OXM: Fable 2 Feature - The first few hours of broken down

It all starts with a lump of bird poo. Seriously. All this time, energy, effort and sweat has gone into making Fable II and it starts off with a lump of bird poo.

This is how the opening cinematic ends, after the camera has swooped past castles, villagers, through Bowerstone and sets the stage for one of the biggest sequels this year. A bird flies overhead and squeezes out an aerial bomb that lands square between the eyes of your character. And thus, Fable II begins.

"There are still some weird kinks and flaws that need to be ironed out, most notably a framerate that would choke and stutter regardless of what's happening onscreen."

Too bad the game went gold.

This article could off been written before that though. I like how even if the complete article praised the game bar one line you'd quote that.

Another "glass half empty" kind of guy huh?

Wait for reviews if your concerned.

This article was based off the media demo that was done last month. The game went gold a couple days ago.

Have you ever heard of something called a patch or a update...?

Yes, It can be done.

@Rick Astley

Why you did not put the rest of the quote...

"There are still some weird kinks and flaws that need to be ironed out, most notably a framerate that would choke and stutter regardless of what's happening onscreen. It would also be extremely impressive if Lionhead could keep the tight pace and diversity of the opening hours running throughout the entire running time of Fable II. Still, if they pull it off, this will easily be one of the best games of 2008.

You are quite a troll, always spaming X360 threads. As for this article, I doubt he would have access to the final version (it just went gold a couple of days ago), so must of been beta.

I was looking forward to this game, and it's already gone gold. Oops.

OOPS... did you even read the article? I think not.

That made me laugh. Cheers... =)

That did not sound like a very positive preview. Too Human had more positive press than this leading up to release, and this is OXM at that. My eager expectations are now replaced with cautious optimism. I'm not sure who has the stronger line-up at this point. My only assured purchases are GeOW2, WipeoutHD, Fallout 3, Resistance 2 and LBP. Come to think of it, those are mostly PS3 games. That answers my question then.

Were we reading the same article? How was that bad?

Eh. Iuno.
