Yes, disappointed is exactly how I feel. I still love Fallout, I still love TES, and I've always looked past the bugs and glitches that their games are infamous for because at their core they remain excellent adventures, with plenty to do and see, where you could lose yourself in for hours at a time. However, this whole recent scenario regarding Fallout 76 has left me a little wary of any future games Bethesda put out.

This is still how I feel about Fallout 76

Ooh, ‘Worst Game Release Ever’ might be a fun discussion to be had.

I’ll always remember the starring role our own dear KKlein had in Driv3rgate.

That's the gold standard right there I think.

Daikatana is the old classic alongside Rise of the Robots.

With the game being reduced just a week after launch I feel like the 76 of the games title will soon be the reduction in percentage off the price.

Fallout 76% off.

LMAO

The real canvas bag was too expensive to give to people who paid for it, because they gave them away for free to a load of Youtube fanboys instead. :lol:

The response from the guy who did it is as strawberry floating pathetic as you'd expect.

NathanTheHicc, a senior in high school from the US, said: "My version of the incident is more or less the same as the public has taken it, the only differences being the fact that I don't hate gay people. It was just a late night of having fun and after the first encounter (seen on my channel) we felt it would be fun to offend them somehow. You can call that evil but I think it's just playful immaturity.

"I do not regret the incident. I will not apologise given the opportunity. I don't plan on doing anything like this in the future but to be fair I didn't plan the initial incident, I just found them and decided to go through with it."


"I don't hate gay people, I just think homophobic abuse and violence against gays is funny."

Credit where it's due: well done to Beth for banning this strawberry float for life.

The whole "I did it for a larf, I don't really hate gays" sums up the ignorance of these people.

I'm not sure if banning someone from this game counts as punishment.

This bit is also ridiculous:

there's no in-game player report function in Fallout 76.


We were given a link to report the players but had issues with it.
The site asked for a video file of the incident but the accepted file types weren't video files. So we couldn't send one.

Aren’t their any laws by which these a-holes can be prosecuted? I would have thought that constituted a hate crime?
