Oh yeah, about that patch! Fable II developers haven't forgotten the bug-ridden masses, and are now finalising a patch that should wipe out most if not all issues keeping players from enjoying the game.
Better late than never I say. The patch, promised in late October, is now nearing finalisation, and will offer sweeping fixes for the game's most nagging problems. Targeted for elimination are bugs affecting the Monk Quest, the Guild Cave chest, the unresponsive ship captain in the Spire, the empty furniture shop in Bowerstone, and much more. No longer will your child be chosen as an assassination target, allowing you to leave them at home secure in the knowledge that they and the children from all of your other families are safe and sound.
