With Sony delaying many of its first-party releases, Microsoft seemingly has this holiday season in the bag. The Kinect and its onslaught of motion-sensitive games will keep buyers happy; Halo: Reach will no doubt find plenty of buyers between the fans downloading the new maps and the newcomers eager to see where the story began; and the third-party titles, including Rock Band 3 and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, hold plenty of promise. In the midst of all this multi-console stuff, Fable III is hitting store shelves only on the Xbox 360, a worthwhile follow-up to Lionhead Studios’ previous Fable game. It impresses just as much as that game, with a whopping amount of customization, side quests and other goods to keep you venturing through Albion well into the new year. The game’s events follow 50 years after Fable II’s, with the king’s son overtaking the thrown and usurping power into his evil grasp.
