Fan-made Fable Anniversary achievement revealed

"Are you not entertained!?" the top vote-getter with 1,585 votes; awarded when players complete all eight rounds of the arena without taking a break.

Lionhead Studios has revealed the winning fan-made achievement in the recently concluded Fable Anniversary contest.

With 1,585 votes, user Khaos Archangel's achievement--"Are you not entertained!?"--was deemed winner and will appear in this fall's Fable Anniversary.

The achievement is awarded when players complete all eight rounds of the arena without taking a break.

The four runner-ups were "Farticus," "…Not as I do," "Filet Minion," and "Jack of All Blades." Check out the post on the Lionhead Studios website for more.

Fable Anniversary launches later this year only on the Xbox 360; a PC version is not in the works. The package includes the 2004 original role-playing game and its Lost Chapters expansion.

The game will have an entirely new lighting system, powered by the Unreal engine, as well as all-new character models, textures, materials, and new facial and cutscene animations. It will also feature widescreen support and remastered audio for surround sound setups.

All content found in Fable and its Lost Chapters expansion will be included in Fable Anniversary, though Lionhead said no additional quests or content will be added to the new version.

I don't see that as a legit achievable. I do this every time I play the game.

I wonder if they've changed anything, example inventory or buying and selling... this game had a lot of exploitable things. I remember there was a way to make millions of dollars in a very short time

Oh boy, fond memories of playing this as a teenager. I'm really excited to play this again!

How much Gamerscore is the achievement?

I'm playing Fable III again right now. Brilliant series. Love the artwork, humour, and gameplay in all three. Can't wait to play the anniversary edition.

I swear this is like asking your customers to design a unique flavor of cereal, and then choosing bran flakes as the winner.

Why not Farticus?

"Are you not entertained!?", this might be the reflection of voters' opinion toward the game.

Stupid not to do a PC version with controller support all because MS don't want it to take away the glory from the 360 what happened to MS supporting PC gaming what happened to that

Is Fable even relevant anymore? I'm pretty sure the franchise died with Fable 3.

This is literally the most complained about type of achievement. How the hell did it win? Troll vote?

This Achievement is not challenging or interesting. They just amused by the reference of Gladiator's famous quote.


Bad choice.

Fable 1 is clearly the best Fable made, so why we never got a "True" sequel to it is beyond me.

Wow a Gladiator reference those are fresh, almost as fresh as the username "Khaos Archangel"

The only way I'm buying it at all is if there is a PC version. I don't mind there being a 360 version. I just don't like how they are excluding the other fans who prefer playing on the PC than the 360. Besides, I liked having the ability to have mods for the original game after playing the first time through to add to the experience.

I played 1 and 3. 3 was terrible compared to fable 1. It was a stupified button masher

Come on; do something with Black & White!! That franchise has so much goin for it (besides the second one), it doesn't have to be only on PC

The atmosphere and soundtrack were something else and especially back in 2004.  This is a Day 1 buy for me.

That achievement is about as lame as all the promises that Peter M. made and then broke.

Mine was better.

"Beam me Up, Weaver"

Teleport to every location in the game at least once.


How is that not awesome?

@koospetoors I agree. The Farticus is a bit better but I really like the Weapon 1. At least you wouldn't have to be online to trade stuff for them.

Because bathroom humor stops being funny once you've beyond, oh, I'd say about 1st grade.

Are you even relevant anymore. In fact were you ever relevant.

Based on your comments I wouldn't hesitate to say 'no'.

@Slade968 This is a remake of the original game which was actually really good. It's good for fans of the series and people who have never played it because the original is so old now.

No one said it had to be challenging. It was an open contest for people to submit achievement ideas of any sort for our enjoyment and entertainment.

It may not have been challenging but it was interesting AND amusing enough to win the votes.

Agreed; why they chose something completely unoriginal is beyond me.  Though I guess I should have expected this considering the fact that Fable has been garbage since Fable 3.

@ziproy I *seriously* don't see it playing well outside of the PC. You'd need some real good controls to play that game. Maybe something like the Wii U touchscreen controller would work though.

@Dasim64 @Slade968 Fair enough. I haven't played the original since I had it on the first Xbox and it was an awesome game. Shame how much the series declined and that they stopped supporting PC.

@AncientDozer @tandukbadak  

I know. But we're talking about achievement made by fans. I was hoping the achievement would be satisfying to get. Something challenging, interesting, or tricky (but not frustrating). That's why I'm disappointed by how simple it is.

@ddoggbritt16 @Dasim64 You had to be there. Too many to list here. He has a really bad habit of holding conferences before the games are released and telling about all the wonderful things that will be in the game and when it comes out none of it is true. It's not even a watered down version, it's just not there at all. And when he says it will be there it's not like he's saying it's something they're working on that may or may not be there. He says it like it's for real. Everyone gets their hopes up only to find out he was lying. I fell for it on Fable 2. After that I never listened to him any more.

@ddoggbritt16 @Fartman7998 I didn't think so.  I mean, you can only teleport by default to places with a Cullis Gate.  In order to teleport everywhere, you'd need to go there first and use the recall system to physically teleport there
