Got to thinking about this today for some reason. Bethesda is missing a couple of MUST HAVE features in Fallout 76. Here’s just what I came up with off the top of my head:
- Social Media sharing from the Photo Gallery. I play on XBox, and its kind of a pain to share an image. Unless I’m missing something obvious that is.* I have to take the pic in Fallout. Then go in and screenshot the thing with XBox and have it upload to my One Drive. I don’t use One Drive for jack, so being able to directly send these images to Facebook or Twitter or <insert social media site> would be killer. (*Please let me know if I missed that day at Fallout School!)
- Holiday events. Now, yeah, I get that we’re dealing with a world-wide audience that may or may not celebrate the same pagan winter festivals everywhere. But COME ON why oh WHY is there no Red Santa suit and hat in the game right now? Why were there no Thanksgiving mutant turkeys roaming the wastelands in November at launch? The game is set in the USA, it would only make sense. Rename the Radstags as reindeer, give the legendaries a red nose or something cool…. Valentines Day and Easter are fast approaching, Bethesda. We need some holiday themed stuff in there. This is an “online service” type of deal, right?
- Stability. I’m just saying. Nothing more frustrating than owning a workshop/settlement, getting all the collectors set up, and then KICK you’re out.
- COAL. We are in West Virginia, right? Let’s leave politicks aside, but that seems like a no-brainer to not have coal as an element or resource in the game, same as wood or lead or steel, etc. That’s just me.
I dunno, just a couple of things to kick this endeavor off. I’m NOT one of these “everything sucks and is terrible” type of bloggers. Just a friendly suggestion from your player base. As if anyone will actually see this at all, lol.
EDIT: aaaaaand not long after I post this, Bethesda updates the game and puts the Santa suit/hat and a couple other holiday doodads in there. Unfortunately the set is 2000 “atoms” so ouch, yeah, WTF man. Takes a little while to grind that in-game, or you fork over the real bucks for the fake bucks. Not happening for cosmetics, unless its really fricking cool stuff like Iron Maiden T-shirts for my character and stuff lol.
