    Well what else are you going to use after emerging from a vault into a nuclear wasteland? Your old currency? Pffft.

    I can't believe anyone could seriously suggest that Bethesda didn't entirely think this through.
    Yep. I thought about this for what... 7-13 seconds, ok 14 at a stretch, and would propose a barter system where each item has an inherent value that you can trade for other items or services. The values are not known to the player the game will simply grey out items/services you can't afford. While this may sound like a pain in-game (how do you know how much tat do you need to gather?) that's roughly how it would turn out IRL. Maybe add some coercion type (talk/fight/do favours) options to unlock actions/goodies if you don't have enough stuff to trade.
    I remember when Fallout 2 didn't have caps as currency, because the NCR was advanced enough to be able to start printing money. You'd find caps in the game and the text would read "a useless bottlecap, apparently some idiots used this for money, but not any more!"

    And then Fallout 3 came out and it was back to caps. Because caps are cool, right? (I guess it was also set in a different part of America, but it still felt a bit dumb for the world in the future to regress back to using stupid caps)

    You know how the Fallout 76 engine is held together by twine, contact adhesive and Toddís manliness?

    Turns out their customer support system has similar jank.

    They should just call it a day and sell their franchises. I honestly wouldn't mind that at this point.

    FO4 is really souring on me again. I mean, the game gets a mysterious 400MB patch on Steam, looking at the news section all I see is Fallout 76 promo article bullshit and no patch notes, and the game runs worse than it did last week.

    Load times are also getting worse, to the extent that I'm now surfing EG during load screens and sometimes wonder if the game crashed (it hadn't).

    And now I finally notice the input lag. OMG. At times button presses don't register at all, or with a several second delay. This all reminds me of the PS3 version of Skyrim which got slower the bigger the save file became. Dreadful stuff.

    And since I'm on Survival mode, and the restrictions are really grating on me now. Played this for 30 odd hours and might just switch back to Normal and rush through the parts of the game I haven't covered in previous playthroughs.

    Has everyone seen the cleansing the wasteland YouTube videos? Including the first bit when he meets the gays and gets a disease cure off them?

    Might be the funniest thing I've seen in some time. Also plenty of videos mocking W Y-P's hysterical overreaction article.

    @DUFFMAN5 after you put disc one in it should start the download of the update that contains everything, you shouldnít have to bother with the other disc, hope this helps 😀

    Fuck yeah, I absolutely despise survival mode in FO4.

    In FO:NV it was a flavour setting more than anything else, so I understand them wanting to ramp it up a bit in FO4.
    Having to sleep to save is just not fun though, esp. when combined with randomly spawning legendary enemies. Luck out and you'll encounter several groups in a row (even in an area where you should otherwise be able to manage fine) and you're suddenly out of consumables/ammo. 'Oh well, I'll just play the last hour all over and hope that doesn't happen again'

    Whoever thought that was a good idea should be fed to a pack of deathclaws.

    Bethlolster implemented 21:9 support with the latest patch. People had been unofficially getting it by editing the .ini files but it wasnít a good solution because it literally just stretched the picture out, including all of the UI.

    Have a guess how Bethesda enables it...

    Also, I didnít know it was possible for someone to sound like a human sounding like a text to speech program trying to sound like a human, but there you go.

    To be fair, we haven't exactly given them any hint of rejecting the other buggy messes they have shat out in the past so you can't exactly blame them for thinking they could do it again.

    I think that is because the thread has been hijacked by people who dont like the game and never will.

    It's a bad game and if you like it you're a bad person.

    Exactly. This wave of completely unfair criticism is keeping away the true fans who know the real truth about this stunning masterpiece.

    If you enjoy it write about it. As far as I can tell there isn't a ban on people writing about games they enjoy, even if some people don't agree. Unless you're saying people aren't allowed to criticise things? So which one is it?

    I could understand the ire if you'd come in saying "well I like it" and we'd responded, "you're wrong, you fucking cunt"

    But no one did.

    No one has been abused for liking the game.

    I'm struggling to see the abuse and insults directed at people in this thread. If you like the game talk about it, obviously be prepared to defend yourself because we're going to call you a fucking stupid cunt with no sense after you do.
