Introducting noxious bodily odours, rubbery blubber and heads on sticks

"Ogres are born as twins. When they reach puberty these twins will wrestle to the death, the loser ending up as a head on a stick (commonly called a Noggin) that the surviving ogre uses as a weapon. For reasons that are still to be fully understood, these heads remain alive and capable of conversation, well, as capable as an ogre that is. It has also been noted that it is difficult to tell the gender of an Ogre just by looking at it, as females of the species are just as warty, uncouth and odorous as their male counterparts."

"Due to their very thick hides, Ogres are extremely hard to vanquish," writes Lionhead in a new blog post introducing the character. "Heroes tell tales of swords barely making a dent in the rubbery blubber, and arrows bouncing off warty behinds. However, Legend has it that this stinky behemoth has an Achilles heel, on its ...perhaps the less said about where the better."

"As if their natural coriaceousness was not armour enough, Ogres will loot the bodies of fallen heroes for bits of armour and shields. Forcing their enormous girth into greaves and ailettes, and using bucklers to protect their squashy hind quarters (adventurers take note of the soft spot)."

"Ogres join Red Caps in the list of confirmed Fable Legends enemies, alongside the player-controlled villain. What do you make of him?"

seems to be progressing into something nice...

I do. Bought Fable Anniversary - which showed off what I love and what I dislike about the Fable series. The characters, the setting, and the world are all brilliant but it is the gameplay that Fable, Fable 2 and Fable 3 all failed to deliver on.

Fable Legends is one of my most anticipated games (up there behind Destiny)... maybe they'll make some good gameplay this time around though.

Gamers? It may not even be utterly close the best RPG like game. It is fun for me?

Also many gamers.

Now with molyneux gone hopefully we'll get a Fable game that doesn't try and cater to every age group imaginable.

Still, I enjoyed all the Fables, even 3 so I'm looking forward to this.

fable is complete trash and i mean COMPLETE trash. it always gets hyped up by the devs and then fails to deliver, fable 2 i got bored off after playing 2 hours, couldnt take it any more and fable 3 i downloaded for free a while ago from xbl and played it till the part where u escape the city through a tunnel or something. its just so damn boring.

If you follow hype. I could imagine you're disappointed a lot. Trash?

No.. Superman 64 is trash.

Every mans trash is another mans treasure?

Molyneux-free Fable game? Instant sign up.

#17 Edited by LadyBlue (3929 posts) -

Is it using a new engine? That could breath life into the series.

Need to order the remake.

The ending was so weak in 3. Make me fight something maybe?

Have a lot of interest in this game, it was rumored by GAF that it's a Gauntlet style 4 player game so I'm interested how the gameplay turns out.

I'm a huge Fable fan, played the hell out of 1-3 so I'm really excited for this. Since Peter Molyneux (creative director) is no longer working on the series we can expect a huge change in direction for this. As much as I love the other Fable games, I'm not ignorant to their flaws. They had plenty of issues, but the charm of the world and the co-op kept me returning. Fable Legends is running on the new Unreal Engine 4, has a new direction, and introduces 4 player co-op and a PvP element. It has lots of potential, but a lot of Sony fans will ignore that because it's easy to hate a game you can't play any way. Either regret your console purchase, or hate a game, hating is the easy way.

I know. Its like they couldn't figure out something to build and make you fight. Other than that there were parts I liked, but it was a drop from fable 2 no doubt. Still I always dig the games charm and dialogue.

Fable - Peter = no thanks

I like Fable. Three was bad but I still got some enjoyment out of it, enough to play through the whole game. I'm looking forward to seeing what Legends brings.

Don't bet on it. There's way to much to be shown at the E3. The franchise is no where as shitting as a few others I know.

That's no rumor - Fable Legends is a co-op oriented game, with up to four player co-op.

It would be awesome as hell if Michael Gambon was the narrator in Legends.

Introducing a enemy that's been in every Fable game? I don't have high hopes for this game so i hope it blows me away.

Never played a single Fable game.

Must not be a real gamer ;p
