Xbox refunds usually take away the license for said game. I believe Steam does the same, and I don't think Sony allows refunds.

If the game is finished, I'll probably re-buy it.


FWIW, I've gotten a refund on PS4 before and it revoked the license.

This is based on sales in the UK but kind of funny that the Spyro remasters sold more than Fallout 76.

https://www.eurogame...than-fallout-76

And wow, didn’t realize how bad Fallout reviews have been so far. Not that many yet but the PS4 version has a 46 on Metacritic.

Honestly I didn’t have that much interest in it.

They should have pulled a Rockstar and had a dedicated SP campaign like a traditional Fallout game, and then added MP with some crossover in items, progression, etc.

 

Or a hub like Destiny where there's a lot you can do solo that feels SP even if it's a dynamic online world. Everything I've heard about it sounds like an okay MMO but not what anyone wants in a FO game.

I've played a bit of 76. The worst problems I've had are randomly stopping to load which fortunately hasn't happened in a fight and it froze once. My friend got stuck on a quest and couldn't figure out how to advance so he looked it up and apparently a decent amount of people are having that particular quest glitch and it doesn't advance when it should.

 

I have had fun with it playing with my friend and getting into trouble a few times. He's at least 5 levels ahead of me and kept dying on a quest so I went to help him, little did I know half the enemies were a few levels higher than he was so they were like 10+ levels above me. We died like 5 times but eventually were able to do it. 

 

It's not a perfect game and there are decent amount of things I hope they change but so far I don't regret spending $45 on it.

 

As far as xbox sales go, I deleted the 5 or so games in my cart. I don't think I'll be getting more than what I've bought already: QUBE 2, thumper and a pig controller from the microsoft store.

I love the Fallout universe never played the original PC Fallout game (read all the back stories though) but I've 100%ed 3,4 and most of NV.... I understand how 76 isn't everyone's cup of tea and there are some improvements to be made but I'm still having a blast with it despite the fact I haven't had many steady teammates. I think working with your buddies is what would really make things fun...

Here's a pretty decent interview with inXile's founder regarding the acquisition. I didn't realize he announced his retirement last year, so I guess we'll see if he sticks to his statement here of planning to be around for a long time.

I think you're overestimating Bethesda's actual abilities. They've essentially made one game over and over since Morrowind, with a different skin every other time. Their strong suit has always been environmental story-telling and it seems like that's the one thing they got right in 76. I don't know if they really look at other games and take a lot of ideas from them, the only thing that really comes to mind is the voiced protagonist in 4 clearly being inspired by the Bioware way of doing things. Seems like they took some basic stuff for 76 from survival games, and maybe Borderlands in terms of how co-op and PVP works, but didn't fully understand what does and doesn't work about how those elements are implemented.

 

But yeah, I think best case scenario would have at least been a traditional main quest, maybe with fewer (not zero) NPCs to help draw you in, and then have all the other elements designed with multiplayer in mind. Things like side or radiant quests and general exploration that are semi-mindless to begin with, as well as the public events, boss battles, and Nuke endgame. Another thing I think really hurts the concept of humans are all players, is that you can not set up permanent settlements. There can't be any real player made towns or trading posts with longevity because your CAMP isn't persistent, it's basically a world reset whenever you log in, in that regard.

If you just started you wont be able to find it, you have to finish the tutorial first. Have to get over level 20 and get your Horizon band so you can connect to the "real world" then you can join the team.

Cast of the Seven Godsend is a decent Ghosts n goblins homage. Just be aware that it's loaded with broken achievements and the translation is bad enough to rescue the president.

Thanks, guys. I was confusing joining a Team for the Club but I will keep Club Name for when I reach that level. I was searching for CheapAssGamer and found a few drivers with (CAG).

Saw on RESETERA that Halo 4 was the best selling 360 title on the NPD/US charts on the retrocharts for exclusives only.

 

Halo Reach also outsold Halo 3. That's crazy to me considering all the hype Halo 3 had. That also means 343 had the best selling Halo lol.

It’s probably because of the larger install base. By the time Reach came out, you could get copies of Halo 3 really cheap

Do you have an xbox friend in CAG? They can send you an invite and you can join (you get an xbox message outside the game) right away. Someone had invited me before I started playing it and I had CAG drivatars from the start.

I'm wondering the same thing. I've been stuck on 7 for a while and I'm on Tier 41.

Difficult to say since the names here don't match the ones on Live.

 

 

Edit - sorry, too many things going on. I'm actually on Tier 9 Forza Score wise. Tier 41 is for FM7.

Halo 4 shouldn't have existed.

Halo 4 shouldn't have existed.

It's pretty mind boggling if it's going by revenue as well. Granted all those Halo 3 Legendary ended up going for dirt cheap. I ended up picking one up for $20 years after 3's release.

 

Halo 3 was supposed to be the last one. But it appears people did NOT want Halo to end. Halo 4 sales justified that, and Reach outselling Halo 3 was pretty big to.

 

Makes me wonder how big Halo Infinite is going to be, especially if they ever get a Battle Royale mode.

If you have Game Pass, I recommend checking out Rime. I booted it up just to get an achievement for the punchcard and ended up playing the whole thing. It's not a long game, like 6 hours or so. It def takes some inspiration from Ico but thankfully no helpless companion along for the ride. Puzzles are fun though not super challenging. Platforming isn't frustrating cuz you always respawn more or less right where you died.
