Make Your Own Chicken Chasing Villager In Fable III

Posted by MattBodega (2276 posts) -

Thanks to Microsoft and Lionhead, I will finally have the opportunity to fart on myself.
 
How did we, as a society, reach this newest technological height? It's all thanks to Microsoft and Lionhead newest preorder incentive, the Fable III Villager Maker, allowing game players to craft a unique-ish villager and bring that sod into your digital kingdom when Fable III is properly released on October 26.
 
Here's how it goes down: right now, if you've got a computer (and that dang Silverlight add-on... I feel like I've installed that thing 20 times this year), you can go to the Fable III Villager Maker, which is being run through the Microsoft Xbox site. Here, you can design your design your villager, selecting their gender, clothing, accent, personality, hair style, region of origin, and back story.  
 
Once you've made your villager, you can than proceed not to do anything meaningful with them. The game's not out for another three months anyway. You can export your villager and make it your desktop wallpaper. If that's your thing.
 
Oh, and you can share your villager with your friends on Facebook and Twitter. 


Don't tweet your Fable III villager. Don't be that guy.

 
If you were actually interested in utilizing your villager in your personal version of Albion, you're gonna have to buy in, and gold don't cut it: if you preorder the game, you will receive the code that lets you import your villager into Fable III. Your imported villager unlocks a unique quest and a 1,000 gold reward for your trouble, which doesn't seem that much compared to my real estate empire I amassed in Fable II
 
But, for the record: you can fart on yourself. A preorder at one of a very select list of retailers is a small price to pay.

I love chasing chickens

#3 Posted by zolloz89 (274 posts) -

a strange gimmick for sure

#4 Posted by Dustpan (1781 posts) -

Magnificent.

#5 Posted by Jayzilla (2643 posts) -

that's kinda dumb. not really a fan of this series and i was hoping that the game would be a little more deep like peter led us to believe.

It's that chicken chaser. Do you chase chickens? 
Best. Line. Ever.

If you can make out with  your villager you can live out the Robot Chicken line of, "It's not gay; It's masturbation."

I never finished Fable II. Got kind of sidetracked half way through with other games and eventually sent it back to Gamefly in order to keep myself from succumbing to the monthly money drain it would eventually become. Not sure if I want to go back and finish really but I leave so many other games halfway done maybe I should...Anyway, I might get Fable III.

Excellent. A way to humiliate and destroy my most hated people.

#10 Posted by Oldirtybearon (5211 posts) -

That`s great. I do wonder if we could make the chicken chaser  Onomatopoeic.

I agree. 
But this all seems like a bit of a pointless gimmick
#12 Posted by JerkFace (124 posts) -

Can you make one that doesn't look like a retarded person?
 
Oh, wait, it's a Fable game.  So clearly not!  :D

#13 Posted by SmAsH (254 posts) -

Mmmmm Chicken!

#14 Posted by SlayingShogun (261 posts) -

farting commence!

#15 Posted by Robitt (365 posts) -

Self-fart technology! This is exciting! Tested.com should write up something on this.

#16 Posted by ajamafalous (12448 posts) -

Oh wow, Fable 3 is out in only three months? I feel like we know next to nothing about the game yet.

#17 Posted by Sammo21 (4157 posts) -

See, this is a problem for me.  Heck, I love British comedies and I cannot for the life of me get into any Fable game; it's almost as if some small 8 year old child who was shown LoTR for the first time while with his immature, gassy friends were with him was handed the reigns of the game's development.

Because what we need is more things to integrate with facebook and twitter.

#19 Posted by buckybit (1517 posts) -

Matt Kessler - my comment for you was brought this week by Best Buy - enjoy it. :)

#20 Posted by SMTDante89 (2732 posts) -

Yay...more Twitter stuff.
#21 Posted by Guyzea (801 posts) -

Ridiculous.

#22 Posted by NinjaHeartless (31 posts) -

Sounds pretty awesome :D

#23 Posted by ethan (840 posts) -

Way to go intern.  You know what Im talking about.

#24 Posted by simpledespot (57 posts) -

Sounds just a bit contrived.

#25 Posted by Llama (168 posts) -

I'd like a cat instead this time

#26 Posted by DAXTER112 (7 posts) -

This will just lead to me making a bunch of people I know populate the Fable III world, and who wants that?

farts

#28 Posted by mustachioeugene (544 posts) -

still waiting for this series to really entice me.

Online
#29 Posted by Judoka (70 posts) -

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOk.

#30 Posted by Zachariahus (135 posts) -

I'm loving Kessler's twitter feed in that screenshot. lol. But to be more on topic.  
 
Uhh... What is this I don't even... 
 The best part is that you can download it as a wallpaper. Priceless.

#31 Posted by Castiel (2924 posts) -

ARGFGShG Shitcock!

#32 Posted by Qdor (88 posts) -

Absolutely ridiculous. Heck yeah i'll do it.

#33 Posted by punchkick (27 posts) -

I want to make a villager chasing chicken.

#34 Posted by triple07 (1239 posts) -

Sweet gonna try this out. Can't wait to get my hands on Fable 3!

#35 Posted by Sirtoastman (3 posts) -

Seems interesting.

#36 Posted by KingdomKey (23 posts) -

That's another bullet point in my "Why I dont like Fable Anymore" blog.lol. I know the series is suppose to be light-hearted but most of it is just childish. Isnt Fable 3 suppose to be more "dark" and "mature" in tone?

#37 Posted by MeatSim (10996 posts) -

Interesting but still a hoke pre-order incentive.

#38 Posted by fedorajay (414 posts) -

Give your cat your own name and you can fart on yourself anytime you want.

#39 Posted by Slax (1008 posts) -

I enjoyed playing Fable II but once again it seemed like Lionhead made more promises that it couldn't follow through on. But making your own villager seems kind of gimmicky, and not really important in any way. I'd rather make my own awesome weapon.

#40 Posted by TheChaos (1205 posts) -

What an amazing idea. 
This is truly the year of technological advancement.

#41 Posted by Armando (14 posts) -

good to many of the villagers looked alike

#42 Posted by Xymox (2151 posts) -

I was interested until I saw the part about only being able to utilize the villager if you preorder. Still, probably won't stop me from making one anyway. Hu.

I still don't understand why Twitter is popular.  Facebook is far more fully featured..

#44 Posted by SashaNYI (33 posts) -

Been Fable II like a madman lately.....getting in the mood.

#45 Posted by Feanor (1440 posts) -

Chicken Chaser 

#46 Posted by AleksO (107 posts) -

Im still looking forward to Fable 3

Same feeling here.
#48 Posted by Vegetto (14 posts) -

3 months?  This is not the way to hype us up for Fable III.  I know Molyneux has some other extravagant ideas he could have given us instead.
