Gayming with Fable 3

After my friend saw my character, he said I was so predictable. :3

So this month I picked up Fable 3, and decided to try it out. I didn’t realize the amount  negative aura surrounding this game. Even as I went into GameStop, the cashier gave me a hint of “are you sure you want that?” vibe. I picked up a new copy but they immediately suggested I choose a pre-owned copy. It was practically brand new, I’m assuming the person played the game for like 10 minutes and decided it was rubbish.

Apparently they had a ton of pre-owned stock on Fable 3. This made me weary at the thought that this game must have some really bad glitches, but I went through it anyway. Then in usual GameStop fashion, they began to upsell, offering me protection plans and such. After rejecting everything, I took their offer on a Gamestop card. (I’ll talk about my issues with GameStop employees in a future podcast.)

Fable is a game series where you pretty much live out your life and make decisions that have some impact later on. Mainly the decisions are to affect your morality but in Fable 3, the decisions affect the life of your kingdom.

So whats important to any Bara Gamer is to make your character look nice. But in this game it’s always a secondary thing. You really can’t adjust the way your character looks. You’re pretty much limited to what hairstyles, facial hair, and clothing you can find. On top of that, the skills that you gain changes your looks. It’s something that happens ever so slightly and I failed to realize it. The higher your strength, the more muscular you look. The higher your stature, the taller you get. The higher your magic, the paler you are.

So my character ends up looking pretty pale, and it made me stop increasing his magic, though I still constantly use magic to get out of situations.

And at the last minute I realized that in order to make my character muscular I had to not only increase strength but also use heavy weaponry. Oye.

But I will say it was pretty hot fighting my own “self” in the DLC. Two naked guys fighting!

One of my biggest complaint was near the end of the game you must decide on being a ruthless king to earn money or be a benevolent king but have everyone die. I can see why this frustrated early adopters because without the foresight to see that you can earn money by buying up all properties, most who tried to stay a good king probably ended up having their whole kingdom wiped out. Luckily for me I had a few friends help me earn money during that time so I can save the kingdom and stay good.

Len also suggested you see Boulder and Farmer Giles

By the way, I ordered a HD PVR which should allow me to record XBOX360 videogames and place them up on this site.

    Fable was an excellent game, but as it went on to Fable 2 and 3 , it just sort of…degenerated. When I discovered that skills morph your body, I always invested all skill points to strength, to the point where my character is a hulking giant of sexy đŸ˜‰

      It degenerated badly, I love the series, just hate the design decisions they make and refuse to change.

    I won’t hold a holy light to Fable 3 or 2. I glitched Fable 2 to the point where I maxed out my hero and had tons of money (This is before I decided to be social and purchase a Gold membership). Fable 3 has so many glitches, one I can complain about is the shooting range DLC. I can’t play it unless I join Mike’s or another world. I had to restart the game since I ended up with a glitch where I had two dogs and Bowerstone Market was completely ruined and the villagers just stood around. I couldn’t enter the door to complete the quest where you gotta catch Ferret (Think that is his name) with Page. To cut this short, I wish the hero didn’t get all pale and creepy looking. The customization is limited and the game has umm… degenerated. I still have love for Fable.

      Thanks to some of my friends, I was able to have no one die and be a good king. But I saw how frustrating it would have been if you didn’t have the foresight at the time.
