A Fable to Remember
While I’m enjoying a kick about, and been scared the shit out of, 2 more xbox 360 games have been passed onto me today, that I’ve been meaning to pick up for a while:
The place is Neo-Paris. The year is 2084. Personal memories are now digitised, bought, sold and traded. The last vestiges of privacy and intimacy have been swept away in what appears to be a logical progression of the explosive growth of social networks at the start of the 21st century. The citizens themselves have acquiesced to this surveillance society in exchange for the comfort only smart technology can provide. This memory economy transfers immense power over society to just a handful of people. Remember Me is a third-person action adventure in which players assume the role of Nilin, a former elite memory hunter with the ability to penetrate people’s minds and steal or even alter their memories. The authorities, fearful of her knowledge and powers arrested Nilin and wiped her memory clean. After her escape from prison, Nilin embarks on a mission to recover her identity, helped by her last and only friend. This search for her past leads to her being hunted by the very people that created this surveillance society
Fable: The Journey
Utilize magic as a deadly weapon while defending the fate of Albion. Embark on a perilous quest to unmask the evil that threatens the land as you learn how to harness your plentiful and mysterious powers. Give up your easy-going nomadic life and become heroic as you help decide the fate of Albion. Assume the role of Gabriel and defend Albion from the dark Corruption in this story chock full of Fable’s signature wry humor. Fable: The Journey thrusts you in a role-playing experience with a host of familiar faces and foes. In this action-packed adventure you’ll form a lasting bond with your horse through an emotional journey.
As a long time Cyberpunk, and Fable fan, I have been keen to pick up both of these games from launch, but have always had something else to play… maybe one more game of football first 😉
