    So my buddy has a modded xbox360, and we've got like, every game known to man for it. I was all excited for Fable 2, because I was going to be the evilest son of a bitch ever created, loved/feared by all and popular with both the ladies AND the gents. Just like Fable 1, but with a dog.

    So within 24 hours of putting this game in my buddy's console, we got the red ring of death, and an error 74, which means either the AV cable is pooched...or the GPU is. Sigh.

    We thought maybe it was a problem with the rip, so we considered purchasing a legit copy. But the internet chatter is pointing to a problem with the game itself - apparently Fable 2 (the retail version, not a ripped one) is breaking a LOT of xboxes. Anyone else having a problem? Cause if it's true it's going to be VERY disappointing - I've been waiting for this game for quite some time.

    Hm... might be because your xbox is modded?

    Two of my teammates worked for fable 2, they did some of the bandit characters and whatnot. icon_razz.gif

    Several of my teammates bought the legit game. No problems reported except for the 'too short' complaint and the guns being overpowered. Only one played on xbox though, the rest played on PC.

    EDIT: Erp. Sorry. All on xbox LOL, I asked. Fable 2 doesnt have a pc version yet. Bummer. icon_redface.gif I hate joo consoles!

    We thought so, but apparently Fable 2 is bricking xboxes even when the copy is legit. :-/

    Anyway. Plenty more good games released this season.

    Why not grab Fallout 3 or Dead Space? Both are very good I hear. Not sure if they're released on xbox, since I'm strictly a PC gamer. icon_razz.gif

    Also... RED ALERT 3 IS OUT! Woot! icon_biggrin.gif

    Already played dead space, already have fallout 3.

    Can't play any of them cause the 360 is bricked. ><

    When I say we have like, every game...I mean it. Lol.

    The rrod is one of my biggest fears.

    Excuse while I shower with boiling water and scrub my skin red for even entertaining the idea.

    So far no problems for me. But i hope they come out with a patch for the co-op mode.It's still fun but also little bit of a disappointment.

    But me and my friend take turns hosting a game and still have fun treasure hunting and attack bandits.
