Fable 2 Preview

Peter Molyneux, a game designer that entered the Hall of Fame of Gaming when he gave birth to the god games with the creation of Populous. Almost twenty years later, he finds himself working for Microsoft Game Studios, after the software giant decided to acquire Guildford-based Lionhead Studios and its satellites.

At the recent X06, TeamXbox had the chance to learn more about Fable 2: the sequel to 2004's ground-breaking role-playing adventure game for the Xbox.

yay, that looked like heaps of fun. guns. thats interesting. not bow and arrow. hmm... i really cannot wait for this game!

willud4skins6404d ago

can we please have an open world instead of small connecting maps with lots of loading times??

Jak4ever6404d ago

Fable 2 is going to be sooo innovative. Its no wonder that Peter Molyneux is in the game designers Hall Of Fame his ideas are so ground-breaking that anything is truly possible. I would not be suprised to see this big suprise turn out to be where your child grows up and (once he comes of age) you will be able to control him and even take him on future quest, in this game or maybe even fable 3!!

Long Live Peter Molyneux!!

is this sarcastic ? i played the first part, and its far to linear for an rpg and to plain. there are not many things wich are inovative. oblivion is 1000 times better as this boring game.

Really? it's one of the only Role Playing Games i can stand. I like the first one. I see it the other way around i see Oblivion as an tast or burdon to beat rather than fun. Are you from Europe?.

I think they're doing something similar to SIMS2 where eventually your character will grow old and die at which point you will be able to continue the adventure using one of your children. I think this will also apply to the NPC's as it seems logical to me that if the world around you is going to evolve then the characters within them must. This also makes sence with regards to the multi-generations, like the example of an acorn to an oak tree, in order to see this you would need a couple of generations of your character, as we all know oak trees don't grow over night it takes many years to grow to maturaty. FINGERs CROSSED this one lives upto the vision this time, although I'll be buying it anyway I loved the first one!

CAPS LOCK6403d ago

except for the part when they included the guns, i think they should not include it. also when is this game out? is it online? is it an rpg like oblivion or WOW or final fantasy?

I know real men use magical wands and spell casting.

Just kidding, I know what you mean

The 7 Best Xbox 360 Games - Console Exclusives Win the Day

The Xbox 360 was a fantastic console in its day with some truly classic titles, but what are the seven best games for the console?

DrDoomer139d ago

I'm pretty used to these lists being bad, but this one is particularly s#ite.

raWfodog138d ago

I think Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon should have been added to the list.

BrainSyphoned139d ago

I'll go with,
Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, Culdcept Saga, Shadow Complex, Ace Combat 6 with the flight stick,A Kingdom for Keflings, A World of Keflings.
Bonus Kinect Games: Happy Action Theater and Sesame Street.
*Skyrim was so bad on PS3 that it almost deserves to be #1*

Husker42c138d ago

I really loved Shadow Complex.

P_Bomb138d ago

Ah yes, Shadow Complex! Good indies back in the day. Summer of Arcade. I enjoyed Trials Evolution as well.

ChasterMies139d ago (Edited 139d ago )

Was this made by a.i.? No human being would put Shadowrun, Fable III, and Splinter Cell: Conviction into a list of the 7 best Xbox 360 games.

Abnor_Mal138d ago (Edited 138d ago )

Would love to play Ace Combat6 on PlayStation, but Xbox decided to buy exclusivity and keep it off a competing platform.

The only mainline game I never played except for one level at a friends place. Game sold less than any other in the series if I remember correctly.

darthv72138d ago

360 had Namco hitters AC6 and RR6... both quality titles. You should at least bust out the 360 for AC6 if you can score the flight stick. Its great.

Hofstaderman138d ago

When the current gen XBOX offering is so lacking people need to refer to games released two generations back....

Profchaos138d ago (Edited 138d ago )

It's a nostalgia peice same reason we get thousands of YouTube videos on sega genisis. Something people have fond memories for but the era is long gone.

It's xboxs golden year imo it was their genisis years the time where they stuck it to the market leaders Sony.

BehindTheRows138d ago

They stuck nothing. Sony screwed themselves giving Xbox an opening. They would have gotten the usual smack down if the PS3 had launched at $399 and was easier to develop for.
