Fable Trilogy which includes Fable Anniversary,Fable 2 and Fable 3 will be out the same day as Fable Anniversary stand alone,February 7th

The listing appeared on the Xbox Marketplace, where it noted that it "offers these games together at a discounted rate over individual purchases." Furthermore, it added that this collection won't receive any enhancements to the earlier releases of Fables 2 and 3. "The games in this bundle are available as individual downloads in the Xbox Games marketplace and are exactly the same," Microsoft stated.

From the listing it isn't clear that it contains Fable Anniversary, but a Microsoft spokesperson cleared that up in a statement to Eurogamer. "The Fable Trilogy bundle in the Xbox Marketplace is real and in development. The bundle will include full Xbox 360 titles for Fable Anniversary, Fable 2, and Fable 3." the publisher said. "We're excited to share official details regarding the release soon on"

I will certainly look into this,i enjoyed all 3 games and i am looking forward to Anniversary...Although remember Fable 3 was free last year through Games with Gold offer,and also look to see if it includes all the DLC for 2 and 3,although i don't recall a 'GOTY' edition of Fable 3 so i reckon it will just be the stand alone games

Alpha invites are going out.   You can sign up here

Looks to be XB1 and maybe 360 only

I just signed up and it said

Your application to participate is complete. If you are selected to take part in our upcoming test, you will receive an email in the coming days with a unique code and instructions on how to download and access the game on Xbox One. Thank you!

No mention of the 360

either way after i signed up i noticed i was on the USA page,so likely i wont be selected anyway

I really could do with demoing this game first if there is no single player,I like the sound of it but its still a bit of a leap to buy an online only game for me

well this will make you all feel better*

Apparently Ed Helms is playing Frank Drebin,no relation to Lt Frank Drebin

This is not a reboot,rather a continuation with another Frank Drebin

He confirmed that the plan is to write the new film in the Zucker/Abrahams/Zucker style, saying "we're trying to fit in 100 jokes a page". "We're very much embracing the style", he said. To our knowledge, none of the original ZAZ team are involved, however.

As for the recasting of Drebin, Garant revealed that "our take is that Ed Helms is Frank Drebin, no relation. That's how he introduces himself", adding later that "we're making it pretty clear that he's not Leslie Nielsen. Those are just too big of shoes to fill but we're trying to do as good as those"

I enjoyed the series,but think Series 3 may have been the weakest

Michael Douglas playing Hank Pym

Which means Rudd is playing the younger version, unless there's some weird narration flashback thing.

Rudd is playing Scott Lang

Director and co-screenwriter Edgar Wright explained some time ago his plan for the film which he confirmed yesterday. "So you actually do a prologue where you see Pym as Ant-Man in action in the '60s, in sort of a 'Tales to Astonish' mode basically, and then the contemporary, sort of flash-forward, is Scott Lang's story, and how he comes to acquire the suit, how he crosses paths with Henry Pym, and then, in an interesting sort of Machiavellian way, teams up with him".

Youtube has been playing up for the past few weeks on Chrome for me,when i click a link to go to Youtube it stutters along,then stops a few seconds in but the sound carries on,when i try to close Youtube it takes a while for it to close,sometimes not closing until the video(sound)has finished)

This only happens on Google Chrome,Youtube works fine on Firefox and Internet Explorer

I have disabled various plugins in the chrome://plugins/ page without any luck,and my Google Chrome says its up to date

Any ideas?

First DLC pack out 28th January

This is reportedly a GameStop promotional poster dating Call of Duty: Ghosts' first DLC installment, Onslaught for Jan. 28.

It describes four new maps—Fog, Bayview, Containment and Ignition—and two bonus weapons. Episode one of the Extinction-mode narrative announced back in mid-December also is included.

Due the first week of Next Month,this game has gone gold and here are the pre-order bonuses


Peiratēs Pre Order Pack

Peiratēs Outfit: Peiratēs was a famous plunderer, known for travelling uncharted waters to take entire cargo ships hostage for their most expensive items. He was also known by the name "Pete" in less formal circles.

Peiratēs Cutlass: A weapon used at sea needs to be both practical and effective. Peiratēs spent years refining this weapon so that the hook could be used to catch fish, the tip could be used to eat fish, and the blade could be used to slit a man's throat.

Snowspire Pre Order Pack

Snowspire Guard Outfit: Made from genuine horse hair, this outfit is said to calm even the most vocal of criminals.

The Jackarse: An age-old popular pasttime was run by a chap named Jack, who used to slap people around the face with a dead fish until they fell onto their arse. The rest, as they say, is history...

Apollo's Pre Order Pack

Apollo's Outfit: Apollo is the pseudonym for the leader of The Grey Company, the man responsible for monitoring Lady Grey's financial investments. As fearsome as that may sound, he had a reputation for being incredibly nice, often using his own money to bail out any villager that couldn't afford that months rent.

Apollo's Crossbow: Based on a centuries old concept, Apollo wanted to create a modern crossbow with the feel of a relic from the past - and thus this crossbow was born. Dependable in combat, but also pretty tasty to look at.

