Ok, so I been watching to see how this game goes, and checking out people streaming the beta on Twitch. It looks beta and broken as hell. It looks like there is no serious competitive aspect worth a damn, since PVP is piss poor. We don’t have to care about doing well, or winning and losing. Just go around having good old Fallout times. It also only has microtransactions for purely cosmetic stuff, so we only have to pay the entry fee. It also looks way fun, despite its issues.
I can’t see myself playing this for an extended period of time, but I can see playing it to get through this cold winter. Since it’s multiplayer I don’t think we can wait for the $10 GOTY edition, like I’m still waiting for with Fallout 4. That means a $60 flat fee for preordering the digital edition on Amazon.
What I’ve decided is that if I can get enough other people to commit and actually play it together, then I’ll go for it. If I have to play alone, then it’s not worth it. Who is in who will actually commit to playing together on a somewhat regular basis for at least a month or three?
