Bethesda.net issues

Recommended Posts

That's amazing. Gotta love the entire situation with F76. Remember when Bethesda killed Prey 2 because of "quality" reasons? Yeah, I'm sure it was because of the quality.

I plan to try out Fallout 76 soon (yeah, yeah, fight me), but I can't deny that Bethesda is in a huge heap of trouble at the moment. The good news is that they're making a huge update to the game in December.

FO76 looked like trash when it was announced - most likely because you also had Rage 2 and DE gameplay revealed already.  It just looks like another Oblivion game with the shitty combat that hasn't changed since like forever.

I do not blame Bethesda for wanting their own launcher.  It just needs to fucking work!  Kinda worried that IF Bethesda.net is the only source for Doom Eternal, then it is going to run like shit.

I saw this coming when Valve announced HL2 being Steam only (even if installed from disc). Of course every publisher wants his own platform, because that's what publishers do: publish.

sounds like a pickle. the product is digital, distribution is digital.

 

im sure that there are still digital logistical issues for studios, but publishers should be going out of business. time to get a real job.

Now that's a huge surprise. A company that does not fix serious bugs in their games has a serious bug in their support system. It's their usual high level of quality.

I'd like to see how successful the company would have been without modding, especially all the unofficial bug fix mods.

It's shocking how one of my favorite video game companies fucked up that bad.

 

There is some serious chaos happening at Bethesda headquarters. It's not funny for me, it's just sad and scary.

It seems to happen to all big companies eventually.

 

I used to like Bethesda for their games too, as well as Valve, and look what they've become.

Whelp, it looks like RAGE 2 is going to a Bethesda.net game. If you go to the store page on that site (https://bethesda.net/en/games/RA2CS1PCBG01BASE), it doesn't say "Steam DRM" in brackets next to "PC Download" above the "add to cart" button like some other games in this store do. Also, if you go to the GreenManGaming page for it (https://www.greenmangaming.com/games/rage-2-pc/), it lists "Bethesda" as the game's DRM, which is also notable because this page previously said that it was going to use Steam.

 

I'm saying this because this means that DOOM Eternal is probably much more likely to be chained to that awful service. God-fucking-dammit Bethesda, why did you have to put all your eggs into one basket? I had a feeling that Pete's reasoning for Fallout 76 being on Beth.net was bullshit.

I hope they'll still sell their games on Steam, though, like Ubisoft does. There's no way I'm gonna buy anything that's on Beth.net exclusively.

Let's hope and pray.

 

Come on Bethesda, you had a rough year. Please don't make it even worse for 2019.

What boggles my mind the most is that Zenimax/Bethesda/Whoever the fuck made this decision thought it was a good idea to put RAGE 2, a sequel to a game that isn't all that fondly remembered, on a platform with not only a very harsh stigma, but also one that just hasn't found much of an audience yet. At least if they put DOOM Eternal on there, It kinda makes sense because it's extremely hyped up and I bet a lot of people excited for that game would be willing to bite the bullet and deal with Beth.net's shit (as much as I'd hate to see that happen). Putting a game like RAGE 2 on there is just setting themselves up for it to be a flop on PC.

 

A damn shame too because I've really been looking forward to RAGE 2. Hopefully Bethesda takes the constant shitstorm they've been receiving over the past month as a hint that maybe they should be changing course. It shouldn't be too hard to put that game on Steam since it has no multiplayer whatsoever and they already have previously Beth.net-only games on there like ES Legends and Quake Champions.

Yeah maybe that's the case. That GMG link is the only third-party seller page I can find that hasn't either not been updated or haven't been put up at all. Not even the Humble Store, which sells Fallout 76, has the page for RAGE 2 up yet. Still, I'm really worried.

If Doom Eternal ends up having anything to do with Bethesda.net or their launcher, there's no way in hell I'm gonna buy it. One thing is a shitty launcher, but leaking private information is a whole other level. I'm sorry for id, but I'm not gonna deal with Bethesda's massive incompetence.

Sometimes it's good to live in the EU. An Eula like this will not be valid here.

I would actually give 76 a shot if on steam. God I hope they don't start making the id side of things bethesda launcher exclusive.

Seems more like Bethesda games being Bethesda games.

I like using "Bethesda" as a verb.

 

"Oh no, I think the game just bethesda'd there for a minute."

"Look the character models are bethesdaing all over the place again."
