Fable 2

Today at GDC it was announced that it will have online co op just like Gears of War. You can also choose to be a male or female.

* Choices, consequences. The innovative gameplay pioneered in the original “Fable” provided gamers with a never-before-seen level of immersion in a truly interactive world. “Fable 2” expands upon the scope and depth of the Xbox classic by adding incredible new features and creating a wider, more complex kingdom of limitless choices and consequences. Players will have the option to play as a man or woman, get married, have children, and live a life of their own design.

* A land far, far away. Revisit the sprawling world of Albion more than 500 years after the events of the original “Fable,” where you are free to explore the landscape and openly roam the countryside. For the right price every house, hut, dungeon and castle is for sale. Players can witness how the world grows and changes in response to their decisions in incredible and unique ways as they rediscover Albion as if for the first time.

* Fight with ease. “Fable 2” pioneers a new combat system designed to allow players to truly master hand weapons such as swords and maces, ranged combat weapons such as bows and guns, and an entirely new magic system. These three disciplines, while very accessible, are also amazingly deep, and allow players to mix combat styles and become everything from master swordsman to skilled ranger to evil magic welder, utilizing a single button on the Xbox 360 controller.

* A hero’s best friend. This groundbreaking addition to the game is integral to the theme of unconditional love in “Fable 2.” The canine companion will act as friend, compass and protector. Players must merely feed their pooch and he will love unconditionally, creating a bond that sets up emotion-filled journeys all throughout this magical world.

* Experience the world together. For the first time in the “Fable” series, gamers can experience the expansive and immersive world of “Fable 2” with friends, utilizing the new and exciting Dynamic Co-op Mode, bringing the long-awaited multiplayer function to the world of “Fable 2.”

* Xbox LIVE Arcade mini-games earn major cash. Carbonated Games has partnered with Lionhead Studios Ltd. to bring an unparalleled experience to gamers through Xbox LIVE Arcade. Gamers can start earning in-game currency for the “Fable 2” world later this year, before the game’s release to retail, by downloading and completing exclusive mini-games, which will be available for download on Xbox LIVE Arcade and allow gamers to purchase weapons, armor and more for their hero.

A few things...

-Unless they're free, the Live Arcade thing is retarded. I hate how the concept of downloadable content that was so cool on the original Xbox has slowly morphed into such a huge cash cow for Microsoft. Beautiful Katamari is a perfect example... great game, but they clearly saved half of the levels they'd developed for downloadable content when they were ready to roll the minute the game went to press. Cheap.

-The canine companion has the potential to either be kind of neat or ridiculously stupid. I can hardly wait for the moment I have to backtrack through half a dungeon because my dog got stuck running into a corner. AI in general isn't to the point that it's of any benefit to players in this kind of a role... call it the Natalya syndrome.

-Hopefully the battle system is tweaked enough so that a bargain-basement bow and arrow isn't the only weapon you'll ever need, like it was in the first.

-God, I hope it has the same sense of humor. I have many fond memories of the first Fable... the strongest being the moment I stood up in front of a classroom full of children, pumped a few pelvic thrusts into the air, and made every last one of them cry. So wrong, but so much fun. Autumn gave a flower to a little girl, who reluctantly took it, contemplated it, and said "... this is weiird..."

-It sucks that this couldn't make it to the original Xbox, where the plan was to allow you to use the same character you'd created in the first game... same levels, equipment, appearance, etc. Could've been really awesome.

I loved Fable, it was my favourite X-Box game, and I'm very tempted to finally get a 360 for this.

I always found it really difficult to go fully evil in the first game. no matter how much I convinced myself I wanted to be a bastard, I could. I just couldn't. I couldn't even bring myself to kill my sister and take the master sword thingy at the end.

OK, time for my random post of the day.

Has anyone worked out how to have sex with your wife or a hooker in the game?

Your wife will give you a hint that she's horny and you get the choice of giving her a thumbs up if you want to do it. Then you just go to sleep and listen to her talk about how good it was, or in my case that "now you've done it, I'm pregnant". I don't know about the hookers.

My wife and kid are both bugged. The wife is stuck in a table in a bar and can't move, and my kid just stands in the same spot staring at the wall.

Sorry, but I laughed upon reading that. :laugh:

Apparently it's a pretty big bug that's happened to a lot of people, and yes it's funny.
