Bethesda's at it again, pissing off Fallout nerds with their usual fuckery of the series and Elder scrolls nerds who are bitching that too much time is being spent on Fallout stuff and not on Elder Scrolls 6.
One of the big guesses with game is its going to be a MMORPG of some sort. If so I can't imagine that's going to go over well with the average old school Fallout fans who are going to rage the hardest about it and demanding it should only stay single player.
Also seems like this one is taking place only 20 years after the bombs according to the date, so the other guess is this one might place more emphasis on survival due to things being a bit more radioactive and probably nuclear winter still going on. (Can't wait to see if Bethesda basically copied the Frost mod for Fallout 4)
In any case, it's more Fallout so I'll probably give it a try even if its an online game (Which is one of the few settings that would motivate me to play one on a regular basis anyway).
It's just a shitty multiplayer mod for Fallout 4. It's embarrassing to watch the janky game footage after Anthem and Cyberpunk 2077.
I'll play this. I was looking for my next gaming fix after God of BOY.
The Last of Gods.
Surprisingly, after Fallout 4, I'm not in the least bit excited for a new Fallout game. If this was Elder Scrolls 6, or even Starfield, I would be more hype. I'm going to keep updated on this, but this does not seem to be my flavor of game (fingers were crossed for New Vegas 2 or something along the lines of that). I can just hope that the story is at least better that Fallout 4, although I doubt it if it's going to be an online game.
We did 2 gifs for ESVI and Starfield tho. There ain't going to be any dialogue in Faloout 76.
Fuck Todd Coward.
Fuck that noise, I'm not playing that shit.
This seems to be an okay overview of what to expect so far.
Surprisingly still interested, really seems like something to wait for to come down in price and when they fix most of the bugs though. (Not all of them of course, this is Bethesda we're talking about here. That would just be wacky.)
Most of the complaints are that it's basically a tweaked Fallout 4 without any NPCs or a major plot direction with an extra focus on wandering/exploration and survival/building.
Honestly, sounds like an improvement since the main Fallout 4 storyline wasn't really that great anyway since they focused too much on the building shit in that game. At least here, they're not making any pretenses about what they really wanted to do in the first place.
Bethesda on the verge of telltaleing themselves?
Nah, they're too big and popular for them to shutdown. Even if Fallout 76 doesn't pan out very well, it won't be the end of the world for them. They'll just make it up with the next Elder Scrolls game.
Wouldn't be surprised if EA shuts down Bioware one day though, they already shutdown the branch that created Mass Effect: Andromeda since it sucked so badly.
And apparently Obsidian is being bought out by Microsoft.
Nah, Bioware will probably stay because Anthem is going to sell BIG copies. Not that EA needs them because they make 70% of their money from EA Sports. I believe DICE would go first since A) they fucked up bigtime with BFV and BFII B) they are europeans.
I hope Microsoft buys Obsidian and fixes their shitty real time cRPG combat systems.
