    I hope this game ends up being great. It looks completely terrible though. Fable 1 will likely remain the best entry in the series.

    ...That may have been a little harsh. What I should have said is that this will probably be a fine game, but it will likely be a terrible Fable game. Especially when compared to Fable 1: the lost chapters.

    I thought this was more of a spin-off rather than a typical Fable game/sequel. Unless I'm mistaken that is. Personally if it really is a multi-player only game, I wouldn't mind it IF they sold it at like $40. Though if they added enough content I probably wouldn't mind paying full price. I like the concept so I'm willing to wait and see where it goes :)

    Yeah it's practically a spin-off. That's one of the reasons why I'm disappointed, I like the original Fable. The reasons why Fable 2 wasn't as well received by fans are obvious when you compare it to the original. But instead of learning from the criticisms people had of Fable 2, Fable 3 was different to the other two games in ways nobody asked for. After that, Lionhead gave up entirely and made a garbage kinect game. I'm annoyed that the Fable name and universe probably wont be used for another game that resembles the original you know?

    Yeah I hear you there. I still standby that if Fable 2 + 3 would have been the same game, it would've been much more well received. Just delay it a bit and push for a bigger and better game (Since if I recall right, Fable 3 came out not too long after fable 2). I can't say anything for the Kinect game as I've never played it, but I like to think these little spin off games are more for drumming up interest in the IP. Get some non-fable fans interested in the world and it's characters. Still all that said, I do want another Fable (4?). But if they want to take a break from the traditional Fable games to try out some new ideas, I'm alright with that. As a indie game dev myself I know that taking a break from one idea for some time can often let you return with a fresh take/view on things that can be very beneficial when you find yourself lacking what you need to get things going again in a positive direction. So yeah I'm sure they'll get back to the original setup sometime soon, so don't give up hope just yet :)
