Fable III, get ready for angry g/f’s boys

I know my sister was dreading October 26th. The day her b/f would glue himself to the TV and get sucked into the lands of Albion.

The third installment in the Fable series dropped on Tuesday. Unfortunately due to financial constraints and lack of the crap-load of time needed for this game, I shall have to wait for Santa to leave it under my Christmas tree. But from what I am hearing so far Fable III is just as addicting and awesome as Fable I and II.

Heres a little info on the new adventure via GameStop.com

Be the hero and forge your own destiny. Storytelling comes to life as “Fable III” puts you and your hero in the center of an epic journey that traces your rise from revolutionary to ruler and beyond, along with all the action, drama and humor. Interacting with the world of Albion has never been easier or more rewarding. The Expressions system offers an ingenious new Dynamic Touch feature that allows your hero to reach out and embrace a loved one, or exact retribution against those who have betrayed you. Your hero, your faithful canine companion and even your weapons now also evolve to extremes mirroring your morality and personal style of combat. The emotional connections players will develop in the world of “Fable III” will lead to some of the most memorable moments ever experienced in a game.

Where blockbuster action meets adventure. Your journey spans from the streets of a thriving and industrialized Albion to the surrounding battlefields. The pioneering one-button combat system allows players to easily combine different styles in their arsenal – hand-to-hand melee attacks, long-range precision shooting and wickedly catastrophic spells – to advance the one-button combat mechanic to a full scale, thrilling level that offers infinite ways to engage, experiment and compete.

Choice and consequence. A core tenet of the “Fable” franchise, players are presented with infinite choices and consequences that impact the world around them. Good or evil, loved or loathed, career versus family, or just you and your faithful canine companion – live the life you have always dreamed. More so than ever before, your choices lead to far more profound outcomes that impact your every being. Whether it’s deciding the outcome of minor squabbles or changing the direction of the entire kingdom, these key decisions will change the world forever.

October is flooded with releases

Are you ready (to go broke)? Seriously though, there are quite a few big name releases dropping this month. Besides the fact that it will hit your wallet hard some of the games are ones that will have you glued to your console for some time.

I’ll highlight the big names for this month…

Release Date: Oct. 12th

I’m undecided about this game. Which is somewhat strange due to the fact that I’m usually all about FPS. I’ve heard mixes reviews about it steaming from the media and it’s beta back in June/July.  But while I didn’t play it, I never judge a game by its beta. Because that’s what it is, a beta. Anyways I see myself picking this game up only because, well I am a sucker for FPS.

~~

Release Date: October 19th

Probably the October release I am most excited for. Fallout 3 was so engaging and enjoyable, not to mention the fact that it took over my life. I am so pumped for the new wasteland with a Vegas twist.

~~

Release Date: October 26th

Another game that will steal hours of my life. I loved Fable II. Whether I was blacksmithing or completing important quests I was having a great time. I look forward in this next installment to see some improvements especially in the MP.

~~

Other Major Releases…

Super Scribblenauts 10/12

Rock Band 3 10/26

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II 10/26

The Sims 3 (console) 10/26

~~

So which game are you most excited for this busy gaming month?

Epic Fable III Controller

I’ve been pretty satisfied with my plain old white wireless controller that came with my arcade system. But this Limited Edition Fable III controller is pretty tempting.  This is the king of controllers.

This bad boy drops October 3rd with a price tag of $59.99 while Fable III itself hits stores on October 26th.

Countdown to E3: Fable III

Fable II was another one of those games that took over my life for awhile. Hours were spent just hammering away as a blacksmith and other mindless tasks. A while back the next installment of Fable was announced. With E3 coming up I can’t wait to see what Lionhead brings to the table.

As usual there are rumors floating around for this game and hopefully E3 will clear a few up. First being the use of Project Natal. This is actually less of a rumor as it was pretty much confirmed by the creator. But how exactly will Natal be used in this game is the big question.

I’m also interested in seeing if they give any information about MP. As we all know (if you played it) Fable II’s MP was pretty lack luster. You could join other player’s games but not as your own character. And don’t even get me started about the camera views. Hopefully they have made improvements for this next game.

So again I say, bring on E3!
