i pre-ordered it and it should be arriving today OMFG
i need to get another 360 :(
what should i call my dog????
might have a browse of this site http://www.citizenlunchbox.com/famous/dogs.html as this is a very important decision
call it: "Sergeant-Major Jiggs"
I can't afford this until payday, which is tomorrow. It's not going to sell out in the shops, is it? I've got to get it in Newcastle on Sunday.
i only pre-ordered it because it was £2 more expensive and you get a load of rad stuff with it, including a medieval halo 3 master chief suit of armor. think ima call my dog Joe Bananas
I'm hoping to find it in somewhere I can use my girlfriend's student card to get a discount...
fulfilling some of promises molyneux made about fable I which weren't actually true. seems more fun than oblivion, also you have a dog
Edge gave it 9/10
I'd say that means it's going to be pretty fucking good.
seeing as the stuff they've given good reviews to, I've loved and I've disliked their bad reviews.
Having finally got past the bit I was stuck on, I can see why it got the 10/10 and the multiplayer mode is probably the best I've played in any game.
you can't expect them to ignore that just because you don't have it. Nor can you say a game is 'average' just because you can't play certain aspects of it.
I'm pretty good at darts though. Also, did it take anyone else ages to beat Roman at pool?
and have a crack at a GTA race, team deathmatch, mafia work, hangman's noose, cops and robbers and you'll see that it's far from an average game.
The 3rd game is anything but half-arsed; as a package, it's one of the most 'complete' experiences released this gen so far. The multiplayer is rock solid, the community stuff is excellent, and the singleplayer fixes all the mistakes of Halo 2.
The original Fable was pretty quirky though, as you said. The fenced areas are still there for the sequel. The reason you'd play it over (or why not as well as?) Oblivion, though, is that the first game squeezed a lot of fun into a pretty short main quest; it's not so much a grand-scale explorathon RPG as it is a rich, sandboxy little world that reacts to what you do in it.
Still, though, you might as well buy Fallout 3 instead, from the sound of it..
looking a bit ropey in my opinion...
but they're pretty deep games beyond the surface, gung-ho stuff. Mainly 1 & 3 (although the multiplayer in 2 is great). Having loads of enemy types is for Serious Sam; give me a couple of distinctive types working in different pack configurations any time. In 3, fighting a group of Brutes is a very different experience to a single one commanding an ordered pack of grunts and jackals. (The first game's Elites are still pretty much the best enemy in any game ever, but that's by the by.) Whack the difficulty up to legendary (there is no other way to play it) and they're two of the best games ever made, just because they force and encourage you to be brave (as much as you can in a game, anyway), smart and cunning.
The only real criticism of the multiplay I see there is that the weapons are unbalanced; I'd disagree, in that it's probably an (erk) sign of weaknesses in your game that you could work on. If you're losing out to Rifles too much, you're spending too much time in the open; shotguns/melees, too much time in close quarters unprepared; man cannon, get out of the vehicles. (Except the brute shot and pistols. which are rubbish, aye)
