    Co-op is available throughout Fable 2 - you can pull in another player at any time in the game. Josh comes in and can use his hero from Fable 2. Up the top you can see Molyneux - "The Molynator" and his Gamercard, while Josh is there too. "Any experience and gold Josh earns while he's co-oping in my game, he can bring back into his game."

    Or "The Penny Arcade game."

    But that would make entirely too much sense.

    And would go over the character limit for thread titles.

    sheesh, you would almost think i didnt know what i was doing...

    What about "PA game"?

    Anything Molyneux promises is to be taken with a bucket of salt.

    So, in Fable 2 you don't earn gold through quests, you do it through doing jobs and gambling?

    Sounds tedious.

    First he is talking about money. You don't get it for doing quests. You get it for doing jobs and for gambling. Molyneux shows a pub game as an example. It is similar to roulette but with dice.

    So nope.

    FanciestWalnut, I didn't say the entire game would be shit.

    That is retarded. Doing jobs for money was boring in Shenmue, and I doubt it will be fun in this game.

    That does seem a bit silly. What do you get in reward for quests then? Love or Hatred?

    Nevertheless, I will believe it only when I am playing it at home on my own 360.

    As long as Fable 2 is fun, I'm not going to criticise their decisions. Co-op? Hell yes.

    edit: you probably get experience for doing quests. Rather than finding particularly affluent rats and spiders, who happen to be carrying bags of gold.

    Buhhh...

    Why would you compare doing jobs in Fable 2 to the job in Shenmue... I think it's an interesting idea, but we'll have to wait and see what the "jobs" are. I'm actually pretty damn excited about the game.

    Fair enough, we don't know how this will work. But if you choose to be evil, even if you can loot gold from the victims of your quest, you wouldn't take a mission out of the evilness of your heart.

    I would imagine some such jobs would be "Good sir, this nearby land is infested with miscreants, would you please slay them for me, I will pay you 1000 gold!"

    As opposed to "I will pay you 100 gold", and you get 100 gold from each monster you kill. There are 9 monsters.

    So the second dude can't bring his dog in co-op? I'm hoping this means that

    A) The dog isn't essential and you have other means of getting whatever information it provides, and

    B} You can get rid of the dog without repricussion.

    Wouldn't that be a quest? That was also how the original Fable worked. You got a quest/job, went to the area, did it, and then got the gold. You could sometimes get stuff from dead enemies, but I don't remember there being stuff that was worth much other than some gems.
