Re: Fallout 76 - (PS4, XB1, PC)

You know it's a bad sign when you try to leave a review on the Amazon Site...where I got the game from...and you're greeted with this...

Re: Fallout 76 - (PS4, XB1, PC)

I can’t even play the game. I keep crashing like 90 seconds in. I love Fallout but I think I might try and sell it.

Re: Fallout 76 - (PS4, XB1, PC)

Finally had time to get in game and I am enjoying it.

Lots to learn, see and do. Perhaps this game suits my game play style but I am happy following the main quest line for now and leveling my character.

No bugs or glitches that I can see other than a few server drops which happens in any online game.

Re: Fallout 76 - (PS4, XB1, PC)

There's plenty liking the game not seeing and having any or much issues which I think is great...just like there's plenty who are having the opposite experience....one look on the official forums and it's apparent of the divide.

I haven't picked up the game again for almost 10 days. I was going back & forth with 76, AC: Origins,, Elder Scrolls Online, Warframe and the new God of War I just got. After playing any of them and going back to 76....I just felt like I went backwards....in story, game/character mechanics, visuals, quests and just generally not giving me that "Can't wait to come back and continue to play" feeling. Listening to Holo Tapes, reading countless notes, dealing with Robbie the Robot Trader, fighting screeching Ghouls and muttering Mutants doesn't seem too appealing compare to the other games.

FWIW...there is a Patch coming like first part of December I think...that's to raise the stash limit to 600 and fix some other issues. But the newest backlash with 76 and Bethesda is all those who ordered the Power Armor Edition...well they didn't exactly get what they were promised and Bethesda's fix was an even more insult and slap in the face....

Re: Fallout 76 - (PS4, XB1, PC)

It is not a big deal when a company reuses assets for a game. We all know that Bethesda does this. When people discovered files in fallout 76 named after Fallout 4 or Skyrim it is not as big of a deal as they are making it out to be.

But...

Seeing one of the first lines of codes in Fallout 76 checking to see if you have the Fallout 4 disc in before launching (a line that was disabled but is still in fallout 76) gives credit to a thought my friends had about Fallout 76 when it was first announced. We figured this game was originally designed to be the online part of Fallout 4. The success of GTA online had to be a big carrot on a stick for Bethesda, and it makes sense when you look at the game Fallout 76 is. If it was the online part of Fallout 4..people would not be so upset about the lack of story or missions. I think Bethesda was worried they would not have been able to monetize the game as much as GTA...so decided to add to it and release it as a stand alone game.

Re: Fallout 76 - (PS4, XB1, PC)

It's just "meh" to me. Kind of boring, don't care for the PvP portion of it, and just reminds me that I'd rather be playing FO4.

Another reason I need to dump this turd asap. I've already got burned a few times this generation with Evolve and SW:BF. Paying full price and then watching them become free later and have no resell value.


Thankfully I still have it sealed so I'm taking it back to Best Buy. This will be the first time I returned a AAA title without playing it. I just can't see any possible way I would have fun with this title. I never got around to playing Fallout 4 so it would just be pure stupidity to shell out $60 right now when I can get a better experience with that game. The graphics even look the same Fallout 4.

Re: Fallout 76 - (PS4, XB1, PC)

Not sure if anyone here is a fan of Angry Joe but he absolutely blasted this game in his review and 1 hour follow up discussion about it. I'd never expect garbage like this from Bethesda. Maybe I'll check it out when it's free on PSN or Gold. Maybe.

Re: Fallout 76 - (PS4, XB1, PC)

As I said before, it is fine if you are not expecting it to be Fallout 5. My beef is the number of asswipes online that just want to beat you to death when you are just doing your own thing.

during my time playing I got attacked once but I could tell on a few occasions I was being stalked. I didn't have an issue but I know of others who did on more than one occasion. One was attacked by two 30 seconds after he spawned in and lost everything. He had just turned Level 5 so they were looking for those who maybe hadn't flipped the Slap Switch yet.

The Stash and CAMP issues were bothering me. I found two Power Armor Suits, one with two armor parts that was at a high level and had to store. This is where I ran into problems. With Fallout 4, you got several suits and could park them in your Safe Zone..Settlement or House in Diamond City without fear of being stolen but also you didn't need to store them. You now have to and that's taken up space. And the Power Armor Station cost is insane at 1000 Caps. But why bother when your CAMP can be destroyed. I actually came across more wide open CAMPS...crafting benches with a Cooking Fire and no walls than ones built...

Another part that's not working or at least I never hardly saw was The Events....sort of like those in Destiny or in Elder Scrolls The Dolmens (Anchors). For me, about 85% of the time I saw these pop up on the map and no-one was around them. For a game that's trying to lure and keep players involved, this part is not working. During the Beta they did work but the (23) other on the map are all-over the place and sometimes you would see 3-4 of these going on. Need to make them more attractive loot wise and possibly share loot....first come gets it and usually something that doesn't get you 1-2 Bottlecaps....why bother when fast traveling costs more plus you probably end up using more Health Aids and might get attacked.

Update On Patch Notes Coming.... Fallout 76 Patch Notes Released, No Mention of PS4 Performance Improvements ...only 3gb; stash,
auto-weapons, balancing, boss loot...

Agree. Hope they tone that down a bit, I am constantly short of adhesive even though I’ve found some spots with lots.

One thing that has made the game more fun me is there is a bug that lets you carry as much as you want, I’m sure they’ll fix it soon since it probably totally destabilizes the game, but for now it lets me go far afield and pick up everything which has helped me in myriad ways including having more caps, adequate food and water, mostly having stuff to repair my things and build up my camp a bit (except adhesive).

It's a glitch that's been exploited but has had consequences. A lot on the official forum are not seeing even worse lag, more frequent disconnects and game crashes every 5 minutes. The Weight Glitch doesn't appear as bad but the XP Glitch does seem to have more on crashes and DC"s. More on Reddit from someone who did some tests....

https://www.reddit.com/r/fo76/commen...eight_exploit/


And if you're heading there another has gone thru and actually compiled a list of known bugs.....

Re: Fallout 76 - (PS4, XB1, PC)

Still enjoying the game, going slowly doing the main quest line. Only one bug so far, I lost my quests and resolved it by logging out/in again.

No one has attacked me, done a few events and trying to learn more about C.A.M.P

Re: Fallout 76 - (PS4, XB1, PC)

I had one asshat who followed me around for 10 minutes attacking me. I never fought back and even used friendly emotes to get him to move on. I had another guy follow me around and spam me with group requests. Both times I logged and joined another world.

It mght get fixed tomorrow, but you just reetedly equip and unequip an item with ďpocketedĒ. Eventually your capacity goes negative, and then you can carry as much as you want. If they fix it at the same time they update the stash to 600, Iíll still be ok.

I could manage anyway at this point since I have a better idea what I need to carry around (although all the water I have kind of kills me) but it is more fun when I can pick everything up without heading back all the time since most of what I find is useful.
