It appears that Fable III was announced at this year’s Gamescon.  I never realized that Fable II was such a success, then again I was never that much of a fan so I didn’t play to much of it.  In this addition you will now be able to become the ruler of Abion.  The other new features are unclear, but they also announced that Fable 2 will be re-released to the XBLA as an “episodic XBLA download”.  Looks like you Fable fans are going to have your hands full with new content!

I just wanted to show you this piece written by Bitmob contributor Micheal Donahue (click here).  The things people use to create art like this is amazing.  People may not look at the Rubiks cube as a simple puzzle anymore.

I heard about this campaign for the first time today.  Its about the time spent listening to those annoying voice mail instructions and the amount of profits these cellphone carriers are gaining.  Some of the following sources have a little more information on where to go or what you can do to get involved in this.  The profits are shocking.  We are talking about in the hundreds of millions.  Who would have thought.

What once was a rumor seems to be reality.  Several sources report that there have been some early advertisements showing the new PS3 Slim at a price of $299.  Apparently that’s not the end of it, there are some other reports of the 80GB PS3 dropping to $299 and the 160GB to $399.  As far as when this will take place in not clear.

Shadow Complex

Already getting tons of praise, Shadow Complex stands its own ground within an already outstanding game collection that lives in the XBOX Arcade.  This game looks almost to be a crossover of Castlevania & Metroid.  The script for the game is actually written by comic book writer Peter David, so here’s to the story being as memorable as some of his Star Trek novels.  With a rating of 9.4 (out of 10) from IGN, it now has some pretty high expectations. 

Shadow Complex is scheduled to hit the marketplace 8/19/09.
