In what appears to be a publicity stunt for the upcoming HD re-release of Fable: The Lost Chapters, sharp-eyed players have found that Fable III is currently available on the XBLA for a grand total of zero Microsoft Points. As of writing this, the deal is still available, but there’s no guarantee it will be around for long. So for those of you with Gold Xbox Live membership, grab your copy while you still can!
Fable III was a solid release from Lionhead Studios, a fantasy journey where you grow your hero to become the King of Albion, and enjoy all the moral decision-making that comes with such an adventure and position. Also, burping in peoples faces. The game was coated in all the magic and false-promises that every Molyneux game comes dosed with, so it never quite succeeds in achieving its full potential. Still, as the old-timey adage goes, “it ain’t worth nothin’, but it’s free”, and you’ll certainly get a good few hours of enjoyment out of this.
