A team of 300 testers couldn't make NV bug-free for launch, says designer
Putting blindfolds on your game testers is not recommended... Seriously how could they not have seen them, seeing through walls in some parts of Vault 22 is a prime example. I love the game though, it's fun. bugs will be dealt with accordingly I suppose
I don't mind little bugs and glitches here and there. Those are to be expected in any big, open-world game. What I do mind is when my console freezes up for no apparent reason. No excuse for that.
Little bugs are a problem just those nice juicy game breaking ones do
Never froze on me yet, but twice it just quit and the XMB came up, weird.
I've had about 4 freezes in 10 hours now, and at least 2 questbreaking glitches where either the NPCs got stuck or a triggered event failed to happen.
the Come Fly with me mission just...doesn't load the end scene =( I see no rockets, I think the script got badly installed or what...sucked =(
If they had more time.
How about the fact the bugs are the same ones from fallout 3?? They only need to look at the hundreds of complaints on bethesdas own forums to find out what bugs there are!
Then it should have gotten delayed. See? This is what happens when you rush your game to market.
To be fair it's a pretty massive game. Nahhhhhhh n/m, no excuses for some of the bugs!
But by what I can see, looks pretty buggy. Will be getting it after exams, but am a little bit worried that it will bug me with all the bugs. Funnily enough, I barely ever had any issues with fallout 3 so maybe I will be ok. But you are right it is a massive world, but as many bugs as it seems is a bit much.
Use a different engine, we all know we are not going to get any real fixes just like FO3. I'd prefer UnrealEngine to this crap, either that or steal the engine for RAGE.
....Sees elder scrolls 5 with the rage engine.... DROOLS.....
Bethesda is the only publisher allowed to use id's RAGE engine
Bethesda publishes Fallout...
The shear size of fallout 3 and new Vegas that loads onto the ram of the ps3 and 360 is mind boggling. I agree fully with the fact they are buggy and glitchy. That however does not take away with the fact they are great games. I don't believe that everyone that comments on the Fallout games have even played them. The larger the world the more glitches it will have. It is fact.I hate it, you hate , the developers hate it. It is technology and the way it works and where the developers are at this point in time.
I agree on some level but the fallout games crash on my PC and its decently specced with a 9800GT and 4GB RAM.
It's not the pc either. It's the game engines limited ability. Not because of the developers, but because the engine was built in the time in of what where new advances in video game technology where taken place. It takes a lot of man hours to scour a game of that size. It's where we are at this point in time. The developers will get better in time. The video game technology is advancing very rapidly. I love it.
You sir deserves a cookie
Well said. I hate how all everyone does is complain complain complain. Fallout Gameplay is awesome. The story is awesome. The sheer size is awesome. Yes, bugs and glitches are annoying. Move on. Every game has them.
The game is dope, I think you guys on the forumz just like to bitch about every little thing possible.
This is just another excuse that would not be considered valid for other games. It works only for Fallout games.
With a game this open, and fun. Who gives a flying fuck? Also, PC version is ok. I've yet to find any glitches.
Is that a joke? Surely, it's a joke
ummmm, no bugs here
I swear so many people are blowing his out of proportion. my 360 version runs great, whats up with your pc being so uber powerfull. if the engine runs well on 360 it should on pc too
happy to wait, still tryin to finish 3
I can excuse graphical glitches and stuttering at times. Broken quests and corrupted saves are another thing altogether. I've run into one broken quest already and it pisses me off.
