Fable III on Steam

Microsoft announces Fable III will be released through Steam simultaneously with the retail launch of the RPG sequel on May 17 in North America, though obviously a game developed by Microsoft-owned Lionhead Studios and published by Microsoft Game Studios will also be sold through the Games for Windows Marketplace. A new Fable III PC Video Diary #4 is online discussing development, and the announcement notes different preorder bonuses from the distributors:

“Fable III” will be available for pre-order on both Steam and Games for Windows Marketplace starting 21 April. Fans who pre-order through Games for Windows Marketplace will receive “Fable: Lost Chapters” – the start of the Fable saga - for free! And those who purchase on Steam will receive the Rebel's Weapon & Tattoo Pack, a collection of four exclusive weapons and five exclusive tattoo sets to customize their rebel hero.

I enjoyed Fable on the original xbox. I think it was the only game I ever finished on the console before it got put away.

I'm half interested in this one however, but definitely not at release with witcher2 coming out at the same time.

Can we get a George Lucas reference, please?

Shamelessly stolen from Mr Plinkett (http://redlettermedia.com/plinkett/star-trek/star-trek-09/ )
"J.J. Abrams should have directed the prequels, and George Lucas should have directed people to their seats in the theatre."

Please, please remake Populous or Powermonger. Thanks.

Seriously, Populous rebooted, I'd be happy with the same basic isometric view and gameplay with updated graphics and controls for modern day PC's. Heck, an indie dev could even remake Populous. Please?

Based on how F3 was received, it doesn't sound like we're missing much anyway.

Quite a concession.

I wonder if older MS games will now come to Steam as well, like Halo or Age of Empires.
