    Are you suggesting Bill would toy with the easily triggered like a puppet master? :naughty: :mrgreen:

    That saying a lot about current MMORPG states. By all standard of gaming this game is obviously bad but still the most fun mmorpg lite experience to be had. Sad year to come

    Doesnt matter if this game can host 2 people or 200.
    In current beta state the game is riddled with bugs, bland gameplay , lack of challenge and meaninful npc.
    Till today modders saved all Fallout games .  You will be heavily disappointed 76 does not have mod support due to online element.

    I have been considering replaying the Fallout games and when I had a look at the mods and the number of modding videos it is extremely obvious why this franchise did so well. It's the modders and 76 will not have that. It will be fraction of what a modded game would be like and it will show its flaws very quickly and the fact that there will be no modders to help this game will ultimately drive away the fans.

    You've obviously been playing a different version of FO76 than me, because it isn't riddled with bugs, and the gameplay isn't bland... and as for challenge LOL it's way more challenging than most games I've played on the market lately. 

    The challenge has to do with the leveling disparities as you progress through areas, as well as enemies that people may not be familiar with.   I'm around level 20 now, and I was traveling through an area with level 16 mobs.. but barring my way across a gorge that I needed to get through was a Snallygaster, level 30, hidden within other roving enemies that I was slowing wading through.  As a long range sniper, going slow and taking out enemies would generally feel less challenging,  but if you've never fought a Snallygaster, you're in for a surprise.  

    They do these things often, where you have tough enemies in their own right, but then they pump the difficulty by throwing in high level enemies in with the low.  I've also had puzzle missions where I've been required to find things by actually reading text,  or I've had to complete objectives in time frames that required near perfect execution to achieve.  Things you rarely if ever see in online games. 

    People can say what they will about FO76, apart from the bugs on the PC version, which are valid criticism, most of the hostility towards the game seems to be that people dislike change, and plan to resist it.  

    Through and through FO76 is a fallout game in every facet.  I'm excited to be able to finally get in for good this week.

    You forgot to add the "sponsored" tag because it's obvious you're lying through your teeth.

    But of course, i forget, gaming journalism here doesn't do that, isn't that right?

    Which one is it? Click bait, trolling readers, or sponsored?

    I wouldn't say that was genuine out loud, even if it was.  :D

    @Gruug I don't mean to quibble but could you please state where you saw that about the stash size?  All I've seen so far is that the 400 pound stash size is intentional.  I've been searching the past few days on this subject and only found where other people are having stash size issues and they want more capacity but nothing solid from the Dev's.  I really would like to read this if you found a source.  Thanks in advance.
    It was mentioned by the lead dev in one of their interviews a short while ago. It was also just mentioned in the up coming day one release patch notes. However, it does not say it will actually be IN that patch nor does it say the amount to which the stash will be expanded. The way I read the notes was more along the lines that the bump up in stash size will not be what we (or I) was led to believe previously.

    Everything I've seen and heard about it seems to indicate that without actively seeking out other players, it's largely empty and bug ridden.  So I guess it may emulate a sandbox in the vein of launch day SWG, in those respects.  But with fewer players per server.

    15 years of progress, and that's where we are.

    Why don't we just call this game what it is? ….. Lazy

    That's way wrong. There are events that run where players congregate, and you can run into players anywhere, but they are shown on the map so you can avoid them if you want, or meet up with them.

    Thus far, in almost every case, when I happened upon another person, they wanted to group up, unless they wanted to kill me.  Luckily I never fired back at anyone who attacked me, so I didn't chance losing any of my many, many crafting items.

    haha it's a good plan. I wish it was easier to to find places to store junk. I end up walking around overweight for hours.

    I can def see that wandering the wastes alone will become a fairly boring way to spend your time in Appalachia.

    The questing is pretty standard fair, but the world does seem very isolated and lonely due to no NPCs that aren't hostile.

    That being said, I can see this game (especially at end-game) being an absolute blast/riot when playing with a group of friends.

    Certainly some similarities there to early MMO design.

    They are usually extremely blatant with their sponsored tags when they are sponsored. 

    This seems more like a "Lets say something and stir everything up to get more interaction". 

    I will probably try the game but I don't agree that it's a sandbox that I've been looking for.

    I won't write off this game because its only 24 players per world or whatever. I'll write it off because its a terrible game which has no point and no reason to exist.

    To add: The game has NPCs. They just aren't what you know "standing still waiting for you" kind of NPCs. Most NPCs are tied to quests or events, so they act in a dynamic way within the world.

    You'll maybe find a courier standing somewhere. Or activate a guard robot to patrol the streets while you scort him (you and other players around the are).

    Don't waste your time or money, its a dud. Replica of 4 with all its exploits just set to a 2 co-op/4 multi player game ((24) err... i think that is what ass they pulled the 24 out of).

    This is no Fallout. It's a rust rip-off to get quick money. Murphy should maybe review more fortnite as Fallout is not a joke franchise.

    Any true fan of the series knows there is a proper story and a way for you, as a player, to be a part of it. This game is not about story, it's about your AP drain when you melee a ghoul. Absolute disgrace to the fallout series.

    AVOID.

    Any other Fallout game, I would be right there in it, free or not. I don't see any reason to not allow people play offline/alone - or is the fact you can encounter other players the only reason the game was made?

    The only reason you guys make stories about this game and push MMO label is your site, nothing else.

    Why are you WTFing informative posts.

    The game has NPCs. I just sold my items to some and got quests from another.
