Revolution doesn't come free, as any, uh, revolter (revolutioneer?) will tell you. On May 17, Fable 3 will launch on the Windows and bring with it a tale of two royal siblings vying for the crown -- but will you be able to cast off the shackles of oppression and fight for freedom? Probably not. I...

Lionhead community moderator Matthew Allen recently took some time off of moderating the, uh, community in order to mock up what Fable might have looked like "sometime around 1985." In short, it looks an awful lot like an old Sierra adventure game and that's just fine by us. Unlike the other Fab...

Three: it's just a nice, round number. You have a beginning, middle and end. Good things are also said to come in threes, but according to Lionhead's Peter Molyneux, Fable 3 doesn't necessarily close the book on Albion and the franchise. During an Inside Xbox segment at Eurogamer Expo (transcribed ...

Albion has entered its industrial age. Not that I need the helpful, disembodied voice to tell me that in Fable 3's opening, of course.
