one.Im looking forward to fable 2

    anyone else?

    Until it comes out on the PC (not for a long time), I could care less.

    Not interested. I can tell you why in one word: Molyneux
    And that is just one interview's worth of insanity and ego.

    Ill only get it for PC and for mods to come. I do wonder who in Fable 2 can trump the last villain Jack Of Blades. As they say you do not know jack about Jack and they were right.

    I never saw that interview, and I strongly disagree with just about everything he said.Oblivions combat was excellent, and if he was referring to jrpgs as shit, I agree, but if he was referring to american/european rpgs, then I strongly disagree.And games too difficult? thats insane.Games are too easy these days, actually.

    Even though molyneux said all that crap, I have looked into fable 2 and it looks interesting.Besides, that interview is really old.They got rid of the permanent disfigurement, I heard.I think you reload from a checkpoint or something, since they got alot of negative reponse over the scar issue.

    I'm just hoping the combat isnt as easy as it sounds.If it is, I want a harder difficulty option.

    Strange to think that this guy once made Populous and Powermonger.

    I guess those days are way behind him now.

    Peter Molyneux sounds like Grandpa Simpson.

    All he needs to do is start screaming DEATH! at everything and he'll have transitioned from loosebrained nonsense to utter senility.

    In the interest of Mister Molyneux, he meant that the extent to which it fulfilled his vision was 9/10.

    Come on, guys, leave the dude alone! He's like your crazy uncle who fought in 'Nam and doesn't know what's going on anymore.

    I love Fable. That game is a shitton of fun, I still reinstall every once in a while. It's just fun nonsense. Sure, there's stuff I'd like to be different, but there's some really fun stuff in there.

    Fable 1 sucked donkey ass. Hardcore. I remember all the promises Molyneux made before the game came out (day night cycles that meant something, dragons, other NPC's who act as heroes in the land, dragons, choice and consequence, etc, etc) and when the game came out, it was about 20% of what he claimed it would be.

    "Best RPG ever," is what he said, I think.

    Molyneux hasn't released a decent game in 15 years, and I doubt Fable II will be change this.

    By the way, the dog dies in Fable II.

    I don't see how not living up to hype makes something shitty. I can understand that hype flavors your perception of any product, but to have a complete inability to judge something based on its own merit renders any comments about it you make meaningless.

    I love that game. It's goofy looking, it has the same art style from B&W; it has some depth in social interaction despite not having any real dialog options; combat is fun if janky.

    Look, this is subjective stuff here, but don't go saying that it's a bad game because some dude said it was going to be better than it was.

    I probably will get it, but I hope they get a Demo on Xbox live so I can see for it myself since I could not go to PAX to try it out. My friend who did went to PAX said he enjoyed it.

    Oblivion was made shittier by the broken promises of Bethesda, same as Fable.

    Fable was advertised as Product A, but it was delivered as Product B (which sucked).

    We're all entitled to opinions, and mine is that Fable sucks donkey ass.

    I'm just curious. Have you even played Fable: The Lost Chapters? I've played the orginal and TLC. I liked the game even more with the extra add-ons on TLC. Eventhough I still beat the game in 25 hrs.

    I played, and completed, the original Fable on Xbox in under 10 hours. I had some evil dude that had horns and killed plants by standing near them, and then at the end of the game, since i chose to save my sister (or whatever the lame "good" vs. "bad" choice was) I was a hero again.

    A hero with demon horns who killed plants by standing near them.

    Woot Mr. Molyneux. You rule.

    Will buy this, just for the sheer joy of vomiting, and the whole co op deal. My 360 pretty much collects dust on the shelf.

    Peter promises a lot of things, most of all features that in most instances, will never actually appear in the game at all.

    I predict a semi amusing action adventure romp. You can get std's while sleeping with overweight women and defecating the innocence of the townskeepers by proclaiming your immense masculinity, naked except for the immense curled carpet-like chest hair,vomit and fecal stains surrounding union jack tighties created by plowing through the fat jowels and over tenderized bum muffins.

    Plus you can create orphans.

    No shitting on carpets though.

    I have learned it's best not to expect anything from a Lionhead game. Both Black and White games were pretty bad. Fable was a joke.

    I'm going to play Syndicate wars and weep a little.

    A friend of mine recently discovered Magic Carpet, any other people here who played that game?
