Fable 2 free on XBLM?

#201 Posted by Rxanadu (504 posts) -

You think it would work if I just download Episode 1 right now?

#202 Edited by Coombs (3449 posts) -

Chapter 1 is free, 
 
Then you have to pay for each chapter as you go, 
 
The first chapter is rather long though, So enjoy what you can.

No, it was the full game. You can't get it anymore though. I downloaded it and loaded a save from when I had beaten the game and everything was open to me. It wasn't just episode 1.

@Coombs:  You can't download Chapter 1 anymore. The download itself (from either that Marketplace link in the OP or from your Download History) was replaced (probably by accident) with the full copy of Fable II. The download is 7 gigs (As opposed to the 2-3 gig download for Chapter 1) and has the same name, description, rating, and release date as the $20 full game.
 
It's a goof on Microsoft's part.

Actually it was indeed the full game. Free. Had to follow the link to the web page to get it.

Also... Why so much rage over this? Seriously man, that's a whoole lotta rage over nothing.

Yeah Afroman. Why you ragin like that? You cussed a total of two times and capitalized the focal point. Oh wait, that was me.
 
Doctor, you don't even know what rage is.

It is the full game so now I can sell my original game :P

Is this game chugging for anyone else? It seems at certain points the framerate takes a bit of a dive

Were achievements available in the Episode 1 thing? Because I downloaded the 7GB download (which was incredibly difficult to do, because I only have a 12GB HDD) and I'm getting achievements.

Well you are raging...for no reason, beings as you're wrong and they did indeed put the full version up for free, not episode 1.

100% positive that the full game of Fable 2 WAS put up on XBL only available from adding to a queue from your computer. I DLed it last night having never had a Fable 2 disc anywhere near my 360 ever and as I am writing this my girlfriend is playing the fuck out of Fable 2. Great game and free to boot!

So does it no longer work? Or...?

#214 Posted by Tomkang (251 posts) -

It is in my dl queue, but hasn't started yet. (Damn you ME2 dlc and slow internet) will it still download full game?

A few hours ago I was able to get the 7GB download of Fable II  by checking in my download history for episode 1 of Fable II.

What? I am calm. I didn't know telling somebody who is set on saying that this is episode 1, is wrong = raging.

@CL60: See? It's annoying when people tell you you're experiencing an emotion that you're not. My short rant was hardly rage.

Yes, as long as you claimed it you should be good to go.

Very legit.  Earlier, at least.  Much much earlier.

Thanks 
 
Heard it was a good game, never got it because I have a heap of old games to play (So many JRPG's!)

The story has made it on kotaku. I think it was a mistake but Microsoft will pretend and say it a promotional tactic.

That's a total nonsequitur. Caps for emphasis is not yelling. Try again.

I also noticed that it's free yesterday. Thing is. I don't have an Xbox360 :|

#228 Posted by quinistheman (150 posts) -

If it were to be episodic, when would it ask you to buy the next episode? I didn't install the update and I'm still hoping that it's the full game.

#229 Posted by quinistheman (150 posts) -

From what I've seen the first episode is just the childhood portion. I've already done the first mission with Hammer. Sounds like it's the full game to me.
