Turn 008: Inane Details

So, with Spore and Fable Pub Game out I've been spending a lot of time playing games with out really digging into them.

Spore lets you sit down for three or four hours if you want to making things from plants to spaceships to creatures of every kind and sort. Than you can use that in the game. But for a guy like me, I might spend a half hour on the colors alone. Getting everything 'right' is something that motivates me to keep tinkering at it until I think it's good enough to put in the game.

I saw some Big Daddy's that somebody made... Wow. I thought I was pretty good until I saw that. The one I saw was dead on perfect. I started playing as them immediately.

And as for Pub Games? Well, I grind out 100k every day on that. 10 minutes I can always spare, and that is about all it takes when you know the glitch. Come time I pick up Fable 2 I'll have something like 4 million gold waiting for me. And that threw me in a huge moral morass, which I don't need when I pick up a game. Do I take advantage of this loophole? The game will be less fun, I know that, but walking into Bowerstone castle and buying the thing outright as my very first action is a pretty funny idea.

And in the original Fable I figured a way around the mini game at the first bar with the cards. By telling myself what the top row was aloud, I always knew where 25% of the cards were I needed to match. Like I check the top row and it is King Jack Ten Queen, I say repeat those cards to myself mentally and check the second row. When I find a match I know exactly where it is. When ten shows up I know the third card in the top row is ten, because that's the order I'm repeating it in.

Bottom line? I earn cash until I'm bored earning cash. Plate Armor and Greatswords at level 1. That's beating the system, and glitches fall into that category of 'They should have fixed this before they made it public'.
