Fable II update. Why no game ever can be compared to this.

Tell me. In which other game in history can you do what I just did after becoming to tired to keep on questing? I ended up playing around with all of the different stuff you can do with the A.I and the total freedom of moral choice in this game and the result went something like this:

Fable II
I managed to go on a romantic date with the Town Crier of Bowerstone after many days of him begging me to go out with him. I then went on to marry him, move in next to the Tavern (which I own after buying it with money from Fable II Pub Games. I also bought a house on the countryside and some shops in remote villages as well as some more houses in Bowerstone that Im renting out for a steady income) in Bowerstone market, get pregnant and have my first child, leave my first born with my husband, go out to the tavern next door, get the whole tavern drunk after buying them all red wine, pick up a farmer and go on a date with him to the gypsy camp where I grew up. We arrived there in the middle of the night and I decided to, without reason, slay everyone in the camp, everyone that took care of me growing up. I then continued with the midnight date and gave him some freshly picked flowers and propsed to him. He accepted and became my second husband, not knowing that I already had a husband. I went back to Bowerstone, moved into a house next to the house where my other husband and first born baby lived, had unprotected sex with my new husband and had my second kid. I took my second husband to see my first husband and they had a huge argument outside on the market all while I was flirting with the Lesbian housewive that had eyeballed me for a while. Both of them divorced me and both my kids were taken away from me. I decided to flirt up two more girls and take all three back to the house where I had my first kid for some threesome lesbian action. Turns out two of them changes their minds about their sexuality and the last one wants to save the sex for the wedding night.

Fable II
At the same time I had (or more like, slowly over the course of my actions) become quite the celebrity in this town. After buying so many people drinks, after having my marriage crushed in public, after become mother twice (its popular with the ladies), after marrying the town crier and after buying shops, houses and the tavern of the city and after openly flirting with the most lonely housewife in the city, I had become the talk of the city. Not because of heroic deeds or the slaying of dragons. I was the gossip going around. I had become a local soap opera / Big Brother / papparazzi celebrity and when I´m standing there with my three potential threesome victims people are grouping up outside of my house. The kids wanted my autograph, the men wanted to woe me and many citizens just wants to flame me for my makeup. Being a celeb isnt easy. So I dismissed my girls and ran out. People formed a circle around me so I decided to do an extended Fart expression which then failed resulting in me pooping my pants. With people running after me I decided to go about my business and get a new haircut, shop for some clothes and go to bed.

Fable II
None of this is scripted what so ever. This is what I managed to do just by toying around with the game. This is just one of hundreds of possibilities. There no end to what scenarios you can create just by messing around with expressions, morale and renown.
And the best thing is that whenever I want I can just say "fuck this", leave both my heartbroken husbands, the soap opera fame, my motherless children, the kids that want my autograph (yes you CAN give it to them by buying autograph paper and hand them out to further increase your fame) and just go out and search for treasure with my dog, who always loves me for who I am (and that feels insanely lifelike).
I just love this game... Theres an endless amount of stuff to play around with and theres no stopping the attention to details. Drink to much beer and you will start gaining weight and even such a small thing as gaining weight can have an impact on how your old "fans" sees you.
Buy new furniture for your house, bring in money for your family, buy 5 condoms and give them to childen as toys, buy the pub and then kill the old barman who had worked there for all his life just for the fun of it.
All of this and a 1000 things more all outside of the so far excellent story and fantastic combat. The world is huge and every location is full of love in the artdesign.
And just to clear things up. I am playing a female character, my current "gear" is some adventurer trousers, a corset, a longcoat, some boots and my trusty blunderbuss on my back. Of course, all of this has great impact on how people see you and how you see yourself. My horns are getting bigger for every hour and my skin is getting paler and paler. Im well on my way to the dark side.
And whats really awesome about all this is.. I´m getting achievements while doing it. The game rewards you for multiple marriages, orgys, heavy drinking and even shooting a defenseless rabbit. Perfect !

Oh, and my dog´s name is Molyneux...

All I can say is... you are right, those are some of the many things that make this game so great!

Posted by Mexalen

yeah, that game is great.

I went to the towncrier and pointed at him laughingly, I called him a chicken and made the others laugh at him, till he begged me to stop it and cried.
On the other hand, every single straight gypsy girl is in love with me and asks me to propose to her ..and even that gay gypsy follows me, woeing me and ask me to tell about my great adventures.

If there is one thing the game achieves easily, it's making you feel great and special.
