Lionhead studios has announced Fable 3 at GamesCom. Check in for more details.
wow fable 3 already part 2 hasn't even been out a year yet i just started playing the first one haven't even picked up the second one yet like the game i just really don't like the fact that you age in minutes
I think you'll like the first one more than part 2
really i was thinking the 2nd would be better?
It had so much heart to it. The second felt like it almost had less content. I think they tried to streem line things just a little too much. But from what I have already read about Fable 3, I have some really high hopes.
Fable 2 was awesome but I have to agree that Fable: Lost Chapters was better. One of my favorite games of all time.
Never played Lost Chapters, but the original Fable was absolutely terrible in my opinion. The story was boring and almost non-existent and it was very short.
They had a conference just to show this? Where was there response to Sony's awesome conference? How will the Xbox Defense Force spin this one? Really duh? Anybody? P.s., everybody lookout for Really Duh and his numerous accounts disagreeing with every opinion not pro 360.
aww that's lame i was considering picking up the second one while i do enjoy the 1st i always feel like i want more like it should have more but if 2 feels like less then meh the story is a joke if you ask me but i play the game because its good fun i have the original does the lost chapters offer more?
Chances of me buying this game and setting up my 360 back up... extremely high.
Honestly, you should pick up Fable II. I would highly recommend it. The story isn't that great...especially the ending, but the gameplay is good enough to keep you entertained. If you like Fable I, then I think you will like Fable II as well. Just be glad that you didn't fall into the hype like many other did.
Fable Lost Chapters was amazing for Xbox/PC, but I gotta say Fable 2 was a BIG disappointment. The dog was cool for a while but i wanted it to jump off a cliff after a few hours b/c he made the game too easy when it came to finding treasure. And the push of their "fully functional" online multiplayer aspect sucked hard! Hell...offline and online sucked big time b/c of 2nd player not being able to use his main character and you couldnt get items on it. The Offline sucked b/c you were stuck on 1 single camera together. Fable 3 this early sounds like it will be Fable 2.5. I am crossing my fingers they actually do what they say this time....because im getting fed up with all the promises that turn into disappointment from Lionhead.
I'm sitting here reading the live blog on VG247 (which is pretty much just reciting what Peter is saying it seems). I will say he has a way for building something up. This game is sounding f*cking awesome. Fable has been one of the few titles that I feel regret about missing out on since I'd never buy a 360. Fable 3 here is sounding awesome. I really like the whole strategy element with the Judgment feature and all. Game is sounding very nice indeed. Now it's over? Fable talk is it? That kinda sucks. Though that is sounding to be a huge game for the 360. I am envious of this and Conviction now. Oh well, guess I'll have to deal with it.
from what i hear peter is all about making promises and making something sound so great but never delivering something like that
It's true I posted about it in the open zone, -__-
Yeah that pretty much sums up Peter Molyneux. He promises an ocean and delivers a lake. That's why I took Milo with a grain of salt, and sure enough, after the press got some time with it, several of them said it appeared to be manipulated by a guy on a laptop, and wasn't anywhere near the whole "Skynet interactive living AI" he tried to play it off as.
@ 2.2: As much as I hate to say this, the reason Peter Molyneux is my least favorite developer is because he talks and promises WAY to much. I mean I've never played Fable 1....after watching all his interviews I got very hyped. I bought Fable 2 Limited 2-disc edition, I watched the behind the scenes first, and it was, mostly, all Molyneux promising about the "emotional attachment", I got sooooo hyped put in the game, and watched on of my favorite concepts be turned to a meh game by mediocre execution, I felt sooo sad, so that's why I'm thinking twice before trusting Molyneux again...even though this does seem promising.
its also great for fable fans. The episodic bit sounds a bit iffy though
wow thats big news
Oh..great...i'm so excited..
cool i still want to play these games...mass effect and fable...the two franchises i want on the ps3
Loved Fable II, Can't wait for Fable III. =D Lionhead Studios FTW.
Awesome! I better get my ass in gear and play Fable II then...
