5 Fable 2 images

The release of Fable 2 is almost there, and even though Microsoft is still a bit stingy with the videos here are some five new images of this much awaited game.

im super excited about this game, but i gotta say, those shots (and most shots tbh) dont exactly make it look much better then fable 1 in terms of visuals

There's something about how both fable games look that i don't really like...i can't say exatcly what it is (possibly bloom from hell), but just look at pic 4. Maybe it's the lighting or something? I don't know, it looks wonky.

Well, i'll be getting and playing this on day 1 at any rate.

Yeah it doesn't look great but i bet its one of those games that looks a lot better in motion.

To mastes1: It is :)

Just got an e-mail from MS today saying my console's been repaired and is on its way back to me, yay! First thing I'm doing is *hopefully* completing the original as I've never actually gotten that far...even though I love the game, though that's a premature statement ofc lol! Got stuck at a ridiculous point and never tried again, wtf @ me :(

WoW Look Fantastic ^^ I love FABLE

actually their finally releasing some screen shots that do make it look abit more pretty. I just really hope its good in motion..not just in terms of textures, animation...but also framerate..as the last video footage i saw of it looked slightly worrying..

These shots aren't the doing game any justice at all.

This game will own all (except GOW2 of course ;) )

for me it already owns gears. but thats not a difficult thing to do for me personally since im not a huge fan of gears to begin with. im just hoping it looks way better in motion. its odd, these screens look like ass, yet the most recent screens over at gamespot look pretty crisp, with clean edges http://uk.gamespot.com/xbox360/rpg/fable2/images.h...

I think this has been discussed in pretty much every one of the posts here about Fable, but if you watch some of the actual gameplay footage, it does definitely look a lot better than these shots.

How do you know for sure? the game isn't out yet... there's always the possibility that it sucks.

I see what you mean... that pic is really awful. I hope the game sucks, cos I don't own a 360, and it would really suck not be able to play a great game.

...wha?
Arguably not being able to play a great game would suck, but unless you have a significant brain deficiency getting a 360 would seem like a better alternative to the game sucking.

Errr, ever heard of a little thing called gameplay footage? The game looks so much better in motion.

Well i'm an RPG fan first so it will be close, but for me nothing comes close to the thrill a min intense action in Gears, and if GOW2 is indeed bigger better and more bad ass, it will edge it for me.

even that wouldnt make it top fable for me. although being bigger, better and more bad ass would certainly make my feelings towards the franchise a little more possitive.

I think that you have a overly positive memory of how good Fable 1 looked.

Fortunately we have a bit of insight. Some developers have already played the latest build and they say it's awesome.

i've played it recently, it had just as much foliage as this, similar level of detail and poly models, and just as many jaggies...but it was one of the better looking games on the xbox so its to be expected the jump wouldn't be HUGE (based soley on these screenshots) but i DID expect a little better from a first party developer.

but by the looks of things they seemed to have gone the route of keeping the visuals reletively unchanged while increasing content and exploration. which im fine with, sure as hell beats a shiney game that lasts 4 hours.

i wasn't trying to start anything, it's just a new trailer recently released that i thought was awesome and followed the trend of conversation(bigger, better and more badass).

This is one game, where the quality of the screens wont phase me one bit. Ill be buying this game on day one for sure. We know what the overall graphics are going to look like, if you like the series, you will buy it, if you didn't play the original but like RPG's, you should buy it. I game like this, needs to just be played to appreciate the work that's been put into it, as well as the scale of the game being so big.

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog that's my understanding of it anyway based on the little i've read about it. seems like it'll happen though. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog less risks (not like ubi are particualrly great in that regard anyway) and just barrier for them to do their job. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, for the first time in BioWare's history, they are finally using full facial capture to record the actor's performance. Plus its the first time the Mass Effect team is using the Frostbite engine. (4 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @nostradamus: BioWare talks Mass Effect Andromeda squadmates, cut content and that missing release date: [url] Read 5th answer. (4 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Moonwalker: well, i'll on a leg and say its a "lie". It seems on par with DA:I, and if they think thats fine for a reveal trailer, then it doesn't bode well for the final product. (4 Hours ago)
