The excitement i feel right now is absolutely indescribable. Jack Of Blades is to Fable as to whay Sephiroth or Kefka was to Final Fantasy. The best villian, certainly the most memorable. He is probably one of my favourite villians of all time. I'm incredibly glad this game is being remastered so i can fight that mask wearing bad-ass once more.
Not to mention the rumors that we'll see Fable IV at E3. Hopefully they fixed the huge issues the games have had lately. I'm hoping its a prequel taking place in the time of the first archon, that way we don't have the overpowered guns that make the game a breeze. We kinda need a new combat system too, one similar to the first game.
I am a big fan of all the Games except Fable: The Journey mainly because I have do not have a Kinect but Yeah I thought the Combat in Fable 2 was fine, but in Fable 3 it just seemed more difficult to me even though you can basically do the same thing over and over again. as for Fable IV being at this years E3 I don't know that just seems unlikely, mainly because they are remastering The Lost Chapters. I mean if they believe they can do it then by all means do it, I just want them to make sure and take their time with it, not just throw something out there, then again I have no idea how much (or little) work is required to remaster a game so i'll just wait and see
The reason for the fable IV rumor is because microsoft IPs have the habit of releasing new entries in to the series at the same time, or in the direct wake of, a remastering, as well, Fable IV has definitely been in production.
I'm curious to see what they'll do with the hype master himself gone, we need a new combat system now, let the older one retire before it gets worse off.
It is certainty a possibility my only fear is that Fable 4 will be coming to Xbox One, I mean the 360 is still going to be here for a while, ah hell who am I kidding with the rate of how screwed up the Xbox One is there probably going to still make 360 games until they actually make a system that doesn't blow chunks
It's pretty obvious another member of the court will be making an appearance in the series eventually, though i highly doubt any of them could reach the sinister feeling that Jack gave off. I also hope they bring Jack back in full some time but thats just because of how much of a badass he was. He's the sephiroth of Fable, basically.
They need to figure morphing out though, they went in a weird direction in 2 (anyone with a strength higher than halfway looked like a slack-jawed idiot for instance) whereas in Fable III it was almost non-existent. Fable and Fable TLC did it pretty well though i wish they had not based the aging on skills obtained.
If Lionhead caves in and creates a PC port, I hope they support modding more than they did with TLC, since even the simplest mod for TLC was a pain in the ass to get installed.
I agree, they can still do something from the Court, but you have to remember they would have to make an event of time travel or something to do with it because, both the Knight and the Queen of Blades were killed by the Archon, Jack just simply ran to fight another day, don't get me wrong I would absolutely love to see any of them return especially Jack, and the actor they would have to get to play him in my mind could be no other than Benedict Cumberbatch
As for transformation yeah I just thought Good and Evil changes were satisfying in my mind, as for Fable 3 they did do some morphing so much as it was Angel and Demon with the whole wings thing, Which I thought was pretty cool, but there needed to be Physical changes as well to truly show how far the hero had arisen or fallen
As for time period it would be interesting to go back to the days of the Archon and fight The Court, but I feel they don't have to make it Albion an advanced society, hell for all we know there might not even be an Albion anymore
