This is a game I have been dieing to play.
Such a shame.. FO4 was good and I bought it on the basis to get up to speed for 76. 

 

 

 

Edit: Reading the review, It seems to resemble a poorer version of rust. Collect then scrap, collect then scrap - die to someone with overpowered gear or a team repeat. Rust just has normal monsters, no radioactive ones.

It was....not the greatest egg in their basket of 'Bethesda' ideas.

you know things cant be great when they put out a 47GB update a few days after release.





Common sense is not as common as you think.

When ever I see games that are 60GB or more I just think that they are bloated with junk they don't need and poorly constructed or covered in patches.

I recall stories of little johnny getting an xbox or playstation for Christmas, and then blowing the whole families monthly data allowance patching before he could play, and that taking 6 hours on capped broadband adsl yell

Bethesda has managed to make a game that fails to include the things that make their games great, the questing and story, but leaves in the thing people hate most about their games, more bugs than the average locust swarm. How did hey think people were going to react?

I think they started selling at half price within days of release.

Also now the canvas bag saga.......  collectors editions advertised as coming with canvas bag, but when received, its just a nylon bag and Bethesda havent apparently gone "tough".

@xpd That was soo poorly handled.

 

Summary of events:

 

And then someone from Bethesda thought it was smart to post on Reddit:

Pretty disappointing - very nearly pre-purchased this; now very glad I didn't.  I guess we can still look forward to cyberpunk 2077?

Even the man with Vault Boy for his avatar is disappointed.

Bethesda’s last half decent game was Skyrim and that’s still debatable.

I don't condone the following person's behaviour, and I'm sure the police will be talking to him.

This video had me cracking. Seriously, I get that the game is bad, but come on, how can you get so mad over a game being bad.
