    I got my two Luciens (which I'd be happy to trade to someone who needs them) from the shooting range in Westfield as a second prize.

    Please add me to the list too

    Majestic Goat - AiroValeth
    Awesome, can you add me to the list

    DozingDragon - DozingDragon

    Making a note of these so I can do it when I get home from work. Much easier there than here.

    Also, it upsets me being on msn here at work and seeing people at home playing Fable 2 :(
    Besides that though? Not bad at all. I would even say I prefer it to Fable 1, another game that I liked and hated at the same time.

    You don't know what this means to me, Xeno. I'm thinking of putting it in the OP.

    Speaking about the celery, my character is no longer fat. 8-)8-)

    Is there anywhere other than Bowerstone Market to get this stuff? I spent like "8 weeks" last night trying to get my character thinner, and the bitch just kept running out of celery. Very annoying.

    Also, for example, if I go to a bookstore and I see "Dog Treasure Hunting Part I" is there any way at all to know if I've actually already bought that before or not? I'm pretty sure i've bought some of the same things like 4 times now, pretty goddamn frustrating.

    If anyone can do a melee chain on command: How the fuck? I just want to know. I've tried everything.

    I finally figured it out last night.

    Basically you need to tap X at the end of your previous sword swing, once you start it up and get around 5 to 8 swings it starts speeding up and you have to tap a lot faster. Sometimes it is really hard to do when you are in the middle of like 12 guys, but once you get the steady tap down to start it, it's pretty each to start a chain.

    ...that is of course until a mob decides to block you... ugh.



    Oh hey, i'm Wavechaser48 on Xbox live for co-op if I can get added to the list.

    Thanks.

    In Bopwerstone there's one outside the furniture shop, assume that's the one you're using. In Oakfield there's one around the farm wood chopping job sign. The better the economy of a place the more celery the food produce guy will stock because they'll have one piece for each star rating.

    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.

    A making of DVD.

    Basically a standard "Limited Edition" game. Generally speaking most don't come with anything more then that.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
