Loud Mouthed Gamers: Lionhead Studios just recently closed out a trilogy with Fable III and since then people have been looking for whats next in the franchise. Official Xbox Magazine might have an answer.
*sigh* Lionhead needs to let this series die and do something new Now Fable is just being milked with the Kinect game next year and now this
you seem to be mixing up with something else
I think it's being milked not because they released another after another, but because most sequels after the first keep getting worse and worse with broken promises. LionHead keeps saying that they have all these ideas and then end up saying that they'll be for the next fable. I feel like they could really do something with Fable that could make it as good as most people want it to be. The fact that they made it easier and less story and side quest was an issue with 3. Magic was slowly decreasing after each Fable to. The game is not bad, I just think a lot of what was there been taken off. I feel like they are holding back the game. Sure the graphics improved, but the overall of whats in the game hasn't by much. People want a full Fable game experience that they got with 1. By milk I mean that the game isn't adding much from it's previous installment.
360 needs some new IP's like PS3 has. 360 owners must like chocolate milk. http://www.gamesonsmash.com...
Fable 1 & 2 were alright 3 was a dissapointment. Hopefully 4 makes up for it and this time finally peter delivers on his promises haha milk? what milk just because people like fable and lionhead keeps making them its not milk...
"milk? what milk just because people like fable and lionhead keeps making them its not milk... " You just described Activision, EA and a handful of other franchises there, pal. It is milk. Milk is when you basically squeeze paid content out of a game without much or any improvement (i.e., Call of Duty). The idea behind milking a franchise, per se, is that the company invests as little as possible in researching or developing new software or middleware to support the release of a game (or additional content) at full retail price. A lot of franchises this gen fall into that category. Grand Theft Auto IV, Red Dead Redemption, Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsport are a few games/franchises that supercede this standard because the developers each time have gone out of their way to improve, enhance and innovate the gameplay.
Milked? Theres been 2 fables this gen. Theres been 3 uncharteds, like 5 gow's on ps3 with hd releases, 3 resistances lol. Fable is one of the best franchises out there, its not for everyone but its quality. Theres no other game with the humor, sim elements, and rpgs elements blended together with choices making such a big impact on everything. You may not like it but millions of us love it. Ive played about 50 hrs of each game and can easily get lost in the games and fable 4 is one of my most wanted games period.
So far theres just been 2 fable games this gen....just TWO. Thats not milked. What is your defination of milked?
xbox 720 game is my bet just like Halo 4
Halo 4 already announced for Xbox 360 http://www.youtube.com/watc...
It could be they just don't want anyone to know about the 720 just yet. Remember many games were announced for last gen but ended up being current gen games.
Halo 4 i think is going to be a xbox 720 title it doesn't make sense to put it on 360 now. I believe they lied and they are gonna announce the 720 next year
I hope they add more stuff in this, especially the magic...in the first Fable there was a load of magic and the system sucks more with each installment. I mean fair enough take out most of the spells in the sequel but to add "magical gauntlets" in the third game to allow you to use magic............<sigh> Look at Elder Scrolls Skyrim...over 80 differen't spells. Come on Lionhead To be fair this isn't just about magic....clothes, potions, accessories, side quests, bigger map. Theres a lot they could add to this game but I don't know what's stopping them. What's holding you back Lionhead or is it just plain laziness
i consider Fable as an arcade,'kiddy' RPG,it's too linear and basic in every side.When compared to a game like Skyrim,it heavily fails in comparison. I once played oblivion,then reverted back to Fable 2 and just couldn't believe how limited you are in terms of quests,cities(loading between every small city),characters(etc..).
It's funny aswell because the first Fable was really good...it was something I thought they could of easily improved on but it just seems like they tried so hard at not making it complicated....a little too much if you ask me
Each game has been worse were 3 wasnt even an 80 ranked game
This is good news. I love the Fable franchise and even though it seems to get a lot of negative reaction here, I know it has a very good fanbase. I think the issue with Fable 3 was they tried to streamline it and only gave themselves a 2 year window to make the game. If Fable 4 were to come out in 2013 then that means they have had a proper 3+ years to create a solid entry. I hope they keep some things from Fable 3 but also go back to the first two Fable games. Also, please stop with the milked talk. There have been 3 Fable games in 8 years. That is hardly "Milked".
Didn't Molyneux said he was getting tired of games just being the same, over and over again? Then again this is a rumor. So I guess we'll have to wait and see.
He says a lot of things. They usually don't mean anything. It's better to ignore everything he says and just play his games for what they are. They are much better that way.
I just hope that this time they deliver with their promises. Because what i dont like about fable is because the devs hype up the game with a ton of cool features and in the end it ends up not having most of them.
Well, if it's true, at least they are being given time to develop it. I hope they listen to fan feedback this time. We want more enemies, more magic. Bring back the expression wheel, and fist-fighting. KEEP THE ART STYLE please and thank you. Make it an RPG again. I've no problem with action, but I want my Fable IV warrior to be my own. Quit wasting time talking about "could be" features and actually add them in. Bring back EXP, Guild seals as EXP was ridiculous. Keep in the witty banter, the debauched bedroom parties, get rid of the inexplicable framerate drops and bugs. Horses would be nice. More weapons, like Axes, Bows, and Scythes. Come on Lionhead, you guys aren't incapable of making Fable IV the best Fable yet, you just need to listen to us. We don't want Fable to be further streamlined, we want it to be the experience you promised us all the way back in the original Fable. You'll have had 4 Fable games to test everything out. Look at all the Fables, pull the best out of each of them and then give us a Fable game we can be proud of.
Peter is a dirty liar who lies for the sake of false promises and sales. and people sadly fall for it, well after strike 3, i dont think many will fall for it again fable has potential if it would mature (farting minni games? wtf?) and actually deliver on promises. OH and please, if i slash someone in the face I want to see real consequences, not -5 next to an angry smiley face. I wanna be attacked. the series fell after part 1. pretty sad honestly, want areal rpg? play skyrim or darksouls if ur up for the challenge
Fable 3 destroyed any credibility they had, there is no way I'm gonna even consider buying this. For a game made 6 years later it is flat out awful compared to Fable 1. Meanwhile games like skyrim look to be pushing the genre farther, much like its predecessor oblivion did. I don't see any way this game will even compete with all the great games that will be out by that time.
Please Microsoft let this man make something different. God knows you need some diversity.
Hopefully it'll be as good as the first two. ...And as for Fable being milked, I wouldn't mind if they were all good.
Unless they make some major changes and improvements I'm done with the Fable series.
I have a feeling this will be a reboot, different hero, different time period. Fable as we know it is done, at least I hope so. I am sick of Fable as is, it needs to change everything about it but still be Fable.......... -_- Fable: A New Chapter Begins Fable: A New Hero Is Born Fable: The key to a woman's heart...... is farting. Fable: Kill a man's family, fart and all is forgiven. Fable: Take my hand while I kill you with my dog.
This series is dead. After the 3rd game you think they would of realized this by now.
Fable 3 is a great action adventure game. That's right, it's an action adventure game, not a sandbox rpg. Appreciate it for what it is and you'll enjoy it more. The fact that they are working on a controller based Fable is fantastic news. Fable The Journey is just a side project made by a different team at Lionhead.
halo reach 2 2013 gears of war 4 2014 forza 5 2014 halo 5 2015 Fable 5 2015 and so and so on
