I hope this time Fable will be a more ‘open’ RPG.Â I’m almost to the end of Fable 2 (I’m slow) and so far the game feels like more of an action adventure than it does a full-blown RPG and although it’s probably intended to play that way I feel it would be better if they would just open it up significantly.Â The rumor mill – admittedly the only thing I’m tapped into for Fable 3 info – is saying that this will place you in the role of King and you get to control the kingdom.Â Â That sounds like it’s taking town-play to a whole new level of boredom and micromanagement, but maybe there’s more to it.Â I’ve also heard that Natal might be utilized which isn’t a stretch given Molyneux’s involvement.
Graev directed me to some FFXIV gameplay vids this morning. They’re all taken with cameras showing the displays/presentations at Gamescon 09 so it’s tough to get a feel for the graphics quality (and equally hard to understand the language) but watching the videos gets a few points across.
Scenery from the Lalafell gameplay was beautiful. Affirms that the game will be pretty. Unfortunately, the rest of the videos I’ve seen look boring and clunky. I want to be a big fan of the game but these did nothing for me.
Shoot something!!!! Maybe the guy speaking (German?) is expounding upon some great features or something but the gameplay being shown is…. so…. slow…. and… boring… and … slow …. and… Shoot something already!
Oh well.Â I won’t be too hard on them until I can figure out what’s actually being shown in the video.Â I’m just not impressed yet.
Anyone have videos of decent FFXIV gameplay or able to tell me what’s being said in these vids?
