ITT: Games that you always come back to.
Man I don't know what it is about Fable 2, technically speaking the game isn't anything special, but there's just something so comfy and enjoyable about it.
It's one of the few games that just feels good to play for me. I don't have to think about it or anything, it's just good, honest fun. One of the few reasons I still have an XB360.
Skill>Will>Strength Bartending was best job. Woodcutters are autists and blacksmiths just stuck with the first they got.
At least Fable TLC and Fable III is on PC.
Never played Fable II unfortunately. But finished TLC and 3rd one four times both.
Recently bought Anniversary but it's not same as before, could not even get past Oakvale, don't know why.
Really? I'm sure I bought it once digitally and it doesn't show up in my ready to install list. Maybe I had a physical copy, I can't even remember it was that long ago. How does it run on the ol' Xbone?
You can stream it from xbone now that backwards compat is a thing. But you need w10 though ive heard people running it at 1080 60fps
Otherwisr theres fable 3 but we all know what thats like
>The first Fable was pretty shit desu.
I never said it was great. It was just good enough. But the gameplay of the second and third games was completely devoid of any challenge whatsoever.
I was lucky since I didn't know shit about it and picked it up on a whim. Since I didn't have any hype to ride on I enjoyed the hell out of it. One of the defining games of my middle/high school years.
I can't argue with the fact it poses very little challenge, but neither did the first game, they're both as easy as each. Fable 2 just has more shit going on it, which makes it better. Plus you can roleplay as a Pirate and shoot niggas with a pistol while acting swag as fuck waving a Cutless around.
Nah I never cared much for Walter. The memories made the game for me, I remember making a child and giving it to orphanage just to adopt it few years later. Then I moved it to mountain cottage with one bed and table and never seen it again.
Shit was so cash.
Shhhh... The game is fine.
>You weapons will end up looking different based upon what you use them against!
>Note: You will get bone at least twice if you focus on the story because you are fucking always fighting Hollow Men.
Not the largest complaint, but the one that irks me the most.
I totally forgot about this feature, I remember grinding Balverines for 1 hour just to get cool looking rifle I never used again.
You niggas why is this not on Steam, literally how do I get this game expect of piratefagging? I need to play it again.
>sanctuary instead of pause/inventory menus
>people only become your friend if you do shitty fetch quests
>you have to hold hands with people to make them follow you on a uqest
>you have to be stinking rich to save people, which involves tedious grinding
SO MUCH BETTER THAN 2!!!!!!!
Grinding? Only partially true. All I did was doing blacksmithing for 30-50 minutes.
Bought half of Bowerstone. Left computer, got all the cash from in game time idling.
Came back, bought everything in whole game, even the shit on the southern island. Idled for few more hours.
Came back, treasury full and easy life.
Can't you literally not die in 2 or 3? I don't even know since they were piss easy and I never lost all my hp anyway. Despite that, there's something overwhelmingly charming about the fable series. Imagine if all of them had been seen all the way through.
You can but you'd probably have to literally put down your controller for it to happen. And even then the only penalty is losing a negligible amount of xp and getting a scar that can be removed.
Fable II is my 'it's not very good but I still like it' game
It doesn't take any significant amount of time longer.
>press dpad left
>walk to weapon type
Did the consoles have load screens for it or something? I don't see how this could take you a lot of time.
Nah, Molyneux left Lionhead so I really doubt it. The game's kinda fell in quality with each release (well, I could see Fable and II as equal at a push) so it wouldn't have been much anyway
Can someone point out a few differences between Fable 1 and 2 that makes 2 inferior?
When 2 first came out I liked it more than 1 but I don't remember why, and everyone on /v/ insists 1 is better. I wish I could play 2 on PC.
Only game i regularly go back too, even though I played it to death. Usually happens when I try replaying dks2, after 15 minutes i get bored and turn this on
Personally I think 2 is superior in every way except for the story. People bitch about it being too easy but it's not like the first game wasn't easy as shit. There's also the matter of armor being removed but I see that as a plus since it allows for more freedom of customization.
I miss it. I still think 1 was my favorite but I prefered almost everything about 2 so I'm not sure why I think that. 3 was alright, I actually got it off steam before it was removed, and I've been playing it off and on since a few weeks ago. Everytime I play 3 I just want to go back to 2, but I don't have a 360 anymore. Wish it were on PC.
>shooting the weapons out of their hands and hearing them curse as they nervously inch towards you with fists raised
>spamming the chaos spell and watching them dance, wipe the floor, and vomit uncontrollably
So many good times with that game.
>listening to this and runescape songs
Where did the time go?
>Half the game is shallow combat
>The other half is real estate
>Have to repair houses or tenants will stop paying rent
>The only way to repair them is to either go up to the houses or use the shitty overworld map
>No repair all button
>Have to individually repair all of the houses you own
>Might accidentally miss some due to the shitty map
>Jobs have bad frame drops for no reason
>Magic is extremely overpowered
>Swords are shit
>King section is a joke, just a few short sections but real estate can you make you rich it completely offsets the morality choices because you can select all the good options and still have enough money to save everyone
To top it all off your childhood friend is a slut who's crawling with STDs and sometimes births black kids. Fuck this game and fuck Molyneaux.
There wasn't at launch and I sure as hell never wanted to touch the game after the first time I played it.
I'm glad they saved a necessary feature for after the game came out though.
I really like the part where you walk through the desert and someone shit talks you through the whole walk. It almost made up for all the flaws for me.
No pause menu is fucking dumb and I'm so happy it didn't catch on.
Fable II is one of the comfiest games I've ever played. I haven't played it in probably 5 years, I should go back and give it another full playthrough.
>that pub game minigame that Lionhead released prior to release
>that opening area with the big lake in the middle
>running through Oakfield for the first time as the setting sun glistens over the corn stalks swaying in the breeze
>that one demon door with the comfy cottage and the legendary hammer and the rapidly changing sky effects
>playing with your dog in a nice pub or an open field and listening to the ambience
hhnnnnnnngggggggggggg I need to find my copy or buy a new one right now
>offsets the morality choices
Those "morality" choices were just fucking retarded to begin with.
>some cosmic horror is coming to fuck everything up and end life as we know it
>but I can't drain a lake to mine resources because it's pretty and doing so would be pure evil
>get labeled a tyrant for trying to protect people
No how about you shut the fuck up because I'm trying to save your ass you fucking ungrateful hippies.
>that pub game minigame that Lionhead released prior to release
>exploit that glitch that let you win basically an infinite amount of money that you could use once the game releases
>instead of patching it they just made it so it gave me a fuck ton of corruption points
Those cheeky fucks.
If you consider the fact that money is easy to come by, it's relatively reasonable for them to be upset.
>you want me to work for 3-4 hours to pay for an army?
>fuck you, I'm going to drain this lake instead
