Fable looks good...

I must say i'm impressed. I got done reading my friends GameImformer, and the cover story was Fable. The graphics and the fact that you can do pretty much anything you want made me consider even reserving this game...which I don't do often.

It said you start off as a boy and as you progress, your appearence and skills respond to your decisions. Like if you kill some girl in the village, and she was married, the father and kid's will hunt you down. Your appearence will then change into a darker more sinister look, and you can forget about anyone selling you items or letting you sleep in the inn.

Also I thought was cool is if you get a cut and you do not put a bandage on it, it will turn into a scar.

Just thought I would share this with you. What do you guys think?

Agreed. Reading about "Project Ego" was what made me want to get an XBox in the first place.

It does look impresive, but this is the only game I have seen that has made me want to buy XBox. One game will not make me buy a system, unless that certain game is Mother 3/Earthbound 2.

Yeah, I've read about this game and it does sound freaking awesome. I hope they can deliver on half the stuff they claim- 'cause even then it'd be good. I still can't help but think that this game would've been better on my PC, though.

But I can't wait to see what this game finally turns out like... any word on when that is btw?

Also, I can't help but think that this game is a perfect fit for my PC, what are the chances of it coming out for PC? Have you played Blades of Exile or Neverwinter Nights? In it you can make your own quests, and stories. Combined that with the features in Fable, and you'd have RPG gaming nirvana.

It does look great, shame it'll probably have a PAL release of summer 2004

If it does make it out in fall 2003, then Xbox will have a great Christmas season.

Xig, that's like asking if there's an actual point to GTA3

Obviously there's a story, and definaite goals, but previews usually highlight the gameplay and what you can actually do in the game as opposed to just telling us the story.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's going to have a story...

Anyway, so no one really knows when this'll happen??

Peter Molyneux does not give out release dates. He said Fable will be finished when it is finished. Molyneux will not rush the game and will try to make Fable as good as possible. Most people are guessing late 2003 or early 2004.
