The First 10 minutes: Fable 2 (English)

The First 10 minutes: Fable 2 (English)

I managed to record some videos from the English version of Fable 2, so let's start from scratch again but this time with some very British voices. More this afternoon, with finally some adult age videos.
Update: 2 videos added, showing this time something new!

Is that Alan Ford (the guy who plays Bricktop in Snatch) doing the voice over for the thief who wants the warrents and who suggest you should shoot the beetle's?

i have a question about fable 2,

is it like fable 1 where after a short loading screen your character is suddenly an adult? or is it more gradual?

i also think in fable i think the age (just how the character looks really nothing else was affected) was changed slightly everytime you completed a main quest and therefore progressed through the story (so during the last quests you are quite an old man) (or have grey hair anyway...)

is that how it worked??

anyway well in fable 2 if you just stand when your a young man and leave your xbox on a few days andcome back will you still be a young man?

i hope these questions make sense... would be intresting to know whether the game has progressed in this area or not. i would guess not given the technolagy. maybe fable 3...

There's no real time aging, you simply age jump up to adult hood a little into the game and from then on you age each time you level up. Real time aging would be awesome, but I don't think it would work in a game like this, it just isn't long enough. Something like that would only be useful in an MMO or something you could play for years to gradually see the change.

If I have to stare at someone for 10+ hours, I'd rather it be nice looking. Not talking about the child phase of course ;)

This game is incredible. I have only done a mission or two, but I can't wait to dive back into Albion!

We all know it's because of the female to female marriage that can take place. That kind of phases out the condom items though.

You're doing us proud Blim! Thanks!

I've been waiting for this since I completed the first game, looks like it's going to be all worth it.

Unfortunately, those who never understood the attraction first time round aren't likely to *get* it this time either. They'll be the ones missing out...

:o)

real time aging would be insane, cause the dude that just did sidequests might die of old age before getting to conquer the game.
Commented on 2008-10-22 18:16:46

lol well i would guess they would cap the age once your an old man so you dont die. or maybe once you die u become a level 1 ghost or devil depending on wether your good or evil and progress through the ranks of deadness lol... i dunno use ur imagination!!

LMAO. U dont see the connection?

Dont get me wrong, this game looks AMAZING. Cant wait to play it.

But the dungeons, the helping companion, the treasure chests, the world expanding before you, all reminded me of Zelda OOT. Bound to happen I guess, but the similarities are quite apparent.

The voice acting is really good. Good job Lionhead.

Hey Blim Blim, do you know if the french retail version has the english voices as well (switching depending on the console settings)

Nah fable 1 felt like a pretty unique game, sure it borrowed elements from zelda and lots of rpg's but no more than other games.

Wouldn't surprise me, they pulled a lot of big cards for the voices.

Hence my initial comment. Wow, make one flippant remark then spend the next three explaining it. Chill out geeks.
