Looks good, hope they'll realise to add a nice character creation mode this time around (including gender and stuff).

First game ran like a dog with no legs though

This is what Fable should strive to be. Not the more crap buggy game aspect, but the more realistic and fresh look with each iteration. (this is in the same engine, i suppose.)

I want to live in this world where aliasing doesn't exist, it is just a render tho

Can't agree with you there. TWII actually runs very smoothly ,barely any loading times and it looks quite ok. Risen on the 360 on the other hand looked absolutely horrible, ridiculous loading times, controls that reaaaaaally took some getting used to, pop ups, dull , drab looking graphics, while on PC it looked very impressive.

I loved Risen though , despite it being a very questenable port, the quests were great, the atmosphere was great and everything else, just not the things i mentioned. They could have been done MUCH better. I hear stuff about that the makers of Venetica are making the console port for Risen 2....oh no!!!!

I bared with Risen for about one our before uninstalling and never playing it again, on PC. Though i'd say it was about as shitty as two worlds, which was fantastically shitty. I'd sooner recommend Divinity 2 as it was far better.

This game better get some bloody fantastic reviews for me to give it a go and even then i'd be reluctant to buy it :P

That world exists for a price. It's called PC Gaming :)

This looks pretty questionable for target renders. Hope it really does look this good, but I'm not expecting anything.
