I don't have much of a horse in this race as I've only lightly played a couple other Fallout games, but it is the always online/no NPCs that does it in for me. No longer do I have real quests if there is nobody to give them.

I'm thinking the same way. I loved FO4 but 76 isn't doing it for me. I cancelled my preorder.

I don't play PvP games and the more I see about 76 is seems less like there is any decent single player action.

Sadly, my wife already digitally preordered this game for us, excited with the prospect of exploring the Wastes together. When I heard no NPCs, I instantly lost all interest. Give me another TES, a proper Fallout, Starfield, something. I too lost my taste for PvP a ways back.

I can see why PvP isn't a very acceptable option when it comes to a single player franchise like Fallout, yes it is an MMO and you don't know what people will do, I was a bit bummed to see that there was not going to be any human NPCs, yet they can solve that problem simply if they wanted to, Very respectable opinions in my book.

I'm still deciding whether to get the standard or the other edition.

What's to decide? I got the basic bitch version because I don't really care for physical items like the stupid plastic pip boy or this dumb PA helmet. And the Tricentenial edition only has cosmetic paint jobs, an emote and an outfit that thousands of other people will all be wearing too. Is that worth an extra $20 to you? Was an easy hard pass on that for me and I'm usually the first idiot pre ordering the most expensive edition for the cosmetics. But these sound incredibly underwhelming.

I'm getting the $80 edition of FO76 as a gift for doing 100% for a friend for State of Decay 1 and 2.
I'm having high hopes for the game but I do agree, it's expensive just for some cosmetics and starting gear. Pricey? Yes, but there will be free content along with the way with cosmetic microtransactions.
