Fable III - Discussion

Just wanted to get another opinion on the Fable III version for the PC, nothing in particular just general thoughts, likes/dislikes etc.

I am about 3 hours in and enjoying it a lot, but I have also heard bad things about it. I went for a sword/rifle route and and spend a bit of time working for gold to buy up some real estate to get some funds flowing early on in the game. Some of the items I have noticed so far.

- Graphics appear to be a bit buggy, and stutters at times. Especially when doing the mini-games for gold such as lute playing or pie making. My computer isn't the problem as I have a very competent gaming rig.

- I really like the whole concept of the santuary and having everything available in one place. Although it makes saving a bit tedious rather than just pressing Esc + save.

- I like the easy integration of mouse/keyboard with game controller. For example, I have both plugged in and I use the game controller the majority of the time, but when I'm using my rifle long distance I prefer the mouse/keyboard which I can just switch to without toggling anything.

Just looking to start a discussion on the game more than anything. I know it's been out for the X360 for quite some time but I've only started it with pc.

As well if you have any general tips/hints that would help out in the early game I would appreciate it.

This is about as bad as a game with this much money behind it's development can get. It's shallow, uneven, the pacing is terrible, the story sucks, the end of the game is mind-blowingly stupid and terrible, and there is very little to redeem the experience. But after all it depends on the people's mind.

I haven't played it yet. I really enjoyed the first game though.

I've been wondering how the co op works on PC? Is there LAN support? Just online? Local?

As far as I can tell, the only co-op available is online and not through local.

I also liked the original Fable. Never played 2 because I'm more into the Fate series. Anyway, I will check in to read your opinions. Question - do you need to play Fable 2 to play 3?
Thanks

eh ive played all three, this one lacks the upgrades that the first one had, ie the whole u getting bulky when u upg strength, or lanky when u upg agility, but it does portray some visable images, u dont really look like satan end game as u did in fable 2, and u dont have halo's with butterflies floating around, as fable 1, but its still a good game nontheless, ignore harrywinston, the games story "makes sense" and is decently playable and replayable, giving you the option of a woman or man also adds to the story aswell, basically it has more of a replay value than previous ones
