Don takes a look at the numerous issues that are specific to the PC version of Fallout 4, and why he thinks that means Fallout 4 isn't in an acceptable state on PC.
Bethesda games are usually released in unacceptable states on all platforms, it's a shame that it hasn't affected their sales.
I don't know if I'd say its unaccetable but for the amount of time they said they were "polishing" it, it is still rough in a few places. The sad thing is if you go with a melee or VATS build you might as well play with a controller cause the interface works better...
Compared with Fallout 3,this game is polished more than Patrick Stewart's head!
Probably I'm just lucky, but I haven't any problems on PC (even with some mods installed) and the game so far is pretty amazing. Back to play this game.
@Aeery What Mods do you use? I haven't had any issues either and I'm loving it atm. Im only 30 hours in and still havent made it to Diamond City... too much stuff to do lol
I'm playing on pc at ultra no issues at all.
So I'm somehow ended up with the best version I guess. Only two bugs have been present on my now 80 hour playtime. One of them is a know real issue, the Kidnapping at Greentop nursery. Which is real easy to bypass on PC.
He barely touched on the bugs. It was mainly how the game and its engine are a technical failure. Some people, like me, care more about that than others. 4k, 144hz, fov slider, sli-xfire, key rebinding, etc. Lots of issues.
Don't play on pc. Solved.
... pc still > ps4 > xbone. Let's get real.
Ouya > all Let's get real.
PC>PS4=X1 Tests have shown that both consoles run the game more or less identically, with both versions having frame rate drops at different places. With my R9 390 I get frame rate drops down to the mid 40s in areas with lots of buildings. Let's get real.
Very well thoughtout article. Thanks. I already passed on day 1 for obvious reasons, but this seems like it'll be a late 2016 purchase for me. I did't see it in the article, but xfire and sli is currently broken too ... very poor sgowing indeed.
I'm roughly 12 hours into the game and haven't experienced any problems yet besides a texture glitch. All I had to do was reload the game and everything was solved. Compared to most multi-plat PC launches this game seems to actually be in relatively good shape.
The only problem I've had are spinning boxes and twitching dead people and its actually quite funny.
You had the spinning boxes too! I watched one tumble around a basement end over end for a while the other night.
Lol! As long as its not game breaking I welcome those kind of glitches! Now I think I'm going to go watch some Fallout 4 glitch videos on Youtube. :)
60 hours in on my 4k display and have had one but that was fixed with TCL command I think people are just hating on this game because their crap pc cannot play .I play 4k and 144 hrtz is just not possible at the moment They don't even make a 144 make 4k monitor
Specs? FPS? I want 4k ultra 60 fps. 980 ti sli setup. I've heard sli is still more or less broken. Is that not the case or are you comfortable at 4k 30 fps?
when was the last time you had fun with a game?!
I enjoy all the games I play. Granted, I have been known to spend 2-3 hours messing around with settings and tweaks to get games to run the way I like. I gave up on a couple ... Only games that ran "flawlessly" out of the box have been: 1. South Park Stick of Truth A. Capped at 30 fps, I dealt with it as it didn't need 60 fps. B. No key rebinding, I used a ps4 controller. 2. Dark Souls 2 3. Civilization: Beyond Earth Point is, perfect games are rare. If I bought this game today, it sounds like it'd take a weekend to get running right. Also, I hear this is more of a twitch shooter than 3 or NV. If that's the case 60 FPS is even more important.
There are lots of problems in this game even the technical ones. The thing is, the large majority of the fanbase of Bethesda's games are not that much into technical parts nor do they know how to measure quality.
You must not have much to do as you are always on fallout 4 articles hating on it. We get it, you dont like the game.
I don't hate nor do I dislike the game. You must not have much to do as you are replying to my comments on Failout 4 articles.
'I don't hate nor do I dislike the game'. Then. 'Failout 4 articles' Tone it down.
If all the PC gamers buy a lot more copies of 1 single game than X1 + PS4 sales combined for the same game then I'm sure developers will love to put in a few extra months worth of work. If not then they can't expect developers to waste money on features that only a small percentage of PC gamers even cares about...
I would love to have that bank account number that Sony and MS use so they can share all that money from multiplat games. Rumor has it Nintendos name is also on the account.
Been playing for days now non stop. Not a single crash or issue with this game. These controversial silly articles should stop. I want real news.
Yep, nearly 60 hours in and not a single crash, the only notable bug I've encountered is that Preston wouldn't talk to me after dismissing him after taking the Castle. I was able to fix it myself using console commands.
This article is unacceptable.
I don't have time to read all of that. But I can speak for my experience with playing it on PC. I am not a computer wiz. But with the same computer I had a better experience with the Witcher 3. I was able to pump out better graphics with my computer and had less framerate issues. I feel like Fallout 4 could be better optimized.
