Peter Molyneux has told GameSetWatch that people were so upset over the ending of Fable II that he received hate mail.
Apparently, some gamers were upset over the choices you had to make during endgame, which ultimately forced Lionhead to enact some changes with the DLC due to complaints getting to “such a furor”.
If you have played the game, you know of what he speaks. However, we won’t spoil anything for you just in case you have yet to play it – but rest assured, it won’t happen again.
“Don’t expect us to be as merciful as that in the future,” said Molyneux.
More through the link, but beware of the spoilers.

Is this Lionhead’s big announcement for Cologne? Of course not, you’d be silly to think so, although we wouldn’t rule it out for an appearance during the MS conference on Wednesday morning.
We’re gonna check in with MS to see if there is any weight on it.
Update: Play.com listing added. Thanks, Roybott.

An interesting article over on Develop talks about the score for Fable II and the story behind its creation.
In it, composer Russell Shaw states that he wanted the music in the game to “convey the world of Albion, but also enhance the story.”
He discusses how each region had its own sound and divulges the inspiration behind Bowerstone (Celtic, Scottish, folk, gentle), the way the combat music is based on the size of the battle, and how music reflects the player’s actions.
Definitely a good read if you are interesting in musical composition or game music.
