Sigh.

Fortnite ripoff? Check.

CyanFire (talkcontribs)

Great, all of the stuff Bethesda is already known for is the new selling point of Fallout 76. Whoop de do.

I also played a match of that battle royale mode during the free week trial of Fallout 76, and I'm just going to spoil it right now... it's not good.

The irony of the $5 atoms they gave as compensation for a $200 collector's edition

CyanFire (talkcontribs)

The "Postman" outfit in-game is worth 700 atoms and comes with a decorative canvas bag you can have your character wear, and yet the compensation they provided for an edition that was supposed to have a REAL canvas bag isn't enough atoms to let you get a digital canvas bag either. Let that sink in for a moment.

BombtailsTheFox (talkcontribs)

I bet that it's not a coincidence. Also, from one of the video i posted, the PLAYERINSIDE's one, there's people defending the game, by saying that it's early access, that they don't understand nothing, that before criticizing something they must make a game, etc... (Be aware that they're italian comments, since two of the videos that i posted in the page, are from two italian youtubers called respectively Playerinside and Quei due sul Server)

TyrantRex (talkcontribs)

Early access is in my opinion one of the worst things to ever happen in modern gaming, now people defend obviously unfinished games.

BombtailsTheFox (talkcontribs)

For me, Early Access works if it's done well.

TyrantRex (talkcontribs)

It is almost never done well. Almost every time it's used as a cheap excuse to sell unfinished games.

CyanFire (talkcontribs)

Bethesda has finally announced they're going to give REAL canvas bags to people who had bought the collector's edition! Frankly, I'm glad they're doing this, but it sucks that we would have to force them into a corner criticism-wise in order to get them to do what they promised to do in the first place. Anyways, I've updated the article to add this new footnote.

Evil Tim (talkcontribs)

Yeah I mean it's well known that canvas is expensive...?

CyanFire (talkcontribs)

Yeah, kind of weird that they would announce it came with a canvas bag and then not think to check supplies or the price of canvas BEFORE announcing the collector's edition.

TyrantRex (talkcontribs)

Bethesda did not think ANYTHING through when it came to Fallout 76. Also they were being investigated for false advertisement so most likely them caving on the canvas bags was to avoid a lawsuit.

Fallout 76 is basically the Destiny 2 of 2018.

CyanFire (talkcontribs)

But at least Destiny 2 is now somewhat tolerable because of how much they've tried to fix it (there's an actual story in Destiny 2 and the game was built from the ground up to be different than the original), and how cheap you can get the game (I've gotten the game twice, both times for free with expansions on PC and PS4, yet I still don't play it).

Meanwhile, Fallout 76 is still between $40 - $60, has almost no story aside from EVERYTHING-style voice samples and text, still looks worse than Fallout 4 from 2015, and has already got 6 DLCs planned (according to the in-game files someone found) rather than focusing on fixing fundamental gameplay issues. I'm not really a Destiny guy, but I'd take that any day over Fallout 76.

"You threw down $200 for a collector's edition with a compromised item? We're sorry to hear that you were disappointed, here's $5 worth of compensation for your troubles......toodles!" -- Bethesda's mindset

By the way, does anyone else think the Power Armour Edition should have its own page?

CyanFire (talkcontribs)

If you can find enough material to cover that we haven't already covered in the Fallout 76 page or in False Advertising in Gaming, go right ahead.

One trend that needs to go away

ThunderKat (talkcontribs)

This game isn't the first to do this, but I would love to see digital-only games with physical cases go away, because not only does it give the illusion of actually owned a copy of the game, but a digital code is one-time use, so you can't exactly trade it in if the game ends up being complete shit. It's one reason I stayed away from Fallout 76, aside from the bad press and PR nightmare it has had. I'd rather have a physical game in a case as opposed to just a one-time use code.

Grust (talkcontribs)

I prefer physical over digital myself because with physical I truly own the game. It's also why I consider the physical games I own part of my collection and not the digital games I bought.

ThunderKat (talkcontribs)

Do you feel like that ownership is just an illusion when you only have a code inside a box, but no disc? 'Cause that's what I feel, and I kind of what see that trend die because of it.

Grust (talkcontribs)

I never once bought one of those cases, now will I ever.

ThunderKat (talkcontribs)

Few games do it, but I thought it was still worth mentioning at least.

Grust (talkcontribs)

I first heard about this with Fallout 76, I didn't know other games did that. That's bullshit.

CyanFire (talkcontribs)

It's stuff like this that makes me really sad for the future. Sure, digital games are convenient, and come with the added benefit of always being there ready to play (so long as they're installed on your device's hard drive), but it also comes at the cost of game preservation.

Want to play a game on your new console that you bought digitally on the old console? Nope. They're all tied to your one account on your one console. No game sharing.

Accidentally uninstalled it, but still want to play it once the storefront servers shut down? Nope. Can't reinstall it, because there's nothing you can reinstall it with.

Had an issue that permanently locked you out of your account or got you banned for reasons in or out of your control? Kiss your game library goodbye.

That sucks. And now, with the advent of game streaming services like Google Stadia or Project xCloud, these problems will only multiply as time goes on.

ThunderKat (talkcontribs)

I'm with you on that last point; even now, I am not ready for an all-digital future!

Grust (talkcontribs)

That' why retro gaming is becoming very popular. Plus with how overly sensitive SJWs can get they're likely to be the ones that'll ruin your library. Google itself is very pro-SJW and is a very big reason I don't want their upcoming console, because with one mistake, not only can you kiss your games good-bye, you've wasted who knows how much money just becasue you disagreed with them.

I'm sticking with physical forever since with that, I truly own the game. With physical and retro, SJWs have no power over what I play. Hell it's even one of the reasons we'll beat them.

We just have that.

My brother just got that game.

Evil Tim (talkcontribs)

My condolences.

Unnamedgoon (talkcontribs)

We're losing too many people this year.

WENth100 (talkcontribs)

Hopefully it's the regular edition, if it's the collector's edition then he just got scammed out of more of his money.

CyanFire (talkcontribs)

As long as you got it on sale. If you bought it at full price (or, god forbid, the "Tricentennial" / "Power Armor" editions), then we must press F to pay respects to your brother's wallet.

Pinky Malinky (talkcontribs)

Your brother better have bought worse games than this otherwise I feel sorry.

BombtailsTheFox (talkcontribs)

Let's just hope that he didn't bought the Power Armor edition, or else he will be scammed.

MagnumFederal2 (talkcontribs)

I didn't waste my money for this game, thank god.

Z Grand GR (talkcontribs)

what a waste of space

MagnumFederal2 (talkcontribs)

And a huge waste of money!

Dekarserverbot (talkcontribs)

sorry to hear that, i suggest you to seize your brother's earnings from now and until the end of time

Monchete (talkcontribs)

My brother ALMOST got to play it because of the Deathclaws. Thank god he's addicted to FIFA and that he used his money on RDR2.
