a video which takes a look at the differences between the 2004 release of Fable with the updated Fable Anniversary which is due to hit the Xbox 360 from the 4th of February 2014.
Honestly all devs need to use Halo and fable anniversary as an example for how to make a remake/remaster.
Now...if they'd just make them for PC...
Agreed, Bob Dole got Fable Lost chapters on steam and it was terrible. So much stuttering and no controller support. Even if the kb/m controls were good the game woulda been worthy of the $3 but no.
TBH I think I prefer the bright and cheerful look of the original. Would have been nicer to have the graphics upgrade without making it look more like the dark ages.
Yep, unlike Capcom and their HD remaster of RE4 and code veronica....
I don't like the crushed blacks but overall this looks alright
I agree but I really wish they had made this for the Xbox one are well ill have to put my 360 back in the front room for a bit.
Is it strange for me to like the old one in this comparison? The face of the little kid just looks weird in Anniversary and the lighting seems quite 'boring'. I miss the vibrant colors here, which really set the atmosphere for me in Fable. This was also one of the reasons why I think I disliked 3 so much. Other than that it looks to be an amazing remake.
I agree. I prefer the brighter more innocent looking original. And yes, the anniversary looks great.
I agree. The brighter look of the original was great. Not too keen on the darker look either.
Ibactually think this video proves how good the original 1 was. Its not like comparing a game with better visuals, just 1 with different visuals. I too prefer the old 1.
Oh god what? The game looks terrible now, The bright world was perfect, it made everything that was evil or dark that much darker. And now the character models also look worse. Who approved this remake?
Yeah I'm not feeling the PC version, too dark. The character do look refined but the dull lighting on the PC version seem to crush allot of detail.
Is that screen-tearing? Face and bleakness is a shame, but I'd still buy this on the double for PC.
I could have sworn Fable come out on the 360. Plus they gave 3 away for free. I wish they could actual make the Fable they promised, instead we got a decent hack n slash.
Really liking the art style.
And that, is how remakes should be.
Fable Definitive Edition
The old game had a cartoony charm about it, however, while technically superior it looks grotesque somehow. Definitely should have put the effort into a new IP.
