Witcher 2 is going to be another really good RPG. I saw a demo of it at E3 in the Atari booth. The combat system is very action oriented (think dragon age 1) and adjusted the various fighting styles so you could seamlessly move from one style to another without having to pause and switch or manually do so in the middle of a fight. I saw an early beta of it, so I hope it stays on course.

But back to fable. I never played the first one, so my experience is all from Fable 2. I bought it on xbox live for $20. One of the best games I played this year. hands down. I pre-ordered the collectors edition from ebgames.com from the love I had from fable 2 and can't wait to see the expanded story. (not to spoil it but they really set up the end of fable 2 for the sequal.)

I usually only order collectors editions of bioware games, but this was worthy of the extra money to help show my support.

Granyaski;5388483The thing they have to fix the previous fable's is magic. In fable one it was a little like oblivion with shortcuts on the d-pad. Fable 2 was awkward for my liking. Especially as most spells had different effects at level 1 charge but you could only use one spell to that slot...

Even then I hope they fix the legendary weapons. On fable 2 once you get the daichi and the massive...shotgun thingy nothing beats them.[/QUOTE] Peter M. said that he thought Fable 2's "workaround" was horrible in comparison to what they have in mind now. They thought the GUI was way too "old-school". That included the way they made you select spells and abilities. As for Fable 3; it seems the use of magic will be changed a lot, for you'll wear gauntlets this time. Based on these gauntlets, you can combine spells and make a sort of combination, which will become a new "combo-spell" with different visuals. That's pretty badass if you ask me. I believe we'll also have a nice new collection of spells, but I'm not quite sure about that. I hope it's the case, though. [QUOTE=n0e;5388758] But back to fable.

Indeed, well said. Hands down!

Anyway, I suggest you also buy the PC version (or the xbox one) of Fable 1 if you'd like to know the entire story, what the Heroes' Guild was like before it was destroyed and whatnot. I've read pretty much every single book and document in Fable and Fable 2, and the storytelling via books is greatly done.

I was thinking of getting the pc version. There are two reasons I didn't. The first was that there will not be a collector's edition of the pc version (or that was the case when I preordered it) and the game feels more of a console type of game, not one that I would particularly enjoy on the PC. I need a certain level of "immersiveness" in a RPG for me to play it on the pc. Dragon Age actually was at my level of dealing with an RPG like that on a PC. You could tell it was meant more for the console (I absolutely despise games made for the console then ported to PC, they rarely ever play right.) But it was still a fun game and they kept the UI close to what it needs to be for it to be taken seriously by PC gamers who wanted to play it. ME2 was another one... However it seems Bioware does good when it comes to making those types of games. I hope it sticks in DA2.

But yeah, Fable 3 seems more like a game meant for the console.

*Coughs* Assassin's Creed II is an excellent example of horrible porting to PC, without any form of optimization.

And yeah, Bioware always managed to create good RPGs. At least, in my case they never managed to disappoint me; neither with ME series and Dragon Age, nor Jade Empire and KotOR series.

And I agree, Fable series should be played on console and not PC. It's definitely meant to be played on a console. I wonder what the controls for PC will be like, though.

The controller hasn't been released yet. It'll be soon, and available for $59,99. I believe it's limited edition, too.

There is absolutely no way that I'll be preordering F3, especially not some ridiculously priced collector's edition.

Fable 2 was sorely overhyped and the 10/10 reviews highly overstated. I'll need some proof of genuine gameplay and story improvements (I.e. Trying it for myself) before I spend any money on it.

How the hell this franchise passes itself off as an RPG is completely beyond me.

Yeah, I'd call it more of an action game or hack'n'slash with RPG elements. The definition of what makes an RPG is becoming very loose these days. Can customize your character? RPG! Can talk to people? RPG! Got a sword? RPG!

Not bad games, but definitely not cream of the crop. I am enthusiastic to a certain extent, though, because there were some pretty big jumps from Fable 1 to Fable 2 in terms of added content and improvements, so I'm hoping the same holds true for Fable 3.
