On that bombcast (Vinny first by the way) Ryan, Jeff, Vinny and Alex start talking about fable 2 and the dog specifically when Vinny say's "maybe theres a moment at the end when the dog jumps in front of an arrow for you" another podcaster then say's "but the dog sounds too fundamental to the gameplay for it to die". Vinny then say's "Maybe that's a sacrifice you have to make"
Vinny= Genius?

that, or (as much as i loved fable 2) the dog death was incredibly cliched?

Genius... Nah... Played loads of games, recognizing that when something is talked about a lot before release they properly have some important role :P 
 
But that's still a nice call. Btw, what's your reason to go back and listen to old old bombcasts? I'm not judging, I'm just interested :)

Genius? I am going to agree with you Pie, even if that example is not the only reason why I think so.

Since the dog was your companion it was probably easily speculated that the dog would die at the end.

The true answer: Vinny was the dog.

I guess me among hundreds of other people called the Trico pet will die at some point in the game since the very first trailer was leaked/shown then (if it doesn't I guess this post will haunt me :-P).

@Pie:  I sometimes go back and listen to old bombcasts it's tuesday or wednesday and i got a long busride or something, but i always go back and listen to the silly ones, like the E3 ones, or the Snakecast because of how excited they were!

He was also right about the Jack the RIpper game. They were like "nooooooo" but he was like "yes demons" and he was right!

I'm disappointed in you Pie. I can't believe you'd abandon your British roots and right the date the (incorrect) American way. Also I always knew Vinny was an oracle .

Your dog does not jump in front of an arrow, but a bullet. So HA!
