Good evening, good afternoon, good morning, wherever you are. It is with great delight that today I announce that Lead Designer on Fable Anniversary, Ted Timmins, will be joining us here on XBA tomorrow (24th Jan, 2014, at 4pm GMT)  for an hour to answer all your burning questions (or ours) regarding Fable Anniversary and more.

Want to know what goes into making a HD remake? What the differences between the two versions actually are? Want to know how Ted and co. came up with the brilliant achievement list? Heck, want to know Ted's gamerscore and find out more about one of Lionhead's upcoming top development talent, that's the whole point of this hour long session.

This is the first in what we are hoping is a long line of features called Dev Chat, putting the industry's development talent in front of you for you to ask your burning questions, discover amusing anecdotes or just find out how or why they got into the industry. The floor is open (within reason) and myself and Ted will be kicking things off tomorrow at 4pm GMT (which is this time in other time zones).

You'll be able to find the Ted Timmins chat right here tomorrow, but fear not, just before it starts tomorrow we'll post a reminder in the news channel so you don't miss it... just make sure you're free.

Put this one in the diaries, folks, it's sure to be a hoot.

@1 Bah, you whippersnappers, back in my day we actually had to remember things ourselves. Like run when you see a T-Rex, which back then were called alarm clocks, modern fancy alarm clocks not actually been invented then. We would run from that alarm clock all day, or as we called it all fiery ball of death time, without the time bit though, that wasn't invented either, but Geoff had come up with something called trees, but not the trees you're thinking of, these were made of water, and float through the sky, anyway the point is was a very commonly used phrase back then, we used it to determine if a Triceratops was chasing us, but not the Triceratops you're thinking of these ones where Pirates, and that's where babies come from.

Questions for Tim:

Q1: Aren't Achievements just bullshit?

Q2: Did you roll your eyes at the final line of Wesley Yin Poole's recent EuroGamer article? Because everyone else did.

Q3: Are You Not Entertained!? won the fan created achievement competition for Fable Anniversary.
Did you go out of your way to select the most hackneyed pop culture reference or were the entrants just that bad?

Q4: I've never played a Fable game. Why start now?

Feel free to re-word those slightly.

@4 You're an idiot and I hope no one asks that. The OBVIOUS answer is that they put it in there to encourage people to use Smartglass. The better question to ask would be why you feel entitled to 1000G in a game when you haven't experienced everything there is to offer?

@4... Like @8 said, why should you get 1000 in a game without experiencing every part of it? You can get the app on pretty much any device. I'm sure at the very least you have a PC.

@6 im posting on a pc which is windows 7 not 8. i also don't have an iphone or an android run tablet, my phone is just a standard phone as i hardly use my mobile phone.

@8 so you feel that im the moron because i cannot get the 1000 points from the game? well what's the point in having the 1000 points then, especially when you are paying for the game only to find you cannot complete it, why should i have to buy a smartphone, or a tablet, or upgrade to windows 8, if i buy the game i expect to be able to complete it without having to buy extra equipment for it, or is this how it's going to be now that each game you will have to buy some new item just to complete the game?

@11 same as above if im paying for the game then i should be able to complete it without having to buy extra equipment, and i have a pc, just not windows 8.
