Is Aoife on holiday? Just wondering why you needed to look on Wiki, or was she too busy running round the office squeee-ing at top volume :lol:

Is it looking as good as Walking Dead?

Also don't tease Ed, when will we find out about this mystery thing?
It's all in the game...

Obviously I can only compare the source but I far prefer the Fables Comic to The Walking Dead. I just find the world richer and more interesting, and the characterisations are more subtle. The detective story nature of Bigby should also lend itself better to a game. The first volume can be got fairly cheaply, and tells a nice self contained noir detective story if anyone feels the need to prepare.

Either way even if Fables is only half as good as WD it'll still be a cracking game.

Although I am quite excited about this I am worried that a detective story may make this less enjoyable than Walking Dead. It's very easy to get monotonous in a point and click type game, especially if you are looking for 'clues' (LA Noir and Deadly Premonition suffer from this to an extent).

I know they're based on comics, but these sort of graphics are a bit of a cheap way out. Making it point and click would be the ultimate in laziness and the furthest you could get from immersive gameplay. Hopefully, they'll make it differently to The Walking Dead. To be fair I didn't like Dishonored either and that came covered in GOTY stickers as well. I just think that, although The Walking Dead has a great plot, that's the only thing good about it and if you want a good plot, just read the comics. The graphics are bad and the gameplay is terrible, I really don't understand why everyone liked it.
