Fable II. You can finally play it on PC. Sort of.

    Just noticed that MS added their cloud with console games to gamepass service. I just tested it in Poland and i didn't feel any lag.

    What is more important is that you can now play Fable II which is imho the best out of Fable games and this game never got released on PC for some stupid reason. I didn't check more games yet but i hope they will make available Last Oddysey and Blue Dragon which are other notorious x360 exclusives that never got to PC from FF fantasy Sakaguchi. There are some more games like Banjo etc.

    If you have an Xbox One, Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon are backwards compatible. You can get an XBONE for dirt cheap now (like $100). I’m using mine to play 360 games I missed out on since I never owned one.

    Haven’t played Fable II but the first game was fairly enjoyable, I’ve heard mixed opinions about which is better between the two.

    Thanks for the info. Fable 1/2 are good and fable 3 is shit. Like Diablo 3.

    Imho F3 is fun game just not what fans wanted. It should be called something else like spin off or something like that.

    Fable 2 always seemed casual af but interesting, but when it comes to Microsoft-owned limeyshit I'm more interested in Berri Rare Replay

    Fake thread is fake.

    Please Mr. Molyneux, give us Fable II remade for the personal computer.

    Cloud? Screw that. Give me a proper port or a working emulator.

    I thought Fable 2 was trash, but it did have enough fun elements to be worth a single playthrough.

    It's like Skyrim, but with actual things of interest.

    Cloud? Absolutely DISGUSTING!

    Don't support this anti-consumer bullshit. Don't support a model that inherently makes game preservation impossible. Fuck cloud services. Download to your hard drive or bust.

    the only thing Fable 2 has got going for it is that it isn't Fable 3

    still would play a proper pc version, though, just for the memberberries

    I played Fable 1 when I was a little younger and tried to replay it last year. Man. It was pretty much crazy in a negative way. I liked it when I was younger, tho. Never played Fable 2.

    That's not possible here though. (Unless they make a full emulator)

    This is the use of Cloud to play games on different systems. I mean a proper PC version would still be preferable, but this is the one (possible exception of savegames) case of Cloud use that has a point. In itself this use doesn't have an influence on game preservation either. Fuck services like Stadia though.

    Then don't play or use a third party emulator, if one exists for that platform yet.

    Use Xenia and emulate it - black and purple textures are just a bonus.

    Just bite the bullet and get a used XBONE if you really want to play 360 exclusives. They run in 1080p/60 fps on it anyway. Even ultra poor fags like me can afford one.
