Long Wait Is Almost Over for Fable
several years of planning and development, numerous changes and
rumors of changes, and over a year with delayed release dates, Fable
is finally going gold. While many people have grown tired of
Fable and the hype that some led to rumors of disaster, this game
still promises to bring about some interesting innovations that have
never before graced the world of gaming.
for those who don't know, is an RPG for the XBox that promises to
give almost complete development control of your character to you,
the player. If you act kindly towards people, the world will learn
to praise you, and if you're evil in nature, the world shall shun
you. On top of that, you can select any type of weapon from a simple
stick, to a blade, to even a frying pan. Plus, as you perform tasks,
the method you utilize will effect your character's growth (physical
actions will make you buff, agile and dexterous feats will make you
thin and wiry, and if you think out problems you will end up a
balding fat mage-type). As you play, every possible decision is put
into your hands to handle as you deem best (imagine the good and
evil progression of KOTOR...now imagine that process having a total
bearing on the game and not just a minor one...now imagine it even
bigger than that...now we're almost there).
the lack of quality RPGs on the XBox, this game, which should arrive
in the next 3 weeks, will definitely help to fill the void with a
good mix of action, adventure, and RPG game play elements.