February 7th-Europe

There were rumours a few weeks ago but now Season 5 has been confirmed will be the last season


Boardwalk Empire, it's been confirmed, returns to HBO in September 2014 with what will be its fifth and final season.

Creator Terence Winter had this to say on the announcement: "After much discussion with my creative team and HBO, we’ve decided to wrap up the series after such a great run and look forward to bringing it to a powerful and exciting conclusion.”

It's regrettable for fans that Steve Buscemi-starring prohibition-era drama is bowing out after next year, especially after what was arguably the show's greatest season, but five is at least a decent run. It didn't do Breaking Bad any harm to say its goodbyes at that point.

I still have half of season 4 on my DVR to catch up with(last episode of season 4 on TV tonight for UK)

144  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1]Respawn's Titanfall on: January 08, 2014, 08:58:04 AM
Titanfall multiplayer has a 6 Vs 6 limit


I am a bit disappointed with that,although you do also fight alongside AI,so that's something

Despite negative responses from some fans following this tweet, Zampella assured players that the 6v6 limitation was a decision made by the development team after substantial playtesting.

"It is incredibly fun, we did a lot of testing," he explained. "It is all about what we found most fun. There are other games with higher player counts if that's your metric."

Stressing that the decision was not based on hardware or network limitations, he added: "We had [the player count] higher at points in testing, this felt best." Zampella went on to clarify: "That's [the] humans only count. There are lots of AI, everyone can have a Titan in follow or guard mode too."

FWIW-Episode 3 next week-His Last Vow-,looks really good,and a lot more serious(so probably expect a friggin' cliffhanger again Roll Eyes)

Played a bit of COD Ghosts on XB1,annoyed that my Wolf didn't make the leap across platforms,and even though i now have the Free Fall map with the XB1 version,it never appears on the playlist,so i have still not played that map

Having a lot of fun with Forza 5,probably just at my skill level as well(in other words,if there are options to make it harder or easier then i have it on default)

I bought Peggle 2 last night through the first 5 Masters and on the last one now i think(still have the skills and trials to do though)

Put about 7 hours into Lost Odyssey over the weekend.  Some minor annoyances aside, I had forgotten how much fun this game is.  It still looks great 6 years later as well.  Hoping I can actually get all the way through this time, but with a new gaming PC arriving sometime this week, I'm sure I'll end up distracted again.  smile

Yeah,its a very long game as well(4 discs)..I have completed it once,but got distracted by Disc 4 on other playthroughs

Thanks for those who said about the External HDD coming to XB1,good to know,even if you can't put games on there,it's at least something

as for the controller,i will be getting a plug and play and just using the controller as a wired controller ..i had a wired controller for the past 3 years for 360 and loved it to pieces,no screwing about with the batteries(even the plug and plays for the 360 wouldn't last long,either the lead would stop working or the battery stopped charging,so i just got a wired controller)

I may have covered this before on here somewhere,but I have the DVD versions of the Originals from the Limited Edition collections released in 2006 they look fine,and if a company like Lowry(who did the Bond movie restorations)could get hold of them,they can polish them up even more ready for HD conversion(i have no idea how it is all done,

The Bond movies were meticulously restored by frame by frame from the original negatives.

Yup. You can't really make a HD conversion from DVDs. Increasing resolution through some kind of magic algorithm is, sadly, something that only happens in movies and TV shows. Missing data is missing data. A computer can't tell what's missing.

My point being about FOX that they HAD released the originals versions on DVD,and just 7 years(8 if you want to be fussy) ago,so they had the original negatives then,so as i said if a company like Lowry can get hold of them(meaning the original source)..etc etc,if any film needs restoring frame by frame it would be the original Star Wars trilogy,as they have been gobbled up by the Special Editions

I can't believe that Call of Duty Ghosts is nearly 40gig,WTF is up with that? doesn't look or run that much better than when i had the 360 version

And then there is Forza 5,again nearly 40gig,it makes me shudder that we are all asking for more tracks and wondering how much more space will be needed if Turn 10 do that for Forza 6

And another matter,we are what?..1 month into next gen and games are taking up 40 gig,with the Blu Ray being able to hold 50gig(That's still the case isn't it?),so sooner rather than later we could be back to 2+ discs per game,disc swapping and everything else

right?..or am i missing something?

and I am using Pin more than i did on the 360,just because i can get to stuff like Settings easier,rather than go looking for them in the apps or hope its been rotated on the Home screen

On ps4 I'm having the same thoughts. Not even two months in and I'm already only showing 242gb free...guess ill end up throwing a 1 or 2 tb drive in at some point. 1tb should have been the minimal for these drives if they require installs.

At least you can do that with the PS4,I understand you can't even use an external HDD on the One

(and if its like the 360,where 500gb is really 362gig,then 242gb after 2 months is not that bad going,with me installing Forza 5(40gb) and COD(40gb),Peggle 2(1.5gb),Dead Rising demo(7gb) and Killer Instinct(3gb) to name a few,i am probably around 270gb left)
