Reality or Fable II Firmly Dated?

Special Super Ultimate Limited Collector's Special Rare Edition detailed

Posted by Staff
Microsoft has put a date to the birth of the latest brainchild of Peter Molyneux and Linohead Studios, Fables II. The good news, Mums and Dads, is that you'll be able to stuff Little Johnny's Greedmas stocking with it (so long as Little Johnny's 16 or older).

The game will be out on October 24th over here. US gamers will be able to get it a little earlier on the 21st, while the rest of the world will have to wait a little while to find out when they'll see it released.

Fable II Pub Games has also had a date put to it - August 13th. 360 owners will be able to get it for free if they pre-order Fable II from a participating retailer, while those who don't will be able to download it for 800 Microsoft Points. The game is a collection of "casino-type" pub games dubbed 'Fortune’s Tower', 'Keystone' and 'Spinnerbox'. Booty earned in them can be amassed then used in Fable II when it launches.

In addition to the standard version of the game, Microsoft has also confirmed the contents of the 'Limited Collector's Edition' announced earlier in the year. Packed in with it will be:

• Bonus DVD – Includes new ‘Making-of Feature’ with Peter Molyneux and the team at Lionhead Studios and concept art viewer.
• Bonus In-Game Content (Requires LIVE account) – Includes “The Hall of the Dead” Dungeon, “The Wreckager” Legendary Cutlass Weapon and Otherworldly Bonus.
• Collectible Hobbe figure with accessories – From the Qee Collection comes this one-of-a-kind Hobbe figure. Nasty, brutish, and short, he roams the countryside, preying on travelers and spiriting away the children of the unwary.
• 48-hour Xbox LIVE Gold Trial Card – With Xbox LIVE Gold, players can show off their individual hero by inviting friends into their unique version of Albion or they can visit their friends’ Albion, and earn additional gold, experience and renown to take back into their own.
• Five printed Fate Cards – These five beautiful cards foretell the Hero’s great destiny to journey across all of Albion, encountering deadly enemies and enigmatic allies. The path leads to a choice that will change the world forever.

You can see the goodies in the picture above.

Collectors Edition for me! I will pre-order it to get the code as 800points is a lot, but that means surely they would have to give you the code first otherwise you would be sitting around until the release of the game to get the code by which it would be pointless.

So pre-order get code then cancel pre-order...I say this cos I got a big credit note with CEX lol.

Now, are you sure that you’ve thought this through?

Then MS block cancelled pre-order code, because they don’t like chancers, even dim ones. MS lol.

“lol” is starting grate on the nerves, almost as much as “At the end of the day...” used too. And I think SS4 uses “lol” about as often as full stop.

I had already assumed your "lol"s where only for comic affect, and although I didn’t “lol”, I did give it a wry smile, and appreciated “lol” being used in context, for once. I think I’m danger of sounding like a pedant. The Spong forums are getting to me.

thats the thing isn't it.

i would highly doubt anyone that uses the term LOL, was actually laughing out loud at that point.

and i think being a pedant is underrated.

I think SS4 might, in a "WAHAHA! Need more brains Eegore, more BRAINS." kind of style. And lets face it, if ever more brains were needed...
