Fable 3 – Race for the Crown!

It is said to be a overwhelming even more than Fable 2. “It is based on the Industrial Revolution and will have a more steampunk atmosphere than Fable II.” (Wikipedia)  Now the question is if we, the players will be satisfied.

It is said that the producers will give the inventing of weapons over to the players. That should be really interesting.As Peter Molyneux talks about the Fable 3 in ther interview you feel like you can hardly wait to get your hands on the new Fable game, but everyone has to wait untill the end ofyear until it appears on the market.

Assassin’s Creed II

You will soon find out that being an assassin is not all that easy. The seen is set in Europe in Venice, in the Italian Renaissance, 15th century. While you have the opportunity to use weapons that up until now where only imagined by Leonardo da Vinci (sweet). Not only that but other Leonardo inventions will be at the players disposal for example: the flying machine. The main character is Ezio Auditore da Firenze a deadly assassin.

Enzio the main character in the game has a new cloak, that he has only access to in the in the advanced stages of the game. Some of the other changes in the game is that now their are some collectables like flags, that have a reward if you collect them. But then again their are some items that are just their to ‘collect’. Another feature that may have changed a little “Why is a game character controlled by a controller?”. But the reason that the character couldn’t be controlled by one person is because he is a remembered ancestor of someone else and controlled by: Animus. (I know this is a unusual, but hey it is also something unique.) But Assassin’s Creed II will have more ‘video game elements. Another expected change is that now Ezio can purchase goods, but also hire people. Also a day and night cycle has been added to the game, where some missions can only be achieved at a certain time.One of the amazing feature is to access legendary catacombs, temples, etc. An amazing fact is that Leonardo da Vinci, isn’t just at the side but he is also friends with Ezio.

This story takes about 295 years later than the firs with a new a character mentioned above Ezio Auditore da Firenze. Ezio is full noble who seeks vengeance after his family was betrayed. The character has the freedom to achieve the missions when they desire to, while they roam one of the most spectacular city, Venice.

Sometimes to me playing Assassin’s Creed is not playing a video game. I don’t want it to be. You’re playing an experience.” ~ Patrice Desilets

Wow . . . Lord of the Rings Game

MirkwoodLord of the Rings *(Online) came out a while ago :) . Just found out and thought of letting everybody know about it. But their is some new news that is not totally outdated which is the the online version “Siege of Mirkwood” is a new expansion added to the Lord of the Rings, that will come out this fall. The base price wil be $19.99….Sweet!

Though at first sight the game resembles Star/Warcraft where you get to be on the good and evil side, in the battles to come. In summary in the game Lothlorien (It was nice to see that they kept the places name from the book written by Tolkien) is about to be invaded by the evil Nazgul who has already taken over Southern Mirkwood, and the players can join the elves to fight Nazgul and save Lothlorien.

New Features added:

  • Skirmish system where the party’s level and size can be modified to (1, 3, 6 and 12-person).
  • Different difficulty levels to choose from
  • Creating a soldier as your partner, customize their appearance and their role in the battle
  • Auto attack can now be interrupted, during action
  • create and develop the weapons of heros

Fable 3 – Microsoft

Fable III. Is Coming Soon!!!!!!!

fable3

According to Microsoft Fable 3 will make it’s appearance in mid 2010 or later. Lionhead Studios is going to give the player a totally ‘new and fresh’ look in Fable 3. Their are only a few features leeked about the game. But one of main changes according to Molyneux, will be to take out the ‘mechanical’ look out of the game that was present in the Fable 1 and 2. But what is exactly the mechanical part that will be thrown away? Well no one nows yet, but it is obvious that the interface will go under big changes.

Another expected change will be that the players can become royalty themselves. Which sounds awesome to know that you can rule the people in a way that suites you. But of course their is a twist in the game that whatever you do as royal player their are consequences yo be faced. But I guess the excited players just have to wait and see.
