I downloaded it, but haven't had an opportunity to try it yet.

Now we can spray our enemies with a full clip and then still have to bash them to finish them off.I downloaded the DLC last night but didn't play any of it yet.

Joystiq did a review of the content. It sounds favorable and basically boils down to, did you like Fable 2?, then you'll like this.Joystiq review: Fable 2's Knothole Island (DLC)I'll probably get it myself. I haven't finished the game yet and it sounds like this will fit in best before I finish.

I didn't play it again last night... I fell asleep on the couch watching "RAW" on Netflix. It's been a rough week at work. I will definitely be picking up a Caramel Machiatto on my way home from work tonight and playing Knothole Island tonight though. Also, if anyone will be on tonight I still need to get the Co-op Expression achievement. I will pay for you to dance with me. :)

I finished the main quest from the DLC. It is very ho hum. The island is pretty small and the quest boils down to a few dungeon runs and some orb puzzles. Not a good story to back it up and not much exploring outside of the liner crawls. They could have done so much more with the story or giving you a villain or some reason to even give a crap about this place. They do a nice job with the snow, heat and rain that plagues the town. So nice of a job with snow and heat graphics that you will question why similar zones didn't make it into the full game rather than this. Damn, I want a desert level now!The town doesn't have a few stores but no Inn and no new jobs. It has a general cart, weapon+aug, stylist and a grab bag store. There does seem to be a decent amount of new outfits added. The place is also a haven for special potions to loose weight and clean up your skin. You can find a lot just in chest around the island/dungeon and the rest is at vendors and the grab bag store. Basically she has a bunch of gift boxes and requires certain items in trade for each gift. The "hal" riffle cost a potion of infinite wisdom or something like that...most expensive potion in bowerstone. Hal riffle does do some nice damage even though it feels a bit out of place. Overall it did get me playing again and I enjoyed getting back into the game even if the DLC quest itself felt shallow and tacked on. It does offer a decent amount of new toys to play with and at 800pt is isn't the most expensive thing on Live. I still have a good number of quest to complete from the main game so I am glad this DLC got me back into the swing.Oh...and you can get your dog back if you want. I personally am not a fan of 'escort' missions and that dog felt like one big long one so I'll probably put it off for a while and ride solo. I will just have to miss out on some of the buried island treasures.
