Bethesda Faces Backlash Following Fallout 76 Bag Apology

Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition controversy

There’s already enough controversy surrounding Fallout 76, but now there’s even more for fans to be angry about. This has to do with the game’s Power Armor Edition, which was originally advertised as including a Canvas West Tek Duffel Bag. However, customers did not get what they paid for and instead got a bag made out of a cheap-quality nylon.

Bethesda changed the Power Armor Edition’s description to reflect this change in material, but this was after many had already pre-ordered it. This has rightfully caused an uproar, and now the company is doing what they can to minimize the damage. They posted an apology, but it was not well-received. They posted the following on Reddit (via DualShockers):

“The Bethesda Store’s Support member is a temporary contract employee and not directly employed by Bethesda or Betehsda Game Studios. We apoligize to the customer who took the time to reach out. The support response was incorrect and not in accordance with our conduct policy. Unfortunately, due to unavailability of materials, we had to switch to a nylon carrying case in the Fallout 76: Power Armor Edition. We hop this doesn’t prevent anyone from enjoying what we feel is one of our best collector’s editions.”

They have since edited the post to add that they are going to provide 500 Atoms to Power Armor Edition purchasers, as that apology post really only aggravated fans even more. 500 atoms likely won’t do much to change anything, as that only comes out to $5 worth of in-game currency.

Fallout 76 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The company recently posted an update revealing that millions of players are playing the game, despite the countless issues that the game has.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.
