Feature: Back to Albion

The lessons Of Fable and what we want from a sequel

According to the rumour-mills, we may be due another Fable in the world of Albion. A Fable 4, if you will. It's easy to shrug that off as no big deal. Fable is arguably the series most talked about for what it doesn't do rather than what it pulls off, not helped by the PT Barnum level overpromises of a certain Mr P. Molyneux. Plant…

Feature: A Good Year For Open Worlds

Is 2011 The Year Of Game World Exploration?

This year has been unusually rich in the kind of game that I most enjoy: those that are open-ended, or provide a sandbox world for me to mess about in. We usually get a couple of these every year, but in 2011 we seem to have run into a minor bounty of the open stuff, which is good news for explorers and meanderers alike. I've…

Fable III PC review

After having been out on Xbox 360 for approximately 48 years, the PC version of Fable III arrived today. A roleplaying game designed primarily for people who don't live and breathe roleplaying games, Lionhead's game has charm in its blood and a tale of revolutionary heroism to shout about. Reception on console was mixed, but improvements and upgrades are promised for the PC version. Did…

Thing Of Legend: Fable III’s Platform Choices

Sooo, here's a thing (not of legend, but of PC gaming distribution news): Microsoft have decided to ship Fable III simulataneously on Steam and Games For Windows Marketplace. That says something about who is boss in the digital download market, I think. There are even bonus things for both: preorder via Games for Windows Marketplace and you receive Fable: Lost Chapters for nowt, and if…

Late Arrival: Hands-on with Fable III PC

It’s ok: there is a cursor on the menu screen. The PC isn’t being treated like the ugly stepson who’s only allowed a bowl of water and a rotten banana for dinner this time. Fable III’s conversion to personal computer may be a few months late, but that’s not because someone fell asleep and forgot to press the ‘Insta-Port!’ button. Lionhead have done this properly.

Both Feet On The Crowned: Fable 3 In May

Xbox Live mouthpiece and all-around inoffensive man Major Nelson has word on the release date of the PC version of Fable 3 in his latest infodump. Americans will be getting the rebellion & kingdom management-driven third instalment of the series on May 17th. On the one hand, it's coming to us 7 months late. On the other hand, we'll get 3D support and a new,…

Nothing At All Announced About Fable 3

God, here's some news to rival yesterday's some manner of Mass Effect 2 DLC is coming at some point story. Lionhead Studios have tweeted that they can't currently reveal anything about the PC version of Fable 3, which had previously been scheduled for December, but they hope that they will be able to "spill the beans" soon. You'd better believe that when Lionhead finally does…

Fable 3 PC Missing, Presumed Dead Coming

So the Xboxers and Xboxettes are currently enjoying Fable 3. Where's our PC version, eh? In a tweet today Lionhead Studios announced that "Fable 3 PC Version is still in development here at Lionhead so PC GAMERS don't panic. We'll announce details when we're ready to do so." You hear that? Don't panic! Stop panicking! It's worth remembering that back in May, Lionhead also mentioned…

Games For Windows Lives

Some people have wondered why we're yet to write about Microsoft's recently-announced relaunch of Games For Windows. I wondered too, and eventually settled on it being something to do with just how tainted that name is now. After all these years of confusing marketing and frustrating attempts to regulate multiplayer, so many PC gaming brains either skip right over it or focus into some manner…

Hurrah/Bah: Fable III Grumblenews

Yesterday revealed that Fable III has a web-based Villager Maker, which allows you, yes YOU, to design villagers that could find their way into the full game. What a clever idea. (And saving someone some work, I should think...) However, if you're planning to play the game on PC then you will be waiting an indeterminate amount of time longer to see said villagers, due…

Develop 10: Molyneux On Fable III

The Fable 3 demonstration starts a little late, due to Peter Molyneux being a little too reliant on his SatNav. Which is the sort of thing which strikes me as a workable critique of the “bread-crumb” hand-holding in Fable 2, but we're probably denying the existence of that non-PC Game. Which is going to make writing about the first public European showing of Fable III,…

Fable III Features Magic, Cannons

The trailers must flow! E3 continues to disgorge the sticky contents of its hype gland all over the internet, and that includes the Fable 3 trailer. For some reason this reminds of that period of third-person action games that appeared in the time just after the first two Tomb Raider games. You know the ones, they all scored about 70% in PlayStation magazines, and were…

Fable III To Reach PC?

Rumours are afoot that Fable III may be making its way to the PC. During Lionhead head Peter Molyneux's GDC chat with Gamespot yesterday, he referred to "platforms" for the new game in the plural, and that doesn't really leave a lot of options. The Microsoft-owned developer is not particularly likely to aid their competition with a PS3 or Wii version (although you'd have to…
