Will you be buying Fallout 76?

Not at all. I have no interest in yet another survival-crafting open world multiplayer game. I've put too many hours in Rust, Ark and the like to care about one of those, but with a Fallout skin.
I play Fallout for singleplayer shit.

The Last of Us may be third person, but it is hardly third person.
Nope. I will not.

It looks like complete and utter crap. I kept an open mind when it was announced but it never came close to grabbing me.
And I’m baffled how anyone can look at this and think it’s worth $20 let alone $60.


For those of you who are buying it, I’ll just say thoughts and prayers.

I am a huge fallout fan so yes, though it will bee on pc. One for me and one for the wife. We play a lot of shitty co-op survival games so this won't be much different.

Not expecting much, maybe it will be ok. Shroud seemed to like it.
 
Yes, already pre-ordered on ps4 pro.
I love the idea of an open world survival in a post apocalyptic landscape and the online component doesn't bother me.
I like the Bethesda fallout games because they have beautifully crafted worlds to explore, not for their npc and stories that are usually shit.
If I want to play the fallout rpgs that I love I still have fo 1,2 and new Vegas an they are still masterpieces. They are not made retroactively bad because of fallout 76
I like the idea of open world survival but the “survival elements” of this seem pretty lacking

This statement can be said about almost any Bethesda games, but some of them are still great.
Isn’t every TES game starting with Morrowind and on considered graphically beautiful (at the time of release)?

I really want a game to play with my brothers cooperatively but the gameplay videos so far haven't done enough to entice me. Looks more like something I'd prefer to lok at a few months down the line once they've had time to adjust based on the feedback I can only assume it's going to get.

Additionally I was hit by the client deleting my Beta pre-load on PC. Given my internet is 2MB on a good day and I'd used the entirety of my data on a 4G Dongle to download it I was not best happy...
 
It's an enjoyable experience IF you liked the exploration / building aspects of Fallout 4, otherwise I'd definitely skip it. My hype took a big hit with this 63 fps lock update; the shooting was serviceably smooth at locked 120fps with gsync, but locked to 60 it feels stuttery and bad again. It's frustrating that rather than address the technical issue directly with players and explain that the advantage at 120 fps vs 60 fps is insignificant for gameplay (meaning they could lock it at 120 fps instead) they just immediately cratered to "omg hackx" mob and locked it as low as they could get away with.

Why do they force a FPS cap on PC?

I bought the collectors edition because it just seems like it will go for a lot so why not. plus it's a working helmet so i'm always down for that after missing out on that awesome titanfall 2 one.

Literally wont play the game tho.
 
Nope. Rather simple reasoning really: It's clearly multiplayer-centric (even if Bethesda try to spin it as "oh, you totally can play by yourself"), the game's mechanics are clearly built with multiplayer in mind and I also don't like how there are no human NPCs (again, because they want to make other players explicitly readable). So I'll pass. But that doesn't mean that it's not a potentially good game. Just not for me.
 
Cant stand GiantBomb nowadays, but I enjoyed Gerstmann ripping apart Fallout 4 years ago and will probably listen to the Bombcast for the first time in ages next week just to listen to him shit on that franchise some more.

And no I wont be buying it. Bethesda games are absolute garbage.
 
"If people support this, you can be sure to have less solo game and more GaaS game from Bethesda"

Ummmm ok. Where did you read this info? Link or? ESO never stopped Elder Scrolls VI soooooo if that was going to happen, proof would simply be NO Elder Scrolls VI or Starfield or Doom, or Doom 2, or Rage 2 soooooo doesn't help your point when the team telling you they will keep making SP titles, ares still making SP titles.
do you think that without eso, the gap between V and VI would be less than 10-15 years?
 
Absolutely not. Fallout 4 was shit enough, as a Fallout fan playing an even shittier online version that is not capable of not erasing itself 2 weeks from launch is too much to handle. Bethesda as devs and writers really need to step It up, Fallout 3 was barely acceptable 10 years ago

Tons of interest but not touching this one for a solid year so it can be properly beta tested. My guess is like most current MMO's there wont be enough content to last a year and by the time the bugs are fixed it'll be discounted or free to play.
 
I want to want this game because the fallout universe is one of my favorites but after trying the B.E.T.A. I just don't have it in me. It has all of the things I don't like about current fallout without any of the good stuff IMO. I might still get it after the Holidays if the end game seems good. Right now I have no clue what I would be doing other than connecting the dots on the map...
