Hm so Peter lied again! Saying this guy was new to the team and rebuild the combat from the ground up, what a great bull***ter. The guy really knows how to sell his product.

We sit down with Joshua Atkins, lead game designer of Fable III, and talk combat.
@MOnsOOn_dk I laughed pretty hard too. The fact he held his hand up and sang "AWWW!!!" made the whole video worth watching. LOL
All I want to do is swing my sword, decapitating an enemy, switching fluidly to my pistol(Jenny.) and shoot someone else as I shock another person with my other hand. Is that so much to ask?
If you hated Fable 2 then I can see how you would hate 3 so dont bother posting because its pretty redundant. If you hated Fable 1&2 then why are you even bothering?
In My Opinion This Is A Great Idea, I Love The Idea Of Morphing As It Represents The Fable Series...Angelic Or Demonish...Ranged Or Close Combat...Famous Or Unknown. These Sort Of Thinks Are What Fable Is. These Things Are Epic. And I Know Some People Are Moaning Because You Will START with The Choice Of Four weapons..Likely To Be Sword, Hammer,Axe And Mace But You Will Probably Have The Choice To Buy New Weapons Such As Katanas Like In Fable II (My Evidence Is That In The LCE You Recieve A Code For A New Weapon..Its Kindaa Obvious There Going To Make Weapons To Buy Later On It The Story...
Cool idea with the weapons! Im loving the graphics, soooo nice to have artistic style instead of the realalistic look every other game is going with!
Alright, I've read quite a few comments on Fable 3. One, we need to stop comparing it to other games like Oblivion and Fall Out. They had their moment. It would be the same as anyone trying to compare Call of Duty against Borderlands. Two different ideas, no where near the same type of game. Secondly I would like to state that they have made mention of revamping the magic system as well as the combat system. Yeah the one in Fable 2 it was hit and miss. They're trying to make it more touch sensitive. For example, the harder you push your attack button the heavier your hits become. Also they're working on incorporating dual attacks. Shooting one enemy and blocking another with your blade. Will they pull it off? I haven't a clue. As far as the weapon morphing goes, I think it's a fairly neat idea. Chances are, it's not going to be as dramatic as everyone is making it out to be. For example, after killing hundreds of hollow men and getting your weapon to look like it's made out of bones, I really don't think that killing a few hobbes will alter it's look one bit. Seems to me that it'll be something you need to work with.
I loved Fable 2 and can't wait for this one. There were so many new fixes here and there from the 1st and 2nd that it really made the game worth while.
I still feel that Fable one was the best out of 1 and 2, mainly because of the look of the armor and weapons in Fable 1. I liked having a choice of different armors, being a holy knight, or wearing the same knight armor but being full black, or silver. They should re-use the big armor in the game, i loved looking like a Legend, instead of a guy who was in rags like what i saw from Fable 2.
Needs to finally give us an open world. Modable on PC. More weapon variety, I want a fookin spear. Good multiplayer cause fable 2 had awful multiplayer.... Oh and chainswords. Chainswords make everything better. Vroom vroom. x3
Frankly this series pales in comparison to both ES4: Oblivion & Fallout 3 even the graphics look seriously out dated it's like they're trying to program this game for the G1 XBox. That jab about "not needing 200 swords" is pointed at Dead Rising 2 which has roughly 200 different weapons a player can find or build and looks way better than Fable 3.
I used the time magic for the first tap. Makes you feel ridiculously cool. You teleport round behind everyone, slash 'em then move onto the next guy.
when i fisrt played Fable one wow i mean it was something reallly different.when i played fable two i felt it was a bit short but there was still more actions and things to be found.hopefully fable 3 has even more things and starting with this weapon morphing i already feel its going to be something different.
All about Power..right so it sounds like they are going to make playing this game even more effortless then the second one.
or better yet they could let us use the natal or the controller in case u just want to relax and play
Looks cool but i hope they use the natal instead of the controller. i want to decapitate a guy pretending im using a sword.
DUMB, instead of giving them a variety of weapons lets just give them a couple that "morph". Hes right, they don't REALLY want to make 200 different weapons, that would require more graphic design, work, and $$! Too bad no one will kill hobbes the entire game to make their weapon look a certain way, especially when it'll only morph again when you start killing something else in the story. This game will be the same as the others, you'll be given the illusion of choice and wind up with either a halo or horns on your head (though this time it looks like you get angel/demon wings too HOW AWESOME... not). This game started out as Peter's awesome dream and ended up another streamlined game with the illusion of making the experience "unique" for everyone, AKA Bad/Good, Black/White. Black and White is boring.
I loved the first two. I have high hopes for Fable 3, especially after hearing about the new combat.
i have only played fable 2 and i can't say it was on of my favorite games but it was really good and i spent a lot of time on it. i have high hopes for fable 3
@xXcloud99Xx , Any FPS shooter you play will have both those things. BF BC 2 is full of sniping and vehicle campers, doesn't mean its a bad game! @LeMarfanz, im just curious to know what games you play is all.
Idk why people dump on Fable so much sure Fable 2 didn't live up to expectations but sometimes through failure comes perfection, in other words, I think Fable 3 will be awsome.
I thought Fable 2 was awesome.. this looks even better.. and I already have several games I'm gonna be getting. excellent 1st quarter
i loved the last 2 games, but they got overhyped and half of what they said would be in them got warped or where left out altogether, so dont hold your breath for these new things.... just wait till the game comes out to judge it (like all games) lets not forget, peter molyneux is one of the biggest S@*t talkers of all time.... :-) also @jokethis21 COD MW2 sucked.... full of nothing but campers and complianers
Can't wait to play this. The weapon morphing feature sounds like it could be a good idea but it all depends on how it performs.
i played the first fable:the lost chapters and it was really good but i didnt like the combat at all too messy and the story was kinda all over the place. i still need to get fable 2 and finish it before 3 so after reading these comments i hope its better thank i think.
I've always liked Fable 2 for the fact you can change the way your player looks just by the actions you take and now the weapons evolve in the new one coming up that's kind of the high point of it for me.
Whenever anything is called "The Best thing ever" there are going to be just as many people saying it's overrated. How about we just forget about calling games the best games ever? I think Final Fantasy 12 was great, for example, but not everyone thinks so, in fact I know I'm in the minority. In other words... stop trolling.
@onewithtoenail7 I agree with what your saying to an extent. What would be nice is if they would add a system where you could lock a specific aspect of your character once you get it the way you like it. That way they can keep the free character evolution yet you could lock in aspects of your character you like to keep them from being altered. In this way they could kind of get the best of both worlds. They should do the same with the sword, maybe let the attributes continue to improve but allow the player to lock its appearance into place once they get it to look the way they like it.
@LeMarfanz , MW 2 was and is not overrated.... It has the most players online on PS3 AND Xbox 360... Thats not overrated...
@Mysterieux936 that's not true at all, games get overrated all the time! Cod MW2 is overrated, so was chrono trigger.
