Since my wife surprised me with the game, this will be a thread for my (and maybe some other folks' impressions). I'm not really expecting much with this game, though I love exploration and survival stuff. However, I absolutely hate other people; especially in my games

Very first impression. It's downloading at around 11 1/2 MB per second. Flat out my pc will download at about 20 MB/second so this isn't bad considering the game just released and it's prime time for American downloaders right now.

The Bethesda.net 76 download page looks plain goofy. Oh well

Well, she knew I played everything else Bethesda so far…So I downloaded the game, roamed the vault and exited. Found a machete and a crashed vertibird. The game then dumped me to desktop a few seconds later.

It hasn't really grabbed me at all yet. It feels like Fallout 4 with everyone dead except a few monsters. This was enough for tonight. We're supposed to get half a foot of snow overnight. If that happens, I'll load it up tomorrow since work probably won't happen.

So your proclamation about not buying Full Price Bethesda games was false?

Technically your wife bought it so it's a loophole.

Wife had a coupon for $30 off any game, so it wasn't horribly overpriced. We didn't get much snow 3" so I'm at work. I'll load it up for a few later tonight.

That's unacceptable. The general consensus around here is that you are not allowed to say anything positive about this game.

From the video: "Fallout 76 is dogshit". Sounds good to me too.

So… basically this is all the annoying parts of Fallout 4 stuck in its own game. But not even as good as that.

But he did. You missed the video I linked ages ago, when good old TB was still with us.
