Nothing Wasted in this Fable
1 March 2010
Excerpt: Two Guild Heroes walk into the Bowerstone Bar. The Paladin says to the Avatar, "Have ya heard the one about the Orchard farmer who forgot where he left all his cows in the frozen Northern Waste?" The Avatar says, "Yeah, the Bard won't shut up about it: it's the fable about the lost chapped herds." Fable: The Lost Chapters is an extended version of the 2004 Xbox release, Fable .
Excerpt: A child's life has been irrevocably changed. Will he grow up bitter and twisted from this incident or become a shining example of good? What about neither? Those decisions, and many others, are in the hands of the player. A plethora of choices await those who play out the life of this boy. Originally released on the Xbox, the game was remade and released on both the Xbox and PC as Fable: The Lost Chapters , with new content not included in the original Fable game.
Conclusion: My only gripe with Resident Evil 5 is that the partnership between Sheva and Chris was not fleshed out enough. There were no rough edges or prejudices to overcome and no romance to be achieved or lamented over. They accepted each other and the only argument they got into was Chris explaining to Sheva that she didn’t need to keep helping him after her mission was already over.
Excerpt: When the word got out that Fable, a big hit on the Xbox, was to come out for the PC, most players dismissed it right away. It's no big secret that console-to-PC and vice versa conversions simply don't work. Well what we have here is proof of the opposite. Even though it's painfully obvious that this game was meant for consoles, it does offer a substantial amount of entertainment for the average PC gamer.
Excerpt: We were watching… and listening... and waiting. It was E3 2003 and Peter Molyneux’s associates were showing (behind closed doors) both B.C. and Fable (aka Project Ego). The former was going to allow Xbox gamers to live the life of a prehistoric caveman, and the latter had become a giant cog in the hype machine known as Molyneux’s mouth.
Excerpt: If you played the Xbox version (2004), then you're well aware of what Fable is about. If you haven't, Fable is an imaginative and unique role-playing game that presents moral choices throughout the course of the story; it's not just about running around the world and killing creatures. As you can probably tell from the name, the PC version adds a considerable amount of new content to Fable, in terms of new quests, new weapons and accessories, and other new elements.
Excerpt: Chicken-chaser Goes Forth! As you start your journey through the lands of Albion, you see a young boy day-dreaming. Pretty soon, the player realizes that this boy is the game’s actual main character. Through swordfights, brimstone and fire, he will become the legendary hero of the land. On top of that, he will find out about Albion’s history, as well as interacting with the region’s NPC inhabitants.
Pros: A new take in action RPG's, more than enough character customizayion features, cartoonish graphics, impressive sound
Excerpt: What is it? I have been a bit of a critic of Microsoft in the past. Okay! Okay! To tell the truth, I’ve been a lot of a critic of Microsoft for years, and I don’t expect that to change in the foreseeable future. However, there is one particular area of software that Microsoft has nailed so completely that I positively look forward to seeing their new releases (though I don’t often buy them, cheapskate that I am). Games!
Excerpt: Fable: The Lost Chapters, an introduction. Fable was one of those games that some people really like and others were disappointed with. Part of the problem was that the finished title was not exactly what people were expecting. Those that did appreciate the game found that it wasn't the longest of games and certainly nowhere near the length a RPG should be.
