    Hi, sorry to start a new thread but I was a bit worried about the main Fable II thread being spoiler-filled!

    I just had a little query I hoped people could help me with... I was co-opping with my brother last night, and we were trying to get the achievement for giving an Xbox Live friend a gift, but we couldn't get it working. How do you give gifts to people? Or am I being thick?

    Don't do it in Co-op. You have to give it someone not in co-op, ie, an orb.

    Ah, an orb... I thought that might be the way forward, actually. Cheers!

    Oh, and Gremmi: you suck :'-(

    You don't actually.

    Or you might do. I don't know. I never finished it.

    I know you don't, actually, as my brother's already completed it. I was being humorous.

    Gremmi's not talking about the game, he's a pessimist.

    *bump*

    The first *free* episode is now available on XBLM: http://bit.ly/A2l4k

    Just scheduled it up and gonna give this a go. Not sure if it'll be for me, but for free is worth a shot :)

    What do you mean - "free episode"?

    They are releasing Fable II as episodic content on xblm.
    The first episode is free, the remaining will cost MS points.
    5 episodes in total I believe.

    They've split the game up into 3 parts, and are offering it on Games On Demand. The first part is free to sucker you in. It's no different from the retail boxed version as far as I know.

    I totally called it.

    Yeah - got all excited there for a second.

    Weren't they supposed to release a 3rd set of DLC? What's up with that?

    5 episodes, sayeth Kotaku. The final 2 might be the DLC though.

    Any ideas as to whether I can get the freebie, buy the final DLC and finish it so I can finally have it show up as complete?

    I was thinking the same as this.

    I doubt Bowerstone Market is available by the time 1st episode ends.

    Am I just being really thick, or does anyone else have problems with finding the new content in the game?

    I think some people are talking about 1 thing, and others are talking about something else.

    The result: ronuds = confused

    Sorry. I was being a total dick, ignore me. I couldn't grasp the fact that the episodic stuff was just the original game split in to 5 chunks.

    Thanks to the low low cost of nothing, I've finally tried this out. It's a lot better than I thought it'd be, quite enjoyable stuff so far. No idea how far I'll get before it says I'm done, but the fact the save will work fine if I buy the full game (which I will do now, when I have money) is awesome.

    It'd be nice if all demos did that. If I love a demo and play it a lot (like I did with Bioshock) I get fed up of that bit of the game. With this Fable II approach, that's not an issue. I do like it indeed.

    Tad pricey though. I got to a point where I'd earn and achievement, and it pops up saying you need Episode II to get it (not unreasonable, otherwise people would get it for a few free gamerpoints) and it says it costs 960 points, give or take a few given my rubbish memory.

    If it's 4 more episodes, that'll be 3840, which is a bit much. But given the fantastic option of just buying the game it's okay with me!

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi
