Fable 2 has finally clicked with me. The smartest move I made was not bothering to perform stupid gestures and pull ridiculous expressions for all those annoying villagers. With that tedium out of the way, I'm making steady progress. My heroine is focused on ranged attacks, so I've upgraded all her Skill abilities alongside Force Push. It seems to be working a treat.
In terms of the moral "choices", I've found myself mostly doing good deeds, although my combination assassin/bandit outfit tends to scare people off. Which is fine since I don't want to talk to them anyway. The quest structure still confuses me: why do all these quests keep appearing in my log before I've even heard about them? How does my heroine know these quests even exist? It doesn't make a lot of sense. And because the map is utterly worthless I've reluctantly turned the "breadcrumbs" on to its dimmest setting. Later this morning I'm interviewing Dave Matthews from Monolith. We'll be discussing F.E.A.R. 2, so if you've got any questions, let me know and I'll try to ask them. Finally, later tonight I plan to download The Maw on XBLA and give that a whirl. Anyone else picking it up?
