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…

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…

‘Tis True: Fable 3 Officially Confirmed For PC

Lionhead have confirmed on their website that Fable 3 is indeed destined for PC. Which is interesting, given previous form (there's no Fable 2 on our beloved box). Lionhead say: " The Windows version will retail for $49.99/£39.99/€54.99, and will also be available for download exclusively on Games on Demand on Games for Windows – LIVE." More details about the special edition through the link.…

Gobbets! Fable 3 On PC

Ready? I'm going to spam at you, right at your face. A few quickfire news stories we didn't manage to cover during the week, just so you fine fellows and fellowettes have a place to discuss them. The ever-pleasingly erudite RPS comments threads are (for the most part - can the more regular bickerers please relax?) one of the shining jewels of this here website,…

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…

Peter Molyneux In Bold Claim Shocker

VG247 have been talking to shy and reclusive game developer Peter Molyneux about Lionhead's ambitions. They want to tell the greatest story ever. The developer said: “The greatest story ever told? I think it’s going to be in a computer game. And I think that if I play the greatest story ever told in the same game as you play it, your greatest story is…

Retro: Fable

Lionhead aren’t good with interfaces. Black & White’s wavy-hieroglyph spellcasting is infamous, of course, and I spent a little too much of the Christmas just gone swearing at the agony of magic selection and food-eating in Fable 2. Revisiting Fable the first though, the sequel comparative;y seems like a masterclass in elegant menu-making. This action-RPG’s wheezing, long-winded inventories, quest logs and maps are what you’d…

Syndiiicate

(I'll stop it with the iiis now). Yes, a third Syndicate game has been raised as a possibility. Happy! Happy! Happy! That said, the raising was done by one P. Molyneux, the man whose picture appears next to The Big Book Of Hackneyed Phrases & Sayings' entry for "pinch of salt." Here's what he told Shacknews: "I really would love to redo a version of…

Chicken-Chaser

As an alternative to their usual marketing strategy of making design promises they can't possibly keep, Lionhead have come up with a new way of exciting fans - asking them to hurl abuse. Specifically, to think up a new insult to be proferred by NPCs who've taken a dislike to your character in Fable 2, replacing the outgoing 'Arseface'. The rules? Simple: "Puerile, but not…
