Looks like a 4 player co-op beat-em-up (ala Castle Crashers) that takes place in the Fable universe is coming... Looks fun, but the art style on the characters is weird and overly simplistic.

Those faces look like the CG babies in that diaper commercial that shit their pants so hard that they expand nearly to the point of bursting.


As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

Winner. End of thread.

No, seriously. Fable Heroes? When I read about it at first (without seeing screenshots) it sounded like a cool concept, but this really looks like shit. Poop, there it is.

Ugly yes, but it should still be fun. Here's a trailer:

Looks interesting. I guess it'll be a summer of arcade game.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

I love all things Fable, even the novels. I want to like this and it does look cute. But I can't shake the disappointment that we have 2 spin offsis and no Fable 4. Guess I just need to look at this one on its own merits.

The odds are good that they're saving Fable 4 (and Forza 5) for the next Xbox console. There is a chance of it coming out next year, ya know.

That would make sense, especially after no major reveals at GDC and I don't expect anything major at E3 from M-soft. My fear is that with those two brothers having departed Lionhead who were the driving forces behind Fable in terms of creative direction, and now Molyneux leaving.....Fable 4 won't be the same. Not sure what to expect now.

Then again.....Final Fantasy still lived on after Sakaguchi left. Doh!! :wall:

Here are my impressions. It's definitely nowhere near as good as Castle Crashers, but still fun in multiplayer. Lower your expectations and you can enjoy it.

No, it's just possible to enjoy a game that has problems or needs more polish. We don't live in this binary world where everything is either the best thing ever or the worst thing ever. Given your response I doubt you'll understand that, but there's definitely an enjoyability spectrum. And if you like just about every beat-em-up you play, this one doesn't do anything that would prevent you from liking it as well.

Reviews aren't too good, looked at file size and its like 1.29 GB so can't really be bothered to even download the trial.. maybe on a future XBLA sale.

East....your lukewarm "it isn't that bad" response is the only thing giving me hope at this point. I should have a chance to play tonight.

I can't fucking believe that they did this. So there's this and that Kinect Fable game that everyone assumes is on rails. I guess the REAL next Fable - Fable 4 will be a launch title for Xbox 3 and these are all just ways to use brand recognition to drive up sales of games that could take place in any fantasy world.

Tried the demo last night and it's a bit too casual for me even though I like beat em ups.

Played the trial. I want to like it, but ugh... I just can't. Sadly I think the South Park game is more entertaining than this.

All depends on what you are looking for. It's unpolished to say the least. But there is fun to be had. the demo is pretty indicative of the full game, so if you like that then the game is for you.

The more I play this game, the more adamant I am that this really an under appreciated game. Its fun! The controls are fine, the levels are interesting and there are a lot of different things to do. I'm a huge Lionhead fan so maybe that helps. Maybe its not for everyone (what game is?), but those abysmal ratings were unjustified.

This game is available for 400 MSP right now. I tried the demo, enjoyed it, and then bought the game since I had the points already. I'm a big fan of this genre, so others' opinions may differ, but I'd recommend giving it a shot.

What's that, Matt? You broke away from the PS3 long enough to buy and play an XBLA game? We'll have to run through a few levels together sometime.
