The combat was fine for the early 2000's but it hasn't aged well. I'd prefer if a remake / re-imagining be an action RPG. Than again I've never been a big fan of turn-based RPGs...unless it has Pokemon in the title.  

Yeah, I definitely don't see EA keeping the D20 combat if they do give us a KOTOR reboot. Turn based RPG's are largely a thing of the past now, outside of Japan, and even Japan moves further and further away from them these days. I would expect a reboot to have Mass Effect like 3rd person shooting for gun characters, and something very similar to Jedi Fallen Order for the melee vibroblade and eventual lightsaber combat, once you get to the Jedi Temple on Dantooine. Would like to see them implement some good Ebon Hawk space combat sections as well if possible. 

Ya...I don't want that at all. I'd much rather they go the route of something like PoE2 where you can choose between real time with pause, or just straight up turn based.

I believe Bioware did that with Dragon Age: Inquisition, but barely anybody used the turn based mode, most played it as an action RPG. They might give options like that for Dragon Age 4 and the KOTOR reboot, but I would be surprised if they do since so few used it. 

Of course, we don't even know if Bioware is doing this leaked KOTOR reboot, the leak didn't say. As far as we know, Bioware is busy working on Dragon Age 4, a revamp of Anthem, and probably the next SWTOR expansion, I don't know if they're large enough after laying off their Montreal studio in 2017 to work on all of that plus a KOTOR reboot that has to release before the Star Wars deal expires in mid 2023, so if the leak is true, it might be developed by a different EA studio. Could be the EA Vancouver Star Wars game that Jason Schreier leaked awhile back, but I have a feeling they are the ones doing that High Republic Star Wars game that was leaked to be part of the upcoming Project Luminous multimedia project. Respawn is supposedly working on a sequel to Jedi Fallen Order, Medal of Honor VR, plus something Titanfall related, (and of course ongoing Apex Legends support) so it won't be them. Criterion is doing the next Need For Speed, so it won't be them. EA just announced that they're moving Ghost Games away from development to become an engineering support studio, so it can't be them. Maybe EA Motive, they have yet to release a game. EA Montreal is a possibility as well.

Fable II is the best by far, followed by III and then the first one. I played the anniversary edition a while ago and it was still very good but aged a bit too much.

I also can't shake the slight disappointment when playing it on original Xbox. I didn't read any gaming forums and I had no idea about the game. I read the back of the box and it said something about how every decision shapes the world around you.

Needles to say, it wasn't anything like that :P

Never understood the hate Fable III got.



With the success of Spider-Man I have no doubt that Sony will try to snap up another exclusive Marvel Title, MS will likely not even bother.

If MS was going to make a game based on a Marvel character, they should do a Daredevil game that continues the story where the Netflix show left off. Bring back Charlie Cox and the rest of the main cast. Fans would go nuts.

Fable III isn't nearly as bad some say, but I understand why people were not happy with it. The menu and inventory system. It took way too long to get what you needed. The last bit being King was disappointing. Peter made it seem like being the king was half of the game when it really wasn't. The game was too easy. There was no real consequence for dying and then you come back right away. 

The parts I did enjoy included the main story leading up to being the king was great. The writing was on point. Some of the side quest were really unique and fun. The DLC was also really good. 



I liked the new continent in Fable 3. The game definitely isn't as bad as some say it is. I might actually like it a bit more than Fable 1 overall.

Unique and fun, that's a good description of it. Can't think of another game like Fable III. They had some clever ideas and good writing indeed.

I didn't know what Peter said about it, so I wasn't expecting any King stuff. It was a pleasantsurprise, like a nice extra to me. DLC was good.

A very good game I'd say.

I'm gonna be that guy and say that the original Fable was the best.

I agree, especially when playing Anniversary with the Lost Chapters included.
