#2 Posted by ZombieHunterOG (3530 posts) -

the thing about the fable games in general is that they never deliver on the promises that they make .... 


so i will wait for the review .... when ever that is 
#3 Posted by Gunner612 (4338 posts) -

Im hoping that they will jump back to the medieval times, the period for fable 2 was alright but i miss the awesome armor and swords in the first game.

Two dogs.

Less bugs and glitches!!!!!

#6 Posted by Brontes_Muse (187 posts) -

More cinematic dialog sequence.  (Like Mass Effect.)  I think it would make the comedy stick better.

More bloom.

#8 Posted by Gruff182 (875 posts) -

It on the bloody PC.
 Lionhead wouldn't even be making games now if it wasn't for their PC sales.

I just want Fable 3 to be longer than Fable 2 and maybe Fable 3 could be a little more difficult.

#12 Posted by REDRUN (1410 posts) -

more humping!

#13 Posted by WilliamRLBaker (4779 posts) -

hmmm well since fabld 2 is just fable 1 any ways and since they have pretty much that forumla right now they need to add in all that stuff they promised fable 1 would be....I would think since they have the game they have now down they could just reuse what they've learnt and then make the game they promised what 6 years ago now?

I basically want from Fable 3 what I wanted from Fable 2 which were things I wanted to improve from Fable 1 - be longer and more difficult.
Prior to it's release I heard that Fable 2 was more difficult and longer then Fable 1, but I'm pretty certain I got through the main story quicker in F2 then I did F1.
If they could make co-op not suck that too would be good.

Different pets and more ways to fight

More cowbell

#17 Posted by crunchUK (5963 posts) -

longer and more epic. IT was so ridiculously short for a £40 RPG

#18 Posted by ValkyrieGoddess (1922 posts) -

Better co-op.
No more damn bugs or glitches.
Maybe something that spans generations like you play as the parent then you play as the child.

#19 Posted by JoelTGM (5596 posts) -

meh, I had fun with Fable 1, Fable 2 was very good but still too short.  I'd rather see a new RPG game, instead of more fable.

#20 Posted by pause422 (6239 posts) -

I want there to not be a Fable 3. However that won't happen...and yes, I liked Fable 2 alot actually, just like Bioshock though, (not quite as much as bioshock, but still) I don't want there to be yet another sequel for it.

Agreed.
Well. Kinda. I mean, I'd probably be happier knowing that Lionshead have a steady job going, and Fable only helps in that respect, so I want there to be a Fable 3 but I don't want to play it. Ever.

Yah, it was way too short.
#23 Posted by FlipperDesert (2106 posts) -
Two dogs! Also, a satisfying ending. That spire crap was such a downer.
#24 Posted by Gnat (85 posts) -

more like fable 1

#25 Posted by Bellum (2944 posts) -

I really like the fable games. I like how Fable 2 improved on the original while not changing the premise too much. I have other games for huge epic open world RPGs, I think a more linear and condensed experience is refreshing sometimes. Most of my complaints with Fable 2 are actually technical. The 360 just can't handle it. Fable 3 needs to scale back, optimized more, or be optimized and released for the PC so I can take advantage of my superior hardware. ;)

#26 Posted by ahab88 (241 posts) -

I would like to see more loot. Maybe random drops from enemies. Armor and clothes that effect status other than your attractiveness. Perhaps a little more difficulty and a deeper combat system. Side quests with unique rewards other than gold and renown.

Peter Mollynoo is the worst game creator ever. He lies to our faces.

#28 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

What are some things he lied about in Fable 2?

Yes mister, everything that wasn't in the game, every flaw and every single thing he cut out because he wasn't a true genius.
#30 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

Good job not telling me anything.

#31 Posted by Computerplayer1 (991 posts) -

Everything that was promised for Fable 1 and 2 but never actually made it into the game.

In all seriousness though, Fable 2 was a pretty good game. I think they just need to tweak what they have now, and not try and go too overboard with the "innovations"

#32 Posted by Arc2010 (24 posts) -

A final boss fight.


Big, bad-ass, crazy, over the top armor like in Fable 1.

20 more hours of gameplay. At least.

Replace dog with mini map.

That about covers it for me. I don't care about bugs and technical crap too much, 'long as the game is playable.

