Some RPGs really like to pride themselves at letting the player shape the world or at the very least the kingdom around them. Fallout 3 is no exception with a possible 200 different endings, Bethesda is keen to admit though that some variations will be minimal.

Peter Molyneux has said that Carbonated Games will be making three XBLA titles that will compliment Fable 2. These arcade games are too give players the chance to gamble for gold which can then be put into the upcoming RPG.
If you looking for some extra gold to line those Fable pockets then you'd best keep a keen eye on XBLA.
