Well I had to work both sides of the coin to get the acheivenment for being evil and good and corruption. So its a good way that you have time to get to both spectrim in one play through.

Yeah, I went straight-up evil last night. My in-game wife was nagging me about a bigger house, better furniture, alone time, etc. Well, the final straw was when I came home from making money for her...she got all scared of me. I can't help it if my skin turned red and horns are coming out of my head...lol. Needless to say, the in-game wife is no more.

The real shocker for me was about 15 minutes later I overheard one of the villagers saying to another villager, "I can't believe he killed his wife". I was shocked out how thought out the conversations are in this game...even for NPC's.

The other surprise for me was seeing my chracter get fat and people responding to that. People making comments about laying off the doughnuts, etc. lol The other comment was during a "hot coffee" momment with a local "business woman" and she said something about being chuncky in the middle of the act. Totally had me laughing.

I played through it, pretty straight. I was mostly good, but made some choices that but me in the dark. Toward the end I was kinda fat and beat up.
I plan on playing again. I think it has that great replay value because you can choose so many different personalities.
I have been thinking about the add ons. I also wanted to pick up the first on and give that a go.
I am not sure what I have for achievements I don't usually pay attention to that. But I remember getting a couple just for the heck of it.

Great to have you join in on the Fable crowd. I got most of the acheivements except the 2 other choice endings but thinking about thats the only acheivement gives me fulfillment that I played the heck out of that game. I have not added the see the future acheivement but will eventually.

Well, I've tried to avoid the Fable hype for a while. I kept telling myself that I wouldn't be into a WRPG and there was a limited amount of magic, etc. Now...now, I'm kicking myself for waiting so long.

I started up my character and was put off a little by the slightly clunky movement. However, the lady's voice at the beginning that said "and so our story begins", held me to it. And then the sister's accent was very well done. And then the whole town with the traveling salesman. This all combined to push me past the less-than-smooth walking controls.

I was really not looking forward to chopping wood or making swords...did enough resource gathering in WoW to last me a life time. However, they even made this compelling for me. The little mini game with the score combo had me going for a while. Plus, I had my in-game wife nagging me about buying a bigger house, lol.

I really like watching my character change and seeing the world change in reaction to my choices. I'm going for straight-up evil here. Lose the arrest warrents...check. Knock-off old ladies...check. Laugh and make rude noises at funerals...check. Now, the whole world is scared of me and everything looks dark and shady and run down. Pretty sweet.

So for those that played it, how did you go? Good or evil? Married once or married to several? Straight or same sex marriage? Tell us about your favorite tale (no end-game spoilers please).

I am really looking forward to this too. Since I beat the first Fable 1 and 2. Supposily you are the child of the character you made in Fable 2 and I believe it starts off with the funeral of that character and the child's rise to power. That what I have been reading so far of this story. Looks good to get in 2010. Again only the 360.

I'm getting a little more information. I guess the Fable II episodes are the actual game, but done 1 episode at a time. Instead of paying for the whole game, you get to play the first part for free. Then you pay for the next part, etc. until you eventually have the whole game. I'm sure more details will come.

As for Fable III, the game takes place 50 years later, so I'm not sure how that works out.

Sounds cool.

I am thinking it would be the character you created? Like a transfer over?

Several sources are sending out Tweets from the GameCon. I think it is in Germany, so we get our info nice and early...versus E3 which is usually West Coast time.

MS at GameCon just announced Fable II will be having Episodes play. There will be five extra episodes, the first one for free. You can either pay as you go or you can get the disk in spring. I believe the first episode will be ready Sept 29.

The other big announcment is Fable III is coming next year (2010). You will play as the child of the Fable II character.
