I agree, the article makes no mention of the traditional Bethesda game-breaking bugs and glitches, busted DLC and complete lack of QA.

I'll wait for the real info regarding another reskinned yearly crapshoot from the most incompetent development studio in the industry before I get excited about buying their latest turd.

Actually scratch that, I think I'll probably have my eyes on Dark Souls 2 instead!

Yeah, you're obviously one of those folks that plays Bethesda gamesbon the wrong platform.

SilentNegotiator1991d ago


I play all Bethesda games on PC, and I've noticed plenty of game breaking bugs, especially quest glitches.

SolidStoner1991d ago

Fallout.. one of my favorite games.... hope they dont screw it up... I really want fallout new vegas type gameplay, with those crazy deserts and everything, with new quests, better ending and no Skyrim type bugs...

landog1990d ago (Edited 1990d ago )

lol....people getting mad it runs awful and looks terrible on 8 year old hardware, it ain't Bethesdas fault, blame ms and sony, there should have been new consoles out in 2010 or 2011 at the latest, skyrim was expected to ship to next gen platforms...todd howard even said this in an interview, but the game was done on pc and no sign of new consoles, so the rush ported them down to ps3/360, hence it running even worse on 360/ps3 than oblivion

it was NEVER intended for 8 year old hardware!

i have played every Bethesda game since morrowind on pc, without a single game breaking bug, in flawless 1080p at 60 frames

the only things i have had happen in both skyrim and oblivion (never morrowind or fallout 3) was my avatar got stuck in a rock, but, i save every 5 min. so no big deal, reload and don't jump on that rock.

Bethesda create some of the most immerive, deep, and massive worlds around

sure, when you make something that has 6000 hours of content in it theres bound to be a bug or two, but look at the games with 5 hour single player that have bugs, and people say Bethesda games are buggy

play them on pc, they run amazing, look amazing, and at least for myself and the 20 or so people i know who play Bethesda games on pc, there is very, very little bugs

Pintheshadows1990d ago

Dear Landog,

If you are to type utter drivel please make sure it's believable, or alternatively go to a knitting website and spout your nonsense as they won't be able to call you on it. Arena, Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion and especially Skyrim as is are all bug ridden on the PC much like Fallout 3. It isn't a secret.

And I sincerly doubt you know 20 people.



SephirothX211990d ago

Oh come on now! They make massive open world games where quests can be played in so many different orders that its easy for bugs to get through testing. They don't make corridor games like Gears and Uncharted where there is zero freedom. I've played the pc version and noticed very few bugs and I've played over 300 hours at this stage. Have multiple saves and you'll be fine. Bethesda are one of the best studios in the world. Just look at the average ratings for their last three games. Maybe you've never written an application so you might not understand how difficult some bugs are to find.

Tr10wn1990d ago


I play most of the games you mention for more than 100+ hours each and never found a game breaking bug like most people which i know are playing Skyrim on PS3 said so, i played Morrowind for both XboX and PC never found a game breaking bug played Oblivion on PS3, 360 and PC and never found a game breaking bug, Fallout 3 and NV on PC and never found any game breaking bug, Skyrim on 360 and PC and once again never found a game breaking bug, all those games had bugs like every other game out there the key word is "Game Breaking Bug" i never found one, on the other hand i know Skyrim is broken on the PS3 that is why i don't believe or care for anyone who say something negative about Bethesdas in N4G.

DasTier1990d ago

@Tvensky "Skyrim type bugs". The worst glitches i've seen in a Bethesda game have been on 360 Fallout 3 (would constantly freeze at a major quest point, even restarting the game didn't help so the game was effectively broken) and New Vegas on PC which forced me to restart the game just before the battle of hoover dam. Only glitch i had with Skyrim was dragons flying backwards (was patched) and in Oblivion I fell through the floor a couple of times.

Drabent1990d ago

I think u mean Crapovision and their Lag of Duty games.

psyxon1990d ago

@jimbobwahey no. just no.

@ujean69 Bethesda didn't develop New Vegas, Obsidian did. They did release some patches for it though.

aliengmr1989d ago


So have I. In after well over a decade of playing games on PC I'm used to bugs and glitches.

But, when Bethesda or anything related to them is mentioned whose the first to start losing it? It never fails, with in a couple posts the PS3 hive-mind unleashes hellfire.

Not sayin they don't have a reason just that its a pretty predictable occurrence.

I sure hope so. The fallout world is by far my favorite world to be in. I do not want it at all to be cyberpunk.

Reverent1991d ago

I don't think you should immediately dismiss another universe just because you're more comfortable with a different one. You will miss out on so much that way. Especially since there are better post-apocalyptic world games than Fallout. The S.T.A.L.K.E.R games being a great example of that to come to mind.

grailly1991d ago

I love fallout's world and it's the main reason I'm exited for a sequel. If I wanted another universe I would play another franchise.

I'll be happy to play other cyberpunk games, cyberpunk 2077 for instance. I just want my gritty, empty, no-electricity fallout

there are more reasons to me loving the fallout world than it being post-apocalyptic. I love the humor and the lore, discovering vaults is exiting and often funny to see how the people lived.

Reverent1990d ago (Edited 1990d ago )

Don't get me wrong, I completely agree with you. I just don't think you should limit yourself to "just" Fallout lol. I too love Fallout but there are still games that do that "gritty, empty, no-electricity" concept better. Honestly, Fallout has never given me that impression. Fallout is full of colorful characters with great personality, and this makes the games feel far from lonely. For me, I don't feel much like I'm being forced to survive and scavenge when playing Fallout games (Like I did in the stalker games). Again, don't get me wrong, because I don't consider this a bad thing at all. I have a ton of fun with Fallout; I just think there could be a slightly better emphasis on the "post-apocalyptic" part of the game.

grailly1990d ago

I don't think you get what I'm saying. I like fallout how it is. It strikes the right balance for ME. I don't care if STALKER has post-apocalyptic better, it doesn't have the humor. I don't care if I don't need to scavenge, it's not what I want.

I love the music playing, while you do the most horrible and funny choices.Cyberpunk would take that away as it's a retro-future from the 80s, you would get 80 music, I I just like that 50s music.

Anyway, I'm not sure about these rumors, it can't be a direct sequel and a direct sequel at the same time.

I don't limit myself to fallout, but when it comes to fallout it's the fallout experience that I want!

Yeah everyone listen to claud3 he is an industry insider with realtime information updates on the inner circle of Bethesda games. Whatever he says is the truth.

elhebbo161991d ago (Edited 1991d ago )

well its a rumor. for all we know they could do any city in the east coast, or west for that matter.

edit: didn't read about bethesda taking pics in boston.. now im excited.

Blacklash931991d ago

Color me excite. Loved Fallout 3. The depressing atmosphere, strangely haunting music, and bleak scenery were all incredible and what I loved the most from it.

grailly1991d ago

yep, and that's all gone if the go cyberpunk...

sonicsidewinder1991d ago

"Bethesda has no plans to reinvent the leveling up system to make it more like Skyrim."

"Bethesda is thinking about introducing a system, similar to Skyrim,"


joab7771991d ago

It makes sense and the rumors have been around concerning the institute for awhile. Anyway, I want more of a true rpg than skyrim. I hate that u can level up every skill with a particular class. But the difficulty is much better in fallout, so there's that.
