Skyrim Update: Patch For A Patch
Patches for patches. That's always fun.
After Bethesda released a patch for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which was designed to address a number of issues (including massive game lag on the PS3 version when the save file gets too big), the results were a mixed bag. Some gamers said the patch worked beautifully while others saw some...funny things.
Dragons flying backwards was actually kinda common if you check YouTube, and other strange maladies kicked in as well, such as foes getting pummeled across the map as if you were a giant. So, Bethesda has announced another update to hopefully erase this new host of admittedly comical issues. The patch will come to the PC first next week, and then the PS3 and Xbox 360 a little later.
The publisher promises continued vigilance; i.e., more updates in the coming months, along with the game's dev kit (yeah, mod tools) for the PC version. So unfortunately, those backwards-flying dragons will probably go away after this next patch...but maybe other things will pop up for the sake of comedy relief.
