Bethesda: 'We recommend not installing Doom 3 BFG'

NowGamer: Bethesda has responded to the unusual quirk of not being able to play original Doom after installing Doom 3 BFG to your Xbox 360 hard drive… by advising against installing it. (Bethesda Softworks, DOOM 3 BFG, Xbox 360)

Lol, someone missed something pretty obvious during QA. What a joke.

Lol these guy's are losing it, glitchy games, Ps3 Negligence, and now "Don't install BFG edition of Doom" on hard drive. Lol stop the bleeding...

They didn't miss it. When you try to play it they actually programmed it to say that you have to delete it from your hard drive. But that's even lazier since they obviously knew about it beforehand.

So their recommendation is to 'not install'. Wow.

Some people are still waiting for them to patch Skyrim on PC to solve missing NPCs or follower issues. PS3 users are still waiting for the DLCs. Meanwhile Doom 3 BFG is capped at 60 FPS, looks like crap and comes with censored versions of Doom. All of their so called "improvements" are aimed for console optimization and by optimization I mean corpses disappearing faster. Meanwhile Xbox version of Doom 3 can be played without worrying about such thing. They really are a great developer and I'm sure IGN and Gamespot and many other sites will choose Skyrim as their GOTY this year again. Cause why not? It's the best game ever...

This is how much they care about this game.

Bethseda was the only thing making me not want the collection, luckily I'm a bigger Doom fan than I am a Bethseda hater.

Or maybe I could just quit the game and load DOOM as an arcade game?

Also wouldn't it have been easier to offer DOOM 1 & 2 as redeem codes instead?

bethesda is the most irresponsible developer/publisher this gen.
FarCryLover182  +   767d ago
I was always under the impression that only Bethesda developed games had a lot of bugs. I guess Id caught the bug-disease.
CanadianTurtle  +   767d ago
Yea, this will have to wait until it's in the bargain bin at 20 bucks for me. Thanks for the heads up Bethesda, because I can't afford to pay 60 bucks for a game that isn't fully "ready" and "polished."

And so it begins, first Bethesda neglects their PS3 games, nwo they're neglecting the 360 ones. smh.

What stupidity i just pick up the pirate version and im already running all three games from the hdd with a minor fix!They dont want to pay for a patch to MS and came out with this stupid option to those that payed the retail version!Not to mention that installing the games prolongs the life of your xbox dvd lens.
