Heavens. Why do devs think its ok to add updates a week after a game's release? Why not do it right the first tine round?
jriquelme_paraguay  +   1352d ago
do you think they release a buggy game on purpouse?
MidnytRain  +   1352d ago
In a way, yes. They may not have wanted the game to turn out buggy, but they probably knew the game was broken when it launched. I already disapprove of release day patches, so patching things up a week after is just frustrating, I think.

Deep silver is a small Dev.
This game is huge...
we need to support Devs like this, Dead Island its not BROKEN.

They cant test everything.
We need to be Patients, and Thank they do something with the Feedback.

^^The publishers should've gave them more time if it wasn't ready.
MysticStrummer  +   1352d ago
@paraguay - The PS3 version is most definitely broken. I started running into bugs very quickly, so while they can't test everything I'd say there are many things wrong with this game that they should have been aware of, and probably were. I'd be done with the game by now if the autosave wasn't a liar. I've had to do big sections of the game two, three, even four times before the game acknowledges that I completed them. Not broken... riiight.

@jriquelme_paraguay Deep Silver is not the dev its the publishing company Techland is the developer known for their buggy mess of CoJ games..

You need to patch your comment to fix the word "time".

Seems to be the normal thing this gen.....release game....patch it later
SwiderMan  +   1351d ago
Right, why pay for testing when you can outsource?

"PC patch coming soon?"

The PC version is already at 1.2.0 - I had assumed that was a patch or two ahead of the consoles because there's no lengthy certification process to go through?
Not that that aren't some bugs left to fix in another patch or several :).
Brawler  +   1352d ago
i thought that too i was like well all they do is submit it to steam which puts it live on their servers but i guess there is more bugs they wont to iron out on the pc version of the game.

40 hour playthrough save corrupted. These guys are a bunch of MORONS. Worst developers EVER. I hope they lose money on this game and their studio gets shut down.
SuperBeast811  +   1352d ago
WOW way to make all of us gamers look really mature you know those guys have familys and they are just human they make mistakes they cant control when their publisher decides to ship even if they know its not ready its not their call
hadouken007  +   1351d ago
I feel what he's saying, I work for my money too,and what I pay for need to work out of the box dude,we got families too,if they made a mistake, where's the article, ...we're sorry for the the broken game, but whatever right.

How did this game score one 9/10, let alone the number it did? I'm trying to enjoy it, but damn...this is a buggy mess.

That's what I've been wondering myself. Devs that actually finish their game before release must be angry and/or confused at the high reviews and sales this mess is getting. I can only imagine how this game would have been ripped apart by reviewers if it was a PS3 exclusive.
hadouken007  +   1351d ago
They would rape it like Steven Spielberg,and George Lucas, did to Indiana Jones.
Miths  +   1352d ago
I've been playing the PC version for 13 hours and only run into minor glitches. But if the PC version is indeed a patch or two ahead of the consoles, there's probably hope for the latter as well.

Bugs aside, it's a hugely enjoyable game in my opinion, and while I would have perhaps leaned towards an 8/10 score after the first few hours, it's firmly in 9/10 territory for me now.
Feldman9000  +   1352d ago
solution to save issue? delete all game data and saves, start over. There's no point in losing ur saves if it's not saving anyways. I gave in and had no issues.
MysticStrummer  +   1352d ago
What sense does that make??? Why would you think it would save correctly if you just delete everything and start a new game??? I've had sections of the game that saved just fine, but I've also had to do large sections of the game multiple times.
Xenial  +   1352d ago
Actually, this method has worked for me and i'm on the PS3 version. don't know why, but i did it and mu game saves without me having to pray it does. Luck? idk
Feldman9000  +   1351d ago
the original patch messed everything up. delete all data and game saves tied into it. the save problem wasn't an initial problem.
ConstipatedGorilla  +   1352d ago
I just bought this game today, but I may wait to play it until the PS3 patch comes. I've got God of War to get though anyway.
ikkokucrisis  +   1352d ago
God of War on PS3 is boss!
One-X  +   1352d ago
Guys... this patch hit the PS3 and PC like... a whole week ago...
xPhearR3dx  +   1352d ago
They're talking about a different patch. It's right on their Twitter feed, go look.
One-X  +   1352d ago
Surely it's the same one because they mentioned the 5 minute delay on thrown weapons which we got a week ago? I just thought that indicated it's the one PS3 and PC already have. My bad then >.>
opinska  +   1351d ago
Worst release ever... game was broken from start, then they are patching and patching it like crazy.
I would prefer if they delay the game a month instead of giving us an alpha stage game... Also they need to patch the steam version, every time I wanna play offline it crashes...
BattleTorn  +   1351d ago
far from worst release ever... Homefronts' MP was actually unplayable (even if you got into a match, if you were lucky) for at least the first week.

(I really liked the game too)
