It's getting to that time of year when it's worth checking back in with things. I'm facing a fairly quiet weekend, so it's a good opportunity to patch some games and see what's changed.

Late last week Bethesda announced a new item would be coming to the game soon: repair kits. Rather than waste resources repairing weapons and armour, players will be able to use these kits instead. There’s a hitch. Players will only be able to buy them through Fallout 76’s microtransaction store.

Recently it was discovered that Anthem was causing some PS4s to crash and possibly even stop working until fixed. Red Dead Online’s latest and biggest update ruined the game for many players and didn’t add enough content. Fallout 76 seems to always be in a constant state of barely working.

Over the weekend, a group of Fallout 76 players encountered a glitch that transported them inside the otherwise inaccessible Vault 63, one of the three locked vaults scattered throughout the game’s world.

They didn’t find much inside, but took pictures anyway before reaching out to Bethesda Support to explain what happened, for fear the game’s continued glitchiness might get them banned. The good news is that Bethesda says they won’t be.

As a post-apocalyptic online survival sim, Fallout 76 allows players to team up, trade with one another, or try to kill each other. This freedom is part of the game’s appeal, but when it’s coupled with exploits that allow some players to become ultra powerful, the result can be a game world that feels inhospitable and unfair. Recently, some players have been using exploits to get high level weapons illicitly, while other players have tried to stop them.
