Did I fall through a temporal rift? How is this recent news? Has he only just realized this after years of being an independent? Where's my rum?

Calm down..... I was referring to Lionhead its self not Pete Molynux (or however you spell it).

Fable 3 and the two other fable games were pure crap.

You can't buy taste.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Thing is though, the Fable games are flawed in a 'god I wish there was just a little more' way. They're very good games they just suffered from some strange choices.

Some flaws came from different places than you'd expect. The talking system in Fable 3 was very dull and silly but it was already in the process of being quite different and fun as was the hand holding and several other aspects of the game. The trouble is lots of features never made it because a certain control device was made far cheaper in quality than expected and wasn't able to do what was initially promised. Still, at least it just gimped Fable 3 a little, it destroyed another game and a healthy relationship to boot.

Fine, you can buy taste. Morrisons doughnuts are quite tasty.

Maybe I meant class, they both have an 'a' and an 's' so that must have been what I meant.
