Videogameszone published a new dev diary for Fable 3 which shows first in game footage of the upcoming game.
Holy eff. Did I just see that girl reverse the guy, Jump in the Air and Pierce him in the Torso with blood Splattering all over the place ?? haha I never knew there was that kind of action in the Fable series. I only played the 2nd one a few hours at my friend's house and even though I liked what I played I never got to really get into the game. But after watching this I can say that Fable 3 is on my radar.

I can tell I won't like it, so I'll steer clear because I didn't like Fable 2.
MEH looks the same as the second one. Which wasn't all that good
I like the darker, gritty atmosphere. and that the characters aren't as cartoony. I wonder if it'll still end up being a linear POS like the rest of the Fable games. If not...A first week buy.
but i did get a kick out of the first one and this one looks pretty good imo might jus look into another 360 when we get teh cash for this reach n crackdown2
Stopped playing part 2 after a few hours. But I'll wait for more media.
I'm big Fable fan, both games were great but when I see in the interviews the features they mention and describe, judging by past experiences with the series, it'll be UP to half as cool. Holding hands - ICO style. Interactions - small step ahead comparing to F2. Combat - few basic moves, maybe some counters + skills. I was really excited for first Fable, it was great but far from what was promised. Second, Peter promised less, sitll didn't live up to it. Both Fables didn't fulfill what was hyped for the first game. Third one won't make it happen either.
The second wasnt nearly as good as the first. Why is it developers always use 'darker, edgier' as though its some sort of magic wand that will make a game better....sigh. I can hardly tell how this will turn out from early shots, but im not exactly blown away. Fable 2 looked muddy and fuzzy for me, and ran sluggishly. Maybe these technical problems also impaired my enjoyment of the game. Or maybe it was that it felt like the game really held your hand firmly throughout. Or maybe it was the predictable, contrived plot and disappointing ending, or the shallow RPG elements, or the simple overhyping....you get the idea. If Molyneux for once can transfer half his talk into actual gameplay and features, then this would be be epic. Theres enough to fix. Mostly niggles though and nothing too serious. I reserve judgement til i play this. Enough potential to look forward to with this however
Your way to limited in fable. Also anyone thats says the ending to mumber to was good is lying.
Look's so much better! Can't wait!
As I did play Fable 2 and liked it but a little too short. I wanted them to expand the world and I so love the music towards the end of this video....just bliss. meng, I so behind already with the 360 library this year, it's ridonculous.
Fable 3 a REAL WRPG unlike Mass Effect 3 which is a shooter with RPG elements. This is a real RPG not just RPG elements. Did like Fable 2 and had just completed it before my last 360 died.
looks exactly like fable 2. **edit** just because i say it looks like fable 2 doesn't mean its a bad thing. but with all those disagrees that i'm going to get.. sum peeps are gonna be B*tt hurt
It does have Fable 2's aesthetics but man does it look so much more darker and grittier. Just look at how visceral the combat looks.
Yeah, it does look like Fable 2 with some new scripted attacks being shown. Honestly, I'm not falling for it a third time. I'm out. Extreme morphs? This is Peter's big change? The ability to morph into a good or evil version of yourself with wings? Don't most hack and slash games have this mode (Dante's Infero and Darksiders just to name two that allow you to 'morph', though in Dante's Inferno is more of a glowing effect)? And why the heck would they need to 'scrap the whole system' just for a simple morph? Weapons that change as you use them? Again, nothing big. Reach out and touch other NPCs? Who gives a rats arse?
"just because i say it looks like fable 2 doesn't mean its a bad thing. but with all those disagrees that i'm going to get.. sum peeps are gonna be B*tt hurt " couldn't it be that some people don't think the same as you?
"The graphics have been boosted quite a bit, as well. While the last game had smallish, cramped dungeons, Fable III's are more expansive. The general world is pretty nice and lush, as well. It's obvious at a glance that this sequel looks much better than Fable II." - from Destructoid. Sorry to disappoint your PS3 fanboy sentiments.
"The look of the game has been beefed up immensely, with the character animation smoother and a much darker tone of colours used than before. Worth a note was the complete lack of on screen bars and menus, freeing up the screen for action. The aim is to use the environment to show how you are doing, so if you are getting a kicking the screen will blur or even bleed." - Wonderwallweb Butt hurting some.
