A Myth No Longer: Fable Anniversary Coming To PC

More Fable 1 on PC. Because... reasons?

Did you know there was tremendous demand for a PC version of Fable Anniversary? Did you know there was a Fable Anniversary? I must confess that I did not. Apparently, though, it's a remastered version of Fable: The Firstening with better graphics, sound, and all that jazz (note: jazz not included). It came to Xbox 360 earlier this year, and now it's apparently headed to Steam too. Hurrah?

I mean, don't get me wrong: I liked the first Fable quite well way, way, way back when it first came out. It wasn't even close to being everything Peter Molyneux gushingly acornpromised it would be, but it was a solid action-RPG in its own right. Thing is, PC already has Fable: The Lost Chapters, which is the first Fable with minor improvements. I'm sure Anniversary will look and sound a little better, but forgive me for not leaping out of my seat and kung-fu kicking a chicken in mid-air.

Oh well, though. It's something. At least Microsoft is releasing PC games again - or re-releasing them, really, as they have here and with Rise of Nations: Extended Edition. It's a baby step, sure, but that's pretty damn impressive when the baby previously had no legs.

Microsoft hasn't given Fable (Technically Closer To The) Anniversary (Which Is In September) a release date, but if I had to guess I'd put money on us hearing something during E3. Right now it's still The Teasing Season, but soon. Soooooooon.
