Lionhead Studios Video Diary Episode 8: Finishing Fable II and Creating Knothole Island

Lionhead Studios’ excellent video diary series continues today with the release of the eighth episode “Finishing Fable II and Creating Knothole Island.” As I’m sure you can gather from the title, this episode provides an inside look at the final bug-fixing days of Fable II‘s development and a preview of the game’s first downloadable content add-on Knothole Island, which has also just been confirmed for a January 13th release priced at 800 MS Points.

I’ve only recently been able to begin playing the game myself and so far I’m pretty disappointed with it — certainly don’t see how it’s getting more than a few Game of the Year nods amongst the press. It’s a solid game I’m just not seeing that any significant improvements have been made over the original. It’s not very polished either, but I’m still very early on in the game so I’ll reserve final judgment until I finish it up.
