A Lionhead spokesman has told videogaming247.com that a release date for the delayed DLC, Knothole Island is "very close" and that applies to the patch, too.
i can't wait
Can't wait, please hurry!!
got a question for ya fable fans... Are there a lot of good side quests? How long does it take to beat the game if you take your time with a lot of stuff?
I wasn't particularly impressed with Fable 2 as a whole. The story is all right, I suppose. You can tell a lot of thought went into it, but the plot forks and attempts at invoking emotion in the player aren't pulled off very well, feeling a bit silly and clumsy. The whole thing feels a bit pretentious and over-enthusiastic... like Peter Molyneux. The sidequests, which you asked about, aren't particularly good in my opinion - they're mostly repetitve and become boring quickly. Being as such, I stopped playing after running through a few, so I couldn't say how long they take. As regards the DLC: I hate that they've already added the achievements for it (150GS, I believe) onto the main game, creating a gap that Lionhead/MS obviously reckons will entice people into buying it. They've got to earn their keep, I know, but that kind of patronising bullsh*t doesn't sit well with me.
There aren't as many side quests as a traditional RPG. Instead, you have various "jobs" you can do: woodcutter, blacksmith, bartender. There are also Assassination missions, slaving missions (freeing and capturing), and the Crucible (a battle gauntlet). Finally, there are your standard "search missions," i.e. finding the silver keys to unlock chests. Tbh, each of these gets old pretty fast and can be done in a matter of 2 to 3 hours. The jobs, however, keep going after you beat the levels but it's just a means of getting money. Overall, the entire game (sidequests included) can be completed in 19-20 hours.
They are very close alright. To losing my respect if the dlc isn't worth a damn.
How about first releasing a patch where I can play the game without being forced to download to my already small 12gb harddrive. This is my 3rd copy of fable 2, and they all froze up 30 mins into game play without being downloaded to HD first.
No wonder why the attach rate of 360 exclusives sell unnaturally well. You people buy multiple copies of the same game lol. This just shows you that 360 owners jump on any exclusive because there isn't much around.
broken game wtf u talking about o well can't wait for the dlc
because it's the only game that freezes no matter whose copy I use. I know im not the only one. xbox.com was full of ppl with the same problem, that where i found my temporary solution.
I had a similar freezing problem following the boat battle at the end of the Spire and a game ending glitch after you kill the Dark master in the Monk quest. I had to restart the game three times before I found ways around it. So I get what you're saying. But I cannot wait until this DLC is released.
IS the game really that bad? Is this patch supposed to fix it?
Same here.I had two of my saved files freeze on me.My son,then the mage guy.Totally frozen.Couldn't talk to them,interact with them.Nothing.Fable 2 was a mess.Should of waited a few more months to polish it up before release.
I've installed it, tried different discs, different HDDs...nothing works. Looking forward to the patch as I haven't played the game due to Lionheads' stellar QA.
i hope it will be free. ive had fable 2 since release date and i havent even played it yet. when i finish fallout 3 ima tackle it. it looks fun
Damn f*cking right i recently bought 2100 points for this so it better be good
It's OK Lionhead, take your time. Get it right this time around. Please?
