Fable 2 Woes. A Rambling Tale of Tragedy (some minor spoilers)

Posted by LoganHallfin (49 posts) -

Ugh I am having a hell of a time enjoying the last bit of Fable 2 before Im done with it.   

First off I guess I should say I have two characters, Good+Pure and Evil+Corrupt (GP,EC), GP has finished the main game and EC is a bit before the final few quests. 
 
If I remember correctly I had just finished a kidnapping quest and needed to go to bed IRL saved and quit from Fairfax Gardens, console off.  Well starting off today first thing my wife divorced me and left with my child, so much for wife number three. Its her loss really since I was just about to go for the mave love 25 times ach.  Honestly I dont know what I did to piss her off so bad, I tried several times to catch her as she was leaving and turn her feelings around, no luck. Tried reloading of course, no luck. I killed her once but didnt save.  
 
So, fine! Im single again. More backround... Even tho this is GP I did kill my first wife... because she gave me an STD.  I sappose it is hyper accurate that you could actually marry someone and then have sex trying to make a baby and actually get an STD but... ugh. Second wife was killed by someone else, and now Third wife left. Total count 3 wives and 5 children all gone one way or another.  
 
Now on EC he has 2 wives (at the same time) and 3 children, sleeps with prostitues (in multiples) frequently, and has of course never had any sort of problem with divorce or STDs. 
 
Giving up on women with GP I thought I'd try to get the Demon Door Achievment with 4 remaining doors.  *Minor Spoilers* One door requires an audience so I grabbed 10 followers and dropped into wraithmarsh with a little bit of lag while loading the area 2 of my followers were killed by Banshee children. Back to town to try again I thought I picked up 2 more followers, headed back, quickly killed the banshee and headed to the door. The demon was not pleased and as I counted my followers neither was I for I only had 9. Back to town again and back out again, Banshee again. Sucess finally. Next up I tackled the embarassing door which went easy just required some shopping and some loading screens.  After that I headed to the acting door only to be dissaponted after several minutes to find out that I still didnt have the worship expression. Back to town, none on sale, none in the shelves. Ugh.  
 
The only other door for GP to try would of been the corruption door, no problem I'll just set some houses rent to max and sleep a bit and poof. No good since I own pretty much every building with GP at -40% or -50% I would have to walk around and change all of them to get corrupted. Damn damn damn.  
 
 A thought hit me and I rashly quit without saving over to my other character EC. "I'll just open all the doors with him!" , actually did get one achivment for all expressions, tricks and abilites (yay!). Went to the acting door and nope no good, Scary Laugh does not double as Laugh.  Fine I'll just do the dirty deeds with GP, quit with save and hopped back over... now loading Fairfax Gardens... Oh no. Yes thats right the game had not saved my divorce or the time it took to open two doors and stumble around. However my wife and child were right there to leave me all over again. Console off. 
 
What a great day in Fable 2.
