No Fable III Windows Demo

The post by Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson which included an announcement of a Windows demo for Fable III has been edited to say this plan has been cancelled, as it now says: "Iíve been informed that a Fable III PC demo is no longer scheduled." Though that indicates a change in plans, a story on IncGamers adds a little confusion to the mix, as they say they were told by Lionhead that there was never a plan for a Windows demo in the first place, and that this is all a misunderstanding. Since the blog and Lionhead are both owned by Microsoft, it's hard to understand how such confusion could arise, but there you have it.

This needs to be posted in every Fable III thread...

That video is fucking awful.

1) Gifting items isn't like he portrays it. Trading items in co-op is, maybe, I never tried it, but this isn't something most people will ever even see in the game.
2) The breadcrumb trail that he talks about can be turned off. I actually prefer to play the game without it on at all.
3) Travel takes like 10 seconds, tops. Just go to the map, choose the area, and walk around.
4) With the game installed to the Xbox's drive, most of those loading screens didn't show up or were so short you didn't have time to read the text on them. It wasn't a big deal, and it won't be on PC either.
5) Melee combat isn't useless. He's not using the block breaker in the video and then complaining that they just block everything... melee is the easiest way to beat most things, really, especially late in the game. There are some cool looking finishers, too.
6) He complains combat is too easy when all his videos have a co-op partner making it easier, which he complains about in another point anyway... well, duh? It's not a hard game, but alone there's some challenge there against things like a Balverine surprise attack or some large bandit groups later on. All the Fable games were like this.

And so on, and so on. I love Fable 1. Fable 2 was really disappointing to me. Fable 3 was fun, though, and I enjoyed it. The story was better, the combat is better, there's an actual ending, etc...I have no idea how someone could love Fable 2 and bash Fable 3 for doing mostly the same things.

It's more like 1 than 2 in a lot of ways, and that was awesome to me.
