They have been awfully quite lately. Hopefully MS is going to do FASA on them. God, I hope Smith and Tinker has something to show at the GDC too.

With the award winning geniuses at Microsoft Research Labs working on Fable 2, I have no doubt that it will be yet another AAA title Only on Xbox 360

Microsoft research labs?!?! You realize that it's Lionhead who created Fable...Not MS..
Of course MS helps and all, but it's Lionhead that's behind it all.

The combat system sounds very interesting deep but simple.

you never played Fable? it is one of the best Western RPG in my mind. And I can't wait for the second one. When is it coming out, this year right?
