It has been 18 years since Fable was released, and if you weren’t part of the gaming eco-system back in those days, you might not remember the INSANE hype around this game. Fable was gonna be the most revolutionary game since Super Mario Bros. It was gonna change gaming forever. It was going to be legendary.
And then it came out. And we played it. And it was…fine. It’s not a bad game by any means. It’s just kinda…fine.
My buddy Keegs joins me on the show this week, and we get into the stuff we liked, loved, and hated about Fable. It might not have changed gaming forever, but that doesn’t mean it was a bad game. It was just…fine.
And before we Fable it up, I serve up another edition of the ‘Remember The Game? Infamous Intro’!
This time around, we get into the topic of micro-transactions, and whether or not they’re the black eye on gaming we all make them out to be. Does anyone else get excited for a long gaming session and then struggle to pick something to play? And will we ever cover Neo-Geo or Turbo Grafx games on the show?
PLUS, we have another round of ‘Play One, Remake One, Erase One’, featuring 3 of the heaviest hitters from 2004: Metal Gear Solid 3, Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, and KOTOR II.
