Bethesda, Splash Damage Trying to Patch Laggy Brink, Free DLC Apology on the Way

A launch day patch failed to make Brink lag-free on consoles as frustrated gamers continue to stutter their way through online battles. Bethesda and Splash Damage say more updates are on the way to fix the problem, and as an apology, the publisher and developer plan to make the first DLC pack free.

should of just released it when it was ready..

i love bethesda games but does every game they put out always have to be full of bugs at launch?

cochise3132708d ago

It seems that way. I don't know why they can't release a game that's bug free.

joydestroy2708d ago

yep their games typically have mag bugs.
i've experienced no lag on the PS3 version and i've played long sessions on there on 3 separate occasions.

but hey, if they're giving the first DLC pack away free, that should be enough to compensate, right? plus the fact that they're aware and still working on it.

June and more maps/content on the way? win!
this will cause me to keep it a bit longer for sure.

They didn't make it...only published it afaik

Can we get a noobs guide to video games over here?

Anyone who calls himself a gamer should know something as elementary as the difference between a publisher and a developer.

I think most people don't care who makes or publishes games, I believe most people just want to play fun games. I think its the same for movies & TV shows. However, I think most people care about who the author(s) of books are though.

For example, I want to see the movie "Bridesmaids" yet I don't know any of the actresses' names, who directed or published the movie because I just care if it's good.

Well, that's absolutely sad if a person can't be bothered to learn that. Guess that's all I have to say about that.

tell me about it...

where are the real journalists at? why is it that real interviews never happen? and if it does its just to prais the lates game and never get down to the real heavy hitter questions..

i would ask how many games you have to go through in order to have bugs at a minimum at launch..

its just crazy. you would think after making fallout that they learned their lesson and have the ground work laid out for new vegas yet it still had just as many bugs if not more.. wtf happens during dev time?


i know they didnt make it but anything that bethesda is involved in always has game breaking bugs.. i guess they just never give enough dev time.. rush rush rush!

What about the cheating AI? I'm sick of getting killed in 1 shot by a pistal.

antz11042708d ago

Lol, what game are you playing? We get it that you don't like the game, stop trolling.

DavidMacDougall2707d ago

What are you talking about?

antz11042707d ago

Ive seen you here before in the Brink stories, talking about 1 shot kills at higher levels. I've never seen it nor has anyone I know, and Splash Damage has said that one shot kills are impossible. Give it up.

I fear that skyrim will be a huge disappointment at launch. I am about done with bethesda. If they screw up skyrim I am going to just give up with games forever. I miss the days before internet when you got a game that actually worked right out of the box.

I really wish they would hire an outside studio to check over their games prior to release...I mean clearly they either don't have the manpower to check over whats been done or they just don't care enough to attempt to patch/fix whats wrong.

Games shouldn't be released if the quality isn't there.
