Win a Copy of Fable 2 - Are you Evil or Good?

Poor Billy.  He's looking for a co-op partner in Fable 2.  You see, his friend's list is empty - so he has no fancy orbs floating around.  For shame.  But you fine Co-Optimus readers can help him.  Despite any issues we have with what state the co-op play is in, the bottom line is the Fable 2 is still a damn fine game, and the cooperative play is tons of fun.

LittleBigPlanet - Censored, Respectful, or Something Else?

You've certainly heard by now about the recent recall of LittleBigPlanet.  The inclusion of music containing verses from the Qur'an was the reason for the recall.  The official quote from Sony: "we sincerely apologize for any offense that this may have caused."  Avoiding controversy for such a big title is certainly understandable, but now, it appears that some Muslim groups are now calling foul, this time over "censorship", as seen in this article at Edge.  Is this one of those lose/lose situations?

Fable 2 CE Missing Content - Some Missing Content Available for Download

For a AAA title on release day, Fable 2 isn't doing too well.  Despite being really well received by critics, the fans are up in arms about several things.  Now there's one more thing to be pissed about.  It seems that some collectors editions, ones that were already gimped, are missing the included card with the codes required to download the extra content.  This includes a new dungeon and the much anticipated Master Chief costume.

Did Lionhead Drop the Ball on Fable 2 Co-Op?

The official Fable 2 forums are ablaze with angry co-op gamers, as it appears most of us have been misled as to exactly what the cooperative mode entails.  The main gripe people are having is that your Fable 2 character does not transfer over to any form of co-op.  This applies to both the online and the offline mode.  What you do get is to become a henchmen, something we already knew, but we didn't know how literal the term was.

10 Things You May or May Not Know About Fable 2 - My Impressions

    Fable 2 has a serious problem on its hand.  There is no way to talk about everything you can do in this game in a meaningful way without leaving the article's length something just shy of a novella.  Even after putting somewhere in the neighborhood of 10-12 hours of game time, I feel like I haven't even scratched the surfa...
