Trendy Gamers: Bethesda has announced that patch 1.05 is now available and we have confirmed that it is out on both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 for the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, as well, we have confirmed the PS3 patch size.
The game is still broken months after its release date....Its sad that Bethesda gets the free pass from so many reviewers.
Broken? I play it quite often. That PS2 18 wheeler trucking game was broken, Skyrim is not. Kids this gen.....
I have to agree Maria. I play the PS3 and PC versions alternatively and have a blast with both. This talk of broken is little more than attempts to sink the game, particularly on one platform.
but it was broken they are enough vids on the web to see that you couldn't play this game , as impressive as it is at 2 fps . And this patch is fixing quests that were sometimes impossible to finish because some npcs were dead .. How is that not broken again ?
It's not broken but the framerate did get on my nerves a few times. Has it been fixed yet???
@ mariahellfutura: yes, broken. what version are you playing?
@Ares84HU, the previous patch fixed up a lot of the major framerate issues on the PS3 version. (Still stutters occasionally but nowhere near as often) Not sure about the 360 version.
Morgan, seriously? You play the game on pc and ps3? Come on now.
When it came out, it had some serious issues, but I downloaded 1.05 and played for a few hours tonight and it's running pretty damn smooth. I had no noticeable frame rate or screen tearing issues on the PS3 version.
I agree that "broken" is the wrong word. I played Skyrim only on PS3 and had few problems other than once seeing a backwards flying dragon and the framerate thing, which was temporarily fixable by saving, quitting, and reloading about once an hour. I had more and worse bug problems playing Dead Island than with Skyrim. Bethesda did get many free passes from reviewers though, and them being called Developer of the Year was a joke. Skyrim was very buggy, not broken. Broken means no one can play it, not that there are bugs you may or may not see.
I think he meant that the CONSOLE version is broken. The PC version is much better, and it can only get even better with more and more mods coming out e.g. Unofficial Skyrim Patch.
You're not living in a fantasy world like Skyrim, the game is broken. Denying the issue just makes you look like a fanboy.
I'm level 54 in Skyrim on PS3, and the game is not broken. You people make it out as if your PS3 explodes when a Skyrim disc is inserted. There are some freezes here and there, but it's not THAT bad. Each successive patch reduces the amount of freezes that occur, and at the very least, this game is much much more stable than Oblivion and the two Fallout games, so they have improved.
It was broken. I got 140 hours in and it was literally unplayable. Then patch 1.4 came out and there's been very little slowdown. I'm now 210 hours in and have pretty done just about every quest(going by the uesp wiki)and it's running fine. So it's not broken but it still has some bugs that don't seem to affect much.
a little dramatic...
Ive played 150 hours on skyrim and I can tell you its not broken
i'm pretty sure you don't have a ps3 version then ...
Nope xbox version
I have the PS3 version and it's not broken either. Dead Island had far worse bug problems than Skyrim on PS3.
Yeah, I find that hard to believe. Because my friend had to deal with dragon's flying backwards on his 360 and another friend had problems with his PC copy. Not everyone has problems, I had no real problems on the PS3 until they started to update it. Things just go worst from their and then it got better after the update before this one. A broken game is Fallout New Vegas.
Fuckin horrible game. Ive put 100 hours in this game, got the platinum trophy, but I will NEVER EVER play a Crapthesda game again! These guys cant simply code shit!
You say that... Yet you spent 100 hours out of your time on earth to play it?
Aaaaand... You won't be missed.
lol,you played 100Hours and enjoyed it(obviously if you didn't enjoy it you would have stop playing it ) and then you are trolling,the game got bugs but its enjoyable and playable I put more than 200H in 3 char and I saw lot of bugs but they didnt stop me from playing this great game
Skyrim isn't broken. My game still runs at a buttery smooth 13 frames per second. So for everyone complaining about 5 frames per second, I have no idea what you're talking about. Seems fine to me. The "broken quests" aren't actually broken either, they're supposed to be like that. That is the quest itself. Adds to the lore of the game.
Sad that the PS3 still gets a free pass from developers.
Don't download this new patch on.Ps3. It has a game breaking bug in it. After you patch you can't enter water without it freezing every time.
Wow your dead right. I haven't got it on PS3 but a quick check on the internet shows this is a bug everyone is getting
i will probably go back to skyrim after i plat silent hill 2 is it possible to skip the patch?
Yeah two ways. Cut the internet connection to your PS3 off or stay connected press O when tries to update to cancel and then play the game. It won't force you to update to play it because its not an online MP game.
you are soo right F U BETHESDA IM SOO TIRED OF THIS!!!!
I have played all thee games on 360 and they for the most part play fine. The frame rate issues and screen tearing were mainly the ps3 version. This however don't give them a free pass. If they are going to release the game on ps3 they need to make sure its a least playable ane close to the 360 version. If I had the opposite experience and played these on ps3 I proly would not support them again. So I understand where a lot of people are coming from.
delete GAME DATA and UPDATE DATA for skyrim on your ps3 and repatch it, supposedly it fixes
Thanks for posting this; it works just fine now. Deleted the data, reinstalled the patch and played for over an hour in and out of water.
It crashed on me as well. This is very disappointing. We'll probably have to months for them to fix this with another patch with another problem.
the irony, i suppose, is that some of the fixes in the changelog were: - Improved visual transition when going underwater - Underwater effects now display properly
Same here. It crashed on me twice. I'm running on a launch model fat 320gb (if that helps). First time I've played in 3 months and it freezes twice...
Yep,had the same problem.I couldn't enter water without freezing.Deleted the patch and it worked fine again.
Thanks for the heads up. I was going to update but I'll wait until the next one.
You don't have to wait. Just go in and delete the game data (leave your save data alone) for Skyrim. It's listed on Bethesda's blog and it worked like a charm. I played for over an hour today in and out of water just fine. Game on!
Okay Batman AC is the next game I am going back to then.
It now freezes when you try to go under water EVERYTIME!!!!
I've haven't noticed any bugs really yet. The game play seems little bit more laggy than 1.4. I wish they add menu to turn off animation kills like in Fo:Nv. I dont like it when you have couple of guys on you and all sudden it goes into the animation kill. Plus the water freezing people have been talking about, I've yet to get it, I went way up north towards Winterhold and went way down into the water nothing happened.
I'm surprised your getting that issue, the game is supposed to be coded so that kill animations can only activate when killing the last local threat
They didn't fix the elemental fury sound bug , RAAAAAGEEE!!!
I am at 150 hours (xbox360), And have yet to see any bugs.... Save for only one backward flying dragon. I guess I am lucky. I also cary about 10 saves throughout my questing just incase. It is kind of like wearing a seat belt. You don't ever WANT to get in a car accident, but when you do you are glad you had it on.
No really. It has happened. I am actually ENJOYING the game. Still now I play mostly every day. Go ahead and disagree... But, it is true. I have not had any issues yet.
PC version all good here. for me it was never broken. Just dont buy Bethesda console games, don't know why people still do after Fallout 3 and Oblivion.
I had a great time with Oblivion and Skyrim on PS3. I thought Fallout 3 sucked, but not because of bug problems.
Yeah, I'll wait a few weeks or so. Got a bit of a backlog to go through anyway.
i play skyrim on ps3 and it works fine(so far) no water glitches for me and i was all up in the river
lol patch that creates a bigger bug. cmon how does baestheda get a pass? sure the PC version is great, maybe the console versions should have been reviewed differently. the game is broken. The massive framerate drops are unnacceptable along with noticeable screen tears... most games get his hard by this, but not skyrim.
I agree Bethesda got a bit of a pass on the PS3 version, I encourage all reviewers to change their PS3 reviews to reflect the ongoing problem developers have with that console. I have to ask, you have played Mass Effect 3 which has some crazy tech issues for a linear shooter? I am thinking you and I should start a petition about the paid for reviews for Mass Effect 3 on everything, and Skyrim on PS3. We can do this. Either way, Witcher 2 on 360 in a couple weeks, so cheer up!
I wish they would fix the jagged shadows, or include an option to disable them. Sometimes it's just amazing how ugly they are. Haven't had any framerate issues on ps3 though, guess my save wasn't big enough before the 1.4 patch.
I approve of this patch on Xbox. New underwater visuals are good and there are great critical kill animations added in and ranged attacks now have kill cam. But I wish they'd fix the issue with the Imperial/Stormcloak missions where if you beat the game without joining either side but afterwards you do join one of them, it doesn't glitch the progression of their missions. I got to level 43 and went to the Legate for the next quest and she wouldn't give it to me, had to reload an earlier save from level 16. Agggghh.
All is working good for me and im 220 hours into the game (Xbox Version) and even though yes ive seen graphical glitches in the game ive never come up against a game breaking glitch that some people seem to bang on about. I do wonder if all these people saying it shouldnt have glitches and how it should be perfect and bethesda cant code a game if they could do any better? They have no idea what a undertaking it is these days to make games especially one as big as this. If we were to wait for them to iron out every glitch in the game we would still be waiting for Skyrim to be released now. Its no where near as buggy as Daggerfall was when that was released! Anyway im enjoying it and still am!
A game that Bethesda should be proud of plagued with so many bugs. I really don't know how Todd Howard can look at himself in the mirror in the morning, knowing that the gaming press will give him and his team a pass no matter how buggy their games can get. Really makes you question the state of the gaming industry. That's all I have to say on the matter.
Game isn't broken, just very buggy. 150 hours in, PS3, PSN = TheTwelve
I wouldn't say mine is broken but it still glitches every once in a while and framerate issues are still ubundant. Oh and now I get texture pop in with 1.5. Thanks for churning out half assed products, I may think twice before buying another bethesda game.
