BlitZ, The 57th;5392114So other countries don't get shiat?[/QUOTE] Apparently. However, the developers claim that it's an "extra" bonus for marketing purposes that Microsoft wishes to perform. The ones who live in other countries won't lose anything, game-wise. This is just an addition to the complete game.

Some see it as cutting off a part of Fable 3, though. [QUOTE=Granyaski;5392125]Whats the plot line this time? Are they starting anew or are they continuing it on like in fable 2 with all the extra easter eggs? Like how the women(forget her name...she voices Kreia as well)is blatently your sister from the first one and they mention twinblade etc.

The plot line is pretty much a continuity. Fable 3 will take place 50 years after Fable 2 whereas the Industrial revolution is about to happen/is happening. It's been confirmed that Theresa is in Fable 3 (and possibly in Fable 4 and 5, seeing how she's an extremely important protagonist (and perhaps even antagonist)). Fable 3 will also focus on letting players feel that they're more powerful. Peter Molyneux said that he has played a lot of games. What he had noticed while doing so is whenever someone is about to become king in whatever game, credits pop-up and the game (if applicable) doesn't give you any special feeling of being powerful afterwards.

Peter wants to change that. The first half of Fable 3 is all about rising to power. But once reached, you'll actually feel powerful, be able to rule as an actual king. Make, literally, your own laws. The game also features a so-called "judgment feature", whereas you can, at any place and any time, change the law. That'll also, of course, affect your entire kingdom.

Many new features have been implemented as well. Again, it's all about giving the players a feeling of being powerful after having spent a lot of effort of rising to power, and defeating (by rebelling and gaining followers) your brother, who's a terrible tyrant king.

I strongly recommend watching PM's interview videos. You'll get to know a lot about Fable 3.

Graeme;5390817What I'm saying is that Molyneux made mistakes, and knew he made some promises that the game simply couldn't get done. And as such, he'll try to make Fable 3 as good as possible, improving previous mistakes made. There's not much more better than improving upon past mistakes, is there?

The problem is, this is an established pattern. He makes grandiose promises that seem unreal, and it turns out that they are unreal.

Black & White, Fable - the pattern repeats.

He's a PR man, and a very good one - but he's a lousy developer.

Well, if Fable 3 has thousands of unique weapons and another thousand few unique apparels/armour, then I wouldn't view it as cutting part of Fable 3.

1 gripe about large open-ended games I have is always the weapons and armours seems too limited for such a large world.

True enough about the pattern. What can I say, he's a developer who has a lot of fantasies/imagination. Perhaps they can go out of hand some times (e.g. the aforementioned 'promises'), but that doesn't change the fact that his games are a great success and extremely enjoyable.

But, each to his own. Let's await release and see if you actually like Fable 3. I sure know I do.

The Limited Collectors Edition looks sweet! I'm a sucker for playing cards and this will be the third game this year that yields another set of playing cards. (i.e. Red Dead Redemption, Dead Rising 2, and Fable III) That's about the one and only reason I'd pay a little extra.

Fable II at times got downright boring, but I toughed it out and I absolutely loved that game. Although I've learned to never trust a single word that Peter Molyneux utters because it's typically an empty promise. Granted several features get cut from the final product due to size restraint, but my beef with him is that he 'promises' these features without fully realizing the complications. Just saying.

Fable III does look good but I'll more than likely wait until it comes down in price.

Agreed. I love the card's theme. Definitely worth the extra money.

I'll agree with you on the boring part, though not at once. But I completely disagree with your viewpoint on Peter Molyneux's promises. While he might have let his imagination get the best of him (which can be good at times, believe me), he did fulfill the majority of his promises. Besides, he's not the only developer who didn't manage to present a game that was precisely as promised.

I'll agree that he's not the only one to make promises that cannot be fulfilled, but what I mean is that he promises features that haven't even been developed or tested. Most, not all, but most developers make promises because the feature is at least present in an earlier build of the game, but typically due to size restraint or redundancy the feature is cut from the final product.

Wrong. Peter Molyneux did state in one of the interviews that the features he had promised for Fable II (back then) were actually in development, but got cut off due to the reason you have stated.

With Fable III coming out, I guess I should buy Fable II, I'm sure the prices will lower.

I had a bad experience with Fable I, so I have been hesitating to buy II.
