FALLOUT 76 (and series)
#1
New game Room   So new Shiny things...  Like Fallout 76






Large open world game 4x the size of Fallout 4s main map.

Online based survival game but with small servers so not tons of humans on each.

This is a big change from basically every other fallout game (except maybe tactics but I never got to play that one)

As it finally multiplayer.  But don't look at it like you typical fallout game its more in the survival aspect of game genre while in the fallout universe.

some good info in the Article.


Anyone else picking this up?   My power helmet is already preordered.

*I'm a huge fallout junkie with the Brotherhood of Steel symbol tattooed on my arm.

I'll watch it on Twitch when it releases, but no, not going to buy it at launch. Not a fan of those kind of games, and I would dread the plethora of issues this game will have on launch, from servers to gameplay.

I might have waited but I found a power helmet edition lol..  I know ill put at least 200 hours into this game so that wasn't to bad a price. (especially after they release the private servers)

Fallout is one of only two games that I've ever preordered, and likely would do it again. But I'm going to wait and see on this.

I've played since the first game (no, not Fallout 3, the old one back 30ish years ago), and before that (Wasteland). But I'm not a big fan of the multi-player aspect. I like the 'play, fail, reload and try again' of Fallout where I get to have the perfect Apocalypse. I like figuring out the puzzles without some ***hat in my way.

Yeah I feel you there is definite concern about the multiplayer in FO76.  But ill take the approach of not expecting my normal fallout experience.
I do have faith in Bethesda and ID software though... those are 2 of the few game makers I trust...  


And I too started on fallout 1 was back in the 90s...   Haven't played Wasteland yet but grabbed the xbox version of wasteland 2.

Played two run throughs, will probably do a third before too long. It's not bad. There's a lot to do, but I felt there wasn't a ton of character development. To me, part of the fun has always been how choices impact your character, from creation through ending. Skimping on some abilities so you can carry more gear, becoming an adult film star, siding with ghouls lovers over people... you know, all the basic stuff. With Wasteland 2, it didn't seem to matter a ton on what you did, you were going toward the same ending anyway, it just changed a little on who you got there with.

I could see that maybe being an issue as instead of just one main guy you pick a squad.. I know in the fallout games you had companions but I don't know if it works the same... Been sitting on that game a few years now..   Trying to get to it but the back log keeps growing...

(for someone that doesn't have a ton of time to game I still buy games at a pretty consistent rate lol)
