Weekend in Albion

Posted in Gaming, My Stuff, RPGs on October 24th, 2008 by thelonegamer

Though about last week I was running and gunning with the 3rd Street Saints, looks like I’ll be spending the time in another world altogether this weekend. My copy of Fable II arrived today, and from the looks of all the rave reviews and preview videos I’ve seen online, this latest opus from Peter Molyneux looks like it hit the mark. The ability to play a Good, Neutral or Evil Hero and build an epic life in a wondrous fantasy world isn’t totally new- Oblivion showed me a pretty good time with that- but it seems that Fable II has a thing or two that should surprise me. The story looks intriguing, the gameplay seemingly simple but engaging. This is a type of game I’d probably lose myself in, which hasn’t been seen in a while.

Anyway I’ll be sure to pass by a store for provisions and snacks to keep me on the go for the time. This should be fun.
