Fallout 76 is receiving more than its share of negative press. Bethesda took a beloved franchise and dramatically changed its foundation. Any move like this is expected to generate a decent amount of controversy, however, Fallout 76 is also undeniably sub-par.
Fallout 76 - Crash Right Before NUKE [Clipped Stream]
The Gigamax Games crew are fans of the game as a whole. They’ve spent hours and hours exploring the larger-than-life in-game world, and when it works, it's incredible. Both Gigs and Mack constantly find themselves pointing out every aspect that makes them love it. Yet, sadly, it is deeply flawed. The clip above is from a recent Gigamax PowerHour stream. After an hour-long run to launch a Nuke, the game crashes.

Even with all its issues, Gigs and Mack are hopeful that Bethesda will continue to support and improve Fallout 76. Right now, the game might not be what gamers expected, but there’s still a chance. Games like No Man’s Sky prove that a games initial release doesn’t always determine how a title will ultimately turn out.
Gigamax Games will be keeping a close eye on the evolution of Fallout 76. It will be interesting to see how Bethesda bounces back from the embarrassing release. This developer/publisher has an impressive reputation to protect. There’s no telling to what lengths they will go to ensure Fallout 76 turns out the way they intended.

Fallout 76 Impressions and Gameplay
Fallout 76 will be receiving a variety of balance changes such as increasing the number of loot drops from boss type enemies and automatic weapon damage is being boosted by 20% to help players feel more powerful while traversing the wasteland.
There are also plenty of bug fixes in the massive update. One fixes an issue where an infinite loading screen would occur if a player got signed out of their console while playing. On Xbox One specifically, the patch repairs an issue that would crash the game upon accepting team invites. Bethesda has also added some UI, survival, and perk changes. For a look at all the changes being implemented to Fallout 76, you can find the full patch notes from Bethesda's website.
Fallout 76 is being ripped to shreds by reviewers. Gamers and critics are finding it hard to accept the direction Bethesda took while creating this multiplayer Fallout game. However, there is still entertaining content hidden beneath the layers of incomplete ideas and copious bugs.
The Gigamax Games is here to offer a complete look at Fallout 76. From the buggy gameplay to the moments of exquisite adventure, this post-apocalyptic multiplayer RPG does have a few redeeming qualities.
With such a massive game, it takes some time to truly uncover all the secrets and environments available. Power-suits aren’t even accessible until level 25. Development isn’t over for this game and that means the future could bring with it fixes and improvements. This means there is plenty of exploring to be done before Fallout 76 is categorized as a failure. Bethesda went out of their comfort zone to deliver gamers the multiplayer RPG fans have wanted for so long.
Even More Fallout 76!
Wandering the wasteland with friends is addicting. This means more Fallout 76 gameplay is on its way. If you want to see something specific in Fallout 76, be sure to leave a request in the comments below! Have a different game request in mind? Let the crew know and they’ll add it to the list!

Fallout 76 Beta Gameplay, Reviews, and Impressions [Twitch Stream]
Many long-time Fallout fans were crushed when they heard the news about Fallout 76. People wondered how this epic RPG would retain the elements that made them love the game after it was turned into an online multiplayer RPG. But Bethesda was clever. They truly made an environment where even gamers that want to play solo can enjoy themselves and those that want to embrace the multiplayer aspect can also do so. PVP isn’t toxic and the game itself is essentially just another Fallout game, just online.
Based in West Virginia, Fallout 76 brings new environments, locations, and mechanics that all help it stand out. It truly has its own unique identity and the modifications they had to make to allow the game to work as a multiplayer game didn't take away that special something that makes Fallout, Fallout.
The goal of this beta is to push their servers to the absolute limit and find any weak links before the game officially launches. It seems as though Bethesda is doing something right, after an hour of playing the Fallout 76 beta, the Gigamax Games crew only experienced one disconnect.
