Now Playing - Fable Anniversary
Kevin and Tom relive the great adventure game Fable with the new HD release of Fable Anniversary.
by Erick Tay on
Teresa is both the sister from Fable 1 and the seer from Fable 2. Do you guys really play games? Or do you have your jobs just because you're a couple of Hollywood pretty-boys?
Now that I see how Tom plays games, I get why he always writes so awful reviews. He is so immature, and thinks that games should be like oscar-winning drama movies, with super realistic features and characters' conversations and no plot holes. Just rate the game based on its gameplay, story and technical features, no it's writer's work. Jesus...
Is there a review in progress? I have to say this really doesn't look like its worth the money. Playing the original on the 360 is always a great experience for me. It works fine, speeds up loading, and sharpens the resolution.
Good memory Tom. I asked Tom about the dead XBoxes a couple of weeks back on twitter as I've gone through 6 (dead ones) myself. Really just 5 dead, with the 6th one randomly red ringing (living dead?). Thankfully I don't play it much as I have a 7th one (a slim!) that seems to be stable (knock on wood!). Glad I saw this video with that stack in back. What's the saying, misery loves company, and it's nice to see I'm not the only one whose gone through multiple boxes.
Needless to say, I've PS4 this generation until XBox One makes that game I just 'gotta' have (hint - it will not be a FPS game).
I almost don't want to watch this. It'll spoil it when I play. It's nice when you haven't played a game in a long time and you actually forget parts of it. Then when you play again it's like, "Oh yeah I remember this. I love this part"
Ah Fable, the game whose name so aptly captured everything it truly was as it never lived up to an ounce of Peter Molyneux's claims. Harsh lesson learning Peter couldn't be trusted. Still bummed to this day.
Please people, stop criticizing the way Tom plays this particular game. If you actualy played and know the story of the team which developed this game, you would realise that Peter Molyneux and the rest of the team designed the game and the story in a way that it would permit players to play the game in multiple/more than one way(s). There is no right or wrong way to play this game. Every choice matters, it being right, wrong or inbetween.
I feel like a mentally handicapped child could play better then Tom was in the beginning of the video. Kevin is right, why would they let him on the TV to play this. I stopped watching this after a few mins because of how annoying Tom was being.
I find it surprising that there are still Fable gamers out there who are just now or have yet to make the connection that Theresa from Fable I is the same person as the blind oracle in Fable II & III. Either you aren't paying any attention to blantantly obvious plot details or it's time to go back to the basics & refresh your memory.
@coolbeans1 She also appears to guide you in Fable 3.
so he doesn't play it the way you play it or want him to play it so it's automatic hate? He can play it the way he want to play it..
@Jas0n94 If the game attempts to tell at story, the quality of said story should be taken into consideration for the review.
@snugglebear Chicken Chaser!
@valdarez How much do you play? I did have some issues with mine back in the red ring days but since they replaced it for me it has been perfect and has been strong for several years now.
I was thinking that if these guys at Gamespot are playing their consoles tonnes it will wear out quicker.
@themc_7 It's even better if you haven't played it at all. My copy is supposed to be in the mail today.
@valdarez It wasn't what was promised, but imo, it's still a really fun game. Brings me back to when I was young.
@Shadowdanc3r Oh that was a good one!
@Rage56 Same. Just annoying.
@kristinatanya I made the connection from the first moment I met her in Fable 2 pretty much. Blind woman that seems to know everything? Must be my know-it-all annoying blind sister from the first game.
@kristinatanyathey obviously arent true fable fans i go back and play fable atleast once or twice a year and fable 2 after if i dont have any other game cravings by then
fable 3 not so much as its a simplified borefest of a disasteroh and the characters look absolutely fugly in the remake
@Vidpci Yes...I have to get this as well. Broken or not, the game is fun :).
@Dannystaples14 @valdarezI've played a lot. I have around 500 XBox 360 games, gone through 10 controllers (and NO, I do not throw them, they have all had buttons fail on me), and a GamerScore of around 150k (haven't played much in about 1.5 years now though). The consoles definitely saw a lot of play time, but still, I've put other consoles through that much gameplay and never had an issue, most recently the PS2 for example and N64 before it.
I'm still excited to give this remake a go, but I kind of agree about the characters. Still, it does look great. As dorky as it sounds, I'm just glad I'll be able to go back and enjoy the game in true HD, earning achievements along the way. :)
@valdarez Yeah but the PS2 and N64 were basically solid state. There are no particularly complex or really moving parts in them except the disk tray. That was why the old consoles were so reliable. My PS1 is still going strong to this day.
If you increase the power and the components you increase their chance to fail.
I mean even a PC will have components die sooner or later and more often than not it is the fans or the hard drives which give out first because they are the ones that are wearing down through movement.
Start putting CPUs in them that actually get hot and GPUs that have enough power to also get hot and the strain you start to put on them through heat alone goes through the roof.
@themc_7 @valdarezTotally understand. I'm old enough that I remember, and enjoyed ET on the original Atari, when now if you read on it they claim it was the worst game of all time. My friends and I all played/enjoyed it. There was a problem understanding 'how' to play, but once you showed someone what to do, they usually enjoyed it.
