Microsoft announces Fable III, episodic Fable II

Fable III will follow the player on a quest to become the king (or queen) of Fable's mystical land of Albion

At Microsoft's GamesCom press conference, it was confirmed that Fable III will be heading to the Xbox 360 with a host of new features. Lionhead's Creative Director Peter Molynuex was around to give a few words about the new project.

"We've spent a lot of time at Lionhead thinking about how we can innovate the gameplay and progress the world of the 'Fable' games for its third chapter, and we're confident that players won't second-guess what we have planned for 'Fable III.'"

Fable III will follow the player on a quest to become the king (or queen) of Fable's mystical land of Albion, and promises to bring back the moral choices that shaped the previous two Fable games.

It was also announced that Fable II, the single best selling RPG on the Xbox 360, would be seeing an interesting new approach to its release. Starting on September 29th, Microsoft will be releasing Fable II episodically via Xbox LIVE through "Fable II: Game Episodes." The first Fable II Game Episode will feature the protagonist growing from childhood to adulthood, and will then continue in four other consecutive installments.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
