  • Eurogamer gives Fable II 10/10 [Update]

    Eurogamer has awarded Lionhead’s Fable II 10/10. Peter Molyneux said previously that this game will define his position in the industry, so a 10/10 isn’t bad start, you could say.

  • Watch the first 10 minutes of Fable II in Polish

    After the break. It goes without saying that this is a “spoiler,” so don’t watch if you want to stay clean. It’s the first full first minutes of play from the Polish version of Fable II, and it does pretty much give the game away, so to speak. Looks lovely, though. Watch if you dare. […]
