"Fallout 76," Sounds Like Big Ol' Mess
Reviews of, "Fallout 76," seem to range from thinking it has potential to outright declaring it a buggy monstrosity. For a multiplayer game it sounds awfully lonely, with most people just avoiding each other to accomplish little quests or build-up a camp, the game apparently is disgustingly buggy and crashes so often it is comical. Also, people who bought the game with an expensive collector's edition are mad that a nice tote they were promised turned out to be the equivalent of a plastic trash bag--but Bethesda is slowly sending out replacements now that a supposed, "Shortage," of the material for the bags has ended. Oh, and if you want to report a problem with the many bugs in the game or ask for your nicer bag, be wary as a glitch in Betheda's own system had people getting other individuals requests for support, and being able to see all their personal information. To say the launch of, "Fallout 76," hasn't exactly gone smoothly would be an understatement as flimsy as the initial collector's edition bag. Maybe eventually a workable and fun game will emerge as, "Fallout 76," gets extensive patches and updates. For now though, it is as messy and ruined as the post-nuclear wasteland it portrays.
