i'd say it was MS's focus on kinect. i've heard they've thrown away $500million dollars for the advertising alone. consider how many top of the line, AAA exclusives could be made with that. and that isnt even counting the money they spent developing it and it's "games". you could be talking $1,000,000,000 all on kinect. fable 3 obviously isnt much of a priority. i'd be surprised if it even had a $10 million dollar budget.

so Fable 3 is a no-buy??? I need to know asap, I preordered and paid in full for the collectors edition. Might be a stupid thing since I haven't played Fable 1 or 2, but have heard that wouldn't matter much if I know my way around an RPG game.

Any followers of the series care to help me out?

i've bought both fable 1 (loved it) and 2 day of release. fable 2 didnt do it for me personally, was a massive dissapointment, so i wont be buying the 3rd. a lot of people here feel the same way. but it depends. do you like the look of it? if so, go for it. judge games on your own experiences, not on someone elses.

From what I've seen if you buy you don't have to regret. If you like fantasy and fooling around in it you might enjoy it. Maybe you could do better but you could also do worse.

Trust me, what you said was important. Just needed some opinions on the series... The Coop stream didn't help, but I loved their trailers...

Wow no Fable love? This one looks to be an actual proper sequel, where as the second game felt so similar to the plot points of the first, alone with feeling like just more of the same. Wasn't a bad thing completely, considering how nice the first game was but this game at least looks to be something unique.

I have a feeling that if the video here made this game look like it belongs on the Wii you should start thinking about upgrading your display to something larger, or clearer. That is unless you're the type that thinks there needs to be exponentially more dirt on everything before it can be 'cool' or good looking.

Also, what has Microsoft's marketing money for Kinect have to do with the budget for Fable? Microsoft is not developing this game, Lionhead is. Fable is a strong xbox franchise and if they aren't focusing on the game as much as they always have don't you think Lionhead would take the game to other platforms? You lose a lot of money when you go exclusive like they do, and that's generally because they are being heavily compensated for their predicted losses for not being on a large chunk of the market etc.

@loosethoughts
Fable is very much about it's humour and style, if you enjoy that from the trailers and think you can appreciate a funny game at times then it's probably for you. That said you should downgrade your pre-order, and get the first game and possibly second game with that money they are not bad :)

@DJJoeJoe: Thanks for your opinion. I loved the trailers and if there is more of that then I am down. Wasn't feeling the whole marriage coop thing, seemed like a filler to me. But thanks, I'm just going to get it tomorrow....

Now thats just nonsense and you know it, if you don't i suggest you check out a Xbox game. This is definitely a step up from Fable 2. And judging by the trailers and gameplay videos it's gonna be fun as hell. Right now i'm on my second playthrough in Fable 2 and loving it. Yes, way too easy and not challenging, yet VERY fun.

is there still 2players on one console co-op like in Fable2 ?

The single biggest problem with Fable, if there is a problem with Fable, is that far too many gamers who have never played a Fable game, love to hate on Peter Molyneux for getting over excited about making videogames - that's it.

I played the original Fable on Xbox, and loved every bit of it.

My second time through Fable, I played the The Lost Chapters (a re-release of the first, with additional content), and loved it as well.

I played Fable 2 on Xbox 360 when it came out a few years back, and with the exception of the very ending of the story (literally the final boss fight), loved every bit of the 30+ hours I spent playing it. I mean, the ending made perfect sense, and in real life is exactly what I would have done, but I was not expecting it to go down that way in a videogame. In hindsight the end was funny as hell, but still at the time . . . other than that, I loved every bit of Fable 2 as I played it.

You know, so many people spend so much time complaining about the Fable series, it's a wonder that every game in the series is a multi-million selling game. I mean, you'd think that with so many people hating on the Fable games, the series would have sold like ass, and Lionhead would have scrapped the series ages ago, and moved on to something else.

But in reality, Fable, right behind the Halo, and Gears of War series, is the third highest grossing franchise on the Xbox platforms. And instead of canning Fable, Microsoft bought the company that makes Fable, and promoted the CEO of Lionhead to the top guy of Microsoft's European operations.

I like to think they did all that, and Fable continues to enjoy so much success, because every game in the series is a stellar gaming experience. But apparently in the world on online gaming forums, that's just me and a handful of other guys who's opinions amount to about as much as a gnat pissing on a fire.

Anyway, despite all the excuses Fable detractors come up with EVERY TIME A FABLE GAME COMES OUT, I'm looking forward to enjoying the third game in the franchise this week. Just got confirmation via text, that my pre-order just shipped a few hours ago, so I am good to go. Not that, that makes up your mind for you; and I really wish there was a demo you could play and decide for yourself. A couple weeks back, there was even a glitch on Xbox.com, where they were accidentally giving away Fable 2 for free for the better part of an entire day - maybe if you had gotten in under that, you could make a more informed decision. All I can say for my part is, I have loved this series from the go, and do not see anything about it that is going to change that any time soon.

Bull-fucking-shit.

That's great that you like Fable, but don't for one second act like the people that talk shit about Fable haven't played the games and are solely anti-Molyneux. I bought both Fables and Fable 2 featured so many missteps, be they unpolished or shallow gameplay elements, that I simply couldn't enjoy it. Others WHO HAVE PLAYED THE GAMES feel the same way.

