Xbox 360 users also reporting resistance glitch, dragon bugs, and gameplay glitches as a result of Skyrim's 1.2 update.
This does not bode well for Bethesda. Skyrim is such a great game. It's a shame that the majority of headlines about the game have to do with bugs.
Worst coding this gen. Yeah, I realize that with open world games comes bugs, I can deal with that, but poor coding that make a game unplayable is unacceptable. Holding off purchase till it gets sorted out.
"Worst coding this gen." Ironically enough I'd give that title to Codemasters this gen, their last few releases have been filled with bugs and if you were "lucky" to get a patch at all it always seemed to break more than it fixed.
This patch seems to have been a complete letdown across all the consoles. It's disappointing because the game really is great when it's running properly, who the hell was doing QA for this?
Yeah agreed....Its actually made the 360 ver. worse than before the patch (check the Bethesda forums), i mean WTF!! This is just a mess right now......
I've had a chance to play it pre-patch on xbox and didn't have any issues whatsoever other than some not so impressive textures, getting it on ps3 soon hopefully they can fix the lag. I'm going to check the forums soon, interested to see the amount of backlash they must be getting for this.
oh. the irony..
Not me! ;)
Haa Haaahh !
GoTY here folks...lol
I guess the folk at Bethesda thought that the 360 version was far too stable for a game they developed.
Guess I won't be updating.
And this is the system they prefer to work on which I find funny.
Pc version is the best, besides this game is much more complicated to program than say... Modern warfare 3. Bethesda still did a great job!
Bub'd you down for bringing MW3 into the topic...where'd that come from?
So you know how to program games? What are you doing here then?
Meant to reply to the comment above me, sorry.
>< this game is buggy on consoles period and the patches are just making it worse.
I don't know why people are still shocked that Bethesda can't code properly. I mean, it's only their third game this gen.... It puts everyone in a horrible position. It's a great game, the atmosphere is amazing, the scale is amazing... but it's so glitchy and buggy, it kills the immersion. If it wasn't for the game being as good as it is, I would definitely ward people off it... but now we're rewarding Bethesda for learning nothing from Oblivion and Fallout 3. Same engine, same mess. If Bethesda are going to specialise in large scale, open world games, they need to start developing them like they know what they are doing.
Yeah, as much as it pains me, I've decided to cross this game off of my xmas list and just wait until the GOTY version comes out (1 year?) and, hopefully, they have the most glaring bugs and glitches patched up properly. I want to love playing this game and I don't want the experience ruined by all the glitches and bugs. Don't know why Bethesda can't get this right...no more money from me until they do...
Couldn't of said it better myself. With that said, Skyrim does not deserve GOTY.
Happened to me!! My guy wouldnt absorb the dragons soul, and dragons that i had just recently killed are fleshy again... so lame!!!!!!!
PC version is steam so when they release any patches for my PC version these will be forced on me :(
can't you just set the game to not auto update?
I've never tried m8 i'll have to look into it. But atm my games been fine no hitches 55 hours in loving it. Don't want a patch messin things up for me.
just disconnect your intermet...
