Fallout: New Vegas has been plagued with some horrible bugs and glitches since its release last week, leaving a very bitter taste in the mouths of many.
A PC patch was released over a week ago and now the updates for the PS3 and Xbox 360 are finally available for download over their respective online services. Even though Bethesda Softworks are stating that the patch fixes hundreds of bugs and issues, it seems that people are still complaining about ongoing issues.
You can go out and grab it now, and hopefully if you have been having any issues, this will sort it out. If not, you can be sure that they are already working on the next one in the hopes of finally getting everything sorted out.
On a side note, I actually had some major bug issues when reviewing Fallout 3 two years ago (wow… that long ago already) that had important people in the story just turn up dead for no reason, making some missions impossible. One major character even disappeared, and the map said that he was in the main river, instead of the town. I also had multiple issues with waypoints and paths to quests being incorrect and just going in circles, so these issues are very possibly still stemming from the original design of the engine.
Let’s hope it all gets cleared up soon.
