Fallout: New Vegas Patched

As noted on the Bethesda Blog, the first patch for Fallout: New Vegas is now available automatically through Steam, where word is: "This update fixes quest and scripting issues." They say they are working on getting the console versions of Obsidian's RPG sequel patched as soon as possible, and also announce that the issue with PlayStation 3 digital preorder bonuses is now resolved.

Yeah, check out the website forums.

Which ones? The Bethesda forums or Steam?

There are some who can't even get the game to load up, crashes to desktop, blue screen crap. Totally unacceptable!

It's impossible for places to test on every system configuration known to man so give the indignation a rest. Totally unacceptable would be every customer having that same issue. As someone who previously worked in the industry a long time ago, you could have 1000 testers(most games have less than 30) working 24 hours a day and they would still not uncover even half of the issues that 100,000 customers will in a single day of gameplay.

They've already patched up some scripting errors as those are easy to find and fix compared to pouring over hundreds of memory dumps trying to trace a CTD. So be patient for a few days, quite a few problems uncovered already have been related to hardware specific configurations, not the game itself.

It is just stupid to say it is a issue nVidia has to fix because issues only show up on nVidia cards but EVERY OTHER GAME works perfectly fine. This is just more shitty programing and lack of Q&A from obsidian.

Except that's not true in the slightest, Nvidia fixes issues with sometimes dozens of games with every driver update and so does AMD for that matter. Bethesda did Q/A on this game, not Obsidian and Bethesda has a fair sized support department. You simply can't catch everything. Not catching the Steam Cloud bug is far more egregious than an unforeseen CTD.
