Pete Hines Under Fire From Fallout 4 Fans, Accused Of ‘Not Caring About The Lore’

Hines has had a few social media missteps the last couple of months.

While Fallout 4 fans have to appreciate the fact that Bethesda’s Pete Hines is approachable on Twitter, one has to wonder if the VP might start to reconsider a platform that only allows him to community 140 characters at a time. Over the last couple of months, Hines has made a number of short, seemingly terse comments that have got him in a bit of hot water. The latest is a comment that some fans of the series have taken to illustrate that Bethesda doesn’t really care about the Fallout series and the lore that surrounds it.

Hines was asked by one fan about a particular part of the story and according to about a personal log that appears in Fallout 4. According to this player the log describes the drug Jet, something that didn’t occur until the events of Fallout 2. Hines responded that the log does not show what date it was posted, alluding to the possibility the log was entered in the appropriate time frame. Hines is then asked about a quest called “kid in the fridge”  where “a ghoul kid survived 200 years in a fridge without food or water. How’d he do that?”

Hines responded that he was “not interested in discussing how realistic things are in an alternate universe post-apoc game w/ talking mutants and ghouls” That response prompted a fury of responses all claiming Hines doesn’t care about the lore of the game, while others took aim at his response having a “don’t give a crap” tone to it. Hines claimed neither of those opinions were true, that he cared very much about the game but that he simply didn’t think there should be so much attention dedicated to finding realism in a game where mutants and ghouls roamed the land. We’ve got a feeling this might dog Hines for a little while.

    Little kiddies will cry over anything. I for one would like to tell Hines, “Thanks man, I love Fallout 4!”

      U’re an idiot! Maybe u should say to that d-bag: ”Hey, can i bend over so that u can do me hard, cuz after all i’m ur pro-bono internet representative!” Really pathetic u dumb fanboys are. Just keep on sucking that BUGthesda’s d!ck u ain’t for the better!

      I’m noticing two things here, in this comment section…
      1. Somebody’s extremely late to the party. You just learning to read? Just saying kid. You use the word ‘douche’ a lot. I think I was 6 the last time I used that word. Haha. OK next…
      2. Somebody’s extremely out numbered. Notice how everyone likes Fallout 4. I’m guessing youre just mad cuz your Mommy wouldn’t let you play it. It is rated M after all. Oh I just thought of a 3rd…

      3. You definitely bumped your head (or maybe Mommy dropped you on it, or maybe it was your weak father who couldn’t hold you up) cuz you can’t even remember your name! Bahahahahaha

      Since my delicious reply to u is still waiting to be approved (prolly cuz i hit a big nerve), i’m gonna say to u that u’re gonna lose ur job at grammar police department cuz u can’t write ur own nickname properly (it’s One with the Shadows). Properly! Oops i did it again…i used properly twice, someone’s gonna cry ahahaha!

      & try to be more creative with an insults that was pretty cringey & lame from ur part.

    It must be so reassuring for old school Fallout fans to know that Bethesda don’t give a damn about the lore and consistency of the IP.

  • Brandon Gurney

    Seriously? This guy spent 5 years of his life creating this game. Let it go you brats. Games awesome.

    • Unknown

      Seriously? This douche-bag didn’t create nothing, he’s just a very lousy & arrogant pr agent that should’ve been fired a long time ago. Also Fallout franchise sucks.

  • Dernden Nermden

    Children are irrational lunatics. Why should Pete bother explaining anything to a kid? especially when the answers are in the game. The kid was probably dogpiling him to dirt anyways. You dont see Scorsese fans comparing him to dirt cause of an unrealistic action scene or something, then demanding answers on why it sucks.

      I bet u’re his mistress since u’re defending him to the moon. Get a life!

    sjw morons in this comment section…/facepalm

    • One With Shadows

      Says the sjw. I mean really…Who facepalms but the LGBTQRSTD community anyway?

    • Unknown

      Sorry to dissapoint u, (u’re the one who actually belongs to their community) but for the record, i’m walking in the light not hiding into the shadows like scared little chicken – u.

    • One With Shadows

      “Not me, but you.” That all you can come up with? Lol. At least it didn’t take you another year to think of something to retort with.

    • Unknown

      Also, i’m maybe “late to the party” but obviously u’ve never left it prolly cuz u’re stuck in some time-loop. So, i think from now on i’m just gonna leave u here to rott & u just keep continuing on being miserable.

      p.S. Pro-bono work doesn’t pay a single dime (u obviously didn’t know that) so BUGthesda and stinky Pete won’t send u even a letter of simple: “Thank you!”, for representing them ROFL…

      I know technology is leaps and bounds ahead of your ability to comprehend it but actually I haven’t been hanging out here. You see, and you’ll figure this out as you grow older, Disqus notifies people that they have messages! I know right! Unbelievable isn’t it? Also,there’s this awesome new “block” feature they added to assist in silencing little nubs like you. Yeah, by now.

    • Unknown

      Oh what’s the matter? U grew up to be unloved & rejected by ur parents??? Awww…how sad….NOT! Haha! Anyways, tnx for letting me know about block option u loser i’m going to use it right away on a wretched little being like urself.


      Go f urself!
