    Wow, that's pathetic. Good job Beth, you guys replaced Ubi in my publisher sh!t list and I really didn't like those guys for being obsessed with DRM.

    all the big publishers it seemed had their wtf moment this year.

    EA/dice with battlefield/front they shorted 300 million or so.

    Blizzard with the con and what you do not all have phones moment? Insulting idiotic but not really defcon levels of get fd.

    bethesda and their cash grab greed moment, which seemed to lead to a cascade of f ups. Which is STILL rattling on.

    What a timeline.

    I'm one of those who think that Bethesda eventually plans to release paid mods or "mini-DLCs", like what they did with the Creation Club. Free mods would be detrimental to their future money-making plans so they need to put a stop to it at all cost.

    The way I see it Bethesda have looked at the absolutely immense amount of people downloading mods for Skyrim on Nexus Mods and then gone "how do we monetize that?".... we then saw them trying to turn modders into a form of income with the whole paid mods debacle on steam, when that blew up in their face they then went and made the creation club for Skyrim and Fallout 4, those being single player games meant they couldn't control people the way they wanted because people could still download mods outside of creation club, which then leads to Fallout 76, which in retrospect is a rushed product that I believe was made because they want to control mods and in tern sell "official" mods.

    Bethesda execs killing mods, circa late 2010's

    [​IMG]

    Their open world games wouldn't have anywhere near the online presence or popularity without the PC modding scene. Just look at the games that have come out since the start of this console generation, they've been left behind and I don't see any improvement on the horizon. Every piece of news that comes out seems to affirm the rot that's in Bethesda.

    Why do people even continue to order crap related to Bethesda Games?

    This is why they continue to do this, cuz people keep buying their crap.

    Stop supporting, so there is no need to complain.

    Let them run out of business.

    Sorry, but that kind of logic makes no sense.
    Why would anyone want them to go out of business?

    Fallout 76 was a disappointment, a mistake... and a big misstep. Yes.
    But, even with that, you know for a fact, when Starfield is released... it will sell insanely well. Same with Elder Scrolls 6.

    And even then, as long as they keep publishing titles like DOOM, Wolf, PREY and DisHonored... they are not going to have any problems financially.

    $79, I don't have a console though, I got the controller for my pc.... xD

    Looks like this Fallout 76 special is for all controllers not just the elite, I guess JB HI-FI have lots of left over copies.

    Lol they'll be keeping it at check out counters like candy any day now :D That's a nice controller ... I had a lunar white xbone controller but had to replace it with the ordinary black one. Still, great controller. Welcome to the Flexible PC Master Race :p

    I had the Logitech F310 Wired Controller but it's kinda crap for new games but it was really cool for retro emulator games xD


    Does that mean Fallout 76 is junk food now :T

    I think anyone actually interested in buying the game, would have by now. An extra pound or two isn't going to make any difference.

    this thing needs to be put out of its misery.

    bethesda is kinda fd tho, if the game drops to 5 dollars because noone will touch it, but if they they say f it make it f2p tomorrow, anyone that paid anywhere near retail is going to be pissed.

    but if they just ignore that and try to let it ride that is going to anger people also.

    i say pull the game take 3 4 months bust ass fixing and improving the thing and relaunch it. just yank the servers down, until then. if they do it properly at lest make the game playable, and improve some game systems and decisions. they could relaunch in a "clean slate" state, in that it has not been an endless trainwreck of gaffs since 76 launched. a month or two breather from all this would do bethesda and the game some good.

    kinda what WB/rocksteady did for arkham knight they simply pulled the entire game took a few months got it playable and relaunched it. worked out decently for that game. and whatever beth is doing now is not working.

    ^^Yeap, and that is the catch 22 this game is in now, why buy the game today when you can wait another day and see if it drops again, i for one would buy it for £10 but why should i when it is dropping so consistently, i may as well wait at this stage and see just how low this thing can go, and i doubt i am the only one doing this. lol
