you guys see the noclip doc that came out yesterday?

some TL:DW key points:
-you can play solo, but it is still online
-there will be PvE but no raiders or factions that we are familiar with from other games. AI combat will be against creatures/monsters and a group of ghouls called "the scorched"
-survival components are "lite". no tedious tasks or stat maintenance. no permadeath.
-24-32 players on a server/map
-the nuke thing is used as a way for players to increase the difficulty of an area and it's AI (and boosting pickups and drops). where a nuke is dropped will uniquely affect the creatures and weather systems of that area.
-DLC will be free. microtransactions will be in place (cosmetic only)





I'm feeling really good after watching that. Answered a lot of questions.

This is great news. It really feels like the tide is turning against pay to win games.

People are going to build some pretty crazy bases/camps.

So are any RMers actually playing this? The reviews have definitely scared me away from paying top-dollar for it, but ut was already reduced to $35 at one retailer for Black Friday. If it got down to $15, I think it looks fun enough for that price.

No, and I doubt I ever will unless significant updates happen.

Maybe this game has bombed hard enough to shock Bethesda into making a real Fallout game again.

I might pick it up on the cheap at some point but yeah i'm not really interested in this at the moment. Which is truly sad.

It's fun going on reddit and seeing all the idiots that pre-ordered the game complaining that it's exactly what Bethesda said it was going to be.

It sounds like it's a good time if you have someone to play with and don't go in expecting a traditional fallout game.

This thing seems to be getting eviscerated far worse than I thought. Whole lot of 3/10 and 4/10's out there. Angry Joe savaged it.

I still plan to pick it up on the cheap once it hits the shovelware bin, but i'm sooooo glad i went with RDR2 first.

Bethesda gave everyone who purchased this $5 of in-game currency as compensation.