The Whole Conference was for this game. xD EDIT: Fine, I'll add Fable 2 too. Seesh disagreeers. There were two announcements all Fable related. The Episodic and Fable III. and you know what. Fable III sounds awesome. Lets just hope its executed perfectly.
lmfao the conference is over...
ya not a lot of announcements lol
So? What were you expecting? A desperate slim model(barely being 2.5 years old)and 100$ pricecut because you're in last place with no market share? haha Xbox 360 announced a new game in a huge franchise. What good news is a slim for you if you own a PS3? PS3 still lost this generation anyways.
once upon a fable sony is leading in 2/3 regions, in Eu and asia ps3 has a good 1mil+ leed, the pricecut will help ps3 catch up in the USA, and sony showed alot more yesterday, uncharted 2, mag, eyepet trailers, a developers diary for the motion wand, 3.00 deatails, video store coming to the EU and announced a new ps3 with a price cut for the old ps3s microsoft, fable 3...
Sure buddy, I'll be here waiting.
every single word i said was an fact and confirmed, you are butt hurt lol
A new game in my favorite series just got announced and I'm "butthurt"? haha See you in 2014, with you in the same mindset and still in dead last place. PS3 seriously lost. You still don't think it has? Ok. See you when PS3 passes 360. It's not going to happen, if it does in 2015...I don't care. I'll be on a new console! PS3 lost. This discussion is boring now, it's not even close.
@ Once Upon a Fable you really trying sooooo hard microsoft showed one game good sony showed like toooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oons of them and 3 weeks from now sony well do the same again lol there is alot of games we know about and they didnt talk about in here so we know they'll do next time
Sony is not in the lead in Europe. You fools.
sony is in lead in europe you goddamn idiot microsoft 9 mil: http://www.mcvuk.com/news/3... sony 10 mil: http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... EPIC FAIL
Microsoft must have about a 10 million lead in America then.
Wow... that's it? MS is either really confident or they just don't care about this show.
better than hearing about no new games.....better than hearing about a price drop on a system you already own...but thats just me....better keep it down though... SDF is on level RED this week
fable 2 was too easy... they better make fable 3 harder.
Yea I thought Fable II was kind of easy too. But the gameplay was fantastic nevertheless, although it felt somewhat limited to me. And I hope to god that there would be a better ending to Fable III! Fable III looks to be an awesome title to own for 2010. I love the idea of being the ruler of Albion and having control of the kingdom, I'm just curious as to how the story will fall out. And I'm really glad Molyneux didn't hype this game up as he did with the first two! Looks like the RPG genre will be having a tough competition next year.
ya the gameplay was pretty fluid, as for fable 3, the story is what intrests me... fables 1 and 2 had very similar stories but now we get to be king... i wonder how different the story will really be.
I was reading over the live blog over at VG247 again. On one of the presentation screen, it says that you will be starting the game as the son or daughter from Fable II... And this is where it peaks my curiosity, because I'm wondering who will you be playing if you did not pick 'The Family' at the end of the game (if you played the game then you will know what I mean)?
Only one game and the conference is over!??! That was a huge disappointed MS.... very sad indeed.
is it really over? What were all the anouncements? i hvent followed any live blogs or anything
didnt know PS3 fanboys cared about Xbox games and announcements. But i guess even they are looking forward to Fable 3. Whats the bet it will have nothing it promises in the final game. Heres an idea Peter M dont promise what you CAN'T MAKE! Fable 1 was awesome Fable 2 took a GIANT step backwards Fable 3 ......... prove me wrong.
Yes, I'm going to be buying Fable III because I enjoyed Fable II. Unlike the bots, I'm actually a gamer and not a ps3 "fanboy"
Don't know about you guys, but I thought that was possibly the most boring conference I've ever followed and personally I think he did a crap job of hyping up the game. Did he really spend 10 minutes talking about touching people? Who cares? I'm a HUGE Fable fan (played them all and loved them all) and I know Fable 3 will be good, but seriously I wish I hadn't stayed up so late to follow that incessantly boring conference.
I stayed up to follow this thing, and all they talked about was Fable 2 and 3. That's it. This is the worse press conference I've ever followed. Ubisoft's notoriously boring E3 press event was better than this. I am VERY disappointed.
I must admit, I was jazzed about the 'revolution' thing in Fable 3 for about half a minute. Then I remembered that Fable 2's a game that I actually haven't finished. Then I remembered how bloody boring Fable 2 was.
Love the Fable franchise. Has so much personality. Everything from the characters, the music, the living breathing world, and the great fairy tale story telling.
