Fable Anniversary dev diary explains the point of this week’s re-release

Fable Anniversary will make its mark this week on the Xbox 360 (and only the Xbox 360), but maybe you’re wondering why you should care about a gussied up decade-old game that is better known these days for what it didn’t deliver than what it did. If so, Lionhead Studios has prepared a marketing video just for you that would make Peter Molyneux proud.

You can also read some reviews of the update if you’re into that.

    Listening to that music just brings back memories of how good Russell Shaw’s score was for the Fable games, especially Fable 1. Just like how TES games have character and atmosphere because of it’ s music done by Jeremy Soule, so does the Fable series thanks to Russell Shaw.

    Danny Elfman’s theme was great, but i’ts Shaw’s music that actually makes the game for me. The melody when you enter a demon door after solving it’s puzzle is especially haunting.

    At $40, it’s out of the question. I’d happily spend $10 on it, and still be tempted at $20. It’s too old a game for a premium price like that.

    Unrelated note: There are some serious issues here with the login. It tells me that I’m logged in, but when I try to post, it tells me I must be logged in to comment. And it won’t let me log out. Every time I try to log out, it just brings me back to the front page, and still has me flagged as logged in. Except I can’t post. Only by clearing the cookies (“forget about this site” in Firefox) was I able to have your site allow me to log in properly.
