Is this game like out for X-box? I heard about it and thought it sounded like something I wanted to pick up, but like, I can't find it at any of my local stores. So like, whats the deal with this game, I heard good and bad things about the first one, mostly bad from people on this forum.

One billion b-balls dribbling simultaneously throughout the galaxy. One trillion b-balls being slam dunked through a hoop throughout the galaxy. I can feel every single b-ball that has ever existed at my fingertips. I can feel their collective knowledge channeling through my viens. Every jumpshot, every rebound and three-pointer, every layup, dunk, and free throw. I am there.

I know, I meant the first time they released it.

I don't know Pixies, I lent out my copy of Lego Star Wars and was handed Fable in return. I maybe made it through a level or two but couldn't really get into it. So I guess my view wouldn't be accurate because I didn't really give it the time. But the times I was playing it I thought it was pretty bleh.

 

It reminded me of the second LOTR game with some RPG elements in it.

Well, just after playing Lego Starwars, all other games are less fun in comparison.

I went out to buy it a few weeks ago and couldn't find it, but now I see that it is in a "platinum" box, and I didn't know that before.

From what I've heard, it's not as open ended as they claimed it to be.

Well only a little bit. [/sarcasm]

No, the lost chapters is exclusively for PC as it was originally meant to. The lost chapters is Fable but with 25% bigger i hear. Rumor is is that it doesn't make the game much better really. I hear mixed reviews. Some say its great, some say soso. Only way to tell though is if you give it a try! :-

I thought Fable was decent - they had a decent amount of customization, but it isn't exactly as open-ended as the Black Isle devotees would like. The quests were kind of blah, and the storyline wasn't too hot. For what it's worth the gameplay was fun.

 

I know a pretty standard complaint about Fable is that it is too short. One of the reasons it seems so short is as you level up your character in skills, etc., you can barely max out one or two things. If you attempt a well-balanced character, you truly won't excel at anything.

 

There were some cool weapons and other inventory type things to buy and sell. It's just hard to live up to something that's been in development so long.

Holy snap DD what are you doing posting outside of the music thread?

 

I thought the whole 'run throught the village and talk to people' thing was especially lacking compared to some of the other games at the time.

Wrong, Fable TLC has been released for XBOX, it's a platinum box so it's not a fullprice game.

Well slap my ass and call me suzie! Your right! :)

 

BTW, next time when you tell someone they are wrong, It would be helpful to leave a link, as positive evidence.  :)

Yea sure, I can tell that copy is real from over in michigan because i have psychic powers. Thanks! (w00t)

No problem, happy to be of service in training your budding psychic abilities.

Fable was pretty much complete crap.

  • Not one ounce of originality
  • Flat and uninteresting main character
  • Generic story
  • All quests are the same (escort character X to point Y sound familiar?)
  • No roleplaying at all
  • The only real game element, the combat, was boring and definently not challenging in any way. Just button mashing.

Its actually much more of a simulation(or bad parody) of an RPG. It tries to hide itself using a lot of fancy peripherals like being able to change hairstyles or having townspeople whisper you chosen nickname when you pass them. Boring and uninteresting.

 

DO NOT BUY FABLE!

Agreed with Kaftan. It's not all bad, but... well, lets see.

 

Plot: It's about as good as Doom's.

 

Character: Bad. There is nothing redeeming about anything here.

 

Quests / Missions: Go kill a gigantic bee with its bee-spawn in a 20th-century-style park, collecting shiny orbs of power and having random people appraise you for your beeslaughter.

 

Customisation: Mostly on trivial things like hairstyle. You don't feel a real sense of making your own character, but rather taking some mannequin and throwing on random things on it just for a short-lived giggle.

 

Actually, Kaftan is generally right. The combat is really crap, too. Think Jade Empire dumbed down, with an extra dash of crap. (For the combat, I mean.)
