the game lost me at "always online".

Always Online is not idea, but if there is no connection issues it should be good

I really don't get the push back against "always online". If my console or PC is online it's barely an afterthought. I could understand it 10-15 years ago but most of the civilized world has a constant internet connection. I'm not intending this comment as an insult, just a curiosity.

I think it's more the fact they didn't announce is as an MMO, must more a multpliplayer-but-singleplayer experience, no NPC's, just players, etc... Well it's innovative, that's for sure, hasn't lost me at all, in fact I can't wait to play with my brother.

always online has a very harsh reality not a lot of people tend to bring up and thats that ONE DAY, eventually this game will be useless and unplayable because they WILL WITHOUT DOUBT shut the servers down... i can and have still load up fallout 1,2,3, new vegas and 4 and fully enjoy what the games offer in a complete and functional form ... this will not be the case with always online crap like 76 sadly :/ its a very anti consumer way of making games IMHO because you are fully at the mercy of the game dev even more so than usual as if the game is at any point doing less than well and its no longer financially lucrative for them they can basically revoke your ability to play it entirely despite your purchase

1 thing you need to know, should be more than enough. Mandatory online.

people moaning about always online. there are so many games today that need to be always online. it‘s getting old. personally, i don‘t like the bright ambiente of this game. they should have started a new franchise and leave fallout be. fallout 4 was such a horrible trainwreck. and this one seems to continue the downward trend.

It’ mmo this is what people complain!!

If theres something I learned from GTA online its that 95% of the players will kill you on sight. That would get annoying in a Fallout game.

r3f1cul180d ago

yep.. this is what all games with unchecked PVP always devolve into... KOS always and forever and i can not stress this enough FORGET about getting any enjoyment out of this game as a solo player which i would think practically all fallout fans are O.o so this is a very peculiar move to me on every front ... just bizarre that they would alienate the core demographic of a franchise so entirely ...
