This is my first ever impressions of anything so bare with me. Ok here we go! I preordered FABLE at EGgames, and usually when you pre order stuff, what ever bonus material they have, they give it to you right away, but this time i was told that the dvd bonus material was going to ship with my product. I said aight i can handle that. few weeks ago, i went to BBB forums and i read that when you pre order the game at gamestop you get the dvd at the same time. i heard this and was pumped.

The next day i rushed to ebgames and inquired about it again and they said they still don't have it. the next morning, which is today, they called me and said i should come pick up my dvd. i again rushed there grabbed the dvd from the lady at the store and came home. Upon arriving at the house i realized that some had tempered with the case, the seal was broken off and all. well i said to myself the dang thing is free so i wasn't going to cause any commontions like i would have if it was the real game. any way i poped the dvd in and saw all the features. it was not very long, but interesting none the less. it was about 25 minutes max.

Aight i know you guys do not care about the means that i got the dvd you just want the contents right well ok here you go.

The dvd contains:
FABLE FEATURES

1: Hero
2: Art Direction
is aight could be better IMO
3: Animation
4: Music
the music is terrific, come on it is DANNY ELFMAN we are talking about here, would you expect anything less. fantastic best rpg game with best music composer together under one roof! daammmmmmm :bang:
5: Story

AWesome can't wait. But I think you'll be eating your words. No way in hell Fable sales will crush Halo 2.

I agree. A lot of the people who own an Xbox don't own it for RPGs. That's for good reason too, since there barely are any, and there are only a few on the horizon. FPSes on the other hand are abundant.

Fable will probably sell well, but it won't touch HALO 2. HALO 2 will easily become one of the best selling games of all time.

I also got the Bonus DVD with pre-order and my main reason for getting it was the Sudeki demo and I must say it owns. I love the combat system and the game as a whole. I can't wait to pick it up in a few weeks.

btw, You don't normally jump in RPGs.

Where are the impressions? Those are the facts, man, just what's on the disc. :p

Yeah, anyhow, I've watched it probably 5 or 6 times just for the in-game action. Game is looking smooth and there are tons of ways to customize your character. The sheer number of player character models was astonishing.

And they showed some chicken kicking... :hail:

Would be nice though to hear what others thoughts on the Fable featurette were.

I have a feeling that Fable will be a sleeper if you can believe it, I mean, I know its pretty well know in the Xbox world, and for that fact, most of the console world, but not to the super mainstream extent. I think this is the kind of game whose sales will grow continuously each week...I think after the first week, there will be a decline, but come December, I see the sales growing larger and larger due to the holiday season and word of mouth.

Zero, does Wal-Mart even sell M-rated games? I mean, you can lop off heads and kick 'em around if you want. And apparently, some of the stuff you have to do to become truly, truly evil is so horrific that the average person will most likely shy away. Like the www.fablegame.com site says, "This is no fairytale."

And blackiee2002, where ya gettin' your dates, man? This is straight from their FAQ:

"When will it be out? updated 2nd June
Fable will be out in September 2004 in all NTSC (USA) territories and in October 2004 for PAL (EUROPE) territories." (http://www.lhtimes.com/fablefaq.html)

Well, that doesn't really prove either of our dates. Seems like they've changed it, so you might be right.

And I'm w/ MixMasta. I don't think the game is gonna explode and sales records, but I could care less. Sales figures mean nothing to me. Panzer Dragoon Orta and Metal Arms sold like crap, but are two games I will own for as long as I have an Xbox, and will enjoy and remember for a long, long time.

Man, I love Panzer Dragoon Orta. Its one of my favorite games. I should look into Metal Arms, it was five bucks at CC so I can probably find it cheap somewhere like EB.

Got the disk yesterday also, and the first thing I noticed about the disk is that it's layed out exactly like the OXM Demo Disks - odd.

Watching the vid now -give me a few so I can pwn Sudeki and then I'll post some insights.

blackiee, I think I trust the actual development team for a release date more then I'd trust EBGames...and they are sticking to September 2004, which you'd know if you'd read my last post. :)

I'm interested to hear what our Ghost Admin thinks of the DVD, though.

Not much last I heard, but I'm sure he'll stop by and post. Think he was a little sauced when describing it to me.

I was sober, til I started watching the Fable vids, then instead of falling asleep from boredom, I started to get a tad buzzed and played the Sudeki demo and wake myself up. The demo wasn't bad, but I don't see myself getting this game, honestly. Eh, the vids were nice on Fable, but I've seen most of them and really didn't feel like sitting through them again.
