Is Fallout 4 getting a free pass from both the gaming public and the gaming press? If Ubisoft are thrown under the bus for technical problems, why aren't Bethesda?
Yes, yes it is, any other game would get crucified for even a fraction of the bugs a Bethesda game has :/
136 hours in, I've only encountered two bugs, which weren't even game breaking. Although I'm playing the PC version, I'm guessing all the issues that are persistent is because of the consoles weak hardware. My advice to Bethesda would have been to delay the console's versions of Fallout 4, release them later down the line, like From Software does with the PC version of Dark Souls.
100ish hours in on PS4 with the same number of bugs so not the hardware.
36 hours on PC. One bug. ONE. i smacked a death claw into the sky with a tire iron at the beginging of the game in vats, and he died from fall damage. THATS IT. I hate it when people say its getting a free pass when its not a regular occuring thing. Its not. Its rare. Just cause a bunch of people are finding 1 or 2 non game breaking bugs they think the game should be burned at the stake. Its dumb.
I haven't actually played the PC version, but what you say makes sense in theory. Kind of like the opposite of Arkham Knight.
Exactly, I think Rocksteady's mistake was releasing the PC version at the same time, knowing it was broken. Nobody likes delay, but getting it broken? Nah, I'd prefer a delay.
seems to be, especially graphically where it isnt on par with current gen titles.
Yeah, bugs aside, it's also a bit of a visual stinker. Art direction is amazing but that engine is simply too old.
I haven't encountered many bugs 100 hours in, it's certainly better in that front. However it is kinda a bummer they using an outdated engine, with the visuals and all the loading screens when you enter buildings and whatnot.
No, not for me anyways, it's been money well spent in my book. I've spent A LOT of money on games in the 34 years I've been around and I'm not regretting anything about this purchase at all. Everybody wants to talk shit on it for stupid reasons, but the sheer amount of fun and random things to do in this are ridiculous. If I didn't already get the digital version then I'd double dip and get it again just so that I don't have to worry about if something happens to my copy of it.
Mine has crashed 2 times now, But in about 80 hours, I can't complain about that.
It has crashed 4 times for me. Typically when I try to fast travel, it will make a weird noise over and over and kick me to the title scree. Outside of those minor issues, it has worked really well. I think for how ambitious and vast this game is, people are insane to think this will be a flawless experience. I swear man, the amount of crying makes you think the game is unplayable lol.
I appreciate that it hasn't crashed on everyone, but it does appear to have its problems....and more than most.
