    I am pissed off. The thing I loved about Bethesda and the fallout series was though others look down at glitches and cheats it seemed as though you guys said ” the hell with that we’re going to let you glitch an cheat.” But the first thing you do is screw up my fun an screw up my game fixing some hoarding and duplication glitches. I had no loading issues before your update. My game never froze before the update. I had no problems crafting or getting stuck in dialogue. Whoever came up with this idea and okay ‘d it needs a slap in the head and the opposite of a raise!

    You shouldn’t be allowed to cheat if Bethesda doesnt want you to. Its their game & they dont like you ruining it.
    Exploits are not fun for most. It’s only fun for losers who like to avoid any challenge in life…cuz if u cant handle it in a game…clearly you are weak minded.

    Agreed. Sure it’s fun to have infinite mini nukes, blasting everything into space, for a little while. But there’s an experience Bethesda wants people to be a part of. Cheating takes away from that.They spent years and lots of money making this game, and you pretty much just bypass all of their hard work. If that was the case they should have just made a dialogue free open world of carnage for you losers.

    NPC Settlers can also steal your Power Armor if you leave it somewhere they can get to and have fusion core in the workbench. They will also take guns and ammo from the workbench to use if attacked. (At least this has happened to me at Red Rocket).

    Whenever I click ‘A’ (I’m on XBOX One) to talk to someone, no sound comes out until I pause the game, only then can I hear the conversations

    “Bethesda is glitched as a 3 legged goat ” – JackMcCan

    Fo4 is full of bugs and glitches, there quality controll is poor , and bethesda expects game players to fault trace there own Isues as lest on pc , but for Xbox one and ps4 they expect the game players to put up with major game play isues for over 2 months and counting.
    The day one patch only addressed one or two isues , todd howard stated that it was there best release ever blar blar blar , and pointed out how well there’s tests did, knowing there were game braking isues in there game they release it anyway doh !

    They gave the game out early before the release date , knowing that major isues were in there game, so they could get people to test there game for free ! , my opinion, and dam it might be true.

    Only a few more isues were addressed in the next patch , patch 1.3 is only a beta at current and is addressing more isues that shouldn’t have been in the original release!

    But if u re a fan boy of todd howard , and belived it just works …… I fell sorry for u !
