Re: Fable Anniversary HD Remake -- Holidays 2013

I just started up the Lost Chapters expansion and the graphics still hold up well on a SD TV. One thing they really need to fix for the remake is the quest reloading. It's retarded how if you fail a mission they send you back to the guild school and re-enter the teleporting portal over and over again

Re: Fable Anniversary HD Remake -- Holidays 2013

I just want to know if I can have sex online like I did in fable 3. Now that Groucho is a mod, I would love to have his baby like we did in fable 3. I still hold a special place in my heart groucho...

Delayed until February 2014. Sucks, but at least it won't get lost in all the holiday launch chaos.

Re: Fable Anniversary HD Remake -- Holidays 2013

Did it have an official release date, or just Holidays 2013?

Amazon had a placeholder date of December 31st, so no it really did not have an official release date. But waiting until February '14 when I've already pre-ordered it for a couple of months is a little sucky

I certainly get that delays happen in game development, but to delay an HD port of a ten year old game? To bring it out on an outdated console a full quarter into the next generation? That's pretty amateur-hour.

Yeah. They're making an HD upgrade. Just like was done with :

Jak & Daxter Collection
The Sly Collection
Devil May Cry Collection
Ratchet & Clank Collection
Tomb Raider Trilogy
Prince of Persia HD Trilogy
God of War : Collection
God of War Origins Collection
The ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Classic Trilogy HD
Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix


...except that all those collections included more than one last-gen game, upgraded to HD. And they all came in on time.

I had forgotten about this anyway, so it's not a big deal.

I'm sorry, but was there another Fable last gen?

Re: Fable Anniversary HD Remake -- Holidays 2013

On time is all relative based on the dates set, so the comparison is a bit silly and irrelevant. I do think its dumb to put out a release like this at the start of a new console launch, whether it be now or 3 months from now. I think Kingdom Hearts is in the same boat.

Nope. Should it take longer to upgrade one game to HD than it takes three?

And, for the record there were two Halo games last gen, not that MS had any interest in bundling the upgrades together.

Unless you know when development started on the remakes, who's working on them, the size of the team, the effort going into the remake, etc I don't know whether you can estimate if it's taking longer or not.

Clearly what we've learned from this is that the PS3 is more powerful than the 360.

Certainly that's true. But if you're not going to even be able to make the final year of a console's lifespan, why even bother? Yes, there may be a bigger install base, but as a company with a first-party game, wouldn't it make more sense to put out the upgrade on at least your current gen console so that you can feature something new to play? Nintendo certainly thinks so.

Agreed, I don't think it's worth it just like Kingdom Hearts is almost not worth it too

If they put it out on the 360... "Why are they ignoring their new console?!"
If they put it out on the X1... "Why are they abandoning the 360 so quickly?!"

They'll never win with the internet. So they're doing what makes business sense.

Re: Fable Anniversary HD Remake -- Holidays 2013

The amount of work Lionhead is putting into Fable Legends probably means there's only a small team working on this HD version.

'Fable Legends' may be only installment for next 'five to ten years'

I think the reason Nintendo is releasing Windwaker HD on the WiiU is because the WiiU is their first HD console. Also, the Wii can play the original Gamecube Windwaker.

Re: Fable Anniversary HD Remake -- Holidays 2013

Let's take a look at some of the other HD remakes mentioned:

Prince of Persia HD Trilogy
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Classic Trilogy HD

Both of these were delayed in the US:
http://www.gamespot.com/news/splinte...elayed-6305357

Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix
358/2 Days was originally planned to be included as an HD remade game. However, it would've delayed the title, so it was turned into a cinematic:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdo...ix#Development

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
This got delayed in Europe. Also, the Legacy Collection got delayed by about a month:
http://www.gamespot.com/news/metal-g...europe-6342269
http://www.polygon.com/2013/5/17/434...ase-date-price

Silent Hill: HD Collection
May have not been delayed, but what was released was considered buggy and bad. Ubisoft ended up refunding 360 owners of the game.