I don't own either console. Calling people PS3 fanboys for not liking a 360 exclusive makes you look like the fanboy. I played Fable 1 on my PC, and beat Fable 2 at my friends house on his 360. I was Very disapointed with fable 2, and therefore won't be playing fable 3 unless it has some amazing reviews. Fable 2 had good reviews and it sucked IMO (especially because of spell charging and the lack of any armor, not to mention the most anti-climatic ending ever)
I wouldn't say exactly, but yes there's not a massive leap But don't forget, the game is still in development, I fully expect more visual updates to come!
fan, so this is a must buy provided it's at least as good as the first two. They're not my fav Action/RPG's but they're very well made IMO. This is totally on my radar. I'm kinda happy that this is coming out so soon compared to Fable 2, but I hope that doesn't mean quality will suffer. Let's see what comes of this. :)
The fact they are not using a new engine isn't always a bad thing it just means they can make it a LOT quicker. Also it's like they say if it's not broke..
I would assume you've never played Fable 2, because this game looks WAY better, as a matter of fact, it looks as good as Trine if not better, even Folklore.
It might look similar to 2 but the engine looks incredibly tight with much better performance. Big :tup: from me.
Man I cant stand when I go to the link and cannot see the video because it will not play. Well I found another one if your in the same situation as me and this one is 5 minutes instead of 1 minute. http://www.actiontrip.com/r...
Thanks milkman, couldn't watch the video on the article site either.
Ty same here :) EDIT: ohh and i want to play it! seems fun fun !
Yeh it looks good, sure the graphics are the same but i liked them, gameplay looks improved, and the morphs are a great idea and heres another link http://extremegamingreviews...
WOW you can get angel wings that looks awesome
a friend and I beat Fable 2 literally just mashing X.
yeah me too, and we didnt even die a single time
Okay video looks nice I really like the idea of weapon morphing, it would be cool to create weapons by using them and sell them for extra money. The touch system also looked nice. But what I really want is: Coop online gets there own camera, none of this share the camera and have to stay close crap, that killed me. More story, more actual cutscenes with cinematography, I want quests to feel important. by having more story attached to them. Decorating, was kind of a waste in fable 2, it was basically a few levels of upgrades, there needs to be more unique items to decorate with, and it would be nice if I can chose the layout of the furniture. And if I'm king I'd also like to choose layout elements to my castle/town Lionhead is a very experienced Sims creator they should add some sim elements. If they bring back the jobs they should make them more interesting, more complex to play. Longer main quest, there was in my opinion, too much optional side quests relative to the main quest in fable 2. They should also add depth to relationships, or create special relationship characters, in Dragon Age or mass effect ,you may be limited to a few relationships, but they were deep, meaningful, and had interesting scenes/missions attached to them. relationships in Fable 2, despite being allowed to marry anyone seemed pointless, but you only repeat a few gestures dump a few gifts and pop the question, and there was nothing terribly unique about the different npcs. All in all i'm sure I'll love it, I just hope they address of the few above issues.
The 360 is on fire this year :) I feel blessed being able to partake in all the goodness.
Blessed? Relax it's just a console, not the second coming of Jesus.
XB2 have always been on fire: http://www.joystiq.com/2008...
Bots fangirls are really going to appreciate that since they've never had girlfriends. This game SCREAMS mediocrity lol. Looks like Neverwinter Nights.
Because this game is going to be great, lauded by fans and critics alike and your little ignorant, immature, spiteful and frankly detrimental (towards gaming that is) isn't going to change the critical acclaim of this game, however it is this precise ideology that is keeping gamers from enjoying a wider library of games by the principle monkey see, monkey do.
Don't worry Trebius, you can have, um, shall we say, alternate lifestyles in Fable if you choose to do so. This way you can feel included too.
It's looking very good. It looks way better than Fable 2. Anyone that says it looks like F2 is blind out of one eye and can't see out of the other. While not perfect the series have been better that Final Fantasy since debuting in 2004. I have never been a rpg guy and in fact Chrono Trigger was the last one that I finished but this series has been very good. Will buy on day 1!!
all Xbox 360 GOTY 2010 ps3 has no games this years
isn't it supposed to look better than fable 2???
As long as it looks better than WKC I reckon.
