Microsoft announces Fable III, episodic Fable II

Fable III will follow the player on a quest to become the king (or queen) of Fable's mystical land of Albion

At Microsoft's GamesCom press conference, it was confirmed that Fable III will be heading to the Xbox 360 with a host of new features. Lionhead's Creative Director Peter Molynuex was around to give a few words about the new project.

"We've spent a lot of time at Lionhead thinking about how we can innovate the gameplay and progress the world of the 'Fable' games for its third chapter, and we're confident that players won't second-guess what we have planned for 'Fable III.'"

Fable III will follow the player on a quest to become the king (or queen) of Fable's mystical land of Albion, and promises to bring back the moral choices that shaped the previous two Fable games.

It was also announced that Fable II, the single best selling RPG on the Xbox 360, would be seeing an interesting new approach to its release. Starting on September 29th, Microsoft will be releasing Fable II episodically via Xbox LIVE through "Fable II: Game Episodes." The first Fable II Game Episode will feature the protagonist growing from childhood to adulthood, and will then continue in four other consecutive installments.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
