    Ted Timmins from Lionhead Sudios announced this morning that a HD remake for Fable called Fable Anniversary would be released on Xbox 360 during this holiday season. This remake will include the Lost Chapters DLC.


    I only really played the first game on my PC, but I quite enjoyed it.
    I'm kind of sad that it will only be on Xbox 360 though...

    After playing it on the PC, I doubt I'll play it on anything else.

    Awesome, this will make up for the crap that was Fable 2 and 3.

    I thought Fable 2 was pretty decent to be honest. Fable 3 however I agree, was a bit pants.

    Fable was epic! The Lost Chapters was a really nice experience I must say.

    In Fable 2 they removed armors and the mana bar. There wasn't even a way to lose in that game. If I'm not mistaken, you just spawn in place at the cost of exp.

    Yeah you couldn't die as such. It was a long time ago when I played it, but I think when you did die you just carried on but with physical scars. And this had a detrimental effect on character interactions and stuff. It wasn't ideal, but it was different to to the normal die, respawn, die, respawn with no consequence.

    It won't feel quite like Fable 1 if I can't laugh at the horrible character face models. :c

    I played Fable 2 a bit and several things made me abandon it.
    The major one would be the extreme simplification of game mechanics: Less character and equipment customization, less weapons, no more enchantments on weapons and THE SPELLS, DAMNIT, THE SPELLS. I mean, they removed almost all of them, and left only basic attacking spells plus 2 others.
    Also, incredibly slow fights when it was fast-paced. Easy combat system, no experience bonuses if you do kill streaks...
    The final touch was probably the death "punishment": You get a scar. I mean seriously.

    Fable The Lost Chapters is one of my favorite pc games; I still have it installed on my pc. I did not like 2 or 3.

    I figured it was but you're never sure on the Internet.:P
    Actually it took me some time to remember what the boss was at first.

    I still don't remember the boss. I remember both from Fable 1 though.

    I so wanted the sword so I chose the :evil: decision, just to realize that it was weaker than the one I had.

    Loved the game back in the days, may pick this up after it's around 10€. Decent game, but as always with older games, it has aged a bit.

    I guess this means no fable ONE (fable 4) for the xbox one at E3.
