Yeah, it's particularly concerning that Bethesda seems so unsure about basic features like player count this late in development. I fear this'll basically be early access, but idk.
Might seem like a basic feature to you, but player count is something that can be figured out by playtesting quite quickly and can be tweaked quite easily.

Yeah, but player count affects so much of the game. Everything from spawn rates to equipment drops would probably need to be tweaked with a change to player count. Even textures and performance could be affected. That's just one example. It feels like they shrug at half the questions. I hope I'm wrong, but I think some skepticism is in order.

It affects the game for sure, but they have much more important things to pay attention to early in development. In a team-based shooter player count would be important early game, but here, where you forge your own teams, it doesn't really matter, the biggest team is going to win either way.

It's a valid concern, but I also think it's important to consider that their engine supports a lot of scaling based on a variety of variables. So if they adjust the amount of players in a server/in a party, quests and regions could be designed to automatically update based on player level and player density. Since it's online, I'd assume that there's no difficulty options so (hopefully) a lot of focus went on early in development that the basic aspects of the game could be adjusted depending on a few key aspects, especially in terms of the quantity of players.

If they wanted to go a path like they have, I think they should've done it as a rogue-like game, where you have all people in the vault, but go out to recruit people or establish a community, I'd still think it was a bit sad that it's not the older fallouts, but I think it'd fit the theme better tbh.

making one of the older fallout-like games in the IPs current state would be the worst desicion Bethesda could make.

By older I meant 3 / NV, and aye you're right, but It makes me sad.
lol nerd
but i agree, while i liked f4 making something more akin to 3 would be much better. specially if they could do those spicy fucked up moral stuff that was in 3
 
So yea this game is looking like total shit :vbwtfisthisshit:
That's just like, your opinion, man. But personally I think I'll enjoy it because I've always wanted to be able to explore part of the wasteland with my friends. I dont expect anything groundbreaking but I think it'll be a fun time waster for me at the very least.
 
How hilarious is it that FO76 gets review-bombed and is now on Black Friday specials for $20 off?! I mean, the game just released last week and is already discounted. lol So much for a AAA Bethesda game. They are the ultimate dumbasses. The only FO game they’ve done right so far is FO3. 4 was an abomination, and now they do this with 76. 😂

It’s a “3 strikes and you’re out” policy for me and game franchises, but Bethesda has already wasted 2 of their 3. Either hand it off, or actually make a Fallout RPG.

I've not played it nor do I intend to. ((You don't need to play a game to decide if it's not for you.))

But from what I've seen, it's shit, and it's not just ''bandwagon jumps'' either.
I've seen many reviews from the BGS Crew and people who don't like Fallout 3, NV or 4 and still hates this game.
I seen the NV dudes and NMA crew tear it to shreds too.
So I believe the majority of reviews are accurate, and from what I've seen I agree.

I watched gameplay and I think the only good thing about 76 is that there are some parts of the map that seems interesting, but the rest seems to be a sub-par slog through a slow and bland game, with almost no story to compell or captivate the player.

From what I've seen I'd say the user reviews are not ''harsh'' infact I'd think above 3/10 would've been far too generous.

I also believe that 55 was far too generous for the critic scores.

I think even Fallout 3 was done wrong. In many ways, it was worse than 4.