I would hope it looks better than a game that was originally released over a year ago. Oh wait..you were trying to be clever?
but not better than Demon's Soul's I'm sure =)
Um..it clearly looks better than Demon's Souls. Then again, Demon's Souls is good because of its gameplay, not its graphics. Its graphics are pretty atmospheric, but technically they aren't that great.
LOL! Really? Demon Soul's graphics are horrid compared to Fable 2. LOL! Another fail bear.
seems like all the other fables with ++++++ AND that is not a bad thing lol i mean its a series rofl CANT WAIT......driving on the left side of the road.....EWWWW
Then I guess we can say nothing on the PS3 this year is special whatsoever. Not MAG, not WKC, not Heavy Rain. Maybe you'll get one AAA when God of War 3 comes out. My point is, if you are going to act like Fable 2 sucked because it got an 89 on metacritic then you have to say the same thing about Heavy Rain because it also has an 89 on metacritic. But get real, since when was an 89 a bad score? That is a very good score.
Hey droids... guess what? 360 has games :)
Yep, lot's of games. More games than any other console in fact. (814 for the Xbox360 vs 485 for the PS3). http://www.metacritic.com/g... This year the 360 has an especially awesome lineup. Fable 3, Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell Conviction, Metro 2033, Crackdown 2, Alan Wake, Halo Reach and whatever else gets announced. Amazing.
I'm really excited about this :)
I HATE MY XBOX 360 NOW. WTF with these stupid washed out exclusives. Developer need to take advantage of hardware not release these lower than half sequels. I hope they bring more with this game.Other wise I'm selling my xbox 360 to some 13 year old kid so he can join the annoying gamer clan on the worse online gaming community there is.
That looked...Awesome. I need to get Fable 2. Fable 3 is gonna be sooo sick!! 0_0
Argh!!!!! LOOKS INCREDIBLE Fable II is one of my favourite games this gen, I've played through it a ridiculous amount of times, and Fable III is looking fantastic Day 1 no doubt, who's with me!? :D
this is a awesome game!
Just hope they can pull of what they are promising this time.
In order to enjoy it, just accept Fable for what it is, a decent RPG with a small dash of Monty Python humor. Everything else are extras. But the whole jump and stab thing reminded me of Jade Empire. Looked a bit like the Achilles move from Troy to me. But graphics wise, looks just like Fable2 with some polish. Which is acceptable to me, it ain't a bad thing. You just have to be pleased with Fable's art direction, which suits it just fine and is in sync with how the first game looked, just a bit better.
i played Fable2 on my friends 360, i really like the friendly bright environments, reminds me of Flower on PS3 the way everything is so bright and the characters are drawn friendly I enjoyed Fable 2 even if it was short and the end boss fight was meh
I can't wait! Fable II was one of the greatest games of 2008, and that sure is saying something with the likes of GTA IV, Gears 2, LittleBigPlanet, and Fallout 3. Fable III is bound to be one of the greatest games of 2010! Although, Mass Effect 2 may be nearly impossible to beat.
I think Fable 3 looks pretty cool. I like the game play innovations that they were discussing in the video. I have never played a Fable game. But I am a pure gamer since I pretty much like all types of games irregardless of the genre. I think I may have to add Fable 3 to the list of Xbox 360 exclusives that I am interested in.
Why do people want such a New games basically for Fable III? It's NOT supposed to change it's not like a Final Fantasy game where it's meant to change something thinks it's actually a Part 3 the story is continued! If they changed a lot of stuff it would be retarded because that's not how a Sequel to a game should be...They made the graphics look A LOT better as you can see and added a few things...People should be playing it for the story not the Minor things you kids wanna complain about you guys loo for something to complain about and not talk about the good things. I'm not a fan of the WRPG games ( even though it not really a WRPG since there from Europe =p ) I like JRPG the most but this looks really good and I liked Fable II A LOT. The Story is amazing and the ending really was great on the 2nd one since it wasn't the same " smashing X to the hardest boss in the games ".
so your basically saying you wont everything to stay the EXACT same and only the story to change?
Lionhead and especially Molneaux speak too damn much. Every little change they make to their game they label as innovative and ground-breaking when really it's just a step forward, which is what we expect in a sequel. The best thing I saw in that video was the clothing on the characters. YOU CAN HAVE STRIPED STOCKINGS!!!!
is fable 1 any good? I've been thinking about ordering it.