Oh yes.

- Longer game

- More ways to expand on your character besides the three styles of combat (maybe, for example, acrobatics allowing some Assassin's Creed like scaling of buildings? )

- Combat doesn't need to be more complicated, but more context sensitive.  The original plan for Fable II was to have it be much more so.

- Satisfying story ALL the way through

- More meaningful NPCs

- Better co-op, maybe 3 or 4 player too

- Expand on everything else

#36 Posted by Aurelito (721 posts) -
  1. Magic Potency
  2. Health Bar
  3. DEATH
  4. Fucking effective upgrades
  5. Some D&D stuff
  6. Molyneux out of developer team.
#37 Posted by Snake_Eyes_Ex (30 posts) -

More animal companion types
Streamlined UI (and faster)
More weapon augmentation
Moral choices create different gameplay paths
Treasure with treasure maps and/or clues (find clues to locate treasure, item from treasure can give dog scent etc)
Slightly larger world
Greater variety of enemies
A more cohesive co-op experience
A ranked hero system that means something - offline meta game and hero rankings to compare with your friends, town crier and or posters tease how friends are doing
Upper body inertia to bend into turns - get rid of the stiff body on turns

#38 Posted by ZombieKitty (103 posts) -

The female not to look like a scary body building man when you upgrade physique. I mean the female face is jacked up w/ a lazy eye, but when you add that man body on top of it, it's freaking terrifying. Also I want to be able to completely free roam, eventhough they say your aren't restricted to paths, you sort of are in some way. I would like the dog to have some sort of powers.

I want the childhood stage to last longer, it was very short in both Fable and Fable 2.

for reals. I usually don't think games are too easy, but that was. AND it was short.
#41 Posted by Azteck (7449 posts) -

Wow, time to bring out all those complaints I had. I loved the game, but the potential was bigger than the final result.

Let's start with gameplay:

  • The combat system used in Fable 1, with usefull blocking.
  • Spells which actually does something.
  • An upgrade system like in Fable 1, where you notice a difference.
  • A real threat of dying instead of losing skill orbs
  • An improved multiplayer. Seriously, it was nothing like I thought it would be, I want to be able to import MY character from my own save and have the same level of interaction in the world as my co-player.
  • Drop the rag-doll effect.
  • Like stated above; armor with different levels of protection
  • Meaningful--

What's the point of a list, what I want is Fable 1 with multiplayer and current-gen graphics.
#42 Edited by Cerza (1653 posts) -

Less bugs and glitches. A practical inventory/menu system with a minimalist practical working HUD. Co-op that works, or else remove it, because not every bloody game today needs multiplayer. Remove the dog and golden trail of breadcrumbs and put the exploration and challenge back into the game. Either figure out a way to make the digging thing work, or get rid of it entirely. An ending would be nice too (preferably a positive one that answers all the questions the story raises), and an epic final boss battle. Ya know, all the things that Fable 2 SHOULD have had.

#43 Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw (6385 posts) -

Pizza vendors, a frozen mackerel for a weapon, and a final boss fight against Rip Torn's disembodied head.

Seriously, I want a deeper storyline with a much more polished conclusion and I'd like for easier-to-see spells and emote icons.  I had a hard time determining what the spell links were and what spells I was actually including, and all the action buttons on the bottom left hand part of the screen were nigh-unreadable.

Better Co-op
Better Story

#45 Posted by YoungDetective (93 posts) -
@BabyFart_McGeezaks: For Fable 1 he might have been a bit overzealous in the description superearly on, but the backlash was so huge on that that he didn't do any of that stuff for Fable 2. So, no, he didn't lie.

I would like less annoying half-assed British accents. Get British people or just talk normal, none of this school-adaptation-of-A-Christmas-Carol-stuff.

I liked the Spire part of the Spire part, just not the un-fight part of it.
#46 Posted by keyhunter (3207 posts) -

how about they put in all the stuff that was promised in Fable 1, and ever made it into fable 2.

#47 Posted by CoverlessTech (749 posts) -

I don't get what people mean when they say "all the stuff they promised"? What exactly? The ability to carve your name in a tree and see it when you're older? Personally I think Fable was one of the best games on the xbox, make Fable 3 more like Fable then Fable 2 and you are off to a good start.
