Apparently, Bethesda is being investigated for releasing an unplayable game and inconsistent refund policies. Here's an informative video about it by a YouTube video game dude:

Praise Jesus, especially when it's sunny outside because Jesus would totally be cool with you praising while you get a nice tan.

Bethesda, already standing neck-deep in the hole, has elected to grab a shovel and keep on digging.

Fallout 76's "Power Armor Edition" promised to ship with, among other things, a military-style canvas bag themed with the game. When the special editions actually sold, however, buyers found a cheap, shitty nylon sack I honestly thought was a trash bag at first glance. The promised canvas bag, supposedly a "prototype that was too expensive to make", is still being advertised on sites like Amazon. Bethesda's initial response to the complaints is included in the tweet below.



After that simply sterling PR job, the wave of outrage forced Bethesda to respond in greater depth -- and their response was to give players $5 worth of microtransaction currency (for a $200 special edition) and tell them they hope it doesn't interfere with players' enjoyment of "what we think is one of our best special editions ever".

This game is a gift that keeps on giving.