Boy you offend easily.

Notice that I did not say that EVERYONE who hates on Fable feels that way. I stated that too many people who claim to hate Fable, fit that description - which is the prime reason why despite all the claims of "Fable sucks" that you get all over the internets, the series still manages to sell millions of copies every time they bring out a new one.

And while true with any product, there are going to be people who played it and did not like it (as is your case with Fable), the truth still stands that the vast majority of people who hate on each and every Fable game, have never played one. Most get off with simply hating on Peter Molyneux, as if a videogame designer loving to do his job, is the worst thing to happen to humanity Al-Qaeda.

And just because your anecdotal experience differs from the norm, does not change the fact of the norm.

If you do not fit into that norm, then fine. But that is by far no reason on Earth to get all bent out of shape. Consider it a compliment that you do not fit into the norm, state to the world that you are not part of that uninformed group, and get over yourself.

They should probably stop calling this an Action RPG and just call it what it really is. The Sims.

The reason why it's so easy to hate Peter is because his game is made out to be something that it isn't. I enjoyed Fable 1 and didn't mind the features that were lost or didn't make it in because the core game was still a fun action rpg experience. When that happened in Fable 2 and everything became shallow and meaningless, then it became a huge problem.
This has essentially turned into a god game/action rpg bastard child, a very confused one.

And who are you to say that the "fact of the norm" is that "far too many gamers who have never played a Fable game, love to hate on Peter Molyneux for getting over excited about making videogames"? Where's your proof of this? Maybe it's only your anecdotal experience that supports this, and since you seem to love Fable, maybe it's easier to assume that all these folks not liking Fable simply don't like Molyneux. That's obviously far more likely than the "third highest grossing franchise on the Xbox platforms" just not being all that good to a lot of people....

The thing is, his job seems to be vastly overselling elements in his games. I'm not sure what's to like about that.

get over yourself.
And fuck you too. Me disagreeing with you isn't a reflection of how I feel about myself. I'm sorry you seem to think that's the case.

Nah, Fable 2 was very much an action/RPG...the sims? Oh please :)

So I guess it's anecdotal when despite the complaints of a very vocal group, the first game goes on to sell more than 2.5 million copies . . . and despite more complaints from this very same very vocal group of Fable-haters, the second game does on to sell an additional 1.5 million more units than the first.

See the way the real world works, is when a game justifiably sucks enough to make half the internets complain about it at on every thread on every forum and game blog under the sun (as if they have got nothing better to do with their time than harsh on someone else's mellow), the sales numbers from game to game in the series, declines - not sell almost a million and a half more copies. That's not anecdotal, that's reality.

The fact that this very vocal group keep complaining about the game series, yet for some strange reason beyond logic (maybe it's the hobbe magicks) the game series continues to sell more copies with each iteration, seems to me a clear indicator that perhaps most of the detractors in fact have not actually played the game - and simply continue to get off on hating Peter Molyneux. Looking at the sells numbers for the series, it's not like it takes a brain surgeon and a rocket scientist to figure that out.


And fuck you too.
If that's the way you want to play it, then back at you, chief. Just so long as you know, I'm the one on top.

wow I see some hate here.. but I took advantage of that lil glitch and downloaded Fable 2 on xbox live and was completely and utterly hooked for 3 days. Its really a fun game, and this doesnt look any less of that.

you cant use sales in regards to fable becasue they went from a great to game to a piss-poor one.

considering most people loved the first game, it's kinda obvious that the sequel would gain sales, even if it wasnt as good. reviews at the time seemed to think it was a great game too, but how very wrong they where. but untill we played it, how where we to know. people dont buy sequels when they dont like the game that came before it. fable 1 was great, and so people rushed out and bought fable 2. it's sales have no relation to it's quality or how people feel about it. fable 3 SHOULD have less sales since there are a LOT of people who feel the same way as myself, that the second game was a dissapointment. and people who are dissapointed with a game dont usually rush out and buy a sequel.

i bought fable 2 expecting a great game like the first one. (i contributed to fable 2 sales despite not liking it)
i wont be buying fable 3 because fable 2 was terrible. (i wont be contributing to fable 3 sales)

How silly you would look if Fable 3 sells the same if not more that Fable 2.

Just sayin...
Commented on 2010-10-26 01:42:51
I agree Xion. I too took advantage of the glitch and I loved every second of Fable II. So much so that I pre-ordered the third game. While it may be lacking in some aspects, it makes up for it through sheer charm and atmosphere.

why would i? i said it SHOULD, not that it would sell less. based on the general consensus, most people on forums arnt all that psyched about fable 3. why? because they didnt like fable 2. people who dont like a certain game, dont typically go out to buy it's sequel. thus fable 3 SHOULD have worse sales then fable 2. whether that happens or not, who knows. but it SHOULD.

Forums are honestly a terrible place to gauge how well a product will sell. Scott Pilgrim got incredible internet buzz and was a box office failure. Forums also tend to hate on big productions like MGS4, GTA4, and Halo Reach.
