    I don't fully agree.

    [No spoilers]

    The story and plot mechanics are set up in a way so that the devs have an excuse to make a shitty and broken story that doesn't have any choice.

    BAD THINGS

    • Combat was meh.
    • Upgraded weapons do not change appearance.
    • Out of all the vigors (the powers for you who haven't played it) you only ever have to use 2, fireballs and posess.
    • Story is confusing as fuck.
    • The game is an extremely linear arena shooter. You go through a corridor, come to an arena (big open area), music starts playing, and waves of enemies appear. When music has stopped you know it's over.
    • Elizabeth had no emotional impact on me. She is a brat.
    • Final fight sucked major poop.
    • Game in general reeks of "I want to be a movie"

    GOOD THINGS

    • Aesthetics of Columbia is beautiful.
    • Guns feel satisfying, I almost only used the carbine though, f yeah.
    • The plot is actually pretty cool, but kinda badly done.
    • Dat bird (you who played the game know)
    • Feel of the game is generally good, very immersive.

    Maybe Some Spoilers!!!

    Disagree, story ending I thought was great, and they did a pretty good job...I enjoyed it. Gameplay wise, that last fight was reeaaallly dumb, and the fact you are even fighting against those guys at all was ridiculous. You are on their side, and the excuse they have to make you enemies is garbage.

    Also the last fight was just lame....

    BAD THINGS

    • Combat was meh. Some of it, yeah :/. Skylines were fun.
    • Upgraded weapons do not change appearance. Personally don't care :lol:
    • Out of all the vigors (the powers for you who haven't played it) you only ever have to use 2, fireballs and posess. :lol: I rarely used possession, and mosty did Electic and Hydro for CC, Sometimes Ram and Fire. Hydro is great for takeing out an entire ship by washing everyone off the deck.
    • Story is confusing as fuck. I didn't think so :/
    • The game is an extremely linear arena shooter. You go through a corridor, come to an arena (big open area), music starts playing, and waves of enemies appear. When music has stopped you know it's over.Agree lol. I still like piano *Twaanng* when you Melee kill.
    • Elizabeth had no emotional impact on me. She is a brat. </3
    • Final fight sucked major poop. Very poop.
    • Game in general reeks of "I want to be a movie" And there is a 3 hours movie version on youtube I think.

    GOOD THINGS

    • Aesthetics of Columbia is beautiful. Check
    • Guns feel satisfying, I almost only used the carbine though, f yeah. Machine Gun, Shotgun, Carbine, Hand Cannon. RPG Sucked.
    • The plot is actually pretty cool, but kinda badly done.2 deep 4 u lololo
    • Dat bird (you who played the game know) Fuck that bird.
    • Feel of the game is generally good, very immersive. Check

    Songbro was the best thing in the game. And story is confusing since it gets dumped all up in your face in the last 10 minutes.

    Forcing you to do one replay, where they dump all the forshadowing in the first 10 minutes. Starting to agree with you more....

    Got bored of Deus Ex and Dishonourd reeaaallly fast :/
    Fable 3 will be given a go, its okay... The gnomes are hilarious, the rest of it is kinda lame... except the interaction with Dog, holy shit thats the cutest, most loveable computer rendering of animal companionship.

    The Fable games are always good fun for a bit even if they did drop the ball with those games in recent years. The first Fable game is one of my favorite games ever. Great soundtrack, story, and atmosphere that is very original.

    Using a mouse and keyboard means I have to sit up, and I seriously have been avoiding it at all times. I actually avoided Fable 1 because It didn't have xbox controller for windows mapped out :/

    That sucks. The other 2 games are okay I guess, but I honestly have no desire to go back and play them. Fable the Journey was terrible supposedly. Never played it but I've heard nothing but negative things about it.

    Fable 1 is the best in the series easily. Great soundtrack as well, dat guild theme. 2 was ok and 3 was shit.

    Steam ID is the same as my username here. I only play a few games though really: Guild Wars 2, Battlefield 3, Team Fortress 2, Borderlands 2, League of Legends and... That's it really. Pretty much in that order too. I have other stuff, but I never touch them.

    And I agree Ensi, that whole soundtrack to Fable 1 was fucking epic. Going to go DL it now actually lol...

    Also, how do you guys feel about the new consolols?

    I agree completely. I haven't seen an idea this bad in awhile. There is not one redeeming quality about the console yet. Microshit are literally buttbucking their community. Halo is the only title I even care about and I will not be buying an xbox One so I guess Halo 4 is it for me.

    Nothing can sum up how shitty it is better than this picture.

    Ask again in a few years, I bought a Wii last November and a Ps3 last night. Ha.

    So on my list I have to add Dark Souls, God of War 3, Heavenly Sword, Resistance 2, Killzone 2, and some more in the stack I got I can't see. Yay!
