  1. Great to see them patching it =] I’m waiting until christmas for this as I wanted to wait for a patch to sort out at least a few of the bugs

  2. Phew, that is one long list of fixes!

  3. Good to have all the above fixed but does it fix the spinning heads, backward moonwalking dogs or the constant slight pausing/freezing i’ve been hearing about?

  4. My god was there anything that actually worked properly? It’s nice to see them working to fix so much but surely so much shouldn’t need fixing anyway!

  5. great, so the GOTY edition will probably work as intended when i pick it up :)

  6. Still no fix for the ‘I Could Make You Care’ side quest then, it glitched on me and she wouldn’t say anything :(

  7. How in the hell was the game allowed to be released with all those issues ??
    Somebody needs to be handed their P45 imo.
    I know the issues are now being addressed, but c’mon, get a grip.

  8. How big is this patch?

  9. But does it actually work?

    • As im playing it right now.. NO! AAARGH! STOP CRASHING YOU USELESS EFFING GAME!!

      • Trading FNV in for AC: Brotherhood was the best game swap I made all year. Freeing up 15gb of Bethesda game data & saves felt good too.

        Sorry Bethesda & Obsidian – I won’t be buying your games day-one ever again, if at all.

  10. good game overall. I patched yesterday and have crash 1 time since.
