    Well shoot. While it looked impressive, it felt a bit short and dare I say too easy for the full price. No regrets, I did have fun with it... just maybe not enough.

    Lamon Gamon!! It's post launch review time.. and we're not the only one giving this game a bad score... it seems many reviewing this game are giving it 5/10 or refusing to review it at all!!!

    Instead of wasting time with this mess of a game, they should have focused on a new proper singleplayer fallout. Why must everyone go with the mmo theme nowadays...

    Proper single player games are hard to make and milk.

    Wait a minute. I just released I'm old enough for there to be people who haven't played Skyrim.

    It's all about the cash, and microtransactions payout longer and better if you can run a multiplayer "gambling den" / "battle royale" suckering players into a "never-ending game" vs selling a single transaction "product in a box" single player game.

    That is the reason for the demise of great single player games with great stories.

    And how we ended up with "Fallout 76" with no NPC's and no stories.

    I do not really like games in the Fantasy genre. I prefer the use of guns and technology rather than swords and magic, but that is just me.
