There have been many TV shows and movies based around the post-apocalyptic genre, and it looks like we’ll be able to add one more to the list, and this time, it might also be one familiar to many gamers around the world. This is because the folks at Amazon will be creating a TV series based on Bethesda’s Fallout franchise.
One of the joys of playing an MMORPG is that you get to play with other people from all around the world. Unfortunately, one of the downsides to online gaming is that you meet all kinds of people, and not all of them are good. The good news for Fallout 76 players is that if you’d rather avoid these types of players, Bethesda has the answer for you in the […]
Last year when Fallout 76 was announced, it was revealed that there would be a Power Armor Edition which is basically like a collector’s edition. One of the selling points of the bundle is the Power Armor Helmet. We’re not sure how many people would actually put it on, but it seems that the helmets are now being recalled.
In the MMORPG scene, it’s hard not to look at Blizzard’s World of Warcraft for inspiration. The game has been around for more than a decade, but yet continues to rake a ton of money in for the developer. This is versus other MMORPGs like Star Wars: The Old Republic and Wildstar, both of which initially adopted the subscription model, but later switched to free-to-play.
There are some developers who adopt particularly tough stances against cheaters, such as Blizzard who outright bans Overwatch players who are caught cheating. However in the case of Bethesda, it seems that they plan on giving Fallout 76 cheats an opportunity to redeem themselves by writing an essay on why cheating is bad.
We’re not sure if this is mea culpa on Bethesda’s end for all the various Fallout 76 problems and controversies, or if it could simply just be Bethesda being in the festive spirit, but the company has announced that they will be giving Fallout 76 players a free copy of the Fallout Classic Collection.
The Fallout franchise is beloved by many, but Bethesda’s attempt with Fallout 76 is starting to leave many with a bad taste in their mouths. As some of you might have heard, the company replaced the canvas bag that was supposed to ship with the Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition with cheap nylon versions instead.
As with many games these days, in-game purchases have become a very common model used by developers and publishers to try and squeeze out more money from players after a game’s release. Unfortunately for Bethesda, it seems that the pricing they are using for Fallout 76 is rather questionable and has left a good many players fuming.
As some of you might have heard, Bethesda recently came under fire when gamers discovered that they had without warning or notification swapped out the canvas bag from the Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition with a nylon one. Citing the “unavailability of materials” at that time, Bethesda has since had a change of heart.
When Bethesda announced the Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition, it was priced at a whopping $200, but given all the goodies it offered, it seemed like it could be worth it for fans. However gamers who bought the bundle were upset to discover that the canvas bag that was supposed to come with the bundle was replaced with a cheap nylon version.
It was previously reported that Bethesda had come under fire from gamers who bought the $200 version of Fallout 76, the “Power Armor Edition”. This was because in the advertising materials, it was clearly shown and stated that players would be getting a canvas carrying bag, but without informing gamers, Bethesda made the switch to a cheap nylon bag.
Earlier this year Bethesda announced a special version of Fallout 76 called the Power Armor Edition. This basically contained a copy of the game, some other goodies, although the main draw is the bundled Power Armor Helmet along with a canvas carrying bag. Unfortunately gamers did not get what was promised.
Are you a fan of Bethesda’s Fallout franchise?

Fallout 76 is out this week and with the game focusing on online and multiplayer and without a single-player story campaign to follow, this means that a lot of the game’s success hinges on what Bethesda can offer to gamers post-launch. For those a bit worried about the game, especially since the Fallout franchise isn’t really known to be a multiplayer kind of game, you can rest assured as Bethesda […]
There are many gamers who are understandably opposed to the idea of microtransactions. The idea is that if you were to pay for a game, you should get access to the game in its entirety and not have certain content locked behind a paywall. Unfortunately for gamers, microtransactions is an extremely lucrative model so don’t expect to see it go away anytime soon.
While the Nintendo Switch is definitely getting a lot more love compared to its predecessor, the Wii U, there are still some games that are launching on the PS4 and Xbox One but aren’t launching on the Switch. Bethesda’s Fallout 76 is one of those games, and given that the company seems to be a staunch supporter of the Switch, many are wondering what gives?
NDAs are serious things and breaking them can have serious consequences. This is because sometimes NDAs are put into place to prevent information from being leaked to a competitor who might then try to come out with a product before the company does. It can also sometimes paint the product in a bad way, especially if it is a prototype or beta that is being shown.
Fallout: New Vegas is one of the more loved titles in the Fallout franchise and was developed by the folks at Obsidian. However if you are hoping that Obsidian might return for a Fallout: New Vegas 2 or another Fallout title in general, it seems that you probably shouldn’t get your hopes up just yet.
It is almost a guarantee that games these days feature microtransactions, which is a way for developers and publishers to keep making even after the initial purchase of the game is made. Bethesda’s upcoming Fallout 76 is no except and the game will feature microtransactions, but for those worried it being a pay-to-win kind of situation, Bethesda is reassuring that isn’t the case.
The upcoming Fallout 76 from Bethesda essentially sees the largely single-player RPG franchise transform into something of an MMO. As is the case with multiplayer games, there are bound be times when you run into players who seem to have no other intention other than to harass or grief you by killing your characters over and over again.
