Fable: The Lost Chapters
A game that famously allowed your character to age, get married, have a hair-cut and fart to impress passers-by, Fable is now on its way to the PC. Peter Molyneux may have gone on record to apologise for not attaining his lofty target of a fully interactive world, but he still gave gamers the opportunity to woo men and women with odd Cornish accents while buffing themselves up to become a legendary hero - for good or for evil.
The tale finds an apparently orphaned child (that's you, that is) entrusted in the care of the Hero's Guild, where you learn feats of Strength, Skill and Will (which is Fable-speak for magic). It soon becomes apparent, however, that your fate is entwined with that of the world of Albion - and that there's more to being a hero than running around killing little monsters that look like boglins. Fable: The Lost Chapters has all the usual graphical improvements that we've come to expect, as well as new regions, storylines and side-quests to keep spirits up (and, presumably, to lengthen a game that was disappointingly short on its home platform). New monsters, spells, weapons and heroic peasant-impressing expressions are also promised - and even though the balance between dark and light won't be as intricate or deep as in the KOTOR series, you can't drink too much in the pub, go home and be sick on the floor before bedding your rustic wife with boring Jedis.
The Xbox game had the split between lovers and haters, but this new content could well fill . the divide between them. And at least we're getting something out of Lionhead, even if it isn't Black & White 2.
