I don't know, I mean how could something this size not slow down FO5. But hey to each their own. At least it wasn't a mobile game like Diablo.

LOL, you aren't kidding! FO5 will be slow because Starfield is priority #1 for them right now. FO76 was made from assets already on hand, for the most part. The wait for FO5 will be long and painful for hardcore fans, which is the ONLY reason I would EVER consider buying into this FO76 crap!

I want to, but I'm going to wait a couple weeks after release to see how bad the bugs are.

If everyone applied that to Fallout games nobody would buy them

If Bethesda released a non-buggy game gold would fall from the sky

Watched some beta clips on twitch, and read some beta reviews.

Super unimpressed. Gonna wait a year or so probably. Like Enab says, gotta let Bethesda work out the kinks, and lock down security for hackers (which were a VERY big problem in the beta).

I have read multiple people who were playing the beta say that they will not end up continuing with the main game. Storywise everything is on notes and recordings and such.

Its a big pass for me.

This game looks like a steaming heap. Maybe it'll go the Elder Scrolls online route and with enough work and improvements it'll have a longer shelf life than expected, but I don't expect them to get lucky a second time.

So 8 days after release it's 40% off on Humble Bundle Store, $48.00 CAD. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/fallout-76


What say you enaberif? Worth picking up?