How come MS only showed one game? I thought there would be more :(
It's because Microsoft didn't really need this conference (and no, I'm not trying to spin anything). They had a great E3 that was filled with lights and glitter and swayed the audience quite well. This conference was a blow-off for them.
Im just saying it people prepare for another fable hype up and then prepare for the let down.
I agree, this game is hyped to the point that people expect an epic rpg. Peter molyneux has a habit of over-promising and under-delivering. I am not saying that Fable sucks but that it never lives up to its potential as a 1st party RPG, like other MGS published titles i.e. Halo, Forza, Gears etc.
Nice, Forza 3 and Fable 3 ;) GDC 10: Gears 3?
Aaaand we've just had the worst X360 conference ever. I wasn't expecting much and yet I still am dissapointed...
LOL wow, Peter Molyneux is so annoying always overpromising and overhyping his games till kingdom come, Fable 2 was so limited, I got the first game oct 18(don remember the year) launch, it was amazing! But after playing 2 idk -__-
Sony Games cant touch this!
three words the last guardian
What is with SDF and naming games that haven't come out yet? 3 words: Gears of War 13.
MICROSOFT CONFERENCE IS MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR FAIL! I LOLed they even showed up, hahahahahah!!! *farting!
OMG thats it ? i mean its good fable looks soo cool but i Thought they are going to show more stuff WTF
ya, Microsoft didn't have a very strong presence, but all the good games (that im looking forward too) were already announced at e3, but then again some new footage of crackdown 2 would have been nice.
I honestly expected a price drop on the Elite model 360 in retort to Sony's price drop.
@Tomarcus MS are obviously working towards realigning their SKU's and pricing - but to do it so soon after Sony announces a price drop would make MS look like it had been forced in to a knee-jerk reaction which can worry investors and shareholders. The 360 is selling well right now, so no need for MS to make any rash decisions. I don't think the announcement is too far away, but it really wouldn't surprise me if we didn't hear anything until late Sept or early Oct, just in time for the November holiday season buying frenzy!
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
Not really a game to look forward to imo....I dont like where its going with the king or queen option...why didnt they just stick to the regular formula...ahh well.
Once Upon a Fable: It's not exactly as if Microsoft have lowered their own console, as components become cheaper. Leading to the system becoming cheaper to produce, either. Any product that becomes cheaper to produce, will get a reduction in price. Which will obviously become more appealing to interested consumers. Market share? You're saying that the most known brand product, for home entertainment systems. Has "no market share". That's rather an ignorant statement to claim, wouldn't you agree? The PlayStation 3 Slim+price cut was again, announced as the production of the product is now cheaper to produce. Leading to again, a lower price tag. As far as I'm concerned, a product that gets a price cut usually appeals to a large margin of people that currently don't own "said" product, hence they purchase it. As for "losing" this current generation. I wouldn't exactly consider selling neck and neck in US, month after month. With the then higher price point, out selling the Xbox 360 in regions outside of the US, and to this date [which will increase with the lower price], sells at a faster rate then PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360 in the same time period. "Losing this generation".
,but before I give my opinion.where is the dynamic weather in Fable 2? You over promised again with it,and ya knw. .I was looking foward to it.even preordered it.but. . .just,please fix the Fable 3.release it with less glitches.I can go on and on as to why Fable 2 dissapointed me. . ,but I wont.I cant be angry at you anymore.just. .talk less,deliver more.and. .maybe I'll take 3 for a spin.
Fable is one series I'm really torn about. I liked Fable 1, but it was far too short, and I thought the pacing was all wrong. Fable 2 improved things, but to me was more Fable 1.5 in HD. The bugs were a huge disappointment, and the non-existent difficulty was tragic. I'd like to have seen them cut out all the pointless fluff and concentrate on making a really solid core to the game. Also the whole 'Moral dilemma' stuff was just so badly done - you basically make one choice in the entire game at the moment you press the start button for the first time... 'Am I going to be good or bad'. Once that's decided every action is dictated by that - because there was no middle ground for a Neutral player, the best stuff was reserved for either going full good or bad. So overall I was ready to write Fable off - but goddamit, as soon as Fable 3 is announced it jumps right back up my 'Day 1 purchase' list!! :)
