GC08: Images of Fable 2

GC08: Images of Fable 2

Microsoft, for some strange reason, waited until now to release their assets for the Games Convention. Here's a couple of images from Lionhead Studios Fable 2.

Hopefully this game runs at 720p and not some downscaled resolution.

Looks very good, hopefully I have money to get it when it comes out, if not, I will have to wait a bit more.

I got over 80000 Gold from the Pub Game, unlocked pretty much all the top items I want in the game to be accessable through the pub game, so I am ready to purchase the top notch clothing, weapons, items...etc.

Atmospherics look brilliant. I never played the first game, but if this turns out to be as good as everyone thinks, then it's a must for me.

Dont you feel like you remove alot of the game by being able to unlock everything straight away?

The game looks great.. looks like that last minute polish is coming in to effect

Even if it did... does it matter? I mean isnt the gameplay and the looks more important then a technical number of scanlines?

No.. Fable looks like it has an amazing art direction and I want it as detailed as possible, I know I found the 580p of Ninja Gaiden 2 pretty disappointing. Regardless, I'll enjoy them.

Also, I'm collected alot of gold in the pub games for insta-gratification later.. I'd imagine getting enough gold for everything ingame could get tedious, but I plan on destroying it like I would a zelda game.. and that is the way I like it.

the atmospher look great and the art design and visuals are nice as well
Commented on 2008-08-25 21:55:53
not everything is avalible at the start so i wouldnt worry about that, i have 7000 gold :)

The look is kind of the anti-Gears of War... and that's not a bad thing.

You're talking about the cow, right?

I'm sure they thought of the fact that they released that program ahead of time
There is probably some ridiculously expensive merch in the new one
Not to mention just about everything worth getting is mission based and will not be sold in a shop for money

As for this being the anti-Gears? Fable predates Gears so I don't know what the hell you're talking about
Commented on 2008-08-25 23:08:31
This is gonna be one hell of a game :) and you can buy every building you see and they say you need around 100 million gold to do it :)

Was it NG's resolution that you found disappointing or the art direction? I found some of the later levels to be fantastic-looking regardless of the lower resolution. I also found Halo 3 amazing to look at despite not quite running at 720p.

It'd be nice if Fable ran at 720p, but it wouldn't be any less worthy of being played at a lower resolution.

if its a lower resolution yet still has framerate problems, then that would put a dampener on things a little. thats the only way i would excuse a less then 720p resolution personally, if it was lowered to increase framerate...cos imo, framerate comes first.

i have a question...

if you buy every single building, house, and castle... then where will the people of albion live? especially if u were evil and decided not to rent any houses out to people :P i wonder what would happen

Too many games are getting a easy pass for non-HD resolutions. I care for how sharp and crisp the games end up looking, how certain things just pop out at you in hi-res, not just how the lighting or art style is done. Obviously I'd still get the game if it runs lower than 720p, but it would still be disappointing considering we're now into our 3rd generation games and 720p still isn't the standard.

Personally, I didn't find Halo 3 to look too amazing, nor how some stages in NG2 just lacks any kind of clarity even compared to the worste levels in DOA4.

Additionally, every accessible property (properties that can be entered by the player) in the world is ownable, and ownership often unlocks further quests. The houses will be furnishable with furniture etc available to buy. In addition titles will be awarded for buying property; if one were to buy every building and piece of land in a town he may become the mayor of that town; owning more land leads to higher titles such as king, and eventually emperor of the entire land of Albion.
Or at least, so says the internet.
