I like Fallout 76 it’s pretty good tbh but this is mental!

Kinda glad The Outer Worlds reviewed well, its written and conceived by the creators of the Fallout franchise after all..

What on earth are they doing.

Do they have literally any PR department at all.

I bet Joe Vargas and Jim Sterling didn't know where to start

So I'm told one of them had a 12 minute video of just laughing.

Can't watch some vids on the hospital WiFi so can't confirm that.

I've seen the Joe one and there is certainly more than just laughter ( :slol: ) although that's not to say it's lacking in that department!

At what point do we have to start consider whether they’re doing it on purpose?

Maybe they really do feel bad about not giving Obsidian a bonus for making the best Fallout game, and this free press is what they're doing about it?

Looks like Bethesda was slow off the mark registering the domain for falloutfirst too:

The monetisation strategy for Elder Scrolls 6 is going to be interesting.

It comes off like some deranged plan to make the original 76 appear a good deal by releasing a version that costs £100 extra and is actually worse.

Unless they do a remarkable job with Starfield I think Elder Scrolls 6 may already be doomed.

Pretty remarkable turnaround given how well Skyrim sold. I bought Skyrim 3 times and I was all in for the next game but what the company are doing now is something I can't ignore or want so I have a feeling I'm going to pass which is a shame but they only have themselves to blame.

A bit premature to write off TES 6. We don't know anything about it yet.
