What Fable 2 must overcome to avoid being Fable Version 2.0

Fable propelled the Xbox, making its home as a signature title that defined the system. While the game was imperfect, it presented a visceral experience where we could select a hero and follow their lives, including: conflict, romance, and the consequences of their actions. With the sequel being released in the coming months, forums everywhere are abuzz with the expectations of seasoned veterans and newcomers to the series. The question burning in the back of everyone's mind is this: can Fable 2 surpass the original beyond that of the normal RPG elements (storyline, weapons, etc.) or will it be branded Fable Version 2.0? At any rate, let's hope they remove the tropical mosquitoes that keep giving the hero elephantitis.

My only problem with the first one was that for a RPG, it was criminally short. And Fable 2 looks to have the same ****ing problem. Has Lionhead Studios ever heard of multidisc games? A RPG should always be 30+ hours long.

Sorry for the rant but I love Fable, I will pick up the sequel when it hits the PC, I just wish the games were longer.

Highwayman3414d ago

Show me where it has the same problem? Fable II isn't going to be short. It's truly amazing the type of off the hand ignorance that surfs these forums. The main questline is going to be 12-15 hours for those who complete who rush through the game. When you add all the side quests and everything else you're going to get about 200 hours worth of gameplay. No need to wish, it may even be longer than Oblivion and if I remeber correctly one could complete the main questline in Oblivion in about 12 hours if they rushed...

SixTwoTwo3414d ago

I thought I heard in an E3 interview the game only had 12 hours of total gameplay. Thanks for the clarification.

Highwayman3414d ago

It's no problem. But yeah, Fable II will be really long depending on how you want to play it.

PikkonX3414d ago (Edited 3414d ago )

My problem with the first one is that it was nothing like the "Project Ego" that Molyneux went on and on about. If you take the game for what it is, it's great and one of my favorite Xbox games, but it still falls far short of what was promised. I haven't paid any attention to Fable 2 at all so I can avoid any disappointment (all I know is that it has a dog). I'll just pick it up on day one with no expectations other than a great game.

Highwayman3414d ago

Fable II is going to be a lot more like Project Ego. The problem thwy had with it then was the limitations of the hardware in the Xbox. But now with the 360 they were able to do alot of those things they had planned for the first one.

GameOn3414d ago

Theres gonna be so many side-quests. I mean peter said that every single house in the game could be bought And every house you buy comes with it own quest. That's alot of quests and its only for the houses think of all the other quests.

I doubt any one person will complete or even find every side-quest in fable 2.

Fable 2 as we've already scene and heard, will be an incredible title taking us forward into the gaming future. I especially love the pop in and out coop.

Dont talk out your Ass

There are Better looking games on the PS2
The environments are BLAND
And The Character Models are Terrible
This Game is Years behind Uncharted let alone game's like MGS4 or Resistance 2 or killzone
And if this is what you got to look forward too along with Gears 2 and Poo Human
Then Its a very Bleak time indeed

Edit @ Dandyhighwayman

If you care about Gameplay
What have you got an Xbox for
You aint had no Game's to play this year !!!!
AHAHAHHAHA
Stupid Bot

Highwayman3414d ago (Edited 3414d ago )

Ahh, yes the arrogance of a sony fan. All you guys care about is graphics. There are people who, like myself, care more about gameplay. Fable II has very nice graphics and you do realize that Lionhead isn't going for that "realistic" BS. This is their own style, they're not attempting to be like everyone else.
So Fable II will suck because it's graphics aren't the best looking? lol...That's weak.

EDIT: Mr. PS3, Is that really the best rebuttle you can come up with? Really?
I've had plenty to play this year, but then I don't spend my whole life playing, like some of you probably do. And care to share with me what games you've had to play this year?
Oh, it's highwayman, not dandyhighwayman.

Once again, you can't state something as a fact, when in fact it's not a fact. It's more or less just your shortsighted opinion.

why_do_lemmings_cry3414d ago

Poor lemmings, this game will flop.
No doubt flop like a fish out of water.
So get used to your flops.
FLOP, FLOP, FLOP,FLOP, FLOP, FLOP,FLOP, FLOP, FLOP,FLOP, FLOP, FLOP,FLOP, FLOP, FLOP,FLOP, FLOP, FLOP,FLOP, FLOP, FLOP,FLOP, FLOP, FLOP,FLOP, FLOP, FLOP,FLOP, FLOP, FLOP,FLOP, FLOP, FLOP,FLOP, FLOP, FLOP,FLOP, FLOP, FLOP,FLOP, FLOP, FLOP,FLOP, FLOP, FLOP,FLOP, FLOP, FLOP...FLOPPERS!

Old Snake3414d ago

@ Xgamer you can't possible think that. For one the game probably won't deliver on half it's promises. And two there really isn't much that is innovative in this game. Peter Molonoxues or however you spell his fuking has yet to make a game that was as good as he promised it would be

the 1st 5 hours of the game you spend walking around doing nothing fun but talking to brainless people and also you get old fast.

6/10 game.

another shamesoft exclusive that will flop just like lolost oddysey and too human.

Highwayman3414d ago (Edited 3414d ago )

Hmm....That's what you do in every RPG. Esp. TES series, yet everyone loves those games! Your comment is nothing more than shortsighted. It's apparent that you don't play RPGs.

EDIT: I don't play JRPGs, I find them rather boring. I prefer to be in control of my character the entire time and I hate long cutscenes.

Nut job?!? lol..

"Poor mans RPG" Care to elaborate on that? How is it a "poor mans RPG"?
Wow ignorance really runs deep in the open zone.

fafoon3414d ago

You already admitted that this aint a looker in the Graphics Dept
And you keep bangin on about Gameplay ?
Well how do you think gameplay wise this compairs with FF7 let alone FF13

Get outa here you Nut Job

This Game is a poor mans RPG
That why its Exclusive to the Xbox
It just dont make the grade for a PS3 RPG

madjedi3413d ago (Edited 3413d ago )

@highwayman
You don't like jrpgs, enough said, opinion void on rpg games

Zerodin3414d ago (Edited 3414d ago )

Lair, Haze, Heavenly Sword. <=Three big flops for the Flopstation 3.

That being said, I don't trust the Fable 2 dev to deliver.

why_do_lemmings_cry3414d ago

Heavenly Sword was not a flop.
Haze was never hyped.
Poor lemming, the 360 has more flops than the PS3.

Fable 2 will be a flop.

eagle213414d ago

How about?

Blue Dragon, Shadowrun (LMAO), Two Worlds, Too Human <======= 4 Flops on 360.

I remember when the Shadowrun developer said Halo 3 and Shadowrun was going to kill PS3. He might be working at Burger king now..lol
