Fable 2 Launch Day

Today is the day many, many gamers have been waiting for: it’s launch day for Fable 2. Lionhead Studio’s follow up to their disappointing yet still enjoyable Fable for the original Xbox, Fable 2 has been garnering some very respectable reviews.

For those of you who weren’t at a midnight launch event last night and haven’t been spending your early morning hours terrorizing the good citizens of Albion, you might be wondering what all the fuss is about. Check out this trailer:

Now, the first game made the same claim that your actions would change the in-game world to reflect your personality, and it did, to a certain degree. We’ll see how much Lionhead was able to do for Fable 2.

This was one of the big ticket games for this holiday season, but I was going to wait a bit to get it. The frothing reviews are making me want to go get it and play it, even though I haven’t finished Dead Space yet and I don’t really need another game to compete for my time, not with Fallout 3 coming out next week. Sometimes it hurts to be a gamer.

Anyone out there getting Fable 2?

  1. Most of the reviews I’ve seen seem to show it as an open-world game where the fun comes not from the main story/plot, but from interacting with the game world after that.  Sounds a bit odd, but who knows?

    My daughter has been hanging out for this title, but she’s finally come to accept that the XBOX 360 has a lousy quality control reputation. Therefore, like all the other games she’s played and finished, this one will have to wait for a PC port.

    (Her favourite games are Morrowind and Oblivion, by the way.)

    On that subject, I’m waiting for GTAIV PC myself.
