A complete HD remake of the original Fable game is coming from Lionhead this fall. Complete with achievements, the Lost Chapters addition, and everything.

Lets discuss Microsoft going back to this awesome series roots with this remake.

Cool news as I never played the original.

 

Loved Fable 2 though, and thought Fable 3 was still pretty good.

Although I never finished the first, it was the best in the trilogy looking forward to this!

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.

My wife is psyched, Fable II was the first game she really got into. She tried the original but it kept crapping out because of the 360's terrible bc.

They should package this with an Acorn.

(I hope some get that reference)

As one who loves and has played all the Fables, Fable II was its peak. This is nice that people that might have missed the boat before, or never heard the hype coming out of an individual developer's mouth so they'll get to experience Fable 1.

Peter Molynuex single handedly killed Fable for me. Overall Fable wasn't a bad game, just so much over the top promises that I felt completely dissappointed.

That would be a nice nod. And I hope this thread doesn't degrade into a Molyneux bashfest. The games are what they are, either you enjoy them or you don't.

Back to that acorn, while that was a joke, there really is no chance for a collectors edition of this, is there?

I'm hoping for a max price point of $39.99 for this. If its higher then I'll wait a grab it when it goes on sale. Halo CE Ann was $39.99 if I am correct when it came out.

Hmm actually listening to one of the developers, who actually was a playtester on the original Fable, talk about their additions and tweaks to Fable 1, it sounds promising (new achievements!?).

Molynuex actually admitted he overshot by miles and basically made the acorn a joke also. So I hope he incorporates it somewhere in the RE-release

Could be because I didn't play much of the game due to the bc issues on the 360, but what is this about the acorn.  What I did play of the first game it wasn't bad.  All the talk about what was to be in one and and only getting some in two and finally getting it in three, was my issue with the franchise.  By the time 3 came out all I could think of was it was about damn time we got what we were promised all along.  Once I did play three it felt like it was a let down.  Still a fun game though.  I will be picking this up when it comes out.

The lead designer, Peter Molyneux, put massive unrealistic expectations for the first Fable. Boasting of things like "every single decision counts, even tiny ones add up to large events changing", "dynamic world that changes with the paths you take", "drastically different gameplay/story depending on the choices you make", getting married, having kids, building a house from scratch etc etc. Just promising you the house, kitchen sink and the neighbors house.

He likened it to an acorn being planted then growing before your eyes. It would soon branch of in different paths and at the acorns fully mature state you had a massive oak tree, in which you could play the game an almost infinite amount of times and end up with a different experience each time.

He later recanted his words shortly after release as the massive shitstorm hit the fan because of unmet expectations.

In its day it was one of the most overhyped/under delivering games I have ever seen. Even though overall the game was a decently good game. Expectations were placed way, Way, WAY too high.

He he, I'm pretty sure that's what he wanted and then the development team went what are you crazy, we can't do that with Xbox architecture!  :rofl:

 

Yeah he probably played Zelda 64, planted the beans and really liked that you could access other areas due to a fully grown plant with leaves that act as stairs.

 

 

 

 So I hope he incorporates it somewhere in the RE-release.

As far as I know he isn't even involved in this as he left Lionhead Studios and is working on a Kickstarter game GODUS.

Yeh I knew he left Lionshead, didn't know if he held any rights in Fable or if they consulted him as he was there until Fable: The Journey came out last year. Guess I didn't think too much into it when I posted.

I just hope they implement the acorn in some way just as a nod Easter egg.

wow that is a tremendous improvement. i wonder if this one will have a feature similar to halo anniversary where you can flip between the old and new graphics at the touch of a button

Yeah I think that developer did that to maintain the core loyal Halo fans.  :bow: It would be a cool feature though.

You definitely need to pick this up then. The first Fable is still my favorite and most played of the series. If it's anything like the pictures, they've done a great job improving it. Hopefully it'll be around the $40 price range.

I was just about to go back and play the original Fable, so this is excellent news. The first Fable is easily one of my favorite games.

I have learned to ignore Peter Molynuex since he's a crazy person.

 

I personally really enjoy the Fable games and I'm really looking forward to this re-release.

That's really clever and I'm loving how much Lionhead is embracing the community.  I never got too far into Fable 1, so I can't think of any good suggestions for achievements, myself.  This is seriously my most-looked forward to game of the Fall, though.  Can't wait!
