    Are the quests fun? Or is it kill x, gather x.

    The main quest is currently short and not that intriguing but they are set to expand that with Wastelanders with dialogue choices and consequences with the Raider and Settler factions and sub factions. Nothing too concrete with the information about the updated main quest but they promise it's going to be on the same vain as your typical Fallout RPG main quest.

    The side quests are the real interesting ones and there is a plethora of them from silly random ones to more substantial and interesting ones. I love the Lying Lowe quest line regarding hunting down Cryptids for example.

    Events and daily quests are your typical kill this, loot this and interact with this deal, something to trudge through to get some rarer and useful gear, caps or chems etc.

    It's mostly fixed. Definitely not crashing as often and almost all of the exploits have been patched out, especially the ones causing server crashes. I'd say it's almost up to par with what a final release product it should have been.

    It's a shame that it nearly took 11 months for that to happen.

    If anyone wants to get into this game but wants a bit of a helping hand starting out or getting some information, hit me up in game. My main account is elekstrom though I do occasionally play with a mule account called hydroforge too.

    I'm also on discord with MKULTRA#3040 with a bunch regularly playing Aussies so hit me up if you want in.

    I like the daily quest: Someone to Talk To. Experimenting on animals, shooting them with syringes and they talk back to you.

    Relatively speaking, even compared to other BGS games, the Fo76 main quest just sucks. Feels like long line of tutorial and introduction quests to each faction.

    Thanks. Sounds like it will be a good game to add to the list.

    It's been many many years since I played through Morrowind, but I remember the main quest as basically 100% this, considering that you basically take over Vivec's role in the universe (IIRC).
    I moved on to other games after I acquired Umbra and enough relevant perks to basically one-hit every single enemy that I came across.

    I guess it's good that 76 offers a bit of variety from this formula in endgame, although TBH I'd still prefer running around one-hitting everything and exploring interesting side-quest interactions rather than continuing with an endless "go here / kill x / gather x" grind.
    Maybe once they fully implement non-robotic NPC's I'll get interested... but there's already so much other stuff out there that is offering a complete experience from the word go...
    And there's always the option of doing a new Mod Organiser build for New Vegas... the very definition of replayability.
    BGS gonna have to work HARD to convince me that it's worth spending the cash on 76, after all the bullshit so far.

    Hey, you might have bought a key from a different region. Easy fix is to run a VPN of that region to register and you can play without the VPN afterwards.

    Here you go mate. I remember that game wasn't optimized for the latest OSes.

    What. Not trying be ridiculous, but I know the Steam version had the same issues if you had Windows 7+. I think we all should know by now, how badly unpotimized BGS games have been, are and most likely, will ever be.
