What exactly is the difference between the two?

I've googled around a lot but everything seems a bit muddled and inconclusive, from what I can gather Lost Chapters is just what they call the PC version, but on CH under PC we have both Fable and Lost Chapters as two separate games.

I know I know, it's just me being a 'tard, please educate meeee.

Taken from Wikipedia

"Fable was expanded and rereleased as Fable: The Lost Chapters for Xbox and Windows PC platforms in September 2005. The game was later ported to Mac OS X by Feral Interactive on March 31, 2008.[13]

The Lost Chapters features all the content found in the original Fable, as well as additional new content such as new monsters, weapons, alignment based spells, items, armor, towns, buildings, and expressions, as well as the ability to give children objects. The story receives further augmentation in the form of nine new areas and sixteen additional quests. Characters such as Briar Rose and Scythe, who played only minor roles in the original game, are now given more importance and are included in certain main and side quests. Other character-based augmentations include the antagonist, Jack of Blades' voice sounding deeper, harsher and more demonic; and being able to uncover (and resolve) the murder mystery behind Lady Grey's sister."

Ahhhhh, thank you!

So there ARE two versions of Fable for PC, just Lost Chapters is better?

Yes. The Lost Chapters has quite a bit more content than Fable.

if you have ever played the original fable, you would probably agree that the game was fairly short and although the story was decent, it left you feeling like there should have been more to it. fable TLC adds about 4-6 hours of gameplay and extends the ending of the story to provide more closure. if you're planning on purchasing one or the other, i would strongly advise the lost chapters version, made for pc and xbox console

Thanks for the info

I have the original Fable on original Xbox (never bothered with the 360, got a PS3 instead) so I was just wondering what exactly the differences between the two titles now. Having now played both (managed to pick up TLC from ebay nice and cheap) for pc, It's nice to know that with TLc they made the original Fable game a lot more highly polished in regards to little niggly bugs and glitches that were annoying, like some textures etc not always fitting properly, some cutscenes not running in sync to the sound etc.

Just all the things people used to complain about the original being not overly-fantastic in the making and release, when it could have had a couple more weeks of bug testing to get it perfected. Must say that the TLC content was totally worth buying it a second time, just for that, and running it on a modern mid-spec PC means I can run it at full res, which likely (can't remember, been a long time since I packed it up to save space) looks far better than it did on the origina xbox with anti-aliasing turned up to max. It's a really nice, much smoother game now.
