Posted by IGN on January 15, 2018 01:36:48You’ve seen how the internet hates you.
You know how much it hates you when you don’t get a response.
Now you’re going to be a victim of its wrath again, this time because your favorite online video game, Fallout: New Vegas, is going to come out on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this December.
It’s a game about a war between the Commonwealth and the Reapers, the world’s two largest superpowers.
If you don.t love it, the internet will have no choice but to turn on you.
But don’t let the word “fear” or “hate” get in the way of that.
The Internet is so, so, sad about Fallout, and I can’t stress that enough.
It started with a tweet from a guy named Andrew Bynum, a video game critic for Kotaku.
Bynums tweet read, “You have no idea how many people hated Fallout on Twitter before I did.”
It was retweeted more than 1,400 times.
Bys tweet got so much attention that Fallout became the subject of a viral video.
It was then, when Byns tweet was shared more than 3,000 times, that it went viral on social media.
Fallout became an internet phenomenon, the subject even of a documentary, but even before that, the backlash was mounting.
Fallout was being compared to the Hunger Games and it was being called a rip-off of a book about a fictional war between two superpowers, or, worse, a copy of a video-game that the internet was so mad about that it was sharing a meme of it in the hopes of making a profit off it.
Bynum wasn’t the only one with a point to make.
Some people, like a Redditor named krzysztof, have pointed out that Fallout is based on a book called The Last War, a collection of essays written by James S.A. Corey, a former reporter for The New York Times who was once the head of The Intercept.
A few days later, a number of websites, including The Escapist, Kotaku, and GameSpot, published articles about the book, which is a book that many of them consider a ripoff.
The only problem?
That’s not true.
The book was actually based on James S A. Corey’s own personal essay, titled, Fallout and the Last War.
Corey wrote that the book was based on his experiences as a reporter for the Times and The Intercept in 2008, when the former was still owned by Condé Nast and the latter by HarperCollins.
As a reporter, Corey wrote that he was regularly confronted by journalists who had trouble reporting on newsworthy topics like the economic crisis, the 2008 election, and the US government’s response to the earthquake in Haiti.
He also wrote that some journalists, like me, were more interested in what the government was doing than what they were reporting.
“In other words,” Corey wrote, “I was just as prone to reporting on what the media wanted me to report as I was to reporting what I thought the public wanted me report.”
But the internet did not agree with Corey’s characterization of the Times.
The internet hated Corey’s work, and for good reason.
The last war was based around the idea that The Great War is coming.
Coreys essay, and Fallout, became a hot topic on Reddit, where people debated the merits of Corey’s book and its portrayal of The Great Reapers.
One thread, titled “Corey is wrong,” has more than 15,000 views.
“If you want to see this kind of vitriol and hate, go read James S, Corey’s essay in The Last Battle,” one Redditor wrote.
Others said they had no problem with Corey being wrong about the Great War, but that he should have considered the opinions of the people he wrote about in the book.
“I’m not saying he should write this book or even write it as a fictional story, but at least be aware of what he is writing and what he isn’t,” one commenter wrote.
“And he needs to take note of the opinion of the actual people who are actually doing the fighting and what they believe is really important to the war.”
Many fans were outraged by the criticism of Fallout, but the internet quickly turned its attention to Fallout: Rebuild.
A video game series set in the Commonwealth by a group of developers called Fallout: Rivets is a game set in a world where the Great Reaper is dead.
Fallout: Reborn is set in New Vegas and takes place just after the game.
This was the first time that the Fallout series had been rebooted after a major character had died, and it is the first to take place in the world of New Vegas.
The trailer for the game shows off a lot of the gameplay mechanics from Fallout: Rebirth, but its not until the game
