Let’s disco. I have Inferno Level 5.

I am still playing Fable II.  And I now have Inferno Level 5.

Burn, baby, burn.

I am taken aback by how much I love this power.  And I earned it.

Funny thing, I work in tandem with his character, who has Time Control.  Together, it’s a huge advantage.  He stalls the villains, I burn it up.   Sometimes I worry about burning the dog.

Is this a version of relationship teamwork in the Xbox world?


I got a dog. A fable dog.

I’ve played a game or two on the Xbox by now, but I am definitely still not embracing the sitting-on-the-couch-for-hours gaming culture.   And then there was Fable II.

For several nights I’ve been watching my husband play Fable II.

“You have a dog?” (this is me)

“Yes, they give your character a dog, and you can teach it tricks… it helps you find treasure…”

I brought a golden retriever into this relationship.   In fact, I told Richard this was a package deal when we met.  Suffice it to say, I heart my dog.

So the fact that I can have a dog in a video game was…well, a little bit appealing.

Against my better judgment, I join him in Fable II.  And I get a dog.

Next thing you know, for the next several weeks, I am uttering the words, “Honey, can we play Fable II?”

Richard goes to work and tells his co-workers that his fiance likes Fable II because of the dog.
