Play and GAME dont have anything up (yet), they do need to say which retailers will be offering the pub games with it so soon.

Cheers Chief, its a shame they didnt just put that in the press release too.
GAME and GameStation, grim, the money goes to the same company either way.

Only £5 more in the UK, so it's definitely worth the price.

The extra content looks very cool, particularly the Spartan armour, very amusing. The little Hobbe figure is very cute and Lionhead tend to have fairly interesting documentaries.

The fate cards have me a little worried though.. they contain spoilers?

Pictures don't really do the game justice, but what can ya do, it's still really beautiful.

Fable 2 is beautiful. Perhaps it doesn't have the best shaders or textures of all games, but overall it just amazing to look at. I love the unique and quirk yet really cool artstyle. It's just amazing that Lionhead can put some crazy shit like this MC armor etc, while devs like Silicon Knights fail badly when they attempt some quirk things. I guess some devs just have that magic touch.

I am trying not too hype myself too much, but after E3 it's my most anticipated game this year. Hopefully it'll deliver.

That's the weird part. I think it has some of the best textures and shaders, but it doesn't show up well in screens, for whatever reason.

I'm not really a RPG gamer, but I think I might try this one.. It looks cool, and I like the fact it has online co-op..

Yeah well calling fable an rpg is a bit of a stretch to begin with so yes...you might enjoy this :)

Whats so special about that game?
The only thing that makes it different from an sub-average rpg is this whole good-or-bad-thing.

But if you ask me, its utterly samey if you choose the good or the bad side...

The only thing that changes is your outer appearance and the way the people react when they see you.
I seriously don't give a toss how people react when meeting my charcter which if you ask me looked crappy (in Fable1) no matter if he was good or evil....

If the choice of good or bad won't influence the story/gameplay more than in part1, again it'll be a disappointment for me!

It's fun...?

I agree that the good/evil aspect didn't have much bearing on much at all in the first Fable, but the game was still fun.

Too bad for you if you can't just enjoy a game.

In a way Fable felt like a huge disappointment, but that's only because a certain mr. Molney...ux(meh, whatever) couldn't keep his goddamn mouth shut about how amazing it was going to be with all the amazing choices. I mean, if you actually listened to what he was saying it sounded like the game would allow you to marry barnyard animals and sail the seas as a pirate or whatever you could dream up. Unfortunately that's not realistic in any way and that sure as hell showed when we got the actual game. That aside, fable was a decent hack and slash adventure. Sure it might have been a bit on the easy side at times and you had virtually zero impact on the world, but if you took it for what it was it wasn't all that bad.

The same goes for this. I simply expect more of what we got in part 1 and as such i don't think i'll be disappointed.

Pretty graphics!

I enjoyed fable, didnt really read into the hype or anything but it served its purpose, I think with the sequel they have nailed a lot of what had been promised and exceeded a lot of things. Really looking forward to gettin stuck into it, gonna preorder it GAME tomorrow methinks.

Well I can say one thing about Fable 2: I'm not letting anybody into my world! No way are you gonna kill my wife!

Molyneux mentioned somewhere that you'll have the choice of whether or not to allow other players to kill people, so we can play co-op without fear =)
