The secret feature in Fable 2, the one its creator Peter Molyneux will be hyping, is love.

Actually, the secret feature in Fable 2, the one its creator Peter Molyneux is hyping, is a dog.

Molyneux revealed there were three great features in the Xbox 360 RPG Fable 2. Love, or the dog, was the first of them. Microsoft has forbidden Molyneux to talk much about the game. For Fable, Molyneux talked endlessly.

"I showed off presents I didn't have," he said.

Anyway, the dog part is real. As is love. The dog is an attempt to put real human emotion into video games. Each player will get a dog in Fable 2. The dog will love the player unconditionally, and Molyneux is betting players will love it right back.

Oh, and another great tidbit from Molyneux: Characters can have protected or unprotected sex. Unprotected sex leads to children and, since players can opt to take the role of a female, Fable 2 will be the first game where a player's character will become pregnant and will go into labor. No lie.
