    Just got it from Blockbuster. Traded in a few games and didn't pay a penny for Fable II. :rock: Gonna be playing this all weekend.

    From what everyones saying, it really does live up to what the big man has been saying :p

    Just completed it this morning (all nighter) and the ending was a real let down for me. I won't say why as I expect most of you haven't been playing it for the last ~20 hours and aren't there yet.

    Did anyone else have an issue with the body morphs?

    I had to save/quit and reload to get my horns for some reason, otherwise I was just a pale gray with red eyes. The Glowing will tats took their sweet time to appear, too. Look ****ing cool though.

    Oh, and the dog flips between the starting colours and the evil colours sometimes, too.

    I have a quick question about something here. I saw in a lot of preview videos that if you stand in one place for a few seconds a big bright twinkling guide line shows up and baby sits you to your next objective. Is there any way to turn that off? I find it kind of annoying. Plus I'm the kind of person that actually likes wandering aimlessly finding things in the world that most people would miss if they just run from point A to point B. I remember wandering the Hylian Field in Ocarina of Time for hours on end, turning up every rock and searching every corner for secrets.

    You can select what quest the glowing trail points to but I'm not sure you can turn it off completely. I agree though, I've found myself just sprinting around following the line like I'm wearing blinkers rather than exploring the world.

    It's actually quite useful, with the lack of the mini map it's quite easy to get lost, so if it weren't there I'd be contantly hitting start to look at the map to check where I was. It's just really a magical sat nav system to make getting to you objective a bit easier if you've already explored/don't want to.

    I've noticed there's a **** ton of disc access in this game, ripping it to the hard drive when they release that feature would help a lot IMO.

    However, I'm absolutely loving it.

    Yeah, I noticed that too. It seems like it's streaming data from the disc as you walk around. The only problem I've noticed with that is that it's possible to outpace your glowy guide thingy because it doesn't update quite quickly enough.

    Loving the game, though - far more than I did Fable 1. It's not as groundbreaking as Molyneux said it would be (but when is it ever?), but it's good fun nevertheless.

    Yeah I've noticed that a few times when I was following it, can be a bit annoying.

    Sigh... add me to the cry list too. My copy seems to be faulty... either gives me a disc unrecognisable message or plays that white "put this in a xbox" message. Bleh...
