    you think tossing human rights and freedom under the bus would be the worst thing a us company could do this year, but this bad joke continues.

    I wonder how many people still type the/a url in the address bar instead of just “its name“ to search or look something up. :D

    ^^^So this being broken has to be a positive because at least it is consistent with the rest of the F76 game....right!. Lol

    That's just clickbait. Nobody "obtained a Bethesda website."

    These garbage youtubers are starting to really annoy me.

    What the individual did was obtain the domain for falloutfirst.com and then proceeded to mock Bethesda with it regarding Bethesda's new subscription service for a full priced video game.

    Even bbc news reported on it, not just "youtubers".

    He registered a new domain. He did not obtain it from Bethesda or hacked the site. This is just clickbait. "Ooh, someone managed to obtain a Bethesda site and mock them, how did they manage that? I have to watch this video to find out, I guess."

    Christ, I love everything that's happening surrounding this. I just can't believe they looked at their dumpster fire of a game, and didn't think that pulling this crap would drag Bethesda's name through the dirt even more.

    They deserve everything that comes to them, they've been selling games held together with duct tape for far too long.

    I find this somewhat humorous... this is the first post on the Bethesda Game Studio's official twitter since dropping the Fallout 76 "subscription" announcement..

    I'm really starting to think Bethesda is going to strait up ignore the backlash and just proceed without even acknowledging how much they have messed up.

    I have to say, despite not paying a single cent for F76, it has brought me boundless quantities of fun!

    The latest update is just as entertaining as the release, I mean reading about it from the side is.

    But realistically, the game is crap and probably didn't even pay for itself. So Zenimax/Bethesda has decided to cut development and just squeeze any money from the few people who still play it in order to at least make some profit. That's why the big patch has more bugs than working features, as it was developed by intern who mostly serves coffee with the cooperation of the late night janitor. I mean the logic is kinda sound, e.g. EA operates like this for decades, it just destroys the IP

    Actually probably the smartest thing they can do.
    If they acknowledge it, and try to apologize and fix it... they will get blasted with "damage control", if they try to defend it... again, blasted.

    Sometimes, the best move is to just move on without saying anything.
    And this is something I wish more studios would do. It's something Randy Pitchford needs to learn, more often then not... responding, defending... arguing... always makes you look worse.

    Especially when Randy always comes across as a petulant little kid.

    Exactly.
    It's made me lose a tremendous amount of respect for GBX.
    After their Half-Life expansions, and BiA series... I felt GBX would be a top studio for me. But, I've never been a big fan of Borderlands, and then Battleborn... and with Randy's overly childish tantrums on twitter...

    I've all but decided GBX are simply better left by the wayside.

    Yes, it's more or less the same for me. Borderlands never gripped me (I don't like looter-shooters), Battleborn was a MP game first, so that was not interesting to me (it also died after a week), and Colonial Marines (for which I was very psyched) was a disaster and a complete scam.

    I leave Randy and his antics be. He has nothing to say, and his entire macho veneer is easily shattered with a few pokes.

    Makes me sad they own the Duke Nukem IP.
    Which I feel will never get a chance to shine ever again.
