But... but buying that would be worse than piracy! (in the eyes of peter molyneux)

Argos, when will you learn!

They pay more than everyone else on trade-ins, get shedloads in stock, then find they're overstocked and sell them off cheap..

Great for us gamers, but seriously, whoever's in charge of the Argos pre-owned games department needs to be sacked!

they don't get that much stock - i've tried to buy a couple of things from them this morning and they are all out of stock (even though the system says otherwise until you've gone through the whole payment prcoess...)

Agree mate but they always give you vouchers & the chances are your going to buy one of there overpriced chart games oO

i found this game for £9.99 last week at Cash Generator and thought it was a steal, this ... is even better. Great price!

Don't usually buy used games, but will do so on this occasion due to Lionhead's recent comments.

Nice, reserved the last copy at an argos a couple of miles away.

HOT HOT HOT

I already had this but brought 1 for the boy..

Didn't notice that - will add to the main post

Piracy on the Xbox is a nightmare, microsoft are always finding ways to do something so it`s best to be legit and at the prices of the games you guys are finding (and i`m benefiting at these lovely reduced prices) I can`t see how piracy can be justified!!!

I bought the Collectors Edition for £17.99 and thought it was a good deal.

When I played the game however, I was surprised that it was actually worse than Fable II.

I love Molyneux and I even buy that he gets excited and overpromises etc - I don't mind that and he seems a nice, well meaning and charismatic chap. None of that matters though, what matters is wether or not Fable III is any good.

The answer is no. It looks the same or worse than FII and often struggles to cope. The Spellcasting system is pants and lame, fighting is frustrating/easy/overly hard in random ways and there are only about 6 enemy types. Lionhead reckon that 'other' RPG's feature boring characters who only have one line - well I was astonished to find that in FIII you don't even have full control of the emotions/speech options like in FII.... Instead the game picks one nice, one nasty and one or two other interaction 'types' such as romance etc.

The upshot? FIII's characters have even less to say than any other RPG and practically nothing about them is interesting. There is a romance plot which fails entirely to be interesting, becoming king is a pharce and the way that time passes in the last year is complete rot.

For me, FIII was somehow enjoyable in places so I did stick with it, but its a badly finished, subpar game worthy of about 5/10.

it used to be a nightmare on games like cod... but now xbox have become too clever and had banned consoles that can play pirate games.. if someone has a console that can play pirated games then they cant play online... which is the best thing since sliced bread

can you only trade 1 copy of a game to argos?

Yes, but you have to quickly put on a false moustache, cape and hat and talk quite pompously and say "A good while ago I bought a wonderful game from a shop that wasn't this one..." and just ad-lib it from there. Taking the big Argos stickers off the case might help, too.

lol
You are a genius...I have ordered my black moustache to go over my brown facial hair just to really pull the trick off

Picked up my copy, had an argos gift card that I thought only had £1-£2 but had £5.01 so only paid £3.98. Happy Days.

Also you can get gamestation to price match and beat argos by £1 if you prefer the store credit there.

Just picked the last one up from Argos on Holloway Road. Cheers OP - very nearly paid £18 a week or so ago!

Nice find. Been wanting to try out the Fable series.

nything positive ti say about the game?

I waaaaaaant it! - but don't have an Xbox :o(
I loved Fable 1 though. Heat!

Can't believe I bought the collectors edition of this and paid retail price

Curse you Peter but I will still buy your games cause I'm a lionhead fanboy

I played the first one and love it, bought the second one and got side tracked by Fallout 3, Are these stand alone adventures or would i have had to have played number 2 to understand number 3?

heat from me, just ordered

Got my copy, had a £5 voucher also so only £3.99
