GB: Bugs are a plenty in Fallout: New Vegas but Bethesda’s already bringing out their bug-patch sprays! The first patch for the PC version of the game has gone live and can be is automatically downloaded once you boot up the game.
the first in the long line of patches that Bethesda's gonna churn out. I am only 10 hours in and have already encountered some rather funny ones.
That's why it's stupid to buy a game like this day one. Wait a year and buy the GotY or complete edition with all the DLC, all the patches, and a lower price. There are lots of great games that have either just come out or are coming out for the holiday season that will not be a bug riddled train wreck.
Glad I am playing the console version!
So you can get a delayed patch? This same patch is coming to consoles eventually...it actually only fixes quests/scripts, but since the PC version is using Steam it's much easier/quicker to update a game.
easier? the update system of console games is just like the one of steam do you think console gamers have to update games manually?
Last I checked, patches had to be approved by Microsoft before released. They will probably release the PS3 version at the same time as 360. And technically you have to manually update your games on consoles, pressing a button to confirm the download then install it, with Steam everything is updated automatically, 30 games could be updating at once and I wouldn't even know it, streamlined service. So no, it's not the same as Steam.
well playstation plus offers the background patching service you mentioned but it isn't free(which should be imo)
You are glad the same bugs remain unfixed on your platform and you have to play the game in low resolution, with choppy framerate, ugly textures, no AA and no mods?. Interesting...
That was a fail comment.
I don't know about these retards, but I'm more for actually playing the game rather than wishing I had the PC to play it. I don't care about textures, mods, or low resolution. My TV is SD anyway. The framerate is barely noticeable for me. I'm noticing the mini-freezes it gets about once a minute. It only lasts about a second, so it isn't a big complaint.
So, we're retards for wanting a better gaming experience? Get out.
I think you've mistaken 'buggy' with 'resource-hungry'. I'll fill you in on a little secret DTG... all versions are buggy as heck. Except, now with this patch, PC gamers do get to play it with less bugs and at a higher res. ;)
On PC if the devs don't fix a problem, there is always a good chance that you can fix it yourself in advance. What is not to like. PC users don't even have to try, some kindly chap will post the tweak fix for said problem, everyone else simply copies and pastes the command etc and bam, game fixed. Console users STILL have broken versions of the GOTY version of FO3, a fix that is never going to come. FO3 on PC is buggy too, but with a few tweaks I haven't had a crash in over 40hrs of my last playthrough.
That is exactly why I got the the PC version.
I got stuck holding TNT in m'y Hand , i could only Walk and enemys would not attack me ,funny :)
Well, you were holding TNT in your hand so what do you expect? lol
I had one problem with game floating enemy that just fell to the floor when shot him alot less buggyer than fallout 3 K/M did not even work for more than 5 mins.
the only problem i have is every time i want to do a quick 180 the game freezes for a slight second. it only happens when i set the graphics to ultra but i still get like 40-50 fps in ultra, i dont get it.
found out what it was. when the 'reflection detail' is set to high it happens
The patch didn't fix the white spots i keep getting, I know it's an AA or HDR issue that might be related to nvidia drivers but I refuse to turn either off, without AA and HDR the game looks mediocre. I still also getting huge FR fluctuations
