RipTen - Bethesda just posted a pretty lengthy fan interview that suggest certain features in the game will resemble the Fable series.
I love the Fable series, but his comment sounded too Fable-ish. I'm interested to see how Bethesda handles this one.
"Skyrim Starting to Acquire Fable Like Features" lol no
Guess you can't read. Hmm oh well.
just because they added something like relationships and marriage that doesn't make it an "Acquiring Fable Like Features" so don't worry about my reading skills you need to worry about your gaming knowledge many games did it before dont act now like if fable did it first and everyone + skyrim is ripping it + comparing skyrim to fable is like comparing a Ferrari to a corolla it just dont work
Indeed, besides; this news was already known (to me anyway). The fact that you can get married, have someone move in with you and so on... It's all about how it is developed. I will admit, if developed in a certain way it can resemble Fable, but there are plenty of other ways to develop this aspect in which case it can become something entirely different...
I think this is a great feature. The more details in a RPG the better, imo. As long as they aren't cumbersome to the gameplay, I welcome additions like these.
His problem isn't that he can't read, it's that you put a very misleading title. Fable is a good series, but is a failure in the eyes of gamers. So putting a title like that and comparing Skyrim to Fable is just discussing. You could have said "Sims like" because using "Fable like" is just....bad. Plus a lot of people dislike the Fable series so you're only leaving a bad taste in their mouth.
Only people who dislike Fable or think it is a failure are the ones who never played it and just want it to fail. In your own words it is a good series, it is not great, but there's hardly much about it to vehemently dislike. Fable is the series that tried to establish more prominence in relationships with NPCs, it is not the first to do that, it has not necessarily implemented the best system for it, but it has been a focal point, so absolutely nothing wrong with the title tbh.
You can get married? Oh you can do that in The Sims! New article; "Skyrim Starting to Acquire Sims Like Features"! :/
I didn't know Sims is an RPG.
Never liked the Fable series.
Borrowing Fable features isn't a bad idea, though the game is all ready full of rich content why not add more.
Depends what they take.. If they took the Fps health bar and the No menu system fable 3 implemented.. that would ruin any game
Noooooooooooooooooooo. Get your watered down crap out of my Elder Scrolls!!
It's not really watered down if they are adding and refining. Also the only thing Fable about it is marriage so the title is misleading. You could move into houses in Daggerfall. It came out in 1996! You could also do it in Oblivion. Branching quests were not started by Fable either. I stand by my comment because i'm right. Also doing quests for people in Oblivion raises their disposition towards you making them like you more. Is that not friendship. I read the interview in the other news post and not once did I think Fable.
Actually, making friends by doing quest for them, marriage, moving into houses with your spouse is all straight from the Fable Series. Not just one thing. I agree though, I don't think it will be too much of a problem. Were not talking about Daggerfall, were talking about Elder Scrolls. You couldn't walk up to anyone in Oblivion, do a quest for them and become their friend. In Fable you can. So no, you're not right. EDIT: Disposition did next to nothing in Oblivion with random NPC's. The only thing it was really useful for was getting discounts at shops. It's not the individual features themselves, it's all those features being tied together, which is exactly what Fable did.
He should have read the article.
I hate to make you look dumb mate but Daggerfall is the second Elder Scrolls game. Lol. And yes i'm still right and have clearly been playing Elder Scrolls games for a lot longer than you. I'm also pretty sure that friendship will actually work in Skyrim. It can't be any worse than Molyneux efforts. In Oblivion I considered them friends. They smiled and chatted when I came to visit. Some even invited me into their homes but I suppose you are talking about something more clear cut.
@xPhearR3dx Maybe not in Elder Scrolls, but in Bethesda's other game Fallout they had a companion system. You did something for them, and then it opened an option to have them join you on your quests or complete further sub quests with said companion. This may just be a more in depth addition to that system. Also Daggerfall is ELDER SCROLLS II. Its all inevitable immersion for this kind of series.
@ xPhearR3dx Wish I could down bubble you, but theres not an option for "wrong"
Fable is one of the more unique RPG's. It would actually draw my interest more towards Skyrim if it had some of those elements. A lot of RPG's need to play catch up to the Fable franchise IMHO.
At least you would play it I suppose. The sad thing is he has only ever played Fable so doesn't know what he is talking about. I find Fable to be like those twee family sitcoms. They try to hard to be charming and funny but at the end of the day 10 yrs down the line no one will remember them.
BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAA AHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.... Oh man sorryyy..... Which rpg's need to catch up with Fable? Plz indulge. Oh wait one bubble.
It's raven nomad. Don't ever take anything he says seriously. He is one of the biggest MS fanboy on the site. Put it this way. I'm a big MS fan and even I think everything he says is stupid.
I didn't really like Fable all that much... it wasn't bad, but it wasn't anywhere near as good as Elder Scrolls! That said I know a lot of people loved the game and that is a fair one as it had quite a few things good about it! But as long as I don't have men coming up to me with love hearts over their heads then I won't mind... that was quite off-putting in Fable.
Lmao I hated that. Whenever they came up to me I just farted excessively to get them to go away.
lol sounds like a good plan mate! Still I did find it detracted from my enjoyment of the game just having it happen.... it's like had it been something people could choose to start up that would be one thing.... but having it just happen was just plain annoying... and a bit weird to be honest.... I remember thinking this can't be a good thing for any kids playing... but then I think when these type of things are pushed on TV and in games the main point is to indoctrinate kids anyway... But still.... excessive farting to get rid of them is a strategy to remember just in case I ever play a Fable again!
lol hope not lame features like holding hands and erm generating hype for a really underwhelming short game
Has it been mentioned what the items you find will be like.....will they be random like in Oblivion or will you have to go and earn them like Unique weapons in Fallout 3 ?
I'm not sure if they mentioned this but they did say there's at least 150 dungeons that's not randomly generated so that should mean each would have unique weapons...right?
I loved Fable II.
I like how he says we can take people along on quests with us. now thats badass. hopefully we can form our own factions....and have babies.
So we can finally hold hands?! Yes!! .______.
Can I bang her? If so then yay?
This feature isnt exactly Fable only - But it does raise the question, does Skyrim just want to copy everything? First MMO-Like features (like wood cutting) now this?
Actually Elder Scrolls has similar "MMO-like" features in the past. They're just bringing it back because they have the new economic system they are implementing.
@Hitman In fairness mate, Elder Scrolls does a lot of original things, and it is only natural that certain features in various games will find their way into general use. And certain things like marriage and chopping wood are just normal parts of every day life and so are not really something that can be "copied" as such.
I LOVE fable, one of my fav franchises ever but skyrim will be/is its own game. They may have marrige in it but that doesnt men its like fable. Fable has sim elements, earning money, buying/renting out property, marrige, kids, exc. Both are grat games and nothing alike imo. I love fable because theres nothing else like it, a sim/rpg with charm and humor. I love elder scrolls for it huge world and rich content, its more realistic. Oblivion was really boring after 10 hrs or so, the dungeans were the same and there wasnt much to discover because the land was all the same. Skyrim looks like it fixed all my complaints with oblivion so bring it on!
i dont want nothing from Fable in Skyrim , never!!!!!!!!!
I fought getting married in real life for 9 years. Why do developers believe it's a featutre the average gamer wants? I know its just my opinion but the role I would like to play in an rpg, is that of a hero, or adventurer. Not a whipped life of a loyal husband, doing a 9 to 5 grind. Mostly because it's not a role, it's real-life.
relationships!!!! awesome more immersion for an already fully addicting game =D
I don't see why anyone would not want this, Elder Scrolls has always been about making a character and living in a world that resembles a "fantasy" life. More features that add to that are good thing in my opinion... I want as many features as the can put in.
Great, I cant wait to amuse and entertain dragons by farting and juggling.
Fable series is light, goofy, cartoony & appeals (or should appeal!) mostly to younger & casual gamers. They're basically Wii games. Elder Scrolls series on the other hand is deep, gritty, awe inspiring, complex and requires serious time investment. Both Fable & Elder Scrolls games are great for the audience they are designed for but trying to compare them is like comparing a Disney film with Peter Jacksons Lord of The Rings Trilogy - not possible.
Dont mention Fable in a elder scrolls topic. Elder scrolls is the best rpg series. Fable is a casual console game that everyone on PC pirated.
Will I be able to fart on them like in Fable 3 too?
Oh dear God please not.
I enjoyed Fable II almost as much as Elder Scrolls IV (I know I'm in a minority),but I'd want Elder Scrolls to remain serious like it always has been.
i don't care much, unless peter molineux take a interest on it, cuz anything that peter molineux like tend to failure...
So you can marry people in Skyrim. That is incredible. Game of the century. Once I get this game I'm pretty sure I won't buy another one for at least half a year.
