What the bloody hell is this?

That has to be one of the most ridiculous things I've heard all day. I have to call up and downgrade the pre-order tomorrow. That's annoying as hell. I actually don't know whether or not I'll keep it Limited. It's a hard debate.

And honestly, I try to have confidence in this game, but I was disappointed fuck-all with the co-op being left out for a week (not because I wanted to play out of the box, but for reasons of principle). Now this happens, and I wonder what else we think is included by default will be taken out idiotically. I don't know what's going to happen.

Jayge, it's Molyneux. What the hell did you expect?

Dang, that sucks, that looked like a really good limited edition set too.

The real question is, why the fuck did you actually preorder a limited edition of an game ever? It's the same game, with like 10 bucks worth of art sold to you for 120 bucks.
#7 Posted by ManMadeGod (1559 posts) -

I have the LE on pre-order as well.

The question is do I think some armor and an extra dungeon are worth $10 and sadly the answer to that question is yes :(

...I just don't think "I told you so" does this justice at the moment.

lol i see no problem so they weren't able to fullfill the promise you should be more glad they actually admitted it and didn't go off and just release it so people can be like WHAT THE FUCK on release day. which has happend with game companies before.

There's... quite a large problem with them not being able to fulfill such a promise.

Wow, only Molyneux can over hype a pre-order package and not deliver. That really blows for people who pre-ordered this.

#12 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

I canceled my pre-order over this. I have never seen anything this ridiculous before today. They take out online co-op for the launch and now this...I'll be picking it up later, cheap and used.

Shit, dood.  Then you ain't gonna like this:
http://www.bingegamer.net/2008/molyneux-there-are-low-spots-in-fable-ii/

BURN DOWN ALL THE HOUSES!!!  RUN FOR THE HILLS!!!  THE APOCALYPSE IS DRAWING NIGH!!!

I'm just waiting for Molyneux to say:  "the game is cancelled because I can't make up my fucking mind".  LOLOL

I say to Molyneux:

EAT A DICK!!!

#22 Posted by Vinchenzo (6192 posts) -

I usually only like the bonus DVDs, but lately I've been on the fence about even buying Fable II anymore. I'd rather get Scene-It 2... am I weird? :(

I've read that actually. One of the only honest-sounding things out of the Molynator's mouth in the past 4 years or so XD

It still has split screen co op so stop your bitching

#25 Posted by jakob187 (21663 posts) -

Interesting, too...given that he gave it a 9 out of 10 about two weeks before:

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2008/09/03/peter-molyneux-reviews-fable-2/1

And you STILL want to buy this nutjob's games?  Tsk tsk...

I don't even think HE knows what game he's making.

I heard you can pre-order games over EBgames site, can you downgrade them too?

I dunno. I'm going to call my store, or just walk in and change it when I pick up some PSP games.
#29 Posted by Karmum (11519 posts) -

Petey cannot even guarantee things that are NOT in the game? Always sticking with the normal version of the game, the accessories are generally pointless.

Yes the reserve should be in the store you "reserved" it at online, as if you had gone in there and reserved it. To downgrade it, we would just cancel the old pre-order, and place a new pre-order on the other edition.
#31 Posted by jakob187 (21663 posts) -

THIS JUST IN:  Peter Molyneux has done away completely with pre-orders for any of his future games, including the soon-to-be-released Fable 2.  The reason for this is that "corporate entities seem to hate my unwillingness to commit to anything, and I'm over-ambitious.  I called them twats, too.  Probably wasn't a good idea."

When reached for comment, Microsoft swiftly said the same usual statement:  "We don't know why we keep giving him money, either...but you people keep buying it!!!"

Fable 2 is set to be released somewhere close to the center of the sun "very soon", from what Molyneux stated.
#32 Posted by Jayge_ (10221 posts) -

We get it, Jakob, thank you.

#33 Posted by BiggerBomb (6944 posts) -

Peter Molyneux is to the truth as Sara Palin is to qualification.

You've still got a pre-order.  I don't think you get it at all.  lol
But I'll lay off now...before you spew liquid hot Fablegasm magma out of your brains from where Molyneux has pounded that dedicated ass way too many times now.  You've got balls, sir, for sticking by that cooky ol' bald fucker.  I couldn't do it.

#37 Edited by pause422 (6178 posts) -

Thats really dumb for anyone that was gonna get this, luckily for me I see no appeal to this game at all, only need one RPG this year and fallout is miles above fable imo.

#38 Posted by jakob187 (21663 posts) -

I'm gonna end up playing an extensive amount of both Fable II and Fallout 3, so that way I can back up all the venom I've spewed at both games.

And if my opinion changes on either, you'll hear it on the GB forums first.  = D

Cancelling my LE preorder.

"*Actual LCE does not match picture. Subtract, like everything."

That's got to be one of the funniest things I've read all day.

*Bug small mini-game, then lie and say it was intentional - Check!
*Make Fable 2 Gold without all features - Check!
*Tout fancy LCE of game, then remove half of features - Check!

Is anyone else a little worried of the final product?  Or is it just me?  That Hobbe figure was really cool, though.

From Kotaku

The Fable II Collector's Edition will be missing some stuff. The swish box, some cards, and a neat little Hobbe figure. The box and the figure, sadly, there's nothing that can be done for them. They're gone. But the cards, they live on, Lionhead telling us that they'll be made available as downloadable pdf files so you can print them off. They won't look as good as they would have coming from a professional printer, but then, poor quality versions are normally better than no version at all.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! wtf

s'all I can say


#43 Posted by betterthantelevision (82 posts) -

You have got to be kidding me. Way to drop the fucking ball. I'm looking at both of you, Lionhead and MS. Although I do suppose I should thank them, they saved me $20 in the end.

#44 Posted by Roger_Klotz (776 posts) -

Wow that would suck if you pre-ordered it. Its not even worth the extra ten bucks. I hope fallout 3 doesnt do the same thing.

#45 Posted by Coltonio7 (3156 posts) -

Well that's what you all get for pre-ordering >=(

And Roger....you're crazy!

#46 Posted by Cube (4366 posts) -

I can't believe people can justify stuff like this.

I have no problem with modesty and admitting there are things you wish you could put into games and such, but Christ, that's retarded.

Molyneux is a fucking downright toolbag.

He has been doing a lot better since Project Ego aka the first Fable.  I mean really he did pretty darn good at kinda keeping his mouth shut this time.  Last time he promised the world and thats why I think it got just so dumped on.  People were expecting something else than what they received as their final review copy and they were not happy with it.  I personally enjoyed the first Fable.
