Fable III is very near to completion, Peter Molyneux has confirmed - as the development great confesses his admiration for Valve and Half-Life 2.
Nice hopefully it will answer the question as to what happened at the end of Fable II. Though if it's near completion I wonder what the release date will be set at. I'm also hoping that some of the flaws that were presented in Fable II will be fixed.
good news, more time to polish the game
I'm only maybe 1/2 way through the game (after the second hero). Got distracted with all the sim-elements and then I put it down ages ago for other titles. I keep meaning to get back to it though, and need to finish it (and the DLC I bought) before the fall. A non-spoiler response would be splendid! @ Below. Wrong zone. And most of that was barely English. You're an embarrassment to fanboys. And you're off topic. This thread is about the Fable series. Maybe you missed that?
Oh yeah, you already played it, right? Regardless what you say, i'll read 'no' because thats the truth. Oh and btw, that HD VERSION is pretty funny. You know what happens when i plug my 360 into my 1080p Bravia? The Dashboard looks all muddy and washed out. How do you want to deliver a HD Version of a game if you cant even have the Dashboard in full HD.
"You know what happens when i plug my 360 into my 1080p Bravia? The Dashboard looks all muddy and washed out. How do you want to deliver a HD Version of a game if you cant even have the Dashboard in full HD." .......your supposition is meaningless, 720p is hd. and before you jump to that stupid conclusion that it's isn't, THINK of all the ps3 games you're excluding that are. lolz.
This is a series that continues to drive up on hype and never delivers. Let's see if Molyneux can actually back up the bullsh1t for once.
fable 2 with a cliffhanger ending? probably one of the worse ending to game possible, you don't even have to do anything make a choice out of 3 picks, and...theres no epic boss battle :( fighting trolls was more fun then the ending of fable 2
Fable is one of my favorite RPG franchises. I can't wait for the third game.
While i love the Fable series, its ruined by Peter Molyneux's over ambitious ideas. He talks about emotions so much, yet the game lacks it completely. the only game with a emotional level is Mass Effect. And he loves hyping the hell outta his games doesnt he?..... he talks em up to such unrealistic levels that you always feel disappointed with the final cut. Lets hope F3 can deliver the same experience that F1 delivered.
At least it shouldnt get delayed then
hm that not really an good news.. Fable 3 is an rushed sequel for me :/
an then judge ...
You probably thought L4D2 was a rushed game too huh?
If the tech is already in place only minor improvements would be needed to it, the rest of the resources can be spent on creating the content and such. I'm sure Fable 3 started development before the second game shipped, that reminds me, I still need to beat Fable 2! :P
that's cuz it's the same game DUH
It seems like this game is coming out way too fast.
2 years is too fast?
Fable II came out October 2008. Fable III might get released this holiday or early 2011. It'll be about two years, I don't think that's too fast.
Its not coming out too fast. It was just announced a bit too early.
Uncharted 2 says hi! (dev time 18 months)
Man that guy gets on my nerves...
Peter? I don't know why people hate him so much he seems like a really intelligent guy that I wouldn't mind having a conversation with.
I just tend to take everything he says with a pinch of salt. I quite like the guy tbh, he has made some great games. I think he wants everything he says about a game to actually make it into the game but it never actually works out like that.
Well i dont hate him,he is kinda funny.But he promised things for Fable 1 that didnt happen till now,and probably wont.He is hyping his games to heavens,i think he could be pretty good developer if he concentrated on TODAY and just polishes it with great rpg gameplay,nothing more.
In the end all you get is a polished turd...
How is MAG?
Fable was never a turd. Go check out the reviews. Both Fable games were much better than anything the ps3 has been getting lately.
Maybe I should check out the first two...
Check out Fable:Lost Chapters on Xbox or PC.Its really fun
locked and loaded for MS
Fable 3 + Natal= Day one purchase
The 360 has an absolutely killer lineup this year. I mean truly killer.
Fable 2 was an RPG 'lite' in my eyes. I sunk about 12 hours into it and got sick of it. Will be giving this a miss.
I loved Fable 2. Hmm.. I gues to each his own.
Lets hope this one is better then Fable 2, I couldn't stand playing Fable 2 and I finish Fable (The one with all the new stuff on it). Fable 2 was said to have alot of great things an didn't bring it, so I hope this one does and bring back alot of the better spells or something better to replace them.
...but nowhere near as good as the first one.
i hope its good tho cuz the first game was amazing, the 2nd sucked balls only because its lack of evolution. honestly i hope people in towns do more than get an angry Smiley over their head when i slash them with a sword. im looking for reactions like that of oblivion. in oblivion the whole town wud attack you, if some people liked you they might help you. i enjoyed going into dungeons and randomly seeing other adventures inside of them, adventures u cud kill, adventures that cud help u. those things make the world feel more alive. crap like that doesnt happen in fable 2. the so called morality aspect is a joke in 2nd fable since all u do is go to the church and erase ur sins. if there is so much morality and consequence then the 3rd game better have some real consequences, then i will actually beat it......2nd was so bad to me i traded it in 10 hours into the game....cudnt take it anymore lol. halo sword was sweet tho
Peter Molyneux is the master of hype
...you didn't say that in the KZ3 article...interesting.
I said I wanted Resistance 3.
Awesome! I can't wait for this. The fable series is always fun. Also it looks like we're not going to see a delay, which is amazing because Molyneux is an admitted perfectionist. I thought for sure it was going to get pushed back a month or two, like the first 2 games.
we might even get aKZ3 this year....since the engine and all that crap is already situated. just as Gears of War 2 came out quick...etc I've always felt they should do the 3rd game of any trilogy on the upcoming next-gen console lifeline.(That's just me)
As much as I enjoyed Fable II I just wished it was a lot better. I'm hoping the third game will deliver on all the promises Peter is making.
X360 will have 2 AAA games this fall with more to come at X10, GDC, and E3. With Natals launch lineup and rumored GeOW3 and probably PGR5 and Killer instinct 3...I think X360 will be great this year.
2 AAA Vs Sony's long list. Yeah I don't know about that, their is only one game I want for the 360 and that is Halo.
