The coop looks like decent fun but I have to admit the linear "follow the road" level design really left me disappointed. I was hoping they would build towards all of that promise in the original Fable with a more open world style of design. That's not to say that isn't there as we're only seeing a small snippet - but I can only comment on what I'm seeing.

I`m still excited for this one personally. Loved the first Fable so this one is a definite buy for me and online co-op and the other confirmed add ons are just icing on the cake :) The implementation sounds weird (purple sphere) but kinda different and cool.

I remember all the promises/hype made prior to Fables release and when I finally sat down to play the game it was a pretty big letdown. It was an above average game and one that was worth playing but I didn't think it was anything close to the experience that they were hyping. So basically I'm taking all Fable 2 hype with more than a few grains of salt.

Later on go to gamespot and download the video of Peter M demoing the game. Stuff not shown before including new areas, combat, the dog more in depth, interacting with characters, etc. Im watching it right now and it's looking very good from what has been shown

I reserved this today but got no pub games code, gamestop says they are out, supposed to call me when they get more but I'm not holding my breath. They did sort of compensate with a facebreakers demo disc, Alone in the Dark T-shirt, and some other crap they had lying around.



I preorder stuff all the time at the local EB and 1/3rd of the time they're out :(

Sometimes I wonder whether they're hawking the stuff on ebay or something sometimes. But meh.


TBH after playing Pub games, you did better with the T shirt and demo disc.

Just read a hands-on report of the game over at 1up.com. Hmm, this is a game that I obviously have heard of but, having not played the original, was nicely off my radar. After reading the report and seeing some gameplay, this is working its way into my purchase-conscience. Hmm, I've already resisted TFU(will rent) and may resist Silent Hill (especially if it is a short, rental-period game). October has GHWT (already paid for) and Fallout 3, so maybe I can go ahead and get Fable 2 after all.
