Nov. 2, 2010— -- There are now easy, handheld ways to find your polling place this Election Day. Websites including Facebook and Google are trying to mobilize millions of people to get out and vote today. Facebook is providing an official app that locates the nearest polling place. And Google has an election center site, for both the web and mobile devices, with polling information.

Fable III is the latest installment in the critically acclaimed action-role playing franchise. Your task is to stage a rebellion against the king of Albion, who is also your brother. CNET's Dan Ackerman says it offers several different types of game play, and a little bit of humor.

"Fable III mixes up a lot of socialization elements and communicating with people and building relationships with traditional action-adventure stuff... like going on quests and getting in fights with monsters," Ackerman said. "(It) ends up coming up with a fairly unique mix of those two sorts of play styles and you end up with something that's completely different from any other role-playing game out there."

The game is available for the Xbox 360 and PCs.
