For his musing, Tubatic discusses the multiple issues he had with Fable III, and how they represented the problems he saw in the gaming industry as a whole.
fable 3 was not dissapointing , molyneux was dissapointing period
while were at it, can someone please explain how dark void was bad? i liked the feeling you get from flight, and i want a gamers opinion on the game. i might rent it.
but it was a great year for the PS3, PC, and Wii.
I'm loving Fable III! I recently became King of Albion. It's fun with a friend too.
The most fun I've had with Fable 3 was playing co-op. I wouldn't call it broken, but I agree with a lot of this guy's gripes. It is far inferior to Fable 2. Sidebar: someone needed to proofread this article. So poorly written.
Well in a lot ways Fable III seems like more Fable II. Fable II will always seem better if you were a fan of Fable II. Because nothing beats playing Fable II for the first time. It was a new experience. While this feels like a retread with a new story and some new game play elements thrown in.
Really don't get why this game is used as a "good" example of 360 titles, when there are so many stories like this.
I'd say crackdown 2 over this...
Not a fan of Fable 3 (or Fable 2). But there were a lot of great games in 2010.
Agreed X 2. Fable on Xbox was just so awesome...Fable sequels have lost the magic. Thinking of original Xbox now that I think of it makes me want to play Knights of the Old Republic . . .
I've had kotr on my computer for so long but just haven't had the time to get around to playing it :(
I loved 2010 (mainly Nintendo). Don't lump Nintendo and Sony in MS disappointments...lol. :)
I'd agree were it not for Mass Effect 2, Reach, and Alan Wake. MS had a wonderful year. Would've been amazing were it not for my 1st red ring after 3 years :(. Crackdown 2 and Fable 3 were pretty disappointing, but at least C2 was fun. SC Conviction was trash.. N also had a great 2010. DKC Returns, Goldeneye, Epic Mickey (not great but not as bad as some make it out to be), Other M, SMBG2 and many more. Lets not forget that Epic E3 outing...killed the other two. As for Sony....They could have stopped with GoW3. So much awesome in one year. I have know idea why people keep bringing up how 2010 sucked??? -------------------------- Fable 3 had many issues. I can live with a few bugs that wont end the game, but I cannot play through a game that's simply not fun. Instead of pumping out another Fable in 22 months...they should just remake the original Fable and call it Fable 4. Save us all the trouble of being disappointed by another terrible game...
Fanboy are just so ridiculous with these everything sucks articles. It's really frustrating to come here for game news and uave to sort through all these retarded articles
I think that Fable has a loyal fanbase on the 360. Fable 3 has sold nearly 3 million units since October. Those folks love the game. I haven't bought it yet but plan on getting it soon. Don't underestimate the loyalty of a fanbase. I have xbox live friends who I would never have thought would play something like Fable who love it to death.
Its mainly the people thinking that maybe, just maybe the games will be like the original Fable. Fable 2 was a stepdown from the first, and the 3rd is a stepdown from the 2nd. I at least finished the 2nd one. Third game I quit right near the beginning.
Well they've lost a fan in me. And i aint falling for buying it based on hope and expectation anymore. Fable 1 was great (imo); Fable 2 slipped down the slope. Fable 3 fell off the cliff. Nowadays Lionhead should be viewed with appropriate caution; unless ur into IRPG's (Idiotic RPG's)
LOL...so true. I ain't never going to purchase a Fable game (or any game from Lionhead for that matter) right off the bat ever again.
Traded that ish for LBP2. best trade ever!
2010 sucked? I got: Mass Effect 2 White Knight Chronicles Heavy Rain 3D Dot Game Heroes God of War 3 Red Dead Redemption Final Fantasy XIII Lego Harry Potter Dragon Age: Awakening GTA: Episodes from Liberty City Alan Wake Fable 3 (admittedly the one game I was uber disappointed with all year) Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Fallout: New Vegas And a bunch of downloadable titles like Scott Pilgrim, and the Monkey Islands, and some PSP games like Ghost of Sparta and Kingdom Hearts. I still have to get Yakuza 3, Mafia 2, and Gran Turismo 5. Um, HOW did 2010 suck again? I just can't see it. I mean, sure, if you owned only ONE particular console in 2010, you were lacking in strong exclusives (hint, the console ain't the PS3), but the year as a whole was hardly shit. There were some fantastic games in 2010. It seems as if the gaming populace is getting more and more spoiled by the day. Considering how amazing the gaming was last year, I can't see how a real gamer could have left the year unsatisfied. I'm honestly confused at the notion that 2010 was a bad year for video games. Yes, quite a few games got delayed until 2011, but there was still PLENTY to occupy your time. Man, this generation is full of spoiled, sense of entitlement brats. Grow up and appreciate the incredibly hard work that these developers put into the games we buy. They bust their asses for ridiculous hours a day, months/YEARS at a time, only to have some jackass on the internet say that their years of hard work SUCKED? Any year in which a new God of War, Final Fantasy, and Gran Turismo releases is hardly a sucky year, not to mention all the awesome multi-plats and quality exclusives on the other platforms/handhelds. 2010 sucked. lol. Yeah, RIGHT.
yeah it did, if you compare it to this year
so far, only DCUO, Mass Effect 2 PS3, LBP2, and Dead Space 2 have released this year. great games, and the rest of this year is looking amazing as well, but trying to say that 2010 sucked because 2011 has more games is silly. so, did 2009,08,07 and 2006 suck as well? after all, compared to 2011, those games don't look nearly as awesome. /s
