    So Dog Meat, your dog companion in fallout 3, sounds awesome. he fights for you he searches for treasure for you and who knows maybe he can play dead.

    Which dog would you choose to have your back, Dog Meat or that unnamed mutt from fable 2?

    Whats the best animal companion of all time?

    does it matter? Fallout 3 will be a million times better than Fable II will ever be.

    yeah,it will be,without a doubt. Not saying Fable 2 will be terrible,but its easy to see Fallout is superior in terms of quality,especially because its a new developer getting their hands on the license. Dogmeat>fable 2 dog btw also,no competition.

    Well none of us can really judge it right now, since none of us have played it ( Well some of us might have played one of them but who knows ) we'll just have to wait and see.

    As for the impressions on the dogs, Fable II's dog

    I doubt the dog in fallout 3 will be as robust as the fable 2 dog.

    the fable 2 dog you can name it, train it, tell it off, reward it and it finds tressure and helps fighting enemys so its just like the fallout dog but much better

    interesting that alot of ppl are thinking the fable 2 dog will be a hit.
    In theory it sounds pretty cool i just dont trust it will come through on peter molyneux's promisses.

    i'm gona buy both games but the fallout3 dog looks meaner so it still gets my vote.

    The big difference between the two I think is Fallout's Dogs can die in any combat, Fable 2's Dog doesn't work that way.

    Mark my words people. I don't know when, and I don't know how, but I've got a gut feeling that Fable 2 dog isn't gonna make it to see the end credits. Maybe get himself exploded during some elaborate cut scene to save your guy's life. That Dog seems like something they're really trying to get you emotionally invested in. They have to be building up to a big moment for that dog, unlike any of Fallout's dogs.

    You havent even seen dogmeat in action besides the few seconds of him walking down a street... ATM Im going to say the Fable 2 dog will be better, but thats simply because I have seen him in action and it also sounds like Lionhead is putting more emphious on the dog then Betheseda is putting on dogmeat and judging from past games Lionhead know how to make good AI.

    Yeah that's what they said in the Bombcast. That would be too heartwrenching though, imagine you spend so many hours playing the game and then suddenly, you dog is a pile of meat.

    That would be sad

    No one said the dog in Fallout 3 would be as robust as the one in Fable,just overall Dog Meat for choice because he rocks,and is cooler. Just saying that out loud though...that  so much damn work was put into a dog in that game,and the way Peter M talks about mainly just that,really turned me off from that game.

    All the dog is in Fable 2 is an interactive mini-map.

    Dog Meat is nothing compared to the dog in Fable 2 who I actually became attacked to.

    Dog Meat does nothing but get in the way. Especially when you use guns.
    And the dog in Fable 2 *tried* to be interesting, but kind of failed.

    I like Dogmeat he seemed far more apparent in the game and I actually wanted to protect him since there was a chance he could die, so I became attatched to him.

    The Dog from Fable 2 is far more useful than Dogmeat, plus it has intelligence and acts like a dog. The only thing that Dogmeat is good at is standing in your way.

    I think the clear choice is "Dog" from Half-Life 2.

    Between the two options though, I'd go with the mutt from Fable II.

    I like how you worded the title.
    "FUCKING KICK ASS DOG MEAT (YEAH!) or that stupid limp dick other one. from that one game."
    anyway, I choose neither. I like "Dog" from Half-Life 2.

    Fable 2 dog because I actually grew attached to that fellow, while I kept Dogmeat in my Megaton house most of the game in fear he would go meandering and get himself killed.

    No contest. Fable 2's dog is more useful, versatile and way more entertaining. 

    In Fallout 3, Dogmeat's purpose was staying in my home in Megaton so he wouldn't run off and die every time I brought him outside.
    They gave a perk to make him respawn in Broken Steel, but you have to run all the way to Vault 101 to get him, and he's still useless as hell. Especially against the new higher lvl enemies.
