    man, this game was over to soon for me
    (well, not technically over, I finished the Crucible and they tell me not to get on the boat)
    I plan on spending a day or two on sidequests

    Hmmm I got on the boat just fine and am still running. Maybe we are talking about different parts though.

    I'd do that.

    I don't know squat about a Live update, still haven't interneted my 360.

    Me > :chair: < the internets

    Ya, I think I need to get this game again. I rented it and played it nonstop. Maybe after I test in Feb I will.

    What do you guys prefer?

    Fable 2 or Mass Effect?

    I have Fable 2, but I got so many games to play on both PS3 and 360 I haven't gotten around to it.

    i took it when Hammer and Theresa(?) said that I must be sure I'm done in Albion before I get on the boat, that this was a one way trip to the endgame

    correct ?

    in other words, once you get on the boat for the Spire (immediately after completing the Crucible) that it locks you into the Spire quest ... which is essentially the end game ?
    she tells you to make sure noone else needs your help and that Garth(?) "isn't going anywhere"

    that's not really a fair comparison
    these 2 games are really nothing alike

    Mass Effect is an RPG in a class with games like Oblivion / Fallout3 / Kotor
    you start with a guy, add attribute points, level up, have unlimited save slots, etc...

    in Fable 2 .... you start with a guy ... that's about as close as it comes to the others. there is only 1 save slot and it's transparent, you never actually "level up" - you are awarded 4 different types of EXP orbs to use on new abilities (skill / will / strength / gen.)


    I liked the hell out of Mass Effect. to me I could kinda feel like I was playing KotorIII ...... Fallout kinda felt like playing Oblivion, as in coming from the same studio

    but Fable feels like playing ............ idk really, i'm not sure I've played a game quite like this. to me it has many unique qualities not found in many 'turn-based' / 'card-battle' / FPS-RPG type games

    it almost feels like a platformer



    FableII won a couple of the GOTY awards that GTAIV didn't and rightly so.
    I started FableII immediatley after finishing Fallout3 ,so the bar was set pretty high, and I can honestly say that I have been entertained non-stop with it, whereas many games would have felt flat after a game like F3

    if you have yet to start either Mass Effect or Fable2, play Fable first. you can get in and out of it relatively quickly. Mass Effect will have you chained to it for weeks

    the reason I brought the update up is that it is what has caused so many problems with the game

    i had to clear the cache, install the game to the HDD, save to the internal MU, before being able to play lock-up free

    so, if you still have it once you get the interwebs, you might want to tell it to stick it in it's *** when it tells you there's an update


    fwiw, I have re-downloaded the update and it still works fine.

    Too late. I'm hooked on Mass Effect.
