Fable III's epic cast takes video games to a new level

Guardian: "Ben Kingsley, Michael Fassbender, Zoë Wanamaker, Bernard Hill, Simon Pegg, John Cleese and Stephen Fry are all on the cast list and the 20-track original score is performed by a national symphony orchestra. It sounds like the cinematic event of the year, yet this epic tale will never be seen on stage or screen. Instead, the ensemble cast of more than 80 actors and voice talents makes up the characters of Fable III – one of the most eagerly awaited video games of the year in an industry that is gradually acquiring some cachet among the stars."

dont have an xbox but stephen fry is awesome

You know, if there's one thing I've learnt from being in the Army, it's never ignore a pooh-pooh. I knew a Major, who got pooh-poohed, made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cos it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs. In the end, we had to disband the regiment. Morale totally destroyed... by pooh-pooh!

You know this is for PC as well right? Either way I can't wait for this game, picking it up tomorrow and going to be playing all day. Judging by the streams I've watched Fable 3 is much more polished and runs very smooth with short load times and some improvements to the combat.

its for pc? my interest in this game has been raised

T9X692889d ago

Yea but I think the PC release date was pushed back until sometime next year though.

Apocwhen2889d ago

Cool, I didn't know it was coming to PC either.
I assumed it wouldn't be at all seeing as they never released Fable 2 for PC at all.

ReservoirDog3162889d ago

You know, except for one ad before Zero Puncuation, I haven't seen one video of this game. Almost feel like I'm missing out honestly. Hmm. But I'm broke anyways so oh well.

STEPHEN FRY
BEN F'ing KINGSLEY!
JOHN F'ing CLEESE!
SIMON PEGG!

No Rpg comes close in sheer talent count.

Cyrus3652889d ago

I'm curious what these voice actors get paid for video game work, obviously it's not the same coin as voice over work for say a cartoon...

Chuk52889d ago

Some people on n4g are straight up delusional.

MorganX2889d ago

Enslaved, Uncharted 2, all have great voice acting. Ben Kinglsey is a great actor, but not so much in Americas. It's subjective.

Stephen Fry, has a great narration voice. Drove me nuts in LBP, that's one of the reasons I didn't like it. Made it seem like Sesame Street listening to him. But no denying he has the voice for it.

Tony P2889d ago

I don't think half the people disagreeing know who the actors are (though they should).

It's N4G. Getting excited about a game that's not going to the other console is reason enough to get disagrees.

TroyAndAbed2889d ago

Stephen Fry narrates Little Big Planet. I think that's why some people are disagreeing.

This is a phenomenal cast though. All of them are great actors! Good work, Lion Head!

TroyAndAbed2889d ago

Oh, COME ON!!!

Why the disagrees?!?

NecrumSlavery2889d ago

I'd like to see David Attenborough voice in a game. Planet Earth and Life are outstanding.

a great cast doesn't make a game to be better

lowcarb2889d ago

It helps just like great graphics help according to most people on this site.

TroyAndAbed2889d ago

Good graphics do help though. Uncharted 2 stands on its own without the graphics. However, the graphics were PHENOMENAL! They helped create set pieces unseen in games these days.

Chuk52889d ago

BS. Without it's great graphics, UC2 is a great game, not a masterpiece.

Chuk52889d ago

That's a stupid thing to say. Good v.o=more believable characters=more engaging story= better game.

Chucky20032889d ago (Edited 2889d ago )

the story isn't made by these actors but by the ones who work on the game,so if the story sucks even great actors can't do anything to make it better,besides there are so many videogame actors that are doing their job really good,i don't like bringing movie actors to games,because this is just for advertising,besides the story of the game isn't the most original one,the hero is making a revolution to take down his brother,another thing i do have the game and i didn't even know these were the actors that are voicing some of the characters if i didn't read this

Tony P2889d ago

Are you kidding? They aren't just names.

Some of those guys have done great vo work for feature animations AND video games.

asyouburn2889d ago

im sure the developers of two worlds thought the same way, look how that turned out

Si-Fly2889d ago

Can't wait for this game, got my "dispatch" email from Game today, fingers crossed Royal Mail deliver by Tuesday ...

Si-Fly2889d ago

What's there to disagree with lol! From the fable forums it seems like everyone else who preordered the LE has a dispatch email too ...
