I haven't been following Fable Legends, but as a fan of the first three (I know, how could I!?) this game looks actually not good. :/

I'm a fan of the series too, and totally uninterested to this one. But I prefer single player games to online ones.

It looks terrible.

Fable 2 is one of my favourite games of all time. :(

It's nice to see Fable Legends getting some attention. I played it at gamescom and it was far better than I expected. Hopefully we'll see a new, more detailled trailer.

Same, this looks more like a weird Gauntlet reboot series.

I wouldn't say favorite but I definitely enjoyed all 3 main fable games. They have many many many flaws but I was able to avoid a lot of problems by simply not looking in the hype at all.

Would anyone have wanted fable 4 though?

I think they should have put the series on a hiatus... I do remain cautiously optimistic that fable legends might turn into something worth my time.

It has already been on a hiatus. Fable III, the previous mainline title, came out in 2010.

They should have put Fable aside and worked on something new in the interim. After Fable III and The Journey, I think the series needed a bit of time to rest while Lionhead put their focus elsewhere.

Completely new IP would have been better. I still wouldn't have played it but it would give their players something new.

I am ok with Fable Legends if it means the series name is still alive and we get a Fable 4.

Actually, just reboot the whole thing and go back to the plans for Fable 1 and make good on it. I want to grow those trees dammit!

Robin Beanland and Gregg Mayles are the heart and soul behind Banjo and still at Rare, so without them involved im not really that excited. But more games of that kind is always welcomed, interesting that they said theyd like to go on WiiU. More info in Fable Legends would be nice OP.

I get the vibe that this is their intention with Legends. But they talk talk talk so much it's really hard to just filter out what they mean game to game.

I LOVED the first one (my favorite game of all time, tied with FFVII), but each sequel has been total shit to me and from what I have seen this looks just as bad as 2,3 and Journey

Yeah, I really don't know where this fits. Pick from set classes and dungeon crawl with friends could actually work well if they keep the variety there but, deep down I just want a new Fable Open world RPG that actually has dungeon crawling co-op in it.

Why would a print magazine give a shit? Day 1 reviews aren't exactly what those are known for.

You came to this conclusion based on a single number with zero context? No wonder euro gamer is getting rid of number scores. Metacritic has really fucked people up.

I doubt that's the case with Edge. But then, they gave Dead Island 4/10 (which I thought was a very miserable score), so they're saying Dying Light is an improvement on that. They're also a publication who often seem to value creativity and innovation higher than just being a good example of its genre.

Not Metacritic's fault that people can't take negative opinions of their favorite games.

Skimpy, kind of dull issue and a tiny reviews section (particularly considering it's been the most exciting winter for releases in awhile). Hope their freelancer budget hasn't bern cut...

True. It's the way metaxritoc has been twisted and used by both publishers and fans that is the problem.

Nice cover.

I really want to be excited for a Fable game again, but it's hard to get excited for Legends when they've focused so much on multiplayer gameplay.
Exploration and character progression are two of Fable's most important aspects to me, and Legends looks like it's taking a few steps back in those areas.

Sorry Coral Griffon. :( I'll still give Legends a try when I get access to the beta though.
