    Oh, and thanks to whoever was suggesting to use the Raise Dead spell in order to distract enemies. :^:

    It made things sooooo much easier. Level 2 raise dead, charge up to level 5 time stop, run around and wreck everyone's shit or sit in the back and blow their heads off.

    Seriously, the raise dead trick kicks ass.

    Yeah, my code will be emailed to me... in 10 business days. Everyone I know who has the regular edition of the game is entering their email address as well. Between that and the fact that they're giving away the pub games for free... what the fuck did I pay an extra $10 for?

    A making of DVD.

    Basically a standard "Limited Edition" game. Generally speaking most don't come with anything more then that.
    Which is why I don't normally bother buying limited edition versions. This one, however, was advertised as having more stuff. Not only was the bonus stuff not present, not only do I need to wait two weeks after buying the game to get it, but now, they're giving it away to other people.

    I think I have a right to be a little ticked off.

    I'm here to tell you about voting. Imagine you're locked in a huge underground nightclub filled with sinners, whores, freaks and unnameable things that rape pit bulls for fun. And you ain't allowed out until you all vote on what you're going to do tonight [. . .] So you vote for television, and everyone else, as far as your eye can see, votes to fuck you with switchblades. That's voting. You're welcome.

Head to that part of Oakfield and your dog should freak out and start running toward a dig spot.

    Hi, I'd like to know roughly how long the main questline is. A friend of mine bought Fable II on friday and finished it yesterday. He doesn't play games fast at all so that tells me it's probably 5-6 hours, he couldn't tell how long he had played either.

    The main questline is not very long at all, and if you stick to it you'll finish the game pretty fast. On the other hand, the main quest isn't really the point of Fable II... it's that you can just spend hours and hours screwing around and just enjoy the world and all there is to do in it.

    I easily logged about 30 hours of playtime before finishing it myself, and now I'm playing through it again, because things are different as a char of opposite alignment and gender. :D

    Okay, that sounds better. I guess he just rushed through it, I'll check it out then!

    Fuck. I have FO3 sitting at home, but I haven't finished this yet... Like, at all. Now begs the question: Finish this or start on FO3.

    I know I should finish this but... FUCKING FALLOUT3! I've been waiting since two or three days after Fallout 2.

    That sucks. Any chance the people who didn't buy the LE won't get the stuff? Also, they should've dropped the price down. I paid £40 for mine, and that's basically the same as the standard edition.

    So last night I went to bloodstone, bought a house so I could sleep with a hooker which was cool, (okay mostly I needed somewhere to sleep so I could buy stuff from the stores during the day). Wake up the next day, my crazy ass wife shows up.

    Um, why is this crazy bitch following me around?

    Since i'm basically a saint on this character, any way to get rid of this 'family' without killing them? Or should I just kill them and atone for it later?

    I have the LE version and it came with a card, however I'm unclear how to get the pub games.

    Another thing that bugs me is I don't get any of the equipment from doing the story lines on the website, all I ever get is the weapon and armor. Not a big deal, but still I don't see why I wouldn't be able to get it.

    I spent some time last night seeing how many ladies I could get into bed at once, turns out 8 not including me. The funny part is it only counted as one extramarital affair. I got 7 or 8 std's out of it though. I also spent time going through a lot of the stuff that I skipped over. The main story is a little on the short side, but I skipped so many quests and side dungeons I still have hours left to play not including collections and gargoyle shooting.

    Have her follow you into an area with enemies and let them get killed. Problem solved.

    Don't murder her, just let her get killed. It won't effect your alignment. I noticed with the furniture she hardly ever had any. Try sleeping for 7 days and going back.

    She's just had the book since I started playing the game, never anything else.

    I think I need to end her.

    If you finish this game in 6 hours, you aren't doing nearly enough farting, drinking, and philandering with the local ladies.

    Where does it say pub games are free? I noticed codes on the dev site, but that's not like a flat out free thing, it's a handful of freebees.

    Also is there any real way for them to tell if you got the LE or not in that signup? Because uh...

    That's a good idea, thanks. I thought it went back after you put the rent back to normal, but I guess not.

    Nobody knows anything about the Shadow Court? I don't want red eyes of rape. :( Oh the Lionhead forums are telling me that's the intended consequence, whoops. Someone here said it was a glitch.
