    I watched AlChestBreach's stream last night. He says he enjoys it but at the same time he said that he might play it for a few days until he gets bored of it. Considering how much time he logged into F3, NV & F4, only playing a few days for 76 doesn't look good for the game.

    On the plus side, he loved the marsupial mutation that lets him jump really high.

    I get a Star Wars Galaxies vibe from that game.

    Gaming-Sites rly don't help in this matter. German Gamestar has a poll up and only allows 1 vote, no multiple choice. Votecount is around 1150 atm, below/attached is the result.

    Bars from top to bottom:
    Scenario/World/Setting
    Characters
    Story
    Sidequests
    Fighting
    Random Encounters
    Factions
    SPECIAL-System
    Others

    Obviously above poll is absolutely poorly designed, I mean come on, if you only have ONE choice to make, what of the above will you select. "Oh, ofc. I play Fallout mainly because of Special. I spend hours and hours in it. Nah, totally not gonna choose story or setting here, SPECIAL is where its at."

    The only thing of relevance is people choose world over plot. And it shows.... But when going by above metrics, Beth could do a brahmin-herding simulator in the capital wasteland. Hmm. F76 DOES have 6 DLC, right?

    I wonder if we can launch a nuke and then if we have another code we can launch another nuke straight away or if there is some kind of limit. If you can launch multiple nukes with multiple, different codes, then we can launch a nuke, call the boss and then kill it with a second nuke.

    But they have to had put a limit on nuke strikes... Not even they would be that stupid as allowing multiple nukes in short time.

    So is anyone gonna buy and review the real life card packs for F76?
    I tried but the site wouldn't accept my phone number.

    So why can't the player contract the virus?

    Boy oh boy. Nuking the surface REGULARLY is Necessary to keep everyone safe.... Do these people even get the point of the series?

    So apparently the reason why there are "petrified corpses" next to intact buildings is not because the Nules magically only kill humans and leave property intact, but because of the Zombie virus that turns people into petrified corpses after a while, and it's a fungus. It's like Last of Us but writen by a 4 year old.

    Gotta love that there's no mention of this virus in the following games. I think Bethesda forgot you can't just add stuff to a prequel if you know the following games make no mention of it.

    Specially when they say in that setence "One of the few remaining nuclear I.C.B.M.s". So we have to nuke stuff regularly but there is only a few nukes... But in fact they are infinite in the game.

    Also why weren't those I.C.B.M.s automatically launched when the bombs start falling?

    Well, the Totally-not-a-Dragon Scorchbeast gives you a disease when it screams at you that debuffs all your special stats by -2, so I guess you can contract it.

    Nah, diseases only last a couple of minutes. Dysentery gets cured in 15 minutes, you know, like real dysentery.

    So sort of like this



    When will people realize that doctors and scientists specialized in studying diseases and developing cures and vaccines have been lying to them for ages. All the terrible diseases in the world can be so easily cured.

    Like usual Bethesda half asses good ideas. Diseases sound like they could potentially be an interesting mechanic by having our character contract them and have a variety of afflictions from them and they could get cured by visiting doctor and maybe they could kill you if left untreated... but no, Wacky debuff that lasts 15 minutes.

    Indeed, people perhaps taking precaution like not touching corpses or wandering in filthy water or into swamps, or taking cuts serious, cleaning themselves regularly or using vaccines. Roleplaying.

    I jest obviously. The idea of being able to launch a nuke to summon it and then a second to annihilate it would be a funny oversight though.

    Obviously not, but I thought that's something we already knew lol.

    Anyone who has played it or is playing it, I am curious about one little thing. There are some balloons in the Vault and on the entrance at the begining of the game. Can you shoot/attack those balloons? If so, how do they react? Can you walk up to them? How to they react? Are they solid objects that don't behave like balloons or did they at least not half ass the first thing you see in the game?

    I don't believe they do anything in any reactionary way but I can't remember exactly.
