Games can be frustrating and challenges usually a good thing we might get stuck in a puzzle for longer than we’d like or have an enemy encounters set us back farther than expected and it’s acceptable but some games are very annoying. Sometimes we run into a brick wall completely holding our progress or get screwed so royally that there’s no point in continuing. It doesn’t happen often we couldn’t think of more than two or three moments in our lifetimes but almost everyone had a sad story to tell.
Fable 3, the third Fable game trilogy started going off making games that weren’t faithful and the whole thing about working and that was a huge fight was gonna be coming at the end of the game that there was no way to win this fight and your brother was a big ass and you had to do with your brother and he was being really cruel to people but you find out that is actually being cruel to people because he needs to raise money she’s got really tax people and do these awful things because he’s got a raise money because you’ve got to build an army because these this darkness is coming to BC destroy the kingdom so there’s this dichotomy in the story fable 3 where that you need money or you need to be nice to people and there’s no way to do both but there is actually because in Fable.
Ever since the first fable there are mini games and real estate and you know selling loath there’s all sorts of ways to just make a ridiculous amount of money so when I went into Fable 3 and they said you know you’re not gonna have enough money to support the army so you really have to decide whether you want to screw people over to save the kingdom or whether you wanna be nice to people and then we’ll all have to fight this almost unwinnable fight at the end of the game.
And I thought immediately from recognizing that if people 30 have the best of both worlds gonna save up enough money at all because I’m gonna be completely patient and take my time playing the game and just have a ton of money and then finish the story and have the best of both worlds.
Well the story progression via the calendar in Fable three is extremely ambiguous so when you when you finish the story segment the story leaps forward a completely random intervals of time so it might be like if I jump a year or am I jumped two months or by jump a week you don’t know and it’s like interchanges those you know periods of time throughout the game and so I think it was something like three months away from when the attack was gonna happen that I was stopped at the story and I figured ok I’m going to do one more chapter in the story move ahead and then it’ll probably be like three days before the attack and it jumped from three months or something equivalent that amount of time to the war and even though I had the money in front of me.
I was actually physically at that moment standing in front of all the riches that I had built up I couldn’t spend any of it on the on the army because it was actually time to fight the army’s here you know even though you’re king not gonna give you any prep on the army on this giant massive darkness monsters showing up we gotta go deal with this fight now sorry you didn’t save enough money we told you was gonna be difficult but you didn’t you just set an arbitrary jump in time that prevented me from actually having the best of both worlds and you know building up all the money that I spent a really long time building up because you just automatically over saved my save.
