The reviews of this game have been less than stellar, but I'm still curious about it since my happiest times in Fallout games are when I'm off on my own anyway. Has anyone ventured in yet?

I don't know anyone as yet who has tried this. I would be interested to hear about it, too. wave

Nope, I started scanning as soon as the gameplay videos came out and haven't seen anything that compelled me to try another MMO. The main comments I've seen beside the bugs and glitches is that it's boring. Once you put a few days into it, you run out of interesting things to do. Apparently, other than the boss fights there isn't much in the way of interesting and engaging NPC's.

Hm. Boring/bugs seem to be common themes among reviews. How on earth did they get this so wrong? Why not just Fallout 5? I would have jumped in with both feet.

Think they were trying to cater to the PVP crowd. Bad move.

Here's a recorded live-stream review done by Alanah Pearce this morning. Pretty much gives the impressions that Bethesda really didn't do much to improve or change the environment to make it compelling. Luckily she runs into a nice level 50 player who was watching her stream and gave her a couple tips.

Added AngryJoe's Fallout 76 Angry Review for a good laugh. *Warning* Joe's language is very "colorful" lol He makes some valid points though. Especially about the unfulfilled promises by Bethesda on the quality of the game.

Angry Joe makes me laugh. I often find myself agreeing with him.

Obsidian made the best Fallout games, period.

Still haven't forgiven them about KOTOR2 yet though.

Anyway, I hope this doesn't end the franchise. I've loved all of the Fallout games since the first one, and hope to be playing fallout 10 someday. I mean, sneaking through a blasted, ruined city with an arsenal of cool weapons, zillions of places to explore, and endless level-ups. Killing supermutants with a teddy bear...what's not to love?

Yup, that junk shooter while heavy as a son of a gun, can sure be fun. grin

All this talk about Fallout made me start a new game of F4. The varied exploration is awesome and the NPC's, while somewhat repetitive when you run by the same ones more than once, can be entertaining as can the companions. I just picked up that super mutant Strong as a companion again. I still laugh out loud at some of his random comments, "Me getting hungry, need someone to eat." lol Two things that I've never been a big fan of, even from the original iterations of Fallout are certain aspects of the character development tree and the inventory control. Throwing those uh, "features" as they stand into an MMO that's populated with nothing but basic foes, repetitive bosses and what seem to amount to an abundance of "scavenger hunt" style quests is definitely a recipe for failure. How shallow did they think the average gamer is to remove everything that was good about F3, FLV and F4? smirk

Seriously. What were they thinking? They couldn't possibly have market-tested the concept. Sheer hubris on somebody's part.

This video review by Camelworks was very good
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-LA2Pubi_w

It shows a lot of what the game looks like, including some interesting areas to explore.
The video starts out with a 3¼ minute intro, then the positive aspects, then goes into the bad parts -- the lack of a good story, ignoring previous lore, lack of NPC's, and the various bugs.

If you're mainly interested in exploring by yourself, the game may eventually be worth considering -- provided they work out the bugs.
