  • I didn't on my first playthrough. Even though he was a jerk to your character I sort of viewed him as someone who was disgruntled and more angry at the system than he was at me. Sure, that's not an excuse, but I thought kicking his ass for attacking me was retribution enough. To be honest, part of me really wanted to on some level, (and I did in my 2nd playthrough), but I also thought of what Colin said and I didn't just want to prove everyone right if they all think I'm some horrible monster who could snap at any time, you know.

  • I agree with you, you're supposed to be turning over a new leaf so to speak. It's no secret that everyone, including Colin still see you the way you used to be and actions like that would only serve to further isolate him from everyone. Regardless of how angry he was at the system nothing will justify his behaviour, but most who are angry enough aren't thinking clearly anyway. I won't lie having that option put in front of you like that is a horrible temptation but there is still part of you that knows it's not right, but that won't change the urge to want to still.

    I think everyone is guilty of trying it at least one, myself included. It is interesting to see the balance between those who did on the first playthrough and those who didn't.

  • I sided with him the whole way through, although I obviously disagreed with him trying to kill Bigby. But yeah, he has a right to be mad and he's a cool guy and fable, so I immediately refused to tear off his arm when the option appeared.

  • of course i ripped his arm off, im the big bad wolf and nobody f***s with me, plus that gren guy was a complete douche to bigby for no reason and started a fight he couldnt finish. its his own fault :)

    • It wasnt really for no reason. He thinks everyone in the head office is giving little guys like him the run around and Bigby represents that. He's just an angry man.

      • that is pretty much no reason, just because bigby is the sheriff doesnt give gren any right to be an asshole and start a fight with bigby. gren messed up and was an a-hole to the wrong person, me ripping his arm off should remind him never to do that again, your welcome gren

        • You'll notice that a theme of Fables is that people are never how they seem. Ichabod Crane is a huge douchebag asshole, the flying monkey's an alcoholic, the Woodsman is a robber, and Bigby is significantly less Big and Bad than he seems at first.

          Gren hates noise. It's what caused him to attack Hrothgar's mead hall to begin with, and thus what caused him to lose his arm the first time (you'll notice the huge scar where it's been reattached). He now lives in New York City, one of the loudest places in the world. He has to live there to keep getting enough money to pay for his glamour so he can fit in and not have to go up to the farm. He might not even be allowed to go there given his monstrousness (Bigby isn't). He and his friends spend every dollar they have on glamours, just barely eking out a living. When they want to air their grievances, Crane won't even give them the time of day, because he's an enormous asshole (as stated in paragraph 1). Do they resent this only half-functioning government, a government where every office is filled by a human fable with no glamour? Yes, and with right, Fabletown is a shithole, even Bigby knows that. Finally he snaps to violence when the jackbooted attack dog of the regime comes in to try and take one of their own.

          And then you ripped that poor, miserable creatures arm off, right where Beowulf did it 1300 years ago. Just to prove a point.

            Of course. All what you've said is true. But Bigby wasn't there for fun or trouble, it is about murder. So people should support him in every way to get that fucker who slaughters those Fables. If he don't want to help, if it's "too loud" for him then he could have left. But attacking the big wolf is just a bad idea.

            But at the end of the day he tried to kill me. At least that's I was thinking when that creature poked me around like a punching ball. I've played Bigby diplomatic as I could. I didn't piss him off, I stayed quiet all the time, even as he laid his hands on me the first time (which is for ME, personally, already way out of line, touching me unwanted is a "break" of my privacy and a step over a social line), but I stayed quiet and moved on, had a friendly chat with the Woodsman (I did not use any violence), and then, right out of the blue that unpredictable guy Gren started to insult and beating the crap out of me. I hope tearing off his arm will prevent him from doing so in the future. Against Bigby, against any other who is "too loud" in his opinion (or meet him at the wrong time at the wrong place just when he got angry about the system), although being kind and quiet in reality.

              But he didn't know that. Because the news about the murder hadn't been spread around, and Bigby was talking quietly with the Woodsman.

        • and to remind fables that you have not changed a bit

  • I left him alone on my first playthrough. I'm pretty sure it'll help me in the long run. Holly or The Woodsman might be more friendly towards me.

  • Saw no reason for the extra brutality. He was already subdued. I didnt want to look like a monster that enjoys tearing people's limbs off.

  • I couldn't bring myself to do it. I think Grendel is pretty awesome... Plus Beowulf already did it.

    I might try to when I complete it some other time. Might.

  • I didn't. Considering I had practically broken his leg and beat him around, I think he learnt his lesson. The last thing I want is anyone in the bar to be afraid I'll rip their limbs off, they may be helpful later.

  • I couldn't do it. only on my 3rd playthrough where I did it. But I don't se tha point of riping tha A-Holes arm off only to put more fear in everyone in tha bar. A good beating is good enough.

  • the reason i ripped his arm of was that the next time someone wants to start a fight they may think again, and i felt like he was threatening holly
