OXM Online: Fable 2 Preview - It's Hero Time

Peter interrupts, stopping the game, speaking to Lionhead producer Will Braham: "Can we have a smooth transition from the first camera, back around the head rather than a cut?" He restarts the game.

Actually the Edler Scrolls franchise pre-dates the Fable Franchise. Also, clearly, Oblivion itself came out before Fable 2. However, these games have little in common other then they are RPGs set in a fantasy land (like lots of other RPGs). The game styles are completely different.

Fable was awesome (if short) so I believe Fable 2 will be awesome as well.
