Re: Fable 3

Beat the game, I only had half the money I was supposed to have. The only thing that happened was a I got a screen saying most survived but many died. Wow, that's why I left my 360 on for several hours to earn money for?

Onto Fallout New Vegas!

BTW several missions unlock when you beat the game. I did a few, they were meh.

Are you saying you didn't have to fight the darkness in Bowerstone, or did I not understand correctly?

Re: Fable 3

I am now finishing off the couple of missions before heading towards the big battle, I'm doing the mission for the Queen of Aurora.
As I became King of Albion I already had 9 million whatever-the-currency, so I'm hoping nobody's going to die. By now I have more than 11 million in the Treasury.

Re: Fable 3

No I did the final stage fighting the shadows, I'm just saying nothing catastrophic happened within the game because I didn't have enough money.

That is a nice amount of gold.

Ah, got ya. Yeah, that was a little disappointing. I've enjoyed playing this one, but ultimately I think I enjoyed Fable II more.

Re: Fable 3

Yeah I liked Fable 2 more. The only thing I thought was vastly improved in this one is the world map because you can buy property from the map rather than having to literally walk to every property to do it. That was awesome. Not that this one was bad, just a smidgen less so. The last third of the game when you're King/Queen was definitely disappointing, the "missions" consisted of saying yes/no in the throne room and it was just about collecting money.

I started accumulating it early...

It's the classic story of a young Hero: I used to work all night baking cakes and playing the lute and in the morning I'd go and buy a couple of houses to rent out, then off I'd be adventuring and getting more money, just to put it right back into property, then when I could buy shops, I started doing it like there was no tomorrow. Voilà. Now I have 11 million Fable$ in the treasury and 5 million in my personal Sanctuary. I think we're ready for the Darkness. Bring it on.

Re: Fable 3

I think that was one of my financial problems. I didn't do nearly enough side jobs to supplement my property purchases. If I had, I might have been able to buy more businesses and houses earlier and raked in some more gold.

Currently, I'm considering replaying the trilogy starting with the games on demand version of Fable, since I don't have a physical copy myself.

Re: Fable 3

I didn't do any jobs. I found doing jobs intensely boring, in Fable 2 as well.

Re: Fable 3

I did pie making early on to get money to buy shops and houses but after that just ignored them.

Ok game - way too easy (yeah I know they've never been tricky but I didn't die once and even in the final battle didn't feel under any pressure at all) and as usual with this series, some of the hyped up bits (the whole making hard decisions when you take the throne) didn't live up to expectations.

Can't see why I'd go back to play the unlocked quests to be honest unless I'm in the mood to work through the achivements.

Re: Fable 3

That reminds me I got through the entire game without dying once... and then in the final battle I kept losing health for no apparent reason and abruptly died for the first time! Apparently there were little twisters going around the screen and they sap your health away faster than any enemy combatant ever could :rollseyes:

Re: Fable 3

^ I wanted to come out of the first run through the game with that achievement too, but I did die I think in my first encounter with some balverines that caught me by surprise (and that I underestimated, stupidly enough). I did go back to a previous save but I think the game remembered that I got knocked out that once and I didn't get the achievement in the end. Darn.

Re: Fable 3

Yeah, there are no previous saves - you might have shut down your console when you died, but for some people that didn't work.

Certainly it was an annoying achievement and it's why I stocked up on health potions over and over again.

Re: Fable 3

^ Well, I do need a second playthrough anyway, just so I can play as both male and female and see how it goes.

Does anyone know this: if I start a new game, will I still be able to access my old game? Like in Fable II, where you were given the chance to have more than one Hero.

Yep, you can switch characters from the Sanctuary.
