Fallout: New Vegas Corrupted Saves?

Fallout: New Vegas has been out for less than 24 hours and there are already many reports of bugs, crashes and corrupt files circulating around the net. GameBlurb user markymark was one of those unlucky users… (Fallout: New Vegas, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

there's an easy solution for this
as there was on FO3

DISABLE AUTO-SAVE

fixes 90% of all big errors/crashes/save data losses.
tacosRcool  +   1519d ago
this is not the first time something published by Bethesda corrupts game save data cough* cough* Oblivion and Fallout 3
jaidek  +   1519d ago
You know, shit like this is inexcusable. First we have corruption in Castlevania and now the new Fallout. Dev's need to wake up.
Solidus187-SCMilk  +   1519d ago
speak for yourself
Ive finished castlevania and have played fallout new vegas alot and havent had a corrupted save at all.
visualb  +   1519d ago
sure
but this isn't about the people who haven't, this is about the people who HAVE suffered this stuff...

Solidus
Seriously, you act like he disrespected you. I got the platinum in Castlevania without a save file problem, but less than 3 hours into New Vegas, my system froze, along with frame pauses every couple minutes. Its inexcusable to put out a product that is EXPECTED to have the same bugs over and over. What is going on in testing if I can get these bugs this early in a 100+ hour game?

no, its nothing personal
just stating that Ive played alot of both of these games and havent had a corrupted save.

Im sure there are problems for some people, but im not going to let it ruin my experience when I havent had any corrupted saves in either of the games.

Gameblurb user... so people actually use gameblurb? That's the real news here, folks.

Also "I’m in hardcore mode, saving as infrequently as possible" that's just stupid! If you're going to be dumb enough to save twice in 10 hours you deserve this.

Well...when you reuse a broken engine, it's bound to happen. Thankfully, I have yet to run into anything.
NeoMagus  +   1519d ago
Haven't had a problem yet either on the 360 version sounds like this guy was just unlucky

loss all auto and quick save on PC(Steam)
...
PrimordialSoupBase  +   1519d ago
Likewise, 4 hours gone. I can deal with bugs and glitches in game, but saves is unacceptable.
divideby0  +   1519d ago
how does a game with so many problems gets good review scores is beyond me

bottom line is reviewers and gamers have lowered their expectations that games actually work as they should when we buy them
vhero  +   1519d ago
I agree it's a total joke and devs shouldn't release buggy games. This is all thanks to all consoles now coming with ability to patch games. This kind of stuff was extremly rare on PS2/Xbox/GC generation but is now so damn common because devs just think they can patch problems later and save money rather than hiring a team to test the games for bugs and save some cash.
divideby0  +   1519d ago
^whoa... you have an excellent point... I dont recall games so buggy back in the day of the other consoles...

so with this gen., developers raised the price of games and the quality of their products went down
visualb  +   1519d ago
"so with this gen., developers raised the price of games and the quality of their products went down"

quote that will probably be most predominant when remembering this generation.
Zinc  +   1519d ago
I seem to remember glitches, exploits, and game stoppers even 15 years ago.
360nPS3rTheSAME  +   1519d ago
that's messed up
not everyone has internet. some gamer don't want or need it cause they just play sp games. knowing this I won't buy fonv because I put up with these same prpoblems in fo3, which, I traded cause of the constant crashing. is oblivion this buggy?

Its made by bethesda. All of there games are ok or bad but back then they had great games for the time and now all people do is rate their games great no matter what.
Eiffel  +   1519d ago
So one persons corrupted game save, makes it an epidemic?

Yeah corrupted game saves occur with nearly any game, it's just random.
jmmurillo86  +   1519d ago
I suppose it's the Oblivion/Fallout3 engine which is broken. They should bring a new, up to date, bug-free engine.

By the way, Fallout:NV = Fallout3

it took something like 4 years to make fallout 3
if obsidian went with a "new up to date bug free engine" we for sure wouldnt have bee able to enjoy NV for at least another 2 years.
hoops  +   1519d ago
The FO3 was a bug ridden mess. So this does not surprise me in the least
sarshelyam  +   1519d ago
Ever since my PS3 died...
...I backup my save files to a thumbdrive after every gameplay session. I'm paranoid and overprotective.
Gambit07  +   1519d ago
Yikes, I'll go back and forth between 2 save files then.
theonlylolking  +   1519d ago
Make 7 different save locations like I did
Gambit07  +   1519d ago
7?, wow, you don't Fk around.
z1ck  +   1519d ago
im playing the pc version and i have 125 saves i keep recycling between them , my save folder is using 286 MB . you can have up to 1000 saves in this game
Gambit07  +   1519d ago
125?? Insanity.

This better be a one off.
BabyTownFrolics  +   1519d ago
played for 6 hours so far
not one bug or crash yet
gamer8179  +   1519d ago
3 minutes to boot the game and load the save file? Do you know what you're tallking about? It doesn't take even a minture to do all that on the 360. Also it sounds pretty funny bragging about games being $10 cheaper on the pc, but you have to spend over a thousand dollars to get a decent gaming pc.
Eiffel  +   1519d ago
You don't need to spend that much, it takes little over $300-500 to get a decent gaming PC. Of course that's if you build it, and not get suckered by retailers.

Not to mention, if you spend $100 - $200 less on games per year, you close any price gap that does exist when purchasing hardware pretty quickly. Long-term big picture thinking people.
BakedGoods  +   1519d ago
Hell yeah. $800 got me a machine that runs everything at 1080P 30FPS.

Not to mention if you're resourceful you might not even need to purchase the game...

With all the info regarding bugs & glitches, one wonders why the game's been given such good reviews?!
Philoctetes  +   1519d ago
Because its a major multiplatform release by a well-known developer. If any PS3 exclusive was this buggy, it would be getting ripped by reviewers. If it was an IP by a small, unknown developer, it would be getting ripped. But because it has the name "Fallout" in the title and comes from Bethesda/Obsidian, it gets 8s and 9s.

This is why you can't trust professional reviews. The only reviews I trust are the ones that come from gamers after release.
blink3020  +   1518d ago
Def not buying this game until/unless they fix all these bugs... Glad I picked up MOH instead.
