Fable III: And a chicken shall lead them

In Fable III you are asked to lead a revolution and to eventually rule your people. Are you ready for the challenge, or will you chicken out?

Fable III hit the store shelves this past week, and I have been seeing some buzz among my RPG playing friends. For those of you not familiar with the Fable franchise, the game is a role playing game set in a medieval Europe-like time period. The developer is Lionhead Studios, which is a subsidiary of Microsoft.

The developers apparently have a playful sense of humor judging by the opening cinematic.

If you are playing Fable III, we would like to see your comments. Do you recommend it? What's the story like?
