    Transmogrification: DON'T DO IT!

    Just when I thought the disappointments of Fable were pretty much over, BAM! I get a gigantic one, and it's PERMANENT.

    After braving the bowels of Castle Fairfax, I'm confronted with trying out this stupid potion. So I save the game, and try it, in case I wanted to reload and change my mind.

    Nope! The almighty autosave SCREWED ME AGAIN. I don't know what level of genius is required to assume that a player needs only one game slot at a time, but now I'm the opposite sex, and I'm supposed to be impressed with this?

    The only thing this potion did was make me not want to play this stupid game ever again. Thanks again, PM and Lionhead. You failed again. I seriously hope that in the future you employ some experienced staff that know how to make a game enjoyable and positively memorable.

    I'll be looking forward to your next batch of lies regarding Fable 3. What will you do with this sequel? Allow the player not to save the game at all? Oh, that will surely dazzle.

    Hey, you were informed of what the potion would do to you, and the autosave + one save slot is there for a reason, so every action truly has a consequence.

    Don't blame PM, if you were going to be disappointed with the results of the potion, then why use it in the first place? You could have quite easily taken the potion then left the area without drinking it, so the potion disolves, I fail to see how they did something wrong when you were well aware of the risks.

    In short, stop complaining, you never had to drink the potion, it was your choice to do so, and you have to live with it, hence "for every action, there is a consequence."

    I actually like the autosave after practically ever big decision thing, makes you have to deal with your choices and their consequences. Just like they intended. So agreed, stop complaining.

    Wow.
    You can't just... get over it?
    Sure the autosave screws you over, but you'd think after the whole game of witnessing the auto-save take action all the time, you'd know not to do it.
    Why would you want to reload? In case you're a woman/man and it's not what you thought it would be...
    But, to call Lionhead and PM inexperienced?
    Thats about the dumbest thing I've heard.

    You fail. I can't say anything more that wouldn't be repeating what the others have said.

    Hahahaahahahahahahaaa!

    You sir, are an idiot.
    You really took a chance there didn't you?

    Also just wondering. Did you have a beard before you took it? If so did it remain when you changed gender? Oh and! Did you have a family? That would have been a surprise for your wife(s) and Children!

    And about the consequences thing. I couldn't be bothered to save the temple of light, and thought nothing would come of it. Later, i came back to Oakfield (which was my favourite place) and found it ruined. I was ****ed off, but i had to live with it because i made that choice. It made the game experience better for me i suppose.

    I hastily moved to brightwood, Farmer Giles's farm to be specific. :D

    Dude... No one made you drink the potion. The game was touted for every choice having a consequence. Seems like they did a good job to me.

    Re: Transmogrification: DON'T DO IT!

    you sir, are a twat.
    did you not care to think in that brief moment of stupidity, that when you drink a gender-changing potion, it might actually change your gender? and if so, surely you might have elaborated a bit on that? hmmmm...say you were playing a 60 year old man, and you drink the ACTUALLY GENDER-CHANGING POTION, it will....
    CHANGE YOU INTO A 60 YEAR OLD GIRL!!!!
    it really isn't rocket science
    (note, the spoiler isn't really a spoiler, i was just showing how obvious a gender changing potion is.)

    I have a few extra Transmogrification potions, if you'd like to change back. If you have the 6 dolls, I still need that achievement.

    Send me a (text) message on xbox live if you're interested.

    How do you have extra Transmogrification potions... They dissapear once you leave the dungeon.

    Re: Transmogrification: DON'T DO IT!

    I think the only problem with the one save is if my Xbox will overheat when it saves, and there is no back up :P But other than that, I am glad it is there. In Fable 1 I was perfect, just a little angel. In here, I can't erase those haunting decisions. When I make a tough choice, I feel the impact, because I know that it is final. It gave me that feeling I haven't had in awhile. Having a permanent choice. You can't take it back. This is what should have been done. Now my character is shaped. He seems real. I have my faults, I have my pros/cons, and all in all, my character is completely unique. The way it should be.

    Re: Transmogrification: DON'T DO IT!

    FAIL.

    Fable II is epic win. PM didnt lie about anything. people just misunderstood things. cuz thats what people do.

    and having only one save slot and autosaves is a brilliant idea. for every coice, a consequence, and NO GOING BACK ON IT. honestly, what did you think would happen when you drank a sex change potion? it warns you straight up that this is your one and only chance to drink the potion, and it will work, and it is not reversable. dont bash the game for the choice you made yourself.

    the only bad thing about fable 2 is a few glitches. but name one game that is glitch free. you cant, cuz nothing is perfect.

    im so sick of people bashing the game for not being exactly what they invisioned it would be. if you dont like it, shut up and dont play it. and if your so smart and know a million ways to improve it, then go make your own damn game if your so smart.
