Initial Impressions – Fable III

by on Nov.02, 2010, under Gaming, General

I sense a bit of irony here when it comes to the Fable and Fallout franchises.  Two years ago I preordered and received Fable II, writing off Fallout 3 because it was too dry and brown in color.  After a day of playing Fable II, I learned about all sorts of game breaking glitches and read that Lionhead was going to address them.  I stopped playing and decided to pick up Fallout 3, which stands as one of the best games I’ve ever played.  Fast forward two years and the opposite reaction is happening.  I’ve been playing Fallout: New Vegas for a week and was holding on to Fable III until I made some progress with it, but it started freezing up on me and I’ve lost a companion, and have now decided to put it down for a bit.

I started Fable III last night and have been absolutely loving it.  The opening movie is hysterical, involving a small adventure of a chicken.  I am playing as a princess (I play all these games as women after being tortured by Mass Effect 1) and found what I suppose is to be my love interest.  He grabbed my hand and said that he would lead me to our next destination, but I had to do the leading in the end.  It’s all just a tutorial.  I then had to kill some innocent people and escape the castle with John Cleese.

So far, this game feels to me like an updated Fable II, which is nothing that I would complain about.  I loved Fable II, and so far, I’m loving Fable III.  These games are just relaxing.  I made some pies and played Lute Hero for 15 minutes last night to earn a little gold to rent out a house and earn some more gold while I slept.  I haven’t come across any slowdown except when Bates joined my room while I was playing Lute Hero and it got a little slow for a few seconds.  The Fable games are not hardcore RPGs, they are games that put you into a very well-made fantasy world, full of people with attitudes that would tend to be realistic.  I’ve only scratched the surface with this one, and I’m looking forward to putting a lot more time into it!
