Shane Kim has been getting a lot of coverage at this year's DICE summit, and it's not just because he's got a thousand-watt smile that lights up a room. Microsoft has been pretty cagey about 2008 so far, and it seems like, thanks to Kim's hinting, the first details of a schedule for the year are j...

Okay, we might as well face it, we're not going to make it into Fable 2 as an NPC. That honor will go to exceedingly generous and wealthier people than us. How about this then: how would you like your very own title of dishonor to make it into Fable 2? See, in the first game, if you got enough peop...

Sure, it's tough to break into video games, but what about actually being a digital, non-breathing, non-playable character part of a virtual world? Unless you're a celebrity, such as Kristen Bell, or an athlete like, uh ... Slash, average humans like us have little or no chance to ever be "Annoying...

Peter Molyneux says it all the time. When you play Fable 2, he wants you to really feel something.

To be honest, we'd really like these Lionhead video diaries a lot more if they found Peter Molyneux under the covers with a flashflight and a video camerea, speaking in hushed whispers, gabbing about how so and so said this or that and, oh yeah, Fable 2's one-button combat is a pretty neat idea. So...
