    So, basically the same rule applies as any other Tesla issue.

    Man, if only they'd increased the cyber-to-truck ratio more in favor of cyber.

    I'm convinced there's a really cool vehicle inside the Cybertruck. It's just that the design is all Musk-y...

    All this time I thought Cybertrucks were just used as props for influencers to roll into ditches, strand on the beach, and/or shoot up the doors.

    There's enough in day-to-day use for them to pose a recall worthy threat?

    Or any other major manufacturer. I recall Toyota getting slapped with a hefty fine for concealing a far worse defect not too long ago. But, you know. Current Thing.

    Apparently, there's less than 4000 of the Incel Caminos in the wild at this point.

    So I saw the news post. I've gone on the record, and will happily do it again. Fallout 76, even at launch, was far and away the best story-telling we've ever seen in the FO universe. It was a masterpiece. And while the updates and additions of NPCs have made the game a much better game, my heart still weeps for those who didn't have the opportunity to see the opening story unfold as designed when the game launched.

    I'm dead serious. If you ever find me at a PAX event, I'll happily explain why after you buy me a beer. Or a soda. A soda is probably fine.

    I've watched a few youtube videos of people driving this thing and I weep that (even with the relaxed safety regulations for "utility vehicles") that regulators signed off on this thing and made it street legal. There is near zero visibility to the front left and front right approach angles. Because they insisted on shaping this thing like a cheap scifi prop, the front window pillars completely obstruct your view. It has the worst front facing field of vision in any vehicle I have ever seen. Once Tesla can start producing these things en masse, the number of pedestrian fatalities from this monstrosity is going to be unconscionable.

    Yeah. I highly recommend anyone who enjoys Fallout games ignore all the MMO trappings, maybe even all the new content, and just play through the original FO76 main quest. It's actually some really good Fallout plot and writing and proof that Bethesda can indeed do great game story instead of just being a platform for open world wandering.

    I came to it way late, like 2 or 3 years ago, but i did really enjoy my time with it. It is a pretty good game now, and the writing is the best part by far.

    Holy shit, i had to look up that thing to see how it looks like, after reading that and woaw it looks ugly.
    It looks impractical as well, but darn, why go for that kind of design.
    Even if Musk or whoever he is paying to design these thing, is adamant that everything looks like it come from a sci-fi B-Movie, why not make it looks like something out of a sci-fi B-movie with good design ?!
