LOL what?

Anyways, gameplay system sounds great, but I really need to see gameplay to see how it plays out.

No, but the art style in combination with the uniform is certainly associated with it.

Artstyle isnt even remotely close to Fable, especially not with this screenshot.

Last time I check, Fable art had "Tim Burton" written all over it, this one isnt.

Never seen it as being tim burton-esque at all really. It was more fairy tale looking, and this looks very similar to fable 3 stylistically. It certainly doesnt look realistic. The guy looks very characatur-ish.

It looks nothing and I mean nothing like Fable, some of you guys needs to watch more varied and more stuff out there jeez.

It reminds me of Master and Commander.

In other words sort of generic?

Maybe.

Ah well, I just dont see it, but its all good.
Commented on 2011-07-13 01:05:23
Looks far more Piratey than Fairy Tale!

Yep, Fable4 confirmed! :-)

Well i know where your coming from korn dont worry :)
Its got the background of bowerstone industrial, he has the pose of a fable character, his gun looks like a fable character his clothing looks fable styled and the face from what i can see has that kinda fable look to it, yes none of those things are exclusive to fable, neither is many other styles in other games..

by going from that 1 screen shot.. all the gamers i showed at work assumed it was fable until i showed them the title.

Great to be hearing more from Arkane Studios. I actually liked their game Dark Messiah of Might and Magic.

    GriftGFX Now with that said.. there's no cure. Most of these disorders are poorly understood, as is brain chemistry. And people like Chris Cornell were being treated. But results vary. Better than a sugar pill (5 Hours ago)

    KORNdog @GriftGFX: that's why i said "can" there are instances of people having better results from a placebo than that of legit medication. i never said it was a replacement for it though. (5 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX There's plenty of scientific evidence that various psychoactive drugs are more effective than a placebo. They wouldn't pass the rigorous approval process in the USA without said evidence. (5 Hours ago)
