I'm glad that FC2 and Fallout3 came out when they did. I'd done one complete run through of Clear Sky, and I think it's great, but I don't want to play it for a while until it's fixed or at least as fixed as it is going to get.
Even though at this point it doesn't crash all that often (well, it isn't guaranteed to crash every time I play anymore), I still feel like I'm walking on eggshells in the game world just waiting for everything to go titsup at any moment. It kind of hampers the experience.
So, I'm going to put it down for a while. I think it's a tremendously good game in principle, they just need to sort it out so that it's also a good--or at least passable--game in practice as well.
I'm under the impression that this patch is not the one I'm waiting for. Maybe the next one.
