[Kotaku] Brace yourself, Fallout 4 is a Bug-Apocalypse - Page 3

post #21 of 453
Funny how they announced a month ago that the game went Gold. Hilarious! What a bunch of clowns! I realize that in most cases Gold mean the development/content is complete, but come on...What have they done in this last month? And are they really expecting people to believe that they didn't know about these bugs?! Of course they did! They just figured they'll release the game to cash in and try to fix it later.
Pathetic developers are pathetic! State of gaming nowadays is in the toilet! And some people will defend them to no end, even though all they care about is money and laughing all the way to the bank.

In any case, as long as it's not as bad as New Vegas was on launch day (it was a stuttery, crash-to-desktop mess that made me realize the value of F5), it'll probably just be moderately annoying at worst. I don't get full of hatred for buggy games like some other posters here, and I certainly don't think it's necessary to wage a 30-page holy war about it, since it's... a game.

Technically gold means that you have a build that will burn into DVDs. In any case there is nothing wrong with day 1 patches, between going gold and release day the QA process goes on. Most likely they knew about those bugs,or the most important of them and they were deemed "Known Shippable" (yes I work in the games industry for a big company, bigger than Beth actually and it happens all the time)-

R9 290X, running the game on 1440p it stucks at 20fps, splash screen, movies,cutscenes, everything, I suspect it is radeon specific, anyone else having the same issue? Any workarounds?

"Journalists" who report bullcrap like this should be given a permanent gag order. Oh my god? ?!?!?! A GAME HAS BUGS ON RELEASE? HOW DARE IT! Better spam this all over my crappy website to get more views and money.

Give it a week, AMD will have better drivers and Fallout 4 will have 2 patches already.

It's Kotaku, not sure what else you should expect from them. Kotaku is known for their click bait gaming articles. Not to mention the false information and and blatant exaggeration.

Yeah but in their defense, their games are usually huge. They need to work on a new engine, thatll get rid of some of the bugs.

Seriously... we all knew it would have bugs.

 

Personally, I don't expect them to test thousands of different iterations of the game to work everything out before it is released.  The game will still be great, major bugs will get fixed and the minor bugs will still be minor or there will be ways to get around them.

This isn't the only source claiming it has a lot of bugs:
Quote:
First off: For a Bethesda game, "only" encountering a few CTDs is an improvement. GN's Steve, benchmarking the game, ran into two crash-to-desktop events (one involving minimizing).

I had hoped Bethesda would improve on this front, especially considering how long Fallout 4 was in development, but it isn’t so.

I’ve encountered a lot of bugs, including, but not limited to: Companions getting stuck in doors, doors ceasing to work after another character goes through them first, trouble initiating fast travel, NPCs not responding when speaking, NPCs going to sleep while talking (then talking while asleep), voice-over audio overlapping or cutting-out during interaction, incorrect subtitles, issues entering and leaving settlement-building mode, and pixelated rendering of god-rays when they are partially occluded.

While this is annoying, it’s worth pointing-out that most of these bugs require a reload of a save at worst. Bethesda will also hopefully resolve bugs through patches and, at worst, I hope (and would expect) mods to address bugs not fixed by Bethesda. This was the case for Fallout 3, New Vegas, and Skyrim.

Either way, Fallout 4 is currently buggy. It’s tolerable, but annoying; more is expected from a game that’s been in development this long.

It's even okay to pre-order, because "we all know it's gonna be good".

there is way too much truth there.

more than there should be.
