Pun! Sort of.

It's no secret that I've been a fan of the "Fable" series since the days when designer Peter Molynieux was still promising that it would wake you up with a foot massage and make your breakfast. I've never felt quite the resentment that a lot of people have held against the first game upon its release, when a number of promised -- and, yes, somewhat fantastic -- features had to be cut in order to make the release date.

I think the chief issue at hand was that a lot of people took the bold claims Mr. Molynieux made as marketing hype, just cooked-up ballyhoo to move the game. But if you've paid attention, you know that's not how he works; the man's out to do impossible things. If he says you can plant an acorn anywhere in the game world and it'll grow into a mighty oak over the course of a few years, by golly, that's what he was trying to do.

My feeling was, and is, that there should always be incentive for people to attempt the impossible. If they fail, well... it was impossible, wasn't it? But knowing that there's somebody out there TRYING to make your head explode with the awesomeness of their gameitude is very healthy for progress in this infant industry.

I was gonna talk about Fable 2. Outta time! Friday, then.
